    I've got 6 dozen chocolate chip chunk, 2 dozen oatmeal raisin, and a dozen italian lace cookies(although they might not make it because they're crumbling... I started with 2 dozen)

    Fantastic looking cookies! I'm bringing a couple of my children today, and I know they will be eager to donate money to Child's Play and get a closer look at those AVengers and Creepers. :)

    I didn't see any Cookie Brigadiers today until 11:15pm when I asked in BYOC if I could get some cookies. You guys could seriously make a killing if you swung by the D&D/Tabletop area now and then - a lot of the D&D events/games take 2-3 hours or more, and our table of 7 people would have bought dozens of cookies (Sorry if I annoyed anyone with my repeated tweets pleading for cookies. We were hungry).

    I'm in costume and distributing - but don't have twitter access atm, will try to swing by for coverage :)

    Apologies, we've been a bit short on distributors, and Internet was not so great. We'll try to keep that area covered today!

    I headed over there but didn't know where you guys were, so hit up the D&D line instead. :( Also, keep tweeting! If the intertoobs are slow, we'll have a better chance of getting your message if it doesn't come through right away.

    Thanks to the cookie brigaders and your selfless barrage of empty calories.

    I want to make special mention to whoever made the brownie-filled chocolate chip cookies, they're one of the best cookies I've had in ages and are an inspired idea on the level of partitioned bread and the spork. I've told EVERYONE I know about them...might want to copyright that shit.

    EDIT: I was the weird dude in the blazer who donated for the rest that you had. I don't think you could've brought enough of those.

    That's awesome!!!!!!

    hey, who was the guy with the Bacon Chocolate Cookies?!
    Oh gods! Those were amazing, I was taking little bites of them all day trying to make it last. So good!

    - Biting's excellent! It's like kissing. Only there's a winner.

    I wanted to give a big shout-out and thanks to everyone who supported the Cookie Brigade and Child's Play by donating this year: you guys are amazing, we love you!

    Also, a big thanks to the Bakers and Distributors without whom there wouldn't be secret cookie eating at PAX! I hope to see you all again at PAX Prime (or East, if you can't make it to Prime! =) )

    Had such a great time as a distributor. Maybe next year I'll have a not-dumb-phone so I can follow tweets ... but either way - I'm in again next year :D

    Whoever did the chocolate chip cookies with the oreos in the middle.... That was one of the most awesome cookies I have ever eaten.

  • VThornheartVThornheart Registered User regular
    Yay! I'm really glad you had a good time Ishtra, it was great having you distribute with us!

    And indeed Luptonium, those were made by none other than Punzie - the same gal who runs the MMT, and will be leading logistics for the Cookie Brigade at the next PAX East! =)

    You guys were lifesavers this year, always magically appearing while I was starving waiting in line! Also, the katamari balls? Little balls of cookie heaven, I am going to buy at least one billion of them next year. Thank you so much!

  • MASeffectMASeffect Registered User regular
    Such a fun experience. I'm sad now that now I can't run up to a crowd of people with cookies and get the same response I did a couple days ago.... Ah well- always next PAX :)
    You guys rock!

    Although I was not officially a distributor, I did help @MASeffect out with handing out cookies. It was an absolute blast! It's so great to see so many people eager to donate to Child's Play. Definitely going to sign up to be a distributor next PAX. Thanks for the chance to get to help. It was fun!

    We had a blast baking and distributing! There are a lot of kind souls attending PAX this year. This gentleman happened to be standing behind us for a panel we barely got to in time. It was a short conversation but he loved what we do. I gave him one of the Cookie cards. digitalnoob.com/events/love-cookies-pax/


    Here's my nice after con story: Sunday after the con finished, we headed to South Station for a quick eat before our commuter train boarded. We passed this table of 7ish kids ages 3-9 with their moms/aunts. One woman said, "Oh look, an Easter Bunny." I had some candy and cookies I was taking home to my brother in my basket still. I asked permission to leave some goodies for the kids. I pulled out a handful, left them on the table and wished everyone a Happy Easter.

    I ♥ making awesome crafts! I ♥ my Cookie Brigaders!
