Today I really want to be a crime scene investigator. I should transform this into a story - my first hate crime novel.

Why this mood? Because I got ripped out of my dreams this morning by a loud banging on my downstairs window. First I wasn't sure about anything? Was I awake, was I sane, where was the ceiling?
Ages later, but apparently much quicker than I thought, I opened the window at the top of my bed and peeked down, where I found my awkward Polish neighbour in his non-shirt-but-huge-hairy-belly appearance.

He showed me with his hands and a few out-of-place words that someone had toppled my motorbike. Holy...
I was out, in my pants and down the stairs in no time. When I opened the front door my housemate suddenly stood among the kitchen door frame and made me jump. You see my heightened senses?

I found the bike, shattered plastic and one broken off hand bar. Makes about a few hundred bucks/quid/euro/pounds/dollars. And for what? Someone had intentionally overturned it, there is no other possibility the way it stood against the house. So now I want someone to investigate for me please and then report back to me, so I can write my best seller about how I catch the guys à la CSI.

What would you write a crime novel about?

    Sucks about your bike! That's just wrong.
    Can the crime be random car killings through cell phones? Might keep a few people from talking while driving.

    Oh good, Alex! A vigilante. You'd have to include exploding lipsticks and sandwiches too.

    Nahno, I'm still too undisciplined as a writer to go into a lot of CSI detail in a novel. But, I've never tried writing any sort of crime stuff at all, so maybe I should try. You give me good ideas!

    I had my car broken into, and the stereo system stolen, many years ago.(Insurance didn't pay for it either). So I know how badly you must feel, and I'm sorry for you and your motorbike. Sheer malice/stupidity.

    Write yourself the kind of story that you can then turn into money for another bike. In harming you the crook may have unwittingly helped you in other ways.

    From a mad biker's daughter to a fellow biker - poor you, you must mourn your poor bike's injury!

    As for me, I'd like to write about an investigation of a crime committed using the perfect weapon - stabbing by icicle. Based in the fashion world with a bike riding investigator...

    are you sure the Polish neighbor didn't do it? :))

    That's just terrible about your bike. Hope you get some resolution. Me, I'd like to write a crime story in which a reality star turned novelist is killed by poisoned spray tan.

    I hate having to wake up to something like that. I've had some vehicle break-ins that really ticked me off. I'd especially like to find the jerk that broke into my van in Greeley, Colorado back in 1983 and among other things stole a briefcase full of my writing. That was irreplaceable.
    Sorry for your bike. Hope something good comes from it.

    Awww that is so sad about your bike. I hate it when this happens, and it is quite common this side of the world too. I hope you get your bike into it's crystal state soon :(

    I would suck at doing a crime novel, but I love watching CSI! So I guess I would be the reader/watcher in this case :)

    Thanks for all your sharings. Normally I would say I'm glad not to be alone, but in this sense: bad world.

    I like the comment about the cell phones, Alex. Doesn't work for motorbikers anyway.

    Jeffrey, I'm working on it.

    I was thinking about the Polish neighbour, but even though they are weird, they say hello every day and he helped me get it back up too.

    Poison spray, that is great.

    Arlee, oh wow, 1983, that's before i was born but it's obvious why it's still on your mind. I value my computer like my heart, because it's all I have (need to make copies of the files, forgot that again)

    Apfel, be my guest to read and watch.

    Who would do such a thing? A security camera would probably be cheaper and quicker than getting your license to be a CSI!
    Ellie said...
    I'd be pretty angry, too. You turn CSI and get whoever did it!
    Stephanie said...
    Wow....hate when stuff like that happens. maybe I should write a story about the idiots who went in my car and stole my GPS and ipod in the middle of the night..... Can I tell you, I so wanted to fingerprint my entire car and find out who it was!!!

    What kind of people do such things? I will never understand! This really should been worse investigating....is there no CCTV around? You should ask!
    And to answer your question, these days, I would like somebody to investigate on what’s happening within the Japan. They definitely are not telling the truth...neither about the dead toll, nor about the real situation with reference to the nuclear situation/crisis they are fighting…The people in Japan and all around the world have the right to be informed about the truth!

    Wow, that really bites. Clarissa Draper has a great post today on CSI-type stuff - check it out - it might help!
    Abby Minard said...
    OMG! You totally need to put cameras up or something! Stupid jerks!

    That sucks. Some people just like to cause harm to others...it doesn't even matter who.
