{Introducing the Best New Feature Since I Learned How to Post Photos}

This blog is boring. Especially now that I’m too paranoid to have music playing.

In an effort to spice it up, I am opening my brilliant mind for anyone in the entire e-world to pick. Is there something you always wanted to know, but were too afraid to ask? Ask! I will answer any question (of course we’re keeping things clean here at Archives of Our Lives, but that’s just a given). Do you wonder about my birth control plan? Ask! Do you need help figuring out what makes your teenage daughter’s world go ’round? Ask! Do you have a large green growth schlumping around on your underarm? See a doctor! And then ask!

And there are so many ways to ask me, too–in the comment section of any post, or on Twitter. If you have my phone number you can text me a question. You can write your queries in #2 pencil on a sheet of lined college-rule (recycled, naturally) looseleaf, fold them up tightly and shove them in a teeny tiny emptied gel caplet, send the caplet to me via United States Postal Service, and I will swallow the pill, wait for it to digest, poo it out, excavate your looseleaf question from the waste, unfold it, read it, and answer it right here on my blog. Or you can simply email me.

Every week I will answer a question. Ask me anything. Any time.

Here, I’ll start:
Camille, what did you do yesterday? Sincerely, Camille.

That’s a lovely question, Camille. Thanks for asking. Yesterday I did nine loads of laundry which had piled up as a result of who the heck knows.

This was made 100% more enjoyable by my twins.

Doing laundry is probably my favourite chore of the entire house. I would do nine loads of laundry every day if I never had to make the bed or clean Poor Kyle’s whisker shavings out of the bathroom sink.

I'm Camille. I have a butt-chin. I live in Canada. I was born in Arizona. I like Diet Dr. Pepper. Hello. You can find me on Twitter @archiveslives, Facebook at facebook.com/archivesofourlives, instagram at ArchivesLives, and elsewhere.

    Do people in your everyday life know you have a blog? Just curious. I actually have very mixed feelings about my everyday acquaintances finding out, because then I have be careful what I write. I should be careful anyway.

    so what ARE your birth control plans?

    I have a question but I think I’ll send it the U.S. mail route, which should be a humorous process to encounter! ( at least for us devoted readers)

    OH!!! I have a really good feeling about this!

    P.S. I have SO MUCH laundry to do right now… and no beautiful red machines to motivate me…

    I painted my cabinets white. They are actually looking pretty fabulous. I once asked about your painting experience, but you never answered :( And my question is, what is your e-mail and phone number?!! You have missed out on fun little random packages and “I’m thinking of you” text messages because of your black hole. e-mail or facebook me if you want it private. geevz65@gmail.com

  8. Geneva says:

    oh and poking your eyebrows out makes total sense. I thought it was referring to gouging them out with a blunt object. Or even fingernails. That does describe painting cabinets.

    What do you do all day if you don’t work, go to school or care for children? Do you like this state of existence or are you going to do something different in the future? Does poor Kyle support what you do/don’t do?

    How the hell and why do you have so many anonymous commenters? I read hundreds and hundreds of blogs and I’ve never seen such a high ratio.

    What’s the deal? Have they told you? Is it family that hates registering for things or something?

    Finally (Because this would be how I feel)

    Does this not drive you nutso?

    Have you considered turning the anonymous option off?


    That is all.

    Holy Crap! Is that really your washer and dryer? You can’t even IMAGINE my jealousy.

    I should take a picture of my beasts so you can pity me when you wash clothes.

    I aspire to those two red beauties one day.

    Why do you insist upon torturing yourself by living up in Canada?

    This question is deep, so consider it seriously:

    What do you want your life to be like in ten years, or to have accomplished?

    I can’t think of a question that I haven’t already asked you, so I’m just posting to let you know I’m still reading…

    answers by proxy, in sequence;
    some do,
    the pill,
    who knows?,
    why and for what would anyone do that?,
    email, phone number?, i don’t think that’s what she, c., meant.,
    your feigned subcritical is not a question, methinks the lady doth…,
    i can’t answer, loralee; i agree, the girl seems to have a thing for anon attacks,
    no, it’s not her washer,
    or dryer. it’s trickery.,
    insist?, who said?, torturing?, what’s your point?, why exactly is canada “up”?,
    ‘life in ten years’, take that routine on the road, it’s funny. love it.

    and always sister says just the right thing.

    why is canada “up”? huh.

    Though you often speak entertainingly, with typically appropriate grammar, almost always correctly spelled, sometimes you do speak unkindly. Likely the reason the mayberry story was never reposted.
    My question is this; did someone close to you ask for it’s removal, or was it your own conscience..moment of clarity…some kind of personal improvement, that has never brought it back, in spite of the pleading voices of so many?
