I have a totally flash website which has no xml dependances. The meta description shown on the SERPs is not the tag on my site but text from within the flash file, word for word. This site isn't in dmoz or Yahoo, so is Google actually reading the text in the flash? Any ideas?

Google has been working on this kind of Flash indexing for quite a while - for example, see this thread from 2004 [webmasterworld.com]

As of July 2008 Google's Flash crawling took a big step forward [googleblog.blogspot.com] by integrating code from Adobe's Flash Player.

From what I've seen, the crawl is there, but the ability to rank for important keywords are still quite weak.
