      For starters…love the blog.

      There is a girl I used to be very tight with, this is nearly 3 years ago now. I had a crush on her, and we suddenly stopped talking, and I’m not sure why exactly. Would it be weird to try talking to her again now? I don’t want anything romantic, just a friendship…is this possible? Or am I crazy? – this one needs it’s own blog post.  look for that this week.  til then, you are not crazy.

    it’s not too late.  ask me more.  or feel free to say whatever you feel like saying but have no place to say it.

  1. If I had another question, would it be too late to ask it? [Note: that’s the question I wanted to ask….]

  2. I love Hanson, in the most platonic, manly way.

  3. I like that the only question you got about a body part was from a girl, and it was only about belly buttons. This means your readership is classy (and/or terrified of your wrath) enough not to ask such things.

    I’ve always wondered what kind of questions the girls get that put “I’m an open book, ask me anything” as their answer to the usual “tell us a secret” questions on dating profiles. Given the number of stories of epic stupidity to come out of dating site messaging systems, I hold out little hope that they are as classy.

    An excellent dinner guest list. I especially like Mitch Hedberg, Ernest Hemingway and Winston Churchill. That would make for quite the interesting evening.

    Well, since you suggested it: Who shot Kennedy?

    • look up a series the History Channel did called The Men Who Killed Kennedy. it’s a story i was told 5 years before the series aired. it’s missing a few key pieces but most of the info is there.

      it was done by a team. of course. it certainly wasn’t Oswald.

      i was told by a former assassin for the US government. he didn’t tell me who hired the hitmen, but i suspect he knows.

  8. Kevin says:

    Well done, Sharideth… well done.

  9. […] not calling this one a Dear Sharideth because it was in amongst the ask me anything questions and i kinda thought it could use its own blog […]
