Day 3: Today I wrote porn just to see if I could...

January 14, 2017

Turns out I can. 

 

...and that discovery is more profound than anything I could blog today.

In other more practical news, I contacted and received word from immigration lawyer.  I then had to write a prose retelling of my entire career referencing every award, accolade and publication.

 

It was a shorter document than I would have liked, but it still took me three hours.  Strange to see your whole career flash in front of your eyes in an unassuming email.  When only listing your most profound achievements, you end up asking yourself things like "what the f**k did I do between 2013 and 2015?" Strange gaps appear between your notable wins and you have zero memory of where you were or what mediocre things you were doing to fill your time.

 

My porn revelation was something that didn't make the list but I'll take the lawyer's advice on whether to include that or not.  It may be I can bring an international flavour to the American sex industry.  I'm sure Visas have been granted for less.

 

I also had to help my young cousin who saw fit to begin his university applications 20 hours before the deadline.  It seems that we must indeed have some shared genetic material.  He has promised that if I help him, he will confer upon me some kind of nationally recognised award that I can use to boost my immigration chances.

 

I suspect he may be lying.

 

More on the American story tomorrow.

 

And on a completely unrelated note, today is my girlfriend's birthday. :-)
