Remember how my car wouldn't start unless I had everything (radio, lights, fan) turned off? And then I had the battery changed and that made everything fine again?
Except it didn't, and now I'm back to where I was before. I did in fact need a new battery, but that hasn't solved the problem of "no dammit please I've been holding down the key for 15 seconds already why won't you just turn over I am going to be late to work oh wait the radio's on" *click* *wait* *rrrrr-rr-br-brammm* "oh thank God." I have no idea what's wrong. Could there a fault in the electrical system somewhere? Is it going to burst into flames next time I go to the grocery store? Is this going to be hella expensive? Probably; my car's so small even minor repairs take forever because they have to take half the engine apart just to reach the area of concern. And hella expensive means, well, hella expensive. And I really don't want to try and ride my bike everywhere this time of year. It could be done, sure, but it would suck eggs and be a giant pain in the ass and I'd have to get a big ol' duffel bag to haul around my laundry. (Although I admit that now I'm starting to brainstorm how that would work, and the puzzle of it kind of intrigues me.)
Life is awesome.
