It’s officially the weekend here in Australia, and here at HQ, Casadella, Disconcur and I are getting ready for a big weekend of Diablo III shenanigans. The pre-expansion patch has been released and so far the changes look brilliant. Should have released it like this the first time, Blizzard!
Aside from that, I’m still enjoying World of Warcraft. I started Death Knight number six earlier today, and noticed an alarming trend: (more…)

I’m just shy of 18 weeks pregnant and it seems that my stomach has exploded in size. Sadly, it’s not a cute baby bump; it’s a horrid, deformed thing with an umbilical hernia and a layer of flub that makes me look more like I’ve stuffed myself so full of pies and burgers that I am bursting at the seams rather than spawning another human being. I do not feel sexy at all, and shopping for maternity clothes locally just makes me feel even worse about myself. I don’t really want to wear stripes or a potato sack!
Although it was a lot more painful than I would have imagined, the internet has come to the rescue with these five maternity dresses that aren’t completely awful. (more…)
Over the years friends have joked that when it comes to technology, I have the touch of death. I thought maybe I had outgrown it, but nope, just last week my laptop started showing signs of losing the battle against my aura of destruction and, in addition to turning into a furnace the second I load up a game, the SSD died. That means I’m currently operating on a computer that has nothing but Chrome, GIMP, Spotify, Battle.net and Steam installed. Cutting edge games are SO not going to happen on this zombie. (more…)
If you’re following me on Facebook or reading Casadella’s blog (Both are things that you should be doing, by the way) you will no doubt have noticed that I am well and truly back on the World of Warcraft band wagon. Since it’s my birthday tomorrow and I can’t celebrate aging discracefully by drinking wine, I thought I’d instead kick off the weekend with some machinima fun times. (more…)
Blogging is a passion of mine that I’ve recently been lucky enough to attempt to make a living out of. I always get a rush of excitement whenever a friend asks me for advice; Disconcur and Casadella probably regret ever showing me their blogs because I just Do. Not. Shut. Up. once I’ve caught even a whiff of interest! So, in order to spare them from my incessant ramblings, I’ve decided to share with you four tips for newbie bloggers who are looking to build an awesome community of like-minded readers. (more…)
Since I have talked about future-proofing finances in the past, I thought I’d share this super depressing infographic that landed in my inbox this morning. It’s about a phenomenon that Suncorp are calling the “Grudge Workforce” — AKA people who didn’t take their superannuation seriously and now have to work into their seventies because it’s either that or starve.
Considering most of the family on my mothers side never even made it to 70, the idea of us having to work up until that age because we didn’t think about boring stuff like super horrifies me. I fully intend to spend my retirement on a beach drinking infinite champagne (Or playing Titan. Think it will be released by then?) and I can’t do that I’m dead, can I?
Check out the totally depressing infographic on the “Grudge Workforce” (and how to avoid it!) after the jump: (more…)
