Movember day 11 update, and a hard-to-get photo
If you won’t donate for me growing a moustache, how about for getting this picture? Train, tram and bus in one pic.
Despite a train theoretically every minute or two between Flinders Street and Southern Cross, three tram routes (excluding the City Circle) and numerous bus routes passing this intersection, it took a surprising amount of time to get a photo of all three modes together.
I was also being fussy. I didn’t want a City Circle tram, I wanted a “real” PT route tram. I didn’t want a coach or a V/Line train, I wanted a route bus and a Metro train. Additionally I was trying to get the front of a bus, not the back. I’d have preferred a train on a closer track, but didn’t have all day to hang about. And one passing
beggar bogan had already asked me for a dollar, so I decided this would be good enough.
But maybe I’ll try again another day.
Or maybe you’d prefer to hear about the mo’
Day 11, and in the last day or two, for the first time the moustache is actually making its presence felt to me. For one, I can now see it in my field of vision without a mirror.
The other thing is I can feel it. I assume it’s now at a point where some of the hairs are reaching back and touching the skin, so there’s a slight itching sensation. Nothing too onerous yet, but clearly I’m now getting furry. It might need a trim over the weekend.
It’ll be interesting to see how it develops, but I can foresee that if the itching gets worse and I don’t get past it and accustomed to it, by the time the month is up, I’ll be wanting to shave the mo’ off as soon as possible.
