Back Burner Friends and Bullshit


Hello and happy Monday (evening) This week I thought I would bring you a bit of a rant and some advice for said rant. I wanted to address the topic of back burner friends. Don’t know what that is? Well, let me tell you. A Back Burner Friend can be defined as someone who: claims to be your friend, bosom buddy, pal, chum, but when you really need them they pussy foot out of your life. They want the good parts … Continue reading →

A Lesson Learned the Hard Way: Dog Bite


This is my dog Zazu.  He is not an asshole. This is a meme about a dachshund (dox-en) who looks like an asshole. Recently, I was bit by an over-protective dachshund. So, I decided to blog about dog bites. They happen. I didn’t know what to do. The result was an infected finger and four stitches. I want you, Fort Collins, to be informed as to what to do when you get bit by a dog. My injury could have … Continue reading →

A Tale of Taste of Fort Collins


Fort Collins is getting too big for it’s britches. In other words, we are bursting at the seams. As in, too many people live here. I love that we make the top cities to live in the US all the time, but fuck, we are growing faster than the weed in the local dispensary. It is getting so that even our beloved festivals are becoming, well, a shit show. I always breathe a sigh of relief when the CSU students … Continue reading →

Are You Really That Stupid?


I recently came across an article that had real questions from Yahoo Answers that were, for lack of a better term, just plain stupid.  I find it really hard to believe that they are serious questions that people ask.  I got to reading the article and realized that these people are serious. I want to give the world the benefit of the doubt, but it is impossible when I come across something like this.  People are dumb.  I thought that … Continue reading →

Robyn Rants: Men


Men. Can’t live with em… Can’t kill ’em… I mean… live without ’em. I think that one of natures cruelest jokes is that we are put on this Earth to not only procreate with the opposite sex, but co-habitate with them as well. I mean, how can one species be so different from one another? OK so we don’t have to co-habitate with one another. I used to think that my life would be a lot easier if I were … Continue reading →

Robyn and Skippy Say: Why Fort Collins is Great

Beer, Beer and More Beer Robyn: That’s right, we are the Napa Valley of beer! And … Continue reading →

She Says: Find your Kink

christian grey

Dear Not Krazy About Kinky, Woman to woman I need to level with you. You. Have. To. Tell. Him. You are still a virgin and you expect to go in without mentioning this to someone who practically has a doctorate in sex? You are out of your mind if you think that it will be a good experience for you if you just go along “ho hum-ing” thing whole thing. I made that same mistake. Not that the guy I … Continue reading →

Question Of The Week: Should I get Kinky?


Dear Robyn and Skippy, I have started seeing this amazing guy! He is rich, drives a nice car, buys me stuff, he is sexy as hell, AND owns his own house.  The problem is, he is into kinky sex. I mean, we are talking whips, chains, handcuffs, toys… you name it! He has his own room dedicated to sex and, here’s the kicker, I am still a virgin and he doesn’t know that. I think I could get into all … Continue reading →

Robyn’s Rant: Dogs, Disabilities and Deplorable Neighbors


This week I bring you something a little different: Sometimes Skippy and I go through dry spells here at Ask Us where the people of Fort Collins just aren’t writing in. Then sometimes we get a lot of people writing in, but not really writing anything worth publishing. Sometimes we have good questions, sometime we don’t, and sometimes we come up with things like Robyn’s Rant just to make sure we have content. This is different. This man reached out … Continue reading →
