Saturday 9: Cookie!

Saturday 9: C Is for Cookie

Don't blame Sam. Harriet requested Cookie Monster.

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) This week's featured artist, Cookie Monster says his favorite TV show is Monsterpiece Theater. What show do you try never to miss?

A. Lately I have been watching Supergirl, so I made sure to always watch that until the season ended. I also confess that in the last 15 years I have probably missed maybe 5 episodes of Survivor. Every year I ask myself why I keep watching that show, and every year I watch it. I am also a fan of Game of Thrones.

2) Though he goes by Cookie Monster professionally, he is still called Sid by his family. When will you next get together with your relatives?

A. I don't know. Christmas, I guess.

3) Now for the cookie questions! Where do you weigh in on this age-old controversy: Is a brownie a cookie or a cake?

A. A brownie is its own thing. It is neither cake nor cookie.

4) Fig Newtons contain no cholesterol. Do you read nutrition labels before eating snacks? Or does knowing the truth about your favorite sweets ruin your enjoyment?

A. I read the nutrition labels and eat it anyway.

5) Biscotti are designed for dipping into drinks. Do you like to dunk your cookies?

A. Cookies should only be dunked in milk, and I cannot drink milk, so I do not dunk cookies.

6) Do you prefer cookies made with milk chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips or semi-sweet chocolate chips? Or are you a rebel who prefers butterscotch chips?

A. I like them either with milk chocolate or semi-sweet but it must be the Nestle Tollhouse Cookie recipe if homemade.

7) Bill Murray once said, "Raisin cookies that look like chocolate chip cookies are the main reason I have trust issues." Do you like raisin cookies?

A. I don't mind them.

8) Nabisco still sells animal-shaped cookies in a red box that looks like a train car labeled, "Barnum's Animals." However Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus gave their last-ever performance on May 21, 2017. Have you ever been to the circus?

A. When I was very young. I vaguely remember it.

9) Have you ever received a memorable fortune in a fortune cookie?

A. Nothing I can recall, no. And no winning lottery numbers, either!


I encourage you to visit other participants in Saturday 9 posts and leave a comment. Because there are no rules, it is your choice. Saturday 9 players hate rules. We love memes, however.



  1. I always intend to save the fortune cookie and play those numbers, yet I always lose them or forget. Consequently I'm not a millionaire.

  2. I'm with you, a purist, when it comes to chocolate chip cookies. They just don't even count if they aren't the original Toll House recipe!

  3. I watched "Survivor" for many years, but finally ODd I've been happier since.
    And YES on Tollhouse!

  4. I love your honesty about reading the labels and eating things anyway. I suppose we are all guilty of this.

  5. I can't drink milk either, so I've found other beverages for dunking. Tea is pretty good.

    Happy Saturday! Have a lovely week.

  6. I say the same thing you say about Survivor about Big Brother--why do I continue to watch? Yet I can't turn away!
