I feel sad and violated and stupid and frustrated. thieves broke into our warehouse over the weekend and stole a bunch of our tools - welders, oxy/acetylene setup, plasma torch, power tools.

^nah, the crew were fabulous - no worries there - it's just the warehouse district and shit like this happens out there.

we were lucky in a big way because even though they made off with thousands of dollars worth of tools, they left the audio equipment - that would have cost far, far more to replace - and they didn't trash the Jelly at all. I've lived in places where the burglars would fwk your shit up in addition to ripping you off, but these guys were just looking for stuff that would be quick to pawn.

we're all really sad but the community's pulling together - we can't get a security system installed by the end of today so we're having a mass sleepover with people and dogs and music there tonight - what an excuse for a party, eh?

Aw, that's a bummer, Lulu! Insurance...?
Prolly not.

But I'm glad the jelly is okay and that they didn't take it...My apartment was broken into several years ago, and in addition to all the electronics/computer, they took this lamp that I made.

I thought it was funny that they apparently liked it. The jelly would make a far, far cooler lamp.

Bummer Lukku - I'm so sorry that happened to you.
As i told my husband today right after we missed the last flight home out of Newark (train was delayed and we were stupid and had only allotted three hours to get from Manhattan to Newark airport for the last flight to Portland until Wednesday) "everyone should have our problems. We have no real problems." We're in good health. Nobody has stolen anything from us. Kids are fine and being taken care of by neighbors. Now, the guy we happened to check in with at the same time - he was mad. He'd left his car in their lot here and now it was so damaged he couldn't open the door to his car.

So I am delighted to report that we are currently in a Best Western in New Jersey, overlooking a used car lot, and what looks suspiciously like an adjacent dump.
With some imagination, it could even be said that we have an excellent view of the "pond."
And we're on standby for a 5 am flight, which, I'm told, has a huge drop-out rate, so we have a reasonable chance, maybe. Could be worse. It occurs to me that we could possibly be stuck here for days like the guy that we talked to at the shuttle stop is. But there are vending machines and life is pretty good.
Besides, New York was way too fun, and if this hadn't happened, I might not have been quite so happy to go home. Now we'll be appropriately stoked.

brynnie, hope you're home safe by now!

I am at the warehouse again - working on my projects is the only thing that makes me feel better about the break in. staying here tonight as well- no security yet, no power. got our dogs, cellphones, and blunt instrument weapons though I doubt we will be fwked with tonight either

I feel like i'm strapped to an emotional rollercoaster but I also feel like something good will come out of all of this eventually.

I feel like I need to quit this one particular thing. If I could let myself do it half-assed, I could do it, but I can't. It's either be whole-assed, which I do not have the means or will to do, or quit.

I think I need to take the luxury of being unreliable, just in this one area.

Wow! It IS a cultural thing!
Flat white on Wikipedia
I had no idea the terminology of coffee is different in America and Europe.

But if they call a flat white a caffe latte, what do they call a caffe latte?
