A Small Victory in an Otherwise Security-Crazed World

Today, 6 months after divulging all my residences, my friends, my work experiences and practically my love life, I received security clearance (well, the most basic of security clearances). Which in my case just entitles me to keep my belt, shoes and bracelets on as I walk into work.

No longer will I need to be prey to suspicious security guards and touchy machines. I have proven with fingerprints, criminal background check, references and oaths that I am, in fact, reputable enough to avoid a metal detector.

Yay for D.C.!

Perhaps tomorrow I will wear a suit of armor to work- just because I can.
