as it goes..

Getting all moved in this past week and settled up was quite busy. Basically moved to a bigger apartment on Saturday morning, but wait let's back up to Friday night.

Friday night I started taking things over to the new bigger apartment b/c the 1 bedrm by the pool was just too small. So in the afternoon and evening I start moving some things. By about 7:30pm I see myneighbor from downstairs talking to his son in the parking garage and showing off his new motorcycle so I go say Hi and check it out. After talking with them for a few mins. I head back up to the apt for the night, which is about 7:45pm. Off to sleep and only to wake up at 6:50am to an email message saying my Bank account has irregular activity. I immediately hope on the computer and check things out and see that someone has hacked my bank account debit card, which has happened before in the past. So I go down stairs to the parking garage b/c I remembered I had my wallet in the car, (see where this is going) As I walk up to the car I basically see this:

and utter fuck! are you kiddn` me!! My passenger side window is smashed! I open the drivers door and immediately look to the back of my Murano as my Tri bike is still (thank God) in the back! I then look for my wallet and notice the glove box is open and then I see my wallet and Oakley's are gone! Bastards! So now I know why my bank account has been used. I go back upstairs and call the banks, all my credit cards and shut things down. 2hours later after calling the police to file a report over the phone, yes, over the phone, remember this LA there not coming out for a smash and grab I am done with all this nonsense. It was weird that I was talking to the neighbor and he was telling me that several people have had there cars broken into and a motorcycle was stolen from the "secured" parking garage. Not only that but this happened between 7:45pm and before 9pm b/c the first transaction on my bank account was at Trader Joes and they close at 9pm! So these were Health Conscious robbers, punks!

Bottom line they took my wallet with no cash in it but got my credit cards, tried using a couple but it didn't work and basically only got about $60 from my bank account which I will get back. They got my drivers license, ss card, picture of Pope John Paul ( I love that picture) and my sunglasses and few other things that are not to worry about.

It could have been worse, taking the bike, my Nike shoes, my ipod in the center counsel, and my check book. It cost my $200 to get the damn window fixed though and that was out of pocket being as insurance deductible is $500.

Welcome to California!!! (bitches..)

Finally got the apartment moved that morning and went to an Angels baseball game that night and hung out. What a day!

This week I have ran 2 times which is good, lifted weights along with some cardio and last night went to the Manhattan Beach Bikram Yoga which will be the new hot yoga home. That's some good stuff and although I am sore today I think I may go back tonight. Hey, its $30 for a week, intro price so gotta take advantage of it.

DUDE! That blows!

$200!

It sucks when it comes out of your pocket. I know how much that money means right now.

Keep at the workout and keep the security up too!

That sucks donkey nuts!

I hope you get all the paperwork...new license, ss card, etc taken care of painlessly.

Good thing the idiot didn't know what the bike was worth. He is hocking the sunglasses but not the bike...

I agree about this bike. What morons, but very lucky for you.

The whole thing BLOWS, from the loss of the cash to the time it will take to put things right!

Hopefully this will be the one and only time that something like this happens.
