State Clearance, USCIS and Jack Donaghy

State/FBI Clearance update:

Just got off the phone with Shirley (new friend over at the state dept):

Fingerprints were received and the clearance was put in the mail TODAY!

Let the dancing begin!

USCIS update:

They accepted our application this time. Excellent. It is still in route to the National Benefit Center, which they call NBC. The man on the phone only laughed a little at my joke asking if Jack Donaghy  was going to be my assigned officer or if I could request Liz Lemon instead.  Everyone start praying that the 75 day estimate for processing/approval he gave me is more like 2 weeks.   I want Christmas snuggles people!!!
