  • Aggression For the Sake of Beauty

    It’s true, I’m a little bit militant with my beauty tactics. That’s why I broke away from the industry in the end: too many people who were content to set up a beauty clinic and expect people to come to them. I know that’s how business works, but it never made me content. So many […]

  • Giving the rich a bad name?

    They say that rich people are stingy but I’m here to tell you that it’s a lie. We may be a lot of things but stingy is not one of them. We may be frugal, economical, efficient, money-wise, thrifty, austere, Spartan…. but stingy? Huh! We rich people aren’t tight, we’re clever and considerate whereas most […]

  • Swing that Tree Felling Axe

    Is it just me, or are job interviews getting harder? Used to be that you’d wear a tie, sit in a chair, answer some questions and that would be the decider over whether you had a long a prosperous future with this country. Yeah, seems kind of lacking now that I think about it, but […]

Of course, Melbourne has pretty much perfect weather at this time of year. I stepped off the plane into the sun and […]

  • Take My Free House, Someone

    I like to think that I’m financially secure. Doesn’t everyone? I know I’ve been blessed with a great amount of…blessings, and I’d like to give some back to the community. Thing is, no one seems to want any of it. No, really: I’ve been standing on street corners and asking folks if they’d like a […]

  • Red Riding Hood, Upgraded

    I haven’t even reached middle-age yet, and even I thought fairy tales growing up were just a little bit lame. A girl who can’t tell that a wolf is actually her grandmother? How stupid do you have to be to not figure that one out? Oh, and that princess who finds all the dwarves living […]

  • Home prices sour thanks to staging

    I went to a pantomime yesterday. Such fun! The people on stage were engaging, and they encouraged lots of audience participation so nobody felt left out. Well, except for lawyers, because they were the butt of most of the jokes. It was a pantomime about the first case of an animal being brought to trial […]
