Colour me freaking shocked
No details yet, but we received a call from a Detective saying they have the names of the boys who jumped my kid and some of the gear is recovered. Holy crap - never expected them to find out anything, figured it’d just be another crime in an ever growing city. As I said, the details were lacking at this point, but the expect to call my son in within a week for a photo line up. I can see...
..and in completely unrelated news..
I have my very first re-blog. I feel special :)
Things seem to be starting to get back to normal. The boy has freaking amazing friends and is doing quite fine. All “officials” involved have been wonderful - police, middle of the night insurance company, insurance adjuster.. just wonderful. Yesterday I finished my running around for the final two missing reciepts and quotes from my two favourite camera shops for replacement cost on...
If I was any better, I'd be twins..
Despite my teenaged son being jumped by a gang of four kids and having everything on him stolen - iPod, wallet, cell phone, and close to $10,000 worth of my camera gear - this is how I’m feeling today. Yes, I’m upset that this happened to him. Worried about how he’s handling it. But physically, he’s ok. Yes, I lost all of my precious camera gear that is such a part of my...
Sometimes, i hate the world
I got a midnight call from the city police tonight. That’s never any good. It starts off with “your son is ok - we have him with us”. I must admit, my first thoughts for this almost 17 year old kid were “holy hell, what’d he do?!” He did nothing. Back up a few hours. Beautiful late afternoon, fall day, he went out to take pictures. He loves taking...
(via cameronchristopher) You have awesome...
cameronchristopher: I’m going to d.c. :) thanks mom and dad! WOOHOOO! My husband and I are coming down from Canada for it! Trip is booked, I had to cash in some stocks to do it but it’s well worth it :)

…and one-by-one, justice is finally served. Does it make me really cold that my first reaction upon reading this was a very calm “good”?
"The IT Crowd" pretty much sums up what every tech...
borgomani: Including Tumblr’s. (I loved that sitcom though) Love this show! My kids will soon be able to recite the lines, I watch it so much

OUCH! OMG, my almost 9 pounder nearly killed me - I said the immortal words to the nurse “I don’t care about the baby, take it out in pieces!!”
This week I’m working Friday/Saturday/Sunday over nights (6pm-6am) Today I was asked to log in for a “quick meeting” at 1pm. I did, figured what the heck, a few hours OT would be great. However, the “quick meeting” had me logged in and working from 1pm-8pm before I was able to log out. THEN, the dispatch manager calls from a conference she’s at in another...
Woohoo! I just bought a new Netbook for our trip to Washington DC (and subsequent trips anywhere else to follow). I’ve hauled my big-ass laptop all over North America and I don’t have to ever do it again :) In the past, it’s been either haul the laptop or pay crazy stupid roaming charges on the Smart Phone. This little Asus is so small it’ll fit in my larger Coach bags...
It's the last Sunday of summer...
borgomani: (via inothernews) And it’s the last Sunday of winter :) I are sad I don’t mind fall. Ok, fall sucks here. You go from green to yellow. We don’t get any of the awesome colours that the east get. But what I hate most is that it’s wind down to winter time. :(
