I got my passport yesterday. I had to go pick it up from the post office becuase a signature was required. Works for me! My head was slightly in the picture so they just re-aligned it. Now my shoulders are out of whack. Oh well. At least they accepted the picture.
The interesting part is that if I am "abroad" and need assistance but there is no Canadian Consulate or anything, I'm directed to the British office. Guess there's perks to being part of the Commonwealth after all!
I'm just glad to finally have a passport. It's only about six years in the making :P
