Steve was looking out the window yesterday evening and spied a couple of girl scouts delivering cookies in the neighborhood and began knocking on the window and waving them over. He wanted to buy some Thin Mints. They said they were only delivering cookies that had already been pre-ordered, but that he could place an order. He placed an order for 2 boxes. Dang!...no instant gratification. But about 10 minutes later we heard some little footsteps on the stairs and they reappeared with one leftover box. Sweet. The girl scouts said we could pay for both boxes on Friday, when they deliver box #2. They know we'll ante up, because they know we'll be wantin' more come Friday.
What is it about these little chocolaty bites that is so addictive? Is it the melty dark chocolate covering or the softly crispy cookie interior? Maybe the melange of mint and chocolate tastes in your mouth? Or is it simply that they are only available once a year? Hmmm.
I got an email today that lynda.com has a new "artist series" video available online. "The series takes an in-depth look at the work and processes of the design firm Pentagram and the designers David Carson, Milton Glaser, Paula Scher, Stefan Sagmeister, and James Victore." I think I'm going to check it out. You can sign up for $25/mo. and get access to all their great software training videos.
