Answering Brandywine's Random Roll Call

Nasty LJ is not letting me post to anyone's journal today. However, I just wanted to say that I'm here and I'm not going anywhere. I may not comment as much as I should, but I'm still around.

Question about CA seat belt law

I was wondering if anyone from California could help me. I looked it up on-line and the way I understand it is that it is the law to wear a seat-belt in California. Can you be pulled over if that is the only thing you're doing wrong? If I remember correctly, when the law was passed in my state you were not supposed to be pulled over if you are not breaking any other traffic laws. However, I know first-hand that is not the case anymore.

Thanks for the help, and yes...I am actually working on Twist of Fate. Shocking, isn't it?

Round Robin Fic

Title: What Goes Around
Background: Post "The Girlfriend." Angst, AU, and PG rating (so far).
Ground rules: This is a round robin fic. The first person to claim it in a comment writes the next part and posts it as soon as they want or at least by... hopefully next week. The installment can be any length, change style, genre, POV, and go in any direction at all. That's the fun of it! :)
Disclaimer: None of us own any of the characters, unless we invent some original ones. So far, I haven't.
Anne's note: loracj was kind enough to look my part over for me. I tinkered just a teeny bit, so any mistakes are all mine and not in any way her fault.

I'm late. I'm late for a very important date.

Yeah, big shocker, I've missed my one week deadline for chazper 's Round Robin Fic. The good news is that I have actually got it written and it's already been sent to loracj. So hopefully you'll see something in a few days.

Sorry about the delay. I'm a bad, bad writer.

Twist of Fate: Chapter 17

Title: A Twist of Fate
Ratings/Warnings: No warnings
Beta: loracj. Much thanks to her as always. She had a very good and valid suggestion that could have made this a better chapter. However, I have my limitations and I just couldn’t make it work. Perhaps, if I ever got any sleep....but I digress. Anyway, through no fault of her own, you are stuck with my inferior version of the chapter. I did a LOT of tinkering after she sent it back. I should have had her take another look, but like the last chapter I’m sick of this one, too. So all grammatical errors are mine and mine alone.
Special Thank You: I need to give special thanks and hugs to willwork4dean, and especially fredsmith518. Without them the last couple of paragraphs from Ryan’s point of view would have just plain stunk.
More hugs and thanks to themus_revenge. She read through this for me and petted my ego. Without her support, I would have deleted this whole chapter and started anew.
Disclaimers: I own nothing in relation to The O.C. All mistakes are mine.
Summary: Beginning of Season 1, AU, In The Pilot, Kirsten asks Sandy “What if this is all a scam? What if he’s just using you to case the house?” In this story it is the truth, but not by Ryan’s choice. For the purposes of this story Dawn is dead and there never was a Trey

Question about foreign currency

Hello everyone. I was wondering if anyone could help me with a tax return question one of my friends is having problems with.

She has a new client, a single guy in his late twenties.  His parents are originally from Sweden, but have lived in the U.S. for all of his life. Over the years they have made investments in his name.  Anyway, my friend has information regarding  stock dividends. Basically, we are too stupid to read the paper. For example, if we have the number thirty thousand two hundred forty-eight dollars and twenty cents it looks like 30,248.20. The paper she has shows the number 30.214,20. The comma and decimal are switched. Is that the same number? It is shown above the words Saldo inkl. ranta. Or at least that's what it looks like. The fax is not very clear. 

If anyone could enlighten us stupid lazy Americans I would greatly appreciate it.

How would you describe the sound of footsteps; big heavy footsteps of a certain villainous character?
Also, let's say that  these footsteps coincided or joined in with something else. Would you just say that these two things coincided or that they were in sync. or what?

Hope this made sense. Much thanks in advance.
