Australia/Texas Swap Complete!

Australian Causes Texan to Doubt Photographic Ability.

Internet time? Nanoseconds.
Shipping time? Eons.
But it's all worth the wait for a good swap.

The awkward angles that ensue when a Texican tries to do The Tim-Tam Slam while taking a photo...

But waste no pity on that Texan, for lo, she has Ample Amounts of Tasty Goodies from Western Australia! And there is the promise of a real Tim-Tam Slam with other Texans later this week.

(How could she NOT share all this the GimmeSwap luv?)

Australia Receives a Copious Bounty.

I've repressed all evil spirits from my house thanks to the amazing Texan super-soap I've received, and I did it while chowing down on some yummy biscuits, reading the local Texan news and learning some nifty Texan recipes... AND I just happened to do it all whilst standing in front of a convenient Australian flag with my partner in crime.
The biscuits were great, I especially loved the random Texan kangaroo on the front of the pack! I also loved the block of drinking chocolate, though it doesn't taste very nice when you just eat a square.

A few notes on what i sent... Yup, it's not called Jell-o in Australia! That's some Aussie Passiona (brand of passionfruit flavoured drink) flavoured Jelly comin' atcha. The Anzac bikkies are from the Australia New Zealand Army Corps. Well, they're not FROM them cause they'd be moldy, they're in memory of the ANZACs back in Ye Olde Days. See, we're all learning useful information!

Thanks for the great swap Lori, I hope you have fun with the eucalyptus drops, they're just like chewin' on a real gumleaf.

Do you guys actually own an Aussie flag?

I only thought flags were purchased by flag-burners. Or did you burn it right after you took the photo?

BTW, congrats on the stuff being Gimmied.
I'm indulging in a slightly less adventurous cultural exchange - My possessions in return for small quantities of cash from highly dubious pawn brokers and eBay scammers.

Heh heh heh, no no, not the cops, just curious. Don't worry, I won't tell the cops either.

I don't think it's them.
Those two are as unpatriotic and seditious as the next Aussie. Obviously imposters.
