I’ve been retconned, too!

17 Apr

I went here: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/citizenship/rules.asp

Then I spoke to my mom, who only naturalized to the US after I was born.

Therefore, I am a Canadian citizen!!!!!

    WOW! WHAT A SURPRISE!!
    And without even trying!

    > Masq! This is awesome!
    Things happen for reasons.
    Will you have dual citizenship?
    Brings a whole new meaning to the word “eh” –eh?

    We’ll have to have a welcome to Canada party when we’re in Washington! Though I can’t decide if that counts as irony or not 😉

    Heee. Wait for the email. *looks shifty*

  6. neshaffer April 17, 2009 at 11:54 pm #

    Yes, it is dual citizenship, since I was born in the US to a US citizen.

    Oh, there’s a certain amount of irony, but we will not burn the White House or anything bad like that. We will just drink lots of Molsen and you will smuggle in some Tim Horton’s and Canadian candy.

    Woo!!! Canada!

  11. chicken_cem April 18, 2009 at 1:45 am #

    You are so, so lucky.

  12. chaos_by_design April 18, 2009 at 1:49 am #

    I have to admit, I’m a bit jealous.

  13. neshaffer April 18, 2009 at 1:54 am #

    Have to admit, there were moments during the last administration I would have found this factoid tempting.

  14. neshaffer April 18, 2009 at 1:55 am #

    I still need to apply for proof of citizenship, and the link’s broke.

  15. neshaffer April 18, 2009 at 1:55 am #

    My grandparents would be so pleased!

  16. neshaffer April 18, 2009 at 1:56 am #

    Do I get a tattoo or a badge?

  17. ironed_orchid April 18, 2009 at 2:00 am #

    Neat.

  18. neshaffer April 18, 2009 at 2:08 am #

    Hee!

  19. cactuswatcher April 18, 2009 at 2:46 am #

    Congratulations, eh?

  20. neshaffer April 18, 2009 at 2:47 am #

    Take off. Beauty.

  21. cactuswatcher April 18, 2009 at 2:50 am #

    I think this applies to Soulfulspike as well, too. Her parents are/were both Canadian.
    Now that you’re official, can you get me some Tim Bits?

  22. neshaffer April 18, 2009 at 3:09 am #

    You think they ship them from internet orders?

  23. cactuswatcher April 18, 2009 at 3:13 am #

    I thought when you became a Canadian citizen they let you know where the top-secret local Tim Horton’s are.

  24. neshaffer April 18, 2009 at 3:21 am #

    Sekrit subversive Tim Horton’s in Phoenix! Corrupting America one bit at a time!

  25. midnightsjane April 18, 2009 at 3:22 am #

    Whoohoo!
    Party at Timmy’s!!
    Eh?

  26. ann1962 April 18, 2009 at 3:26 am #

    I could always tell!

  27. neshaffer April 18, 2009 at 3:29 am #

    Does it show?
    ::checks for marks::

  28. neshaffer April 18, 2009 at 3:29 am #

    You buying the coffee and donuts?

  29. ann1962 April 18, 2009 at 3:44 am #

    It glows from within!

  30. neshaffer April 18, 2009 at 3:46 am #

    The red, red, glow of Canuckistanship.

  31. darlas_mom April 18, 2009 at 3:55 am #

    Awww, congrats. That’s awesome. I admit, I’m slightly jealous. (Like most twentysomething American Democrats who’ve never really been there, I think of Canada as a glorious utopia of gay rights and socialized healthcare. Of course I’m jealous. :-))

  32. neshaffer April 18, 2009 at 4:03 am #

    It’s a tad cold, but I think I could handle Vancouver. I have relatives there.

  33. mamculuna April 18, 2009 at 4:23 am #

    Lucky you! Wish it was like Dreamwidth and you could send us invites.
    Remember us when you escape…

  34. neshaffer April 18, 2009 at 4:34 am #

    Escape? I’m just taking a quick jaunt over the border to visit friends and relatives. Really, officer.

  35. hankat April 18, 2009 at 10:38 am #

    Now you have to be nice all the time!!!!!!!!!!

  36. neshaffer April 18, 2009 at 12:40 pm #

    So I hear.

  37. ponygirl2000 April 18, 2009 at 6:49 pm #

    Just remember if someone bumps into you it’s now your duty to apologize.
    (p.s. we’ll send you the notes on the sekrit invasion plan soon)

  38. neshaffer April 18, 2009 at 7:41 pm #

    As if I don’t apologize already? I *have* been half-Canadian my whole life!

  39. anomster April 19, 2009 at 3:45 am #

    Mazel tov! Does this make you a RetConadian? @>)

  40. neshaffer April 19, 2009 at 4:34 am #

    Pretty much.

  41. its_art April 19, 2009 at 2:06 pm #

    Welcome to the club!
    I’m also a dual American-Canadian citizen, in the exact opposite way as you– Canadian born, American mother.

  42. zargon10 April 20, 2009 at 5:02 pm #

    Woo hoo! You could move and get married and everything in Canada! Well, if you wanted too…:)

  43. neshaffer April 20, 2009 at 5:02 pm #

    I like having options.
    ; D
