The car works again…

On Sunday afternoon, I dug my bike out of the basement and rode a few miles to Autozone. I plopped down on a jump start kit. (It’s heavy, so it wasn’t easy riding back from the store with that swinging from my handlebars.) I charged it up and the next morning…nothing. Damn thing didn’t work. […]

Car update

Called Saturn. The guy on the phone was less than helpful. “It sounds like you need a new battery.” I suggested it may just be the alternator instead. “Yeah, it could be that.” The earliest they could look at it was Tuesday at 3pm. Ugh. By that time, the battery will probably be dead anyway. […]

Cars suck…especially mine this week.

It took me over 2 1/2 hours to get home from work. It usually takes about 40 minutes. My car wouldn’t start in the Monster parking lot, so I called AAA. An hour later, some guy from Jack’s Towing in Maynard (which is only about 5 minutes away) shows up. He forgot his jumpstart kit. […]

My car…again…

I should stop going for oil changes. They always get REALLY expensive. This was my 90,000 mile maintenance thingie. There were a few problems I was aware of (like the fog light cable being disconnected, a low coolant warning light that was on, and a slow leak in my right rear tire) but they found […]

Click It or Ticket

I forgot to mention it, but I went to court to fight that ticket I got for having an expired inspection sticker. (It expired in September and I was stopped on October 30th.) I presented the inspection test results taken less than three hours after I got the ticket where the car passed and simply […]

The big ol’ bill

It turns out the repair estimate was $100 higher than the actual cost. It’s still a lot, but at least I’m $100 less in debt. Car runs fine now…

Today = Suckage

Okay, I could write up a long rant about all the stuff that went wrong today, but instead I’ll just list it all. Seems like more fun at the moment… Stuff that went wrong today: I missed Christine’s call to my cell on my drive in because I had the radio turned up too loud […]

I was chased by the police again…

So I’m driving to work this morning, minding my own business. As usual, I’m stuck behind a bunch of cars going the speed limit. After passing over a poorly angled bridge, there’s a farm stand on the right. A police car is parked there, angled so that it’s out of view from traffic headed in […]

Let’s talk about the weather

Damn, it’s hot and humid here. I wish I had AC in this place. I finally got the part I needed from AutoZone and hooked up those lights in the front of my car tonight. They’re cheesy, but fun. Okay, I need a shower before bed. I’m all sticky and gross from this humidity.
