yet another car payment

So I was about to change my oil today when I decided that I should probably check my brakes. Next thing I know, I need new brake pads, new calipers, and a new caliper bracket. Then again, I suppose I should be happy that I discover this now instead of while I'm in New Haven. Now I can continue to exploit the free ethnic labour that I've been taking advantage of the past few years. Sweet!

Oh wait... I'm the free ethnic labour. Damn.. I'll report the total cost later. My guess is that it'll be about $250 or so when all is said and done. Hopefully less. I wasn't really paying too much attention to the price when I ordered the parts over the phone today. Either way it's cheaper than taking it someplace to get fixed, and it's probably no less convenient either. I get to work around my schedule, not theirs.
