Matt lists his hobbies
"I'm going to hide the piss in my camera bag!"
Oho, are you, little man? I thought, surreptitiously pressing "Pause" on my MP3 player so I could hear better. (Hey, don't judge me. Some mornings, when you're trapped on public transport with weirdos staring and body odours creeping into your nasal cavities, breakfast radio and Pimsleur's Learn Mandarin Chinese just.... more »
So, a few nights ago, in an interesting lead-up to the long weekend, I received a nuisance phone call.
It was suitably pathetic, and I hung up as soon as I realised what it was, but it got me thinking about how a) having an unlisted phone number would be both awesome AND fantastic, and in fact, b) everyone should have a silent/unlisted number by default, and c) people should only have.... more »
Happy Easter! I hope everyone had a great long weekend.

Last week I received a warning that the Old Boys Union (OBU) of my former high school was organising our 15 year reunion.
You know, when I was at school, I never thought I'd even live to be this age (or "that old", as I naïvely called it at the time). As they say, youth is wasted on the young.
I think our small group even agreed to meet up and throw ourselves off a cliff.... more »
This truly has to be one of the greatest scientific advances of our time. Greater than whatsisname's discovery of penicillin, even.*
