Given the delicate nature of the Australian/US political relationship, perhaps this iPad can be seen as a bit of an olive branch, as well as a contest prize? I will have to examine the tax deductibility of olive branches…congrats, Ben, enjoy the iPad!
One quick thing as I continue to enjoy my hiatus: if there is anything worse than rigorously following your NFL team’s offseason, getting overly optimistic/fired up, heading to a local bar to watch the first game, and then seeing them get the sh*t kicked out of them by the (terrible) Seahawks, I don’t know what it is. Brutal. Really looking forward to next week’s game against New Orleans, should be a debacle.
