Mental note: milo + mint slices = not exactly complimentary flavours.

I'm just having a mint slice right now too! But, uh, not with Milo. Never been keen on Milo, really.

Ali, going back to the earlier discussion (yes, really just so I can post a train picture) about the paint scheme stuff, with the yellow and royal blue VR livery you didn't remember. Here it is looking in much better quality than the earlier sample picture.

The best part? This photo was taken last Tuesday. El Zorro are so desperate for motive power on the Warrnambool freights that they're leasing heritage locos off the preservation groups, and S 303 happens to be preserved in the royal blue and yellow.

Yeah, I've gathered that they got rid of that livery by the early eighties. Might've been even earlier. It seems V/Line is very efficient at repainting its trains in the new liveries it adopts. Go to New Zealand and you can fairly effortlessly spot locomotives in "Fruit Salad/International Orange" livery, despite the fact it was ostensibly abandoned in 1993 and numerous new paint schemes have been introduced since then!

(I love the nicknames bestowed upon Kiwi paint schemes, though it doesn't seem to happen in Victoria. We've had things like Clockwork Orange, Bumble Bee, Corncob ...)

Aww, looks like not even Bono's going to show at that Mandela gig in London today. I was hoping to have something to post to U2gigs.

Fruit Salad....


I love the crappy cardboard Daleks. And I saw the best LJ icon the other day... this Dalek in a basement, the only way out is a flight of stairs.... Dalek is saying "Fuck."

I remember it scared the shit out of me when I was really young - all I needed to hear was the theme song and I was hiding behind the couch

Maybe this is the point at which the other three chain him to the studio with a bottle of water and a notepad and pen within reach.

Fruit Salad had the front of the locomotive yellow, the side of the cab grey, and the rest of the locomotive this reddish orange. International Orange had the side of the cab reddish orange as well. (Or maybe the other way around; I have a tendency to muddle them and people often use just one to refer to both of them.) Sentimentally my favourite livery ever since all the locos when I was little ran around looking like that, though VR's royal blue and yellow is more aesthetically pleasing.

And that's great. Must admit I've watched precious little Dr Who though. Enough to have a rough idea of things, but that's it. I remember reading a few Dr Who books in my primary school's library. I probably read the entire library (besides any book my 5-10 year old mind deemed "girly"), coming to think of it ...

A great LJ icon I saw recently showed all eight planets, plus Pluto at the most distant point in its orbit saying "... fuck."

If you sat close enough to the TV while the theme song played, it was like you were time traveling through that thing as well.

Actually, judging by the current talk, I'd say they must've done that a few months ago after he went around a cappellaing All You Need Is Love everywhere, since it seems like things are just about done.
