Go me. I had my camera at the Melbourne meet-up last month, but did I remember to use it when Ali and Melissa were around? Noooo. I only remembered when Ali had already left! But I TOOK PHOTOS OF TRAINS!

Here's the rear of a train disappearing into the City Loop, with my train arriving at left in the background.

And let me guess: in discovering this, your computer froze about 10,000 separate times?

Ten bucks Axxo's 38000th is spent on an equally bad - if not worse - Phail Collins joke.

Or another terrible joke related to whatever Interfad is going on at that time.

All the others fall on Fridays when I don't have class anyway, or during exam/holiday periods when it doesn't matter.

I far prefer cold. In cold weather, you can wrap up with more layers. Not much you can do in heat! Especially when you're me and you refuse to go outside with short sleeves or short pants. I'd love just a sprinkle of snow ...
Do you get Easter Monday? Or is that in a holiday or something (and heck, are there hols that soon?!)?

Monash didn't/doesn't observe Melbourne Cup day... I had an exam on that day one year. Thank god they put on buses for us to get to Caulfield!!

Fair point on wrapping up, but all else being equal, I'm more comfortable in warm weather... I hate being cold. I feel the cold more than the heat...

Nah, it'll probably be calling somebody stupid for daring to suggest IALW is better than Heartland or something.

Easter Monday is during the "midsemester" break, so while I have it off, I'd have it off even if it weren't observed. And way to come too early, Easter!

I don't think Melbourne University observes Melbourne Cup Day either. But the odds of that even mattering for me are very slim, as I will at most have two exams and the exam period is three weeks long.

When you come from Wellington, cold weather is about as natural as following rugby, not using over half of the available vowels, and hating Aucklanders. I love good cold weather; it reminds me I'm alive. A good breeze that chills you to the bone =

I guess it's nice to be reminded that you're alive, when you're about to die of hypothermia. Still got all your fingers and toes?

Yeah,it was a rocking picture too. I had it all figured out and then not even Photoshop can make a pixelated paint picture look decent when resized.

And that is why I was a fool to draw the TV Gaga Bono in MS paint.

We Wellingtonians are a strange bunch sometimes, at least as far as weather goes. You Melburnians would be too, if it weren't for Tassie sheltering you from southerlies off the Antarctic!

You with your bass and Liam with his guitar are going to make me feel bad about neglecting my guitar and guilt me into getting it out and practising one of these days, aren't you?
