The good news: it's not the clutch. The bad news:it's just as bad. Actually it's the cable that runs from the stick to the transmission, so I've got to replace that and a clip. For $600. Which leads to the big Waaaah!: I can't go home. At least not now. So my vacation has been postponed, hopefully only until September. The budget just took a swift kick in the ass, and the next two weeks will be tight (not Ramen Noodle tight, more like lots of tuna fish tight). I might see about going to Williamsburg Saturday though, see friends and maybe do some clothes shopping). But damn, Saturday's my mum's birthday and I wanted to be there (and go camping with the sibs). Waaaah. I'm gonna go take a nap now. Sigh.
