desperate times. i need me a hookup.

I only got my sticky fingers on one box of Thin Mints this year, and the effin' rally monkey ATE THEM ALL. I am LIVID.

Does anyone know any Girl Scouts who want to do a little business?

Now that's a serious offense. BAD Rally Monkey.

When I was a girl scout I sold cookies and of course most everyone ordered Thin Mints. This was long ago when you took the order and the money, then later delivered the cookies. When the cookies came in, I ate every last box of thin mints. I couldn't help it. They were so good.

I had to go to all my neighbors and tell them. I think I paid off the last of my binge about a year ago.

Those cookies are hard to resist. But don't buy them from me.

Vent your anger bouncing on a bathtub bulging with Turkish Delight.

Even if you fall out of the window, you're guaranteed to come up smelling of roses.

Why do they even MAKE any cookies other than Thin Mints? It has been years since I've eaten one (I can no longer eat wheat) but still I can feel the smoothness of the chocolate coating and the satisfying crunch ... and then that delectable taste ...

JES said...

Let me know if you remain bereft tomorrow and I'll ask around. Someone at work must be selling them; they're on a lot of people's desks. For a few minutes.

And if the Girl Scouts really wanted your loyalty they'd start peddling Gin Mints.

PammyD said...

Stay away from the cookies! Has not anyone told you there's, like crack or something in those things? Those Girl Scouts are diabolical.

Rick Daley said...

Samoa's are good too, but Thin Mints rule. I put the box in the freezer and chow down a sleeve at a time.

I wish I could hook you up, but I'm out, too.

Catherine said...

I have one lonely box of TM here. And a case of lemon ones and almost a case of sugar free choc chip ones... yeah. Troop leader AND cookie mom.

WendyCinNYC said...

My next door neighbor's daughter is my Thin Mint dealer. I'm down to my last 1/2 sleeve and am getting the shakes.

nightsmusic said...

I've emailed my supplier to ask if she has any TMs left. I should hear back by tomorrow sometime and I'll let you know :D

Bad Rally Monkey! Coming between a woman and chocolate is a major offense. I imagine he'll be doing penance for that one for a long time, eh?

As far as the cookie choice goes...well you guy go ahead and adore the Thin Mints; give me all the Samoas! I am not that fond of Thin Mints. But I'll eat a truck load of Samoas and kill to get more.

Sarah said...

I feel your pain, and would be horribly tempted to share it with the RM if I were in your shoes.

Rick, I completely agree. Thin Mints taste best straight from the freezer.

I can pick some up for you, or you can visit this spot (conveniently *right* next to my office):

Charles Gramlich said...

Lana and I are holding but we don't have enough to share. Sorry, but we're bogarting our thin mints.

sonya said...

Oooh, that was a dirty trick. No can haz teh Thin Mints!

It's double-dirty since, like Shamrock Shakes, Thin Mints come but once a year.

You can find a Girl Scout in your area here:

(erg. that's kinda squicky when you think about it...)

jalexissmith said...

Gin Mints- ha! thats a good one!

RM needs to be punished. That is horrible!

moonrat said...

heehee. gin mints.

Di Francis said...

Madeleine Robbins can hook you up. Her lj is here: http://madrobins.livejournal.com/

Trust me. She's girlscout connected.

Anita said...

I used to love Thin Mints, too. Then I spent a couple years as a Girl Scout leader whose daughter sold 98 million boxes of Thin Mints. I had to deliver 97 million boxes in the middle of winter in Colorado. I ate the other million boxes and my thighs have never been the same. My daughter, however, earned a patch....which I then had to sew on her vest.

But if you REALLY want a box, I'm sure I can hook you up. You know where to find me. I'm the one with the biggish thighs. :)

If you dig deeply enough, Moonie, Alexis Smith's link will take you to the real pot o' gold at the end of the GS Cookie rainbow for NYC residents, here (emphasis mine, but I bet yours, too): "If you are a resident of one of the five boroughs of New York City and are interested in ordering 12 or more boxes of cookies..."

Presumably other GS Councils elsewhere have similar programs.

I have 1/2 a box at home. Why don't you stop by sometime.

Sharon Cullen said...

I have about 6 boxes in my basement. Yes, I'm a cookie mom. Let me know if you want them.

B.E. Sanderson said...

Oh, that's just mean. Thin mints are sacred. I hope you find a box. And that Rally Monkey is doing some type of penance.

Amethyst Greye Alexander said...

I don't know where you live, but you could always try the cookie finder at the Girl Scouts of America website.

http://www.girlscoutcookies.org/

It will direct you to a troop if they're still selling in you're area.

Unrelated comment here. Folks should go check out the fun query contest starting up over at super-agent Nathan Bransford's blog. Be an Agent for a day! It's a great contest. Go check it out!

PurpleClover said...

Well I found a good substitute are the Fudge Shoppe Grasshopper cookies on the cookie aisle at your local grocery store. :)


But they are just as addictive as the Thin Mints. Soooooo...

PT Hammonds said...

Yes, the Keebler Grasshopper cookies are a close substitute. And easy to find year 'round. During the holidays, they make an even better mint cookie that has the thick white mint part on the inside AND green stripes on top. We hoard them and keep them in the freezer. Still, they don't last long!

EmmaK said...

I am willing to do a deal. My Brownie still has a couple of boxes of Thin Mints left over. They may be a bit stale tho ...but for the true addict that shouldn't matter?

Rick Daley said...

I have yet to eat a stale Thin Mint. Or one that is freezer burnt, for that matter. They just don't last that long in my house...

Colorado Writer said...

Mint Oreos might take the sting away.

DadRat bribery! Woot!

Yikes!

Rally Monkey's going to need asylum in a country named Boyland if he keeps up with that crazy and murder-inducing behavior. What was he thinking? Okay, I guess he was thinking about all the chocolately, minty goodness of the thins mints, but the threat of grievous bodily harm should have stayed his hand when the last few cookies presented themselves.

I don't know any girl scouts but I have a friend who's a troop leader. If you don't get your fix, let me know and I'll ask her if she can hook you up.

Is it too anarchistic to suggest this link?: http://www.kottke.org/09/04/girl-scout-cookie-recipes

Don't want to offend the Cookie Supremacy, but I am a do-it-myself girl at heart...

Chelsea said...

Is it wrong to admit that I just get Keebler Grasshoppers, and they taste just like Thinmints?

Jena said...

if you can't find them to buy, how about trying to make your own?

I don't like Think Mints, but I love Tagalongs, and since I can't get them here in Canada (Girl Guides have a far more limited array to choose from), I have to make my own.
