It is precious to me . . .

After many years of waiting, and jumping through the flaming hoops of a variety of Napoleonic national beuracracies, I today finally acquired a full fledged work permit in Europe. The Federal Republic of Germany deemed it prudent to place two big stickers in my passport and it now seems heavier to bear in my hand or pocket.

So shiny, so beautiful . . . my precious . . .

Feeling swells of nationalism, are we?
I won't be concerned until you start using the "Fatherland" expression.

Get your citizenship quickly so we can all come and work as short order cooks/live in your attic!
