Happiness is...

...snacking on the rare and wonderful item known as a Samoa... Girl Scout cookie, that is...

I finally tracked down the Girl Scouts. I have been jonesing for some cookies, and I haven't been able to find them for quite some time... I'm talking years, people... I guess they don't go door to door anymore, which is sad. They were set up at a table with cookies at the store when I went in to buy milk. Of course I had to buy a box. And knowing that my husband will want some when he gets home, I found out they will be in the store every weekend until the end of the month, so he can go get some when he comes home... That's right, I have a box of Samoas and I'm not sharing... ;)

I also asked the troop leader if they still do pre-orders, because I can spend a lot of money stocking up on cookies... She said they do pre-orders in January, so I told her to swings some girls by my office and I'll be happy to order more than one box... I would have gotten a box of each one that I like while I was at the store, but I had limited cash and didn't bring my check book... I mean, I wasn't expecting to be able to get GS cookies today....

I'm glad they had several adults with the girls today, but it is sad that it has come to that... About a week ago, some kid in a ski mask stole the cash box for a GS set up at one of the other stores... Made off will all their cash, about $800 worth. Who would steal from Girl Scouts, you ask? Some 17 yr old punk... Yeah, they caught the guy. Some good samaritan got the license plate of the get-a-way car... I'm glad they caught him... It's sad that this is the kind of world we are living in...

Another group I want to see is the Boy Scouts... I don't care much for their popcorn that they sell, but I like supporting these kinds of groups, so I usually order at least one box of popcorn. I haven't seen them outside of my parent's church. I know I could order from the kids there, but I don't want them to have to ship it up here... So, hopefully the Boy Scouts come around. They did last year, but at a time when I was out of the office so I didn't get to place an order.

Huh, I have a box of Samoas my Mom sent me. I was going to bring them home to share (feeling guilty for Ketchikan I guess...) However, in light of this new information I regret to inform you that I will be enjoying them myself. AGAIN.

Take that.

Not sharing the Samoas... (grumbling)

Oh the stories I could tell of Girl Scout leaders gone bad!

Boy Scouts sell popcorn in the fall and Girl Scouts usually in the spring. Usually you can call the local council office and they will be able to tell you where to get it.

Yeah for Samoas!! I got a box over the weekend too! I did share with the boys and my MIL though. Don't know when the girl scouts will be out again though. The girl we bought them from only had Samoas and Thin Mints (ones DH doesn't like), so DH was disappointed. Next year I'll have to order some from my cousin's girl when she e-mails me about them.
