    OMG you really did just post that! LMAO!

    Yes, I will need advice about this though. I am from the frozen beer tundra known as Wisconsin... the hottest it gets in Milwaukee in summer generally is in the low 90's F (like 32C or a tad warmer). Yes, I know...that's it. But to us it's really roasting at that temp! So I think come summer...I will fry... :bugeyed

    Well for starters.. does your house have aircon? Because if it doesn't.. :bugeyed

    The summers are getting hotter and hotter, so this year's just gonna be ugghhh

    I lived in Mt Isa for 3 months..and god, walking out of an aircon building there was like standing in front of a car exhaust.

    Awesome thread! and yeah there's a famous camel ride touristy thing over in Western Australia up in Broome.

    oh and reg you're reaaalllly gonna feel the summer heat :lol: hot days are good for getting some mates over for a barbie and crackin out a few stubbies and stickin your feet in the esky :lol: especially if you've had a few too many chardies. :drunk:

    Speaking of iconic aussie stuff... I'm going on a 14 day trip up the spine of our little island in Sept. We're starting in Melb and busin our way up to Adelaide then to Coober Pedy to stay underground one night and check out the Opal mines, then we'll be heading up to Uluru to see the big rock and Kings Canyon and then crossing over to the Alice. Then we'll be going right up to Tennett creek and the devil's marbles and from there we'll go to Katherine and Kakadu before finishing in Darwin I just can't wait!!!


    So which state/ city are our aussies mates here from?

    Okay you all are totally freaking me out about summer.... :bugeyed

    Well... the people I'm staying with don't turn the air on until it's like 100F (37C)... Which means I'm GONNA ROAST. I have very long and thick hair...I may have to cut it to make it a little cooler on me (i'm going to seriously cry though). Yep, I'm living with pissheads so there will be plenty of beer and barbies going on. They have a pool...thank god...but have been telling me horror stories about how it gets to hot to even swim. :mello:

    I'm getting my digs in while I can...teasing them about how it's not that cold right now. I still go for walks outside in t-shirts when it's like 10-12C out...just because it freaks them out LOL. (and because winter where I come from can be easily -6F (-21C). Come summer I'm going to get so much crap... must tease them while I still can....

    You all have like 50 spf sunscreen here yeah? Because I'm also midwestern pale with freckles....and I don't really tan. Ever.

    It feels like that cozzie? *cries*

    LJ, your trip sounds really fab. Take tons of pics!

    I'm in the Campbelltown/Bradbury area here, in NSW.

    oh yeah if it gets super hot the pool doesn't really do well with coolin you down... especially if it's not shaded either.
    If you're lucky the people you're living with will know how to keep their house coolish.

    I don't use the aircon until it's predicted to be a scorcher (sorta like the 37C scenario)... and my mum can't handle the heat so we do things like cover the house windows to trap cold air in and hot air out. Appliances like the tellie and other heat producing stuff aren't allowed to go on until the cool change hits.... so those days if I want to go online I gotta charge the laptop and take it outside into the shade and use the wireless :lol:

    Definately Slip, Slop, Slap we're right under the hole in the ozone :lol: so we burn easily.


    I walk around in t-shirts all winter too :lol: I don't feel the cold so it's a great laugh watching everyone else stare LOL!

    Damn.. I grew up in NZ and I used to be one of those "quit being a wuss, it's not cold!" people. Oh how things change. Now I have europeans come and tease me about feeling cold.

    Reghead, yep it feels like that on the really hot days. Make sure you stock up on sunscreen, chapstick and zinc (skin coloured, for the love of god :P) because if you don't tan then you're going to get RED!

    Ohhhh L.J I'm jealous. JEALOUS! I really wanna check out uluru and all these places you're going. Are you climbing up uluru?

    And I'm in Geelong.. we have creepy statues on our beaches

    aawww the bollard people :lol: ... check out the tits on that one nearest the camera.. :ermm: :lol:

    I wont be climbing Uluru no the local aboriginal groups have requested that the area remain sacred and treated as such and they're not too keen on folks climbing the rock so I'm going to respect their wishes in regards to that.

    We came to Geelong for our snorkelling day trip this year... took 75 students to the safety beach in the background of that photo you posted cozzie and snorkelled around under the walkway before leaping over to the otherside and snorkelling around back to shore. Kids had a blast. Also did a 3 day trip over to Sorrento and Pt Nepean with snorkelling and moutain bike riding ^_^ (oh yeah... I love my job ).

    So snaps of Pt Nepean (one side of the small entrance into Port Phillip bay (with Melbourne being the main port of call in the bay).


    Remains of an old cattle jetty which was used by the old Quarantine that existed at Point Nepean..... oh yeah our beaches are beautiful ^_^


    An Echidna! love these little guys ^_^


    Went out into the bay to Chinamen's Hut and went swimming with the seals... a totally awesome experience

    Thanks Sharlene. Yeah, I will probably attempt to put it into buns, braids or ponytails and see how it goes.
    It's over 1/2 of the way down my back so it can be a pain but it is really nice and I don't want to chop it unless I'm really miserable.
    I wonder if my blonde will be super beach blonde by December...

    Hey speaking of December.... Christmas is going to be ODD for me! No snow? no sleds? no snowmen? Can you still run around in a santa hat? Or would that be weird?

    PS: since this is the Aussie thread....anyone try the "new' vegemite yet? Anyone else even LIKE the regular? All my friends thought I'd hate it but I LOVE IT. The new one isn't bad either...but I prefer the original because it's saltier.

    LOL yeah definately getting on the air con bandwagon. My friends don't turn it on until it's like 37C... I'm going to have an problem with that! I told them to expect to see me dragging my own window air conditioner down the driveway and into the house! :bugeyed

    Oh yeah beach for sure. I've been running around Bondi..Bronte..Tamarama...

    Actually I'll tell you... I landed at Sydney International on May 1st, went through customs, got my bags, met my friends, got in the car - and went directly to Bondi, no stopping on the way! I just couldn't help myself...

    It's beautiful, smells so oceany, all the sounds of the surf and I discovered they also have hot lifeguards

    You all should come up to Bondi in summer...how fun would that be, a bunch of MJJC members running around in the sand

    A lot of fans from Australia seem to be from the Melbourne area...maybe I should think of this in reverse? Come summer, maybe I should jump on a train...if one goes all the way there. Any good beaches in the Melbourne area?
