I Save Lives

I want this sticker on every door and window of every building. You can never be too careful.

The Caffeine Hit that keeps on Giving

The new goal in my life... drink at least ONE Trenta size coffee before I die.


Could I have just one Trenta Java Chip Frappuccino... No, hold the cream thanks. My 900mL capacity stomach couldn't handle that much awesome in one sitting.

This tastes like 65 million years of staleness

Never thought I'd see the words "Fresh and Delicious" tied in with "Fossil Fuels".

Other than that, I will be looking forward to finding out if this is a marketable franchise and if it is, why is it not down the road from my house? If not... then I am most disappointed - think of the children (and me!).

Foxes are cute, but evil little bastards

Power was out... technically still is.

Nearly 48hrs with no running water or electricity makes you feel very primitive. And when you finally have a generator to power up the essentials while you wait for the power company to fix it (*cough cough* 9pm two nights ago). Things like running the water pump so you can shower and flush the toilet (yay!), fridge (luckily nothing went bad), fan (damn summer heat) and a little TV (cos the lights don't work and the light emitted from the TV is enough to make sure you don't walk into chairs, coffee tables and couches in the darkness).

You realise, after so long without power, how much you've de-evolved to near-Neolithic origin. I've been too scared to turn my laptop on in case I ended up in the dark again. You feel real fear when all the lights go out and all you have are the moon and stars (if that, since its been overcast) and then you hear that faint high-pitched howl of a fox as it runs through the bush. Lets just say, my nights have been far from peaceful.
