Helping dad with planning the carpet cleaning

When my parents asked me to find the best carpet cleaning company in Melbourne, I had honestly no idea where to begin. I had a look through the local directories, coming across numerous residential carpet cleaners in Melbourne, I just didn’t know which one to…

Family saved from ice overload

I was rushing around trying to tidy the house and keep my wife comfortable. I’d taken the day off work so I could stay home with her as she wasn’t coping too well. Hopefully once the repair technician from the central heating repair company worked…

My Potential Plumbing Nightmare

Opening night is upon us. I feel sure that I’ve made every alteration possible, the script is perfect, my actors and dancers have been given just the appropriate amount of tough love that instils discipline but also respect, no one is injured, no one is…

A Bit of Time Off, for Luck

It’s time for a sabbatical, I’ve decided. I wouldn’t usually take time off this close to a musical unveiling, but things are going surprisingly well, for a change! It’s been tough to reach this point, and the disasters have been many. However, I’m working under…

We Need More Aluminium, Now

I must admit, I’m more of a ‘boards’ person. The stage is my…stage, and not the film studio. On occasion, however, I have been known to make exceptions. A good friend of mine recently came to me with a proposition: a miniseries about a group…

The Windows Not Replaced

In my idle moments, of which there are relatively few, I wonder how I would’ve coped if I’d followed my parents’ plans for my life. My Father was a businessman, my Mother was a real estate agent, and together they’d get up every morning and…

My Newest Welding Self-Insert

I’ve spent so long conducting dance troupes that I’ve forgotten the joys of the dance myself. I suppose that’s what happens when you move into the upper echelons of society; you have to take on the leadership roles, deal with that paperwork, direct people instead…

Breaking and break dancing

Something a little unfortunate happened yesterday. I was practicing break dancing in my living room, which in hindsight is never a wise idea. In fact, it’s far more a recipe for disaster than just about anything else. But, in my defense, it was raining outside…
