Yay, Wales!

It's not enough to keep me awake though.

I ended up walking half an hour from Moonee Ponds railway station to home. I am thoroughly buggered, but for some reason still glued to the computer ...

Yep. Should sleep soon, but I'm enjoying some port right now. Never realised just how much I like the stuff.

Did you see my post earlier about my drinking last night?

I think so, yeah. What'd you have, four glasses of port, a bit of vodka and some red, that right? Not bad - a few cups of port really does me in.

I'm sort of pissed off. I'm back in Minlaton and went over to a mate's place and asked him if anything was going on there tonight (usually there is), he said there probably would be, it's complicated - he and some others went over to another nearby town to get a bunch of people to come over, but as far as I can tell they're still over there. Wouldn't be surprised if they show up when I'm about to go to bed. Fucking annoying, though. Especially since all I really wanted to do was score pot from someone there.

Yep. Also had this huge cup of a mix Fellow Albino Railfan made - lemonade, red cordial, and vodka. That was ... interesting. I was concerned about how scullable it was!

Surprised I didn't get substantially drunk. But god, I love port. Had a bit more this evening just because I like the taste so much.

I was also joking last night that vodka seems like it will be this winter's cheap solution to heating ...

Bah, complicated social stuff is too much of a hassle. My solution is usually just to tell people precisely what I think and then do what suits me best! As for you, you should just be in Melbourne already and have come to U2 3D!

Incidentally, Bonnie, be proud: the port I bought yesterday is from the Barossa Valley.

You think that's interesting? Wait til you try iced coffee mixed with chardonnay. Or one of those drinks where it's a group effort and everyone just puts whatever they want into the bottle (rum, vodka, tabasco, coffee, whiz fiz, pot etc.) and some lucky bastard gets to drink it. Actually, you might genuinely want to wait for that.

Port is delicious, I'm glad you like it, it's one of my favourite drinks too.

Yeah, well - that's really difficult with a lot of my friends. Nigh on impossible. In comparison to some of them, I'm almost organised.

A very wise choice.

Ivanovic won the French Open. I love her. She is such a class act.

I must say, I feel mixing any wine with any kind of coffee feels like such a waste of perfectly good wine. And next time we have a booze-up, maybe we'll try doing some kind of group effort! That sounds like it has potential for lulz. Speaking of our next booze-up, we were thinking we'd have to get something with an even higher alcoholic content than vodka next time, and Fellow Albino Railfan and I were a bit worried when we both blurted out absinthe at the same time. Neither of us have anything to properly serve absinthe though.

As for port, it's just a shame that I can't exactly afford the very best, i.e. vintage port.

I'm kind of fond of the reputation I've cultivated as a bit of a mild arsehole. It means that my friends EXPECT me to be bluntly honest - and are bluntly honest to me as well. Less difficulty in social relations.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing - you should try something like that! I'd almost suggest we did one while I'm around, though that may not be the wisest of ideas!

As for absinthe - well, you don't have to go to a higher spirit immediately, perhaps you just need something different to vodka that's also around the 40% mark, if not in slightly higher quantities. Though serving absinthe correctly is of course part of the fun, you can drink it just fine with cold water and a drop of sugar shaken in. You could try shots too, but... well, you probably don't want to do that.

I think I need to do a bit more of arseholing about, unfortunately I'm a bit more carefree socially than I may seem here. Sticking to the point is something I would like to teach a few of my mates to do. And listening.

The entire Adelaide suburban rail network is being electrified except the Belair line (it is pending some review, and until that is undertaken, electrification is not actually possible for some obscure technical reason I believe is related to signalling). The entire Adelaide suburban rail network is also being regauged from broad gauge to standard gauge for better national compatibility. There will be significant tram expansion, firstly to the Entertainment Centre and then to AAMI Stadium/West Lakes and Port Adelaide/Semaphore. The latter will involve an Australian first in that the tram will in places share a line with the Outer Harbour railway line - can't wait to see how the fuck that works out. Obviously, this means they're also ordering new trains and trams.

It's all stuff that should have been done a long time ago, but I am MASSIVELY impressed with the huge scope and vision of this. No half-measures here. The government's pulling out all the stops.

If you care enough, this PDF file has more info: http://www.adelaidemetro.com.au/gene.../OMPbudget.pdf

Whoa, cool! I'm surprised they'd go with something like this, public transport isn't really one of the strongpoints here.

Would be nice if there was another tram going down south (possibly Noarlunga, Blackwood or Marion?) but that's still neat.
