@#$#& lock

we're back from florida. the trip was fast and probably went about as well as a trip to attend a funeral could go. well, except for the end.

mrs. noz and i arrived home this evening only to discover we were locked out. for the past few weeks we've been having problems with the lock on the front door. sometimes it just won't open no matter what we do. we've gotten used to just tromping around to the back door when that happens. for weeks we've been meaning to call someone to fix the lock, but we just never got around to it.

anyway, while we were away, someone else had to get into our place. we gave her our spare key. apparently she locked the deadbolt on the back door before she left. i guess she thought she was doing us a favor because we were out of town. it could have been worse. it's unseasonably warm here and so sitting in our florida clothes on our front porch on a january night definitely wasn't as bad as it could have been. and we did get in eventually, after visits from campus security and a locksmith. one of the advantages of living on a college campus is that a whole bunch of people who we can call when stuff like this happens.

and it looks like we're gonna get around to fixing that lock, after all.
