totally stealing this.

Wait, is it still stealing if it's a meme? I hope so. Makes me feel dangerous..

I think I kind of sold Girl Scout cookies. Well, I was a Brownie and I did all sorts of weird do- gooding things so I did the equivalent of selling cookies. I hated Brownies and was the worst Brownie ever. Not sure what this says about my character.

Cam said...

Um, lanyard?

Helen said...


I did the brownie thing but all I realaly remember is that they taught us to build campfires but they never let us light them. Cue adult pyromania...

Tamara said...

Shania: Well then I totally don't give you permission to use this meme. Does that make you feel bad ass enough ;-)

Po: I would have hated Brownies too. The only Brownies allowed should be the yummy chocolate desserts, IMO.

Cam: Yes, lanyard.

Helen: Good - I look forwrad to reading your list. I'm a bit of a pyro without ever having been a Brownie.
