@stibbons as one of The Seated, I figured I'd play the long game and let The Standing weaken each other first.

Apparently there's a points failure on my train line, and our driver just said "I don't know how long we'll be sitting here, but it'll probably be a while."

I live on the train now.

@Nikolai_Kingsley please no I need less human interaction on public transport, not more

@matt sounds great. I've always wanted a lake. I still remember as a kid when I found out there was one within walking distance of home. Well, an old reservoir kinda thing but it amazed me at the time.

@rolaveric nope, he was well settled in, even reading a bloody newspaper like some kind of caveman. I got off before him in the end.

Someone who I'd swear is roughly the same age as me just tried to offer me their seat on the train and I think my look of blank incomprehension and the delay caused by me removing my headphones took the whole exchange to amazing levels of awkwardness.

Here is a long thread on keeping moss as a houseplant that I pulled off my twitter, wrapped up as a blog post - so now you can read about practical moss gardening without having to visit that website :>

@Jo releasing yet another incompatible and isolated chat service should be a capital offence in itself, tbqh

Today my train was delayed which meant I got to spend 15 minutes on a platform at North Melbourne instead of at my desk at work and that's probably going to be the high point of my day.

@twiddlekins I actually did that once, many years ago, when the choice was that or walk in traffic. I was younger and more agile then.

I fully support the death penalty for people who park like this.
