Let's review the last 18 months for a minute:
January, 2008 - my apartment is burglarized by members of the landlord's work crew. They've cased my unit at least twice before the burglary, and stole easily fencible but mostly outdated goods, one of which was stored out of sight under my bed.
May, 2008 - my grandma dies on the day of my birthday party.
December, 2008 - my dad dies. And then I get mono.
January-June, 2009 - I'm working odd hours and my employer routinely screws up my paychecks. I end up having to write large reimbursement checks as a result of HR errors.
July 21, 2009 - some asshole with incendiary devices decides to try to set my building on fire in the middle of the night. And blocks the entrance in an effort to take all the residents down with the building.
In the last 48 hours many friends have asked what could possibly go wrong next. Locusts is the only thing left.
