A heartfelt thanks to everyone who submitted menu ideas and recipes for my upcoming dinner plans.
Every suggestion was so good and so...so unique. It’s a toss up between the Osso Bucco and the Pissghetti. Veal or pasta in urine sauce; pasta with urine sauce or veal. Gee, I’m torn, but I’ll make a decision soon. In fact, expect an announcement in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, I’ve been challenged by someone much younger than me and paid a salary that makes me want to puke, who suggested that I should try my hand at writing an advice column. My first response was, “How much?” and then I was quickly reminded that I’ve never tackled anything like this before, therefore I am an “unproven commodity” and often “unproven commodities” work for free.
And until “proven”, this would be one of those free occasions.
It was then “suggested” that I get my feet wet with this new writing venture right here on my blog. I hear tell that it’s cheap, easy, quite accessible AND would remove the magazine from any and all libel.
Thanks corporate America!!!
Cheap as bastards.
So, if both of my readers are game, can I use you as my first patsies, er uh, pawns...I mean, advice seekers?
You can leave your questions here in the comments section or you can e-mail me at Laurie Industries.

I need your name or sure, you can use a fake one and I’d like you to include the name of the city in which you currently live.
No question is off limits, but admittedly, my knowledge of quantum physics, polypeptides and Faust has been waning lately. However, I vow that I will attempt to answer and provide obnoxious and irrelevant advice to any query submitted. I’ll be serious if warranted–I have access to a wide array of experts in their fields, but know this: I retain the right to edit a question to make it more palatable for a wide range of readers.
Both of you.
So, you gotta question? Need some advice? I’ll make every attempt to ferret out an answer.
Depending on how this fares; if there’s enough interest, I’ll publish every Thursday…this Friday if there’s any response. But subsequent posts will be on Thursdays. One more thing, your willingness to submit a question to this column represents your willingness to participate in this advice column and therefore, I can’t be held responsible for anything I tell you and all that other crap.
The intent of this so called “advice column” is tongue and cheek. Seriously tongue and cheek
I also need a catchy name. “Dear Laurie” is so passe and “Yo Bitch” is just a smidge too urban for this middle aged bag o’boobs. Got any recommendations?
Well, there you go. I have no idea where this will go, if anywhere at all, but obviously, this will take some time. Hell, even Pam Anderson wasn’t built in a day!!
Thanks in advance.
