Halloween 2008 Review!

« previous entry | next entry »

Ok, so last year, I gave my lineup of some typical 'best' and 'worst' Halloween costumes. But I decided that this year, I would simply veer off into another direction...namely, Spandex,
There are spandex enthusiasts, I might say, which are essentially people who enjoy the fabic. Ok, they enjoy it a lot. If you do not understand what I mean, than perhaps you'd best ask someone about it.
(I hate to stereotype but the site I visited will bring the giggles out of most heterosexuals, such as myself. ^_^ )
Essentially, just as there are people who enjoy the feel of other fabrics(perhaps for more than just running around pretending to be characters on Halloween), such as satin, leather and what have you, there are people who like spandex as well.
Mind you, the website that I had a look at has some really excellent superhero costumes, so I will at least give them that. Their black/silver Spiderman and even Captain America is comic-convention quality, and affordable.
I will even lay aside the questionable poses on most of the shots of the models. Except for the last one on this page. Please explain(click on 'change view' to see all poses)!

Now onto the every popular topic of CANDY....
I have to say that as a child here in America, I felt jipped when I recieved the following:

1)Smarties
2)lemon, lime or orange, flat lollipops
3)Tootsie Rolls
4)Generic Tootsie Rolls-blech!
5)Bad Taffy brands
6)Anything made by the brand 'Palmers'
7)Sweet Tarts(sorry, too tart for my tastes as a kid)
8)Anything similar to a 'Circus Peanut'(shudder)
9)Dumdum lollipops if you got a lame flavor, like lemon, orange, etc
10)Miniature Hershey's Dark Chocolate bars(as a kid, they were bitter to me)

I liked many types of candy, but every kid knew that the real loot was the 'bite size' versions of candy bars! Just about any kind that was popular would do nicely.
When I would return home after Trick-or-Treating, I would joyously organize my bounty. One pile for lollipops, one for hard candies, one for taffy and such, on for candy bars and M&M's and one for yuck stuff. :)
But ironically, by the time I had eaten most of my jackolantern-shaped bucket of good and even passable candies, I would choke down the worst at the bottom, because simply put, kids crave sugar. :P

Please, be safe this Oct. 31st, and if you do choose spandex, make sure you don't visit any bars with the words,'rod','steel' or 'flamingo' in the titles. ;)

Ta-Ta!

I think I know which ones you meant which you called molasses kisses-they were good to me.
Yes, I almost forgot that there are other smarties outside of America-I think I have seen the product you mean in a few specialty shops here.
You don't have Palmer's candy in Canada, and be thankful!
LOL on the circus peanut reaction. Essentially, they are these peanut shaped, orange-kind of marshmallow-like candies. They smell really creepy, like perhaps I am smelling a sort of malt(like Ovaltine has in it). Very hard to describe in flavor, except it's sugary and malty. That's the best I can do, and I am being charitable!
And, dark Hershey's makes you sneeze?? How come?

Well, I kind of like malt flavour - every time I go to a diner in the States I look for a malted, as they do not make them up in Canada (at least, no place I've looked). But maybe malt flavours should not come in nut shapes.

Actually, any dark good quality chocolate will make me sneeze - I guess it's as close to an allergic reaction I have to anything.
