View Full Version : I hear bells...

So I'm sitting here, playing Fallout 3 and committing genocide in the D.C. Wastelands when I hear bells. Not church bells or phone ringing bells. THOSE bells! The ding-ding, ding-ding of the ice cream van. Guess which happens next:

A) I ignore it and continue my rampage
B) Look out, get the number to the van, call them and ask to circle back or stop
C) Bolt out the door (not bothering to close it), shoes flapping, chase it for a block and a half, chugging like the Little Engine that Couldn't

If you chose C) congrats, you win my Orange Dream Bar*!

This is a good sign! It means winter is almost over! I hope they come next week. I think I'll have a Tear Jerker cup then :D

*Must claim within 5 minutes. Not an actual offer. By reading any part of this you give up any rights regarding said offer. I mean non-offer. I hate typing in tiny font. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Never gonna give you up. Never gonna let you down!

Glad to oblige :D

For me, it's the principle of the thing. I'm tired of winter (was tired of winter as soon as it dipped below 70 degrees here) and wanted something that reminded me of summer. Besides, I got a bit of a sweat jogging my fat :censored: for more than 5 seconds :D

They play "Turkey In The Straw" around here. I don't know how common that is in the states, but the first time I heard it, I honestly thought I was going crazy for a few minutes before I could track down the sound (it was a street or so over). It was so faint but distinctive.

A moment of pure panic brought to you by Mr Goodbar. My husband thinks the idea of me gone insane to the tune of "Turkey In The Straw" is hysterical. He won't stop bugging me about that one.
