I'm not going to tell you how to spend your own time ;) (At least, not
yet. When I'm the undesputed ruler of the world, I might.)

Wrong country ;) (And if you visited Australia recently, like since six
months after they released it here, you wouldn't've come across the ads,
either.)

Melbourne (in Victoria, the southern-most mainland state, but unlike in
America, the south's not where you find your rednecks. It's where you
find your intelligent, rational, cultured people. Queenslanders, our
Rednecks, insist on calling us Mexicans though, because Qld, like
Florida, is where we send our retirees when we no longer want or need
them, and so they perceive us as running up north at any opportunity.
But I digress).

And on another note, and addressed to any who hears it, do Americans not
use 'ring (someone) up' and Brits not use 'call (someone) (up)' to mean
to communicate over the telephone? I was reading something the other day
which made use of Americans use of the latter and Brits the former to
the exclusion of the other... In Australia, both are used.
