    Cool I won the lottery!

    No, I'm still not rich.

    I am "among those randomly selected and registered for further consideration in the DV-2007 diversity immigrant program for fiscal year 2007".

    Nothing certain yet, though.

    I suspect some of you will be rolling their eyes, thinking something like "Great, another immigrant." Well, guilty as charged.

    On the bright side,
    • I am not illegally jumping the border
    • I can speak, read and write English reasonably well
    • I will not (I repeat: NOT) fly the German flag over the American Flag
    • I will not be a welfare leech
    • I will leave any stupid socialist ideas behind.
    • I will join the NRA as soon as possible.


    Wish me luck, please!

    Welcome hopefully soon to the US. Have you though about where you would like to live? Any family or friends here already?

    I guess that was a silly question, you have a whole bunch of friends right here on CC.

    Good luck.

    No problem at all since you put it that way and laid it out as to your intentions. I don't go for the A typical border jumpers that are NOT legal and are NOT doing things right, you are well intentioned and that's all one can ask.

    Wish you all the luck.

    We'll keep our fingers crossed for you. I'll likely visit your country next weekend when I'm in the Netherlands. Plan to hop across the border for a bit of a visit.

    Ibex - that's great.

    Well - I came in the legal ''hard way'' and am proud to be an American Citizen. May you manage the whole course and achieve the same.

    Keep us posted on how it all shapes up.
