Hello World

So I have finally decided to take the plunge and start a blog. Can't promise it will be interesting, but I can promise it will be amateurish. All spelling mistakes and grammatical errors are deliberate attempts to convey irony. If something can be interpreted to be offensive, I meant it the other way.

The name LimaEchoEcho comes from my first name spelt using the phonetic alphabet. Living in the US for nearly 4 years now, but still maintaining my nasally tendency of talk'n stralian (Translation: Speaking Australian), the phonetic alphabet has helped me on many occasions. Who said that the 18 months I spent in the Army Reserve was a waste of time? Given that E can easily be confused for an A when spoken by an Aussie, I've actually had to change the way I say my own name. My favorite story being the time I called for a cab not long after arriving in the country. When I told them my name they said, "Was that Ray Sanderson?"

"Close enough, just send my cab."
