Raisins or Ratshit*?

Warning: This Halloween post contains some freaky shit. And swears. Due to the freaky shit. Am I a witch? Doubtful. I’m shitscared of spiders. Although… I am a cat person. I can only think of one weird thing that I do in the way of witchy superpowers and it’s really stupid and you won’t think it’s a superpower at all; sometimes…

Cross I’m Not Fit.

Disclaimers: Not sponsored, contains some naughty language, and might get slightly ranty. OMG am I writing a health/fitness/wellness post? Someone slap me in the face with a packet of Tim Tams. Don’t worry, it’s not that kind of post. I’m not trying to offer any wellness wisdom. I actually get sort of pissed off reading about other people’s health habits,…

Sneaky Little Getaway. (Flat Rock, NSW)

Sometimes they were the crusher, other times the crushee, but they all had fond (eventually – after varying periods of acute…

It’s called ProBlogger and I am rather thrilled about it – I get to meet some bloggy heroes, gush with like-minded grownups about the joys of blogging, learn stuff that will help me to do it better (blogging), and…

Proshumptuous Prosheedings.

On this very special Fool’s Day there’s a particular bunch of creative and inspiring idiots I want to tell you about. An oft-maligned and misunderstood subspecies of student named ‘Proshketeers’, they are said to inhabit the darkest corners of the University of Western Australia. Most of the time they look just like your average student, but it…
