Welp, here we go…

That’s…$1,660.23. Ouch.

Next step, some time in late May I hop a train to Maidstone with my documentation and have my dabs taken (that’s English cop slang for fingerprints). All the alternatives were in London, so whatevs.

After that, a ceremony. Closer to home, I hope. I will have to swear an Oath of Allegiance, an Affirmation of Allegiance and a Pledge. The first two are to the Crown, which chaps my ass because I take my word seriously.

“At the end of the ceremony you’ll be presented with your certificate of British citizenship and a welcome pack.”

A welcome pack. I do hope there’s a little Union Jack in it.

p.s. New Dead Pool tomorrow. Harry Belafonte fans and Jerry Springer pickers hardest hit.

Do you get a nice challenge coin with HRH’s face on it in your Welcome Pack? For 1600 bucks I would hope so!

Congrats (I think), Weasie, on the big event, though it’s tough to lose a countryman (woman). But I’m not a biologist.

Remind me again, what does Weasel Blog Time 6 p.m. translate to EST?

Oh, sure, I keep my American citizenship, Expresso Bold. In fact, it’s quite difficult to drop your citizenship. You have to do it in person at the embassy in London and they supposedly try to talk you out of it.

The only downsides to dual citizenship: I’m not allowed to work for the spooks of either country and if I get kidnapped by Somali pirates, the two countries argue about who has to pay my ransom.

RushBabe: WBT is GMT which doesn’t recognize BST.

Translation: it’s an hour later in the Summer.
