Being Human (U.S.): Season 2 (2012)

*CONTAINS SPOILERS* What I liked: Josh’s social anxiety is hilarious. Just think of how he guzzled the wine when Sally’s mother was there for that awkward dinner, or how he edges out and avoids uncomfortable situations. I love it. Demonic, dark side Sally is actually really entertaining, hectic plot to watch. The introduction of the Reaper and then all the things that subsequently happen? So good. Seeing Aidan delve deeper into the world of the vampires, and it is messy, ugly, and digs up another side of him altogether, which is quite cool to see. More of Aidan’s past was...

Tasman Peninsula: Waterfall Bluff

While I wait for the next adventure opportunity, I have one more belated (and pre-COVID) post to write. This one’s from a late Summer stroll down to Waterfall Bluff on the Tasman Peninsula. With Lachie in childcare and both of us having a day off, we decided to do a not too strenuous walk as when you have a baby to look after, the last thing you want is to be extra tired. We arrived at Devil’s Kitchen, a popular spot with the day tripping crowd who sure enough were out in force at this spot right next to the...

“It’s Hell Up There”

Hell might be colder than we think… In the shadow of Bran Castle, night time home of the legendary Count Dracula, on the outskirts of the Bucegi Natural park, we gather in the castle grounds, a few hundred eager runners waiting to a techno remixed beat of the theme music from Game of Thrones. The darkness is ours and it’s almost time to run the Transylvania 100k. A race that has been on my wish list since I started ultra running. Bran Castle We set off out of the castle gates and along the main road before turning onto an...

Picture this – Trouble and Strife

If you want to get ahead, get a head-shot–on a professional profile or a company website, your photo is not an optional extra. But why should women be obliged to put their faces on public display? It’s a recipe for sexism, says Debbie Cameron Remember Charlotte Proudman? She’s the barrister who made headlines this year after a male lawyer commented on the ‘stunning’ photo that adorned her profile on the professional networking site LinkedIn. Her response was to shame him on social media, telling him that she didn’t appreciate being objectified in this way. The emphasis put on looks,...

Metaphysical Elements in Writing – Gemstones

Hello, SE’ers! It’s Jan again with the first part of the new series that’s all about including metaphysical elements in fiction writing. Today, I’m going to explore the use of gemstones in stories. If you follow my personal blog, you know I did a fairly extensive series of posts on various gemstones I own, along with their metaphysical properties. And while all gemstones carry some monetary value, the esoteric value far outweighs the physical value, in my humble opinion. It’s easy to include stones with magic powers or healing properties in fantasy or even sci-fi. J.R.R. Tolkien introduced magical gemstones...

Between the Blog and the Birdsite

This week I: Your Twitter experience is a combination of content consumption and content creation. People see few downsides to just posting as long as you don’t get cancelled or harass anyone, while the stuff you consume is what everyone is cautioned about. Everyone talks about timelines filled with rage and misinformation and bluechecks. But the posting isn’t separate from the doomscrolling, and it’s often the worse part of the experience. Today I opened Twitter for 15 minutes, caught up on the French election and the war in Ukraine with insightful takes curated by my excellent ingroup follow list, laughed...
