For great justice!

With Marita I took some time off work this afternoon to watch my friends Tony and Rae* at their VCAT hearing, as their former agents (plonkers) and landlord (only the agent turned up) tried to claim some of their bond money for (a) dents on a garage door that was part of a garage not  ... [More]

Labour Day

Got home on Sunday afternoon to find I’d left the back door unlocked for the two days I was away. Well done Daniel. Ah well, no harm done as it happens. I’ll be checking it doubly-carefully next time I go out… Whoops. Went to the park today, and got shat on by a very small  ... [More]

Dream: Emergency

Dreamt last night that I was walking in the city and came across three blokes in business suits.

20 minutes into the future

In the late 80s and early 90s, I watched a lot of TV. I also recorded a lot of TV. It’s left me with a rather large collection of VHS tapes, probably in the region of 250. As the 90s changed from “early” to “mid” it finally dawned on me (Eureka!) that I wasn’t getting  ... [More]

Weather and stuff

You what? 2nd of March and I can see my own breath in the air when I go to get the newspaper?! Last night I did the unthinkable. I succumbed to a telemarketer. I know I shouldn’t. But somehow I did. I didn’t actually buy anything, but when a woman rang up and was selling  ... [More]
