announcing Comment of the Week and Ask The Lola

For ages I've meant to introduce a "Comment of the Week" feature, since often there are some comments here which are pretty damn amusing (sadly the comments can outshine the content, but I'm not afraid to give credit where it is due). The first Comment of the Week goes to AnonymousGoatsePants, who started out here as a troll sniping at the other commenters and the poor old Drunken Housewife herself. Now he's the alpha troll!

And, upon much pressure, I need to bring back "Ask The Lola." Lola has deigned (insisted) on entertaining your questions once again. Please leave your questions here, and I'll pass them on to her. Why she wants to do this given that she doesn't read the blog, I don't know. Recently I asked her, in a moment of parental caring, whether I'd written anything which bothered her here, and she looked at me blankly. "I don't read it." Then, kindly, Lola reached over and patted my arm consolingly, murmuring, "I almost never check my own blog, either." She's in a helpful mood, though, so come on with your toughest questions!

fading quietly into the background, yer Drunken Housewife

dearest lola -

1. are you planning on learning to cook like your dear mother once you get the new stove?

2. are you looking forward to one day going to summer camp?

3. it sounds like you enjoy acting from your performances at school. would you want to be an actor when you're older? what actors do you like?

thanks! - hughman

Oooh! What do I win? What do I win?!? BTW, you outed me a while ago. That's why I'm the NonymousGoatsePants and not Anon. I think I chose Anonymous because some other commenter was sniping at ME -- saying I was hiding behind an Anonymous comment. But that could have been an ether dream.

Q for Lola: What's the worst thing you've done to your sister's stuff since she's been gone?

No... You better not ask that. It'll just cause trouble. Oh, I know:

Q: Don't you want fishnet stockings?

What? Not that one, either? Picky, picky, picky... Strident femenistas!

Q: Isn't summer great? Is there any smell better than week-old sweat and patchouli?

Ok, wait... I'll ask a real one:

Real Q for Lola: If Mom-dude was a shape (Circle, triangle, square, duo-decahedron, etc.), which shape would she be and why? Same question for Dad.

If you had to eat the same thing every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?

What is your favorite book?

Thanks, your outlook on life regularly brightens my day.

Ohhhh, perfect timing. I have a very pressing question for Lola! We have friends who live in big cities and are just starting families. They worry about raising children in an urban environment. So, my question for Lola is:

What do you like best about living in San Francisco?"

Note: It's actually possible in this case to have more than one "best" :-)
