We DON’T live in a technological age. Too many stupid minions don’t really want it. But there are people out there who want to help your spawnlings learn to code. Find them. Now.
Great opportunity for a lesson in density. Not only will the spawnlings understand a basic scientific concept, but it will help them understanding other minions in the world – like politicians.
Life skills. It’s all about the life skills. And with spawnlings, it’s all about how you SELL those life skills. Today, let’s focus on cleaning. *that choking, warbling sound you may hear in the background is EG Dad as he cracks up laughing, then stumbles across the EG Lair, stepping […]
Damn her. Multi-levels of Hell, damn her. Sinister’s teacher has usurped me as the cool role-model in his life. And she did it in such a sneaky, underhanded way that I don’t know whether to smack her down with the wrath of EG Mum… Or congratulate her. How, I hear […]

Evil Genius Inc is currently on mid-year school holidays. And it has not exactly been the best school holidays. We’ve had toxic paint fumes right outside our front door (always a joy during pregnancy), 10 days straight of rain, and then the spawnlings were hit with Slap Cheek (5th’s disease […]
Spend a little time watching spawnlings at work play and you will start to see that science comes naturally to them. Seriously – science is an art form. It is purely about finding out how and why things happen. (Oxford Dictionary) Definition of science (noun) The intellectual and practical activity encompassing […]
Last week, I was asked to be an escort on Sinister’s school excursion to a Marine Education Centre. After laughing long and hard about the idea of ME being a ‘responsible, supervising parent’ – I accepted. I can’t guarantee that I’ll ever be invited again. Considering how it ended, that […]
