A Shoe-In

With the awards night just 48 hours away, it’s getting towards crunch time. If I can’t finalise those shoes by COB today, I’m going to have to get serious, cancel the order and find a new pair, by which I mean send my assistant to find me a new pair. I really hope it doesn’t …

Real Piece of Wok

I could kill Vanessa! I’ve told her time and time again not to scrub my cast iron wok, and yet she’s done it again – and with that terrible cheap dishwashing liquid of hers. I’m so furious, I’ve got half a mind to call a house meeting, but I know it’ll just blow back in …

Desire to Build

I was watching television yesterday when I was struck by the sudden desire to build something. It might have had something to do with the fact that I was watching Rob the Construction Worker. The first thing I thought to do was make something out of the toy bricks my kids have lying about everywhere. …

I’m not yet convinced, mostly because it’s nearly two hours’s drive out of Brisbane, although I will admit that she has a point – it’s significantly …

Basically, there are those who think the best architecture blends seamlessly into the existing landscape, highlighting natural features and heritage elements without intruding for its own sake. Then there are those …

Sure, Robo Boss

I don’t want anyone to be alarmed, but I think Gary might be a robot, and the fact that I’m the one noticing that is quite, quite odd.  I only came to this realm a few months ago, and my entire experience with robots has been a viewing of Germinator and Germinator: Rent Assist. And …

Human Mood Board

I wish Marissa would be a bit more literal in her communications around the proposed office redesign. She’s like a human mood board, emitting a selection of impressions without explaining exactly what form they should take, how to put them together and what to emphasise. I’m sure that’s because she doesn’t know the answers herself, …
