ask amie

A friend of mine recently wrote an 'ask so-and-so' post on her blog in which readers could ask her anything regarding anything and she would respond the next day with her answers. Some of the questions were about her and her blog, others were just random why-is-the-sky-blue questions. I told her that it was exceptionally cool and she encouraged me to try it.

*snort*

Like anyone would want to ask me anything. That insinuates that I might know anything. Because, by opening up an 'Ask Amie' blog post, I totally put myself in the position that looks like A) I'm knowledgeable (is that how you spell that? See, I can't even help myself) enough to answer any of your questions and B) that you'd give a darn what my answer is anyway.

*snort again*

But, I can make up a tall tale like the best of 'em, so send 'em my way.

My answers, explanations, and advice can not be taken seriously and should not be used as a medical diagnosis. If this is an emergency please hang up now and dial 911. Proceed to GO and collect $200.

Not from me.

You will not be winning any money from this post.

But a little Ask Amie might be just the cure for the end-of-the-week blog slump I find myself in. If I get enough responses, I'll answer the questions on Monday's post. If this ends up being an epic FAIL (like my potato soup in the crockpot last week--is there some rule about milk and cheese not working in the crockpot? cuz that was seriously the chewiest cheese I've ever tasted from of a soup recipe) then we'll just move right along and forget this horrid little suggestion ever happened.

So, at the risk of sounding egotistical, full of myself, and all other ways obnoxious, let's do this. It's you that can make this great. Ask me a question. Let's see what happens.

Amie, can you tell me why dairy products with a higher fat content have a longer shelf life? I have kept cream in my frige for a month and it was still good. Skim milk? Not so much. What gives?

Unladen swallow! Ha!! Carrying a coconut. Oh, wait I'm supposed to ask you a question not comment on the comments. Let's see...

Why does my almost 7 year old act more like a 2 year old and my 2 year old doesn't act like a two year old?

This has been eating at me for the past few days -- maybe you are the one to solve the mystery.

Why are there AA and AAA batteries, but no A or B batteries? Wouldn't it be easier if they were just labeled A, B, C, D,?! I don't get it. Please explain this O wise Amie :)

Dear Amie,

Why do I have so much trouble getting to sleep, even though I'm exhausted???

Why is it still snowing in Utah and in the 80's in AZ? I don't get it. We are only a 10 hour drive from there.

By the way, you only add milk or cheese to your crockpot at the end of the cooktime in a crockpot. I have made clam chowder in a crockpot and it turned out great. I'll have to look at the recipe, but I must have added the cream at the end.

What stains can you NOT get out with stain remover?

Lorie said...

I think there actually are rules about dairy in the crock pot. I know in a lot of recipes they tell you to put the dairy in last. (Dairy burns pretty easy!!)

But I have a to die for potato recipe!

Now on to asking YOU a question...

Where are all the places (cities) you have lived.

LIZZEE said...

Why is unsweetened iced tea still bad for you on a diet when it contains no calories even decaf?

basically it's flavored water which is suppose to be excellent for you.?

wittygal said...

Who is Sherman? Is he/she a telemarketer? Maybe someone got your number from blog stalking and made those faky calls.
How much information do you have to know about someone to get their phone number?

soccerboyzmom said...

How do you get an unlisted telephone number?

Second question and story -- supposedly someone made me a My Space account and when I tried to cancel it I couldn't since I didn't make it. So I called the number and asked if they could cancel it and they said NO, since it was a privacy issue. So if it is dealing with me, why is it a privacy issue?
