So you can imagine my dismay to discover that this weekend we have to move the clocks forward. That means that not only do I have to start getting up an hour earlier (bummer), but it's going to start to be pitch dark again when I do so (MAJOR bummer).
Yeah, I know, I get the "but it's sunnier later in the day" yada, yada, yada crap all the time. But, I'm sorry, I'd rather be able to wake up with the sun up, then get an extra hour of sunlight after work.
That's just me.
Now, on to a new rant. It's Girl Scout cookie time, and I have a daughter who's a Girl Scout, and not only is she a Girl Scout, but I'm actually one of the "cookie Moms."
This means I'm obligated to not only sell cookies, but am on the hook to buy multiple boxes for my family (although the local food pantry gets a sizable donation).
Now, I usually disapprove of having cookies in the house, primarily because if there's one thing that I have ABSOLUTELY NO WILLPOWER over, it's cookies.
I love cookies, and having boxes of Tag-A-Longs, Samoas and Dulce de Leches in the house is just not a good thing.
Thank God, that I don't like Thin Mints. Yes, I realize that's sacrilege, but the combination of chocolate and mint does nothing for me. Peanut butter and chocolate, on the other hand, that's an entirely different story.
As you can imagine, I generally order mostly Thin Mints.
To balance out the cookies I'm eating this week, I've gone vegetarian. In fact, I'm trying to eat mostly raw/vegan to balance out the extra calories from the cookies.
Thank God Girl Scout Cookies only around for just a few weeks every year.
