Car, no car, car...

Took my little white Saturn to the shop today. Conveniently, my mechanic (who, frankly, sucks, but see following) is a 20-minute walk from my office.

I'll throw money at them, and they will change the oil, degunkify the fuel injector, and get it inspected. Yay. Unfortunately, there's something a little screwy with the electrical system that's causing the "check engine" light to come on. Boo. I was going to escape for about $150, but that'll probably add a few dollars to that total. Sigh.

Still, for a $1000 car, it's doing remarkably well. Weirdly, it's had 84000 miles on it for about two years now. Funny, that. Maybe it believes its own lies.

When reading your entry I read "Satan" not "Saturn". I was trying to figure out how to get a white Satan and what kind of shop you take it to...

"my little white satan" sounds like a pet name for ingrained racism. I like it.
