My Social Security number finally arrived today: I'm now a fully-fledged member of American society.

Now we can get moving on stuff: we've opened a bank account today, ready to wire the first big dollop of cash across from the UK; and I can finally apply at the DMV for my driving license. Their first available appointment is next Thursday; too far away, so we'll be over there first thing on Monday to wait in line to apply and take the theory test.
