The Premier’s Predicament

Well, I didn’t expect that to backfire so spectacularly. Turns out I’m the only one that came into work today, all ready for our next tabletop role-playing session of Grottos and Goblins. Who knew that my entire staff would be too weak-willed to come into work with the air conditioner broken? Even though the state …

My First Tattoo

I’ve heard the saying “everyone remembers their first” my entire life. And it’s true, with each of my new firsts symbolising an important stage of transition in my life.  I remember the first time I rode a bike, for example. My parents took me to the local oval and promised they would hold onto me. …

This Metal Steed

Bah, vehicles! BAH, I say! Time was that you could get anywhere in the kingdom by simply leaping astride your gigantic swine, performing a simple weightless enchantment and soaring through the sky, conducting the winds like an orchestra to push you to your destination. I learned today that people of this realm have been driving …

The Big Race

I’m ready for the race of my life. It’ll be fast, but I’m faster. It’ll be tough, but I’m tougher. It’ll be insane, but I lost my mind several years ago. For two hours I’ll be driving from Brisbane to Brigalow, with a checkpoint in Toowoomba. Auto electrical shops will be happy, given how beat …

I have always been terrified of horror movies. I’m the type of person that will watch a scary movie with friends and then have nightmares for a week. I don’t know why I’m so affected by them. And more importantly, I don’t know why I keep watching them. I can’t even count of the number …

A Magical Wedding

https://images.assetsdelivery.com/compings_v2/tonobalaguer/tonobalaguer1210/tonobalaguer121000197.jpg Last night I was reading the final book in the “Boy With the Lightning Scar” series, and I got up to the big wedding scene between Will Beasley and Flour. It’s such a great chapter, filled with toasts and celebrations. It’s truly wonderful. But I can’t help but ask: where did they get their …

Homeowner Nightmare

I just found termites in my walls. That’s got to be the last thing you want when you buy a house. We’ve only been here for three months, and we’ve got to get the exterminators in. We were so excited to move in, and the last few months have been incredible. Other than the horror-bugs, …

Big Idea

  Don’t you just love it when you look up ‘bathroom trends’, hoping for a bit of inspiration that can translate from the pages of Rogue Living to your humble abode, and all that comes up is thousands of images of bathrooms approximately the size of your entire house? I mean, that’s all well and …
