Or, how my bike got stolen and how I stole it back.

Quick note: This story originally was posted as-it-happened on Tumblr, but here’s the whole thing compiled together. It was then a Medium post, but here it is on my site.

Part 1: Monday. Well, this is ridiculous.

First, take a look at my bike. Looks like a normal bike, right?

A picture of my bike from months ago. This is known as “The Georgetown Bike Rack”.

 

On Friday night, amidst trying to walk a dog and get a sick girlfriend home, I locked my bike outside my apartment to a small fence outside the building instead of lugging it into the bike room in my building (which has been largely blocked by maintenance people’s stuff).

Some time between Saturday and Sunday, the bike was stolen. I was upset. In fact, I still am upset. There’s the money, sure. But moreover, it was stolen from outside where I live. There is theft in my neighborhood, and apparently locking up a bike isn’t enough.

My girlfriend Kristen was kind enough to help me start to get things in order, and on Monday put in a police report for the bike, and I mentally tried to move on. It was kinda working.

But here’s where it gets infinitely more interesting. ↓ Read the rest of this entry…

If you’re curious the position, I bet Rossmom will post it in the comments.

Yay.

Hey guys! Yeah, you can follow my not-having-power debacle on Twitter. In short, no power in my apartment last night and had to take off work to get it settled. So things are a little behind, but I’ll get a new comic up as soon as I can. Hopefully tonight.

He likes his drinks shaken because he's going through withdrawal.

Big props to Clay Yount, who pretty much wrote this comic for me. If you’re not reading his amazing webcomic Hamlet’s Danish (which updates once a week, has a bit of an archive already, and is amazing) you really should be.

Yep, the heading says it all. Going to post more about it in the future, but thank you to all who came by and said hello, bought books, and made the show such a good one. Thank you.
