I’m just saaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah busy

When did it happen? When did such a travesty against humankind take place? When did aioli replace tomato sauce as the go-to accompanying condiment for hot chips? I know there are probably heaps of pro-aioli people shaking their heads in disappointment at the lack of complexity in my condiment choice. But hey! I’m a simple person. And I fucking [...]

The super amazing power of meditation and mindfulness

March 24, 2017 // 0 Comments

I’ve decided that 2017 is my year of self-improvement. Like when I’m 80 years old, I’d like to think back to 2017 and remember be like “dayuuuummm 2017 was where that chart of my self-improvement that I keep framed in my living room really spiked up and reflected the sales “forecast” of any aspiring start-up in 2017”, ie. Be a [...]

The 4 types of ‘Horrible Employees’

March 1, 2017 // 1 Comment

For all these years of my corporate life, I’ve complained, then I’ve moaned, then I’ve whinged, then I’ve sighed, then I’ve sarcastically learnt to deal with my issues with work by writing about them on a public blog like some corporate-martyr. I’ve always felt that it was ME who was getting the raw deal. That it was just me against [...]

Getting real with my addiction to trashy television

February 14, 2017 // 0 Comments

Have you ever looked at an article that’s titled something like “You Won’t Believe What She Said” and internally say to yourself “[rolling eyes] urgh that’s so lame because it’s so obviously click bait”. But then you proceed to click on the article, justifying your click on the basis that you have identified it as ‘click bait’ [...]

99% of all Australians won’t read this

Today someone brought KFC chips onto the bus. That motherfucker. The worst was that he was doing that surreptitious eat-out-of-the-bag, thinking that no one noticed. But WE DID YOU SELFISH DICKHEAD. How dare you come onto the bus, with the flaming beauty that are KFC chips – the only chips known to make your nostrils feel like they’re Heidi [...]

How to balance work friends and not get slapped

October 11, 2016 // 0 Comments

“ERGHMEGHERRRD I heard that she slapped you, is that true???” No that’s not a quote, overheard in the locker of a high school girls’ locker room [interestingly I don’t really have many crazy American-style, girls’ locker room stories despite going to an all-girl school for 10 years….in fact the craziest thing I remember was when we [...]

Suddenly 30…lessons learnt thus far

July 7, 2016 // 0 Comments

Last night I had another strange dream….I dreamt that this large, red, hulk-esque monster, with no neck, kept bowling large boulders and me and saying in a deep, husky [but scary-husky, not sexy-husky=] “MOVE, MOVE, MOVE” every time it bowled a boulder at me. Now you know I’m all for the meaning of dreams and how they absolutely MUST mean [...]

Too many arseholes, too little bullets

Writing can be fucking hard. I’m writing this in past tense but this writers block is well and truly present. You see, in an effort to get re-inspired to write again I’ve so far resorted to so many tactics, tricks and basic magic to get myself to start writing again [see…I told you just wrote ‘write again’ twice in one [...]

Cut yourself some slack and go cycle in the dark

December 7, 2015 // 2 Comments

Below is just a copy and paste of a speech I did last week…and when I say “speech” I really mean this is just a copy paste of a standard blog post minus the ‘speaking prompts’ that I originally had in there. You know things like “[pause for rapturous laughter now]” which in hindsight was not very useful in the end. Anyway here [...]
