So, I got home from the neurologist just now (that's another story), and found in my mailbox a big tube from Australia!

What's this? I wondered.

No return address. Chose not to look at the customs label because what fun's that?.

Knifed it open to find a taped up tin of Hobgolblin Ale's shirt and bottle.

Nope. Doubt it's that. Hmm. It's rattling. That can't be good. I smell chocolate.


Knifed 'round the top and immediately started prying off the lid. Wait. Damn, no camera... Wait! Should I rush into this?

Off comes the lid and out spills:

$880 Australian play dollars, paper
numerous ants and flies, plastic
2 cute dragons or crocodiles (I guess), plastic
attempted or aborted origami square something, paper
one very smelly package of chocolate covered liquorice. Possibly melted, so in the Fridge for now
one tube of Vegemite
and one bubble wrapped bottle of...

Knife up and down and the second layer to reveal...

Edit: Thanks for the single black hair. I'll get the DNA testing started soon. But before I touch it, is it a head hair?

Appears to be a bottle of wine or beer.

Understand that I've just come from the doctor's office. I'm a bit wobbly from the walk. My (leg) is very sore.

I get a package with no return address and no discernable date on it. I mean really, what's 020409, is that Feb 4th or April 2nd?

So, it wasn't until I looked at the label Witjuti?, and thought, wine or beer? It's corked, so fruit wine maybe, but's what's tucker, is that a beer?, and tried to discern the image on the label and then read the ingredients twice, twice, mind you-- what the hell is a witjuti.. grub? --and look at the cork, that

I noticed the big freaking worm inside the bottttlle!

Ewwww! gulp



So, I guess I've been BOBBED again!

Er, Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've got a birthday party to attend in two weeks. I'm so ready for it!!!


Edit: The smell of Vegemite is filling my apartment. Get help!

Hey! In Strine, grub means food! So does tucker.

Witjuti grubs are good for you, taste kind of nutty. Yes, I've eaten them, although they were roasted and served poking out of holes in a baked apple.
