I had to EXPEDITE the renewal of my passport ($127!) so I can get in time to go to PICNIC (Amsterdam!) at the end of Sept (I'm scheduled to give a talk w/ my pal Julian B. - check it out)
ps: pretty hot STONE COLD college face, eh? like my beaded necklace too? ha! I got this back in the summer of 1997, right before I went to Europe with Michelle.
ps2: if you need to get a passport photo, hit up the kiosk at K-Mart ($5, 60 second wait). And they spit out real passport photos. Much better than dealing with the staff @ Kinkos.
