Visa. Check.

When I received an email yesterday with the subject of "Visa" I was sure something annoying had made its way through Gmail's amazing spam filter. But then I realized that it came from the British Consulate in Manhattan, confirming that a nameless diplomatic office worker had actually seen my visa application and ought to give me permission to reside in England within five days. Forty-five minutes ago I received an email saying that my visa was issued; I must say that I appreciate British punctuality!

One more item to check off the list!

Very well done. Dan's company screwed mine up before we went so Courtney and I had to leave the country and come back in. They weren't very nice about it either!

It's always nice to check something off the list, and it's a pretty important one at that!
