Advise Column...

Having problems with your partner?

Unsure of what to wear to an up coming fete?

Are the kids out of hand and unruly?



This is the place to post your questions. All questions will be answered personally, promptly and publicly. Nothing is to bizarre or challenging, so ask away.


Best wishes,
Trans Landers

I've been running down the road
Ya know...trying to loosen my load.
I've got SEVEN women on my mind
Four want to own, 2 want to stone me
One just said she's a friend of mine.

What do I do about it?

Dear King Termite,

If you wanna hang out youíve got to take her out; cocaine.
If you wanna get down, down on the ground; cocaine.
She donít lie, she donít lie, she donít lie; cocaine.

If you got bad news, you wanna kick them blues; cocaine.
When your day is done and you wanna run; cocaine.
She donít lie, she donít lie, she donít lie; cocaine.

If your thing is gone and you wanna ride on; cocaine.
Donít forget this fact, you canít get it back; cocaine.
She donít lie, she donít lie, she donít lie; cocaine.

Snortingly,
Trans Landers

What would they say
If we'd up and ran away
From the roaring crowds
And the downtown aggravations
That we traded them away
For a quiet country day
Now would they let us run
Or would they try to find us....


Now would they?




(Bonus points if you can tell me where this song is from and who sang it.)

Dear outakontroll,

I get my insperations from all over the world, but "Jealous Guy" was a strong motivator. Insperation, persperation it's all the same to me. I'm sorry my 'tuner' is a little weak and I'm having problems recieving that last thought.

Humourously yours,

Dear Siu Blue Wind,

I suppose I could collect my books and get on back to school
Or steal my daddyís cue and make a living out of playing pool
Or find myself a rock and roll band that needs a helpiní hand
Oh maggie I wish Iíd never seen your face
You made a first-class fool out of me
But Iím as blind as a fool can be
You stole my heart but I love you anyway


Pointlessly,
Trans Landers

Dear Trans Landers,

I have a problem with spelling and grammar. Mistakes annoy me. I can't stand to see "seperate" in print. I hate it when people add apostrophes when making a word plural (i.e. plural's). Then there's that whole advise vs. advice conundrum. Can you give me some advice? What do you advise that I do?

I love your advi*e column, by the way.

Grammatically yours,
MsV

Dear MsV,

Might I suggest to you any number of excellant OTC laxatives? It would be a good thing to losen up and stop being so anel retentave about spelling and grammer. Should you continue this you'll be shure to contract a severe case of hemerhoids. Take it from one who has just gone through a bout of the old 'roids. You don't want them.

Moving along,
Trans Landers

PS ~ Thanks for the complemint. Pleas tell you're friends. I'm looking for national sindication

Dear Trans Landers,

I've been leading a dual life - two-wheel demon by day, four-wheel horsepower junkie by night - but I've not had the courage to admit it openly before now. I'm afraid my need for speed and love of all things fast will bring the wrath and ridicule of those devoted to bicycle power only. How can I convince the fanatics that I can be a "true" cyclist and *GASP* a cager too??? I'm tired of feeling guilty for my secret pleasure. Any advice would be appreciated!

A faithful reader.

Dear Faithful Reader,

Closets are for clothes, welcome to the light. It was a major step, your coming out. Don't you feel cleansed?

Might I suggest something as simple as an avitar change to better express your inate need for speed?



After all, bicycles are for tree huggers & sissies!!

Fuelishly,

Well I took your suggestion to heart and made an avitar out of my hubby's car (mine's not finished yet. ) As for bicycles are for tree huggers & sissies...I'm still confused about that. Does that mean I'm a sissy trapped in a gearhead body or a horsepower junkie trapped in a tree hugger's body?
