Cracked Glass General Nonsense 17 JUL 2008

Broken WindowDamn, Chantelle was off to work quite early this morning, and there is nothing worse than getting to your car in the early hours of the morning before you are completely ready for the day, only to find the small back window at rear of your car smashed in, with glass scattered all over the seat on the inside.

Despite the guard patrols every now and then, access to Nagua Bay is a pretty simple thing thanks to opening up on the sea, and these miscreants obviously decided to take a bit of a chance last night. I checked around the parking lot and saw that they had first broke into an old Golf and stripped that out, and then they must have gone for Chantelle’s little green Getz, obviously targeting cars that shouldn’t have alarm systems installed.

Now Chantelle is sometimes what I like to call a poster child for potential theft victim, leaving things in plain view and just leaving her car radio in there for all to see, and obviously our nasty little gits decided it to be the perfect target and smashed the window in…

…which unfortunately for them must have triggered Chantelle’s alarm that Monty had installed a while ago and in doing so, scared the blighters off! We can count our lucky stars then because the radio is still sitting exactly where she left it and absolutely nothing else seems to have been taken from the car, meaning my hypothesis certainly does seem sound.

Hmm…, although, I didn’t check to see if any petrol was missing if I think about it now…

Man, one day I would love to lay my hands on someone I catch breaking into my car. I swear I’ll use them as a human jack while I change my tires! Grrr….

Oh Bovril! My Life 17 JUL 2008

Craig OlympusOlympus has an extremely cute but annoying way of eating off his mom and dad’s plates. Instead of just standing along the side and licking the inside out, our little boy gets right stuck into thing and walks across the entire plate to make sure that he doesn’t miss a single crumb.

As you can well imagine, this can lead to some rather sticky but funny messes, like yesterday’s ‘Bovril Incident’.

A nice lunch consisting of two pieces of toast, the one with Bovril and the other with my perennial favourite of ham, jam and cheese, all while watching a bit of anime on the computer, and one sneaky vulture hanging around the fringes as he always does when he suspects that we might be eating food without him.

My last bite of toast done, the vulture leapt onboard and proceeded to lick the plate as clean as a whistle, apart from the big patch of Bovril which he had managed to firmly tramp in. And of course, the minute everything was gone, off he stepped and proceeded to waddle around my desk and keyboard, leaving cute little Bovril footprints over everything!

Needless to say, daddy was less than happy and immediately picked up the offending miscreant and led him to mom who was off sick for the day, showed her the evidence and then proceeded to stick said kitten paws first in the handy bucket of rainwater in the middle of our room.

Needless to say, neither Olympus nor Chantelle were mightily impressed, but I thought it did the job nicely! :)
