is this thing on?

i'm back from the vegas, where i had no internet and lost too much money but had a great time.

being gone sunday night through thursday night one of the things i was most looking forward to was crawling into my bed and resting, which i had every intention of doing, until i ran into a slight road block.

upon arriving at home, in the pouring down rain mind you, i realized that my screen door was locked and the key was not on my key chain.

which posed a major problem - i couldn't get into my flippin' house.

CK and i contemplated breaking the storm door, but then i had a brilliant idea.

i texted foxxy to see if her fabulous boyfriend middaugh, a cop in my district, was working tonight - he was.

i called him to see if he had any fun tools that could unlock a stubborn dead bolted screen door - he didn't, but knew another cop who did.

picture it, cleveland, 2010, and three of cleveland's finest are popping the lock in the pouring down rain and hail so i can sleep in my bed tonight.

because of my wonderful cop friend(s) i didn't have to pay a locksmith over $100 and the whole job was done in about 5 minutes.

now that's what i call putting our tax dollars to good use :)

also thanks go to my new neighbors, maria and phil, who let me use their, um, facilities, while i was waiting for help to come.

i love my new neighborhood!!!

but after all of the hullabaloo i just went through my wet ass is ready for a hot shower and my bed.

the SEMA/vegas recap will just have to wait till tomorrow but stay tuned to the plum this upcoming week for lots of fun giveaways and event announcements.

have a great weekend, kids.

it's good to be home.

  1. What I wanna know/can't figure out is... how the hell did you manage to lock the deadbolt in the first place? Or did you just lose your key? Kudos to the cops and your neighbors.

    Glad you had a good trip. I saw your updates all week and was jealous! I love Vegas. So much in fact, I'd consider moving there. Although, that would be extremely dangerous!

    Get some rest and I can't wait to hear all about it!

  2. That is a good use of tax dollars and something that I would have done here in my small town. Sorry to hear that you lost your key, but glad that the story had a happy ending.

  3. Cleveland's finest pulls through in a pinch! Glad they saved your wallet while your neighbors saved your bladder.

  6. Lucky duck!

    And good thing your neighbors recognized you and didn't think you were trying to break in. Though, I guess that would have brought the cops there anyway.
