Burglar update

June 23rd, 2008 No comments

Well the thieving pricks haven’t returned yet. Over the weekend I did a few things tho:

  • Hid all my spare keys.
  • Did an inventory of everything I have in the house (and put it on google docs rather than my PC).
  • Put a better latch on the side gate, and secured it with a large padlock.
  • Organised to have a home security system installed.

The last one is a pretty expensive option, but spending the entire day at work worrying about whether or not my house was being ransacked just wasn’t working out for me.

In other criminal-related news, I just received a letter and I have a question for you:

What’s the quickest/easiest way to get out of Jury duty??

I’m a contractor, I don’t get paid to do it and it could go for days or even weeks!! Is that enough of an excuse?

Somebody broke into my house yesterday and stole lots of my stuff. I no longer have an Xbox 360, PSP, camera or monitor for my PC. My girlfriend lost her laptop and a $20 hair straightener (why???).

I took the day off work today to have the police dust my place for prints (found none) and get the broken window replaced. I’m already done with feeling shithouse about this, time to start feeling lucky. They could have taken my TV (FARK!!), my computer… I have no backups (FAARRK!) or even found the spare key to my car and driven that away (FAAAARRRK!!!).

It’s like they only took stuff small enough to carry, so I reckon they were kids. They smashed the window in my spare bedroom to get in, went through all my cupboards and drawers, nicked what they wanted and then let themselves out the back door. I have security screens on my windows but the grill is only on the part that opens. The other side is just solid glass, so I’m thinking my security screens are pretty much irrelevant right now.

My mate Dave was kind enough to give me an old CRT so I’m back on the interwebs. It takes up a lot of room compared to my old flat screen so I’ve got it elevated on a 6-pack of beer. I’d take a photo, but I don’t have a camera anymore.

Oh, and they stole my aftershave. W T F.

Let’s hope I’m home next time they pop round. It’s legal to hit someone in the head with a hammer if you catch them breaking into your home right? Yeah.. I’m pretty sure it is.

Origin 2: QLD 30 – 0 NSW

Blitzkreig!! Ownership!! I dunno what to call it. Magic happens at Lang Park.. and last night Greg Inglis was the magician. A true champion.

Queensland were a different team compared to their performance in game 1. They had determination and passion, and the Blues were just outplayed and outclassed.

Don’t cry big fella.

And you’ve gotta love the response after Willie Mason (above) called the Queensland supportes a bunch of “Redneck Nutbags” earlier in the week. I especially liked this effort.

I’m mega-excited about decider in 3 weeks time, it’s going to be another one of those series. BRING IT ON!!

I got another invitation to a Wenatax meet sent to my DAD’S ADDRESS… AGAIN. After what happened last time, and I’m sure I asked them to take me off their list. Looks like once you are on these marketing lists you can never get off. :(

In other news, according to an article in the free metro-like paper we get on the train… apparently my handicap is lower than Justin Timberlakes. WHO’S BRING SEXY BACK NOW JT??

Awww yeah. :)
