Default OT: To Be a Fly On Our Walls

This evening I was telling Jim that the next INS project is his naturalization next year. Told him that since I did all the forms and packages for the K-1, the AOS, the EAD's and the A/P's, called and followed up with Matt Udall and our Congressional Immigration Liaison, that the naturalization was completely his. Well he took it nicely ;-)

I had him go online to the INS website and had him order the N-400 and the Guide to Naturalization. While he was doing that, he saw that the I-751 is fillable online. Wanted to do it ... so I let him. There the fun began.

Have you tried to explain the reasoning behing the use of N/A vs None or No? I guess you all have. It is an experience and lead to a heated discussion of right and wrong, acceptable and unacceptable. But with laughter as well ;-)

The form is completed, printed head to toe, front and back, ready for signature.

Now do you think I can get him to collate the attachments, two hold punch the top, do the checklist, insert the tabs, write the cover letter and bind it all with the acco fastener? Hmmm don't think so.

my husband, the USC, has a different philosophy...his reply to any request for help
with the forms or any discussion I start on INS paperwork is simply "legalese stuff
is your department, babe. just tell me where to sign, I trust you."

makes me wanna smack him sometimes. LOL

Legalese is my forte. I've been a legal secretary/paralegal for over 23 years. And that is all Jim has had to do ... sign.

And yes I have smacked him on occasion ... on the arm (we sit side by side in our computer room) when we play backgammon and he is killing me.

I love that game. Got hooked on it in college. Is there any way you and I could play
a game on line? Matt

Sure I'm a registered member of the zone (www.zone.com)

You register and d/l the gammon software, it is quick and easy. Send me an e-mail when you are ready to play and I will give you my user name for the zone.

I also play scrabble there as well.
