Girl Scout Cookies

Posted by Adam54 on Sunday, March 17, 2013

So...Jake's daughter wants to get a thousand orders. Let's help her out. I've not received word from Regina on how exactly this'll work, but let's start getting things lined up, eh? I'm sure it would be fine to place an order and let the family keep the cookies or donate them to a food shelf in the area or something as well in lieu of shipping them to you, but we can work all that out later. $4 a box is what I'm told.

I'm down for 5 boxes. Who else is in?

I shouldn't speak for what others will do, but Moneybags Chin Dimple will make up the rest of the orders to 1,000 after all other orders are tabulated. At the moment that puts him at 995 boxes. This number may change.

 True. Plus there's the currency exchange to consider. That's $3980 to go which is...what....14 Pounds? Which is also what I would gain from eating 5 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies. This is destined to be, Dalty!

 I already bought some off her.  Me and Jake used to joke that she was my cookie pusher and that now she had a pipeline into Europe as an international cookie dealer. :(

 I'm in for five and I will create a flyer for my office from which to take orders, if that will help? When is your deadline to get you the totals?

 I've been told that Jarrod knows more details about how to place orders than I do. Help us out, Sparky?

Me? Actually, I was hoping you would pass along the information on how to place orders so I could post it in our article for the Mania veterans. Kim said on Facebook that they need to be ordered by the end of the week but that's all I know at the moment. So I need the information on how to order them as well! 

Adam, can you ask them for the info? Also, do the people need the cash by this week or when the cookies come in? Personally, I'm agreeing with your above thoughts. I'll place an order but I don't want them paying for shipping and handling...Whatever I order, they can keep and donate to a homeless shelter...

 Oh, okay, Regina told me today that you had talked to Kim, so I figured you knew what was what. I'll try to touch base with her tomorrow and see what I can figure out. Stay tuned!

Are they made with real girl scouts?

Pfft. Everybody knows they use Imitation Girl Scout.

Do Canadians pronounce it "girl scoot?"

It's closer to "scoat" than "scoot."

Incidentally, they pronounce the word "scoat" the same way Americans pronounce it.

But how do they pronounce "it"?

 Heard a little from Regina, she's going to check in with Kim on how this would work, but it sounds as if we'd have to send checks to her. I'll update again once I have an address to send to. Would we maybe want to chip in for flowers or a lifesize TARDIS or something as well?

  I am passing order forms throughout our office. People are telling me it's too late - that the GS cookie sales are over. I am telling them to order anyway. I will try to find out something from the GSA this afternoon. 

 

I'm up for flowers. Or a Tardis. Or a floral Tardis. Do you need me to do anything like look up the florists or is it being handled already?

 

Okay - dumb question here, but how does one send a Private Message here?

I don't believe you can.

 Update:

I have nothing further to update. I've heard nothing since this morning from Regina and certainly aren't going to prod her for details too much right now. If we don't get the info in time to order cookies, I'll at least try to get Kim's address and/or Regina's for those of us who'd want to send gifts. 

Or we could just save the trouble and let Dalty fund a family vacation to the Dr. Who Experience. All in favor, say aye?

NP - it seems kinda out of place talking Girl Scout cookies, but if it helps Julia in any small way, my office is all too eager to chip in - we have about twenty ordered, with many more people coming in tomorrow. Everybody will understand if the orders can't be placed.

Would there be any objection if I called the GSA and asked if any way we could order directly from them and make 100% sure that each and every sale gets credited to Julia?

It really sucks having to see Jim Belushi's face with every one of your posts.

 Sure, that sounds like a great plan. Good on you for thinking of it, sir. 

Also, just thought of this:

https://www.kintera.org/site/c.fmJUKcOZJkI8G/b.8077571/k.6133/Donate_to_...

That's a link to donate to the American Heart Association, which could be done in Jake's name. Just to throw it out there as well. We've got options, people!

 Ha! I'll work on that. Someone in another thread mentioned it may be stuck that way though.

One of the family messaged me about Jason's passing and I asked him to let me know if there's a memorial fund. If I get any info I'll let you know so I can pass it along to anyone interested.
