You Know What I Miss From The Old Forums?

Very funny topic closing posts! SPIRIT and Turakki #1 Lavasurfer (mainly) used to do them all the time, and I always looked forward to seeing their closing posts. Sadly, both of them seem to have mostly disappeared, and AFAIK no-one as of yet (except Nuhrii the Metruan just recently, prompting me to make this entry) has made any sort of attempt to make a funny topic-closer.

If I'm wrong, please do enlighten me.

Trains

Posted by Makuta_of_Oz , Nov 05 2011 · 100 views
trains
Something I've always loved doing was travelling to new places on trains. I've loved trains my whole life, and always got a thrill out of train travel. Lately, though, travel along the train line I live near to the city has become stale, because I've done it so much in my life, and as of late, I've travelled parallel to the line by car quite a bit, to and from my nan's place (before she went in to care).

When I move away, I hope to live near another train line for a fresh change. Many train lines in this region have connecting diesel lines and services that take country passengers to the city. I'd love to live near a line that has one of those.

I've only travelled on a non-tourist diesel train once in my life (about to be twice this Friday), so I'd live the chance to do that more.

Examples of electric passenger trains that run in Melbourne:
Posted Image-A very common train in all parts of Melbourne. Connex no longer runs our train services.
Posted Image-A more common train on northern lines (I think), does not run on my line. I've only been on this kind of train once, on a trip with Scouts to Puffing Billy. It is designed to be graffiti-proof, and easier to clean.
Posted Image-Another common train on my line. Also graffiti-proof.
Posted Image-The oldest trains on the network, probably close to retirement. Only few enough to count on one hand still run.

Examples of diesel passenger trains that run in Victoria:
Posted Image-This was the train that inspired me to travel on a diesel this Friday, after seeing one go by at a level crossing near TAFE. I have never been on one before (though I did nearly get the chance on the way to April's Pokemon tournament), and it would be a dream come true to get the chance.
Posted Image-This rail-motor is what runs on the diesel line near home, and will be the diesel I will travel on on Friday. On our line, however, the train is only 2 coaches long, rather then three like here.
Posted Image-Last time I went down this diesel line, this diesel train was in service there. Sadly, we couldn't take it home because it broke down later that day, so we were forced to take the bus. This particular diesel has since been retired and replaced by a rail motor, but others of its class still run on other lines.

Why Must People Be Nitpicky?

Posted by Makuta_of_Oz , Nov 05 2011 · 82 views
Bionicle and BZPower
In my previous entry I stated that I wanted to contact and befriend a Canadian with incontinence and a fear of social media, as much as I want Bionicle back. However, I was stupid enough to say "almost as much", and got flamed about it. Not even a word about the disabled person himself!

Why are priorities more important than the well-being of someone disabled, dare I ask? :mad:

I've wiped the comments clean so we can start fresh with REAL discussion.

Happy Birthday Dorothy The Dinosaur!

Posted by Makuta_of_Oz , Nov 02 2011 · 112 views

According to a REALLY old video from the Wiggles (I think it was their first) called "Wiggle Time", November 3 is Dorothy the Dinosaur's birthday! Judging by the release of the video in 1993 that reveals that she turned 5, she would turn 23 today.

Planning A Trip Friday Week

Posted by Makuta_of_Oz , Nov 01 2011 · 59 views
trains
Next week, my disabled brother will be at respite for a week, and my parents will be going on holidays for the same time, leaving me free to do more of what I want. I do still have TAFE, but I'll be free to go on an outing on my own.

My plan is to go to a place called Stony Point, just like I had with my parents about a decade ago. My reasons for going on this trip, I want to keep to myself, because it's a little embarrassing to discuss.

Qantas

Posted by Makuta_of_Oz , Oct 30 2011 · 57 views
life news
QANTAS decided to put themselves first and neglect tens of thousands of passengers, including many sick and dying passengers, by grounding their entire fleet, losing more money over this pay dispute than they would've if they had done nothing.

I think QANTAS needs to just grow up and stop being so selfish. If not, then Australia will die, and the Global Financial Crisis will worsen.

5-Day Weekend

Posted by Makuta_of_Oz , Oct 29 2011 · 49 views
life news
So, because of TAFE and an upcoming public holiday, I get 5 consecutive days off TAFE! :D

Friday (when I did my driving test) was a normal timetable day off TAFE for me anyway, Saturday and Sunday were the weekend, Tuesday we get off because of Melbourne Cup Day, and Monday the TAFE gave us off because of Cup Day.

After that we only get 2 days of TAFE, and then 3 days off for a normal long weekend. Then things go back to normal (kind of; watch this space).

Your Second-Grade English Lesson For Today

Posted by Makuta_of_Oz , Oct 27 2011 · 112 views
life news
That's right, YOUR lesson, not YOU'RE lesson!

Okay, let's begin by learning about the words "there", "their" and "they're".
  • "There" refers to place. Eg. "I live just over there".
  • It can also be used in such context as "There is no need to worry."
  • "Their" refers to possession. Eg. "Their lawn needs mowing."
  • "They're" is a contraction. It is short for "they are". Eg. "They're not heading to school today."
Now, next up is the difference between "your" and "you're".
  • "You're" is another contraction, meaning "you are". Eg. "You're wasting my time."
  • "Your" refers to possession, just as "their" does, except the item belongs to you. Eg. "That's your problem."
  • Only use "you're" if you mean "you are". DO NOT use "your" in this case.
Next, we will learn about "to", "too" and "two".
  • "To" expresses motion regarding a destination. Eg. "We are heading to the shops."
  • "Too" means to a higher degree than someone or something can handle. Eg. "This boulder is too heavy for me to move."
  • "Two" is the number 2. Eg. "People even get this confused with the other two words sometimes."
Finally, we will learn the difference between "lose" and "loose".
  • "Lose", pronounced "LOOZ", is the opposite of "find". Eg. "I hope I don't lose my watch."
  • In some cases, it is also the opposite of "win". Eg. "Unless we do something we're going to lose the match!"
  • "Loose", pronounced "LOOSS", is the opposite of "tight" Eg. "If we don't fix this loose screw, the whole machine may fall apart!"
Thank you, and that's our second-grade English lesson for today. I hope no-one will get these simple words confused ever again. :angry:

Waiting Too Long For Dinner

Posted by Makuta_of_Oz , Oct 27 2011 · 64 views
life news
Well, today is my parents' anniversary, so they're out for dinner atm. My brother is also out at respite for the week, leaving me home alone for the night, so I only get to cook half the lasagne I usually cook on a Thursday. Sadly, it's taking twice as long to cook! I have to wait an hour instead of the usual half an hour! I LOVE MY LASAGNE! I CAN'T WAIT THAT LONG!! :crying:

I Think I've Stopped Growing...

Posted by Makuta_of_Oz , Oct 26 2011 · 38 views
life news
I just came back from an all-you-can-eat restaurant. Normally when I go there I have 3 or 4 dishes, plus desert. This time however, I could only manage 2 and desert. It's common for a growing teen to eat heaps, but I'm beginning to think that phase is now behind me...
