My long weekend started off nicely. I went to a pumpkin patch and a corn maze on Thursday (pictures), and it was lovely. On Friday I saw the Decemberists, and they put on a fine show as usual. My friend and I were going to buy tickets for the New Pornographers the next day, but it was cancelled. We went to hang out, and my car got broken into. (pictures) HOORAY! So awesome. They took the crappiest cd player on the planet, I swear. And some of my favorite cds, without cases. AND two boxes of Viactiv Calcium Chews. Wow, that's some hardcore thievery - your next outing will not be thwarted by threats of osteoporosis, for sure. They left a Harry Potter book, my map book, my umbrella, and a few random cds. I'm gonna list the cds they stole, just for my inventory. I probably won't replace most of them since I won't be getting any insurance money from this (not enough lost to offset the deductible), but hopefully I can get burned copies from friends for the ones I don't have on my computer.

Sleater-Kinney - Dig Me Out, The Woods
The Decemberists - Picaresque, Her Majesty
Beulah - When Your Heartstrings Break
Mirah - C'mon Miracle, Advisory Committee, You Think It's Like This But Really It's Like This
Neutral Milk Hotel - In The Aeroplane Over the Sea
That Dog - Retreat From the Sun
Ted Leo and the Pharmacists - The Tyranny of Distance, Shake the Sheets
Sufjan Stevens - Illinois, Michigan
The Arcade Fire - Funeral
Hockey Night - Keep Guessin'
The Microphones - The Glow Pt. 2
Belle and Sebastian - If You're Feeling Sinister
The Shins - Oh, Inverted World
Architecture in Helsinki - In Case We Die
Q and Not U - Different Damage
Elliott Smith - Either/Or
A. C. Newman - The Slow Wonder (case too)
The Blow - The Concussive Caress
The New Pornographers - Twin Cinema

Urgh. Some people, I swear. I took care of my window, now I just have to figure out the stereo business. I'm tired.

Aww, you look so cute and happy with that pumpkin!

Sounds like you had a happy weekend, aside from your car, which is sad. I'm surprised people actually bother to steal CDs and car stereos these days -- it seems like far too much effort. My advice: only keep copies in the car as a 5¢ CD-R is a lot cheaper to replace than a $15 CD and then your originals don't get scratched up either.

And stealing the calcium chews? That is beyond weird.

I can send you Sleater-Kinney!!! You know I can! And maybe I can see if Brendan has any of the others...I'm pretty sure he might and I can send those, too! I LOVE YOU AND HATE ASSHOLES!
