Of Fast Trains and Poor Decisions

As I wrote this episode of the ShEvo Studios On Tour podcast, I was hurtling -- literally hurtling -- through the French countryside on a super comfy train. Waze told me we were clocking in at over 230 KPH, which is -- and I just checked this -- pretty damned fast, especially for an American who typically drives faster than trains. About every five minutes, another high speed train went rocketing by mere inches -- OK, maybe mere feet -- in the opposite direction.

Come to think of it, I probably should have said centimeters and meters. Ah, well. Not worth fixing, since it took me about four hours to assemble this four minute episode. Enjoy!

  • EVO: As I write this episode of the ShEvo Studios On Tour podcast, I'm hurtling -- literally hurtling -- through the French countryside on a super comfy train. Waze tells me we're clocking in at over 230 KPH, which is -- and I just checked this -- pretty damned fast, especially for an American who typically drives faster than trains. About every five minutes, another high speed train goes rocketing by mere inches -- OK, maybe mere feet -- in the opposite direction. When that happens, the sounds goes from idyllic -- like what you're listening to right now -- to this:

  • [loud train]

  • SHE: Yeah, I never heard it. In the last two "biological" days, we'd been through four airports, three busses, and miles of hiking through some of the less desirable places State-side. When you add in drinking and dining with good friends during that time AND zero sleep, the comfy chairs of Eurorail had me out before we pulled out of the station.

  • EVO: You totally missed out on some beautiful scenery while you were sleeping, baby! But I'm happy you were able to catch some much-needed shut eye. I'd have joined you, by my poor choices we're to compound on top one another. Too much coffee kept me up -- and gave you this new episode -- but it's the least stupid decision I've recently made. Unlike..

  • [Train no lingo]

  • EVO: But we'll manage. And I'll get some sleep. Perhaps tonight. And then it's a few blissful few weeks of rest and relaxation in the French countryside. Except for the three business meetings I scheduled for next week. Man, je suis un idiot doesn't seem to quite do it justice.

  • [HOU layover]

  • SHE: But by next weekend, we should be on a routine. Of sorts. Which means you can probably expect another episode of the podcast. It might even be longer.
