First Home Tips

My parents have been on my case for about a decade to get my life together. Heck, as soon as I graduated from university they were telling me to put a deposit on a house. At the time, I was too itinerant. Not only was I moving from place to place within Melbourne – I …

Bailey’s Room Design

Hello to all the loyal members of George who are reading this blog post. This is my second blog where I drink all sorts of carbonated water beverages. Things I’ve done here in the past include post my imagined lyrics to the instrumental song Garden of Flowers from Super Maria Sisters, Marshmallow Island, give regular …

Who’s The Sell-Out?

It’s an exciting time to be a lawyer. There have been times when I’ve wondered if perhaps I should have gone into game design instead of becoming a lawyer in the game technology industry, and if perhaps I’d sold out my life’s passion for merely peripheral involvement in it. This week, though, I’m actually relieved …

Falling Face First

Dammit, Preston. How many times do I have to tell that kid to pick up after himself? He’s left those little toy bricks all over the carpet. I know what the cliche is, and I haven’t stepped on them. Oh, no. It’s much worse than that. I tripped over a toy truck he left on …

Zach Jordan’s Plan

“Nine thousand dollars?” Bandit said, bolting upright. “What if I could give you more than that to release us?” The Glass Smashing Bandit and I, Space Wizard, were in a bit of a sticky situation. We had been captured by the Church of the Tinted Flock, led by the famous Zach Jordan. They planned to …

Crazy for Foot Care

Looking after one’s feet always seemed like such a straightforward business – clip your toenails semi-regularly, whack a bit of moisturiser on your heels from time to time, and avoid nail polish if you’re not going to remove it once it starts chipping. Nowadays, though, it’s a whole different story. Not only are toenails the …

Car Karma

Oh. My. Gosh. You won’t believe what just happened. Remember Tiff? The girl who won a brand new car on a gameshow when she was only sixteen? I think it’s time for another update on her. But to give a bit of a spoiler, let’s just say, I hope she’s found a Mornington shop that …

Snowman. No, Man

I remember being kind of disappointed the first time I tried to make a snowman. It was the only time, actually, because I didn’t want to suffer the angst of creating another such undignified monster. Basically, it’s not at all how it is in American kids’ movies, where the snow is blanketed so thickly that …

Spring Is Springing

Spring is in the air! I know that’s a cliche, but it’s true – it really is in the air. Some of my perennial shrubs are becoming distinctly fragrant, and flowers are starting to appear on my fruit trees, which is attracting the buzz of the local bees. It all adds up to a palpable …

Prank Driver

In my spare time, I sometimes work for Goober, a ridesharing company that operates all throughout Melbourne. My clients often have an interesting ride, because I like to prank them. Most people take it for the joke it is, but there are a few who leave me negative reviews. Today’s one didn’t go so well. …
