Superior Car Repairs

My best mate is obsessed with living in Adelaide. He has such a superiority complex with these sorts of things. No matter what he does, how he does it, where he lives or the products he uses – he has to convince everyone he has it better than everyone else. It’s bizarre and it’s the …

Important Tyre Service

I’m driving aimlessly even though I do have somewhere to go. Things don’t seem real right now. Less than twenty-four hours ago I received some horrific news and I’ve been a zombie ever since. I’m trying to keep it together for the people who love me but I don’t know when I’m going to recover …

Obligatory Car Service

Hello hello! Another update. I’m currently getting my car checked by the local mechanic in Hobart. I didn’t have any time to explain to the mechanic what I needed and why, so I just left a note on my driver’s seat and went to a local hostel for some food and a nap. I’ve woken …

Love My Mechanic

Would you believe that a friend of mine had the audacity to recommend that I stop going to my mechanic and start going to hers? I was shocked. Does she not know that finding the right mechanic is like finding the perfect pair of jeans? Finding a mechanic that is just right takes work and …

Dragon Rider

The other day I saw a sticker on someone’s car that said, “My other ride is a dragon”, which got me thinking about how lucky they must be. I didn’t even realise that dragons were real, let alone that you could own them like cars. I’m not really sure why they were driving at all. …

The Car ‘Show’

Every year I show up the the automotive Christmas parade and forget to bring the popcorn. This year I need to set a reminder on my phone, or something, because they never actually sell popcorn there and that’s a massive wasted opportunity. First year was the one where Santa was missing, so they did the …

Thieves beware

If the ball is too big for your mouth, you should probably get yourself a new ball, because THAT ball has been in someone else’s mouth and it’s probably infected with all kinds of germs and such. Honestly, I fail to comprehend why anyone would be stealing anyone else’s ball. Such silliness. I’m most vexed. …

Boot Camp

Well, that’s Sandrine off on her funny little holiday. Come to think of it, I’ve heard that those car boot camps (not to be confused with ‘car-boot camps’, where you go camping in a car boot) can be quite brutal, so maybe calling it a ‘holiday’ isn’t correct. We DO seem to have quite a …
