Blue Note

Pamela needs to get a grip. I appreciate her attention to detail – it’s why we hired her in the first place – but she’s always getting hung up on specifics that are far outside the realm of her role, and it’s driving everyone bonkers. She claims she’s a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), and that …

Sad Broken Glass

Let me set the scene for you. My property has a big front yard where my children and dog play every chance they get. I have a twelve-year-old daughter and ten-year-old son who both love footy and are developing their skills in their respective teams. When they’re not developing their skills on the oval, they’re …

Hot Home Warning

I have to warn my wife. She’s in great danger, but my phone isn’t working. I’ve had to use a public library to post on a blog and hope this message gets out to her. Unfortunately, my usual social media sites are all blocked here, so I’m doing this as a last resort. There’s a …

House of Mirrors

I want to sell my house of mirrors. Buying it seemed like a good idea at first. I mean, who wouldn’t want a two-story house that’s basically an amusement park attraction? But, well, let’s just say the novelty wore off pretty quick. I haven’t found my bedroom in weeks and I keep thinking the bathroom …

Ghost Repairs

It’s been pretty hard to get repairs ever since we were turned into ghosts. Ghost Cow reckons we should find a Ghost repair shop, but I keep telling him those don’t exist. He’s a stubborn old fool, but our trio wouldn’t be the same without him. He’s got a great sense of humour and loves …

Boating Joys

I think I would like to work with boats. I’ve been considering a career change lately, as I’m not exactly happy waiting tables and dealing with rich people who think I deserve $15 an hour. I’ve always had a fascination with boats, ever since my dad brought one home. My sister and I used to …

Coolest of Pleasures

When I’m driving in my car, I like to have the air conditioner on and the windows down. It makes it feel more exciting, the air blowing on my face and past my ears, as I fly down the freeway at a hundred km/s per hour. Some people say it’s a waste, that there’s no …

Drag Race Dangers

I’ve procrastinated on this for a while, but since I was known as the Skeleton Smasher back in my home realm, I suppose I should be doing something about that skeleton problem now plaguing Melbourne. I bet one of my wayward brethren cast a spell they had no control over, and now there’s a merry …

Gingerbread Master

Why am I always taking on ridiculous tasks that aren’t my responsibility? I really need to stop that. This time, it’s curating an exhibition of gingerbread from around the world for the local bowls club’s annual Christmas fundraiser. Marge had the idea, and I foolishly put up hand to execute it, not realising that it …
