In which there was no ice


I’m on a plane from Philadelphia to Greensboro and I thought “what the hell, I’ll write a post!!” Good use of time huh?


So, back to my Vermont trip.  I woke up on Saturday and Kevin’s brother David happened to have some of my chocolate milk shake protein powder and I was so excited since I had forgotten mine.  As you know, or you should know, I like to have my chocolate protein shake for breakfast. (Im sure I’ve discussed this before and if I wasn’t so damn lazy I’d find the post and link to it but I am that lazy so I’m not going to).


So I’m totally psyched because whenever I have cereal for breakfast I’m absolutely starving about an hour later and when I have my shake I can last until lunch.  So I get out Allison’s Ninja blender and add the water and the powder.  Then I go to the refrigerator to open the freezer.


David:                         what are you looking for?


Me:                              ice cubes


David:                         they don’t have ice cubes


Me:                              but there’s an ice maker


David:                         it’s not hooked up


Me:                              to what?


David:                         to water


Me:                              where are the trays?


David:                         they don’t make ice in the winter


Now I’m in a state of shock.  David just stood there laughing at me.


Me:                              why is there no ice?


David:                         this is Vermont. It’s freezing outside. Who wants ice?


Me:                              I’m baffled. I never heard of this


David:                         I can run to the convenience store to get you ice


Which he did by the way.  Also What the fuck???? How do people live without ice? Is this common in northern climes???? I have no clue!


I also spent plenty of time discussing the “botulism” button on jars and the fact that I don’t wash my vegetables well enough.


Between that and Kevin trying to amputate himself I was totally ready to go home.

  1. As well as missing ice-cubes do you miss the weather at your home when in Northern climes?

    I am the total opposite to you. I don’t like ice in my drinks which my husband thinks is one of the strangest things about me (he knows nothing….)

    I like being warm and I like my drink to be at room temperature and I like Coca Cola (the full fat version) too much – Hubby does not like any of these. It’s a good job opposites attract.

    I would love to live in a warm country.

      yes, it was spring when I left home and when i got back it was so, so green. Apparently they had a gorgeous weekend. I could never handle that cold, gray winter.

  2. I am the total opposite of you – I love being warm, I don’t like ice in anything unless it is a cocktail and I like all my drinks at room temperature. You sound like my husband – he would put every drink of his in the freezer for 30 minutes before drinking it if he could.

    Glad you had a lovely holiday. x

    I think there’s some kind of secret no-ice cult out there. I have a friend whose former roommate was vehemently anti-ice. She didn’t make it herself, which was fine, but she would get all pissy if my friend put ice trays in the freezer. This was an unairconditioned apartment in summer in Baltimore. It was like being in a beverage gulag, except for how gulags are in Russia and therefore probably have freakin’ ice.

      hahaha…yeah, I lived in Baltimore for years and it’s hot as hell there. Can’t even imagine that
