|Burglary 6, or Justice 1
Mad Scientess Jane Expat
I just heard from the police.
They got a match on the DNA from the blood they found in my room, and it's no one we know.
I am going to enshrine that box of thumbtacks.
You know, I don't think I've ever seen a full episode of CSI.
that's great news :) The police actually do their job, that's excellent
Oh yes, they've been very good about this. Lots of follow-up and referrals to to victim support, etc.

It arrived today! Whee, thank you! Now, to inflict it on my officemates. :-D

Holy shit, that is AWESOME. Did anything come of the laptop on eBay?
Yes, it is fairly unusual and pleasing.
The laptop turned out not to be mine. (One of the specs was wrong, I discovered later.)
/takes notes, buys more thumbtacks
And put them in a breakable container.
My brain must be slowing down with age. Because it seriously took me 30 minutes to figure out why you weren't saying, "So, thankfully, I wasn't burgled by anybody I know."
Now let's hope they can find the person, and recover some of your stuff...
I'm hoping for the former, but not holding out much for the latter. It's rare that stuff gets recovered, and I'd rather let go of my emotional attachment to it quickly.
And the lesson is, Beware the Ninja Thumbtacks!
That's wonderful news, but I do find a little disturbing that they just had DNA on file for people, criminals or otherwise.
I think an icon of tdj
's provides an appropriate response here.
Hopefully they will be caught. That will teach them to be nasssty little thieveses.

They should have to sit on a large thumbtack for days, the little freelance socialists.
