What's so wrong with people (fellow-travelers) around the world chatting? Why does it have to be a strict and rigid topic before it is considered worthy of discussion? Why the warning that someone might be "wasting" someone else's time. Checking this site is not mandatory! However, you must find something appealing about it or else you wouldn't keep checking it. (Isn't that right, James?) Anyway, there is usually no more than one topic of this type going at one time. Lighten up.

James, I'm sorry I hurt your feelings. However, based on the way you criticized me in your original posting for checking with the post office to find an answer to Natasha's question, and the way you implied how stupid postal employees are, I assumed you could take it as good as you could dish it out. I guess I was wrong. Sorry, I didn't know you were so sensitive.

Dear Natasha - Clearly, it is unacceptable to ask an innocent question these days. This was your topic, and I believe you have your answer. Why not put this issue to bed - to paraphrase the excellent John Cleese - "this parrot has ceased to be" - and say thanks and goodbye and Joan, get a life.

Joan - just a word to the wise - MY last message was two days ago, so don't be duped by phony responses, e.g., the latest "duh" message. I admit I did check back because this was without a doubt the wierdest chat going these past few days. But "obscure" is just a made-up name, I chat all the time, but this is my last with you folks. See, I told you - there are no regs. on this issue, and the State dept. person just made it up on the spot. You are no doubt an expert in some areas, but just a beginner in others. Goodbye at this posting, and if another uses by phony name again, try not to buy in. Chow.

James, if you know that all the postings with your name on them are not your's, then why would you conclude that all the postings with my name on them are mine? Duh! Just kidding. Seriously, I reported this to my service provider.

Joan: I apologize to you. My remarks were unkind. I believe the exchanges have gone on for too long. Not to be repetitive, but no one is listening. Lets all agree to stop now.

Big mystery, Keith, Ken. etc. You are so apparent. Who else but you stoops to falsifying postings? Hate to ruin your fun but based on past experience it seems once you are revealed it takes the fun out of it for you. Doesn't it? Is this when you start cussing us?

By the way, I doubt you will get the last word in.

You're so right, if only because you would like for there not to be a 'last word'. Look chaps, stop replying so Joan can find another topic to bore instead. Give it a rest, for goodness sake!

Sabrina, think twice before you answer. You may be getting two or more for the price of one (You may get a Keith, a Ken, a James, a etc) If you guys get married, can we plan your honeymoon? Just instantly I can think of a place you can both go.

Let's see. You could decide what your favorite hair color is (if possible) and use that on your application. It would be important to make sure to have it that color when having your photo taken. Then, be sure to make a note to return your hair to that color whenever you travel to places requiring a passport. In between trips, you can be more creative. Or, perhaps you could have your passport amended each time you change your hair color (like one does after having changed one's name upon marriage). Keep in mind, though, there's only so much room on the back page for amendments! Perhaps it would be easiest to use your natural color on your application and when changing colors, simply allow plenty of time for enough to grow out to point out your roots, should anyone question the difference between the photo and the text. In a pinch, you could always carry a box of Nice 'n Easy which matches the photo and simply excuse yourself to the powder room if pressed for an explanation.

How about a passport for each possible hair color? Just take the one which fits the current look! Aliases might be necessary but a trip to the federal lockup is also a form of creative travel!
