Out of the Blue

Oh joy! MrsBlue came home yesterday with a favorite harbinger of the warmer months: Girl Scout cookies! Our silly Samoa experimentation behind us (apologies to John Cash), we are again fully in Thin Mint mode. I think we're going to have to start buying a couple of extra boxes a year though, as every year there seem to be one or two fewer cookies in each box... I'm concerned it won't be long before they are selling these individually.

Ironically, you can get 4 decent Strats for the price of a Paul Custom.

Okay, poor choice of an analogous guitar, but hey, I don't play and the Fender Strat is about the only other guitar I know.

"Get her a digital camera. "

Gadzuks! Why didn't I think of that! That is a GREAT idea! Thanks!

She applied 1.5 years ago.. she did her Bachelor's and now finished her Teacher's COllege, and she scored second in the physical among women! And she is 26 (older than a lot of candidates).. so all these things worked in her favour... she thinks she will be heading to Regina July 1st! I am so proud of her!!!

As opposed to what? The Intel Fender Stratocaster that, while more expensive and poorer value, offers newbie friendlyness and excellent compatibility?

because I am so damn uncreative (is that a word) I need some help.. my girlfriend graduated from Teacher's College.. and I can't think of a decent present to buy her for it... a watch, ring, jewlery is kinda boring... I was thikning of something like a DVD player, but she probably won't use it.. she has a TV.. she has a l33t computer (courtesy of me)... got any ideas?].
Get her a digital camera.

.. she got into RCMP (federal police for Canada aka a Mountie) .. so I was thinking about maybe getting her something for her RCMP training..

Cool, this is also what I'm working towards. How long did it take her to complete the application process?

The last book that Stephen King wrote that I really enjoyed was The Tommynockers. The Langoliers was pretty good as well. I liked seeing Balki in the TV movie the did of that one.

I don't know if King has lost it or I just grew out of his stuff.


I've enjoyed his last few books quite a bit. I thought Dreamcatcher was very good and feel that Hearts in Atlantis might be the best thing he's ever written.

Of course I could be wrong... but really, what are the chances of that happening twice?

You will however have to edit the registry to make the guitar recognize both pickups, then install some custom drivers for the bridge hardware (har har, get it? Oh, never mind)

It's a Les Paul Custom so I'm sure it plays just fine. You will however have to edit the registry to make the guitar recognize both pickups, then install some custom drivers for the bridge hardware (har har, get it? Oh, never mind)

My issue is with that hideous color. To put such a finish on an LP should constitute some kind of war crime.

Samoas are clearly the superior product. All other cookies are *clearly* no more than poorly made, dirty Samoa wanna-bes. This is a fact. Look it up in the Bible.

The prescence of live worms in the shuttle debris merely confirms what we've all suspected - The Many obviously took over the shuttle and caused its crew to become hybrids. I wonder if SHODAN had any role here..

19. girl sprout cookies May 1, 2003, 13:38 tempus
 
huh, i think they just finished selling girl sprout cookies here several weeks ago, but i couldn't tell ya for certain, everything kinda blurs into on for me (ADD.)

Think mints are best when kept in a freezer then eaten

But my favorites are dosido's which are now called peanut butter cookies or some crap like that. well, atleast here thats what they are called. You can also call them nutter butters

It probably plays like crap, being that it has the AMD label on it.

Oh it probably plays alright, just really, REALLY hot.

Yeah, I was gonna say I've had them for months now...Maybe Mrs. Blue is holding out on him?]

That and the suspiciously lower number of cookies in each box, hmm?
