Other crap that's on my mind.

A website about things you probably don't care about, but I do so shove it.

House Broken.

I was supposed to get my ipod delivered to the house yesterday. But I had forgotten to leave the signed door tag, that permitted the fedex guy to just drop it off in which it would have been left alone on the doorstep for a few hours. I actually came home around 11 to see if I could beat the fedex guy, but I was too late. Another doortag was left there, reminding me that this was their second attempt. I cursed myself for forgetting such a simple thing and decided I wouldn't let it happen again. So, I called fedex and found where it would be and decided to pick up my beautiful music machine after I worked out. While driving to Livonia (about 30 minutes away), I get a call from Steve. Thinking it would be a, "what do you want for dinner call", I picked it up thinking I'd say, "something with tofu is fine". But instead Steve said, "Can you come home? The house was broken into. The cops are here now and they want to talk to you." I immediately forgot that I where I was, where I was driving to and if I actually was indeed driving. All things just stopped for a second. I was already half way to Livonia, so I decided to just keep going to pick up my ipod and then head home to where I only imagined everything of mine was destroyed.

Luckily, nothing was. Nothing was even stolen. Not my jewelry. Not my guitar. Not even the Omega watch my dad gave me that must be 30 years old, just sitting in plain view for anyone to take. The house was just a mess. Underwear and clothes everywhere. Bed flipped. It was nuts.

So, I'm at work now. But I'm going home. Didn't really sleep well, thinking every noise was these people coming back. I even brought my jewelry (and ipod of course) to work today.

Ugh...that sucks...Sorry about the break in. On a brighter note, sometimes I'll have things delivered to me at work instead of home and avoid the inevitable forgetting to sign thingy.
