Consider this your friendly neighborhood reminder that the cookie swap is this Saturday, November 20th at 2:30 pm. If I haven't already sent you the address via email or twitter DM, please let me know because I lost my list of who had it and who needed it. I suck like that. Also, if you're interested in carpooling or whatever, holler in comments.
The general idea is that you will show up with 6 dozen cookies and leave with a different 6 dozen cookies. However, if you bring more or less, it's no problem. Just leave with whatever quantity you showed up with (Or more--you people will NOT be sticking me with the extra cookies this year DO YOU HEAR ME? Ahem.). Appetizers and beverages are always welcome.
Also, some of you may know that Missy is running a fundraiser (Cookies for Cancer) at Once Upon a Child right before the cookie swap. It happens to be on the way to my house for most people, so you can always buy cookies from her if you're not up for baking them (you can either pick them up or she'll deliver them to the cookie swap--how's that for service?). If you'd like to do that, please let her know (@PghCafeSolstice on twitter, or email me and I'll pass it on) how many and what kind. Anyone who purchases 2 dozen cookies gets a coupon for 20% off at Once Upon a Child, and anyone who purchases 3 dozen cookies gets a chance for a $50 gift card.
Finally, if you've got any new, unwrapped toys you'd like to have vanish from your universe, I happen to know someone who is taking a truckload of stuff to Toys for Tots on November 30th.
