Happy birfday to me...

In more interesting news, you may have heard that Shellswick's visa interview is scheduled for Monday the 24th. Assuming they don't decide she's some kind of gay commie terrorist, she'll be here in early august. I say it's about time. I don't think it's unreasonable to want my, y'know, wife to live in the same country as me.

There was some confusion last week when I opened my mail and found the exact same form that she had just sent in two days before. Turns out this one was the application for her Green Card, the one that will allow her to be a permanent resident, to get a job and not have to get something called an "alien parole" if she needs to go back to Canada.

Here's the kicker, though: with her visa, she can't go back to the GWN without this Alien Parole thingmy. But her Green Card interview is supposed to take place in Montreal, which I've just learned is in Canada. So does she need the Parole to go to her interview? Does she have to stay in Montreal until she gets her green card? Is the government an ineptly run bureaucracy at odds with itself? And what about Naomi?

Anyway, yeah, 36 today. The party will take place upon Shellswick's arrival. I could joke that she's my birthday present, but she was already my 30th birthday present, and regifting is just tacky.

Duly noted. i shan't give that gift again.
technically, this means you'd have to give her BACK to who had her in the first place...meaning her mom..eww. Maybe I'm wrong...what does it mean?
