I took Beauvoir** the Volvo to the shop today and had some unpleasant (yet fortunate) repairs to make.

Unpleasant, as they were expensive. Fortunate in that they were better discovered now, than empirically at my usual Interstate speeds, at 4 a.m. through the passes.

So...
1 Transmission Flush
2 front control bushings
1 Fog light and
1 bent rear stay later....
...I have a lovely dent in my pocketbook. I still have to get an alignment and two tires. Goodness, I'm glad I have that FSA check in my account.

Plus, I made appointments to take Ye Olde Vesta-Body to her various shops, too. So we should have that taken care of by the end of the year as well (before the bleedin' insurance changes. Again. For the worse. :P)

This repairs plan is awfully expensive and rather annoying. But it sure beats the alternative.

**Named for Jacqueline Beauvoir Kennedy Onassis, for the simple elegance of line in the 2001 Volvo. Although I seriously debated calling her Helena (Ravenclaw), since I often refer to her as the Grey Lady...Why, yes, I AM a Potter-phile, why do you ask?

in our water tables.

Or those drugs they tell women not to touch?
Yeah. Not so much.

Why does the fact that this is coming up after I've been kvetching about this for years NOT make me feel any better for probably being right?

My favorite is "Jessica, who's overweight -- and a triathlete"

Of course, they don't have separate charts for athletes, so technically? 
I'm "obese"

*laughs uproariously*

It's fun being an outlier and disproving the system. :)
