broad australian accent. Eg: "push off, ya flamin drongo!"

better car.

to your towel.

5: You start using words like "bloody" and "grouse" and start calling
people "champ".

6: You stop greeting people with "hello" and go straight to "how ya
doin?"

7: You've seriously considered running down to the shops in a pair of
ugh boots.

8: You own a pair of ugh boots.

9: You've been to a day/nighter cricket match and screamed out
incomprehensibly until your throat went raw.

10: You know the first verse to the national anthem but be buggered if
you know what "girt" means.

11: You have a story that somehow revolves around the excessive
consumption of alcohol and a mate named "Dave".

12: You've risked attending an outdoor music festival on the hottest day
of the year.

13: You've tried to hang off a clothes line while pretending you can
fly.

14: You've had to visit the emergency room after hanging off the clothes
line pretending you can fly.

15: You own a pair of thongs for every day use and a pair of "dress
thongs" for special occassions.

16: You don't know what's in a meat pie and you don't care.

24: Your weekends are spent barracking for your favourite sports team.

25: You have a toilet dolly (a (usually crocheted) doll with a victorian hoop skirt that is hollow and goes over the toilet brush. Hangs down to the floor so you can't tell you have a toilet brush).

26: You've played beach cricket with a ball and bat fashioned out of a
fence post.

27: You firmly believe in the end, everything will be ok and have told a
friend in tough times that "She'll be right, mate".

28: You use the phrase "no worries" at least once a day.

29: You've been on a beach holiday and have probably stayed in a
caravan.

30: You constantly shorten words to "brekkie", "arvo" and "barbie".

31: You've adopted a local bar as your own.

Hehe. Some good stuff there, but gutted the Galah wasn't included.
I thought having one of those hit your UHT was customary? :p

:eek: 25: You have a toilet dolly. *shudders* I don't really wanna ask,
but, well I can't help myself.
WTF is one of those?
