Car All Better Now

Monday, February 25th, 2008

Last week I managed to get my car window fixed, replaced the stereo, and bought an iPod. Yes, I am now one of the Cult of iPod. I got myself an iPod Classic 80GB. It’s so purdy!

Last weekend, the gang and I went to Badier’s birthday party, which was a lotta fun. It was also a party not at our house, which was nice for a change of pace. =)

My Poor, Poor Car

Saturday, February 9th, 2008

To get right to it, someone broke into my car. It was parked at home in our complex’s “secured” parking. The perp broke my back quarter panel window, popped the lock, opened the driver-side door, grabbed my mp3 player and the face to my stereo and took off. No one saw this happen, including myself. I didn’t learn about it until Megs called me at work after she saw the damage this afternoon when she first went out to her car. Here are some pictures:

Burglary III

After reviewing the damages, I called 1) the police, 2) my apartment manager, and 3) my insurance company. None of them were of much help, which is about what I expected. I don’t carry full coverage on such an old car, so the stereo is a bust. The mp3 player should be covered under my renter’s insurance policy, though.

So yeah. Great way to start my birthday weekend. =(
