    I'm a vic girl and married an mid north coast (nsw) boy. We have these discussions a lot. I grew up with primas, poppers, bathers, potato cakes, jaffles and more I forget at the moment.
    He calls them poppas, pop tops, swimmers, potato scallops and toasted sandwiches.

    Oh and I say runners he says joggers
    Of course he thinks he is right but I just think its funny.

    This thread is great.
    I hate the words 'port' (bag) and 'togs' (swimmers) .... Such QLD words, awful.
    I agree with poppers for the same reason as a pp because you blow them up then stamp on them and they go pop

    I remember being really confused when the AP and school said not to wear thongs to work... Wasn't entirely sure what my underwear had to do with anything lol.
    Jersey is a jumper and felt tips are textas. Another one I've come across recently is snaps... I call them poppers lol and that gave the lady on the cloth nappy place a good laugh, apparently I 'am soooo English' lol. Also cozzie instead of bathers and crisps not chips. Chips to me are hot. Donna was confusing (we call it covers or duvet) and runners (trainers). Think that's all I have trouble with at the moment lol starting to grasp it all!

    I will never be able to do dah-tah (day-ta) cause it just sounds silly to me lol and in the UK you can have a root around meaning look for something. A route (root) which is the way to go to get somewhere and a router (root-er) which is how you connect to the Internet

    Jaffles made me think of Jaffa's - a ball of chocolate coated in a thin red candy layer.

    Jiffy pies are two slices of bread with a filling between them and squashed together with hot metal to toast the bread and cook the filling.

    When we came to Australia - I discovered "toasted sandwiches" that were like "jiffy pies" but had a diagonal pressed into them as well. I was so dissapointed that I couldn't find a jiffy pie maker in Australia so had to make do with toasted sandwiches instead. They were okay for most things, but when you used egg as the filling you had to put the yolk on one side and the white on the other side Jiffy pies were so much nicer with the egg in the middle and the white around the outside.

    I remember when I was little we had one that could make three square ones, and another that could make one round one. I loved using the round one on a gas stove and setting fire to the bits of bread that stuck out the edges.
