There was much hilarity long before and shortly before. The former solidified my reptutation as a willful dumbarse and the latter was straight out of Gogol. There was no hilarity during, just much initialing and signing. There was elation and pancakes with 2 eggs and bacon afterwards.
Most importantly, I heard the words I wanted to hear: "Congratulations. Welcome to Canada."
I landed at 9.00 AM.
ETA: I'll provide more details later this week. I have champagne to drink, petits fours to consume, and Anthony Bourdain to ogle at this very moment.
There's nothing below the fold.
