new cd player!

If you're a long time reader, you've probably noticed comments (generally derogatory) that I make towards my car and the cd player contained within. If you're not a long time reader, here's a general overview for you: since purchasing my car approximately 18 months ago, it's been vandalised, stopped working & made strange noises (the mechanic couldn't find anything wrong with it), then the motor literally blew up around 6 months ago. As for the CD player, let's say it's the mix master of all cd players - it loves nothing more than to play 2 seconds of one song followed by 2 seconds of another, then back to the original song....or hey let's just play the entire song, but out of order!

Basically, it's been a constant source of stress since purchasing. (I really should learn to trust God more...)

Then, yesterday morning, I was woken up by a loud knock on the front door. I went to the door, surprised to find two police officers there. I thought that they may have been there for either of my flatmates (they're both police officers), but no, they were there for me. It turns out that some kind person had taken my car for a little drive on Wednesday night. We're not sure how far they took it, as it was left in the middle of the road just down from my house, but they'd smashed the lock, stripped the steering column and destroyed the ignition. And, they'd taken my CD player, complete with the new Switchfoot CD.

The Good news? It's all covered by insurance (except for the CD), AND I've got a fancy rental car for the next 2 weeks until it's fixed! - and that includes a new CD player!!!

Woo HOO!
