a few days ago my brother got a sundae at dairy queen with cherry topping. it looked freaky! like some sort of klingon food with a blood topping.

the ice cream truck test

You Are Flexible
You are open to whatever the world has to offer, and you are always open to changing your mind - even if you have strong opinions.
You are very fair-minded, and you are willing to hear almost anyone out. You aren't dissuaded by strong personalities.

You listen to your intuition and give yourself what you need. You may be a bit self-indulgent, but at least you are happy!
You tend to be a bit of an idealist, but your ideals are always changing. You don't cling to one vision for too long.

You are indecisive, and you think it is one of your strengths. The longer you delay a decision, the sounder it will end up being.
You are passionate, but it doesn't stop you from being a clear thinker. You are very unbiased.

runnin' on dunkin

a dunkin donuts opened near here recently & my brother is addicted to the donuts & this is the guy who generally avoids sweets. but his reason is the quality will drop off sooner rather than later. see, we have a theory that any new food place with be good for 6 months or a year after they open to get people to come in & then will switch to lesser quality stuff to save money once they think they have a sufficient costumer base to stay in business. the possible exception to this theory is the local IHOP, about 90% of their stuff is still good 6-7 years after they opened here.

the donut quality is pretty good at dunkin', for several of them. the french cruller is tender & the glaze si sweet, while at other places the taste & texture closely resemble cardboard. the oreo cream was not only good, but had a considerable amount or cream in it. and while the butter nut was a hefty, tasty baked good, the crumble stuff on the outside left much to be desired.
there have been some disappointments too. the apple crumb, apple & spice, bavarian kream, and boston cream didn't deliver as promised.
