Fun at the DMV and Crate and Barrel Outlet goodies
I went to the Naperville DMV on Wednesday to change my name on my license, so that I can move on with life and transfer my 401k funds from my old job. That was a half hour of government fun. I look like a boy in my picture because my hair was pulled back and I didn't have any girly stuff on. I liked my old picture better, but just getting that task out of the way is more than worth it. Changing your name is a total pain in the butt, don't ever let anyone tell you otherwise. I still have stuff needing changing: credit cards, my auto insurance, etc. And my new last name is a mouthful, so it's always fun to get people to spell and pronounce it correctly.
As a consolation prize, I stopped by Crate and Barrel Outlet and picked up a few cute things:
Bird Bath Stand (I'm using it as a feeder.)
Silicon Grips (similar to this but better)
Marin Ramekin (I'm using it as a catch-all dish on my desk.)
It made my trip through the roped DMV lines worth it.
