I want to believe

I want to believe in the nobility of the human spirit and all that. But you've caught me at a bad moment.

This morning, while I was browsing away on the web, and getting geared up for tonight's Legendary Pink Dots show, suddenly I heard a tapping, as of someone gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.

Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter, I spied a thing of evil! A thing of evil from night's plutonian shore.

Some fiend was trying to steal my bike from beneath my very nose! As you see he was able to separate the front wheel from the frame, and had partially separated the rear one when I caught him.

My rear wheel is not easy to get off, since it is bolted on, but he had a wrench.

Anyway, I startled him, so he quickly left on "his" bicycle. He did manage to get my seat, but nothing else.
