Livin’ in Amerrrrica

September 17, 2008

Wednesday night we celebrated. After a few years of filing papers capped by a 1 hour ceremony, Raju became a US citizen.

The swearing in ceremony was interesting, though it left me wondering if the first thing a president does is make a video that welcomes new citizens. Does this happen before he is in office? Or, in that small cusp, do new citizens get to watch the former president welcome them to this country?

At any rate, gee-dub is the usual embarrassment, talking about religious freedoms and looking as if he’s reading the captions right off the screen. It really is hard to take him seriously.

But alas, celebrations ensued – handmade craft, beer, hamburgers, good friends and Rocky IV. Welcome to being an American!
