I was driving to pick up lordandri from work, when the car *poof* dies at an intersection. Thank gods I had my sidekick with me. I frantically IMed Andrei for help. a very nice stranger (yes, they exist even in L.A.) Helped me get the car to the side of the road. A coworker gave andrei a lift to me, and now we are sitting on the grass waiting for the tow truck.
