So just yesterday I discovered that corn meal is actually called polenta in Australia – nearly 7 years after moving here. Oh and by the way cilantro is called coriander here – that one only took me 6 months to figure out, cause you know, there isn’t something at my fingertips in which I can type in “Cilantro in Australia?” and then get my answer almost instantaneously…

So today is the 4th of July in Australia which means nothing to Australians. Tomorrow when it’s the 4th of July in America, everyone will be celebrating America’s Independence and I really hope they know what they’re celebrating and that the people in this video were just the minority.

Interesting read. I’ve noticed most of these things, however, I’ve also noticed people take undrunk wine or uneaten food that they have brought to a party back home with them. If I bring it to a party, I leave it for the host to enjoy or give away or toss out, if necessary. But I have seen many, many people take the leftovers back which I have always found strange. Also, as for “taking the piss” I haven’t seen people get offended over jokes whether or not the person or persons in question were there – particularly if it’s at the Irish or the Dutch expense.

I agree with only a couple of these but not all. If we were to adopt all of these then Australia would stop being Australia and just become America. However, #1 and #2 are definitely needed! A couple of the others would be awesome but that’s about it.

I wonder what Aussie states would be thankful for?
