Almost there

Trang submitted her passport today. It should be stamped in about 7 weeks. They said 4-6, but they've never done anything within their stated timeframes so far.

I'm firmly putting her release date at 'late Q3 06', barring any unforseen problems from the publisher Immigration Canada. Yay. I don't hafta leave Canada.

I'm thinking we need a countdown ticker. Trang in T-Minus... and have a big shindig for zero hour. Y'know? We could play the Immigration Drinking Game. Take a swig for every unreturned call. Down a bottle for each piece of paperwork they let expire. Empty a keg for each lie they tell. That kinda thing.

Honey, to celebrate, I've compiled a list of English words you'll learn to hate. :)

Ulterior motive. Name drop games Duc should buy and not have the time to play. ^_^

Mass Effect and Too Human are headed by canuck developers and they look outstanding. Impressive stuff.

That's great news! We should celebrate by watching fast cars and hot Asian girls. . . oh wait, we already planned that. See you after work.

So, anyone figure out how to extend time? If so, let me know. I need more hours in a day.
 
Develop a sleeping disorder, it's fucking amazing.
 
Already tried that. I get about 4-6 hours of sleep most days (sometimes less). I get more stuff done, but there's side-effects. . . some being pretty nasty.
 
Yeah...I hope everything works out for you Tuan. We should celebrate with a big gathering and lots of food, we can introduce Trang to some of the nicer Candadian foods...Will work on the stranger ones over time

As for the lack of sleep, yeah I got called on it at work. The biggest problem, small details. Then there is the dark eyes, sour mood, incooperative body, lack of ambition and the list goes on. I have been making about 5.5 hours sleep a night and it is catching up on me.
 
The worst problem for me is eye fatigue. Working on a computer most of the time doesn't help either. Usually starts with my eyes burning and then the unbearable pain at the temples. Tylenol does nothing, only thing that works is sleep. I've wasted an entire day sleeping it off before.

Little things you forget to do is especially bad when you're tired and trying to do something.

I'm pretty famous for my power naps at work. . . .
 
Congrats bud!

I will keep all fingers and toes crossed for you....

It's at times like these that I wish I was home to welcome her and celebrate with you guys in grand style...

...but at least I have faith that Bini won't disappoint me in having my share of the festivities as well. :op
 
We're holding a ceremony over here. I'm a guy. I have no say. And I'm not payin for it. But it will be big. Asian parents. Nuff said. :)

And you're all invited regardless of which country you're in.
 
woo! good news!
 
Just let us know when.
