Finally, some fucking GOOD NEWS for a change!

Awww, thanks for the comments, guys. You stayed for the snark? Sniff! I'm so proud! Although I think the blog has been pretty sappy and wishy washy lately, so I will try to improve on that.

I was going to blog today about dieticians and why I could never be one (my god, they need the patience of a frickin' SAINT - I could never say the same thing over and over and over again to try to get people to eat better). Or maybe about the idiots that run my local gas company (got a letter yesterday, dated 4 days previously that unless they heard from me within 5 days they would cut my gas supply off so they could do something with my meter). Or maybe I was going to do my semi-annual rant about why some Americans can't understand that they too have an accent (yes, you damn well DO. Everybody has an accent).

But instead....

some good news for once. Insanely awesome news. Absolutely wonderful, the best news I could hope for - short of getting knocked up - type of news. After nearly 8 years, I got approval to get me one of these!!!

I am freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

Pepper said...

I admit to being guilty of the I-don't-have-an-accent thing, but in my defense I did realize the error of my ways when I was a mere teen. :o)

Many, many congrats on your accomplishment! It must feel as if a huge weight has been lifted, which is so incredibly awesome.

I clicked over from the L&F posting. Very cool! My husband is a proud green-card carrying LPR himself. He may eventually pursue dual citizenship, but until such a time as the German government makes it a bit easier, he's content as things are.

Congratulations to you!
