I find it absolutely amazing that some people have absolutely no idea what or where Australia is. With some people, you could tell them almost anything, no matter how far fetched it is, and they´d beleive you. Around the time of the olympics, a travel agent published, on their website (or maybe it was SOCOG, I can´t remember) a list of ridiculous questions (well, ridiculous to Australians) about Australia. One of my favourites was:
Q. Can I catch a plane to Perth and then walk to Sydney, following the railway line?
A. Yes, if you had started about six months ago
Lou, is it possible YOU sent me those bouncy sheep!? The ones that bounced accross the computer screen? I had some awhile ago, but could never remember who sent them to me...
