Dear Alice –
I just don’t know which Black Friday sale to go to. There are so many of them. There’s that $100.00 computer at Staples and the $120.00 LED TV at Wal-Mart. I’ve been planning this for weeks, but no I’m so confused and afraid I will make the wrong choice.
Do you have any advice for me on where I should start? I want my family to have the best!

Dear Alice –
I recently moved to Nevada County from Missouri. Well, I didn’t move here. I came for, let’s say, a “seasonal job” and decided to stay.
It’s been going great and I love the people here, but I’m having trouble meeting new people. I did meet a couple of guy-friends, and we’re hanging out. Which is cool, you know? Anyhow, they wanted me to experiment with LSD at this party coming up this weekend. I’ve never tried it and I’m a bit scared. I usually like tequila and beer. But not at the same time! LOL.
Since you are so good at advice, I thought I ask you.

What’s the name of that song that starts out with a “Dum, de-dum, dum, dum, DUM, dee-dum” and then gets real high and then real fast. And then at the end of the song is gets slow and finishes with “Dum, de-dum, dum, dum, DUM, dee-dum.”
My girlfriend and I are having the hugest argument about this right now and I was hoping you could help us figure out the name of the song.

I’m 23 years old. I decided not to go to college like my parents wanted me to. I have no idea what I want to do, and all I know is I don’t want what they want for me. Honestly, I don’t think they know what they want for me.
Anyhow, someone just sent me this old Bruce Springsteen song. They sent it anonymously over my Tumblr page. It’s called Rosalita Come Out Tonight. I listened to it, and it was great. I think this person has a crush on me. What should I do?

My boyfriend keeps wanting to have sex all the time. And he refuses to do anything about birth control. So, you know. It’s all up to me. He’s sorta a nice guy other than that, but the worry of an unwanted pregnancy has got me down.
Do you have any suggestions on what I should do or say to him.
Thanks so much!

All this local election nonsense has got me all worked up. At first I was angry with how people are manipulating them like some kind of bullshit TV cop program, but now I’m just tired. I am also feeling very apathetic. I mean, what’s the point of voting if some jerks simply pull weird crap and make my vote less meaningful?
Do you have any advice on how to get motivated to vote? Any words of wisdom for those of us who are feeling sad and powerless?

I’m so busy with my full time job, that I don’t have time to cook meals for my kids. As if that would even matter because all they’ll eat is Apple Jacks cereal, chicken nuggets and that boxed macaroni and cheese.
Any suggestions on how I can get my family to eat healthier?

Every time the wife and I take my kids out to eat at a restaurant, they behave poorly. Just the other day, we were at Maria’s and my 6 year old got up and ran around and bumped into a waitress carrying a hot plate with cheese enchiladas. What a mess! Those darn kids!
Any advice on how to keep my kids seated? I think that waitress got a burn on her leg! Whoopsie!

My Boyfriend just left me and took all my money out of my bank account. He took all of my money. I was such an idiot to open a joint account with him. He’s changed his phone number, but I think he’s hanging out with one of his friends off of Bennett Street.
