I fell in 사랑 in a Macca's parking lot
Sat on the curb eating vegemite sangas and pavlova
We talked about the Emu war and how it's too darn hot (whoa oh oh oh)

I told my mum that i'm gonna go swimming
And I'll need three litres of sunscreen to keep me safe
But if it's jellyfish season then i'll need to stay inside (whoa oh oh oh)

I'm always 'slip slop slapping' (yeah,yeah)
I'm always up for a barbie' (yeah,yeah)
No I don't listen to abbott (yeah,yeah)
And I'll never like julia either

I am Australian girl
wishing, praying it'll be colder
I'm wearing shorts, singlets and thongs
Sweating, crying, all australian girls (Whoa oh oh oh )
I was raised 의해 the 악어 hunter
Every 일 is 50 degrees
Let's kick abbott out of parliament (Oh-way-oh)

I wanna see all the 영화 on netflix and try starbucks
But then i realise i live in the outback on a cattle farm

THIS IS VERY URGENT AND NOT A JOKE! ALSO DON'T GOOF OFF!!!!

I really mean it! What would 당신 be able to do if SOPA/TPP censors the internet? What would 당신 be able to do if 글쓰기 fanfics and drawing fanarts become illegal? What would 당신 do if it's illegal to do a cover of your 가장 좋아하는 song on YouTube? What would 당신 do if downloading things from the internet (music, movies, TV episodes, etc) became illegal? What would 당신 do if SOPA/TPP wins the war and takes away internet freedom? Net Neutrality is already dead so far, we can't risk the freedom of internet from getting killed 의해 SOPA/TPP!


SOPA may have been stopped, but large companies with many copyrights are trying to re-institute portions of it under other names and policies. This attempt to protected speech in the name of copyright is unacceptable, and must be resisted.

Firemen trying to control the Victorian bushfires this weekend
I woke up this evening around eight o'clock -feeling tired and irritated. Due to the extensive heatwave that has swept through most of the country this weekend, I had been unable to sleep for nearly two days. I live in the outer suburbs of Sydney (away from the coastline) and the temperatures reached as high as 46 degrees celcius today. I'm a person that prefers the summertime to winter as I tolerate the heat much better than the cold but these high temperatures were just too much to deal with.
I turned on the radio and the first news item was about the out-of-control bushfires in the state of Victoria.I realized as I listened to the broadcast just how lucky I am though. As much as I have complained and been grumpy all weekend over the heat (as many have I'm sure) I am 더 많이 fortunate than some.
Many towns in Victoria, just north-west of the city of Melbourne,have been completely ruined 의해 the bushfires. The state's Premier John Brumby as described the effect of today's bushfires as "the worst 일 in our history."

So recently, a fellow fanpopper Snerkie 게시됨 a soapbox 기사 entitled “Sydney = Overrated”. If 당신 haven’t read that article, 당신 may have to in order to get what I’m saying. To start, My name is Ali, I’m 17 and I live in Sydney.

Second, I want to pick a little bone with Snerkie.
당신 say Sydney is Un-Australian. Um... isn't that is what is so great about Australia? That that we are so MULTICULTURAL. Now 당신 say 당신 are not racist, but seriously, everyone has a right to live in Australia (given they're not terrorists, murderers 또는 dangerous) and that fact that 당신 put Un-Australian in bold worries me.

No Sydney is not great. When I was 12 my family moved from Melbourne to Sydney. I remember being so overwhelmed 의해 the enormity of it all, I kept comparing it to Melbourne. Melbourne had trams and was easier to get around, Sydney didn’t. Melbourne had all my friends, Sydney didn’t. Melbourne was Melbourne and Sydney wasn’t. But then as I realized I was going to be in Sydney for awhile, so I sucked it up. I discovered buses and I got new and in some cases better friends.

Okay, the 제목 may "shock" some people but I will explain the whole thing...

Hello, I am Krystal, 18, and I live in Adelaide, South Australia. I've been to Queensland in 99/00 (forgot), Sydney in 01/02 (forgot), and Melbourne in 04. I recently went to Sydney again to go see the wrestling. 당신 see on TV and everything they say how beautiful Sydney is and it's like the 심장 of Australia...I saw differently though. Here are a few things.

Dirty
My first 일 there I got sick, terrible headache that shot my head and a very sore tummy. I had been walking around the streets looking at shops. So many people around, so many homeless people sitting on the streets very close to people (will bring this up later) and smoking...every one was smoking. Sydney turned into "Cancer City" for me, everyone to light up a fag whenever they could, was extremely terrible to walk through.

Fear
Adelaide has been seen as the murder capital of the world, I have never had a fear to hold my bag tightly though. All the other places I never had that fear till this trip to Sydney. Not saying all homeless people are pick pocketers but...
