Ok, im bored and had an idea. How about we post a favorite "quote" of the day...... Preferably from our own minds (no quoting Mark Twain, or something of that nature) ...... I say this for a reason, and this is it (for the ones that are curious). I believe that putting our own selfs in juxtapositioning environments (by posting our own little quotes and catch phrases, maybe), we can learn about each other AND about ourselves. And maybe learn FROM each other as well? Hell, just a thought :thumbsup:

Aw, DSTM, I don't get it. Is that one of your crazy rhyming or word replacement puns? Now I'll to have to find some old pages I used to frequent that had lists of Ozzy slang.

Who cares if we're stuck for a few hours in the airport -- we're in China, for heaven's sake!

These are sayings which us Ozzies come across almost daily.I have English friends who Pm me and Email me and some of their everyday one liners,I haven't the faintest what they mean.Allways asking,what do you mean when you said such and such just then. All a foreign language to me.LOL.Maybe it would help if members quote one liners,which are common in their part of the world,to give an explanation. :thumbsup:

I spent 5 of the happiest weeks of my life exploring Oz about 20 years ago and learned a bit about how fun-loving you all are. But I was definitely confused by the wordplay. :thumbsup:

Maybe it would help if members quote one liners,which are common in their part of the world,to give an explanation. :trumpet:

That sounds like fun, but of course nothing comes to mind at the moment. :flowers:

LOL true. I spent my only visit to Japan on Tokyo airport for 8 hrs walking back and forth and spending my pocket money on japanese food stuffs I kept having to try out lol. I do think they ripped me off coz I paid with USDs (didnt find an exchange office) lol. Hope I ll make it there again, working for a japanese comp these days ^^.

Maybe it would help if members quote one liners,which are common in their part of the world,to give an explanation.

Can you elaborate what exactly you mean with that?

I got a farewell book from my ozzie friends with tidbits of Australia ^^. Lets see:

"Whether its the opening of the Parliament or the launch of a new art gallery, there is no Australian event that cannot be improved by a sausage sizzle".

From the "Basic guide to Aussie life for Johannes" from my friends :thumbsup:

lol that reminds me of the douglas advertisement: "come in and find out" - elderly people seem to have translated it into "find your way in and find your way out" (atleast thats how i recall having read it in the news or something). I have to chuckle when I see a Douglas ad most of the time these days lol.

Like the guy that wanted me to fix (in the store) his problem at home. He could no longer connect wirelessly - and he didn't have a cable connection nor a wireless router. And he still wanted me to fix it - even after I told him that he was leeching off his neighbor!

I concocted acronym an number of years ago. It is pronounceable.

WITOIDRICSAS!

"When In Trouble Or In Doubt Run In Circles, Scream And Shout"

The story of how this acronym came about is too long and boring.
Suffice to say, I used to holler it out when a crew working for me became too edgy and needed a recall to reality.
The only easy day was yesterday.
