Gah. I managed to reach over the seats with an umbrella, push the clutch, and start the car. Then I sat there for several minutes banging my shoulder against the back door and cursing this life on earth. Nothing. Finally I gave up and catapulted myself through/over the front seats--which is NO small feat for a big boy like myself in a compact car. I'm sure I looked like I was trying to fellate myself, and I nearly impaled myself on the gearshift.
