Marriage of convenience

Heckler I RECENTLY received an invitation to a family wedding that included a piece of stationery tied with a decorative ribbon.

The platypus that got away

Heckler I WANDER into my local bank to open a new account. A simple account for shifting money will do. My teller is delighted to be able to help me help her clock up another account for her tally.

Gillard guilty of vowel play

Heckler I used to envy that game on television where the chocolate wheel was spun by an eager contestant. The hope was the click-clacking sound would stop at some fantastic prize or large sum of money and...

Getting the wrong end of the stick

Heckler Until recently I thought there were a limited number of types in this world - you know, leg men, boob men, bum women, and so forth. But I've started noticing a new type: stick men ... and women.

Four easy steps to better email

Heckler EMAIL came upon us quickly. One minute we were sprinting to the letter box to catch the last post and suddenly it was fingers flashing across the keyboard and the click of a mouse.

Wheel deal is a real steal

Heckler I have extraordinarily bad carma. That wasn't a typo, I meant carma. You see, six months ago I foolishly bought a second-hand 4WD that turned out to be a big fat lemon.

Heckler

Big may be beautiful, but tiny is not so terrific

Heckler BIG is beautiful, or so we are told amid other conflicting messages about women's bodies.

Stirred by the possum

Heckler HAVE you ever looked down upon a possum, those cute eyes staring back at you, and felt like kicking the little sods from here to Kununurra? I have.

Heckler

Oh Jacqu, who are you?

Heckler I HAVE a new computer. Or, rather, had a new computer. Brand spanking. That didn't stop it from self-destructing very early in our relationship. So off to the land of warranty-covered repairs it went.

A burqa for all seasons

Heckler The debate about the moral rights and wrongs of wearing the burqa continues across Western nations who fear the confronting nature of the burqa wearer.

Heckler

Wake up and sniff the roses fragrance

Heckler IN LIFE there are certain topics that are beyond criticism: your religion, your wife's dress-sense, Mosman and the like. Another is Column 8.

And they think I'm rude ...

Heckler Here's the proposition. The most selfish people in your neighbourhood are those who come and look, buy a house, knock it down and build their dream house in what was your dream neighbourhood.

Ugly men can sing

Heckler LIKE most '80s children, before the gender-blurring world of grunge, mosh pits and Rage captured our teenage imagination, I was raised on a steady diet of Countdown and Video Hits.

Heckler

Principled in a pinch

Heckler I GOT into trouble on the weekend. The family headed for one of the many shopping centres around Sydney that have about half the parking spaces needed for smooth operation.

Plug, play, and then lose a day

Heckler I have just spent an entire day (Saturday, of course) stuffing up my computer, panicking, doing serious damage to my blood pressure, panicking, having a nervous breakdown, and finally weaseling...

Mosman is way out in front

Heckler Yes, we who live in Mosman know the rest of you in Sydney don't like us. We know you think we are silver-tailed, toffee-nosed, chardonnay-sipping folk who iron creases into our jeans and T-shirts.

Boomer upsets the app-le cart

Heckler SO YET another Gen Y'er has a cheap shot at the fuddy-duddy baby boomers (''Generation Y bother'' - Heckler, July 7) who apparently have failed to grasp the significance of social media networks, the...

The nanna stripped bare

Heckler A MODERN woman of 63 years, I consider myself to be broad minded. I don't flinch at hearing occasional ''colourful'' language, as long as it is not used in a threatening or abusive manner and not...

Heckler

Generation Y bother

Heckler WHAT is it with today's baby boomers and Generation X and their scepticism of the phenomenon that is the internet - as though it is some kind of extraterrestrial creature that has arrived uninvited...

Smokers called to stand united

Heckler WE SMOKERS are a tolerant lot. We have watched the taxes on our pleasure grow over the years and rarely complained.
