I started a small circus, where OF COURSE I was the ringleader to an adorable jungle cat. And a burned out Superman. And Beaker. And the Iceman. Just exactly right, I'd say. If you don't agree, THEN START YOUR OWN FLIPPIN' CIRCUS.

So, did I say I had my visa in my last post?
Haha, just kidding. HOOPS. THERE ARE ENDLESS HOOPS TO JUMP THROUGH. But thanks to 23 years of formal education, 2 years as a federal employee, and 3 years as a Medicare provider, I am an EXPERT hoop jumper. Just watch me go!!!
Here's what actually happened: the Japanese Immigration Bureau approved my "Certificate of Eligibility," which is a piece of paper that says I am now ALLOWED to apply for a visa. Right. So I filled out more papers, drove to Miami Monday, dropped off the visa application at the embassy, drove back down today, picked up my passport complete with visa, and NOW I have it. Yay! Riveting stuff, I know.
I'm so glad they let me use the smiling picture for my visa...the same picture which had been deemed unacceptable for the Certificate of Eligibility, and required a retake for serial killer-style pics. You think I'm joking? Compare:
