  • Mood:

Flu got me, looking for a new-to-me car.

I get the flu every year regardless of whether I have a flu shot. This year's unmistakable sign was dreaming that my brain was cooking, which was distressing enough to wake me up and take my temperature: 102.5. I'll be better in a few days but I'm feeling pretty lousy today.


In other news, we test-drove a car yesterday. The friendly but down-on-his-luck seller it didn't have his shop open when we went by at lunchtime to pick it up, so we're still looking.

We're looking for a used automatic transmission car that:
- is reasonably reliable (most of my driving will be carpooling to/from my neighborhood elementary school and running local errands),
- has a clean CARFAX Vehicle History Report,
- will pass state inspection, and
- is around $1000.

A seller within a few miles of the intersection of the Dallas North Tollway and George Bush Turnpike is preferable.
