Cookies for LJ has hereby been bought cookies (look at the userinfo page).

Aaaaaannnnnnnd . . . Stacy, chasethestars, would very much like real cookies for making LJ cookies.

I can't bake very well.

But can someone here make this happen?

Given the stress that LJ staff are under thanks to Fangate 2007 and the Ddos attacks, it's time for something good for them.

Okay. Me being in Australia I can't say homebaked cookies would be good.

However, I'd love to send some famous Australian TIM TAMS to the LJ crew. They are totally the most delicious thing you have ever tasted. And it's a bonus for coffee drinkers as you can bite opposite ends and suck the coffee through it and have it mix with the chocolate inside!

Would you lovely LJ peoples like to try Aussie Tim Tams?? XD

Cookie Schedule!

Hey y'all! Sorry about the delay. I think that we should probably back off to once a month again until we have more people. Sound ok?

Here's the schedule:

Febuary: elvinchild
March: purpleheather
April: unconventional
May: limelight_lude
June: vaxoventric

Sound ok to everyone? If anyone wants to send a second batch a month, leave a comment on this post, and then send a batch to the Seattle office. There's only a few people there, but I'm sure they'd appreciate it. and then send another batch to the SF office.

Alrighty? :) Also: If people could please post the months they'd be able to post cookies, I'd be really appreciative. Thanks!

Schedule. Sign-ups for November, December, January wide open

Sorry I've been out of touch. I had a server crash in July and that took the wind out of my sails for the rest of the summer...

Who wants to ship cookies this month? Next month? Doing any holiday baking and want to share the results?

Who shipped cookies, if anyone, in August, September, or October? What kind of cookies did you send? (LJ monkeys, what kind did you receive?)

I was supposed to ship to the Seattle office in October. I'll be doing that this month since I missed my slot.

Is there anyone who can take on the job of reminding people? All you have to do is find the message where they volunteered and send them a follow-up reminder message...

Early November __________
Mid November __________
Late November texmorgan "I can do either late November or early December. Just remind me and I need the address as well."
November for Seattle Office hazelchaz
Early December 2005 __________
Mid December 2005 __________
Late December 2005 __________
December 2005 for Seattle Office ____________________
Early January 2006 __________
Mid January 2006 __________
Late January 2006 elvinchild "I'll take late January, just remind me."
January 2006 for Seattle Office ____________________
Early February 2006 ____________________
Mid February 2006 ____________________
Late February 2006 ____________________
February 2006 for Seattle Office ____________________

"Early" should ship by the 10th, "Mid" should ship between the 11th and 20th, and "Late" should ship on or after the 21st of the month. Or thereabouts. There are 16 people at the office working on LJ, so I suggest shipping two dozen cookies or more. (Regardless of how many you send, they'll get eaten.)

Mid October

I'd like to volunteer for mid October, if that's okay. Does/can that include remote employees? (Support supervisors deserve cookies!)

I'm thinking double chocolate chip cookies and vegan chocolate cupcakes (that don't taste vegan). Unless someone doesn't like chocolate, of course.

The late August shipment is on it's way...with a little something extra for Frank. Hope you enjoy.

As I didn't know if you had none egg eaters, I shipped some no-bake cookies in with the others. There are about 6 dozen in all.

I also added some stress relief materials (not that I think it's a stressful work environment) in the box. I'll let the recipients expound on that once they receive the package.

Take care, all!

The whole LJ team in one place

Since I'm part of the LJ staff, I had some inside knowledge when I volunteered for my early-August cookies-for-LJ duty: the whole team was going to be together in one place for the first time in LJ history. All of the out-of-towners converged on Six Apart HQ this week for a long-planned team powwow.

I cheated a little bit on the definition of cookies. For the occasion, my wife, reeniecooks, very kindly made us a big batch of her outstanding caramel corn. It went quickly with this crowd :P
