314--Nevada: Burning Man 2005, Camp Cookie Monster

cherie writes: C is for Cherie, C is for Crazy and C is for Cookies. This year our gang of friends darned our best blue fuzz and headed to the Black Rock Desert to give out free cookies. It was a monstrous bash, and we learned that almost everyone (except the occasional grouchy vegan) likes cookies! Cookie Monster helped us deliver the cookies and we graciously accepted smiles in return.

But the 2005 Cookie Monster isnít the same cuddly blue fuzzy guy I grew up with. Today Sesame Street is focusing on ĎHealthy Happy Monsters,í so Cookie Monster now says things like: ďA Cookie is a Sometimes Food.Ē

Hereís the thing, Iím all about teaching children about healthy eating habits and trying to lower the rate of childhood obesity. But the Cookie Monster is a monster! Kids canít flap their wings like Big Bird, they canít live in a trash can like Oscar the Grouch, and they canít survive on cookies like the Cookie Monster! That doesnít mean the Cookie Monster has to start eating fruit!

So Iím glad I brought the Cookie Monster to the Black Rock Desert. Cookie Monster needed a week away so he could sit back, eat cookies, and sing the old songs of his youth: ďC is for Cookie, and thatís good enough for me!Ē

This year we had 14 fuzzy blue friends in Camp Cookie Monster.  We gave away 18 tons of cookies (or was it 18 cases?)
