If anyone has 2 minutes, I'd really appreciate some responses on this: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VH2939B
It's a little research I'm doing for an essay. I have a good few Aussies in already but not really anyone else, so please do chime in!
If you could be a bit specific with the "where are you from" that would also help a lot :)
Thanks!

Thanks everyone! I'm going to leave it active for a few days while I do the background reading, then get stuck into seeing what I get :)

Thanks for that - I've never really thought about *that* word I use and had to find out its derivation ...

Not sure if it's too late, whitequeen, but have just done it for you. Haven't been around for a couple of weeks, as was without a working computer.

My daughter's just reminded me that we use dingsbums - German so pronounced dinksboomps - a lot in our family. I suspect that won't surface very often...

My father favoured the expression 'jiggery-pokery' for these purposes...
