Guess what showed up in the mail?

...yep. Just opened it.

I didn't want to admit it, but now I am a certified dole sponger. Not that I have applied for (the dole part) it.

I went to the whole citizenship ceremony earlier this month, which was an interesting experience, and where they got my fucking name wrong on it. Natch. Not that it was that hard to spell. Especially when I had to spell it out in B-O-L-D a zillion times on the application form. Still have the pic of me we with pic of queen in the background, accepting the wrongly spelled certificate. Was all very British and very Monty Python. Couldn't make it up. Any whooo, they re-sent me a corrected document, which I got two days ago, but only just managed to open my mail, which usually just goes straight to the bin. "Merry" Xmas?

Don't know what to make of it. Very weird. I guess I am a citizen (also) of this other special relationship country across the "pond." Kill me. I hate that all of you for talking me into this mess.

p.s: guess, they couldn't reprint the exact date they had to re-issue the cert, as it was written in hand.

Congratulations, I think.

As soon as they find out you're unemployed, they'll take it back.

Can do all of that (mostly do), minus cricket. Which, despite my best efforts, and even my dad's efforts (who likes it, as his dad was an Aussie) remains a mystery to me.

Eldest Miss F used to work in a Chinese takeaway, a fair few of them became citizens.

Used to get asked questions similar to the ones on the citizen test. Failed every time!
