My nine year old daughter is in girl scouts. She and I and another girl and her mom set up to sell cookies outside of Safeway last Saturday. In two hours, we sold 7 cases of cookies. It wasn't hard. I should say...the girls did it. The other mom and I just helped make change.

When someone would decline, the girls would respond with a polite "Thanks anyway!"

I have heard some pretty intense stories of major competition between girls who do this. I guess we're lucky that we're not in a troop like that.

Standing beside you in Ferndal...
I bought eight boxes of Shortbread (not Trefoils -- those are greasier) from our photo editor's daughter. His daughter is the only one I can find around here who uses that bakery instead of the Trefoil one. I did buy a box of Thin Mints from my boss' daughter for my hubby, though, just to be safe.

Shortbread is really the only one I like, and I always feel bad not buying them from the Scouts at the stores, but they all sell Trefoils here.

Ahem,

I will translate for my american cousins.

"Bob a Job:" an ol'English tradition of slave labor yardwork after which a cubbie gains an uncle, hence the saying, "bob's your uncle." Banned by the Magna Carta but still known to have pockets of practice in the Scottish borders.

"decimalisation:" what happens to the cubbie if the yard work is not adequately performed. For further reference, see "quartering."

Glad to be of assistance.

Shelley who?

Just kidding. She really did wreck her career with Troop Beverly Hills, though. Never seen it, but never heard anything positive about it, either.

Actually I think it's pretty hilarious.

Hey, I'm always in favor of a contrary opinion on an unpopular movie. To give but one example, I genuinely think Event Horizon is underrated.

Back on topic: I ate some of the tagalongs. They were good.

I wonder why the Girl Scouts here don't sell cookies. The ones I met do help in directing traffic though...

As mentioned in the Peanut Butter thread ... I ate a box of Peanut Butter girl scout cookies.

What was not mentioned was ... I also ate a box of Samoas ... a box of the mint ones ... and a box of the short bread ones.

Mr Peebz buys and saves them for me when I come home.
