First, Happy New Year to everyone! I hope that you all had a pleasant holiday week.

About my adventure to the Motor Vehicle Department. As it turned out, I wasn't the only last minute Annie showing up on the last possible day of the year -

That's the line! It snaked around inside and spilled out about 10 people deep outside!

And, I wasn't the only one frustrated with all of the new regulations about proving one's identity. A friendly Jersey truck driver cussed out a very heavily accented eastern european clerk because she advised him that his old (and still valid) drivers license and his passport wasn't enough identification... I felt like I was in a Martin rerun!

I only had to go home once to get more papers. After a few hours and this start to a Noro bag to show for the time, I paid my $33 bucks and came away with a new, digitized and probably micro chipped license!

Later that night, I was off to the city to see what eyes are partly for

That Noro is NICE...good grief, what a line! And yeah, Big Brother is probably watching your every move via your new "micro-chipped" license, LOL.

LOVE Alvin Ailey...they don't come here that often.

I have to ask- was Miss Geri at the DMV? ;-)

Happy New Year.

I know I'm late but Happy New Year Deborah! and I'm happy to know you have your new license. Yay!

Hopefully you won't have to go back to the DMV for a long time!

Pretty start to your bag.

Happy New Year! I dread the DMV, even if it's not an annual visit. If I can take care of DMV business at the AAA Office, I'll go there instead and get some maps while I'm at it.
