A bit of Australia Day fun.  Regardless of how you actually FEEL about this particular day (if you call it Happy Invasion Day for instance), this day is now more about celebrating “our lucky country” … giving thanks to being part of this country which is actually a pretty cool country.

You know you are Australian if…….

  • You believe that stubbies can be either drunk or worn.
  • You’re liable to burst out laughing whenever you hear of Americans “rooting” for something.
  • You pronounce Melbourne as ‘Mel-bin’.
  • You can translate: ‘Dazza and Shazza played Acca Dacca on the way to Maccas.’
  • You believe it makes perfect sense for a nation to decorate its highways with large fibreglass bananas, prawns and sheep.
  • You think ‘Woolloomooloo’ is a perfectly reasonable name for a place.
  • You’re secretly proud of our killer wildlife.  (YAY for having most of the world’s most venomous snakes!)
  • You believe it makes sense for a country to have a $1 coin that’s twice as big as its $2 coin.
  • You understand that ‘Wagga Wagga’ can be abbreviated to ‘Wagga’ but ‘Woy Woy’ can’t be called ‘Woy’.
  • You believe that cooked-down axle grease makes a good breakfast spread. You’ve also squeezed it through Vita Wheats to make little Vegemite worms.
  • You believe all famous Kiwis are actually Australian, until they stuff up, at which point they again become Kiwis.
  • You know that certain words must, by law, be shouted out during any rendition of the Angels’ song ‘Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again’ And “Living next door to Alice”.
  • You believe that the confectionery known as the Wagon Wheel has become smaller with every passing year!!!!!
  • You believe that the more you shorten someone’s name the more you like them.
  • You know what it’s like to swallow a fly, on occasion via your nose.
  • You know it’s not summer until the steering wheel is too hot to handle and a seat belt buckle becomes a pretty good branding iron.
  • You shake your head in horror when companies try to market what they call ‘Anzac cookies’.
  • You still think of Kylie as ‘that girl off Neighbours’.
  • When working in a public bar (aka “pub”), you understand male customers will feel the need to offer an excuse whenever they order low-alcohol beer.
  • You know how to abbreviate every word, all of which usually end in -o: arvo, combo, garbo, kero, metho, milko, muso, rego, servo, smoko, speedo, righto, goodo etc.
  • You know that there is a universal place called “woop woop” located in the middle of nowhere…no matter where you actually are.
  • You know that none of us actually drink Fosters beer, because it tastes like shit. But we let the world think we do. Because we can.
  • You have, at some time in your life, slept with Aeroguard on in the summer. Maybe even as perfume.
  • You’ve only ever used the words – tops, ripper, sick, mad, rad, sweet – to mean good. And then you place ‘bloody’ in front of it when you REALLY mean it.
  • You know that the barbecue is a political arena; the person holding the tongs is always the boss and usually a man. And the women make the Salad.
  • You say ‘no worries’ quite often, whether you realise it or not.
  • You understand what no wucking furries means.
  • You’ve drank your tea/coffee/milo through a Tim Tam.
  • You own a Bond’s chesty. In several different colours.

I’m proud to be a bloody Aussie!! lol….

    Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?
