The adventures of the millionaire mower

Usually myself and mowers don't go well - I either spend too much on a mower that doesn't do much at all or spend too much time trying to coax life back into free mowers who would much rather be left for dead.

Until this week when I managed to snap up a decent 4 stroke for a bargain price of $50. From a couple who I suspect are actually multi millionaires..

Almigo's house of meat and stuff.

Last night I had a truly amazing meal on the Gold Coast Waterfront at a delicious seafood eatery. The beer was crisp, the garlic prawns to the die for, the steak looked a little different to what I was used to but was still tasty and dessert was decidedly decadent.

Excuse me, what is this?

My only niggle? Given that I don't spend much time doing super fine dining (last night's effort was because I won a voucher, this blog really hasn't generated enough revenue to purchase some small fries so far) I struggled to understand roughly some of what was going on...

Oh spaghetti bolognese, you beautiful bastard

Now you'd think that by now, 19 years since it became the first thing I ever learnt to cook (I'm not counting sausages here because it required very little effort) that I'd be sick of Spaghetti Bolognese - but you'd be wrong.

Ghosts in the VOIP machine

Big shout out today to Corey the NBN technician who not only called me to tell me that he was going to be there earlier than expected, he also turned out to the be the world's happiest installation technician. Luckily he didn't hang around long enough to watch me completely confuse myself on what to plug where into this shiny new box on the garage wall...

Migo's comic collection episode 2: Meet Dirge the Dirtbag

In our latest offering from the big plastic chest that holds all of my comics both awesome and average comes the amazing tale of Dirge the Terrible, otherwise known as Image Comic's DV8 #20

The bottom title should read: And you will want to punch him too!
How will our favorite team of mutants, mutants and deviants survive such a terribly named bad guy?

Migo's comic collection episode 1: Supreme meets the Condiment Cannon

Welcome to my new comic rundown where we grab something random out of what’s been gathering dust in my comic collection and shine a light on what was both awesome and confusing in each issue.
Today we flip through Image’s Supreme #3 from June 1993 and can the team from Bloodstrike manage to topple the unstoppable Nazi fighting juggernaut with the fondness for burning heads from the inside?

More than likely not... but let’s take a look shall we?
