..and the lingerie helped?.. do tell ;P
I am scandalized by the cleavage, Nani. For shame.
You look effing beautiful and I really do not just mean your bewbs, I promise. (Though they are impressive. *bats eyes*)
The cleavage is kinda hard to ignore. I find myself gawping at it occasionally. :P
WHEEEE! I'm still trying to wrap my head around the notion that I don't need a visa to work here.
YAY! *cheers and shakes my pom poms*
HURRAH! *happy dance* *twirling*
fantabulous. :) many, many congratulations. it's great to know you will still be around. :)
Thank you! Yes, I'm afraid you're all stuck with me now. ;)
Congratulations! Or at last they see sense... (-:
Heh. Or possibly, at last they actually *look* at my application...
Yay for you! Give them some Yank sense!
Thank you! But I'm afraid the Brits don't think the primary American trait is "sense". At least, the one that I live with doesn't. :P
I am so pleased for you. Beauracracy can be vanquished.
The monkey doesn't fit the tutu anymore, guess the american diet was too rich for him.
Yay! Thank you.
Poor monkey. Banana smoothies are not as healthy as plain bananas...
Finally you got your passport back! If only the Border Agency was on yelp or some other ratings service!
Yes! At last. I still can't quite believe how long it took. Sheesh.
I have searched my flat and I am lacking in champagne, mangoes, a tutu and dancing monkeys.
I do have rum, pineapple, a pirate costume and a stuffed toy parrot. So I shall say 'yarrr!' rather than 'yay!' but the intent is the same.
Well done for vanquishing the UKBA!
I take it your passport photo isn't the same as the one above? Because if it is I think I might know why they kept it for six months. ;)
Haha, no, the passport photo is typically awful. And they've done something even more dreadful to the settlement permit photo. Apparently they blur out mouths now? It looks appalling.
Curiously enough, I have champagne and mangoes, but alas and alack, no dancing monkeys. Where can I get some dancing Monkeys!!!! Kahnnnnn!!!
Yours is a well-stocked household. I suspect it would be lacking in mangoes if you did have a dancing monkey.
Congratulations! I hate dealing with anything passport related, it's always such a headache.
Thank you! And agreed. It's nice to know that I never have to do this again unless I want to. There's no obligation to become a British citizen after this.
I may be electing to wait a while...
