The clutch on my Chevy Prizm has been going for several weeks. We made an appointment to get it fixed next Wednesday. Unfortunately it didn't last that long. It died on my way home from work tonight.

I made it to my freeway exit but as I downshifted to exit, the gears made a grinding sound and now the car will not move in any gear.

I called AAA and they sent a truck to tow it to the garage where it will be fixed.

All this on the night I was hoping to make my return to work. BUMMER!

My Portion Of The Bailout

I found a link to this Bailout Calculator. Dividing the total $ spent on bailouts by the number of americans, and then multiplying by the number of people in my family (9), our portion of the bailout is $248,391!

I hope it's not true!

I started driving pizza almost 5 years ago and we thought it would be a short-term part-time job. At this point I'll have to drive forever.

Broken Arm Wave

I was driving home tonight and I saw a tan Ford minivan with a car topper and I knew it could be none other than Big Steve. I rolled down my window and stuck my arm out and waved.

Only after I had passed did I realize it was my broken arm that I waved with.

I guess I'm ready to try to drive again. I'll be there Friday from about 6-9.

Laid Off Workers Open Black Market Pizza

As seen on CNN. Not a bad idea in today's economy.
