“Art (like food) begins in imitation and ends in innovation…”

Hello everyone! It’s a lovely day, too lovely to be kept inside. Today we’re having a staff lunch at our uni’s pizza cafe, and I am EXCITED! We’re having POTATO PIZZA! POTATO! On PIZZA!!! That’s like the two best foods ever in one… Australia really is the lucky country!

So I’ve been starving myself all morning so I’ll enjoy it more… here are some links to snack on! Bon Appetit!

1) I come from (well, I grew up in anyway) a smallish country town. Now that I’ve escaped to the big city, it’s always great to hear about my hometown on the news (just to reassure me it hasn’t sunk into the ground overnight and nobody noticed). Now, usually it’s drug murders or public health crises… though we did have that big recycled water thing a couple of years ago. But nothing beats slightly silly small-town revenge stories like this one… yes, I lived here, folks. And this does not surprise me. Not one tiny bit…(though the lack of total ugliness in the dress does, slightly. And the fact the girl’s name wasn’t Sharnay or Dakota or Maddddddisssson or some other bogan/trailer-trash name does… )

2) Librarians are an odd bunch (I believe we’ve established that time and again in this blog!) They like to write about themselves as a profession. They’re often quite glib, or very very depressed about it. And they’re often quite isolated and alone about it, which is what make Sh…, an interactive blog novel about a bunch of fictitious library workers, so interesting. If you liked “The Librarians”, or even “The Office” (probably more the UK version, not that awful Yankee ripoff) you might very well enjoy a peek…

3) Finally, are we all on agreement – monkeys are fun, yes? And monkeys helping people = extra fun? And monkeys helping people while hiding in car boots? Let’s find out, shall we?



  1. Thank you very much for the plug. I’m glad you liked it.

  2. […] Last week I brought you a news story from my home town. One I thought couldn’t be topped for sheer stupidity. Lucky for me (or not-quite-so-lucky, […]
