Lost in Translation
In a little social experiment to do with Aussie slang, today I ordered "chook nuggies" at McDonalds and got exactly what I wanted... chicken mcnuggets. Further proof that you can shorten and add "ies" to absolutely any word in this country.

Flight Fright
There's a phenomenon that I've noticed lately where you tell someone that you're about to take a huge trip, and they in turn feel compelled to tell you their most horrific travelling story. Listen, I don't want to hear about Uncle Henry's 52-hour layover after emergency-landing in Taipai. I don't need to know about your neighbor Bob's turbulence-inducing pukefest. And I certainly don't want to know about Aunt Judy's body cavity search. Okay? I've got some horror stories of my own... I don't need yours.

I'll probably be packing tomorrow. For now it's Hans's birthday celebration part four.
