Out of the Blue

Well look at that, it's June 1st already! This means E3 is next week, and summer starts in just a few weeks. It also means today is the deadline for MrsBlue to tell her work whether we are accepting their offer to relocate to the west coast. We vacillated wildly on making this decision, but at this point have decided we will decline, and continue to inflict our presence on the east coast. It's conceivable that they will go all Don Corleone on us and make her an offer she cannot refuse, but barring that we plan on staying put.

Heh, I figured out how useless locks were when I dabbled in lock picking/pick making. I picked my house's own front door in less than a minute on my first attempt with my own pick. Fact is if somebody *really* wants in them can just kick the door down or bash a window. Since most thievery happens while people are away at work you're pretty well screwed without an alarm system or some kind of reinforced windows and shit.

I think the biggest thing is that insurance companies will not reimburse without sign of forced entry. A broken down door is good evidence, but a fiddled-with lock isn't really. :/
