I had my first piece of Vegemite toast today as an Aussie, and I think I can say I actually liked it! I ate the whole thing anyway. (The rumors about its efficacy as a hangover treatment seem to be true as far as I can tell.) I also made my first official trip to the Sydney Fish Market to get the prawns yesterday. I'd managed to avoid it for five years, but I figured it was finally time to take the next step. It was smelly, but I survived. Lastly, I played a demo version of Lego: Star Wars and I think I might be hooked on a video game for the first time in years. It was a good weekend for Firsts!

You are such an Aussie!

I myself have grown up here and only in later years mastered the art of enjoying vegemite.

Oh my gosh, beware of L:SW. It is taking over my life like no other game has since Tetris or maybe Myst.

Heh. I saw that on your site! I'm just incredibly frustrated right now, because all the bloody Apple stores in Sydney are closed down for the public holiday, SO I CAN'T BUY IT. And it's pissing me off!
