As in: either I get the car fixed, or move closer to work. As in, now. I don't even get paid until Monday.
$1800 for auto repairs. This is not going to happen. The vehicle's not worth that. That's even if I had that kind of money (six+ months of working at a newspaper+other economic factors == zero savings. Do not pass go. Do not collect anything.)
I'm looking into just getting the starter replaced, assuming I can find one for less than $400. I need to get the car from Anchorage to the Valley, so that it may receive a proper redneck burial.
I'm really tired of this. When I die, I hope I get to kick Henry Ford in the balls at least once.
