You might be asking yourself whether I just used my mother as *link-bait and yes, yes I did. My mum is not involved in the creation of any sexually explicit material but is simply the benefactor of some interesting erotica that today we shall call art. I love my mum. She’s an exceptional example of [...]
The last time my husband and I arranged a little Melbourne rendezvous, there was a slight change of plans after a bout of gastro turned my children into extras from The Exorcist while I flapped about in denial yelling “It’s okay, I’m sure it’s just a sore tummy!” It was in similarly sweltering conditions last [...]
It doesn’t quite require a marching band but hey, one can dream right? You’ve possibly noticed I’ve had a wee facelift (yes I’m speaking in an Irish accent now, that’s a Saint Pat’s parade I’m marching in) but I also have a small announcement to make that doesn’t involve custom style sheets, SEO, HTML and [...]
This week Four Corners focused on America’s failure to care for its citizens in the aftermath of an economic crisis. Watching a young mother abandon a job interview so she could attend to two small children before returning to the car they now called a home was deeply upsetting. A former sales manager with six [...]
I am not an academic feminist – I know, it’s hard to believe. I’m not down with all the terminology but thanks to social media and motherhood, I’m on a one way path to feminism betterment and quite frankly, I feel like I’m screwing up weekly. In my youth, feminism was all about “choice”. I [...]
They say this feeling comes in cycles. A jaundiced view of blogging when it was once as inspiring as it was unfamiliar. I don’t expect this feeling to hang around for long, it never does. But this one’s really taken the shine off. Blogging is supposedly home to the narcissistic personality. It can sometimes be [...]
I remember being pregnant, munching down on yet another packet of red licorice, when I stumbled across research that linked eating licorice during pregnancy with behavioural problems in children. That night, while snacking on my in-law’s home made salami (not a euphemism) I realised something. I am not a frikking incubator. I am not a [...]
Do you wanna be in my gang, my gang, my gang? The thing is, it’s a party of one so it’s not really a gang. The Oxford Dictionary defines a gang as both an ‘organised group of criminals’ and ‘a group of young people involved in petty crime or violence’. Stumble across the wrong internet [...]
I was lucky enough to catch Dave Grohl’s documentary on analog music studio, Sound City last night. Birthplace to recordings After the Gold Rush, Rumors and Nevermind – it’s a tribute to an iconic recording studio and a reflection on the changing face of the music industry. Grohl was supposedly inspired to make the film [...]
I’m not going to lie to you, I have a bit of a Twitter habit. My husband possibly rues the day the blue bird swooped our nest back in 2009. My sister once told me I was addicted. I would’ve denied this had we not been sitting in a cinema. Contrary to popular opinion, Twitter [...]
