In the other room, Vinny is playing with his new fish tank. Yes, playing. It was his birthday yesterday and I got my 37 year old husband a fish tank. I think he loves it(!) ...but that might be because he stopped maturing at the age of 9. I guess I'm ok with this, only because I stopped maturing at the age of 12. ha!
We're walking around like zombies today because, last night, after an incredible date (a delicious dinner, some book browsing, and a hilarious movie), we walked out to the theater parking lot and found the window of our car shattered...and my purse stolen. Do I ever leave my purse in the car? No! That's the shitty part. But last night it was heavy with birthday presents and books and so we decided I should just hide it under the seat and it would be fine. We were wrong. There were some little hoodlums hanging out by the theater when we went in and our guess is that they must have seen me lift my purse over the seat when I went to hide it. The other shitty part is that I actually had cash in my wallet (almost a 100 bucks--and I never have cash on me!). They were lucky little thieves.
But, despite the inconvenience of losing all the necessities a purse holds, I'm mostly bummed because they got away with Vinny's Edgar Allen Poe T-shirt (it was so awesome! my husband is Poe reincarnated) and the Helene Cixous book that I found at the used bookstore (a total score!). The sad part is that, since hoodlums are rarely literate (just a cynical assumption), they probably just threw that stuff out. Losers.
My new theory: improved literacy cuts crime!What do you think? I mean, really, the only thing I'm NOT worried about them using is my library card!
I was up until 2 am canceling credit cards and what-not. They got away with charging a tank of gas--hopefully nothing more. This morning I was so tired that I decided to reset my alarm clock. Uh-em...bad idea! I must have reset the clock instead because, after I was already showered and ready for work, I looked at the clock on my computer and realized that it was an hour EARLIER than I thought it was! Damn. I could have still been in bed! Hence, the zombie mode. Even coffee wasn't able to cure me.
Anyhoo...that's my story for the day. At least the fish tank looks cool.
