Happy New Year: Australiana

Happy New Year to one and all!

Now this is going to be a bit different from my usual blog entries... But as a writer, I love words. Big words, little words, serious words and funny words. I also love it when you can twist words. So here's a little video I'd like to share with you, filled to the brim with Aussie humour... Keep an eye on the pictures, they might help you out a bit.


Is it scary to all of you non-Australian people that I understood the majority of what just happened? Fair dinkum, I understood a lot of that.

Happy 2013 from Australia.
- Bonnee.

  5. Loved it. So funny. I've been to Australia and had very close Aussie friends while I taught in Indoneisa. So yeah, got most of that.

    2. nice resolutions, i dont really have any certain ones ;) but basically mine are the same as yours, just not the uni bit. anyway my main one is to finish writing 'anywhere but here' the story im currently working on. :D but im not usually very good at sticking with resolutions so hahaha :D

    3. Haha well if it makes you feel any better, most people aren't, especially with the normal resolutions like 'lose weight' and 'be more social and less addicted to facebook'. Good luck finishing 'Anywhere but Here' :) It's definitely an achievable goal.

  7. He has a distintive accent and slang and the audience is roaring with laugther, but I didn't understand what was going on. I guess you need to live in Australia to appreciate it. Maybe if I can read the script of what he's saying, I can get some of the jokes. But it's always nice to have something Aussie here. Happy new Year !

    1. I had a feeling a lot of people wouldn't get it, but that's why I wanted to share. You'd definitely have to live here to get a lot of the jokes. Happy New Year, Giora!

  8. I seriously need to go to Australia one of these years. One of my cousins live there. That's an incentive, right?

    Have an amazing new year, Bonnee! :)
