While I've been here, mixing with the locals, I have inevitably been introduced to some new expressions. I thought I'd share them for those of you who have yet to visit Sydney and specifically the Potts Point area.
totes = totally
ridic = ridiculous
awks = awkward
general abbreviation occurs whenever possible
smash it = eat/drink quickly
e.g. I smashed that sushi.
shithouse = used as a adjective to describe something crap
e.g. That show was shithouse
trashbag = a person who is drunkard
to root = a verb used in sexual connotations
cancer = an expletive
