- The rail fan side of me is really coming back. New Zealand had the absolute coolest trains. Then some clever person decided to cancel most of the passenger services and close a lot of the branch lines. At least I've got books full of cool photos. And there are some genuinely clever people who are proposing reconstructing the Rimutaka Incline in FULL. I just about wet myself with excitement when I found that out. The RIMUTAKA INCLINE, people. It is a great tragedy that none of you probably know what the Incline was (well, except purplicious, who got the explanation earlier today, lucky her).
- In exactly one month, I shall be attending my first U2 concert. If you are there and U2 play 11 O'clock Tick Tock, you'll be able to identify me as the guy in the nosebleeds standing tall on his seat, pumping his fists in the air, screaming "ELEVEN O'CLOCK, TICK - FUCKING - TOCK!" Do you get this feeling I love 11 O'clock Tick Tock?
Have a good one, folks.
