The car I've been driving for the past year has just broken down.
On the way home from work*, it started making a rattling noise (which stopped once the engine warmed up, which is why I kept driving even though I spent the entire drive begging the car to make it home), lost oil pressure at idle (the pressure was fine when I pressed the accelerator) and when I got home and opened the hood to have a look, noticed the whole engine compartment was covered in coolant.
Gods, I hope it's just a hose, but I can't do anything about it until Monday, since I'm working all weekend, and my call tomorrow is so early that I'll never get to the garage (I have to be at work at 6:30, and the garage doesn't open until 8).
Luckily, I've got a ride to work tomorrow and Sunday. We're rigging the LA Sports Arena for some movie - I don't even ask what it is anymore. I just want to know what it pays.
*At Culver Studios - there's a rumor around town that it's being torn down to make way for condos, and I'm happy to report that the rumor is 100% false.
The studio was bought by some real estate types, but according to our best boy, they have no desire to tear out 15 or so stages, and undertake a possible hazmat cleanup of the site in order to maybe make a profit in three years if LA's real estate market doesn't crash before then.
They'd much rather do nothing and rent the stages to film crews. Besides, Las Vegas has about half the stages there, so they've certainly got some coin coming in from those guys.
