Oh, Life.

The first thing I thought of, when I heard the car making noises that weren't familiar, was Google. Lights came on that have never come on before in the 3 years we've had the car. It made me sweat driving back from town and seeing the lights, hearing the noises and psychosomatically smelling fire in the oil thingy or a burning engine - neither of which I've ever smelled before.

It's kinda like that Paula Abdul song when she takes two steps forward and three steps back.

Thanks to google, I ran a test on my car that required me to start the engine, yank off the positive line from the battery and see what happens.

What happened was the whole car shut down confirming that it's the alternator - so says the google test.

... and I was having such a good day.

Big Wednesday was 7.5 million tonight and I didn't buy a ticket.
I just need 1 not 7.5!

Wish you were here to tell me that everything was going to be a-ok. I'd be happy without a car and walk barefoot to Pluto and back if you were here.
