There’s currently a keg of green beer available on the top floor of your nwktumblr’s building and we’re not so sure it’s worth getting in the elevator to take part. What do you all think? What should we do!? On one hand it’s like, yay, St. Patty’s Day, green beer during work hours and all that. But then on the other hand it’s green beer at 3:45pm on a work day and we’ll probably get so tired and then have to think about having just downed a glass of food coloring for what? FOR WHAT, TUMBLR?! So…should we partake?
fashion57 asked: This guy I was "talking to" just randomly stopped talking to me. I miss him but I know it's over. What are some ways to get over him? I'm really hurt.
Find a new guy to “talk to” and have “lots of really long, interesting, and insightful conversations.” You could also always get a bucket of ice cream and watch really bad rom-coms for a few days. That’s well within your rights.
kat-aroo asked: When you're moving in with a significant other for the first time, what is more important in determining whose bed gets to be in the master bedroom and whose gets to be in the guest bedroom - how comfortable the mattress is or how big the bed is?
Going on personal experience we would say comfort over size. Would you rather sleep alone on a log or cuddle in a pile of goose feathers?
Last week we asked if anyone had a question for Ozzy Osbourne. Our entertainment correspondent was speaking with Team Ozzy (the Prince of Darkness is out promoting his new book, “Trust Me, I’m Dr. Ozzy: Advice From Rock’s Ultimate Survivor,” out yesterday) and felt he could get them answered. He did it!
So without further adieu, here’s advice from Ozzy for tumblr.
What bands he currently up to or on loop on his head? :D”
Believe it or not, but I still listen to The Beatles. Nothing else comes close, man.
What’s it like to be married to ‘SHARON’ Osbourne?
A lot f—-ing easier than it is to be married to me.
What’s your favorite children’s book?
Anything with pictures. I’m very dyslexic, so I ain’t exactly one to be reading the Harry Potter books to my grandkids. They’d be drawing a f—-ing pension by the time we got to the end of the first chapter.
If you’ve been on a bender and suddenly need to sober up, is it wise to do more cocaine, or less?
Well, in my experience, people with big coke habits don’t usually snort a line to sober up—when they’re high, they use beer to help ’em come down. The problem for me was, there wasn’t enough beer on the f—-ing planet to bring me down from the amount of s—- I was putting up my nose. Unfortunately, the only real way to sober up is to wait for the alcohol to leave your bloodstream. Either that or build a time machine and go back to the day before you started drinking.
How is he still alive? After so many drugs?
As I said before—luck. I mean, I was once in the back of a tour bus that got hit by a fucking plane. Six more inches, and I’d have been a goner, as would Sharon. Not that I get any comfort from that, ’cos one of my best friends in the world was killed that day. God bless his soul.
That’s it kids. Key Ozzy learnings? Be patient & get lucky! There are more of Ozzy’s answers on the Beast, these are just those sent in by tumblr. Go check ‘em out.
Here’s something fantastic. One of our entertainment correspondents just popped by to tell us Ozzy Osbourne—he the devourer of animal heads, snorter of ants, and all around drug and alcohol aficionado—has agreed to answer a few questions from you guys sometime over the weekend. He’s out there promoting his new health advice book (ed: Ha! Yup. You read that right. It’s out Oct. 11th.) “Trust Me, I’m Dr. Ozzy: Advice From Rock’s Ultimate Survivor.” So let’s do this! Do you have a question for the Prince of Darkness?
