Yep ... some jerk wad came in my house today while I was at work and stole all my crap, including my camera. So I can't show you the grilled "chicken" and gravy, baked sweet potato, and home-canned green beans that I had for dinner tonight. In fact, I can't show you anything I eat until I find a camera replacement. I'm hoping my parents will loan me one of theirs.
The bastards also took my camcorder, my film cameras, all my DVDs (though they strangely decided to leave me all my seasons of Will & Grace on DVD ... how considerate of them), and my rings (two of which had a ton of sentimental value). They left my iMac, which is weird .... but good.
When I came home from work, my alarm was going off. Thinking I'd accidentally set it off somehow, I turned it off and put my stuff down. Then I noticed the DVDs were missing. And then the camera. And then everything else. Turns out, they came through my back window. It wasn't locked because the lock was broken, but I didn't know that until it was too late. I'm almost 99% sure it was my skeevy crackhead neighbors. And the cops think so too, but they can't prove anything yet.
Anyway, the worst part are the rings and the memory card on my camera. It had pictures on it dating back to this past April. And I'm bad about downloading them, so most are not backed up.
I'm trying to forget about it. But it's not easy. My memories are gone, and now I feel vulnerable. The window lock is fixed, and my dad is installing surveillance cameras. But nonetheless, I feel violated.
Don't give up on my blog though. I'll likely borrow a camera from my parents and get back to shooting my meals as soon as possible.
