Ice breaker.

I'm sure everyone has had the fantasy where they fashion a blade out of ice, stab their boss 17 times in the back of the face, only for the murder weapon to melt away leading to sweet, sweet exoneration?

No?

Well I have. The thought occurred to me this morning in defrosting my fridge. Getting a new one delivered this morning, you see, so I'll have the use of a freezer compartment for the first time since I moved in here.

My hands hurt, I had to use a fork for a chisel, and my flat is like the set of a Kevin Costner vanity project.

Still, I'm doing it for the Fish Fingers, for the steak I don't want to eat right away, for ice cream (fuck the cholesterolic problems), for frozen vegetables which, apparently, are healthier than the fresh variety.

Bring on the country mix.

As I type, there's a basin of hot water working its magic inside the old ice box, I'm hoping that that last tricky bit of frozen water divorces itself from the wires at the side and I can proceed to wait patiently for the delivery men, and wait, and wait.

Maybe I'll just skip town, go here and meet the quare fella.

*lol* The hairdryer is good for more than one thing! At least now you'll not have an excuse for finishing off the B&J - it can go back in the freezer...

I'm just surprised I got a comment about the defrosting of a freezer.

Meadow said...

'Ice breaker'... here I was expecting a romantic Valentine's tale.

I recommend frozen spinach.

And, from personal experience, NOT putting candles into the fridge to defrost it more quickly.

Radge said...

The thought did cross my mind, Meadow.

And I'm ignoring Hallmark Day.

Meadow said...

Happy Valentine's Day!

No Hallmark required.

Melted insides of fridge toxins inhaled = still waiting for my eyebrows to fall out - or something.

Country mix rocks.

Radge said...

Meadow - I reciprocate with ardour.

Narocroc - I went for the Luxury Mix. Those words again? Luxury Mix.

I'm trying to picture you stabbing someone in the "back of the face" with an ice knife. More coffee might help...

hope said...

Susan I had the same thought. :)

Then again, I was guilty of having a passing thought that the Boss and her lackey would've made great CPR dummies. :0

Okay Radge, how about if you're wished love, no matter what day it is and you get to pick the style of love you receive? ;)

Radge said...

All very much appreciated!

NaRocRoc said...

Luxury Mix you say? Posh bastard. But do explain!

You have to update us on the new fridge now... it's so exciting. Does it have a thin layer of plastic all over it that you haven't yet got round to peeling off? and if so do the fridge magnets still work through it? and did you remember to take back the fridge magnets off the old fridge? or did you decide to splash out on new fridge magnets? or do you have any fridge magnets at all? and if not, why not?
(My fridge is covered with a big layer of wood, built-in kitchen style from the 90's, the only place I can put up magnets is on the rads - and that's just wrong)

Radge said...

Niamh - You mirror the thoughts of my closest allies. "Can't believe you wrote about a fucking fridge!" one of them said, before I transferred that single fridge magnet over to its new domain and CHRIST I'm locked...

Niamh B said...

So... you gonna post a pic of the magnet??

Radge said...

Perhaps. I feel a 'picture special' in the offing.

Can't wait
