Or, Car over.  Transmission equals very no.

In addition to the various strange clunks it’s been making lately, my car stopped going backwards yesterday.  Saturn probably can’t work on it ’til next Friday, but I can drop it off any time I feel want.  The plan is to drop it off tonight or tomorrow night, before it stops going forward and has to be towed.   Diagnostics alone will cost $100.  Yipe.

But unlike the last few experiments, last night’s vodka sauce almost worked.  This time was half the recipe, double the cream, and all the same cook times.  Next time, stage one needs an extra 1-15 minutes, and the end needs less than half the salt.
