I’m going to become a “trainspotter spotter” until that becomes popular
… then I’ll probably become a “trainspotter spotter spotter”.
I don’t know what I’ll do next, when that becomes popular!
note: there’s an old steam train around here that shoots out of a mountain tunnel onto a trestle bridge that goes over a river every Sunday around 11:30 am. It must look pretty cool: there are always a half dozen trainspotters waiting for it.
double note: here is the steam train on another section of the track, if you are into trains and stuff.
Today I missed the train again … and the boat … and the bus …
but I thought about them.

I’d like to visit every country in the world: it’s not a goal, it’s just a wish.
If it happens, it happens: if it doesn’t, no problem.
I don’t want to be the person who says, “I’ve been there.”
I don’t want to be the person who pulls out his passport for you to have a look at.
I don’t want to be the person who is wearing an “East Timor” t-shirt.
I just want to see how all the other people live on this planet.
I’m a curious sort.
note: I don’t want to go to the moon: there are no people there.
double note: wouldn’t it be nice to “go on location” like actors. … “I’m cutting hair in Zimbabwe this week and next week I’ll be in Honduras for a few weeks, after that I’m scheduled for Belgium.”
triple note: if I don’t have millions of dollars, I’ll go to all the cheap countries first. hee hee!
The only person I said more than 2 words to today was the bald guy in the shower at the gym: I asked him how often he shaved his head.
“once every 3 days was the answer.“

I went to a bicycle shop with Mr. Pettit today. He is a cyclist: it’s one of his passions/hobbies.
Me? What’s my passion/hobby?
I collect thoughts, phrases, ideas, and other things requiring little space.
I don’t need a space ship … a space shoebox will do.
note: I don’t need a bicycle either … just a seat is okay.
double note: since Razzbuffnik seems to be on hiatus, here is a band that defines cool … or hip on planetross:
Today I realized that humming in a drum is okay sometimes.

A hobby is an activity or interest that is undertaken for pleasure or relaxation in one’s spare time. (from wikipedia)
My hobby isn’t working!
note: these are “Spare Times“.
double note: more spare time during a strike period sounds good if you’re bowling, but not so good if you aren’t.
triple note: I’m a “license plate spotter“! … yeah, yeah, yeah I know what you’re thinking … “where’s ‘0’“? … it’s elusive … very elusive.
quadruple note: there are some serious “slobbies” out there!
notes to myself #14
At least up until 44, you’ve never run out of gas! … knock on wood.

I’ve found a hobby!
I’ve signed up for this great course; it involves working with my hands, making things, being creative.
I don’t consider myself a craft orientated person, but I may have a knack for this one.
note: the little stand outside the shop was empty: no surprise there really.
double note: I think I have an “appointment” with “disa“.

I’m not a big collector.
I have a clear plastic coin bank that is shaped like a head. I don’t like to collect change, so I am filling it up with matches instead.
Places aren’t giving away matches like they used to: I guess the non-smokers are winning the battle.
I’m not too serious about my match collection.
It’s just a bonus when I find some.
note: I’m thinking about collecting plastic heads next.
