And hey, he can easily play off as my hero when he catches a spider! Not having meat in a meal is unacceptable Yes, there are vegetarian Australians, but after dating my Aussie and meeting most of his friends, every meal required some sort of meat (mostly BBQ of sorts) otherwise it was considered as just an appetizer. Americans love his accent I, being one of the Americans that fell in love with his accent, obviously, but the Aussie will go to the bar, smile at someone (being nice, not flirty) and they will nod and turn back to their friends. I once thought I could surprise my man with a really delicious bean soup for dinner, only to hear "but where's the chicken? The minute he starts speaking, it's as if someone just yelled "FREE NUTELLA!!! It will have to wait; keep any and all conversations to a minimum when footy is on. ” I remember the first time I saw a huntsman spider. But a huntsman — though it’s basically the size of a small child — is harmless (duh!

2 hours and an attempt to read Chinese mapquest later, no satisfaction. Apparently they don't have time to speak in full worded sentences "Meet me for a bevi this arvo? He wears thongs He wears thongs confidently and doesn't care who's watching!
And come Australia Day (one of the holiest days of the year), your entire day will be in synch with the Triple J Hot 100, or a countdown of the 100 best songs that year.
The only station on in your car ever (if it’s not talk radio about footy of course) will most likely be Triple J.
