    So although I've been on this site for a few months now, i never did the introduction thing' and thought i might give it a go.

    Like many people here, i was on the old AE way back, I left and then decided to come back. I've really enjoyed joining up again and reading the posts etc. One of the biggest things i really enjoyed about being on AE the first time was getting to know people and the friendships i made from Australia to all over the world. So i guess that's one of the things i'm really hoping to do this time round as well.

    Seeing as we can no longer state things about us in our profiles, i'll add a few things about me, i'm from Australia (as the name implies), i like to read, i like sports, i like to travel, coffee is a very good friend to me and it's been a damn hot summer so right now i'm super jealous of anyone who has snow!

    Yay for Aussies obsessed with coffee and mad about the no-snow :)

    Btw, there is a part in your profile where you can put stuff, it's under personal information, it's visible but not on your profile page

    Aussies obsessed with coffee - have you tried Starbuck's flat white?

    Oh I don't want to rub it in - temps here is around 60's here (or roughly 13.)

    I don't want to get all coffee snobby (she says as she goes ahead and does it anyway) but no way that's a real flat white they're giving you...but flat whites are awesome in their own right :)

    That's what I thought. I had a taste of it a long time ago and Starbuck's is nowhere near as good. But it is still better than others they offer I think.

    Well I can't speak for other cities in Aus, but after the great Starbucks boom in Sydney, they all closed down apart from a couple.

    I like a good latte, thank you very much.

    @aussie_gabby , which sports do you like? I agree that one of the best parts of AE is meeting people from all over the world.

    I'm a skim cappucino person myself. No sugar.

    I like soccer, ice hockey, watching the olympics in general, netball, well, most sports. I like going to the baseball but don't like watching in on tv

    I had to search this post (and yes @Emm, I learned it by myself. Aren't you proud of me? :cool:) to just say Australia now has sparklemuffins. No, it's nothing cute or cuddly. It is a new specie of spiders. Sparklemuffin. No amount of cutesy names will make it less terrifying...

    I don't know why I thought of this post to let you guys know about that. Anyway, I hope you guys are having a nice weekend.
