Hi, I was robbed by a Luddite. Or maybe someone who wants me to buy an iPod.

Thursday, November 06, 2008

This is very odd--but someone stole the cd player out of my car.

And I'm not talking an actual mounted-in-the-car cd player. I mean one of those really old portable ones. The kind you have to connect to the car stereo using a thingy for the tape player. (yes! my car is *that* old!)(and yes! I am a master of highly technical terms like "thingy!")

I can't figure out why anyone would want an eight-year old cd player. Especially since whoever took it left all the car connection stuff and the player itself was....well, it was held together by duct tape because I dropped it when I was getting something out of the car last year.

Anyway, should someone come up to you and offer you a really sweet deal on an ancient cd player that only works if you kind of wiggle the duct-taped part of it around....

Wait, no one's going to want that.

Weirdest theft EVER.

My sister has to use the cassette to hook up her iPod to stereo as well.

If I were a theif I would want an iPod not an ancient cd player! That doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

Haha, that is just bizarre! I've actually seen a good number of people on the bus using them though. It seems anyone on a bus must be listening to music for some reason, i guess they think people won't talk to them then!

Very weird...Maybe you accidentally misplaced it because stealing something like that isn't even logical. LOL

Yikes that is an odd theft. It could have just been some kid. Some aren't too smart. lol.

I shall keep my eyes peeled for that CD player. Maybe it will make it's way all the way out to Oregon. Wouldn't that be interesting. =)

Ha. I haven't seen a cd player in years. You should thank whoever stole it. Now you can transition into the new century with everyone else.

It is SO weird. I still can't figure out who would say, "Oh! An old cd player! I MUST have that!"

But, as A Literate Musician points out, perhaps now I can take that step forward and get myself something like an iPod (every time I've given one away, I've drooled over it, that's for sure!)

Haha. That's weird. Maybe the person who stole it was a fan of yours and wanted anything that has to do with you. I just hope he or she doesn't stalk you if that's the case..

just kidding! Take care anyway! :) And I love your book Stealing Heaven! :D
