ask Iris

Aeons ago I solicited questions from the readers for Lola, who happily answered your questions and gave you life advice. Older sister Iris uber Alles never forgot or forgave this, and it's high time we did Ask The Iris. Please post your questions here, and Iris will be happy to dish out the dirt or direct you in your dilemmas.

Q1: You know, this whole "dominion over everything" role probably exacts a great toll upon you. Have you considered shifting the scope of your power base to something less overwhelming, or at least rebranding away from the "├╝ber Alles" image to something a bit kinder and gentler?

Q2: How was the deity status of Frowsty established? Is there a mythos behind the mightiness?

(probably has read one too many Seth Godin essays for his own good)

Thank you in advance

I am currently locked in an epic battle with the villain Maleficent, in the game Kingdom Hearts, and I've already been KO'd once. What battle tactic should I employ to ensure victory for myself and my comrades, Goofy and Donald??

Hey Iris!

How long do you think it would take for you to be good enough at WoW to beat Mom-dude? Think you could do it in a month? Two months? Or, are you not good enough... Let us know!

Dear Iris,

If somebody gave you a million dollars, what would you spend it on?

What are your feelings on bugs?

What is your policy on the treatment of peons?

Iris, should I keep growing my hair out or cut it?

Iris, how should I keep my kids from bickering so much? And should I intervene or let them work it out?

I want to make my little sister as miserable as possible. I am 58 and she is 51. What do you think I should do?

Hey Iris,

I'm getting married in December and I'm trying to figure out what I will give my guests as favors. I think I'll give the grown-ups wine or some other kind of alcohol, but there will be a lot of kids there too. All ages from 2 up to 19.

I need to figure out what to give the kids (since I can't give them alcohol). I was thinking about a mug full of chocolates or something, but I thought maybe you would have a better idea. Is there some kind of candy you think all those ages would like? Or something else entirely? I need specifics, I have no idea what to do!

I actually asked Lola a question last time around and took her advice!

I was trying to decide whether to get a large dog or a purse dog.

Lola advised large and I then acquired, from a German Shepherd rescue organization....a Belgian Tervuren.

Since she came to live with me, she has foiled two prowlers at my home. Thanks Lola!
