    I am from Western Australia (the massive state that takes up a third of the country). I will happily answer any questions about Australia and WA.

    Aww, HP on Harry's birthday. That's so sweet! Were you reading an actual British version to them? And 'keen'! I never really thought about that one but I suppose people do say it a lot here. That and "brilliant", I think. I particularly like the rude differences between us! Here, a rubber and a fag have no sexual connotations at all. On the other hand, I always laugh when Berries describe something as 'spunky'. The BE meaning is quite vulgar

    ETA:
    @Lauren: Canada is interesting! As is Oz. And NZ & Ireland to an extent. I can usually tell if someone is from the US from the words they use and the way the spell in their posts, but Canadians and Aussies are harder. Some use all AE spellings but some use a mixture of AE and BE. I find words like 'mum' and 'nappy' are still used there, and also the 'our' words like favour and colour, but they'll still use the 'z' in words like analyse/analyze, and use other AE words like 'apartment' and 'sidewalk'!

    I'm from Canberra, the capital of Australia. Although I did live in the Northern Territory for a good portion of my life as well. Feel free to ask any questions as well.

    Australian berries: just curious, have you heard of the Australian band The Seekers (lead singer Judith Durham)? My favourite band ever... I know they were a huge deal in the '60s, wondering if younger people in Australia generally know who they are.
    ~Love names, literature, royals and horses~ <3

    Favourite names:
    Girls: Azalea, Cordelia, Elizabeth, Rosalind, Portia, Victoria, Diana, Felicity, Juliet, Scarlett
    Boys: Fitzwilliam, Sebastian, Percival, Prospero, Orlando, Darcy... don't love many boys' names!
