You know I cannot remember if I announced it.

Was sworn in 8th August 08-08-08
Registered to vote and applied for Passport same day.
Passport arrived on the 16th, so I now legally hold two passports

If you're gonna eat anywhere in Toms River, it has to be Rivoli's on Fischer. Great little place, huge portions, and the owner's a huge Opie and Anthony fan (always a plus for me ). I didn't get to try Basil T's across from Ocean County Mall but I've heard nothing but good about that place too. Maybe on a future visit back up.
