    My friend Lady Bass is DJing at their hundred year anniversary this weekend, and it got me thinking... They really need a special DJ merit badge to give her, so I designed one:


    I was a scout way back, and the amazing skills I learned are still with me today! I totally can find North with a needle and a cork, and my canoeing skills totally impressed my gf of a couple of years ago at Borreal. Also, I love campfires and grilling meat.

    How many of you were girl guides?

    Thanks Alex :)

    i can definitely say that after DJing 8 hours to 14,000 girl guides, brownies and sparks while they painted and did art, and danced and sang around me, I successfully earned my DJ badge. :)

    I was a brownie for like 2 weeks.
    it was fucking lame and ghey and I hated it and I would get in trouble from the mean fat old owl leader (or whatever they are called) that looked like a man. I thought it was the stupidest thing ever, so i quit that pretty quickly and stuck to my ballet.

    I was in Brownies for 2 days? Hated it.

    My daughter is in Sparks, she seems to like it. We'll see if she does Brownies next year.

    Yup! I was a brownie - but was soooo annoyed with the fact that I was in the 'little people' group. Being insanely tall - it wasnt a good fit. I had a hate on for all the gals who were part of the fairy bunch.

    I also earned my hostess badge by having my skirt tucked in my panty hose. Sigh. :eek:

    Does everyone remember the little belts that you wore with the pouch that carried you to your 'dues' in? Mine was missing the mini pencil holder. I also didnt have a sash - so my Mom had to sew all of badges along my arms.

    Hated guided though. It felt like I was in the army.

    i raided many girl guide campgrounds as a boyscout. we should have gotten a badge for it.

    that would be one interesting dj gig though.

    did you drop billy idol's 'mony, mony', or rock master scott & the dynamic three's 'the roof is on fire'? :D

    I was a cub scout / boy scout for many many years.

    My Dad was a leader. He said he would only agree to take on being a leader if he could bring his son AND daughter. I went to every single meeting, camping trip, apple selling..you name it, I was there.

    I was a girl guide for exactly 3 meetings. I HATED every second of it. I quit. I hated wearing the stupid blouse and skirt. The whole thing seemd way too nerdy to me. Bottom line, more fun hangin with the boys.
