My passport is supposed to arrive today. Crazy that I ordered it just 9 days ago and it's ready. If it weren't for Veterans' Day Wednesday, it would have been only 8 days. Extremely impressive and efficient for a government branch - my only complaint is they didn't give me the tracking number for the USPS package I am to expect.
It's a good thing I didn't apply for my passport at the citizenship oath ceremony, because we're going to Korea in 3 weeks. Tickets were so cheap it was too good to pass up - something like $570 + tax per person on United. We had to make trips to get Alex's birth certificate and apply for both our passports super-expedited. Off to Seoul for Thanksgiving!

VP: RAID = Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks
HC: the R in RAID is redundant... so it's more like AID
VP: so, not R
VP: there was one HD
VP: so, we're down to ID
VP: oh, there's an A
VP: so, AID it is
