Sometimes, family does end with blood…

one more week to ukie fest at suzy-q!

So… “A person, whose parents or one of the parents were citizens of Ukraine at the time of his/her birth is a citizen of Ukraine.”

My grandparents were DEFINITELY citizens of Ukraine when my mother was born.

From what I can tell, my mother was still a citizen of Ukraine when I was born.

Jack. Pot.

Maybe.

Knowing me, this will get all fucked up…

I mean, there’s this for example: For a citizen of Ukraine an affiliation to foreign citizenship shall not be recognized until the decision on his/her loss of citizenship of Ukraine is adopted.

I don’t know if my grandparents ever gave up their Ukrainian citizenship. I don’t know if my mother did. I don’t think they ever thought about it. At least, I hope they didn’t. That would mean that they’re still citizens, which means there’s my easy in.

I just need to get the birth certificates and move forward from there. (I think I’m just going to suck it up and hire a translator. It will make life so much easier and speed up the process.)

I watched “Hope Floats” today.

I hate that fucking movie.

I mean, it’s cute and all, but Sandra Bullock’s mother dies and then her ex-husband ditches their kid for his new girlfriend. Between the one-two punch of the mother dying and the little girl screaming for her daddy, I always lose my shit. Ugly sobs. Big ugly sobs.

I was still crying when I turned on “Love Actually”. 

I have friends who loathe this movie - with good reason. It’s actually quite terrible. (It’s like you have to hate it if you want to be one of the cool kids. It’s OK. I never wanted to be one of them.)

But! It has Martin Freeman as a sex body double! And his scenes are awesome. Like this one, where he asks the girl out while she’s pretending to blow him!

 

If that doesn’t make you laugh, I don’t know what will.

Maybe this one?

America, watch out, here comes Colin Frissell!... And he’s got a big *knob*!

Yeah. It’s a steaming pile of shite, but I love it so much.

OK… This was a whole post full of nothing, but hey! That’s why you come here. It certainly ain’t for my biting political commentary.
