Advice: Five Cents
So I was talking to the illustrious Captain Awesome the other day, and he asked for a little advice regarding a personal matter. I told him what I thought would be the best course of action, and crossed my fingers that I wasn’t full of shit. Lo and behold he wrote to me yesterday and said that he had heeded my advice, and that it had gone as well as it possibly could have. Imagine my delight! I nearly dislocated my shoulder patting myself on the back.
Then I was talking this morning to Outpost31, as we are wont to do throughout the day (thank you, instant messenger!) and I relayed the story of Capt. A and the advice giving. This time I almost threw my back out patting myself on the back, so proud was I that I had given someone advice and nothing catastrophic had happened. The Outpost, in his infinite wisdom, said that perhaps I should start an advice column here on the blog, a “Ask The Banshee” sort of thing. WELL, I told him, I sort of already did that with some of my old video blogs, and longtime readers will remember “Ask Stewie” from back in the day (I still miss you, my little man), so the gag has been played, would it work again? I hemmed and hawed for a bit and then had a snack, and came back to thinking about it, and figured what the hell, let’s give it a whirl again.
So yeah! Ask me anything! I don’t have that old annoying Formspring thing for anonymous questions anymore, because it got spammy and gross, but the idea is still open. Ask me anything and I shall answer as truthfully as I can while still protecting people’s identities, identifying characteristics, and of course protecting the innocent (or not so innocent). This could be fun, what do y’all think?
