a brief intermission

My wife and two-year-old son were carjacked today. They weren’t harmed, just terrorized. The police caught the guy, but we still don’t know exactly what happened and may not for a while. It could have been MUCH MUCH worse. Everyone’s okay, though.

So, needless to say, I’ve got other priorities right this second other than blogging. I know some people are waiting on the edge of their seats for the next installment of 30 Days of Burning Wheel, but it might be a few days before I finish any of the several pieces I’ve started. [EDIT: I meant that last sentence to be at least mildly amusing (since I’m sure NO ONE is actually waiting on the edge of his seat!), but I can see how that got buried under the otherwise grave tone of the post. Sorry about that.] I’ll get back to it as soon as I can, though. Thanks. And remember to lock your car doors at all times, people.

  1. I am really sorry to hear about what happened and I am grateful to hear that your wife and child are well.

    Take your time away from the computer; take stock of what’s important and we’ll be here when you get back.

    Burning Wheel ain’t going anywhere.

  3. Oh, and the family’s doing good. Wife is fine, Boy is fine, though he keeps asking “where’s the bad man” and when I tell him “in jail,” he asks, “where’s the jail?” the answer to which is ALWAYS “far, far away.”

  4. That’s awful, Steven — I’m glad they’re okay!

    Burning Wheel can wait, and while I sit firmly back in my seat, I do look forward to seeing what you’ve written about BW daily. :)

  5. Glad to hear it all worked out okay for you and yours. Now I feel less freakish for my own door-locking compulsions (both home and car).

  6. Holy shit, dude. That utterly and completely sucks.

    and, like Martin, I am on the edge of my seat for the next installment!
