The bees are not flying…

What a wonderful day!

 It’s dark, and raining, but it’s raining, above 50 degrees!  I feel like Plath’s bees, tasting the spring.  I think we all do — all the folks stopping by the bookstore have been uncommonly cheerful today.

Another reason to celebrate is that Parnassus: Poetry in Review came in the mail — it’s ginormous, practically a doorstop.  A poetry doorstop.  Glorious!

And lastly, but by no means the least, I celebrate Girl Scout cookies.  Specifically, the caramel delight variety (formerly known as samoas) of which I purchased a whopping 4 boxes from the lovely Foxtowne Diner in town.  They’re selling them right there behind the counter, there’s a whole section of them. 

Unfortunately, if you’re looking for caramel delights, there’s only one box left.  Sorry.  I’ll give you one if you ask nicely.

 Cookie, that is, not box.

  1. OH! The cookies formerly known as Samoas! So fantastic! So lovely!

  2. Indeed! May a lovely Snack, in the form of the formerly Samoa, kindly stop for you — nay! may it pop its very self into your mouth!

  3. Something about those nice neighbor girl scout girls made me buy FOUR BOXES of cookies. I had to leave the house while they were disposed of by the hordes, so tempted was I to eat them all. The problem with them is that they are so small, deceptively, enticingly so.

  4. You mean I’m not supposed to eat them all?

  5. That’s how I used to sell my girl scout cookies. Behind the counter at my parent’s drive-in restaurant.

  6. LOL How lucky! I confess, I actually had to quit the Girl Scouts because I so dreaded going door-to-door or begging my multitudes of family via telephone for orders. Dreaded!
