The car is now 75.084% dead.

Debt: $1450 Familial, $2800 Credit card, $1500 loan. The goal is to get those to $1000, $2000 and $1500 by year's end.. so aiming to have some cheap months here coming up.. of course, with FurFright on late October and a Florida vacation in Early November, that'll be tough...

The cell phone is 860^961^6462. SMS always welcome, and you can email 160-character messages to [number, no spaces or dashes]@vmobl.com to me as well.

Boy do I know how you feel. I've been without a car for 8 days now. Blech. I guess I'm lucky, my mom has been picking me up for work and dropping me off. But it means I get to work 20-25 minutes early, and get home 20-25 minutes later than I normally would. And I have to pack a lunch instead of coming home. And I had to cook spaghetti tonight in order to have something to eat for lunch tomorrow....

Well, there's still some time left ont he car.. but at !))K, it's close enough to dead for my purposes. Hoping it makes out that natural lifespan. Hope you can get yourself a new car soon, Birdie!

How do you figure the last .084 percent?

To fully explain this bit:

At 100,000 miles, the car will be dead, or close enough for my considerative purposes. Shortly thereafter I'll get a new car, and sell this one to Linux Rob or trade it in, depending on its current state. Hopefully, it won't die early.

So, since the car at that point had 75,084 miles on it, it's 75.084% dead. Hunting through my LJ archives will reveal earlier states of more life.
