There’s a girl who works in the same building as me who looks like the archetypal meganekko. I saw her in the lift again yesterday, but I couldn’t summon the courage to ask her which anime she escaped from.

I was walking home from work the other night, down New South Head Road, through Edgecliff and Rushcutters Bay. I saw this car in the right-hand lane going slow with the right indicators on. They weren’t near anywhere that they could actually turn right so I’m thinking, “Where the hell do you thing you’re going?” […]

I was in Wangaratta over the weekend for a friend’s wedding. It’s not a place I’d usually go. Despite being in the middle of nowhere, there’s a lot of traffic, and parking is metered almost everywhere. It’s white trash central, too — Shepparton has a Turkish community and Kyabram has the Iraqis, but everyone in […]

The back wall of Coles supermarket at Edgecliff is lined with open-front refrigerators. Above each of them is an illuminated sign that says “Chilled Foods” in large, high-contrast text that can be read from metres away. Well thanks, Captain Obvious! I never would have guessed that food in a refrigerator would end up cold! How […]

When I first moved in here, I received notice of a development application for a Japanese restaurant just across the road. There are plenty of cafés in Elizabeth Bay but we could use more restaurants, and I was excited — I might actually get to go to a restaurant’s opening night! The application was approved, […]

Blacklisted Cabs

I don’t book taxis very often — most of my taxi rides are between Tullamarine Airport and Flemington in Melbourne, and you never have to wait long to flag down a taxi at either location. But the other week I happened to be at Werribee station on a Sunday morning, and I’d missed the bus […]

Where’s my future?

Saturday, 13 February, 2010

It’s the 21st century: I should have a flying car, and a videophone, and a robot housekeeper. Well, I do have a videophone – a wireless one, in fact – but 64kbps H.263 is quite underwhelming if you grew up with images from 2001: A Space Odyssey and Back to the Future. But what’s really […]

I swear I must look like a ghost or something – people seem to think they can walk right through me! This one time, I was walking up the Sussex St ramp to the bridge from the city to Pyrmont, carrying a big bag of shopping, keeping to the left, and this guy was running down […]
