More fun with the USCIS

Well that was a treat. This morning we got to spend 3 hours getting our fingerprints re-done because this adoption has now stretched out so long the prints are expiring. Kind of like old milk I guess? Although these are electronic fingerprints that they store in a computer database! So the entire time we were bowing and scraping to the dour, monosyllabic USCIS and Support Ctr employees in 9 (nine!) different areas the rebel voice in my head was screaming "this is ridiculous!!!!" Ah well. At least it's over now and we don't have to deal with them again. Unless of course the adoption is delayed so long that our 171 expires... Whoo boy, it's hard to even imagine how big of a fit I'll pitch if that happens. Does anyone remember this dialog from the movie Ghostbusters?:
Spengler: I'm worried, Ray. All my readings point to something big on the horizon. Ray: What do you mean, big? Spengler: Well, let's say this Twinkie represents the normal amount of psychokinetic energy in the New York area. Based on this morning's reading, it would be a Twinkie thirty-five feet long, weighing approximately six hundred pounds Ray: That's a big Twinkie.
My fit would be WAY bigger than that Twinkie. PS: note that the Salsa Rumor Alerts section in the sidebar has been updated with the dates for this next batch of referrals.
