To cheer you up on this holiday season evening, allow me to offer you a platter of freshly baked cookies. Actually, I don’t have any cookies, but I can offer you this Themed Things list of cookie-related goodness.
Some Cookies for You
Oh, Chocolate Chip Cookies
so high on the shelf
hiding inside of the jar
I’m not tall enough
to reach you myself.
So near, and yet so very far
An folktale about a human-shaped cookie who comes to life and runs off, taunting those who chase him:
Run, run, as fast as you can!
You can’t catch me!
I’m the Gingerbread Man!
| My Fortune Cookie told me:
You will pay for your sins. If you have already paid, please disregard this message.
Get a cookie from Miss Fortune
Girl Scout: Is this made from real lemons?
Girl Scout: I only like all-natural foods and beverages, organically grown, with no preservatives. Are you sure they’re real lemons?
Girl Scout: I’ll tell you what. I’ll buy a cup if you buy a box of my delicious Girl Scout cookies. Do we have a deal?
Wednesday: Are they made from real Girl Scouts?
¹ If you want to see some very attractive gingerbread men, Mad just posted some photos that make me want to get baking. Or at least make me want to visit someone who does some baking.²
² As further proof that this is the season for cookies, BipolarLawyerCook has posted not once, but twice on cookie-related topics. Cookies!!!
³ Except maybe for these cookies made from jellyfish. I think they’re pretty much safe wherever.

Oooh. Cookies. Mad’s gingerbreads really did look awesome, eh? And now I’m singing “C is for Cookie,” at 4am. Thanks ;-)
Here’s a nice (counting) (pop-up) cookie book:
Sorry about that.
Did you get your own fortune?
What are you doing up at 4 am??
Excellent addition. I don’t know that one.
I received a lovely fortune, “Never try to tapdance with parrots on a shrub.”
Wise words, indeed.
i’m totally hungry now and staring at the cookies a friend sent me.
What a fun post! My little guys were gingerbread men in the Nutcracker and are now obsessed with them!
I’m telling you, that Gingerbread man story is creeeeeeeepy. As is the Nutcracker, if you read the original. Hoffman was a weirdo.
