funny,just the other day I watched the news and they were telling people during the holidays to keep their GPS systems out of view while Xmas shopping. They also recommended not keeping home addresses programed into them...so the crooks also won't rob your home. I thought about it, and kept mine down under my seat. They also reported that shopping bags should be kept out of view at all times- locked away in the trunk. So I started shoving work bags under the seat and folding over the top
But ALAS...they still got me good. The city came and asked me to move my car from my safe little drive the other day. They were tearing down a neighbor's dead tree. I of course obliged and moved it 250 feet around the corner (near the park) The rest of that scenario is grim. Add a little early sunset and then POW--crime. They took everything, the GPS my boyfriend bought me, phone charger, EVERY single c.d. that anyone ever made me (including Valley Girl Soundtrack-and misc. pals mixed tracks. I mean who wants home made discs super scratched of Bat for Lashes where only the first 5 songs play? They scored big, took off with 2 bags of rental returns from the show- (including an Urban Outfitters giant bag filled with new clothes with tags), my favorite vintage white hat with huge feather, random art work, sketch pads- and who knows what else? I feel so bummed and violated and can't stop replaying how I could've prevented this. I did all the right things and yet they still decided to break in. It's always been those "shoulda woulda coulda" thing that have driven my ocd nuts. I replay the details like...if I just would've left for the bank a little sooner... or if I just would have left that thing at work... WHY didn't I take my favorite jewelry out of the glove box?
It's not like any of it matters now. I'm just in need of a good therapist perhaps to cope with the losses. I can only hope that the criminals are looking fierce walking around the streets of Echo PArk and somehow clutching their sides from the karma cramps.
But REALLY... what do I care? I just had the nicest Thanksgiving holiday regardless and I'am not gonna let this silly crime get me down. Because I have a magical news flash coming your way- and a spring in my step that is unstoppable! This is going to be the best SPRING break of all time. And for now some good hints for my darling blog readers...
