A Perplexing Puzzle of Perspective:

Howdy Toasters, Picture forcing a giant baguette into your toaster for a moment. Eventually, hopefully, you conclude, with or without help, that the task just isn’t up to the goal and if you want your peanut butter on soy & quinoa sourdough another approach, another perspective, is required. My best game has not been served at work lately. (stay with me, I promise this isn’t a work whinge…). I’ve felt the cool change of detachment, watched this skulk it’s way into the year and trudged my way through what really are interesting and varied activities like a tormented Klingon Targ. … Continue reading A Perplexing Puzzle of Perspective:

642:6 Judgey Gemma

Howdy Toasters, 642 challenge time… what a wonderful way to procrastinate about studying. I used to have a gorgeous, white, long haired, deaf cat, Gemma, who I’m sure spent her life judging me and my behaviours ( and I’m just sure hated me for a while after I moved in with a friend and his pet rabbit) so this one just jumped off the page at me. 642 Topic: You are a loser who lives alone with a cat and have done for quite some time. One day your cat can’t take it any more and starts talking. What does … Continue reading 642:6 Judgey Gemma

Get your Arty on : 18th Bienale of Sydney

Howdy Toasters! Melbourne has always had the creative and cultural lead over Sydney (I’m sure that will create some uproarious paint splashing that Jackson Pollock would probably put to canvas and exhibit… but it’s just true) but when it’s festival time Sydney can bring it like a cheerleader to finals. The 18th Bienale of Sydney is currently in full swing and the Silver Ferret & I ferried ourselves over to Cockatoo Island to get our arty on. There are some beautiful pieces like Tiffany Singh’s Knock on the Sky, Listen to the Wind. An open air room filled with wind … Continue reading Get your Arty on : 18th Bienale of Sydney

Serenading in your sleep

Howdy Toasters! So every now and then a first happens.. when we were young they happened all the time, first step, first word, first day at school, first day on the job, first kiss, first hot kiss, first shag, first time trying to sneak out unseen past the housemates of the stranger you met the night before, not quite sure where you are really wishing you had your sunnies as much as a panadol…not that i’ve ever found myself in that situation…. anyway, i digress, where was i? Oh yes, firsts… as we get older they tend to happen less … Continue reading Serenading in your sleep

The Star Trek Geek

Howdy Toasters! I often get teased about my love of Star Trek and all things sci-fi…. of course number #1 is the Trek universe. I first stumbled on to the decks of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D when i was a teenage toaster in year 10. Captain Jean-Luc Picard and his crew were on their ongoing mission to boldly go where no one had gone before..it was a slightly longer mission than Captain Kirk and his crew’s 5 year mission…. it also ran longer. There are many things i admire about the Trek universe and it’s creator Gene Roddenberry. Firstly, in … Continue reading The Star Trek Geek
