Finally have a new mouse

It’s a lovely little wireless Logitech Anywhere MX and quite frankly craps on my old one from a substantial height. Advantages to using this one over the old one: It’s not plugged full of my dead skin (yet). No wire to trail and snag on absolutely everything. The mousewheel doesn’t scroll up or down of …

I used to go past this place every day

And now it’s a heap of crumbled wreckage. Doesn’t life go on.

Menu bar updated again

Because I’m a fickle git. Note that the “Contact” link has a new drop-down menu – but it’s still a link to the Contact page. A bit misleading – will probably update it again so that the actual pages only appear in the drop-down menus.

YouTube update 04/01/12

Hi, 2012! Here’s a new track for the new year – suitably different and epic (in my humblest opinion, of course), a bit like the first one I uploaded last year (Economy of Truth). That one was a tad late for the new year, though – it wasn’t until February that I uploaded anything to …

It feels good to be right for once (though it was mostly a fluke)

Well, I’d like to think it was my open letter to old featherbrain that finally knocked some sense into him, because he wasn’t in the tree this morning. It wasn’t my letter that removed him from his usual perch, of course – it was probably the fact that even he has the sense to steer …

Dear annoying bird

I have a simple question for you: How the fuck have you not been shot yet? Why in the everloving mother of hell is it a necessity for you, at half-past-four in the goddamn morning, for you to make that unbridled racket? I am not a heavy sleeper. Lots of things wake me up from …

Happy Bloody New Year!

Here’s to a year that will hopefully suck a little less than the year before it. And also won’t kill us all in a violent global cataclysm just before Christmas. Screw you, Mayans, with your weird-ass calendar of the future. We stick with normal, non-doomsday-predicting calendars of just 12 months, thank you very much. Good …

Initiate moaning mode

This neighbourhood, like many of the ones we journeyed through on our quest to find a house, is the quietest place you could possibly envisage. On our expeditions to the various estates, roads, lanes, crescents, and avenues across the top portion of Western Australia, we were lucky to see a single soul outdoors. No families …

Merry Christmas, all a’ y’all!

This Christmas has been a strange one for me, mainly because it feels like we’vee not actually been celebrating it at the right time this year. For example, everyone knows how much the traditionals Christmas hymns and carols refer to the dark nights and snowy winter weather. Over here, it’s been about 35ÂșC. Yet this …

The chaos continues; also I rant about hygiene

Today was another one of those days where the amount of energy spent seems horrendously out of proportion with the results you get at the end of it. Mum said, I think quite rightly, that she’d been on her feet all day – that’s possibly true for the rest of us. All we needed to …
