The “Inked” Edition

In Advice, Beauty, Fashion, question on June 13, 2008 at 5:26 pm

Hey Ally! It’s Paul. You know … one of the guys that lives with your brother. We’ve met a couple times. I have had a question to ask you for sometime now, and am finally asking you this question. I will celebrate once I have sent this and proceed to announce my self-pride to the world. So here it is:

I have been thinking of getting a tattoo on my right shoulder blade. The design is one that a buddy from high school drew for me and is a some what complex design. Now the dilemma is finding a place in the KW area that is not too sketchy and expensive to get such a custom tattoo done. So I have come to you, Ally. I wish to know if there are some reputable places in the KW area that don’t charge you an arm and a leg to get a custom tattoo done. Thank you and I can’t wait to read your response to it.

Paul V

P.S. I was reading your post about your dog and I loved it… shear genius =D

Dear Paul,

Ah yes, I remember you. You had hair, I believe, when we met. Also possibly some sort of face, and at least one foot. Anyway, I would like to preface this answer with a comment: cool tattoo! It will look scrumtrelescent. If you don’t know what that means, look it up – but not in any “real” dictionary; that kind of thing ain’t my style. For those of you who haven’t seen this tattoo – it sucks to be you, but I’m not putting it up here, because that would mean one of the six people who read this blog might get it, and ruin the originality… and I will not stand for any of that!

The “Shasta Speaks” Edition

In Fashion, Life, People on March 29, 2008 at 2:06 am

The question came from my own dearest brother, known affectionately as “the Kiby”, of (for those of you with a severe speech impediment) Waloo! The question was as follows:

Oh dearest, brilliant sister of mine!

There is a question that has perplexed my meager intellect for many a winter. I have just now come to the conclusion that you, in your near infinite wisdom, could answer it for me!

So, dear sister: where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?

Dear Kibz,

Allow me to tell you a dark, and terrifying tale… Read the rest of this entry »

A “Platyputastic” Edition

In Beauty, Fashion, Social Commentary on February 24, 2008 at 5:11 pm

Before you start: I am an English student. Therefore, even if Platyputastic wasn’t previously a word, my using it now has made it a word. I have that power. So don’t go with the complaints or the questions. I’ll even define it for you:

Platyputastic (pron. Platt-ee-put-ass-tick): Something what is fantastic and what also involves Platypi.

Platypi make great friends

And so, we can now get to the question!
Rebecca, from Awesometown, writes:

Why are platypi so shy? I know you love them so, enough to know the grammatical correctness of the species. So you must know the answer intrinsically within your soul.

Sincerely, your pal,
Rebecca of Awesometown

Dear Rebecca,

The shyness of the platypus is of course one of life’s great mysteries – and fortunately for you, one of the many which I have taken it upon myself to solve.

The answer that I found is a heartbreaking story of broken hearts and trampled spirits. You see, it all started many years ago, when the now shy and withdrawn platypi were The Proud and Noble Ancient Species that are the Duck-billed Platypi! Read the rest of this entry »


An Ask Ally Religious Experience

In Beauty, Fashion, Funny, People, Social Commentary on February 24, 2008 at 3:01 pm

Well, today I have an amusing tale which will likely offend many people but which *disclaimer* really is not meant to offend anyone’s religious beliefs. It is a tale told purely for comedic value, and having little to do with actual biblical events.

Also, I would like to point out that this story is inspired by a costumed medievalist-swordfighter gentleman whom I just glimpsed outside my kitchen window while I was watching the regular Sunday meeting (I may have mentioned it) and enjoying my healthy breakfast of cookies and coffee. It is in no way inspired by the fellow known to many as ‘The Son of God’

So, now that I’ve cleared that up, allow me to proceed!
