What are a few things you wish non-Australian people knew about Australia? — Anonymous
I’ve been thinking about this ask for a while and here’s what I’ve come up with;
Australia is pronounced “uh-STRAY-lee-ah” rather than “AWW-stray-lee-ah”
Melbourne is pronounced “MEL-bin”, not “mel-BORN”
Brisbane is “BRIS-bin”, not “BRIS-bay-n”
Canberra is “CAN-brah”, not “can-BER-rah”
"Yeah nah" means no
"Nah yeah" means yes
"Fanny" means vagina, not butt
No-one under the age of 60 actually says “G’day mate”
Pies are full of meat
This is fairy bread and everyone should experience it’s magic at children’s birthday parties
These are thongs
These are biscuits
Male kangaroos obviously don’t have pouches because males DON’T HAVE BABIES
Kangaroos don’t just hang around people’s houses they’re wild anim- Oh wait this is my driveway;
you people are a circus
Last time I was here it was with you.
Okay so I’m really fucking pissed right now, and here’s why.
I’m having a stressful, horrible day at uni. I’m dressed in a way that makes me feel good, because god damn do I need a little light in my day today. So yeah, I’m wearing a skirt, in case anyone wants to know. A skirt, stockings, shirt, ankle boots. I’m dressed for a warm day at uni.
I went over to my usual coffee haunt to get myself some fuel for the day and this guy walks over and stands behind me. I glance in the reflection of the fridge in case it’s someone I know, someone I want to say hi to.
This is a man I’ve never seen before in my life and he’s openly staring at my ass. Not just glancing, like, full on head tilt STARING at it. And then looks back up, looks around, STARES again.
Understandably, that makes me a little uncomfortable. Well, a lot uncomfortable actually. But when he does it for a third time? Oh I’m pissed now. Luckily, my coffee arrives and I leave the staring jerk where he stands but I was so close to turning around and asking him just what the fuck he thought he was staring at, and/or slapping him.
And then this.
TAKE IT AS A COMPLIMENT?!
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME.
SOMEONE IS RUDE ENOUGH TO STARE AT ME IN A WAY THAT MAKES ME FEEL SEVERELY UNCOMFORTABLE AS THOUGH IT’S HIS RIGHT TO JUST FUCKING OBJECTIFY AND STARE AT A WOMAN LIKE THAT OR AT ANYONE’S BODY LIKE THAT AND I SHOULD TAKE THAT AS A MOTHERFUCKING COMPLIMENT?!
I DON’T FUCKING THINK SO.
I’VE ‘TAKEN IT AS A COMPLIMENT’ BEFORE AND DO YOU FUCKING KNOW WHAT THAT GOT ME? THAT GOT ME TO A POINT WHERE MEN DECIDED THAT AS A WOMAN I WASN’T GOING TO STAND UP FOR MYSELF AND THAT LEFT ME AS THE VICTIM OF SEXUAL ASSAULT BECAUSE I TOOK IT AS A COMPLIMENT THAT SOMEONE FOUND ME ATTRACTIVE.
SO NO FUCKING WAY SONNY JIM AM I TAKING IT AS A COMPLIMENT
HOW ABOUT I FUCKING STARE AT YOUR DICK NEXT TIME I’M WONDERING HOW IT MANAGES TO SIMULTANEOUSLY BE IN YOUR PANTS AND ON DISPLAY ON YOUR FOREHEAD, ASSHOLE.
I MEAN JESUS FUCKING CHRIST
IF SOMEONE DID THAT TO A GUY, THEY’D GET SO UNCOMFORTABLE ABOUT IT BUT WHEN I VOICE MY OWN DISCOMFORT CLEARLY THE COMPLIMENT OF A MAN STARING AT MY BODY OUTWEIGHS THE TRULY SCARY THOUGHT OF WHAT THAT COULD MEAN OR MY OWN RIGHT TO FEEL SECURE AND COMFORTABLE WHEN I’M JUST BUYING A GODDAMN COFFEE
AND YOU CAN BET YOUR SWEET ASS IF I SAID ANY OF THIS ON MY STATUS, I’D GET ACCUSED OF OVERREACTING, BEING A FEMI-NAZI, NEEDING TO RELAX.
AND FUCK TAKING IT AS A COMPLIMENT
I’M TAKING IT AS A SIGN THAT SOCIETY STILL DOESN’T HAVE THE RESPECT FOR WOMEN THAT IT REALLY SHOULD
I just spent like 30 seconds straight trying to understand what was so special about “The unthe unthe uthe unhe un”
“The unthe unthe uthe unhe un”
It’s special because you shouldn’t drop it.
JADE: SHAKE YOUR GROOVE THING
well this finally got done, the anticipated sequel to Davestep! Thanks to all you happenin’ cats that stuck around for last night’s stream as I struggled to finish this.
If you’re looking for a good song to watch her dance to, might I suggest Lyre Le Temps - Lady Swing?
I was listening to this when the gif popped up on my dash and it goes freakishly well.
So I’m listening to Sulk by Radiohead, and I swore for a second the lyrics were 'Sometimes you salt, and sometimes you burn' and now all I can see in my head is Dean Winchester singing the wrong words in the impala to annoy Sammy, and Sammy eventually going along with it. And then every time they hear it, they always sing it as salt, and they laugh together about it like the dorky brothers they are.
TELL ME AN INTERESTING FACT ABOUT YOURSELF AND I WILL REPLY WITH AN INTERESTING FACT ABOUT MYSELF THAT I THINK OF WHEN I READ YOURS. IT MAY BE ENTIRELY RELATED, OR ONLY RELATED IN THE WEIRDEST, BROADEST DEFINITIONS.

Wait are you kidding, the light colours are literally the inversion of the breath colours?
YOU HAVE GOT TO BE FUCKING KIDDING ME.
It took me a week to write and perfect the pitch for a script I loved and you rejected on the basis of you didn’t like the script.
And now you want TWO FULL LENGTH PITCHES for two plays I’m not really that fond of but you think are great and you want them by ONE PM TOMORROW.
I may be metal as fuck, but I still need cuddles.

Take note: Different forms of intimacy.
I would feel so bad washing this off, holy shit
You could take a bath afterward with the artist and they can wash it off for you so you don’t feel responsible for their work. But also, it could teach the same kind of patience and concept that nothing lasts forever, similarly to the Tibetan Buddhist sand mandala tradition. And it could be just another step in your process of intimacy. Just a thought.
I want to paint on someone holy shit.
Babe: You’re obligated to do this now.
man, would love to have the type of friendship with people where we could all sit around topless, babes and dudes, and just paint on each other, and drink a little and laugh a lot
bolding last comment since not everything that looks intimate doesn’t really have to be
I think this is one of those times where it might be awesome to differentiate between “intimate” and “erotic”?
It can be totally intimate and still completely platonic. Human realtionships can be wonderful like that.
