Cookies of Evil.

Posted on Mar 06, 2008. 11 comments

I've been so busy stuffing my gob full of girl scout cookies I haven't been able to bring myself to post. I blame it on the dramatic drop in my sugars after the chocolate covered minty cookies crash my hard drive. Those little sash wearing, badge earning moppets are the minions of the debil. Next year I refuse to be sucked in for five boxes no matter how cute the pushers of sinister yet perfectly round morsels of sin. My self control has gotten so bad I've altered my diet to minimize the consumption of other foods. At this rate I expect to be able to eat regularly again by the first Tuesday of next month. In honor of this distinction I will be renaming myself "Captain Tightpants."
In other news I've cast on for two sweaters in search of the perfect sweater
The Sahara sweater by Wendy Barnard.

The Icelandic Yoke Sweater by Elizabeth Zimmermann.

I've also purchased the pattern for the Simple Bodice by Stefanie Japel (She's also a Physicst, yo. But I bet she doesn't eat girl scout cookies by the pound).
When I'm done I'll have three beautiful sweaters. One of which will become America's Next Top Sweater for me, Captain Tightpants. Stay tuned, Kittens.

    And what does Andria mean, peanut butter cookies aren’t breakfast? They are too.

    They were selling them outside Trader Joe’s, and they looked so cute… I ducked. Smiled, but ducked.

    i could kill for some girl scout cookies being an ex-pat. don’t know what we got till it’s gone… but thanks for also reminding me that since i too would be tempted to go by the box rather than the individual cookie i’m lucky they’re beyond my reach.

    I like Sahara, I jsut haven’t brought myself to the point of purchase…yet.
    And tell me about the girl scout cookies. I HAD four boxes…I’m down to 2 after…oh 4 days?

    I love girl scout cookie time, but I hate myself when I’m done with them, and have to re-teach my brain not to instantly go apeshit whenever I see that box with some smiling girl scout on the box, who’s probably laughing AT ME, and not with me because she knows what a gluttonous sucker I am for paying four stinkin bucks a box for those damn cookies. I also have to keep telling myself that peanut butter cookies ARE NOT BREAKFAST.

    I’ve been coveting the simple bodice sweater for a long time. That may have to be my next go at the elusive perfect sweater, too.

    I think the deep v will be very flattering on women with our type of assets. And I don’t mean Tightpants.
