…stay sweet

Today is a very special day, crusaders. Today we celebrate those small sweet moments in life. Yes, take a moment to savor those tiny dollops of sweetness, it’s Chocolate Chip Day!

And on this rainy Tuesday (or any day), I ask you, is there anything better than a chocolate chip? Read the rest of this entry


…feel crumby

Amongst other things, social media has brought with it a seemingly endless parade of “random” holidays celebrating just about everything under the sun. It begs the question, “If we’re celebrating everything, are we really celebrating anything?”

Still, some of these days still require our respect, so today I have to insist that we pause for the occasion, which just happens to be all about…

If you’re a would-be holiday baker, who just can’t seem to find the motivation this year, today is your lucky day. Forget the cheer, joy, and general pleasure of baking holiday cookies,  Earth needs you. Read the rest of this entry

…be on your honor there a badge for hand modeling? There should be...

For an organization who raises funds by sending out adorably small children to sell cookies, the Girl Scouts sure to seem to stir up an awful lot of trouble.

It takes a trained eye to see through the cookies, color-coded uniforms, and character building exercises, but once you do it’s shocking.

To you and I it may look like they’re teaching girls across the globe to be open-minded, think for themselves, possibly be considerate of those with beliefs different from their own, and just generally be decent, driven human beings (with a few mildly scarring camping and canoe lessons thrown in there)…that’s just what they want you to think…

What have they done now?

What haven’t they done? They’re spreading communism, denouncing God*, promoting alternative lifestyles (because their critics can’t say lesbian), poisoning our bodies with gluten, and I don’t know what’s up with these “Carmel deLites” and “Peanut Butter Patties,” but they’re called Samoas and Tagalongs…clearly part of their socialist agenda.

Makes you wonder what kind of campfire songs they’re singing nowadays.

It’s just sad how far the organization has fallen since 2WC left its ranks…crossed that bridge…hung up that sash…wait…how do you leave the Girl Scouts?


“Girl Scout Cookies: The Latest Controversies”: TIME

…bi-daily smile…

…okay maybe it is a little creepy…


The real victim of this cookie dough shortage.

I’d like to start by saying that when dealing with a crisis the most important thing to do is not to panic.

Now for the bad news–THE COOKIE DOUGH IS GONE!

Well not gone, but there is a Nestle Toll House cookie dough shortage (is there another type of cookie dough?) looming on the horizon.

Nestle recently informed the FDA that two samples of their cookie dough had tested positive for E. coli.

Now I know some of you might be thinking that satisfying your cookie dough craving is totally worth the risk (it’s not). 

Sorry, but you won’t get the chance since none of the E. coli positive product left the factory.

Unfortunately for all you cookie dough addicts, the news only gets worse.

Production of the new dough doesn’t start until January 25th, and won’t be in stores until early March (keep breathing).

I know it’ll be tough, but that’s just the way the cookie crumbles. 

Of course, I’m sure we all realize that the important thing is that the E. coli infected cookie dough was contained, and no one got hurt.   

However, if there’s no new cookie dough until March, well, lets just say I’m glad I don’t live on Sesame Street. 

If you really need to get your cookie dough fix try this: Chocolate Chip Cookies

I hear they’re almost as good as the prepackaged kind, and rumor has it that they taste even better if you bake them in the oven.  Just a suggestion.

…and try to keep in mind the real victim of this cookie dough shortage: C is for Apple?
