quicko: the great australian adjective

NOT what you'd think it might be. I'm actually going with "nice." Now, Australians will immediately begin thinking, "Nice? Really?" I urge them, however, to think again, and with particular regards to their descriptions of food. How many times have they said, "Mmm, that's nice." More than the average American. I would have them then think further and consider how many more times they've said, "Mmm, they do a nice ________." And if they still don't believe, I suggest they listen to their friends who haven't been reading this blog. They'll be niced out by the end of the meal.

(The photo, incidentally, is from the wedding reception. They did a very nice cheesecake.)
