No SSN No Problem Just send more money

It seems like my current lack of a social security number is not an obstacle to getting various services so long as I have the cash to pay for all sorts of extra fee’s. This has the effect of making everything that much more expensive. It doesn’t help that the bank in the US is playing silly buggers holding on to checks I deposit because it’s a new account.

Apartment Hunting

So I spent the day looking for an apartment, work paid for a guy to help me out show me the good neighbourhoods etc and he drove me round. Nice guy named Leo who was also a musician in a Santana tribute band. Anyway we drove round 10 properties in the immediate area and further afield.

Last Day

So today was my last full day in the UK it was also conveniently close to my mum’s birthday so I spent it packing and also enjoying a nice pub lunch to celebrate.

Fee for processing the fee to approve the fee paid on the fee

It seems to do this rental thing there are a lot of palms that need greasing. Since I’m not going to be in the country and I don’t have anyone local who is foolish enough to get lumbered with the chore I’m having some outfit manage my flat for me. This obviously costs and they get a cut of my rental income.

Election Special

So I did my democratic duty when I got home from work taking a walk over to the nearby polling station and discovered the reason for feeling a bit off today was due to what ever pollen occasionally gives me hay fever was out in force. So by the time I got home.

A hay fever pill some tea and a lie down later I took a look at the news.

A Date Set

So it’s been a while since I last posted mainly because not much was going on just general sorting things out tidying and trying to get agreement on moving.

Variable focus Morality

So I've been playing a second run through on dragon age rolling a dahlish elf dual wielding berserker. The most recent quest gave me the "evil" option to destroy some sacred ashes by pissing on them or something in exchange I unlock the reaver specialization class.
