Today I was meant to be back in the USA, but due to visa incompetence from the US embassy, I’ll have to wait an extra week. Yay, another week of holiday for me! \o/
This means that I’ve spent 10 days here now (including flight days). It’s gone by so fast :( And now I have an extra 7 to do stuff in, so I need to think of things to do.
Exciting excerpts from my visa renewal application.
Have you ever been arrested or convicted for any offense or crime, even though subject of a pardon, amnesty or other similar legal action? Have you ever unlawfully distributed or sold a controlled substance(drug), or been a prostitute or procurer for prostitutes?
Apparently the US already has enough hookers, they don’t need any more.
Do you seek to enter the United States to engage in export control violations, subversive or terrorist activities, or any other unlawful purpose? Are you a member or representative of a terrorist organization as currently designated by the U.S. Secretary of State? Have you ever participated in persecutions directed by the Nazi government of Germany; or have you ever participated in genocide?
Note: only answer YES to this question if you are REALLY DUMB.
Have you ever been afflicted with a communicable disease of public health significance or a dangerous physical or mental disorder, or ever been a drug abuser or addict?
I’m dangerously awesome, does that count?
I just found this video on my desktop, I’ve no idea where it came from.
I am now moved out of my old apartment (move-out inspection done, and everything) and into my new one. Hooray! The landlord seemed happy that I had not burned the building down and left used needles everywhere, so I guess everything else was a bonus.
Tomorrow I’m going to Conquest with my chums, for a weekend of playing games. Rah. Then I only have a week until I vanish and appear back in the UK. That reminds me, I need to make an appointment for passport renewal tonight…
Today I discovered Pandora, which is pretty awesome. You tell it what kind of music you like, and it works out what other stuff you like and plays it to you. 10 hours are free, then it’s $35 a year or something – I subscribed for 3 months, and it’s been pretty awesome so far. Personalised internet radio stations – this is one of the signs we are in the FUTURE. And no commercials. Thank the lord.
