Life in the Slow Lane

Hello World! I thought it was about time I checked in here, in case you were you worried about me. I didn’t want those of you who don’t see me shambling round South Brisbane thinking I might be languishing at the bottom of a pool, my frantic splashing mistaken by the lifeguard for epic friendliness.

Adventures on Two Wheels

When I embarked on my crazy well thought through plan to train for a triathlon, I thought I knew all the important things that you need to know about bikes. Like: they have 2 wheels there are different types, like road bikes and mountain bikes and commuter bikes and maybe some others, but who really […]

The Oscarmort Song

Hello Huminions. Lord Oscarmort here. Have you missed me? I expect you have. I can’t imagine your life has been up to much without my furry excellence in it. The thing is, the huminion that I thought was well trained, turned out to be untrained and untamed and basically a foul huminion. She ripped me from […]

True Crime

True Crime

Hey. How’s your week going? Mine has been a little odd. Surprise…. You’d think, really, that my interactions with random acts of weirdness would have topped out on Sunday, when I witnessed the drunken port-a-loo door banger at City2South. But no! I’ve got closer to true crime than that and have had firsthand experience of […]

City2South or #justcallmedavid

A funny thing happened on Sunday. Not necessarily funny haha, so if you’re looking for laughs, why are you even on my blog? No, I’m talking the other funny – odd, strange, in keeping with my personality… Sunday was deemed a rest day in the vague scheme in my head that is my “training plan”. And […]

The law of unintended consequences

I think I may have created an imbalance in the order of the universe: I’m really sorry, and I’d like to apologise. The thing is, I can’t find Oscar and I fear that he’s run off in the belief that he’s a superhero. And it’s all my fault. The consequence of involving myself in his […]

Animal Farm parkrun and other stories

Animal Farm parkrun and other stories

This morning I got embroiled in Pigeongate. Who would have thought a pleasant sail on the CityCat and a gentle parkrun (aka walk) at New Farm would end up involving emergency calls to the RSPCA about a rabid pigeon. Well, maybe not rabid. But it was frothing at the mouth. I suppose I should have realised […]

Be more Oscar: have self belief

Be more Oscar: have self belief

Oscar, for the uninitiated, is a cat. I’d say “my” cat, but that would be wrong on 2 counts. Technically, he is Twin2’s cat. And more importantly, Oscar is of the opinion that he owns us. He is a cat that likes to be outside, basking in the sun. He has a title: Lord Oscarmort and he […]

How to lose friends

Death by Turkey, Mystery Swimmer and a Gone Girl: it’s a wrap It’s been an eventful week. I’m not sure why I attract trouble, but I’m like a magnet. You’re lucky I don’t have time to write it all down, because you’d be bombarded with a constant stream of disaster posts from me… (Actually, that’s […]

The Devil Wears Cleats

Turns out I’m not a total natural in cleats. Which is disappointing, as I thought I would be. Why, I don’t know. Based on my only similar experience, which is ski boots attached to skis, where I generally use falling over as my preferred method of disengaging one from the other, my surprise at being rubbish at […]
