Well, my passport application has been submitted. I had a little shiver of worry watching her staple my (original! ack!) birth certificate to the forms and put them in the mail, but I’m sure it will all come back. For the expedited price I paid (all told, nearly $175), I sure hope it comes back, maybe with little bells on.
Speaking of prices, I also went to get my plane tickets today. Holy mother of Visa, that’s going to be a painful purchase. I will probably finalize the tickets tomorrow, and then my diet of “things found in my cabinets” will be forced instead of done out of laziness. I’m still waiting for financial aid to transfer over for the summer – and there’s a chance it might not switch until late May or even, gasp, early June – so I may be very poor for while. Which is why I’m writing this from work. Heh heh. I have delayed the purchase until tomorrow, because I want to be 100 percent certain that my arrival times are kosher. Right now, though, I have a nine-hour layover in London. Ooooo.
