No More Work and No More Car

Friday was the last day of my temp job.
While I'm glad that I won't have to drive 30 miles every morning in the most god-awful traffic the Bay Area has to offer, I am sad that I won't see my new friends again.
You get attached to people after spending 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, for 3 months with them.

Monday night my car completely died, overheated but the temperature gauge didn't register it was hot. Radiator is leaking like crazy, oil leaks, tires are out of alignment and bad. Etc.
It wasn't even due for service for another 1,000 milesish.

It's incredibly stressful to deal with the car situation.  I don't have the credit to finance a new one.  And, now that I don't have my job, I can't afford one, either.  But in order to find/go to a new job, I need a car.  It's a vicious circle.
The car I had was a 2001 Ford Taurus, as I've mentioned before.
I am SOOOO done spending money on that piece of crap.

So now, I'm looking for another car.  I want reliable and good gas mileage.
Basically, I want a Honda Civic.  
Actually I'd love a CRZ.  But those are a bit expensive.

But I guess we'll get my car towed, or try to drive it (but I don't think it would make it), to a mechanic shop and get an estimate as to how much it would be to fix it.
