Irreverent rants, hungover musings, too much salt...

Language police

I've noticed Australian newsreaders have started saying 'at the weekend'. This shits me: it's what the Brits say, which is fine for them, but in Australia we say 'on the weekend'.

I also saw an ad the other day where they spoke of frosting on a cake. Sorry, this isn't Kansas: it's called 'icing'.

In some other ways we are becoming more American than Americans.

And they still make the seating on public transport too small. I guess they need the aisle space so fat-arses can get through.
