I worship at the altar of the Advice Goddess

I seriously enjoy the advice stylings of Amy Alkon, aka the Advice Goddess. It takes a lot of the right kind of sass to make yourself a deity, and she’s got it.

She successfully fulfills one of the major advice columnists functions, namely, calling writers on their bullshit and seeing straight through their justifications, rationalizations, descriptivations, and all their other ations.

We need advice columnists for this sort of thing, because our friends too often love us too much to call us on this stuff, or they do it in such a gentle way we don’t recognize it, or they do it clearly, and we get mad at them for interfering (usually when we’ve asked for their help).

So three cheers, Amy Alkon. Not to mention her awesome, puntastic column titles.

If I were an advice columnist (someday….) I’d want to be this kind. Think I’d have to dye my hair red and wear a bad ass high-collared jacket?

I hope so.

  1. Stupid work web filter. It won’t let me read the Advice Goddess because it falls into the “adult” category. As Dan Lubrano would say, “laaaaaaaaaaame!”
