What Disney Villain are You?
brought to you by Quizilla

I'm buying a house shortly, and as part of that I need to find some furniture. Coincidentally the lovely Little Dan's family is trying to dispose of the contents of a house. Unfortunately that house is in Colchester - and part of the contents are in London.

So I did my sums (cost of Van + Petrol vs 2nd Hand Goods purchase, with an karma allowance for recycling over landfill) so hired a van and set off. It's the first time I've driven a van bigger than a minibus (this was a Hi-Top, long wheelbase). and also ended up being the first time I've driven anything through Central London.

Heroically I struggled on - and managed not only avoid killing myself or my passenger (despite one moment of brakeing where the front of the van stopped and the back slid to the right...) but also I transformed from a mild mannered motorist (steady 60 down the M6) to the superhero "White Van Man" on the way back (red-lining coming up the M40).

After all that there was nothing left to do but have a curry, and now sit here, feeling very full...

So all in all, it sounds like you had a good day!

LOL thinking about the "alternative White-Van-Man" image, wonder what kind of outfit would suit best for that ;)

Outfits for "White Van Man" I suspect would include:
  • Grubby once-white T-Shirt

  • Blue Jeans which show too much arse when the superhero bends down

  • Fluorescent Waistcoat

  • Utility Tool Belt with Mobile Phone, Copy of the Sun/News of the World and Mars Bar dispenser

Snorts. I didn't know you went as slow as 60! Got to be a first time.
