Happy Canada Day!
In truly appropriate fashion, I am spending today finalising and signing my citizenship application. I will blog about the whole immigration process AFTER I get the certificate and passport...
Here's the photo that will forever be associated with my Canadian citizenship. NB you are expressly forbidden to smile in these photos:
Oof. Oh well, these photos always suck, right? And at least it's better than the one on my permanent resident card:
Do you think they'll believe that this is the same person?
(I have a really bad lazy habit of postponing my hair cuts for months and months until my hair is so long I'm heartily sick of it, then getting it cut short and starting the process all over again. Luckily curly hair is quite forgiving of this process. The problem with this last cut (three weeks ago) was that my usual stylist wasn't available, so I saw someone else. I showed her how short I wanted it (about 2 inches longer than it is in the photo), but she clearly wasn't aware that with curly hair you have to cut the wet stuff about 2 inches longer than you actually want it - it bounces back up as it dries. Instead she cut the wet stuff to where I wanted the dry hair to be, and it bounced up to that attractive position in the photo.
Ah well, it grows fast and already looks better than it did three weeks ago...)
A happy (and early) 4th of July to my American readers! I'll be camping / undergoing internet withdrawal cold turkey on the day. Have fun, y'all.
