So there I was...
...on route 146, having two people jump into my moving car... but before all of that...
I got into an argument with my ex-girlfriend... which is all we do online. Oddly, we don't argue much in person, but online we go at it, lol.
Despite that, my week was pretty cool, actually. On Wednesday, Eric came up to visit randomly and we went over to Jarrettsville branch of HCPL (Harford County Public Library) to check out the new anime club they were holding. We were above the age cap, but the Librarian in chare of the club was OMFG hot. It was...wow. Just wow... Anyway, she gets our names and numbers for the possibility of a "Mature" anime club, so... cool!
We ended up working on a lot of random D&D crap. I've created 6 NPCs in the last three days, lol.
So, Wednesday and Thursday were marked by random cute girls and D&D work... then we went to see Sheena...
Eric and I decided a random trip to Sheena's was in order, so we head down there. Sheen is at Walmart buying scrubs, so we chill in the Diner to wait for her. Have a really hot waitress, good food, a really hot waitress... and Sheen shows up and we decide to call people to see who would be willing to hang out. Of all people, Oshi was the only one that answered the call, so I grabbed Eric and Sheen in my car and we started north toward Philly.
Just above Jacksonville/Phoenix, I feel was I think is a gear slip. I was maintaining the accelerator and I suddenly lost power, and it came back up to normal. No big deal, I was probably right at the bottom RPM of my gear and I hit a bump and I dropped down to second gear. Less than a mile later, I really lose power. I pump my gas to try and keep the engine running, but to no avail. I stall.
So I try to restart it, it starts, we get on our way, and it dies again. I get it over a mile in this fashion before it starts refusing to start. So, Sheen and Erric get out behind the car and start pushing. I push the car from the side so that I can steer, which would have worked great, but it was all uphill. We get it on a level surface and get it going at a decent speed, and I jump in and try to start it. It starts! I accelerate to about 15 and Eric and Sheena run after me and jump into the moving car!
We eventually get the car to the 152 junction on 146 Northbound and my mom grabs us from there, we grab Eric's car, and go back to Sheen's. At this point, we're hellbent on reaching our goal after so much trouble, so we grab Sheen's car and continue our journey.
Sheen has a blowout and we end up between exit 89 and mile marker 89. We find the spare (donut) and attempt to pull it out. The fucker was wedged in there TIGHT. There was a plastic cap securing it to the bottom of the trunk and the bastard wouldn't give. A completely useless cop showed up and kept commenting that we wouldn't be able to get it out, heh...
Eric climbs into the trunk and uses his legs to get more leverage and couldn't quite get it out. I lean in and pull as hard as I can and miraculously, the plastic bitch snaps and we tear the wheel out.
We jack up the car and go to remove the blown tire. There was no fucking tire-iron! No lugwrench to speak of. We get a little pissed, and call people to find someone to bring us a lugwrench. Wes, the Angel of Mercy, agrees to come down, but it'll be a while until he arrives.
In the meantime, Eric strong-arms a mile marker out of the ground, I separate it from the steel pole, and we present it to Sheena as a birthday present. Cop #2 arrives (yes, after
we have the mile marker, lol) and completely misses the large bag of pills (herbal ginseng, of all things) and the mile marker, ROFL.
Wes arrives, gives us key item TIREIRON, and we're on our way within half an hour. We stopped around 2:30 AM and were there until 6:00 AM. Yeah...
So we got back to Sheen's house, Eric drives me and himself back to my house, and he crashes. I stay up till 8:00 AM to call the local towing company and I crash on my couch shortly afterward.
My grandmother yells at me, food, stuff, and now I'm here and Halo+Birthday*billion. ^_^
