Well, I laughed my way through Bushbabe's post about Vegemite this morning. Laughed my hind end off. Someday, I'll give that Vegemite a little try. Over at her sister's blog, Jeanie was talking about the great Tim Tam dilemna/dilemma. I had to google Tim Tam right away, and they do look like tasty little things (unlike vegemite...sorry BB, but it's the truth...). I was a bit mystified as to why any person would stop to quibble about spelling in the face of FREE COOKIES FOR A YEAR! Jeanie informed me that they were NOT cookies, they were biccies. (what the heck is a biccie...)
The two of them...it's like they live in a foreign country or something, the rosy cheeked little Tim Tam eating vegemites.
To my American ears, that sounds quite like a dandy little epithet...
