{{ Goes back I think to the Victorian zoo fad for Chimps teaparties, you know dress a bunch of chimpanzee's up in top hat and tails, complete with cigars and set them a big table of messy food, combined with their big cheeky toothy grin and you have the phrase. Utterly unrelated to race or skin colour or comparisons with humans, beyond dressing them like posh Victorian white humans for entertainment purposes that is.
Mind you in Scotland we tend to skip the replacement word all together, for a work colleague you'd just call them a 'cheeky bastard' but if it was a close friend a 'cheeky c*nt'. But it's just our way of being friendly Nod .
I'd probably still use 'cheeky monkey' talking to or about a kid though, in fact I'm sure I did when my little brother was growing up. And I've heard it commonly enough in relation especially to kids, "He's a great lad, but he's a cheeky wee monkey." That sort of thing. }}

Love these vids of Perth. Might be biased, but has to be one of the best places to live.

It definitely doesn't get much press, but looks like it should. A kangaroo sanctuary within sight of downtown is way cool. The fact that they trust the general public to walk right up to them is even cooler.

I was on a subway at the time, so with all that shaking around it would have to be more than a measley 4.7 to be noticed.  But other people said they didn't notice it.  

We had one years ago while I was teaching a class, and the students reacted; I just thought my mind had gone blurry for a second so couldn't figure out why what I said got them so riled up.  It seems when you are concentrating on something a momentary disturbance of reality tends to pass you right by. We are totally used to our frazzled wondering minds.

This is happening in the next town to me. I wont be going. I dont even know if Id be interested ? I dont have the money to do the travelling or to buy a ticket, and I wouldnt be home till really late, which in my town is not a good idea !

If it was somebody you were really interested in hearing the cost would be worth it; doesn't look exhorbitant. But John Garth seem only familiar rather than somebody like Humphrey Carpenter I'd definitely slap down some cash to see.
