It is all GOOOOOOOOOOOD!

It is 12:21pm Eastern Standard Time. I just got off the phone with the Chief of the non-immigrant visa section at Ciudad Juarez general consulate. He said, "Hi [Kip], just wanted to let you know your visa is ready to print. Just come in whenever and we will process it for you the same day." He preferred that I go there on Monday January 28, 2008. It is all done! I will celebrate.

Oh, I just got an email too. It reads

"[Kip] --
Your visa is ready for printing. Please let us know when you will come back to Ciudad Juarez.
Regards
xxxxxxx"

You all have been awesome! Thanks.

Yippeee!!! I think the Superbowl party should become a "Welcome Home Kip" party.

Well, it is not done until it is done. One more huddle, I have to locate my passport!

They tricked you! Monday, January 24th is NOT THIS YEAR!! Oh my god! We don't want to lose you Kip! But it's great that you got a visa! I'll drink to that...

Brian,
You cant scare me, I am already scared! But hey, I will get wasted to that and I am glad you are on board. Be ready for those drunken calls. When do you come to Charm City again? Thanks yo!

Kip,
Great news! It will be much more assuring once you are back home in B-more. I hope the visa is good for a few years - check the dates. I'll buy you a Guinness to celebrate your return!

Jan! I hear you are planning to propose to me. Is it going to be a surprise or are you planning to get me drunk and take advantage of that moment?

RM said...

Is there anyone that loves Guinness more than Jan??!

Great news buddy, I'm psyched. Now you can get back into running.

And we're make our Superbowl party a special party for you!

I figured if it came to extreme measures, I would help you out - (just for technical purposes you know)- fellow runner, Guinness drinker, and the spelling of my name. Sheila offered too.

Let us know when you are back in town. It's good to know you haven't lost your sense of humor through this ordeal. How long is the new visa good for? I was looking around on some of the links and couldn't find it. So many forms!

Jan and RM,

Jan, I am almost half Mexican, how could I not spell your name correctly! Lets drink to that soon.

RM, I have my thesis proposal presentation on Feb 5, is that party after that?

good job...maybe you will run faster if you think of where you might have been...just kidding.

Sometimes good things happen to good people...

Anonymous,

Hahaha, you are right. Could have been worse though. Thanks.

Kip, the Superbowl party is actually two days BEFORE your proposal, BUT here is the good news: February 5th is Fat Tuesday, the biggest day of the year for Catholics (just kidding, it's big for everyone). We should either fly to New Orleans or have a party on Tuesday night. I'm willing to be tired on Wednesday. Let's get some people together!
