I recommend everyone come to the TVA meeting monday night, 7 pm at the Northcote Town Hall.

I expect to see you there Andrew!

Sorry, my psychiatrist tells me to avoid obviously insane people.

Ben: what does TVA stand for?

I wonder if the goons that are doing this kind of shit are the same kind of goons that beat me and a friend up 'for fun' the other week. I'm beginning to wonder if 'Jackass' has unleashed the fucking fury ...

... because you can't detect, let alone avoid, the subtly insane ones?

I believe the TVA stands for raising the Melbourne-Geelong railway line half a kilometre above the ground to give better views of the surrounding countryside, or something like that. That and drawing attention to the Militarisation of Public Transport.

It's almost like the SPK, isn't it?

Actually it stands for Transport Victoria Association.

You missed out BTW, Mallinson esq. turned up for the first time this year.

Next meeting is 1/12. Be there!

I'm not going unless you make the guy who used to stamp his feet, scream, turn bright red and threaten to resign several times in each meeting president again. He'd be entertaining.

The new president is good, but the exact opposite. He will sit at the meeting and propose writing a letter to someone who is not only sitting next to him but who lives at the same address also. He writes me letters when the distance from his house to the letter box is further than to my place.
