Ack! Can't go, must sell!  
*sigh* Yeah, I missed the memo on the whole Passport Required For Canada travel thing, and my passport expired ten years ago (right before I had my first child. Yes, those things are related). The turnaround time is just too long (unless I want to pay $350-$400 dollars to expedite), so the upshot is that I just can't go overall.

I'm sure you're all as sick of the drama as I am!

So once again, I've got to sell my Silver Ticket.

Here's the ebay listing: Silver Ticket

It's priced starting at $100, with free shipping. What a bargain! The bidding time is just one day, because I need to get the ticket off via Express Mail to the winner in time for the event.

The Silver Ticket package includes personal autographs with all of the major cast members, which is worth the price of the ticket alone!

ETA: Now I have to figure out what to wear to that wedding after all. That will fit. And doesn't have 1980's padded-armor shoulders. :0

I'm a British/American citizen, so when I renew my passport, I have to renew my passports, which is twice the pain. The best story, though? Both of them expired around the same time, a couple years ago. I sent all the info/pictures for both out at the same time. One week later, my British passport arrived. Twelve weeks later my American passport arrived.

And I live in America. WTF, yanks.

Population of Great Britain: 60,943,912. Population of United States: 304,059,724. Population of United States sophisticated enough to travel outside same, requiring passports: 10,000, give or take. So yeah, scandalous.

It's our beaurocracy. Makes most other beaurocracies seem competent, in comparison. :0

I didn't realize you were also a British citizen!

Oddly enough, the Brits-- though more "centrally located" perhaps and also the target of IRA terrorism-- seem to be much less paranoid that the U.S.

And passports to fly in and out of Canada, for crying out loud-- arrive by plane, leave by plane within 4 days. You'd think you could get a temporary voucher with all your ID info that says "Yes, I came from the U.S., and I'm going back."
