I found an Aussie blog! I just got back from Australia, and loved it. A shout out to your country. Holla!

I hope the two hippy guys get far, they're funny, and provide entertainment. I like the two boy band friends, but I don't want to see them drooling all over the ditzy pink friends the whole show. Bleck!
