The best solar…

Today’s Human Classes sprung a surprise test on us, which I continue to think is quite unfair. I said so, but our teacher said that “surprise tests are a natural part of the human experience. You cannot expect to always be able to pause time, or teleport to our mother-ships, or simply eat our conversation …

Counterproductive Robots

Those folks on Lizard’s Lair are such good fun to watch. I swear, the producers just go out and try to recruit the worst people possible for television, which thus makes them the best people for television, and they’re being held to a strict 80/20 rule. As in, they have to recruit that many in …

Merry Pile Up

The idea was to have a bunch of cars all decked out like reindeer, with a Santa ‘sleigh’ car following on behind them. All very whimsical, but someone didn’t check with their local Ringwood car mechanic; in fact, a few people didn’t. Maybe it was ego, or negligence, or a combination of many things, but …

An Evening Cruise

Boating isn’t something my family and I do often, owing to our tragic sun allergy, but we did recently have the opportunity to have a bit of a sailing adventure. We were invited to a late-night boat gathering, just cocktails and casual business conversation on the deck of a luxury liner. I’m slightly ashamed to …

Sharing with Sandrine

Oh gosh, watching Sandra try to be nice is like that video of a puppy taking a snowball inside and trying to play with it next to the fire. It’s so sad and funny at the same. I know she’s making an effort, because it’s obvious. Smiling like she’s been doing lately probably shaves her …

Doors of Perception

Doors. What’s the go? How did they come to be a thing? I mean, they make practical sense, don’t get me wrong. But surely they could have come out differently. Like, they could take the form of a spherical boulder that’s pushed out of the way to reveal a circular hole. Or they could be …

People Doing THINGS

I just want people doing things. Which is why People Doing Things suits me so very well. It’s just a camera, focused on people doing their regular jobs, and you get to be a fly on the wall. It changes every day, today it’s focused on various companies near Mornington doing pest control, and that’s …

Dreams of Conveyancing

Saturday night is silly sci-fi night, and that is a time-honoured tradition. Don’t you be saying a coarse word against stupid sci-fi night. It’s what gets me through the week. Generally, me and the GF will search for terrible sci-fi movies- often made in a bygone era with potato CGI but sometimes more recent- and …

Hello, Ocean Phobia

I’m not sure what’s worse: my crippling fear of the ocean, or that awful internet meme song. Unfortunately, said meme song is what’s distracting me from my fear of the sea, so they’re very much a package deal at this stage. As soon as my mind starts to drift, even if I’m congratulating myself for …
