So, I was watching Veronica Mars. Veronica mentioned something about recycling passports on eBay. So of course, I was curious, and had to check.

Well, I didn't find any actual passports, but I did discover that it is apparently the trendy thing in Europe to buy your passport its very own leather jacket, aka: a passport holder. I have never heard of a passport holder. I clicked on the category, thinking, there'll be... three. How many people really need an extra holder for a passport? Really?

Ladies and gentlemen, there are, in fact, Hello Kitty passport holders.

Need I really add: o.O

My parents always exhort me to encase my passport in a passport holder. (I still use the one they gave me, never having opportunity to get another.) The difference between using one and not is surprising: my first (Indonesian, holdered) passport is in fairly good condition, my second (Indonesian, non-holdered) is battered beyond belief, and my current (Singaporean, holdered) is bearing up nicely under near constant abuse (which will continue until I stop procrascinating and get a state ID so I can buy beer).

I've never seen anything other than plain black/brown or clear plastic, though. I'd get a Hello Kitty passport holder except that this would probably lead my suspicious-looking self into a small room with persistent and firm uniformed people who question me about ties to certain newsworthy countries and if I am or have ever been a member of the Communist Party.

I guess it just puzzles me, what with using my own passport like, once every two years or so, and on that topic I think it's expired, too. o.O

Just. Hello Kitty. There were also Barbie ones, which frankly I found a lot more unsettling.
