And I walked the length of Khyber Pass Road to get to the Newmarket train station from my bloody inconveniently located hotel. Last time I let my father book things.

it has spawned an array of other awkward animal gestures that i find to be simultaneously annoying and amusing.
Oh, i see.

my favorite might be the awkward sperm, which is denoted by wiggling your finger across your body horizontally.

annoying ones are say the awkward moose, denoted by making antlers with your hands, which for me does not so much scream "somebody else is doing something awkward" as "i am an asshat"

Dear Victorian heritage railways,

Stop being located so bloody far from currently operational railways. I would like to get to you and ride your trains.

Sincerely,
Ax

(I'm having one of those evenings where I just want to photograph stuff and all my ideas seem to not be working out too well. But there's a Melbourne --> Geelong steam train on Sunday I plan to go photograph!)

At least it's down hill.

Kyber Pass is a bit dodgy. Broadway itself is fine.

Yeah, Broadway didn't seem too bad.

After one of the U2 gigs, I remember we ended up on Upper Queen Street, and that seemed iffy. Passed what had to be the dodgiest-looking Mongolian restaurant ever.

Interference is so good, that even when the Internet is down, it works.

If you search "awkward animals" on youtube, you will be presented with a variety of people engaged in an age-old white person activity: embarrassing themselves online. you will also learn how to signify "awkward whale" and "awkward butterfly" but experts have yet to determine if the animals differ in the connotation or degree of awkwardness they symbolize, or if they universally denote awkardness and the iterations merely provide some choice and variety to the overenthused gesturer.

If you wish to fit in among your white friends, simply make up an embarrassing and not-so-subtle hand gesture when something awkward happens. They will then ask you, "what are you doing?" "Oh," you can say, "it is the new (insert animal name here)." They will look at you with admiration for being "in" on an aspect of this trend before they were. As an additional bonus, you can now laugh behind their backs as they repeat this hand gesture in future awkward situations, all the while swelling with how cool they are for using it.
