My cool solution to a busted air conditioner

It had been a terribly hot weekend and I was really looking forward to going into work on Monday morning. I don’t have air conditioning at my house, but I manage to survive by taking cold baths and sleeping on the floor.  I simply hated the thought of having to use my brain in the … [Read more…]

Fame on the Beach

I have walked where the great ones have walked. Trodden where the exalted few have also trodden. The beach holiday in Lorne is going great, by the way. I know I came here for one singular purpose- well, two- but actually the accommodation we found in Lorne is really lovely and there’s a place down … [Read more…]

A Very Inconvenient Roof

Alternate sources of energy are seeing a huge rise after that show aired…you know, the one about the family who have so much trouble trying to get a roofing person in to fix a few tiles, they eventually just give up and become a family of serial killers. An Inconvenient Roof, that was it. Apparently … [Read more…]

I’d Go On TV…For a House

Reality TV is embarrassing to watch, but I’m starting to see the appeal. If you sell your soul, look stupid in front of the whole country (or the whole world, if you do something meme-worthy), spend SO much time running around doing stupid challenges and so much other tiresome stuff, you might get something decent … [Read more…]

Ute toolboxes are set to be installed

We recently got new utes for the crew, and while they are certainly up to the challenges that come with working at the circus, they are still in need of a few upgrades. This is of course stock standard for the crew here; we like to outfit our operation with custom vehicles so that we … [Read more…]

The Soundtrack of My Life

If I had one wish, and I couldn’t wish for more wishes, and I couldn’t just ask to be a genie, and I couldn’t ask for wishes to be given to all my friends, and I couldn’t wish for infinite birthday cakes, four-leaf clovers, coins to throw in a wishing well or sightings of the … [Read more…]

My Personal, Universal View on Aluminium

I might have only been in the welding industry for a year, but I don’t like the way things are going. It’s time for immediate action. I might be young, but that gives me an instant advantage since it makes me politically savvy, woke and erudite, much more perceptive and clever than everyone older than … [Read more…]

Helping a neighbour with his pool fence

Most of the time I am worried about having my work missed or not being able to do a good enough job for my superiors. This however, is me simply using the tools I have available to me to help out someone in need, in this case my neighbour Wilson. We’ve been neighbours for over … [Read more…]

My feet have been killing me recently

I have been on my feet, on average, about 13 hours a day. Considering that most people are only awake for 16 hours a day, that should put some things into perspective for you. I am on my feet almost constantly. Not just on my feet either, but moving around, walking, running, climbing and jumping. … [Read more…]

Giving Up the Brunch for Greater Things

All those years of avocados and lattes…who knew my brunch obsession would be the one main factor in me not being able to buy my own home? I’m still trying to decide it was worth it, all those years of delicious brunches with my indulgent friends. They certainly were wonderful, although their pleasure was fleeting. … [Read more…]
