The Second Epilogue

Frankie and I decided to head to the hardware store, just to remember old times. It had been a month since our climactic battle with Sewer Wizard, and my best friend had absorbed the evil half of himself. Space Wizard left us a note, explaining how he needed to leave for our own safety. It …

Tour Final Day

This is it. The last day of the book tour promoting my memoir, I Was a Teenage Air Conditioner. It’s been a real honour to speak to air conditioners and humans alike about the struggles my people go through. The work isn’t done, though. I still have radio interviews, podcasts and online articles to do, …

First Home Buyer

What I’ve found over my years is that people underestimate how hard it is to buy their first home. I’m now thirty and at the age where about half my friends are homeowners and the other half are not. Many of my friends went to university, whereas I did an apprenticeship and so I became …

The New Office

We got a new boss at work today, and he’s a bit of a weird guy. His name is Mitchel Scarn, and he’s just moved to Australia from somewhere in America that nobody’s ever heard of. Scranton or something. Apparently he used to manage a paper company there too, but honestly I don’t think this …

Mechanics Are Vital

Sometimes I like to get philosophical and think deeply about the world. I think about the mechanics of our society (pun intended), and what we need to do to be able to live cooperatively. I consider the inner workings of how we function, and which jobs are necessary for our survival versus to the jobs …

Dial Back Storage

Why do home these days have so many freaking cupboards? Do people really have that much stuff that needs to be stashed out of view? What happened to a few simple, freestanding, open faced shelves? All these questions and more occur to me as I embark on the mission of buying an apartment.  In fairness, …

I’m So Fit!

Okay, as the title states, I’m fit as can be. Like, honestly, I’m the fittest person I know by far. I’m a gymnast and a personal trainer, and it feels like every minute of my day is dedicated to being healthy. Which is exactly how I like it. Here’s a run through of my average …
