After a stressful drive to the USCIS office (did they really need to remove an overpass and gum up the interstate??), followed by difficulty in locating the room once there, the actual Naturalization Interview was entirely anti-climatic. The civics / history test was a doddle, in fact I'm certain up to a half of the country could pass. The very pleasant officer has recommended my naturalization to US citizen (which should happen within the next couple of months). I am amazed given the gruffness of the typical immigrations officer at the airport how polite and cordial all the USCIS staff are at the regional office, and not just towards a native English speaking Brit like me.

In other news: The recent purchase of a bright red growley V8 muscle car at age 38 has led Mrs MidwestLimey to conclude I'm having a midlife crisis. I've told her to hold off on that comment until I start with the tight jeans, hair dye and hitting on 20 year olds.
