I've been violated

Oct 7, 04:45 PM · from the mouth of Jake

Well I’m not going to go into the story and stuff, but I’ll give you guys a recap.

Last night my apartment was broken into. And the little bastards only took three basic things. My Nintendo GameCube, all my PS2 and GameCube games, and a bunch of coins. Some from my “private collection” and my loose change jar.

It’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve seen in a while. I’m fairly certain is was a bunch of idiotic kids. otherwise they would have stolen my Powerbook which was sitting 3 feet away. Though they might have tried and the little guy put up a fight. He is a wily little one.

So now I have to make sure I remember all the games I had, which would be easier if I played the darn things more often.

Luckily I carried over the renters insurance that I got last year with John (we needed it with all the stuff we broke during romps) so I’m covered for most of the stuff. I figure I’ll replace whatever games I’d still play and save the rest for a couple new ones and maybe extra controllers, etc (they stole those too).

And since I didn’t post anything last Friday. Everyone wish a happy mother trucking birthday to Jackie (jackie10286 -> yahoo dot com). ;)

    Dude I feel your pain.

    My last apartment got busted into when I was away for New Years this past year. They didn’t take much – my roommate’s X-box and my laptop basically. The laptop hurt: it had 3 semesters of my gradschool work on it, plus a year’s worth of digital photos. I learned my lesson there – I back up all my documents now! But on the bright side, they didn’t touch the several thousand dollars worth of instruments that I had in my room. My roommate had renter’s insurance, but unfortunately the company claimed that it didn’t cover any of my stuff, just his. And they would only pay half the cost of replacing our locks, the bastards. And the local police precinct lost our report, so we have no chance of ever catching our violators. I hope you have better luck.

    For what it’s worth, I think you should try out console emulators, if your computer is fast enough. You can download the games for free and it’s legal because you paid for them already!

    Dude that sucks. I’m sorry. At least you have renter’s insurance. We’re in the process of getting some ourselves.

    Man, that doth suck of the ass… I’m glad they only nabbed the easy to replace and relatively unimportant stuff. Still doesn’t make it any less annoying. Hope everything with the insurance and replacement goes well.
