So I have to get a new passport. Denis and I have had a long-standing debate over who lost my passport (he did). Neither here nor there, one year later I’ve decided to go ahead and get a new one. So I got the forms from Mare-Bear (who is also applying for her US Passport), and realize that I also have to fill out the forms to report a lost passport. Then I find out that because I have lost a passport I now have to apply IN PERSON instead of just sending off the forms. So I go online and find out that because I live in New Jersey they have a rule that if you apply for a passport you have to have a valid NJ Driver’s License.
Uh. I don’t have one of those. See, last year Denis and I went and took the driver’s test (yes, we had to actually take a written test even though 99% of the other states just allow you to fill out a “change of address” form). Denis passed. I failed. What’s ironic is that Denis had only driven a handful of times up to that point and I’d been driving since I was 16. Oh yeah, I know irony when I see it.
So this means I gotta go ahead and study for that stupid written test, take the test (and pass), and then I can go get my passport.
You know, I love my neighborhood. But I hate New Jersey.
