Train Long Suffering

“The name of the train is

‘Train Long Suffering'”

Train Long Suffering, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

WARNING: If you don’t understand Nick Cave’s singing and screaming about a train, click here to get the lyrics.

Fine, now that you’re listening (or you should be listening) to Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ Train Long Suffering, we can begin.

If you’re studying at the UJI, you probably are from Castellón or live there during the school term. Lucky you. I (as well as some of you) am not. I live in Valencia and I have to get up early to go to the UJI. Very early.05:00-early. And, man, getting up at 05:00 is a bitch. Catching the bus is no pleasuring task either, but, hey, it’s better than walking to the station.

But, the train. Oh, the train. The first days I thought “well, it’s not that bad… I’ll listen to music, read, plan how to conquer Europe… It will be nice”. That was the first week. From the second week on, I started hating the “cercanías Renfe, destino Castellón. Vía 1, sector 1. Salida inmediata”.

All the horrors which have befallen me, well, Renfe is to blame

All the horrors which have befallen me, well, Renfe is to blame

 

Well, some of you may say “don’t complain, you silly sod! You can sleep in the train!”. Well, I tried, but I can’t sleep with all the noise and the siren and everything. Now, I can tell you that some people can. Yes, they can. They even drool while they’re sleeping and mumble things like “hrrrn I’mlatemybossisgonnafireme…”.

But the worst part is that trains have ruined many songs for me! I can’t listen to many songs without hearing the word “train”!

It’s training men, hallelujah, it’s training men

I wanna knooooow, have you eveeeer seeeen the traaaaain?

– For I am a traaaaaain dog, too!

That’s all for today.

P.S.: The songs quoted are:

It’s Raining Men, by The Weather Girls

Have You Ever Seen the Rain?, by Creedence Clearwater Revival

Rain Dogs, by Tom Waits

    Hi, this is you-know-who!

    I just wanted to say “Don’t complain, at least you can actually use the train’s seats.”

    I catch the same train (or I think so; we are talking about line 6, aren’t we?) and I only remember ONE occasion in which I wasn’t stand.

    By the way, thanks for your coment in my blog. In fact, I like yours more than mine. I lol’d at “Recent screams”, “Rotten bananas” and “Apetegories”.

    See you tomorrow in class!
