apollymi: Hatter with a cuppa, text reads "Tea?" (Alice**Hatter: Tea?)
I managed to get the latest chapter of Monstrous: After Midnight up on almost all the usual places pretty much immediately after [personal profile] katsuko posted it today. So that's it up on [community profile] eternal_sailorm and Monstrous. I also transferred the entire Monstrous site from the subdirectory to the main directory of that subdomain. It was bothering me. It's fixed now, so maybe it'll quit bothering me.

I have had a great deal of help with everything today, in the orange stripes of a Roo-shaped helper. Every few minutes he's come to sit on me and "help" with everything I'm trying to do. It's not conducive to getting things done.

I did end up taking the car to get looked at by the mechanic that Claudio recommended, at least for a free diagnostic. It took the better part of an hour for him to look it over, in and amidst all the actually paying customers coming in and out. The verdict is... that he can't give me an actual verdict. It's not the easy fix stuff like spark plugs or loose wires. He would have to take off the engine manifold and get down into it to try to find the issue, and that simply could not be done in an hour or so... or for free. If it's an easy fix, then the repair cost could be between $400 and $500. If it's something more in depth, who knows? He even said it would be best for me not to drive it too much, because it could end up making matters worse. I think the problems with this are pretty self-evident, yeah? Given that there is only one car and two people in the household who need to go places.

It just never fucking ends. Hell, [personal profile] katsuko ranted about it over on her Tumblr. I think she's submitted it to [personal profile] copperbadge's Radio-Free Monday thing. Because honestly, we need all the help we can get. At least Katie isn't asking for her $1100 back just yet, because that would beyond break us.

I need one of these jobs to come through for me. Something. Anything. Please.
