Rikki makes annoying ads and likes hilarious things.
She hates people who believe in star signs because a
tarot card reader once told her she was pregnant.

Gimme Your Stuff.™

Everyone go make friends with a Texan IMMEDIATELY!

A new friend of ours from texas requested we send her a tin of Aussie Milo, and in exchange, she'll send some tex-mex for our enjoyment. (She didn't say she was going to send 15 kilos of tex-mex, but that's another story).

When we received our much awaited package, it was like all our non-religious specific holiday celebrations had come at once. We wondered how we could share this joy with the world...

So, in conjunction with Thomp, and Lori Witzel I'd like to introduce... Gimme Your Stuff.™ A cultural exchange blog. A conduit for many an international cuisine can change hands. A place where you can trade a newspaper from South Africa, or a CD from Finland. A place where Thom and I take no responsibility for anything anyone else does. A place where we are Changing the world with other people's stuff.

PS. I have plentiful aussie foodstuffs for the swapping! Milo, Vegemite and Anzac Bikkies all round... plus TimTams, the king of all aussie foods - trust me people, you want these!!!

Transplant Recipient Tragedy

The anti-rejection drugs didn't work.
He was struck down at the height of his fame. At the pinnacle of his achievement. In the apple of his... youth.

I've Done It!

It's official. I've performed the first complete Gummybear face transplant. It was a close call, but everyone's doing well.

Milo the Bush Kangaroo

I was in the kitchen at work and thought I'd put together a photo-essay on Milo for my American pals. It's not so much a 'photo-essay' as a 'photo' really, but it endeavours to show the story of Milo anyhow.

I've included both full cream milk and it's fat-reduced brethren so you don't get confused and think you can only use the one variety... Plus I have included the milo in three states; tinned (as it's found in the wild), powdered all over the floor and dissolved in a delicious drink. I've neglected to depict the Milo in other states (cold, sprinkled on icecream, etc) but I have a job, people.

You may have noticed the light emanating from behind the Milo. This is to illustrate how the Milo goes 'laaaaa' like the sun rising over the mountains.

Ps. See how yummy our milk is? In the most unoffensive way possible, your US of A milk is not fit to be in the presence of our delicious Milo. It tastes like powdery water. When I was there I was afraid to put it on my morning bowl of sugar lollies.
I mean Cereal.
