The best thing about having an apartment in the middle of the city is that I can put on a show for the many, many commuters passing by below. I’m only three floors up, so very much visible, and I work from home as a highly successful adult tricycle designer, so I don’t have to …

I don’t know why people care whether a house is haunted or not. It’s like, just help that poor soul cross over into the void or whatever it is they want, and move on. I’m sure they couldn’t care less about rattling your cutlery drawer in the night or stealing your socks, or whatever else …

Cars: is there anything they can’t do? I mean, obviously, they can get you places faster than anyone could have imagined just a couple of centuries ago. But they can also fulfil a few other magical functions. For example, they can serve as a supplementary handbag, expanding you carrying capacity by approximately 500% compared to …

Do you know what area of teen movies needs to be explored? Girls feeling like they’re unattractive. Someone needs to, like…make a movie about a girl who’s unpopular. Maybe she has a quirky friend of uncertain ethnicity, and they sit at a table by themselves during lunchtimes because they’re unpopular. Maybe there’s also a male …

How do you make an office space pop these days? Sometimes it seems like we’ve seen it all, and there’s really nothing more we can do short of having a live rhino on the loose or something. That’s not a bad idea, actually. It’d keep people on their toes. That’s the thing – in the …

As it turns out, being stuck inside because of my ankle was something of a blessing in disguise. With all the rain that’s been bucketing down on the roof, we’ve developed a bit of a problem with our pipes. We’re using the water from the caravan park, but we also have an external rain tank. …

You know, I’m thinking of going to the Golfing Expo. It seemed a bit strange to me at first, an all-female expo just for golf, but I’ve been looking into it. Women’s golf really is taking off, you know! And my grandfather was a champion golfer, so I feel like it’s in my blood. I …
