On Friday 15 March 2019, millions of students around the world participated in school strikes to speak out about climate change. If you believed the mainstream media news services and politicians, you would probably think the kids skipped school, yelled at the clouds, and then took off for a fast-food […]
It doesn’t matter what the Universe throws at us, I know at least one of our spawnlings loves me–the one who made me Lava Candy!!
We have had a few birthdays around the lair this week. Zaltu turned three, along with a few other mini-minions around the neighbourhood. And with birthdays come the parties, and with parties come balloons. At one party, Zaltu became enamoured with a big bright blue balloon. It had a shiny […]
It seems ‘world creating’ has become a thing in the EG Lair. It all started with Sinister building his own terrarium for a school project last term (which he scored 93%… Such a good little evil genius…) – 3 months later and it is still going strong, without any further […]
We all want the best for our kids. To be happy; To be smart; To be healthy; To be educated. The latest buzzword in parenting is “resilient”: we all want our kids to survive. Because in life, when you get knocked down, you need to get up again – swinging. […]

If you really want to create your own world to conquer and command, you need to do some prep work. For those tuning in for the first time (slackers): Sinister has chosen to build his own self-sustaining terrarium for a science project. He has already researched what he needs and […]
Sinister is starting off his school year by creating his own world to command and conquer. I like this teacher already. Sinister is in Year 5 OC (Opportunity Class – like a Gifted program in the public school system). In Science they are studying Space – Significant astronomers; Creation of […]
I know, I know. Forensic Fridays took a weeeeeee holiday of late. However, they are starting up again. And mostly because of Sinister (now 9yo). We have returned to school (in fact, we are Week 3, I think), and already the EG-spawnling has received a rather hefty assignment (more on his […]
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.
