We put a brand new battery in MB's car on June 23rd.

This evening, as I was driving out to the country to kidsit, the battery light came on for no apparent reason.

As I drove home, the indicator lights came on one by one until the dash was lit up like a fucking Christmas tree. When I parked it outside our apartment, turned the engine off, and tried to restart it, it wouldn't start. MB got it to start five minutes later, but the battery light is still coming on so he's taking it to Pep Boys tomorrow afternoon.

At this rate, we'll be lucky if we get a house before 2010.

I'd cry if I wasn't so pissed off.

The best part of all? His car is the GOOD CAR. It's the one we're counting on to last another five years at the very least.

I'm crossing every appendage that this turns out to be a very simple and very cheap problem to fix.

P.S. This makes me feel a little bit better:

Don't tell, but I totally heart Zach Braff.


  1. this battery issue wouldn't have anything to do with the reason i saw him parked at the electrical substation on green river, by the lloyd, on my way to work, would it? i was curious when i saw him what he was doing parked there standing by his car using his phone.
