Public Transport over Christmas

For all the Melbourne locals here, Public Transport is free on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, plus V/Line is free on Christmas Day.

Neat!

Bugger.
All we get is a timetable with half the peak hour services on it.
...though it does run later into the evenings...

As one who will be out and about on Christmas Eve and Boxing Day - THANK YOU!

it's all because everyone will be too drunk to buy a ticket...

Wouldn't you think that would just make them more eager to ticket people?

On a slightly less cynical note, that's awesome. I thought it was just on Christmas day that PT was free.

Maybe they can't get enough ticket-checkers to work on the day so this is just them going, "Fuckit. And it beats the ones willing to work from being whined at with C'mon, mate, it's Christmas".

Mmm, true, all of those things. :D And for us, it just means free, so yay that!

That's not being cyncial. I had people on the tram this morning that were too drunk to sit properly - let alone purchase a ticket. Yes this was 7:30am Christmas Eve ....

So there are actual services running on the day? :) (Stuffit-- I'm still gonna ask for a lift when I finish up after work. :) But thanks for the headsup. If I wasn't working, and didn't have family committments, I'd use the opportunity to take the kids to the zoo or something.)

You have the lyrics to Desert Rose down the side of your page. JUST noticed that. Awesome.

The song means a lot to me. It touches my heart in ways profound.

Re: !!!!!
Ditto for me. Lisa heard me squeal, then steal her internet from her so I could squeal at you. :)

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
