G'Day From DownUnder!

Hi everyone my name is Kim and I am from Sydney Australia,

I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of my Sony Reader PRS-505 on its way from the US. This is a really great forum and I am sure that I am going to learn a lot from here.

Kim

Hi Kim and welcome to the Forum. I got a 505 a year ago and like it a lot. Prepare to get addicted.

Look at moy, Kimmey, look at moy. I've got two words to say to you, Kimmey: senile dementia

Grandma's not kept up her anti-"You damned kids get off my lawn!" medication, and what with that desert sun baking her brain every day...well, let's just say she probably just needs a Bex and a good lie down, hey?

The monkeys are perfectly safe to interract with. In fact, they're delightfuly company, very gracious hosts, always only too happy to provide.

Can I get you a drink?

Cheers,
Marc (or possibly Adrian...either way, one Zany Carter Deluxe coming right up)

If this is your first ZC, only say yes if you're sitting down very securely.

And welcome, by the way!

Nooooooo.............(now where DID I put that stick?? rummages in closet, flinging assorted pantaloons and ugly boots over shoulder)

I told you Kimmy, the monkeys are bad news, very bad news. I am most certainly NOT seminole, uh, senile, and I don't even know what a "Bex" is.......and I dont 'lay down' much because I have this great fear of not waking up.......but thats another story for another thread.

I"m warning you........if you take that drink, not only will you wake up with the monkeys, but there will be assorted llamas, squirrels, a VERY naughty dog, (or three) a penguin and even a very large, strangely attractive..... chicken standing by your bed with expectant looks on their faces......you've been warned.

...and by "securely", I believe Am means "immobilised by unbreakable restraints".

...oh, and as Am reminds me, welcome (from an only-recently ex-Sydneysider).

It's a funny coincidence, but I've always pictured you in pantaloons and ugly boots.

There's also possibly a down side, though I've yet to discover it.

Ahh, yes, the pipe. I forgot to mention that part of the picture. The funny thing about the above is that, for all her warnings about "drinking the Kool-Aid", desertgrandma seems blissfully unaware that she's part of her forewarned results (see her avatar) rather than part of the temperance movement she believes. That is, if you can see her, you're already here.

Welcome, and welcome. Would you like another?

Cheers,
Marc-Adrian [insert evil and slightly monkey-insane laughter]

Of course I wouldn't. You show me one, and I promise not to do that to her.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcomes, and I assure you I was sitting down and strapped in when I had my ZC lol.

A little about myself. I am a mum of four - 13,10,9,& 20months - 2 girls and two boys. I have a very hectic life but do manage to fit in a few things that I like to do, reading for one and scrapbooking as well.

I hope to get to know you all in the coming weeks and months and its nice to see there are quite a few of us Aussies on here.
