got my text from Home Affairs around 9am today – saying my passport had been dispatched to WHA.
i then got a text around 1300 saying it had arrived at WHA and was ready for collection – so I RACED to HA (Broomhilda took offense at my bad driving and did her jerky jerky stall thing most of the way there and all the way home) after work and dashed inside.
(parking guard tapping his watch as I ran passed – they close at 5pm)
“vinnig vinning, mevrou!” he said
While I was there, I asked about my birth certificate too, which was about 5 months now (2 to 3 months they said and I applied in October last year) and apparently I must be on some sort of “watch list” now (after throwing my toys quite vehemently last time) because the guy JUMPED to help and went and spoke to the head of that department and she gave me her direct line and said she would check it out in the morning etc. Which is pretty cool.
I should have asked about my marriage license too… the unabridged one.
I’ll mail Andred about that.
so now i have my passport.
now the real processes can begin!
Have to DHL my stuff – need to make copies and get them certified before i send them of course. So i can start things on my side too.
Not that i can start much – oh! can get my international drivers license!
That’s a step.
what an awful day
but that’s at least one bright little light in my day.
we carry on
on the beaches
in the trenches
and f**k you stupid blonde freshman – so WHAT if I am a geek? So what if I tripped? You’re not in high school any more, grow up.
