The news is a bit surreal these days. It seems like bush is hell-bent on war. One day he says ‘We don’t need a regime change in Iraq, just that they comply with the UN.’ Iraq starts to destroy missiles and the next words out of his mouth are, ‘Iraq needs a regime change.’ I wish this Onion satire piece was a bit less realistic.

I went down to Tijuana to renew my TN1 VISA last weekend. What a nightmare. I was there for 6 hours trying to find a NAFTA agent to help me with my TN. I kept asking the INS staff ‘who can help me with my TN’. The answer was ‘you will have to wait for a NAFTA agent’. I heard this over and over for 6 hours until a man from Montreal, who was also waiting for his TN got fed up and marched inside the building. After he talked with the people inside, we finally were told we could see a NAFTA agent.

We went inside, and talked to a NAFTA agent that looked very familiar. He was one of the agents who didn’t seem to be doing much, other than telling us ‘you have to wait for a NAFTA agent’. As it turns out, he was the NAFTA agent. Infuriating. After 6 hours of waiting I decided to bite my tongue just get the damned TN done with.
