Hey, if you are free next Sunday (16th), do you fancy going to take some photo's in the Botanic Gardens?? Do you wanna come too Ali??
How about I send a carrier pigeon when I'm getting close so that you know to wave back?

And that sounds really good! I've nothing planned for that day. I think we were actually talking about doing some sort of pre-Saint Paddy's Day meetup then but never got past the "yeah, that's a nice idea" stage.

You truly do live in Phailadelphia.

Every attempt at my high school to schedule anything earlier than 8am flat-out failed. Nobody turned up.

7am is for sleeping, or else blinking blearily at clocks and rolling over again.



I was going to Melbourne from C'maine every week during most of the '94 school year... I loved the old V-Line train carriages, they were solid... by comparison, the Sprinters are made of tinfoil and they wobble and shake and you can feel every microscopic irregularity in the rails. And back then they were all BRAND NEW and stunk of that nauseating new car/train smell...
I don't get motion sick on trains... but I did on those damn things.

I think the closest Septa is 10 or 15 minutes away. I rarely ever ride trains, since usually I can drive anywhere I need to go. Only when I'm in another city do I need to ride a train.

Yeah, I'm only faintly aware 7am actually exists. I actually got up at 8:30am this morning. Earliest I've been up in weeks. Possibly a month.

Yikes, that's a fair bit of travel. Are the old V/Line carriages the ones they're still using on the carriage services today? And the painful thing about railcars is that they usually are a more economic proposition than carriage trains on the more lowly trafficked routes. Carriage trains win on so many levels though.

In my poor, city-dweller misfortune, I've predominantly only ridden electric multiple units, though.

Throw it out the window and buy a new one?

That's the Axver solution for anybody with $2,000 to spare, anyway.

No $2000 here, I'm afraid. Plus, I haven't even had this computer for a year. I'm just gonna get rid of all the shit on it sometime.

My earliest start is midday.

Though I had my meeting with the Royal Historical Society today and they might want me to come in some mornings. I'm going to be working with them on an upcoming exhibition about the history of all the markets in Melbourne. They've got shitloads of research, it's quite amazing really, but now it needs to be organised into an exhibition and some fresh eyes - i.e. me - are rather essential.
