Oh, of course.

The most bogany person I know in New Zealand drinks pretty much nothing but rum and coke. Though she's also really sweet, more one of those people who just lived in a bogan context than a proper bogan.

No, stay. We're trying to burn through this thread and get somewhere new.

How's your evening been?

This is still one of my favourite photos I've taken

Virgin Blue 737 turning final to Coolangatta from the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, which is one of my favourite places on the Gold Coast.

Oooh, now that's cool.

And I must admit, for all the years I lived on the Gold Coast, I never actually went to the Currumbin Sanctuary.

It's either hiding it totally until they take a really obvious sip which requires waving the can around, or ducking and trying to drink from the can....think trying to get your head low while also trying to tip it back.

Either way I struggle to contain my laughter.

I like this pic of Z3 126 in the twilight on Dawson Street.

Haha. God, come on people, how hard would it be to pour it into a sportsbottle or something? Nobody would be any the wiser ... until you start rolling around drunk anyway.

I just thought we'd look less sad if we were carrying on a real conversation as well.

Following Z3 126 was Z3 127! Here it is charging up the curve at the southern end of Melville Road.

The funny part is, unless they were drunk the drivers probably wouldn't care.

The No Food/Drink sign at the front is a mere formality. I've seen people getting onto the bus drinking and carrying food and the drivers (for the most part) don't care.

A Z3 slowing on Melville Road before the Victoria Street intersection. The two storey building it's blocking is one of my favourites on Melville Road and I should take a photo of it one day.

It's brilliant. A small beacon of sanity amongst the tourist rubbish.

It's compulsory every time I'm there.
