Damn. That sucks.
You'll have to come to our party on Saturday and we'll console you with far too many sweets.
Thirty lashes with a wet noodle. Then forgive yourself and look forward to the 16th.
That utterly sucks.
You could come play rock band and skype with Jerry at our place. Pretty much any time.
That's really the Rice-a-roni of consolation prizes, I know. Woobah.
Aw, poop. But, you know, after you've been there and back it probably won't matter much when it happened. But right now (especially for poor Jerry), aw, poop.
This is awful!
You and Greg are welcome to come to my party and pout.
Signed, on LJ to print out essays as a gift for her mother.
I'm so sorry. :(
It'll be the 16th before you know it, though. Try not to beat yourself up too much.
Do you need another desk to head on? Have you broken yours yet?
Hugs for you all. I'm so sorry that Christmas is not turning out as you all had planned.
don't you have somewhere to go locally that can renew it in 24 hours for a fee? I think most larger cities have a passport office...
There are some 24-hour turnaround services, but the flight was tomorrow morning, and it's Christmas Eve. So not this time...
There's an emergency passport outpost in southeast Denver. When DHL lost my passport, I made an appointment for Tuesday on Friday and had a passport in hand by Wednesday. But yeah, it's not like buying a case of beer at 7-11.
Oh, buddy. I'm SO SORRY. Things will get better. Angst is way, way better than doom.
Well, it's good that you're going anyway later on. Japan is a neat place. Make sure you have their curry. Cheap and yummy.
HUGE FAIL! LASHINGS OF SELF-RECRIMINATION!
it sucks bigtime. these things do happen, alas. stupid bureaucratic things. and you clearly didn't mean to do it, and there is a limit to how much beating yourself up you should do. so slap head, get new one, and figure out way to extra awesome it up in january.
merry christmas none the less!
You're reminding me to look at my passport. I know lots of good, smart people who've done the same.
You are absolved.
Bummer. It happens more often than you'd think though, so don't be too hard on yourself.
Gah! What a shock that must have been.
Major bummer for everyone...
Blech! But yes, try not to be too hard on yourself; the 16th isn't that far off, and y'all will enjoy yourselves plenty then.
Oh, that sucks. I'm so sorry to hear it.
OK. For that, you definitely get a spanking (or two).
You'll just have to work extra hard to make it up to everyone.
I'm sorry. Just look forward to the 16th when you will all be together again!
