Back on the train..

So here aim again, is six o clock in the morning I actually managed to get a seat on the train this time, there was a rather big mess at work yesterday. Really destroyed most general duties I’ll have to smash the queues today and make up for some of the lost time. Forgot my lunch again.

It’s becoming really annoying I need to re think my mornings.. Thirty seven minutes just does not leave that much room for error just enough time for a cup of chai, a shower, get dressed and a quick. Read through my usual suspects (hacker News, slashdot, news.com.au)

Te new house is starting to look more like a place to live now and nota big place full of boxes. I setup my bass rig in one of the spare rooms.. Found out my active detonator bass needed a new battery.. Not cool won’t get an active bass ever again.. Too much hassle, it’s a nice bass but the detonator has been rather problematic for me, it always seems to lose it’s shape in the changing weather, the neck always needs adjustment at least twice a year.

It’s kind of funny really, I know that the entire trip to work takes around forty minutes, however the trip to work always seems to be a lot quicker Than the trip back. With all the major news paper claiming that scientists have found out that some particles can travel dater than the speed of light, perhaps city rail have also figured it out too?(doubt it, they couldnt keep a train on time to save the world.)

One day I’ll learn how to service them myself the music store makes a killing on that.

On the train

So today is the first day of a brand new week.last night I felt particularly motivated so I decided to bring my bass guitar back to work so I could practice more. However I fund the experience rather enlightening. Firstly moving such an instrument is quite painful.

With a case it weighs an excess of doubt ten kilos plus the space it actually takes up is quite large. I hate to say it. But it is quite an inconvenience to the other passengers on the train… Next time I will just take the car.

I feel quite guilty and a little hypocritical as I usually give nasty glares at some of the other passengers who bring large luggage bags onto the train (especially people heading to the airport) I guess This will be a good lesson of being mindful of others.

Hopefully I will use my lunch time valuably and not waste this trip and not irritate many of the other passengers.
