When even walking downtown to pay your property taxes is a pleasant experience.

Got stopped the other day and given a warning ticket for expired registration (which I'm historically really bad about). So, I go online to the DMV to update my registration, and there's a block for failure to pay county property taxes (which I'm also generally pretty bad about). This time, I think I've paid my taxes, but given my history, I decide to trust the computer and wander downtown a couple of blocks, in the glorious weather, to pay the Man.

Get there, and lo and behold, I HAVE paid my property taxes - they just haven't told DMV. So, the county computers talk to the state computers, and for once, whacking through bureaucratic red tape is as easy as a walk through the park - literally.

What a lovely day.

Well, at least this time I didn't have to come get you out of jail! *hugs*

Yeah, have I thanked you for that lately? :-) Being thrown in jail is one of those character-building experiences, but face it, I've got oodles and oodles of character. I've got character I'm not even using at the moment.

Have to admit, though, avoiding getting arrested again made a GREAT excuse for missing Crim Law the next day!

You do indeed have oodles and oodles of character!

And I like your new icon!

You should - you know the maker!
Probably need to get with you on making/acquiring more icons - I can tell this particular addiction is getting worse, not better.
