It's the broken neck, not the panadol that prevents the pain. I'm not actually sure what value panadol is bringing to the situation.

I went for a walk around the park at lunch with a work friend. As we walked past a covered bbq/seating area, some crazy bearded homeless guy with a trolley starting yelling at me, starting with stuff like 'you can shut up, four-eyes', then progressed to calling me a fucking slut. Not sure what I did to draw his ire, as I only looked over at him when he started yelling at me (he didn't like that either and told me to stop looking at him). I wonder if he's the hobo who was sleeping in the garden in front of our building a few months ago.

I was about to recommend that in retaliation - you should have taken his shoes and then hid it in various parts of your office garden.

Then I remembered that he probably doesn't own any.

Sounds like he might have recognised you from the time he spent in your office gardens.

Has Bain paid any late night visits for dinner while you were pulling all nighters recently, that the hobo might have caught a glimpse of?

That sounds like a really shitty situation for you, that sort of thing will really ruin your day / week.

Sounds like a really shitty situation for him too since he's likely batshit crazy and in need of some serious help.

Shitty situations for everyone!

I just laughed it off actually. I've been randomly abused before in my previous job at a Flinders St Station, and it's not personal *shrug*. My friend asked me afterwards if I thought he should have said something, my answer was nope!


Just got this email from the boss of our account guy at one of our offshore typesetting companies:

Wonderful to e-meet you, Hekate.

Is e-meeting a thing? I wouldn't say 'it's wonderful to e-converse with you on this forum'

You should reply with "It was great to finally put a font to the name".

Why not? Are you saying it isn't e-wonderful? I'm e-offended.

That's actually brilliant and I really hope she does.

Today I called crime stoppers because there were legit drug deals going down in the street where I'm working this week. .


In Sunshine for anyone who knows Melbourne.. Which is fucking doooooodgy as fuck so it's no surprise.

I'd call the cops if I saw people in Sunshine not dealing drugs.

Word of the day
frustoconical (n): having the shape of a frustum of a cone. (frustum - a cone or pyramid whose tip has been truncated to a plane parallel to its base)

Appeared in an intellectual property law textbook I'm working on in a discussion of Coca-Cola Co v PepsiCo Inc (No 2) (2014) 109 IPR 429 - on the differences between the Coca Cola bottle and the PepsiCo 'Carolina bottle'.

Pretty interesting stuff, can definitely see it in the Carolina bottle.

We had some old bananas at home so Stacey whipped up some banana bread (old Nan's recipe) and It's delicious.

Though it's even more delicious - actually fucking amazing - toasted and slathered with butter.

Think I'll freeze some and have it as a treat every now and then.
