Archerak’s Revival

I’ve just finished reviving into my new duplicate body after Jack Zebraman stabbed me in the back with a metal pole. It’s an exhausting process, even for an ultra-powerful archlich like me. I need to relax for a couple of days and recuperate. I probably won’t even leave Big Ben unless it’s to get my …

Stay Cool in Business

Connections are key in business, so they say. Thus, if our latest advanced suit technology didn’t really take off last year, it’s an acceptable loss because we forged all kinds of important business connections…of business. Maybe our strategy needs a rethink. We were so focused on making promises of great things that we didn’t think …

The ANTO Alliance

We made camp on the night I discovered Australia’s Next Top Office was over. Although Archerak’s magic was gone, Space Wizard was able to use his laser vision to start a campfire. We desperately needed it, since Sweden gets particularly cold around this time of year. I’m talking about the Sweden in Melbourne, of course. …

Toenail Fungus Shame

I have a foot condition that I’m really embarrassed about. I’ve had the condition for five years now, and due to my embarrassment, I’ve never gotten it seen to. I’ve worn socks every single day for five years, no matter where I am or what temperature it is. It could be 45 degrees and I …

Super Car

My car lives a double life. By day, he’s just a regular Hold-On station wagon, driving around Melbourne, helping people with their daily routines. We do Goober together, taking people wherever they need to go. It’s a simple job, but a fulfilling one. But by night, my car is something else. Like a car from …

A Manly Ride

I’m having trouble selling my ute, which is starting to get annoying. I knew that my poor parking would come back to haunt me, and this is how. It’s pretty badly knocked up, because no matter how I try to park, I manage to stuff it up. I’ve hit poles, other cars, rubbish bins. Pretty …

Now It’s Personal

Some people really love to make a fuss! You tell one tiny little white lie, and next thing you know they’re demanding your head on a stake. I’ll admit that it’s marginally unethical to tell the whole office you’ve got a medical condition that you don’t technically have, but sometimes the ends justify the means, …

Steamy Shoebox

I swear to dog, Karen is just looking for things to complain about. If it’s not that her job is too fulfilling or her fiance too supportive, it’s her house being too big. That was the hot topic at brunch this morning. I had to focus really hard on my poached salmon slider to keep …

Getting Along

What do we think about robots at the moment? Are they going to make our lives easier and more balanced by reducing our workload of repetitive tasks? Or are they going to introduce us to a new wave of stressors, unlike any we’ve seen before? More than likely, the reality will fall somewhere between the …

Beautiful Heating Prose

Meg so hot, Hot, hot Meg Meg so hot She fry an egg. Um, excuse me while I squee. See, it’s all thematically linked. Bradley made his fortune doing ducted gas heating repairs in Melbourne, and even now that he’s moved onto managing multiple businesses, you could still say that he’s remembered as a ducted …
