Not Easy Being Freezy

Look, being a scientist is not as easy as everyone seems to think. I get no respect from my fellow scientists because of my lack of ethics and willingness to use live subjects, even in tests where they aren’t necessary. And then it’s really hard to get a research grant from the universities when, like …

All New Rules

Another country, another set of rules to learn. Australia isn’t totally different to Ireland, I suppose. Same language, and people are always getting our accent mixed up with that of a close neighbour. Still, emigrating is such a huge hassle, in so many ways that no one warns you about. I have to get a …

Car Love

It’s about time they made a reality TV game show that was entirely to do with cars. We have reality TV shows about literally everything else, so why not cars? Although I think the network had to tone this one down a little to make it appeal to a general audience. ‘The Tachometer’ is about …

Invest, People!

It took me a while to understand the ins and outs of business, but I really think I’ve got it now. All I needed was a bit of experience, a lot of trial and error, and a bit of humility. I can now say that I own a construction company that puts its employees first, …

Something to Do

It’s day two of my long service leave, and already I’m pretty sure I want to go back to work. I planned for this, as well. Gave myself a huge to-do list, planned out each day, and made sure to get a new number so that I could totally disassociate myself from work and everything …

Incredible Solar Panels

Oh, how my opinions have changed for the better. Time was when I thought that solar energy was destined to fail because those panels being out in the rain would cause all the power to wash off. Then I did a bit of research and found out that they have a special reflective coating that …

Property Advocates, Easy

Have to admit, I don’t know what all the older wizards on the internet are talking about. They’re always moaning about this realm, and how they can’t understand the strange things these people do with their lives, and there’s an entire forum dedicated to revenge plots on the king for banishing them which I think …

Own It!

My daughter’s new apartment is lovely, but I’m a little bit disappointed, if I’m honest. I’ve always felt that half the point of owning property is being at liberty to customise it, yet she’s opposed to anything that might interfere with the fresh-out-of-the-box quality that currently characterises the place. She won’t even put hang pictures …

To Fear is Human

My Human Classes are going fairly well, although we recently reached the module on fears and phobias, and I’ve been having some…technical issues? Our tutor has said that flaws define people as human beings, so if any of us in the class are utterly flawless or perfect life forms, then that would simply not do …
