More Paperwork

I got a call back from the city's deputy commissioner of revenue this morning and it turns out she thought I needed help, rather than permission to turn the exemption application in late because I got home too late.

I'm doing laundry -- another large batch, I think -- and plan to spend more time straightening up the workroom.

The WashPost has two interesting articles today: One on our brief sun starts with a quote from Bradbury's "All Summer in a Day" and another is about the Shanghai six-story adult Barbie shop.
