Well, as I probably should have predicted, I didn't make it through the trip without problems. I'll spare you the details, but I can report that there exists no ignition modules for my car in the town of Lannett, Alabama. Luckily, I somehow managed to limp the 200 or so miles from the spot where the "Service Engine Soon" light started its ominous blinking to my parents house and was able to find said part two towns over from there's. Here it is Wednesday evening, I'm still in Alabama, and I'm hoping, praying that I'll be able to hit the road first thing in the morning, arriving by evening to see the wife and wee one, whom I've spent my first nights away from this week. Don't forget that tomorrow (Thursday) starts SoTShoStoWriMo. I'll have to figure out a way to get this kicked off. If you have any ideas or would like to join, drop me a line.
I'll leave you with this video of Norman Mailer and Rip Torn beating the living crap out of each other.
