Stupid Thieves

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 26, 2009, 1:42 PM



My mom is in town for the week, so I took today off from work.  We had these great plans to go take some family pictures of my wife, daughter, and me (my mom's idea) and then we were going to spend the rest of the day visiting various waterfalls in the Columbia River Gorge.  I was excited about taking pictures of the falls I haven't seen yet (not so much about the family photos).  Well, neither of those happened.  We got everything ready this morning and went out to my car to find that a window was broken and my stereo was gone.  Actually, it wasn't just my stereo but the entire center console where the stereo was mounted.  So I spent the morning on the phone with the police, the insurance, and the auto glass shop.  Not the day I was hoping for.  There goes some of my new camera or lens money...

And it's my birthday tomorrow, so my wife was joking that now she knows what to get me as a present.

DUDE! That sucks so much! I'm glad your camera stuff wasn't in the car as well, but still. That just really sucks. How has the rest of the time with your mom been? You got plans for your birthday tomorrow? So i just realized this, but my dad's birthday is today, yours is tomorrow... and my mom's birthday is june 3rd and dan milewski's birthday is the day before hers. Its just crazy that two of my roommates birthdays are within one day of my parents birthdays... completely random and useless story, brought to you by niel4...

I never keep my camera stuff in the car. And yes, it sucks. SUCKS SUCKS SUCKS SUCKS!

Anyway, I'm not sure what's going on tomorrow. We might go to the coast and hang out over there all day. I really want to go to the gorge sometime, but am not willing to go on the weekend. Way too many people to fight through for parking, and I'd have to shove them out of the shot. Guess I'll have to take another day off sometime. I'll let you know if I do, in case you want to come hang out with us.

auch, I'm sorry mate... It happened to me once, but I got 2 windows destroyed and my CD collection + stereo stolen...

I'm glad that my glove box was locked. My ipod was inside and connected via a cable to the stereo. Luckily they missed that.
