I'm certainly in no hurry to take photos from traffic! I'll take them from the footpath or tram stops or the Bourke St stairs at Spencer Street Station, thank you very much! I wish to live.
*makes note - Ax has already heard all my tram-related anecdotes*

Living is good.

Well, I've not encountered inspectors on trams, so that's ok.

On trains, nobody asks, and everyone stares. I think they usually pretend it's a fishing rod (the spear head is covered, but a bit of the butt sticks out) or conveniently go blind. I also usually look pretty angry whilst carrying them (they're heavy!)

Ali: it was great, during o-Week, the security guards asked us to sheath all of our weapons. We got annoyed, and moved to one of the lawns. Two cops walked right past us as we were practicing and were practically going "OH COOL I WANNA DO THAT!"

I need to get back into model railways. Only two things:

1. I don't have anything remotely resembling sufficient space.
2. I don't have anything remotely resembling sufficient funds.

Don't worry, I've probably told the same stories multiple times ...

I was into Warhammer at one stage, then realised that it'd suck so much money out of me that I'd be living on water during uni. I kinda stopped then.

Model railways anything like that?

This whole post is made of

Bringing your spear and swords on Thursday?

That could be a bit of a crimp on your plans, all right.

Now you've reminded me of Red Dwarf... let me see if I can quote this...

Kryten: *describes dire situation they are in*
Cat: "Well, let's put on the jet-powered rocket pants and junior-bird-man the hell out of here!"
Kryten: "An astute and inventive suggestion, sir, but for two tiny drawbacks. One; we don't have any jet-powered rocket pants, and Two; there is no such thing as jet-powered rocket pants outside of the fictional cartoon, Johnny Rocket Pants."

Warhammer is comparatively cheap, I'd say.

Especially if you model New Zealand like I do. You can pick up some fairly cheap mass-produced shit for US prototypes, but Australia (especially outside NSW's railways) will screw you and New Zealand's even worse. I will probably have to make a lot of models myself - and my practical model-making skills are pathetic. I'm an operations man. It will surely come as no surprise to anybody that I can do really spiffy timetables.

Unfortunately no, I usually only train on Tuesdays. Maybe later in the year!

It does mean though, if you go to those concerts at Union House, I do stand out from the crowd just a bit if I have my spear.

I've never actually watched Red Dwarf. I suppose I should sometime.

That's what I kept meaning to clarify...

That uncle of yours that found himself standing next to Bono at the mixing desk (or whatever they call that thing with all the knobs and buttons and blinking lights) at a Sinead O'Connor gig...
... was I having a deaf moment, or did you actually say that Bono kissed him??

Something makes Warhammer look cheap?!

And don't forget to mention it to U2 - increase your chances of being hired as setlist manager

Ah, righto. Well, I would quite like to come along to at least a couple of the concerts. I think it'd be good fun.
