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.
You're actually allowed to eat and drink on Melbourne public transport, which is a pleasant change from Queensland. They're usually very strict about it there, and the trains are cleaner as a result. Though one day when my friend and I were riding the Brisbane network and were starving out in Cleveland, we told the ticket inspector that we hadn't eaten since 7am (it was 2:30pm) and we were quite obviously making an effort to catch all crumbs in our wrapping, so she was quite happy for us to keep eating!

Washing dishes sucks donkey bollocks.

I opened the thread to take a squizz then randomly decided I should do the dishes now, rather than tomorrow night when there's twice as many and I have to cook right after. That sucks even more donkey bollocks.

Also, interrupted sleep.

Certainly lots of planes and trams....

A friend of mine is married to a pilot and if he were here, he would be able to spout off the serial numbers, history, flightpath and the name of the bloke who put down the carpet in the aisle, he's such a bore

I've found my buses are usually very clean, which I suspect is more down to the bus company, because most of the buses that belong to Stagecoach are filthy.

I'm just going to be self-congratulating and post my best photo ever yet again, because I likes it.

This was what I watched, by the way.

We're Not Dressing (1934)

Wouldn't recommend it to anyone who likes plots or doesn't enjoy pointless segments involving bears rollerskating on boats.

And kangaroo balls? I need to do dishes either tonight or tomorrow morning.

And I knew that the rock photo would bring you out of hiding EVENTUALLY.

I suspect that guy could possibly be Ian's favourite person.

I could move back to trains if you're sick of trams.
