David was moving last weekend.  His old apartment, well, let’s say, isn’t very secure.  (The back door doesn’t even lock.)  So his apartment was robbed mid-move.  They took his computer, his TV, his roommate’s fiancee’s engagement ring, some expensive miniatures, and a bunch of odds and ends that I have no idea why they wanted (a cheap tent, some sun block, two laundry baskets, etc.).

All that wouldn’t be so odd… except they came back.  Twice.  The second time, they took extra odds and ends.  The THIRD time……..  they returned stuff.  Only two things that we know of: a folder which contained some papers for a roleplaying game (valuable to us, not so much to them), and ONE of the seven beers they took. (They liked the guinness, the schlafly pilsner, not so much, apparently.)  They also spraypainted stuff, but very kindly only painted over posters, not actually on the walls.  WEIRDness.

Anyway, since they took David’s computer, he needs a new one.  So, because he loves me very very much and I’ve been wanting a laptop forever, he is taking my computer, and I get a very very shiny ThinkPad X61.  My main demand was that the laptop be extremely light, which it is (3.11 lbs), but it’s pretty shiny in other ways (not so much in  battery life….).  It’s SHINY!  I get it next week.  And then have to drive to see David again and give him my computer.  Or mail him the laptop temporarily.
