Ravings of a Mad Man: vol. 3.49

It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid then open it and remove all doubt

-Mark Twain

 

            This is the week of Halloween, which means scary movies and good candy.  I think that Halloween is probably one of the best holidays that don't the respect of canceling stuff.  You know how the big brothers of Halloween get their respect Halloween gets none.  Well I guess the big brothers, Christmas, Thanksgiving and the 4th of July, get about 95% respect because people still do stuff on these holidays.  Wouldn't that be neat if everything stood still for these days?  Anyway, I think that we, in America, should be more apt to not doing anything on Halloween.  By this I mean that nobody should work on this day except for those have to like the people that work on the big brothers of Hween. Yeah that would be cool.  Also in Ecuador, a country that doesn't celebrate Halloween but they do celebrate the day of the dead which is November 2nd, they make this drink, which is like a national tradition, called Colada Morada.  It is so good you can throw pretty much anything in there.  One year they had a competition to se who could make the best version of the drink.  Luckily I was there to taste all of them.  I have to admit that if the drink had pineapple in it, I loved it.  Other drinks had plumbs, and the rotten friend of plumb, the prune.  The point is the drink is good but I guess in order to make a good one it takes like 24 hours or something.  If only Merica had a national tradition food for Hween.  I think that my mom has been companying for this as well.  For as long as I can remember she has made sweet delicious cheese soup.   Oh man it is so good.  My favorite thing about the soup is the leftover.  Because she would always put them in those gallon cartons of ice cream, you know the bucket style.  Then after the soup had cooled down when you would go get some it would be more like a gel.  You can just plop some of that in a bowl and get some leftover breadsticks heat that up and engorge your belly with sweet delicious soup.  So America how about? Cheese soup for national meal on Hween?!  Will this be the end of candy corn?

                                   

Trivia Time:  Turns out that the quickest way to a man's heart is by Chuck Norris punching said man while listening to Stone Temple Pilots.  This week's question is why is election the first Tuesday of November? 

 

Beat the Odds Tip:  If you ever find yourself covered in angry ants don't panic because that is what angry ants survive on.  Pancakes are good.  Angry ants have all right!

                       

At what age should a person stop trick or treating?  I think that is a personal decision and if a person wants to trick or treat until they are old then they should go for it.  My only word of advice is do not leave your costume in your car.

 

Have a good week I know I will now keep your fingers crossed.
