NEW new thing #22: Safe cracker
I love staying in hotels, and until recently have been sort of blindly trusting of the people who clean the rooms. Which is a really dumb idea. Especially now that I take my laptop along so I can write on the road, what's stopping anybody from messing with my stuff? A pink uniform and a plastic nametag do not an honest person make, so on this trip to the Jersey shore, I used a hotel safe. My dad swore by these things when we all used to travel together, but I never really saw fit to use them. But I also don't see fit to get my stuff ripped off. So I followed the rather fool-proof instructions, locked up my Mac and some other stuff, and headed to the beach, worry free.
