To hot to blog...

I forget how to do the linky thing and it's too hot to find out. So I'll just be lame and say CHECK IT:

You haven't got much time to submit. It's a writing blogger publish post thing called 'You're Not the Only One'. See how hot I am? Can't write.

After spending the last two Australian summers in America I had forgotten how horrible HOT is. I was actually looking forward to my mini-break in Australia to get some sun and go swimming. I was so naive! One hot day later (and I think it was only about 36C today) and I'm a wretched sweaty mess. I'm not coping!

Anyway, I wrote a list at work today of things to blog about when I got home. 'You're Not the Only One' was the first. The second was write a birthday post for Mars. But she beat me to it.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY OLD GIRL!!!

Tell me where you live and I'll send you something.

Third topic is: life update for the void. I'm going to Sydney on Friday for my green card interview. THIRTEEN MONTHS ago we submitted my application to immigrate to America and I've finally been granted an interview. So, I can't stuff this one up. My paperwork seems to all be in order (medical check... No TB! Police check... I'm not involved in 'political killings and other acts of violence against the Haitian people'). So now all I have to do is prove my relationship with Blane is real and not laugh when they ask me if I'm a terrorist. The lawyer was quite specific on that one... whatever you do, don't laugh!

I am not a terrorist. I am not a terrorist. I am not a terrorist. Ha!

definitely don't laugh... everyone knows that americans (guess that includes those living in oz and working in the embassy too) take 'homeland security' very seriously... no laughing matter.

incidentally, so does england... but that's a story for another day.

and thanks for the b'day wishes, bro.
