5ive Gears in Neutral

boo... on my way into work, my transmission adopted a very simplistic policy. Reverse and all the forward gears have become neutral, which is not as nuanced as transmissions would be under my administration. Anyway, I wasn't too far from home, so Carolyn was able to come by with the 'burban so we could nudge my car into motion enough for me to coast off of 101 and into a parking lot. Carolyn said she didn't notice anything odd when she used it earlier, so I am hoping it will turn out to be something that won't require much nuance to fix. There is a first time for everything, after all.

Rob said Carolyn could borrow his truck, so I should be able to take the burban into work.

If it makes you feel any better, my car is liable to explode each time I start it, especially if I had just been driving it right before. That & it doesn't like when I try to shift from 3rd to 2nd gear. Half the time I have to put it in 1st gear first.

Oh but it doesn't make me feel any better! In fact, now I an concerned that one of the few LJ friends I have is in danger of being blown to bits at any time!. I'm especially concerned since you haven't been filing any walking updates of late...

The current estimate we have for fixing it is about $1500, which is pretty close to what I paid for the thing in the first place. Carolyn is off at choir practice at the moment, however, so I am going to take this opportunity not to think about it for awhile. I have a big entry to do to the other account, so maybe I will 'work' on that, instead. Or maybe I will bask in the glow of other LJ-er's delirious happiness. Okay, so maybe that isn't a great strategy, in general, but here is one I saw today...
