Not-So-Grand Theft Auto

It's nice to see that even though we've only moved a couple streets across from our old house the tone of the neighbourhood has dropped dramatically. At any rate it didn't take long for our car to get broken into.

Satisfyingly the potential thieves - who had a choice of plundering sweet wrappers, some cassettes from the 80s (Now That's What I Call Music 6 ... classy), a couple of old magazines and a half-eaten Vegemite sandwich - got away empty handed. Fuel prices being what they are, there wasn't even any petrol in the tank for them to siphon out. Obviously unimpressed they left the door open so the interior could get rained on. Ho hum.

In other crime news, our dog dug a hole in the garden next to our back porch this morning, unearthing a large pile of 'exotic' cigarette butts. Good to see that even though she quit the force seven years ago, she's still got it.

Meanwhile it's still school holidays here, and keeping the kids amused is always a problem for parents. Yes, there are all those who argue that sitting the littlies down in front of the TV for an hour or two is a Bad Thing, but then again the alternative is to let them make their own entertainment.

Bet they wish they'd let him watch Ben 10 now.

Nope, no Venus. Was that on 5 maybe?

This one has such delights as Jan Hammer's Miami Vice Theme, Arcadia's Election Day and Lavender by Marillion (which I can't listen to any more without thinking of Angus Deayton running up a beach ...)
