You'll find my picture in the dictionary next to 'self-control'

Me: I am pretty sure I am going to eat an entire box of Girl Scout cookies before the day is over.
My mom: That's OK. It's not like you do stuff like that all the time.
Me: Umm ... I don't know if I'd say THAT.
(Pause.)
Mom: It's not like you do it every week?
Me: Hmmm ...
Mom: Every day?
(Another pause.)
Me: Yeah, OK. I guess we can say every day.

OMG...I'm the same way...tagalongs and thin mints are my weeknesses. I had 4 different girls sell me cookies and so I ended up with 16 boxes of cookies in the end....8 tagalongs and 8 thin mints. They were ALL gone within 2 weeks!

hehe. Isn't that why God made exercise? So you can eat a box of cookies with a smaller amount of guilt than if you hadn't worked out??

What is it about those d@mn cookies that bring about nirvana? Sheesh, do they put crack in them?

Mmmm, Girl Scout cookies. I think I need to go break into the cabinet now, and I'd been so good! But you know what would be even better? Girl Scout cookies on a cake! I saw that on Ace of Cakes the other night and can't stop thinking about it. Mmmm samoas. Mmmm thanksalot. Mmmm calories!

Besides, I'd call eating the entire box of cookies a late birthday present to yourself!

I try to eat them when my husband is around. He will put a whole one in his mouth and chew quickly, while I take small bites to make it last longer. That way if we do finish a box, more of the cookies end up in his belly.

:D

are we talking those coconut/caramel ones??

Lack of self control is such a situation is totally understandable!

LOVE LOVE LOVE me some GS cookies - - so, I try to stay as far away from them as possible!

(I'm not always successful though . . . )

One time I gave my family this huge lecture about eating healthy, blah, blah, blah, having totally forgotten about all the boxes upon boxes of GS cookies I'd ordered. They showed up the next day while everyone was out of the house. So I hid them and ate them ALL BY MYSELF! In like three days!!

CRIPES!

Ummm yeah, - I wish I didn't resemble that but I SO do!

I am a Samoa girl ALL THE WAY! I was really good though and only (only! haha) got two boxes this year. And yes, they are completely gone. :)

And this is why the cookies can't even come live at my house! I have no self control and would eat the whole box in about 2 minutes.

I seriously need blinders going into the grocery store lately as to avoid the girl scouts ;)

thin mints? belive it or not...I don't like girl scout cookies! Am I still considered an American if I say that?

 
At 12:41 AM, Blogger Manic Mom said...

You make me laugh.

Did you eat them all. Tell me they were samoyans? which always make me think of those big fat Chinese wrestler guys in diapers. Oh SUMOS...

Did you see that reality show about the place in Baltimore that makes cakes? They were hired to do a Girl Scout Cookie cake and they almost couldn't because they kept eating the materials.

Girl, tell me about it. Yesterday I found the box I had hidden from myself, accidentally of course, and I ate one whole roll of the peanut butter cookies, dipped in milk of course. Can I get any stupider?? Talk about not sleeping!

 
At 11:42 PM, Blogger Moanna said...

I think of it as community service calories.

 
At 2:13 PM, Blogger Shauna said...

A whole box of chocolate covered almonds for me. Yum!

 
At 2:14 PM, Blogger Andie said...

it's near impossible to NOT eat the whole box...

just sayin...

OOpsie when I IM'ed with my mom today I was giving her my views on Spitz. I told her I'd rather be the ho not the wife, and that if I were the wife I would leave and take all his money and let him rot in jail, wheras if I were the hooker, I would want him to call me and spen 29,000 for a weekend again.

Girl Scout Cookies and being Hooker same thing pretty much.

Hmmm, what flavor? Not that it matters, they are like chips, you can't eat just one!
