You know what time it is? Its Girl Scout Cookie time. A time of year I used to look forward to, indulge in, salivate over. But now there's the Blitz. The stupid, ruining-my-life Blitz.
Because I like to support local girl scouts, having been a scout myself, and because I have no self control and freakin' love girl scout cookies so much, I just bought six boxes of cookies. Two boxes of thin mints, for the purists in this house, and because they're the best deal, and four boxes of Tagalongs, those wonderful shortbreads with a dollop of peanut butter covered in chocolate. My favorites
They are now sitting on the dining table, taunting me. Mocking me. I'm extra hungry, too, because I didn't have a proper lunch. Mostly because I drank extra wine last night.
For the first time, I checked the calories on these Tagalongs. These little fuckers have 140 calories per serving, and a serving is two cookies. I have easily eaten an entire box of them in one day before, so almost 1000 calories worth of cookies. Is it any wonder I'm such a cow?
They are so delicious, though. Its breaking me heart to sit here and not eat any. I wished I loved exercise as much as I love food. I said this wouldn't become a weight loss blog, and I'm sorry to bore you with talk of calories and longing, but fucking Girl Scout Cookies? During period week?? Did you ever see Kung Fu Panda? Remember the part where he is up in the rafters eating Monkey's almond cookies, and he's just stuffing them in his face and crumbs are flying everywhere? That's who I want to be right now. The universe is testing me...
