I realized that today is my one-year anniversary with my car. This makes this morning's dent discovery that much more disheartening.
OK, I've finished with my data entry for the time being, so here is the Fellowship ice cream bit, as promised:
It started with this picture on the LordOfTheRings.net web site
with the caption "Legolas (Orlando Bloom) and Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen) escort Gandalf (Ian McKellen) to the stables of Edoras in New Line Cinema's epic adventure, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King."
Looking at this, I wondered "Why do they feel the need to specify that they are on their way to the stables? The stables aren't in the photo. Does this increase our appreciation for the picture, knowing their destination?"
Upon which Erica put on a little one-woman play, including voices!
Erica: They could be going to the ice cream truck!
Aragorn: I'm going to have the Choco Taco.
Gandalf: I think I'll have an ice cream sandwich. They are always so refreshing . . .
Legolas: I don't know what I will have, but it will be sugar free. We elves may live forever, but we still have to deal with tooth decay.
Aragorn: Gimli wants us to bring him back a Rocket Pop.
Gimli (voiceover, or flashback, I suppose): My cousin Balin always used to eat Rocket Pops. Now, there's a trrreat for a warrrior!
At which point I laughed my fool head off.
