Building Roadblocks

Remember in my last update when I told you that everything was going smoothly and that I was really happy? Well, things have taken a turn for the worst, which tends to happen on large projects like this. I’m disappointed that I’ve reached a bump in the road, but it’s not unexpected. What happened, you …

Air Conditioning Love

I am living a love story. It’s without a doubt one for the ages and it is the type of story that people write about, sing about, scream about – you name it. I never thought that I would be the type of person that would be lucky enough to find unconditional true love, but …

New Game?

I knew it was going to be a mistake to kill off the characters in our Hardware Store Bonanza game. The players are naturally upset about it, but they refuse to make new characters and start the adventure again, even though their previous plan was terrible. The RPG system didn’t even have rules for fighting, …

Big Rort

It’s been quite a week for financial scandals. As a financial journalist specialising in the technology arena, that’s good news for me – bad news is better than no news, as far as I’m concerned.

Beggars Can’t Be Choosers

A drive with friends in the country: what could be better? Well… how about not breaking down in the middle of nowhere, and having to walk 45 minutes down the road to get enough reception to call for a mobile mechanic? That’d be somewhat better. Unfortunately, it seems like this occurrence is part and parcel …

Caught in the Crossfire

I hate being caught in the middle of things. My high school careers counsellor always said I’m a pacifist by nature, and that I’d be a good diplomat because I can see both sides of an issue. What he failed to realise is that, while it’s true that I can see both sides, it’s precisely …

Draining Situation

What’s more disconcerting than waking up to a kitchen sink that refuses to drain? Answer: there are also gurgling sounds coming from deep inside the pipes. Bonus points for having a serious pile of dishes that needs doing, thanks to hubby choosing this morning to make a week’s worth of tagline before work and leaving …
