As you may have gathered from my ‘post’ the other day, I haven’t just dropped off the face of the Earth. It’s just that, since returning from Kirkland Lake, absolutely nothing has happened. I’ve gone to work, gone home, gone to work, gone home, gone to work…the ‘tourist’ part of my tourist Visa seems to be falling to the side lately. We’ve tried a couple of times to do something, but either lousy weather or a lousy weather FORCAST which has in fact lied to us harder than Michael Fish have prevented us from doing so.
So I still don’t really have much to report. I’ve finally applied for my New Zealand visa, which is good at least. It’s interesting how the application process for Canada involved literally around 12 pages of forms, duplicates, a police check, passport photos, postage to the Canadian Embassy in France (why not England? because FUCK ENGLISH thats why!) and a wire transfer payment that had to be done in a rediculously arcane manner and a three month waiting period.
The New Zealand app took ten minutes of filling in an online form and should take about five days.
I’m also trying so very hard not to just turn this damned blog into a video games and movies review thing, because all I’ve wanted to do lately is go off on a ten thousand word essay about Mass Effect 3 and it seems that almost every other post has nothing to do with Canada at all. Which isn’t exactly the modus operandi of this blog.
