'Name and spell all the United States in alphabetical order'

Just for kicks, I had a quick look at the paperwork we'll be facing down the road a-ways. on the Adjustment of Status form, Part 3(c) requests the following information:

List your present and past membership in or affiliation with every organization, association, fund, foundation, party, club, society or similar group in the United States or in other places since your 16th birthday. Include any foreign military service in this part. If none, write "none." Include thename(s) of organization(s), location(s), dates of membership, from and to, and the nature of the organization(s). If additional space is needed, use aseparate piece of paper.
Seriously?

For anyone who knows me out there, can you imagine if I had to fill this out? From my 16th birthday on? I mean, just, wow. Combine the membership montages of both Election and Rushmore.

That'd be a start.

Also fun reading - the questions on page 3 of the document (scroll past long instructions). Really, they are great. I mean, I'm glad they ask, but, really, who checks yes, exactly? And if someone does, does he or she get a pass for being, like, super honest?

p.s. Bonus points for id-ing the source of this post's title quotation.

Just when you think you're free, Wham!! you get transported to Terry Gilliam's Brazil. I'm just waiting to see what they throw at you next, some kind of obstacle course maybe?

The Quote, it's from Drop Dead Gorgeous, isn't it? Although I must confess to resorting to google to dig it out, is that cheating?

Anyway, the people have spoken and I have been re-elected for another 4 years, the rest of Scotland seems to have been taking crazy pills, but we are OK. Might make it back over next year after all!!

Congrats! You are likely my sole elected-official reader these days! And honor to be sure ;)

Yes, that is the quote's source - but now you have to go rent the movie. It's ace!
