Do you want an emergency ice shipment?

And perhaps some frozen water cubes too.

Fuuuuck. I just checked the Bureau of Meteorology and its Adelaide station reports that last night, it didn't even drop below 30C for you guys. That's fucking NUTS.

We at least got down to 25.5 at 2am, though it's been fairly consistently around 38 from 2pm until now.

Probably the best bus conversation i've had was last week where our bus started following the wrong route when we got to Pakuranga. The girl and guy in front of me and my mate turned around and we were all very concerned we'd got on the wrong bus, because as we'd all learnt sometimes the drivers pull up to where the service starts, and changes the sign while accepting passengers.

That was a fun 20 odd minutes.
Oh dear. That reminds me of when Kate caught a bus here in Melbourne, pushed the button to alert the driver that she wanted to get off, and he didn't stop. Four stops later, numerous people were waiting to get off and the bus driver just kept on going, oblivious to the people onboard. He then stopped in the middle of nowhere and let them off. Though I think they're partly to blame, as neither Kate nor anyone else actually said anything like "uh, you just drove past my stop" to the driver.

That argument I mentioned was epic. It was a Friday night and these people must have been totally sloshed. Half the group got on the tram, while half stayed off and they argued about whether it was the right tram or not. I've never heard so much swearing in my life. The driver went to talk to them twice and they still kept arguing. Eventually, none of them were actually blocking the doors, so the driver closed them and just left. The guy beside me and I both knew they were on the wrong tram but didn't want to say anything because this crazy bogan lady was absolutely convinced it was the right tram. We were both tempted to ride the tram to the end to see what happened when she got to the terminus and it was the wrong place.

I've seen people in that situation before. How hard is it to say something nice and quick?

The driver has never missed my stop - more often than not they're asking me where the stop is. That was real effective the first time i caught the bus.

Sounds like a great fight too

Holy shit, Bonnie. SBS just reported that today was Adelaide's 12th consecutive day with temperatures above 35.

Good god. I couldn't cope with two days over 35.

I think some people are just gutless. I don't get it. Though I've noticed some tram drivers are spectacularly incoherent and sometimes those people who do ask questions just get more confused.

I've never had my stop missed either. Kate ironically did, the very day after her bus experience. The tram sailed through my stop and pulled up at the next one.

I love the local bus route that runs down my street - although it has designated stops, it will stop absolutely anywhere. I just wish I had more reason to use it! The trams now only stop at their officially designated stops - the closest is a block from me.

OK, do any of you guys know websites with good recipes, especially Mediterranean ones? I'm getting bored with my current dinners.

I probably wouldn't kick up a fuss if the driver missed my stop - i don't mind the walk and my normal stop is pathetically close to my house. I actually normally get off several stops early to walk it.

I've found our bus drivers are pretty good at talking to people - they usually seem to get the barely english speaking asian passengers to the right place.

I like my bus. By the time my stop comes around most people are off, and i tell the driver that if he wants he can cut down a certain street that will get him back to the depot sooner.

To be honest, I'm not sure of any particular sites. What sort of Mediterranean dishes in particular were you thinking of cooking? Poultry? Breads?

Oh, right, Mediterranean . No idea, sorry.

By the way, I'm not really online, just lurking.
