Earlier tonight, I brain-dumped a whole bunch of Arrow of Light ideas and suggestions to our Webelos den leaders. I may get to make a half-sheet cake for the celebration, which I *really* hope means I get to use fireworks sparklers since I recently learned that the burn ban does not apply to city property. Odds are I'll just get to do some fun icing decorations like the little campers that have been in every Wilton yearbook for ages, but hey, I'll take any excuse to play with cake decorations. It's constructive fun with sugar!

I'm also excited that our den is going to tour a local news station's studio this weekend. They don't usually do tours for kids as young as ours, but one of our den's families has a connection and we just have to be on our very best behavior. I think we'll do okay since every Tiger Cub has an adult partner with them at all Cub Scout functions.

It's Girl Scout Cookie time!...

In Girl Scout news, it's Girl Scout Cookie Time! If you're in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, I made a post over at dfwtx on how to buy cookies in your neighborhood. If you don't want cookies for yourself, you can make a donation to the Gift of Caring project to purchase cookies to be donated to military personnel or local charitable organizations. http://community.livejournal.com/dfwtx/757601.html

Drop me an e-mail by the 20th with what you want and I'll put in an order for you with my designated Girl Scout, who's the daughter of a PTA mom I see every day. The girls deliver them starting February 10th and I'll get them in the mail to you by the next business day.

Cookies are $3.50 a box and our local council's cookie lineup is the Little Brownie Bakers one: Do-Si-Dos, Samoas, Tagalongs, Thin Mints, Trefoils, fudge-dipped shortbread All Abouts, cinnamon spice Café Cookies and Sugar Free Little Brownies.

Feh. I got to this too late, but I will support my local girls anyhow. Hell, maybe by the time they hit the stores in March I will have more money!

I will need to get some GS cookies, though probably locally. As a lifetime member I feel it's my duty to eat at least a box of Thin Mints and one of Samoas (though I know they don't call them that anymore...and every year there seem to be fewer cookies in the box...). After all, I'm a growing boy and GS cookies will help me in my pursuit for genderfucked masculinity.

The name shift depends on the official Girl Scout Cookie baker supplying the sale in your local council. Little Brownie Bakers makes Samoas, ABC Bakers/Interbake makes Caramel DeLites.

I claim that buying Girl Scout Cookies now so easily makes up for all the shivering cold door-to-door and booth sales time I put in back in the day. This year I just got an e-mail heads-up from a family I know through PTA that their daughter's selling cookies and they take pre-orders by e-mail.
