talkin to an american dude this week, he expected me, as an aussie, to be in love with tennis. i'm not. neither am i blonde, or tanned or a surfer ( i do like the beach ) i dont follow any variety of football and i dont usually care about cricket tho i have been known to get involved in a very close game. also anti-aussie is my interest in the arts and then there is my dogged exploration of faith in a hugely secular society. i talk like an aussie, i can be well spoken australian or grossly vernacular, in the right situation i can even morph into the australian version of trailer trash. unfortunately here in the wide brown land we dont have such a wonderfully evocative name for our lowest common denominator.... what stereotypes do you associate with terra australis?
