So much for Christmas this year... by Onissarle

Well, there goes Christmas.

We were driving back from out weekly run to pick up bugs for out lizards when an imported Japanese sports car ran a stop sign at hit me when I was driving in a 50mph zone. Although I was able to lurch it home, it's going to be a write off. So much for being able to drive down and spend Christmas with my family.

So, down one car. The real bugger is that just a month ago I spent $700 on repairs to keep it on the road for another year, which makes me pretty screwed in every direction. I can't afford to replace it at the moment and I'm likely to get pittance from the insurance.

Luckily, I was able to dodge well enough that they didn't slam into the front passenger side where my partner was sitting and hit the rear side instead. It's also lucky that I managed control the spin enough that we came up short of going through the old stone wall along the side of the road. So, the good news is that no-one was seriously hurt.

Still...

Dammit
