    5 1/2 hours of baking, crushing, dipping, and placing later...72 katamari cakeballs are complete, ftw!

    will drop them at the MWP or the flag some time on friday.

    hope they turn out to be yummy. they look cool, but i am exercising restraint and therefore didn't test eat one!

    So, I told Moe that I would bake him some cookies for being awesome and moderating PAForums for us. I then told my roommates that I would bake us some cookies too.... I then baked over 3 dozen chocolate chip cookies with sea salt. Is there any way I could donate some to the cookie brigade? <3

    ATTENTION ALL BAKERS: I am entirely out of cookies. All 250 cake balls are gone. Please contact me at the phone number in your E-Mail if you're a baker looking for someone to distribute so we can meet up! PM me here as well if you can't find/don't have the E-Mail: my current supply has run dry and I'm in need of restocking!

    I've still got a bunch of cookies, plus chewy snickerdoodles if you still want them ZeroHourZero!

    Just as a clarification, the meeting point on the first floor is in the round area near the windows, not the rectangle area.

    I sent VThornheart an email, but then I just noticed browncoatbeth's schedule up above. So I guess I'll just plan on being there then.

    Just to help hand out cookies. I didn't feel like baking last night. :D

    p.s. I'd be willing to run to Trader Joe's and buy some if we run out.

    I asked the cookie brigade to surprise me when they came around yesterday, and received a sugar cookie as well as a potato chip cookie for my troubles. I use the "surprise me" line probably more often than is sensible, but this is the first time where I have actually been a) genuinely surprised, because "potato chip cookies" consists of three words that I previously thought should NEVER go together, and b) genuinely pleased with the results of my obnoxious request.

    In short? I love the cookie brigade.

    <3 guys! Just to note, from the money that has been turneds over to me I did a count just now: $1119.66 so far! I think it'll be at least double if not more when we combine the others not yet in... not bad for a firsat year at a new PAX! Thank you everyone who gave so generously to Child's Play! Hypatia will have the final tally tomorrow!

    Not to abuse any potential...uhh...beneifts(?), but I have been told by Parabs that, at past Primes, he's been let in to panels and other events early, due to the wheelchair. I don't want to seem like I'm taking advantage of the situation, but if they're going to let me in to the keynote early(along with my wife, hopefully), for example, then we can distribute cookies to our hearts' content, providing relief to the growling stomachs of the assembled geeks and raising all kinds of cash for Child's Play. :)

    Thoughts?
    Hey. I met you on Friday. I didn't have any money nor did you have any cookies but I did find someone who did have cookies to donate to you. Also, who was the person with the bulbasaur hat that I believe worked one of the boothes.

    Can I just say that from what I saw all of you did a fantastic job?
    VT- I ran into you a few times and the cake balls were FANTASTIC! I brought a bag of 2 home and I'm going to see if I can work off the recipe from the site. BTW, great rig! http://hphotos-snc3.fbcdn.net/hs461.snc3/25334_381478089379_503584379_3517091_6457700_n.jpg
    Jeff/Facelesscog- Did I run into you earlier and ask about VT? Thinking back now, I think I did.
    Aeryn- A pleasure, once again!

    Thanks! I'll be sure to tell the lady at work who made them that everyone loved them! They definitely evaporated quickly! =)

    I've got to give a big thanks to everyone who helped out baking and distributing, and everyone who helped out Child's Play in a delicious way! =)

    I wish the forums had an Applause button, because I'd be hammering away at it particularly for Facelesscog and Rebecca right now, who were not just Cookie Brigadiers but Cookie Warriors! Your chocolates were awesome, and your dedication to the cause even moreso!

    We should be thanking you and Hypatia! You two did all the organization. It was wonderful meeting you all and can't wait till next PAX East, of course if they get Captain Tight Pants for PAX Prime we'll figure out some way to get there.

    Of course the whole 9 and a half hour drive home we talked about what we are going to do for the next time.

    Just so you guys know?

    Those chocolate cake ball things should really be classified as illegal substances. So insanely tasty, I was glad I only got two I would have put on 50 lbs just eating those dang things all weekend.

    Serious props to whoever made those and the lemon cookies.

    I got one of these too, and I'd actually really like the recipe. My wife refused to try a bite, but it was an awesome combination of salty and sweet. It seemed like sugar cookie dough with potato chips mixed in, but if whoever made those could shed some light on that, that would be swell.
