today has been rough. like spend all day at the social security office and DMV rough. oh wait. that's what i did!
i am legally mrs. giorgi now. pretty rad. what's not pretty rad is my new license picture. i haven't seen it yet, but knowing that i did nothing to my hair this morning sums it up. i didn't think they'd take the picture. but they did. i pleaded and pleaded because my old one is so pretty.
this morning i woke up and thought. ooo. i will surprise toby when he gets home and yell i'm mrs. giorgi at him.
got to the social security office and bam. there's a billion people there. i waited 45 minutes to be told i had the wrong form and i had to go get the right one from the clerks office on the OTHER SIDE OF TOWN. so i go to THE OTHER SIDE OF TOWN and they tell me this form is actually back on THE OTHER SIDE OF TOWN i just CAME FROM.
really? really?! i was going to punch someone.
so i finally get the right form and get back to social security and get the damn slip of paper which shows my new name.
all feelings of hostility vanished.
until i got to the DMV. they reappeared like ninjas.
i waited in a line to get a number for another line.
the DMV is the abyss where civil servants go to train for satanism.
they all look at you like you're stupid and roll their eyes when you have a question.
okay sorry, i avoid this place as much as i can so i don't know which form to get.
then the evil lady tells me i need a new picture.
ugh. the ninjas just threw their little ninja stars.
and of course i flee to the bathroom to make sure i look somewhat okay.
damn i shouldn't have had that burrito last night.
anyways. i take the damn picture. and i have to sign my new name.
feelings disappear. but i know those ninjas will be back in 4 to 6 weeks when i get my new license in the mail.
