Friday Five

  1. I turned my library book in on the "Day of Grace" and was charged a late fee. What? When I went to pay, I asked why they didn't have a Day of Grace. Every (American) library I've used offered this benefit. Turns out a patrol that this policy was unfair because not everyone knew about it, and he took his complaint all the way to city hall. So now the library charges late fees the first day past due. Why would anyone complain about a policy designed to give customers a break? It must take a grumpy person to wage a battle against grace.

  2. I'm only in the first chapter of My Life in France by Julia Child, and I already love it!

  3. Even though it was abrupt, I enjoyed the seasonal temperatures this week. I actually got so cold at night, I had to close my window, turn down my fan and add a blanket. It makes me happy.

  4. Plaid really is back, isn't it? It makes me feel old that fashion styles from my lifetime are cycling back.

  5. I'm Team Jacob.

Hate to break it to you, but I've never heard of the "day of grace" - I know Dallas doesn't do that. Actually I thought you were referring to the book you were returning :)

#5 - seriously?! Not a fan from the beginning and then he majorly ticked me off in book 3.

I always liked Jacob, but I also think Robert Pattison's awful movie Edward has damaged his character for me.

Really? Grand Prairie, Irving, Lubbock and Waco have all had a Day of Grace.
