Sharehouse Revisited

I’m currently working in a regional area and I have to say I am loving it sick. I’m a Country Mouse thought the week and a City Mouse on weekends. Best of both worlds (except for a couple of kangaroo casualties) or […]

Treason Doth Never Prosper

As I sit uncomfortably to write this column on Post-Chocolate Binge Day – aka Easter Monday – I am saddened by the ongoing fiasco that our national cricket side is embroiled in. Cheating is cheating. Whether it’s Pictionary (you know who you […]

Digital Killed The Video Store

Did you hear that Brisbane’s last video store closed recently? THIS IS SO SAD! I know I know, they don’t have a place anymore but what a pity. Who doesn’t have fond memories of trips to the video store and fighting about […]

Sex and Politics

I have a book running at work on how long the Barna-baby scandal will stay in the news. Having previously worked in politics and knowing first-hand the amount of work-related shagging that goes on, this story came as absolutely no surprise to […]

Lady Marketing

Ladies, aren’t you tired of how having a vagina is making so many things unnecessarily complicated? I am. Often times when I hear/read/see things like the subject of this column, I wonder if I am under-medicated and if these things are really […]

Frankenstein Syndrome

I saw something really strange the other day. I was going for a walk and stopped to talk to/pat this dog and – how can I put this? – the dog LOOKED LIKE A FREAK SHOW! Now Dear Reader, I firmly believe […]

Left Out

As a member of a minority group I was thrilled to find out that just like me, Tina Fey, Rod Laver, Ghandi, Robert De Niro and Napoleon are all Lefties. Variously known as South Paws, Cacky Handers and Marked by the Devil […]

Plastic Fantastic

Did you see recently that Queensland will ban single-use shopping bags from 2018? Hallelujah! I think the sooner they ban them the better. I don’t think they should stop there either just quietly – get rid of them everywhere I say. Especially on airplanes in the […]

That Gets My Goat (Yoga)

My Bestie is a yoga instructor – and yes she’s impossibly fit and bendy and glows with good health. It makes me SICK quite frankly. (She’s the one married to the smokin’ hot Italian who also an amazing cook – so unfair). I can’t […]

Built To Last

I read recently that the Antarctic Heritage Trust found a fruit cake that was over 100 years old AND still edible. The tin was a bit mankey but apparently the cake itself is OK. My guess is all the brandy in it has had […]

How To Be A Man

I was in an airport lounge the other day flicking through the fancy glossy quarterlies, eating heaps of yummy stuff, having a wine etc.. in fact it was reminiscent of that episode of Kath & Kim where Kath and Kel miss their flight and […]

Dr Doolittle

So you know how I can talk to animals….. Oh – haven’t I told you about that? Yeah, I can communicate with animals. No really, I can. Especially dogs but most animals actually – although fish are tricky and frogs for the obvious […]

Change Up

Did you hear that Daniel Day Lewis is retiring from acting? THIS A TRAGEDY! Absolute tragedy. What a freakin’ talent. He won three Oscars for Best Actor – the only man ever to do so – and I defy anyone to watch him and […]

The Stepford Underpants

Do you believe in Darwin’s Theory of Evolution Dear Reader? I do. Brad Pitt says it so well in the movie Moneyball – adapt or die. You have to keep up with the times. Technology alone, my God! Sometimes by the time I […]

Modern Day Castaway

In keeping with the usual calamity that is my life, the other night I locked myself out of my house. Without my phone. Or wallet. Just the running gear I was wearing. As it turns out, there are no public phone boxes […]

What Nan’s Wisdom Taught My Mum

Ahhh Mother’s Day – a day for makers of hand creams everywhere to rejoice! Also a day to appreciate all those amazing women in our lives who have loved us, taught us, nurtured us and given us such wonderful role models to emulate. Sometimes […]

Kerbside (& Relationship) Clean Up

It’s true that Old Adage “One woman’s trash is another woman’s treasure” which is why I suspect it’s an Old Adage. This is clearly demonstrated by the annual Kerbside Clean Up currently happening in my suburb. There is nothing like watching impoverished Uni students […]
