It can take up to 3 weeks for my SSN to arrive.

Until it does, I'm a non-person as far as much of the USA is concerned. In particular, I cannot open a bank account and I cannot apply for a drivers license. And without those, I can't really do much at all.

Melinda's going to take the lead on these; I'll have to be added to the checking account and take my driving test later.

On the upside, though, I have my library card — which gets me internet access (albeit limited to 60 minutes a day) as well as just books and videos...


Surely you could play XBox?
Ah, but I've finished Halo and Halo 2 isn't quite out yet.
