Egg Cracked.

The recurring alternator problem with the Egg turns out to be a long-since-broken bolt holding the alternator bracket; so she’s getting a $400+ spa treatment (again).

 

Update: All better. The nice man tapped out a new bolt-hole, and even tidied up the wiring a bit.

My Egg is not ugly!

As I scrambled for change, the homeless guy at the offramp calls the Good Egg “such an ugly little car!” … wow.

Lesson: thank God I have a lovely “ugly little car” and the job to pay for it, or you’d be short that 75¢, buddy …

Signs from God

I’m pretty damned sure I’d closed the car door and turned off the headlights last night, and it’s not like the Egg has a lot of superfluous electronics, so a dead battery must be a sign from God to reduce my carbon footprint and try TriRail today. Fortunately, we have flexible hours. Unfortunately, I didn’t bring my work laptop home last night, so I can’t get an early start.

Experiment working well, however. Bus route picks up diagnolly across the street from our house, exchanges to a bus stop with my choice of whichever of three buses happens by next (zero wait time today, max 15min or less), and TriRail runs at around 20 minute intervals, so the biggest Catch is to get on that first bus, and not leave anything in my car that I’m fixing to need for work. Since my office is almost literally on top of the station, it’s looking pretty golden.

Bonus points for public transit in my area increasing my exposure to practical Kreyol usage.
