Freedom Health

Apparently, moon-jumpers aren’t standard in this dimension. That’s a little disappointing, but given their general level of technology and the fact that they haven’t been entirely embroiled in war to fuel innovation for the last few decades, I’m still fairly satisfied.  No moon-jumpers, though? Those are boots, by the way, not wool garments that you …

The Truth Hurts

When I got to the conveyancing firm, the first thing the lawyers asked me was, “Why would a sentient car need to sell a house?” followed closely by, “Why does a sentient car have a house?” Yes, it’s true that I don’t need a house, but I do need a carport or garage. As to …

Hive Time

What the flip is going on with these new… perching pods? Cyber seats? Ergonomic eggs? I really don’t know what to call them. They might technically count as desk chairs, but they’re stretching the definition of that by a pretty wide margin, if that makes sense. They’re definitely designed as a place to sit while …

Servicing Company Cars

I’ve just purchased three second hand cars to use as the company cars for my business. Myself and my employees often have to drive to different clients for pitches and meetings, which we were originally doing in our own cars. As we are all from different financial backgrounds, some of the cars weren’t quite up …

Fast Lane

My dad’s always been one for schemes that strike others as bonkers, and it seems he’s still going strong with this in his 70s. This became clear to me today when he announced over lunch that he’s planning to enter a hot rod competition by grafting a rusty 1940s milk truck body onto a racing …

Bloom or Bust

I think my housemate might be letting herself get carried away with her enthusiasm for adding new plants to the garden. It’s all well and good for her to be sprucing things up around here; my concern is just that she’s buying new plants at a faster rate than she can look after them. This …

My Plumbing Book

I can’t believe my book is selling so well! Who would have thought that people actually wanted to read a story about a simple plumber going about his daily life in Melbourne? Definitely not me, that’s for sure. I just assumed that this was a book which would never see the light of day. I …
