Stop it with the makeoverings!




Today's comic is inspired by something that happened while I was out Christmas shopping with David the Blog-Jacker.  We were in the St. George's Shopping Centre headed towards The Pier which was having one of those crazy 50% off sales (probably connected to the Woolworths situation) and had to walk past one of those small business stalls to get there.

Unfortunately, this stall had something to do with luxury mineral facial treatments or something like that, and the lady at the stall aimed hopefully at me while I tried to hide behind Dave, "Excuse me, can I ask you a question?"

And Dave was like, "No..." in that classically grumpy way I find hilarious, and I was like, "Um... No?  Not really?" then ran red-faced into Pier.  When we got in there I was like, "I don't want to buy your face products!  DON'T MAKE ME BEAUTIFUL!"  And Dave found that to be hilarious too.

Ever wonder where I get my ideas?  Random stuff like this, readers...

Lovey Duvet



The loveliness of my 13.5 tog, 16 year old (or more), duvet is one of the many reasons I stay in bed several more hours per day than I probably should.  Oh wells...  This post is in honour of two great bed accessories: the duvet and duvet cover.  We salute you!

Rant 1: CarylCake Confuses a Feminist



This is part in a series of rant-noodles I've decided to make. Today I had a conversation that simmered my blood somewhat, and reminded me of many other occasions where women had said similar things to me. I could go into details, but the bottom line is, people don't seem to like that I'm not a driven career-woman type; I'm a housewife.

Call me backward, tell me I'm subscribing to the oppression of women that Pankhurst and Greer and Thatcher worked so hard to fight against, but stuff you, I'm gonna become the best darn housewife the 21st century has ever seen, and have a great time doing it.
When I get a job (and hopefully before the end of January) it will be for the money and the opportunity to help others, not to try and claw my way to the top and do plenty of man-bashing on the way. Human beings are human beings, regardless of sex, race, religion etc.

However, that doesn't mean human beings aren't all different with different traits. Of course I want to be treated differently from a man! Men get a raw deal these days, they just kinda mope around without purpose while getting an earful from women that they're not 'man' enough. What is 'man' now? We've spent the past three decades trying to reinstate the purpose of woman, got it completely wrong, then messed up men in the process.

So, take that, feminism. You've done about as much harm as you have good, to both men and women, and I'm not standing for it. All I aim to do in this life is treat humans as humans, and ignore anyone that tells me I should be aiming to do anything different.
Ahem...

Thank you.
