Poor Champagne Girl

weather: sunny-ish
outside: 3°C
mood: not too bad
Well, Rabid Blinker Lady t-boned Champagne's rear driver side door, so now it won't open. Champagne also sounds a bit rumbly even though the muffler is on the passenger side... not sure how that works. And yesterday, Brother Boy said that when he was sitting in idle, the engine was at over 2000 RPM, but when he showed me, it was under 1000 again. She'd just gone in last weekend for maintenance. =P

We have an appointment w/ ICBC ("icky-bicky") on Monday to assess the damage.

I'm thinking this will bleed me for about $2K. Any bets? =P =}

idling
I'm not as experienced with cars as my sibling is, but the idling may not indicate anything wrong. IIRC, when cars start from cold, they idle higher at first, and then as the engine warms up, the idle drops...

Yikes. Hopefully it won't cost *that* much... but cars they be fickle things and I can never predict them.
