1. If you were a mythical creature, which creature would you be? - a cross between Pegasus and a unicorn.
2. Has the Great Australian Novel been written yet or not? If so, what is it? - no idea but it's not half the stuff I had to plough through at school.
3. Feelings on peanut butter ...no sugar, no salt, crunchy is best
4. The best way to rid the kitchen of a cockroach is ...hit with thong / other blunt instrument you can leave outside for the rain to wash clean or bug spray if nothing else to hand; if not too squished, sweep up with dustpan and brush and deposit in bin, otherwise sweep up what you can and use kitchen paper / tissue for the rest.
5. You know I'm Australian by my ... use of "G'day" (as I discovered in Germany, yes, we really do say it); "yeah, no" and craving for Vegemite if I've been OS without it (can I take it to NZ / get it there while on holidays?).

1. a grumpy one!! Probably a dragon.
2. No, not yet.
3. love it - crunchy or smooth, but we don't have it in our house anymore so that we can welcome all children over without worrying about nut allergies. Noone in our household is allergic to peanuts, but for the sake of others we forgo.
4. get the house fumigated regularly.
5. You know I'm an Aussie by my love of Sydney beaches.

3. people live without it?! best with chocolate ... and ice cream ... :) (pb&j actually overrated ...)

4. get a boy to do it for you

5. american ... accent? sense of humor? wish for everything to have a happy ending?

Crazyjedidiah said...

Kim, I think that Possum magic while an excellent book is not a novel but a picture book so cannot be declared the great australian novel.
