what halloween treat are you?

You Are a Gumdrop
Your Halloween personality is enthusiastic, fun loving, and light hearted.
You love Halloween as much as any kid... and possibly more than most kids.

While some people enjoy the scary aspects of Halloween, you're all about the nostalgia.
Halloween reminds you of a happier, simpler time - when all you cared about was the candy in your pillowcase!

halloween personality

You See Halloween as Scary
The scariest thing on Halloween is you! You definitely don't want any kids in costumes crossing your path - and you're willing to scare away any who do.

Sneaky and devious, people should really watch out for you. You are usually underestimated and forgotten.

Your inner child is open minded, playful, and adventurous.

You truly fear the dark side of humanity. You are a true misanthrope.

You're prone to be quite emotional and over dramatic. Deep down, you enjoy being scared out of your mind... even if you don't admit it.

You are picky and high maintenance. If you wear a Halloween costume, it's only when you really feel like it. And it has to be perfect.

they got the misanthrope part right.

five guys burgers

a five guys burger & fries place opened not long ago near here, so we decided to check it out. noting more overpriced, average food. we took a lot of extras napkins (very cheap ones at that) & were reminded of the garfield strip below.
the music was way too loud (jimmy john's subs is like that too) i supposed that's to discourage people from staying too long. but i can't see how anyone can stand to work there. we had to practically shout our order to the cashier. the chairs had now padding, so we ate in the car. and the place is decorated with every good write-up & review the company ever had. even in the bathrooms! i guess you could call the style smug superiority. i could see a few, perhaps a dozen spread out over the place, but they must have had at least 100.

some fall weather

with overcast days & cooler temperatures, especially at night.

i prefer this kind of weather. i'm not a fan of bright, sunny days.

halloween whopper

burger king's new burger is a version of a "black" whopper they had in japan. except it had black cheese as well as the black bun & used squid ink for the coloring.

i had one the other day & was not impressed.
first; there was supposed to be A-1 sauce (most new burgers at BK have A-1 now, did they buy them out? or is it some kind of partnership, like my brother suggested?) "infused" into the bun. it didn't taste like it. second; my brain kept thinking it was weird to eat something that color, because we associate black with rot. third; because the bun is black you get it in your teeth & it looks bad. so either take a toothbrush and toothpaste with you to brush in the bathroom or rinse our your mouth with water, several times if needed.
