Dear Abby Can't Have All the Answers

Hey there. Dear Abby is pretty popular columnist that provides advice to readers. If you're not familiar to her format, it's basically a "ask me a question (or thoughts) and I'll answer them (or give you some feedback)". Well, it has come to my attention that Abby doesn't always have the answers. Check out some of the actual questions that readers sent in to her where she remained speechless. lmao

Dear Abby, A couple of women moved in across the hall from me. One is a middle-aged gym teacher and the other is a social worker in her mid twenties. These two women go everywhere together and I've never seen a man go into or leave their apartment. Do you think they could be Lebanese?

Dear Abby, What can I do about all the Sex, Nudity, Fowl Language and Violence On My VCR?

Dear Abby, I have a man I can't trust. He cheats so much, I'm not even sure the baby I'm carrying is his.

Dear Abby, I am a twenty-three year old liberated woman who has been on the pill for two years. It's getting expensive and I think my boyfriend should share half the cost, but I don't know him well enough to discuss money with him.

Dear Abby, I've suspected that my husband has been fooling around, and when confronted with the evidence, he denied everything and said it would never happen again.

Dear Abby, Our son writes that he is taking Judo. Why would a boy who was raised in a good Christian home turn against his own?

Dear Abby, I joined the Navy to see the world. I've seen it. Now how do I get out?

Dear Abby, My forty year old son has been paying a psychiatrist $50.00 an hour every week for two and a half years. He must be crazy.

Dear Abby, I was married to Bill for three months and I didn't know he drank until one night he came home sober.

Dear Abby, My mother is mean and short tempered I think she is going through mental pause.

Dear Abby, You told some woman whose husband had lost all interest in sex to send him to a doctor. Well, my husband lost all interest in sex and he is a doctor. Now what do I do?

I'm pretty sure that Abby wrote back to these people with a simple, "NO COMMENT" lmao Later.

Have You Been Leveling Up?

Hey there friends. Have you been leveling up your sphere for battle? No? Then how can you expect to keep up with me in the world of virtual world of MagNext ? This kid friendly, online community has all the elements of a great environment where we can compete for bragging rights. As stated in my previous post, you compete for experience points and bragging rights. It's great that after a competition or mini-game, the website will state where you ranked amongst all players. And with more experience you gain within the game, the better the player you will become.

I wondered what the significance of Magz is in the community and I've just recently discovered what's they're for. It's basically the MagNext money! As you play the games, and earn experience, you'll also earn Magz which can be used to buy gear, action skills, or cool paint jobs for your sphere. I've been collecting them, knowing that I'll find the use for them one day and that day how now come!

I'm on the game right now. It looks like this soccer ball with a bandana wants to do battle with me. Wish me luck and I hope that next time, it will be you. Later.


My Compadre and A New Cloud

Hey there. This morning, at exactly 6 am, my compadre sent me a text message that his wife's water just broke. Our alarm was already ringing when we got the message so if he's reading, you didn't wake us. lol Anyways, we told him that we were expecting a Saturday delivery. 2 years ago, his daughter was born when my wife and I took a trip to Laughlin. We were driving there when we got a message that his wife had just given birth. This Saturday, we were scheduled to go to Laughlin, but we didn't go since my wife was sick. A Laughlin delivery was just not in the cards this time around. lol And the funny part? He's over here texting me about Final Fantasy 7 while his wife is in labor. lol He just needed to know the correct spelling of Cloud Strife's name. For whatever reason, he believed it be Claude. lol I wrote back saying that he should be paying attention to his wife instead of worrying about Final Fantasy 7. lol

Anyways, we are the god parents of his first born and as I'm writing this, I am wondering... How do you say "compadre" in English? I don't think I've ever heard anyone use it in the English translation. I've always heard the, "Those are my god-son's parents" or "god-daughter's parents" but I've never heard the direct translation. Is there even one? I'm curious to see if there is. I know that there are some phrases just cannot be directly translated to English. Or maybe they can, but looses it's meaning completely. One of my favorites is, "Me cai gordo (or gorda)". It basically means that you don't like that person, but translate it to English and you get, "That person fell on me fat". lmao It makes me wonder is comdare and comadre is "My god-child's parent". lol Either way, Spanish to English translations can be hilarious at times. lol Later!


Two mins later, literally... lol Please welcome... THE LITTLE ONE! Congrats!!!

Standard Blinds Are Old News

Hey there friends. Curtains, blinds, or open window? That's the dilemma that most people face when decorating their home. Curtains have many colors to mix and match and can be quite expensive depending on the color and fabric that is chosen. Blinds are a good choice to block out the sun but they really only keep you in the dark and obstruct your view of the outside world. Well, our friends at The Shade Store have come up with a sleek, modern solution that will not only keep harmful UV rays out of your home but will also allow you to enjoy your beautiful view.

All materials used to make these shades are 100% recyclable and GreenGuard Certified, which makes them a welcome addition to the environment. The shades also block out UV rays that can damage your furniture, they absorb heat, and they reduce the glare of the sun. This is a great alternative to the standard and old set of blinds that many of us grew up with. And the best part? IZEA has partnered up with The Shade Store to offer all friends free shipping and a 15% discount.
