Respect The Feet

Feet really are wondrous things, and underrated in the extreme. I mean, they’re the chariots of our body temples, aren’t they? Not only are they perfectly calibrated to support the bizarre arrangement of moving parts that constitutes the human form, but they’re also hardy enough to withstand being subject to the force of gravity for …

Subterranean Complexity

Everything is so much easier when you’re camping. I know that a lot of people would beg to differ on this, but I stand by it. I’m talking about routine tasks like sweeping floors, cleaning bathrooms and washing dishes. First of all, there’s just less of everything – less surface area to scrub, less cookware …

Dubious Honour

Keeping a car running is an endless task, isn’t it? The reality really punctures that bubble from you’re 18, you’ve just got your Ps and you’re dying to experience the freedom of car ownership. As with many things, there’s some truth in that outlook, but really, it sometimes feels like the cons outweigh the pros. …

Leave Cartoons Alone

Oh, wonderful; they’re making a live-action blockbuster movie out of Cute Aluminium Guardian Knight. Everyone knows that Hollywood ruins every single cartoon they touch. Remember the live-action ‘Toast is the Smell’? It’s always bad. To say nothing of that awful fan-made short inspired by Pretty Car Dealer Sailor Hoon, which was so far from the …

Always Driving

When you travel in the community, no day looks the same, and I like it that way. I don’t need to be a hamster running on a ball, even if that ball is connected to the power supply, and running on that ball keeps the building running. Some people are totally fine with that sort …

Treat Electricians Well

Alright, so maybe we need to give our organisation name a bit of thought. PETE looks really nice when you put it all in caps, but it doesn’t work in theory. People think we’re misspelling the name of that other organisation, the one about animals, and others have said that they just think it’s the …

Peace in Our Time

Ideally, there would be harmony in the office. And you’d think that would be a given, with it just being me here, alone, but I STILL manage to get stressed by my co-workers. My printer is a hunk of junk, for real. It always manages to start working just as I’m about to replace it, …

The Old Commute

Everyone is into silly video games nowadays, and watching the television devices. I don’t want to be one of THOSE people, but it’s true: we had it worse when we was younger, because we didn’t have all this technology. I got my start in the marine welding industry when I was a teenager, and there …

A Brighter Future

It was quite a dull, boring discussion at the Futurist Club tonight. Usually I enjoy myself well enough, but when they start talking about housing, I just don’t feel like I can relate. I see the future for young people, and it’s not one of home ownership. She-who-must-not-be-named had great promises, saying that eventually the …

Ode to Cooling

It’s true, you don’t tend to see many complications of poetry entirely dedicated to heating and cooling. But so far as I’m concerned, my anthology was inspired by the seasons, just as were many great works of art. I’m just going for a bit of a narrower scope…and if people can’t see that, then I …
