  1. I’m keen. You re-applying, Steve?

  2. Michael Oliver says:

    Who won? I’m so out of the loop.

  3. At-least-it's-a-tiny-step-up says:

    I’m not sure if “won” is the correct verb.

  4. Michael Oliver says:

  5. At-least-it's-a-tiny-step-up says:

    Ah, now both years make sense. Thanks for clearing that up.
