I hope you're all staying
warm! It's blizzard-like conditions here! Chai
Anyhow, big thanks to Nicole
for supplying the questions you see here. Myself and others are
busy at work with the annual Christmas story which will be a bit
different (read: shorter) this year. I'm still recovering from
"Safe"... So it was nice to have help
on this on!
Now it's time to check in with
Dyeland's resident advice columnist for help with your holiday
Dru: Christmas 2010 Edition
Dear Annie Dru,
I came up with this brilliant
idea to create a custom-made Christmas
wrapping paper, featuring the AOD Band. But when I asked them to
pose for pictures, they refused. I even offered to pay them and
bake them cookies! But they declined everything and I don't know
why. I really want this wrapping paper, but I just
what to do now! Any suggestions?
Don't Fear the Wrapper
Did you explain to Adam,
Andrew, and Henry what you want to do with
this paper? Do you even know? Maybe if you told them you
intend only to use it to wrap presents for your fellow Dyelanders,
they'll be okay with it. Perhaps they're just afraid to have
their images go public. We don't NOT need a bunch of
under garment-flinging groupies running around here (flannel shirt
stealing groupies are okay, though). Lemme tell you... It
happens. Your esteemed advice columnist was at Woodstock, after
Then again, maybe they'd still
decline. And if they do: you need
to respect that. Ask yourself this: Do you really want to tear up
their gorgeous faces just to get to your boxed set of House? I
Dear Annie Dru,
I want to get Andrew a really
special gift this year, but no matter how
much I brainstorm, I just can't come up with anything. He's got
so many loving friends, and pretty much anything he could want or
need. What do you get for the angel who has everything?
You can't go wrong with
homemade. Especially not with a sensitive
soul like Andrew. Maybe make him a photo album of your times
together. Write him a poem. Print up coupons offering free
hugs, free meals, free football game viewing, or other stuff you know
likes. Andrew may have everything he needs but you can never have
too many reminders that you're loved.
And if you're not the creative
type: flannel shirts. True, he has
plenty but the way those things disappear out of his closet and wind up
in various women's homes around Dyeland... he'll need more.
Dear Annie Dru,
This year I've been planning a
Christmas party for some kids at a
Children's Home. I was even going to have a Santa Claus there,
but at the last minute, the guy decided to go skiing in Utah
instead! How rude! Anyhow, I'm now desperate. Do you
think maybe Adam or Andrew would be willing to replace him and be Santa
for the night? I just don't know who else to ask?
I think either Andrew or Adam
would love to help you out. And I'm
sure they'd both be wonderful at it. Although Adam definitely has
more experience so you may want to check with him first. Maybe
you can get a two for one deal! Adam can be Santa and Andrew can
be... hmm... Well, Andrew can be Sprinkles, Santa's loyal
right hand elf! C'mon, how adorable would he look with pointed
ears? Just don't blame me if all that AODs with children
adorableness sends you swooning!
And now it's time for more
ridiculous fun with...
Ask a Christmasy
Question, Get a Christmasy Stupid Answer
Question: Someone told me that
there was a TBAA episode where Andrew got a hold of some bad eggnog and
was shrunk to the size of a grasshopper. He then spent Christmas
Eve trying to avoid being stepped on by reindeer. I've searched
searched by can't find this episode anywhere! Can you please help
Sure. You can find that
episode, "Honey, I Shrunk an AOD," on the special TBAA DVD four
episode set entitled "The Bad Reactions to Pharmaceuticals
Question: Should I even bother
to make any snow angels this year?
I mean, c'mon, we all know it won't look nearly as good as the real
Yes, you should. Because who else
is going to fight with the ice demons? The snowmen? Yeah
right. We all know they're complete wimps.
Question: I want to make an
Andrew snowman this year and make him come
to life like Frosty. How do I go about this?
Andrew is suing you for
copyright infringement. There can be only one Andrew! If
there's more than one I think they have to kill each other off.
Oh wait... that's Highlander...
Question: Hey, I'm looking for
a Christmasy picture or poster of Andrew
in like a Santa costume or something. I'm gonna tape it to the
ceiling above my bed, then sit and wait for the Scotch tape to give
out. Do you know where I can find a poster like this?
Wow... just wow. I
don't know whether to applaud you or report you to someone...
Just wow... Stupid question answerer is now speechless.
