When you hear the term ‘medical devices’, what kind of imagery springs to mind? Do you think of, like, medieval torture chambers complete with spiked wheels and racks? Or do you get more of a sci-fi vibe, with tubes full of neon liquid and blinding overhead lights? Perhaps your mental image is more realist, with …

It’s possible that getting a ute is the best decision I’ve ever made. That may not say much for my other life decisions, but it is what it is. Never had I such freedom of transportation before. Found a cool 1960s table on the side of the road and want to take it home? Easy …

Nothing like a floor-to-ceiling glass partition around your workstation to make you feel important. Take it from me, as someone who’s just had one installed. I’ve been campaigning for this for almost a year now, and my efforts have come to fruition at last. Maybe I’ll finally command the respect my position deserves. In all …

She doesn’t know that she’s the worst, and no one else thinks she’s the worst either, even though she totally is. Ugh, Penelope the heiress. Her family owns a penthouse suite. She has a private …

I really should clean out the laundry cupboard more often. It just sits there, all innocent, and you don’t notice that there’s dust piling up an inch thick and the moths have gotten at that old tablecloth that you sort of wanted to use for the garden party. Also, I found a k’li’ta’kir burrowing an …

First promo for the latest season of The Great Australian Trade-Off finally dropped, and it looks like they’re shaking up the formula. The first episode will be in Sydney, and I think I saw the Bill Khalifa in the background of one of the shots so I guess they’re going to Dubai. I would assume …

Ever since I tried to glue my cat to the ceiling when I was six, I knew I was meant to be an artist. I was attempting to fuse the static nature of glue with the fluid, ever-changing nature of the common household cat, and I would’ve gotten away with it too, if it weren’t …
