@SnarkyPlatypus It’s probably not as bad as the time @unsungsongs and I were wandering Newcastle with an empty pram.

@chrisjrn I can barely see what’s in the photo of the railway maintenance rollingstock, there’s so much rain!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chrisjrn

We have passed Blaxland. The bus now runs direct to Blacktown. It’s pretty special for everyone.

via Janetter for Mac

@chrisjrn Oh no, the Blue Mountains trains are down for track maintenance your aeroflyingplanes are just getting too wet.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chrisjrn

It’s not getting better, is it Sydney? instagr.am/p/WD6gVdiFoq/

Looks like they’re re-ballasting vast sections of the Blue Mountains line today. It’s a good thing granite isn’t water soluble.

Springwood. Prospective passenger: “Is this [bus] express to Blacktown?” Driver: “It’s as express as you’ll get.”

The six are an old married couple, two lads heading to Springwood for a Saturday night, a young woman with her baby (oops so seven) and me.

via Plume for Android

The bus has eight passengers. Two young women from further up the mountain, and six who joined at Wentworth Falls.

Thanks, @BelRae @domknight @stufromoz @juhasaarinen @semlouise, but everything has been sorted. I decide quickly.

via Janetter for Mac

@juhasaarinen @domknight Thanks for the suggestions, but I know how to play the cheaper stuff. Anyway, I have negotiated a solution.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

@domknight @juhasaarinen Just as I was moving from “search” to “book”, the last room near the CBD for under $400 vanished.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to domknight

@domknight @juhasaarinen Yeah, this is high season for tourists, Mardi Gras, and conferences, and the weather mornings mean plans change.

Soren_Ltd It’s amazing how authors always make their books metaphors for exactly what’s happening in the lives of the book club members who read them.

SnarkyPlatypus Now I have the concept of Jesus Christ Superstar done to the hits of the Spice Girls stuck in my head.

Well, against my better judgement, in this weather, and in the absence of trains, I’m nevertheless going to Sydney tonight.

@janinesymons @matt_levinson “Hate” is too strong a word for me. Key reason it its pointlessness. Short run, doesn’t go anywhere useful.

So if you reckon so many political stories are stupid, why spend so much time reading them? Perhaps read something else? Go to the pub?

BernardKeane It’s OK, though, we’ll just forget all about how some politicians insisted on something patently false, and journalists took them seriously.

BernardKeane What happened to “virtual caretaker”? Haven’t heard of that for a while. All those journalists thought it was a Thing. Guess they moved on?

juhasaarinen @stilgherrian @jim_newell The DHS made a terrible mistake by impounding his boat, and not @arrington himself… unforgiveable.
