Invasion of the Ice Cream Vans - trinalin thinks things through — LiveJournal
Invasion of the Ice Cream Vans
It was a lovely, lazy day today. I only worked 3 hours and then came home to goof off. Leo and I spent some time outdoors enjoying the warm breeze and bugs (well, he enjoyed the bugs). And later I took a nap. To be awakened later by an ice cream van going down my street. And then back up again. It had this very annoying song, one which I didn't recognize.

But after it passed on, I heard another ice cream van tune. This one was recognizable. "Old MacDonald Had a Farm." At first I thought the van had switched tunes, but then I realized I could still sort of hear the other one. Ah, so there were two ice cream vans.

I lay there listening - and heard "Down Upon the Suwannee River" and then another van playing "Musicbox Dancer." Sheesh! A town as small as mine does NOT need 4 ice cream vans. (My town is 1/4 mile by 1/4 mile - you do the math.)

Funny thing is, had I had some cash at the time, I might well have gone after one of those ice cream vans. They were very rare when I was a kid, but there was one item they sold that I loved. It was a "Mickey Mouse" ice cream bar. Chocolate and vanilla ice cream, basically. Yummy.

I decided to be bad another way, however, and ordered a Pizza Hut pan pizza - pineapples on top. And let's hear it for leftovers! Yay!

Anyhoo, back to playing Diablo II with judiang and indefatigable42.

Current Mood: geeky geeky

I haven't had an ice cream van ever go down my street. I think they're scared...

On seeing your subject titley thingy, the following immediatley popped into my head:

Invasion of the Ice Cream Vans
Starring Sylvester McCoy as The Doctor
Patrick Troughton as the Dead Guy
Colin Baker as the Ice Cream Van leader

Can the Doctor eat enough ice-cream to keep the invading trucks happy? Why is the Dead Guy walking around the local swimming pool? Find out in this week's exciting episode of Professor What!

I think I'd better go have some coffee now...
