I love the smell of Brisbane's new cross-river tunnel in the morning:
I filmed the return journey too, but thought another 2 minutes of tunnel might be too much - even though it was accompanied by "America - F*** Yeah" from Team America: World Police, followed by "Africa" by Toto. (When The Wah told me he wanted to drive through with Ride of the Valkyries playing, I'd decided to make a mix tape with other appropriately tunnel-esque music. While you may think "Africa" by Toto could not remotely be linked with tunnels - and you may be right - I challenge anyone to suggest that it is not good driving music for any occasion.)
It's a pretty sweet tunnel; and I certainly hope it gets used once the free honeymoon period ends.
In other news, the Winner of the Buyster Rugs competition will be announced soon. Apologies for the delay; it's been a crazy busy few days, and I want to give the entries proper and thoughtful consideration.
And as a somewhat interesting side-note, this is my 600th entry on The Bruising Adventures of Girl Clumsy. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? I don't know. But feel free to leave comments/suggestions/ideas below.
Ya know, I am not surprised at all!!! I never cease to be amazed at the things y'all will do for the blogosphere!! Well done!!ReplyDelete
Oh, and "accentuate the positive" at the end just made it form me... What?? No bomb noises??
600 entries ALL FABULOUS, here is to the next 600ReplyDelete
600? That's awesome in STEREO. World of Bollocks is about to hit 300 and I was going to make a MASSIVE DEAL out of it, but given you're times-two and basically haven't, feeling less inclined.ReplyDelete
Whaddya mean she hasn't made a big deal of it? She's giving away a goddamned rug AND SHE DROVE THROUGH A FRIKKEN TUNNEL! Beat that, oh Doctor of the Yob.ReplyDelete
600 posts is an enormous achievement - congratulations!ReplyDelete
"I hope it rains down" is not a sentiment you want to promote while you're driving underneath a river I would have thought.ReplyDelete
Congrats on 600 posts. Don't ever stop.
Everytime I hear Africa I think of you Nat :DReplyDelete
And that WAS freakishly timed!ReplyDelete
Holy shit, the tunnel is exactly one Ride of the Valkyries long. That is the most awesome thing ever.ReplyDelete
I nearly went for a drive through after work today but saw the sign on Wynnum road saying "Clem-7 heavily congested- Use Alternate Route" and realised I was driving towards a voluntary traffic jam, so I turned around and went home. Ill go later in the week when the novelty's worn off.

Hope the Bass and the volume were cranked up to full ahead and all windows were open...ReplyDelete
The reverbs would have been great

Congrats on 600 Nat! keep 'em coming.ReplyDelete
I'm glad the tunnel didn't eat you but then you were playing Ride of the Valkyries so it wouldn't have dared.ReplyDelete
And Hoorah for post number 600! =)
Congrats on the 600.ReplyDelete
That tunnel looks exactly like the busway. Only with cars.
