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 …

My Sudden Mission

It’s not every day that you suddenly have the best job ever, after having had the most boring job ever, but sometimes life just throws curve balls at you in that way. I’ll take it. Most of what I do is making sure things have been filed correctly, along with a whole lot of copying …

City of Castles

If it were up to me, EVERY home in Melbourne would be a castle. And once everyone has castles… no one will. Mwa-ha-ha! No, wait, sorry. Once everyone in Melbourne has a castle as a home, we’ll be known as the City of Ten Thousand Castles, and then I suppose I’ll go down in history …

The Grass is Greener

Victoria, as per usual, is not cooperating. It is not playing ball, and I’m getting tired of it. I lock down the house, I prepare for the wave of incoming heat like an invading army, and I take the day off work saying that I have a serious temperature (it’s technically true!), and then there’s …

Must Move Quickly

Ah, video games…they have so much to teach us, if only we would listen. And that’s not basically how I live my life, because any seconds spent NOT going fast are seconds that are being wasted. That’s the whole reason I got a job as a courier, and it’s the whole reason that people think …

They’ve also recently started posting a saucy hot take on the latest …
