Green Rant - I Need a Cookie!

Here it is St. Patrick's Day. My first "wearin' o' the green" with Ciarrán. Woot!

While I look forward to sharing the day with a bonafide tatting leprechaun, I do have one mean, green rant to vent.

I have not eaten a single Girl Scout cookie yet this year. No thin mints. No Do-Si-Dos. No Tagalongs. Not even one of those smelly Lemon Chalet Creams. This is a crisis.

Show me the cookies
At the risk of sounding like the Clara Peller of cookie-dom, where have all the Girl Scouts gone?

Not a single green sash or vested gal has graced my doorstep these past three years. Usually I see a table set up outside of the grocery store with girls hawking cookie boxes. This year, nary a representative of the Girl Scout movement is anywhere to be seen.

Luckily for you, I did find this cookie locator online. If not for that, y'all would have suffered through a fractured Bonnie Tyler lyric. (Think "Holding Out for a Hero," only crying out for a cookie!)

Good luck trying to get that song out of your head. Hope you have a cookie handy.

Today the sun is shining and I have high hopes of getting out of the house.

With a bit of the "luck o' the Irish," I will go ISO cookies to add to the rapture of warm rays and you all will be spared more fiendishly fractured songs or pallid poetry!

Tomorrow - Watch for a giveaway announcement.

Hope Ciarrán is going out and about with you, I am waiting patiently to see him in action!

I hope you get your fix soon! Lucky for me, granddaughter Eva is a girl scout. Sadly, half our cookies are gone but not forgotten... you know, once on the lips forever on the hips!

Oh, I don't know, you do pretty good with the poetry and the lyrics ;)
Good luck with the cookies - I haven't gotten any yet this year either! Need those Thin Mints! I love your 4 leaf clovers. I didn't get any made this year. (And yes, I'll be singing that song allllll night!)
