Even On Gallifrey, They Need Girl Scout Cookies

Last weekend, Doctor Who fans descended up on the LAX Marriott Hotel for the 27th gathering of Gallifrey One. We may have differences of opinion on who “Our” Doctor is, but all can agree on two things: we love when our money goes to something doing good, and that somehow, Girl Scout Cookies allow us to do that AND enjoy cookies.

This year, a local troop was allowed to set up a table in the Dealers’ Room, a perfect situation for those who wanted a light snack they could carry around the whole day without having to stand in line at Starbucks in the lobby. And the troop (actually Brownies — the youngest level of Girl Scout) themed themselves to the event well, from little signs exhorting passers by, to even constructing a Dalek out of cookie boxes. The girls took turns wearing the costume to tell Gallifreyans to “Exterminate… the… cookies…”

We all know the 11th Doctor likes Jammy Dodgers, but I am comforted believing that the 12th Doctor loves Samoas. Should this talk of cookies plant a seed of hunger for Samoas or Pecan Sandies, you can order them here.
