Bunnings has to be somewhere on the eastern seaboard. I'll say Brisbane, but I don't know why.

Q2 - March. Reckon it was early in the year.

Q5 - Would have to use the internet to answer that one. I can picture her in my head, but don't know her name. Reckon she also appeared in a Seinfeld episode.
