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 […]

The Mercy Film Review

FILM REVIEW:     The Mercy STARRING:         Colin Firth, Rachel Wiesz, David Thewlis, Ken Stott OPENS:              8 March 2018 First things first – I LOVE Colin Firth, or Frothy as I like to […]

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 […]

Chrimirthmus Day

Hands up who has PHD? (Post-holiday depression)? Yeah me too. Gawd the first week back at work is hard to get into isn’t it? I have a good friend who takes the entire month of January off on the grounds that “nothing […]

Public (House) Benefit

I had a few days off recently and spent some quality time in some of Brisbane (and Sydney’s) finest public houses. I find it hard to have a bad time at the pub! Talking to Randoms, having a laugh with your friends, […]

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 […]

Revival Survival

Someone at work this week dropped a bombshell. They announced that Countdown is coming back. “WHAT?!” I squawked. “Are you serious?” I was really excited for about two minutes and then I thought that sometimes revisiting the past is not a good idea. This […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
