2 a.m.
Posted by Sam at 11:50 AM

Yesterday was a weird day. All day long it just felt weird. There were anxious moments... I sat through a meeting discussing the upcoming uncertainties at work. There were depressing moments... I worked on a photograph of a friend's grandfather, who is not doing well. There were awkward moments... conversations that didn't quite flow (but have since been resolved). Fun moments... hanging out with some current housemates as well as housemate alumni. And, then there were frightening moments...

Here's the gist: Last night, at 2 a.m., some random stranger entered my apartment, climbed the stairs, and attempted to invade the bedrooms (and occupy the beds... much to the surprise of those bed's current occupants) on the second floor. My quick-thinking housemate, took charge of the situation and promptly ejected this dude from our apartment. No one was harmed. Nothing was stolen. I, living on third floor, basically slept through the entire incident.

That shit is fucked up. I don't really know how else to put it.

The most important thing here is that my second floor peeps seem to be ok, albeit slightly shaken up.

Anyway... I've been on the internet all morning trying to find a place where I can order an ED-209 to patrol the downstairs while we sleep. That mofo is brutal. It nearly destroyed RoboCop. If only it could walk down stairs...

That IS messed up. You shoulda taken his pic first, so you could check on it later. And so you could feed his image to your new security bot.

Ok, so I'm still reading your blog. I'm sorry to hear all that crap happened. I'm glad everyone is ok.
Be good.

That robot is totally cute!... err... I mean "cute" in the ancient Sanskrit meaning of the word, which is "ruthless, flesh-stripping terror".

Actually, I appreciate your efforts to protect us. Last night was definitely fucking scary. We need to come up with housemate awards; Micah's being "Mr. Kickass".

Want to know what'd be great? It'd be great if that dude found your watch and was just returning it. Let's pretend that's what he was doing.

Sam Who!?
Sam is an amazing and humble guy. Once, he rushed into a burning building, up six flights of stairs to save a kitten from certain death. He speaks eight languages, has mastered three varieties of martial arts, is a wine expert, and is a pulitzer prize winning author. Sam is an international heart-throb who prefers a quiet evening at home knitting afghans for the homeless, to the go-go, glitz and glamor of the party scene. I think the day he won the silver medal for ballroom dancing at the 98 olympics was the happiest of his life. Pretty impressive for a guy who never finished the 8th grade. - Carrie, 04
