It's here!! It's already here!!

A snippet from my brief yet excited phone call to my mother last night concerning the arrival of my passport. Can you believe I got it so fast?!?! It's only been a week! I'm amazed. Anyway, here is the photo that will represent me across the world:

Mona Lisa Smile

I'm pleased to note that the gray roots, dark circles and miscellaneous wrinkles are cleverly disguised by the wavy lines. Someone at the State Department loves me.

Before writing this post I perused the web in search of a funny passport photo and let me tell you, that was the most entertaining ten minutes of my week so far. Here are a few that I came across:

Mr. Wild Hair.

Screaming Baby (Muffin? Is that you?)

My favorite - flipping the bird. Classy.

Dora Explores the World!!

And here is the future passport holder for my Muffin when I con persuade her Dad to sign off on the idea of a passport. Of course, I need to find a holder for myself now! Online shopping! Yay! Another half an hour wasted at work!
