I feel like I’ve spent the last three hours filling out the passport forms…because I have actually spent three hours filling them out. (Download off the net, load into PDFPenPro, edit, print out, then read instructions, fix multiple mistakes, print out, read instructions again, fix fewer mistakes, wonder who to list as References, hmmm, search for their addresses, address access determines who gets to be a reference [you’re one of them, Jon H. and no I’m not coming caroling] print out again, can’t find any mistakes [doesn’t mean there aren’t any, just means I can’t find them].)
Now I need to go get my hair cut. I hate getting my hair cut. Last time was in the summer and Imbi did it at the cottage. At least I got to stare at the lake and listen to good music. Now I need to walk down the street and try out a barber I’ve never used before. I hate this. And then I have to get pictures taken. I hate that to – I always end up looking like some foreign criminal (I’m not, really I’m not). Then I’ve got to get some fine, upstanding professional to guarantee I am who I say I am – a Doctor, Lawyer, Pastor, Chiropractor… And tomorrow I get to go stand in line at the passport office and wait to be told what I’ve forgotten to put in the documents.
Maybe I should forget traveling and just stay home.
