Yes, that’s me.
No, I did not have a wild ‘n’ crazy Friday night full of shenanigans and debauchery.
I had to get my passport renewed, and this is the *beautiful* official photo of my to-be-issued-soon passport.
Thursday morning I
put my life on hold set aside some time to go down to the Passport Office in Kitchener. In Canada, you can renew your passport in person, or mail in all the info. When I read the fine print, I noticed that if you chose the mail-in option, you had to mail in your birth certificate –NOT a copy, but the actual certificate. You think I’m letting that out of my possession? And sending it in the mail?? Think again! Despite misgivings as to how much time I would lose from my day, I chose the walk-in approach.
Here’s what the office looked like:
I was in and out in less than 10 minutes.
The gods of good fortune must be pleased with me right now.
In four weeks or so, my new passport should be in my hot little hands, ready for action. Now, I just need a trip to
Aruba the States wherever you want to pay for me to fly in order to use it!
What’s your passport photo like? I find it very hard NOT to smile, keep my eyes open and my lips together. So unnatural!

On a completely different note, Michelle and I went out to see the movie Bridesmaids last eve. I saw a preview for it the night I went out to the Empire theatres, and put it on my list of “movies to see with a girlfriend.”
This is one very funny movie.
But it’s not your standard, polished, formulaic chic flick. Bridesmaids is alternately hilarious, touching, raunchy (you can tell Judd Apatow and SNL alumni had a hand in it – plus there’s some quite crass language!) and gross. If you’ve seen this movie, you know what I mean when I say I have never been as grossed out by a scene in my life – I was laughing and groaning simultaneously! This was the perfect movie to see in a theatre because everyone was laughing and ewwww-ing together throughout the film. Michelle and I laughed a lot. Bridesmaids truly has a unique vibe with an unscripted feel, sometimes uneven (not in a bad way) tone, and non-famous (as in A list) cast. I’ll go with a *** star rating on this one. Take a pass if you’re conservative or get offended easily, though. I’d love to hear your thoughts if you’ve seen this one already!
What current movie do you want to see next? Movie-going on the long weekend is very popular – our theatre was full!
