Bad Beyonce!

My poor little car Beyonce has to get a new water pump and timing belt. This makes me very sad. For one thing, I love my car - she's been through a lot, like some long road trips and once a tree fell on her, but she keeps on truckin'. Also, I totally can't afford to pay for major car repairs right now, but of course I will be paying for them so I can get my car back. Finally, Nate and I don't do so great as a one-car family. We both have extracurricular activities and jobs that take place at almost the same time, but not close enough to be convenient for one person to drop off the other person. It's going to be a little messy and I'm pissed off.

Beyonce's ailments - D

Oh no! Poor Beyonce. :( She's quite a trooper, that damn tree. ::shakes fist menacingly:: Plus, Beyonce's gotta truck it on out here to get me. :) But I think she knows the way home. :P

I love Beyonce. She'll pull through! Expensive car work is always worth it in the end. It's hard to live without a car, even in NYC. I miss Bubbles!

Remember principle 3 of Dave's Summer Zen Buddhism - transcend dental medication. Paying for the car work hurts me now, but having a totally dead car would hurt worse, and buying something new is out of the question. Mr. Kat, give me strength.

I hear ya. My car...our car. We're down to the one between us, just got out of the shop in Dec. We are looking to trade in, but all I really want is another Rav. hmmm, I really like not having a car payment.

I love that you named your car Beyonce. There was a Saved by the Bell episode where they needed a new water pump for Lisa's mom's Mercedes. It was the drinking and driving episode.

My car in high school was named Bump n' Grind. It lit'rally grinded when the turning radius got too tight. And she was a bumpy. I was all what, jelous? Ain't nothin' wrong with a little bump n' grind!

Oh, the only car that I had by myself, it's name was "Spewey". I dubbed it Spewey after projectile vomiting in it while driving home from my junior homecoming. I had 2 busch beers, made out with a girl and was smoking a menthol when i puked. I dont know which caused it.

Probably too late for Beyonce this time around, but for all your Mitsubishi service needs, see the fine folks at Showcase Mitsubishi in Bay City. My old autocross mentor is the owner of that fine establishment, and he'll treat you right. Next time.

car problems stink! Being down to one car stinks! Good luck to you and Beyonce!

Beyonce is back, with a new water pump, running like a champ. And to clarify, she's named Beyonce because she's black, but with lots of gold bling-bling trim, and has junk in her trunk.
