On her Majesty's secret service

So you know how, in many spy movies, James Bond or Jason Bourne or some other suave and sophisticated guy will open up a folder or a safe and reveal a selection of different identity documents, from different countries, and with different names on them?

I always thought that was pretty damn cool.

Well, check me out:Everything an international woman of mystery needs. Next job: save the world

And they're even in different names!!!!

Not for long though - now that I have my coveted Canadian passport I can send off my UK passport to get the name changed without worrying about being stranded with no travel documents. (And I can also write about my Canadian immigration experiences, as requested by various people. I'll get started soon, I promise!)

  1. I guess this means you'll get a new biometric passport. Don't trust them - my brother was involved in developing them for HM government.

  2. 4 passports: 2 countries, 2 languages, 2 names (with much more complicated combinations). All I need now is an iPhone ;)

  3. Bob, your brother is, like, Q? Cooooool.

    SG, wow, that sounds very complicated! And you should definitely get an iPhone!

  4. Sweet! With just one passport and no iPhone, I suddenly feel very tech-deficient!

  5. Sweet! When do we get to see the watch that fires tranquilizer darts and the super-cool car???

  6. UR, there's an easy way to remedy half of that situation ;)

    MH, I don't need those things, did you not see the iPhone?!

    It's gonna be so great to travel without carrying my marriage certificate to prove the connection between the person in the UK passport and the person on the Canadian immigration status card. Oh, and not getting fingerprinted / photographed by US immigration is going to be fucking awesome.
