    hey hombres....

    headed off to the USA on Sunday and horror of horrors. I just found out I lost my passport! I'm going to have to do the 24 passport thing tomorrow morning.

    Anyone know anything about it? What time I'd need to be there, etc.?

    I heard scare stories about being there at half seven, but if I'm there for half eight would I be near the top of the queue?

    Sent my sis in yesterday, she was there when they opened and waited about 15 mins. Im off to Toronto in three weeks and lost two passports last week along with the application form. They may only give you a short term passport. I think I'm a little fu*ked as I lost one last year in Hungary, it was found in the Czech Republic and returned via diplomatic pouch but it was with my four month passport that I received in Hungary and now both are lost.

    So I shouldn't be there queueing at eight o clock or anything? I wonder does there a mad U2-ticket-like queue build up?

    So you got U2 tickets eh? I got four, all free cause I live in the area. Gave them away as I'm not really a fan and I'd rather head to the Burren this weekend. A lot of people entered the draw to scalp the tickets so I figured I'd lesten the scalping and gave them to real fans that want to go.
