I have a lot of practice, because not only do I have $50 library fines on my own card from the city public library, but I have a similar fine at the county library.
So a $93 bill on my (almost) stepdaughter's account was barely even a challenge.
But almost anyone can accomplish this heroic feat if they put in adequate effort. This how it's done, folks:
-Send two children on a school field trip with their (almost) stepsister's library cardHouston is particularly unfriendly in the credit report area. Business around here tend to send people to a credit agency at the drop of a hat, even the public library.
-Keep all 9 books well past the due date, and even past the end of their school project
-Carefully count and return the books without realizing that one book actually went home from the library with another child
-Have a random child give your boy the book back, unrequested, after already having pleaded one's case with the library and having been threatened with creditors
It does have its advantages though. For example, in Houston, when it rains it pours. And when it pours, the crawfish come scampering out of the school parking lot:I'm not sure why they were in such a hurry though. It's a Jewish school, after all, and those guys aren't even kosher.
Plus, Houston has The International Festival. We saw Joe Ely and Ozomatli, who were both absolutely fantastic.
I can't speak to how popular Ozomatli is or isn't but there was a big crowd and many of them seemed to know the lyrics. I can speak to the fact that they put on an absolutely incredible show, and it's worth seeing whether or not you like what they've released on CD.
My sweet pea had an art opening.Hers are the ones on the right, up above her left shoulder.
That's about it except I have a never ending supply of papers I have to write and I travel for work today. I'd totally advise you to rob my house, but as it turns out, everyone else will still be here.
Have a good weekend everyone!
