dude, I really hope you find it soon and that the robber gets caught.
I had a staff stolen by some kid during a fire meet, I told some friends about it and one of them (who happened to be the one who made my staff) saw the kid with the fire staff and got it back for me. my staff is still a little bent, which sucks, it was awesome before.

Posted:That is f*cking shite when that happens mate!

It still perplexes me that people have absolutely no morals that stealing is perfectly acceptable.

My advice... be on the lookout for any amateur fireshows in your area and see if the props look familiar...

Much hug in lieu of missing items...

Good luck getting it all back.

You do just get some dumb thieves Firetom- who have no idea what they're stealing- my parent's place got broken into a few years back, what went missing was a couple of t-shirts with their logo on, a bunch of pewter figures, some chocolate and the entire stock of non-alcoholic Lakeland Punch..

Hope you get your stuff back Mynci.

Hey, if they nicked the directions to a gig.. check if they're dumb enough to actually *show*..


If that's okay with you?

Posted:Some people just make you sick, don't they.

You don't often wish for people to set themselves on fire, but here's hoping they fancy having a go and just don't know what they're doing.

There is a slight possibility that I am not actually right all of the time.

Theres been a lot of theft lately. Ben's car got broken into last night, luckily he didn't have much in there, but it's irritating none the less having your private property messed with and car smashed up.

Heres hoping that something brilliant happens to you real real soon. hug
