Got a new laptop. It’s definitely NOT a mac. All comments about mac wankers aside, I use MS so much for work that I couldn’t claim a mac on my tax so that puts it out of my price range.
Okay, I’ve got to share this story. My friend thought his mum was using “LOL” fairly randomly in her text messages. When he visited her he asked about it. She was like, “yeah, Lots Of Love.” Ha. Then he was like I hope you haven’t used it inappropriately. Found out she’d sent an email to her friend – sorry to hear your mum died, LOL! Oops.
So I kinda failed on my bento challenge this week. I started the week fine then fell in a heap mid-week. I’m finding I fall in a heap mid-week about most things so my next challenge is to get more sleep. That way I’ll avoid being too buggered to think by Wednesday.
Living in the suburbs you learn a lot about life. My sister asked me what I thought the boundary was for thinking it’s okay to dress badly when you live in the burbs. She meant how many months it took but I thought she meant geographically so I said Thornbury. I think Thornbury is around about it though. I saw a girl dressed all cute and Harajuku style at the train station the other day. I don’t know why but I wanted to thank her. Also, why are the peak hour trains filled with people who look unemployed?
The suburbs and public transport are a weird combo. I used to think public transport was mainly used by people on drugs. Now I realise the whole system was actually designed by people on drugs. Like, I used to think that if a bus went to a train station it would be kind of timetabled to arrive and depart in some kind of synchronicity to the trains. Ha, I mock innocent inner city me. That is like believing in the tooth fairy or something.
I am also starting to realise how lazy inner city folk are. I am about 2 km from the station. Not too far to walk, you’d think. So why are the last 2 km of my train route almost continous train platforms? We don’t need 18 train stations in Richmond. Those lazy Richmond bastards could actually WALK to the city from home.
And Victoria Park = WTF? In all my years of catching the Epping/Hurstbridge trains, I’ve seen like a total of 3 people get on or off there. Why is it a train station? You go two foot and you are at Collingwood station anyway.
Also, don’t run express trains if there is no infrastructure for it. There is ONE set of rail tracks. It doesn’t work. Morons.
I think they should just get Japan Rail to take it over. In Japan, they never say “JR apologise for any inconvenience caused”. You know why? Because they never cause any inconvenience. Melbourne, your public transport is pants.
