This will be interesting to see an update once the Aussies have settled in. I would say there are no differences apart from the accent. All of the people I have met from overseas are the same, rock and roll is universal. m/

i worked with some Australian guys while setting up a Muse concert in Toronto a while ago. One of the guys was my supervisor for the day, he was traveling with the band. He was fine. I'm an older guy, and after installing about 50 75lb lights onto trusses, he could see that I was getting tired. So he asked me if I wanted to take a break and then to go work somewhere else where there wasn't so much heavy lifting. I did. So that was very empathetic of the guy even though he would never see me again after that day.

Australia is the absolute coolest place I think I've ever worked (and that's out of a LOT of places too)! Seriously. The people are awesome and the culture is like walking back into the mid-1950's (in a good way). (actually have a really funny story about this too).

Oh, and the phone numbers are 8 digits which is kind of a hoot. ####-####. Takes a while to get used to it, especially trying to remember someone's number when you have the 7 digit thing on the brain.

I would live in Australia in a NY second if I could figure out a way to. They have pretty tough emigration laws.

Welcome!
You are Loved!!
Funny, no matter what 'path' you are from/on, what 'religion', all (mystical branches) recognize where all 'paths' intersect, the 'chrono-synclastic infundibulum' of unconditional Love/Enlightenment!
Love makes Us One! *__-

a reply to: weirdguy Today was their first day. Excuse the all caps, but IT WAS SO MUCH FUN. They were completely relaxed, not pretentious. I was talking to this hilarious woman who turned out to be the big boss. And, they threw a dinner reception with an open bar. What a happy go lucky group. Australia, you should be proud.

...pretty much our 'Western Island' of New Zealand - otherwise known as Australia - to a tee...



...other things to remember are:

1. If an Aussie tells you to wear thongs to the beach...be sure you know the lingo...

2. If you're ever facing the final ball, last over, in a cricket match...make sure that Aussie bowler's surname isn't Chappell...YYYYOOOOUUUUU BAAAAASSSSSSTTTTTIIIDDDDDSSSS!!!!!

3. "Yeah nah" and "Nah yeah" are completely acceptable responses within any form of conversational setting...be aware though that while those two responses are interchangeable, the specific intended meaning comprises a potential 107,245,647,389 wholly different meanings..


Other than that...enjoy the Western Island...and if you get sick of it, come on over to the North or South Island of New Zealand for a visit...not that you'll notice much difference if you were living in Brissie, Gold Coast or Melbourne...half the cuzzie bros live there already anyway...

Cheers,

YEAH NAH, NAH YEAH, Gotta love the kiwi cuz's. And you're right, there's a lot that will kill you in Aust. There's nothing to hurt you in Kiwi land but watch out for the silver ferns and the snowflakes in the 'high' country.

Wear gumboots to 'kitch the sheps brus'. And be prepared when fishing to "kitch whit bats" A 'Yugge' deadly fish which you fry up in the "Freepen brus".

When skiing people may die from "Everlunches" caused by snowflakes.

Love ya bRUS,

Kind regards,

bally
