Back again

Two weeks ago: My family and I went up to my dad's apartment in Toronto for a week. We visited the Ex, I saw my old coworkers at Chisholm, I finally got a chance to walk around High Park, and I managed to pick up volumes 1-10 of Girl Genius used.

Last week: Mostly just lay around in London. One day trip, to the Pinery and another to Stratford where I was greatly tempted by The Book Vault. Evenings I had a chance to experiment with cooking. Over the course of the week I managed to cook steak, onion soup, and lemon chicken.

Tonight I returned to Waterloo to find my front door open. Nothing seems to have been taken, but it's still concerning. Did I forget to close the door when I left, or did the landlord visit and forget to close up after himself?

Tomorrow I start work at Open Text. I'm still not quite sure what I'll be doing, but I suppose I'll learn tomorrow.

Nothing seems to be missing (including a couple moderately valuable things that don't actually belong to me), and a quick survey doesn't turn up anything extra.

Mmmm. Book Vault. Do they still have a huge RPG section? I recall they had a surprising amount of rare and out of print stuff last time I was there (which may have been almost a decade back, now I think of it).

Regardless of how it happened, I'd be concerned about the door. Under the Tenant Protection Act, your landlord is not allowed to enter your premises without giving you 24 hours written notice, so if s/he's dropping by unannounced, you have a whole different problem on your hands.

They've cut their RPG section down a bit (half of the back wall instead of all of it, IIRC). I think they've also cut back on the number of comic books that they carry. Still a side wall from the cash register to the back devoted to them and whole volumes, but I have memories of bins of issues as well.

I called the landlord later after writing this and he said he hadn't come in at all. He's been quite good about giving 24 hours written notice, but these last two weeks I wouldn't have been around to receive it.

Right. Well, I guess if nothing's missing, you either have an honest mistake on your part, or some very particular thieves ("Man, this guy has all crap. Let's book.")
