It's been very rainy today. Thinking about going to pumpkin patch tomorrow even though Joshua works. It'd be my last chance before parents leave for Vegas.

We went last year and had a nice time but weren't prepared for the heat. This year Amy really wants to ride the horses there.

I would like to be working, but currently I am staring out my window. I.T. set me up with a new computer yesterday. That is the good news, then they forgot to test anything. So nothing works, syncs etc. This should be in the b&a thread I suppose.

not to change the topic if there is one, but pumpkin flavored items are the worst foodie craze ever.

^ insert picture of skittlebrau.

I just don't like pumpkin in general...but there is an item here or there I enjoy.

pumpkin joe joes from trader joes are great.

pumpkin gum, pumpkin flavored milk, pumpkin creamer, pumpkin anything else..get out of my life. I was getting groceries last night and saw pumpkin flavored whip cream. its a white girl pushed issue for sure.

I just really want pumpkin crunch cake (or pie) and nothing else

My favorite crunch comes from a bowling alley and they have their recipe online

i love pumpkin pie, so it's not like i have anything against pumpkin in general. it's just a little too omnipresent right now, especially in beers where it's like every single brewer simply has to have a pumpkin ale

Pumpkin tea really gets me because I can't see how that tastes good but I'm not huge on crazy flavored teas to begin with.

I had no heard of the pumpkin tea. I am with you, not sure how that would be a taste anyone would be in favor of.

as for the beers. I have not tried a pumpkin ale, but I do enjoy the variety of apple brews and ciders. I think they lend themselves to compliment the beer better. I did try an ace pineapple ale and I got to say it was fantastic.

is it pumpkin tea or pumpkin spice tea?

pumpkin tea could be pretty muted in a good way because actual pumpkin-flavored stuff isn't nearly as sweet as pumpkin spice.

it's why i like pumpkin pie but don't like most pumpkin flavored stuff. the actual pumpkin makes it so it's not too rich

ah.

they're usually my go-to tea brand but yeah their flavored stuff is usually too overpowering for me. i have a whole box of the peppermint in my kitchen right now that's been there for ages because of that.

Pumpkin based food is pretty uncommon here in the Netherlands, but it gets more popular to get with the Halloween theme every year. I never had anything with pumpkin in it in my life.
But my mother was visiting the other day, and we made pumpkin soup. I'm not a soup kinda guy, but holy shit! That pumpkin soup was fucking insane!
I guess it was the combination of the grainy texture of the pumpkin and the freshness of the orange and apple we threw in there.
Delicious!

My parents left for Vegas like they do every year and so I'm on staycation for about a week. I don't know what to do with myself so I fired up GTA V and just got Franklin and Chop into a car. Now I'm on a hill just listening to Radio Mirror Park.

I've been thinking about another gta5 run. Is xbox one backwards compatible with the 360?

GTA 3 will always be my favorite. I remember when that came out during my senior year of college, my roommates and I all blew off our semester finals playing it. It truly was simpler times.

yes but only certain games. not sure if gta v would be backwards compatible since there is a xbone version of the game.
