Act now … or tomorrow … or next week

Are you a procrastinator? I am to a minor degree, but I think that’s just human nature: we’re not always keen to do things that are hard work or a bit boring. Apparently though, it’s something we should cure by taking a course. An online course, in fact. Get The Darned Thing Done – How To Beat Procrastination In 14 Days was given a somewhat glowing review by a reporter for the Mail Online last...

Zuckerberg would be an improvement

Zuckerberg would be an improvement

It seems there’s been some speculation that Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg is planning to have a crack at running for president, but the wealthy tech guru has poured cold water on the rumours. The rumours came about after he hired an ex-Whitehouse photographer to be his personal photographer, and also publicly renounced his atheism. Because it seems being an orange buffoon is acceptable when it comes to being leader of the free world, but...

For that ‘hard to shop for’ person?

For that ‘hard to shop for’ person?

So Christmas is getting ever closer, and we all have that one person on our list who is nearly impossible to shop for. Well have I got news for you! From the “things you didn’t know you needed but can find on the internet” comes a product called My New Pink Button, which has made a few sales on Amazon. I’m glad you asked (although you might wish you’d kept that question to yourself once I’ve explained).  My New Pink Button is a “temporary dye to restore the youthful pink color back to your labia”. Yes folks, it’s lipstick for your girly bits. It’s currently out of stock so sorry, if you were keen to try a new shade for summer you might have to wait a while. I think I might need a cup of tea and a lie down.

Taking multi-tasking to a new level

Taking multi-tasking to a new level

I know were all keen on multi-purpose gadgets, like smartphones with all their phone and texty cleverness blended in with cameras and MP3 players, but I reckon this might just be taking things a little too far: Id prefer a thermometer that is either/or, not a multi-tasking clever clogs that can get you at either end. And the giant part of the description is a tad disturbing, too. Makes my eyes water just thinking about...

Achieving inner peace

Achieving inner peace

I am passing this on to you because it definitely worked for me today, and we all could probably use more calm in our lives. I looked around my house to see things I’d started and hadn’t finished, so I have managed to finish off a bottle of Merlot, a bottle of Chardonnay, a bodle of Baileys, a butle of wum, tha mainder of Valiuminun scriptins, an a box a chocletz. Yu haf no...

Upated: Home invaders (and men are idiots)

Upated: Home invaders (and men are idiots)

The discovery of some unexpected visitors in our home this week was a bit of a shock. After hearing a sort of dripping sound in the bathroom for a while now, I was wondering if either there was something leaking inside the wall (a potential nightmare after the sneaky ceiling leak we had in the same room earlier last year that took a couple of weeks to track down), or that we possibly had...

And the winner is … Chorus

And the winner is … Chorus

The gushing news reports would have us believe that everyone in Dunedin is celebrating their little corner of the world winning the much-hyped Gigatown competition but let’s be honest: it’s Chorus that should be doing all the celebrating. This year-long marketing “competition” was a brilliant marketing ploy for the company: the lovely citizens of the various towns and cities wanting access ultra-fast broadband took part in quizzes and promotions that used the “gigatown” tag,...

Weather or not you believe it …

The whole global warming debate continues, and while it’s hard to see it as global warming when we froze our collective arses off here in New Zealand last summer (but had an almost tropical winter), there is no doubt that something dodgy is happening to our climate. So let’s call it climate change, which covers all the weather wonkiness and makes it easier to comprehend for those who stick their nose out the door...
