GPP Network Street Team

Check out Michelle Ward's - Green Pepper Press - Street Team. Michelle has had a number of Crusades and Crusade #7 - Say What? is for people to journal (or blog) sayings .... so here is one that I had to use at some stage on a trip to the US which really made everyone laugh... and I know that it is being used by quite a few people.
  • Chuck a wobbly .... which basically is Aussie for throwing a tantrum.
  • We say alumin-i-um whereas you gals/guys in the US say aluminum.
  • The trunk of your car is referred to as the "boot" downunder.

I am sure that there are many others... will just have to think of them! Michelle....???

Hi Janine, We use the same words in England! Great that you speak "proper" English in Oz! lol Sue (Lanky lass)

Hi Sue

Probably has something to do with the fact that my grandparents are British... so I had no choice! lol

Well we'd throw a wobbly rather than chuck it, but still. Fun to read some Australian.

Sounds really funny. ;)

Great you have a blog now.

We throw a hissy rather than chuck a wobbly, but I think your way of saying it is cuter.
