Re: Staying out of the USA more than 6 months - advice needed!

Re: Staying out of the USA more than 6 months - advice needed!

Lol - Icelandair don't fly to Minneapolis at all in the winter. I wish they did - I actually took them to MSP in January of 2004. But alas, no more. They scrapped their winter schedule a couple of...

Re: Staying out of the USA more than 6 months - advice needed!

Lol - yep! Well it does seem to be! I simply can't afford to throw money around on tickets - wish I could, but unfortunately that's not possible. I don't have any credit cards and don't plan on...

Re: Staying out of the USA more than 6 months - advice needed!

I saw that they were more expensive - I hope they wouldn't question me as to why I bought a return. Ah well, I suppose if it did come down to that I could simply offer to cancel the return part in...

Re: Passport Delays

Re: Passport Delays

I contacted Dean and got an email from the Embassy not long afterward! He is a very effective gentleman! :)

Re: Passport Delays

We're traveling on the 23rd - so we're in the same boat to some degree (since you have your Canadian passport also, correct? And Bella has her American passport). I do hope yours comes!

Re: Disillusioned

Well, thankfully I wasn't actually 100% serious here... It's not like I'm going to actually walk off and leave someone hanging. Maybe I should have rephrased that as "some days I don't feel like...

Re: Money Transfer to USA & Barclays Bank

Have your bank put a lock on your account because it's being used abroad? My English bank did that several times and I had to ring them up and sort it out. I think mine has a Cirrus on the back of...

Actually come to think of it, that Geico ad is a parody of that! That lovely gecko always brings a smile to my face. I wonder if they make stuffed animals of him... :)

I've had the Australian comment more times than I can count.

Maybe it's where I'm based? Is it a Midwest thing, maybe?

Re: Disillusioned

It's not EVERYONE I get annoyed with though, you see - I don't for example get annoyed if it's asked in the natural course of a conversation, or if I've known the person for a while. I've had a few...
