Oy. So, yesterday the car decided to make things difficult. As we're on I-freakin'-5, Eric suddenly goes "Shit, the battery light just went on." And promptly almost rear-ended someone, but that's neither here nor there, 'cause he didn't. Anyway, we managed to get it to Les Schwab to check out the battery (battery got replaced in December, so it was still under warranty), and they very kindly checked it out and charged it for us, and said it wasn't the battery. It's probably the alternator. So, amongst many a phone call to Eric's family (conducted by yours truly, and I forgot both his parents' names when I called their house first. Oy, yet again), we got things organized. Eric's little brother Kyle came up last night and drove us to the park'n'ride this morning (good man, that one), and we should be hearing something back about the car today. Eric's folks also said they'd lend us the money for the problem (even after I told them what the lady at the dealership had quoted me as an estimate for replacing the alternator), so, thank the gods, we don't have to worry about coming up with that right this second.
Problem - we need to get either home or to the dealership after work. The dealership is in Lynnwood, on 99, so not far from our house. Anyone wanna give us a ride? We usually get to Eastmont Park and Ride around 6:15 or so, but we can take the bus all the way to Everett Station if that would be more convenient for people. Please? We can take you out to dinner or something, if that helps. :)
Aaaaaand that's the state of stuff. I need chocolate.
