Virtual Stress Management

You know…I don’t think there’s any stress management within Over-Botch itself. I’m talking about the regular game here, and not the league. They’re pretty strict about people setting themselves up with anything to do with mental health, since you’re dealing with real people in that profession and not, like…a car. The only job that’s been …

Too Many THINGS!

The truly aggravating thing about learning to be a human is the amount of subtle intricacies. Just a load of tiny little things, too many to count, things you can only learn if you happen to have grown up here. Then you mix in different cultures and suddenly it just becomes totally impossible. Why do …

More Work, Really?

The latest in the Chronicles of Sandrine: after-work seminars. She came in today all flouncy and bouncy, stating that she’d “solved the problem of why morale is so low around here!” Then we were all called together for a special, emergency meeting where she took the entirety of lunch just to tell us that she …

The Australian Empire?

Icy cool air con. Sounds good right? Let me tell you, air con is the reason for the decline of…hang on, just let me check which ancient civilisation was probably the hottest…okay, the Persian Empire. Definitely, because they’re right there on the equator with them being in the ancient Middle East and all. Obviously the …

Assemble That Chamber

Things are definitely heating up as we reach the grand finale of The Great Australian Trade-Off, Season 2… which I guess is why they decided to grind things to a halt with a one-off Christmas special. All the big shows get Christmas specials, so I guess it’s a sign of health. That’s something to breathe …

Just Be Inspiring…

I’m not really a public speaker in any sense of the word, but fortunately, in this world of technology, I do not have to be. In the last meeting of the Aluminium Appreciation Society, I was made Aluminium Appreciator of the Month, and my reward was a shiny trophy (made from aluminium) and also the …

The Parent Overlord

Today I watched the sunrise show, which I haven’t done for an incredibly long time, and I was quickly reminded why. This unbearable woman came on and started talking about her new book, The Gentle Parent. Sounds like she just doesn’t hit her kids, but sadly, that wasn’t all. She’s got all these stupid little …

Automobile Marvels

Anyway, we’ve managed to make excellent progress in integrating cars into our line of work, even if some of the younger folks have said that they’d like to pursue other avenues. We’ll still need their advice, though; apparently you have to take a car to a mechanic in Ringwood for a roadworthy certificate, and most …

So Much TV

I don’t WANT to be one of those people who just comes home and watches TV, but the thing is, the quality of television is WAY up. I always watch ‘Week of Our Lives’ during dinner, and then it’s ‘Echolocation!’ (essential viewing), and then you can’t miss the latest episode of ‘The Great Australian Trade-Off’ …

Cars Are Alright

Wait…that may have been another episode. Seriously though, what happened to all those shows in the 90s that were all about saving the environment, or just…teaching you things? I went to get my annual car check up with a mechanic open in Bentleigh the other day, and I suddenly had a strong flashback to my …
