ooooh... im in for this one! Grin

id love mostly aussie swappers, poor cash flow atm, but i guess if i swapped 4 pairs, then i can go half aussie, half international!  Cool if that works out ok, that is  Wink

Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.

Shit yeah, why the hell not?  I have no idea of what I'd make, but... maybe I'll just get extra creative!

Oh god it's nice to see some dates written out properly.

I just sent in my questionnaire.  I'm excited for this one, I'm going to post my earring board later just for fun. 

As for the date thing, I'm from the US but I have lived in 2 other countries who both wrote the date the opposite of us (I think maybe everyone does, right?)  Anyway, after confusion upon confusion, I find it is best to write the date as:

2 April 2009 (or April, 2nd 2009).  For the longer months I abbreviate, like Feb or something.  Sometimes it gets really confusing because you know that people write the date differently, but then sometimes they write it your way (trying not to confuse you) and it just gets into a whole mess. 

Anyway, not to ramble about non swap related stuff, but my friend actually found that she liked having the dates switched, because the bars in Mexico thought she was 18 sooner than she really was (6/4 on US id card, but interpreted as 4/6 in Mexico).  You would think they would figure that one out when someone hands them an ID card with a date higher than 12....
