fuck.

i just got a call back from the lawyer who's working my los banos case.

his retainer fee would be $2500. that's far more than the cost of the ticket in the first place ($1800-ish).

back to square one.

fuck.

what am i going to do?

i can't make an appearance in court myself, because i have a suspended license, and the judge is aware of that- ergo, driving out there is a Bad Idea. worse yet, because i'm dealing with some backwater redneck judge in los banos, i have to be there by 8:30 in the morning and then i *may* get a court appearance.

fuck.

i had hoped to resolve this before the 15th of next month, because as of April 15 i'm going to have two car payments to deal with, not one.

the only way i'll be able to manage that is getting my license back and procuring comprehensive insurance before then- otherwise the combined total of the two car payments is $1400/month.

my other option is to continue trusting louise to make the car payments. this option has *not* demonstrated itself to be a reliable one.

fuck.

as with anything, i couldn't be idle while presented with this problem... it sat there and gnawed at me for 15 minutes until i picked up the phone again.

i called Paul (the lawyer) back- he said he'd need $1500 up front and the rest could be taken care of in payments.

i'm supposed to call him back about it on thursday morning at about 8:30.

so... maybe i can pull this off, if i can register and sell my sentra to kit before the end of the week.

i just located the registration papers... i can't concentrate enough to work right now, so i'm gonna go to the DMV and wait in line for half an hour while praying something *else* doesn't come up to make this any harder than it already is.

i hope i can do this. i don't know. it doesn't look good.
