It's Friday morning here in Oz, so that's like the weekend already! (No point leaving my wind-down until this afternoon. I mean, it beats the rush, right?) Not just any weekend, but a long 3 day weekend. I think Australia has more public holidays than any other country in the Western World, we will celebrate/commemorate anything.
Just another reason to live here, right?
Speaking of such matters, Kris is celebrating becoming an official citizen of OZ this weekend. A hot topic in these parts of late is the proposal that all future citizenship applicants should be given a test. To see if the 'fit', if they're 'our sort of people', you know?
You can keep your boring questions about Federation and Phar Lap, let's get down to some questions that really see if you'll fit in.
