    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

    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.
