there's two parts of it. one is the pretty thing in my passport which i still have which says it expires in december. the other is a piece of paper that says it expires in july. if i try to come in without the extra piece of paper, the french won't admit anybody with a less than six month visa unless they have a return ticket. which means i need to call the consulate in the morning. ebcause i am a motherfucking idiot. maybe they can fax it to me and i won't need to go see them two days in a row.
