Saturday 9: "C" Is For Cookie

Saturday 9: C Is for Cookie
Don't blame Sam. Harriet requested Cookie Monster. 

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) This week's featured artist, Cookie Monster says his favorite TV show is Monsterpiece Theater. What show do you try never to miss?

The Big Bang Theory, Hawaii Five-O, a couple of ridiculously dumb reality shows.

2) Though he goes by Cookie Monster professionally, he is still called Sid by his family. When will you next get together with your relatives?

Our son and his family will be coming for a picnic on Father's Day.  That's it, I think.  I see our daughter and her son and my mom and stepdad nearly every day.  I'm not that close (relationship or distance) to any of my other relatives and Hubby isn't terribly close to his family so we only see them now and then.

3) Now for the cookie questions! Where do you weigh in on this age-old controversy: Is a brownie a cookie or a cake?

I honestly consider them to be in a class of their own.

4) Fig Newtons contain no cholesterol. Do you read nutrition labels before eating snacks? Or does knowing the truth about your favorite sweets ruin your enjoyment?

Sometimes I do if I'm really in the mood to be good, but for the most part I don't and knowing doesn't bother me.  That's part of the problem.

5) Biscotti are designed for dipping into drinks. Do you like to dunk your cookies?  

No.  I don't get the appeal of soggy cookies and crumbs in my drink.

6) Do you prefer cookies made with milk chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips or semi-sweet chocolate chips? Or are you a rebel who prefers butterscotch chips?

I will choose Oatmeal Scotchies over every other cookie.

7) Bill Murray once said, "Raisin cookies that look like chocolate chip cookies are the main reason I have trust issues." Do you like raisin cookies? 


8) Nabisco still sells animal-shaped cookies in a red box that looks like a train car labeled, "Barnum's Animals." However Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus gave their last-ever performance on May 21, 2017. Have you ever been to the circus?

Quite a few times and I'm sad that circuses are being forced out of existence. There is so much to see at them even if you remove the animal acts.

9) Have you ever received a memorable fortune in a fortune cookie?

The one that amused me the most said, "You are the crispy noodle of life."

Thanks for stopping by today. If you'd like
to read more or join in the fun, yourself, 
head over to see Sam @ the Saturday 9 site!

Now this girl is off to do one of her favorite summer things...the used book sale at the library!


  1. #5 -- I agree. I don't think dunking benefits the cookie or the milk.

  2. I have the same thoughts about closing the circuses. There's so much more to them than just animal acts.
    And I think you're right about brownies.

    Have fun at the book sale!

  3. Not sure how to take that 'crispy noodle' thing. It would stick with me for a while.

  4. Oh, you are the crispy noodle of life! How cool. And I think brownies are brownies, too.

  5. Ditto what you said about raisins! Mother kept putting them in my lunch bag and they kept mysteriously disappearing .....

  6. You read my Saturday 9 so you know that I DO dunk cookies. Not long enough for them to get soggy, but I love to dunk and so does Joe. That's a funny fortune from your cookie!
