A Grand Slam Dear Roxy

by roxycaligirl101

In a war of brains, a Shoyru wins. In a war of wit, a Shoyru wins. In a war of beauty, a Shoyru wins. In a war of advice, a Shoyru wins. In the war of Roxy vs. Sloth, a Shoyru wins.

Take a hint, Slothy. I am going to win this war with you and there is nothing you can do about it. I am sorry that a girly, fashionable Striped Shoyru is beating you but it was sure to happen. If I hadn’t stepped up to the plate, someone else would have, and they would be fighting this war instead of me. You’ve met your match, Slothy, and I just hope that you have the guts to admit it. Just the way I hope you have the guts to admit defeat when the time comes, because you’re defeat will come. You try to enslave Neopia, the species of Grundos, blow up the world and mess with the awesome Space Faerie. You just have it coming to you, Slothy. What goes around comes around, and you’re about to get it hard. It’s getting down to the end of the game, Sloth, and I am up at the plate. Trust me, I always hit homeruns. Can you strike me out? I highly doubt it, because nobody strikes me out!

Dear Roxy: I’m a Baby Lupe with a dad who is always snoring! My mom and I keep telling him ideas for him to cure his snoring, but he won’t listen. What should I do? I can’t sleep with the sounds of snoring coming from down the hall. -Up Twenty-Four Hours

Dear Up Twenty-Four Hours: Fathers can be quite stubborn and I don’t think that he’ll try a cure for a problem until he admits he has a problem. Let me tell you, snoring is definitely a problem. My brother’s petpet, Darker, snores all the time and it is horrible. I simply just shut my door and bury myself my Pretty Pink Pillows to drown out the sound or I decide to come to the Neopian Times Offices and spend the night, like I am doing tonight. Darker is snoring extra loud this evening. I suggest to Oke that we have Darker sleep outside but he was afraid that neighbors would complain. How a Kougra with that big of ears sleeps through Darker’s snoring, I’ll never know. I hope you get some sleep soon. -Roxy

Dear Roxy:

What do you get when you cross a fat Weewoo with Chet Flash, a roll of toilet paper, and a Gelert? -Mr. Black

Dear Mr. Black: You get one huge mess and an inside joke. -Roxy

Dear Roxy: How did the feud with Sloth-Man start? -An Inquiring Grundo

Dear An Inquiring Grundo: The day I was born. I wish I could say the day Slothy was born, but he’s so old that Tyrannia is high-tech compared to when he was a toddler. Besides, he spilled a pitcher of Strawberry Lemonade on my brand new black dress. No one ruins one of my outfits and gets away with it. -Roxy

Dear Roxy:

Is it you who puts the alias at the bottom of the letters asking for advice, or is it the person that needs advice? -Unsigned

Dear Unsigned:

Most of the time the people who send me the letters make up their own aliases, but when some people leave their letters unsigned instead of responding to them as unsigned I create an alias for them. If I called everyone unsigned I would have way too many in this letter. Congratulations on being the first and only Unsigned in my articles.


Dear Roxy:

How can you stand the stress of receiving so many advice letters and questions, and even insults **GASP** everyday? It has to be crazy!

-A Loving Fan

Dear A Loving Fan: I guess I just handle stress really well, unlike Slothy. He has at least twenty of those little stress balls in his desk. He always squeezes them too hard and they end up breaking, he must go through at least two a day. I feel kind of bad for him that he can’t handle the stress of competing against a Shoyru like me. What can I say? I am a handful. -Roxy

Dear Roxy: Is it true that Dr. Sloth sent you a Valentine’s Day card? -An Envious Red Shoyru

Dear An Envious Red Shoyru: How did you know about that? Slothy did send me a card, I am just a little worried it wasn’t covered with some disease, curse or itching powder. So far nothing bad has happened, but I highly doubt that he sent that card without an alternative motive. -Roxy

Dear Roxy:

You told us last article about your brothers and sisters, but I want to know about the rest of your family. -Rainbow

Dear Rainbow: First of all, there is my petpet, an Angelpuss named Troxy. She’s helped out with my articles a couple of times. She’s like a demon and completely out of control. She is dramatic, selfish, bossy, angry, and hates fashion. It’s amazing how she is my petpet, I don’t see her much at the house. She spends her time with a friend named Frank. I heard his occupation was a briefs salesman. Random, I know. Then, there is Lady Lazzie; only the sweetest Snarhook alive. She belongs to my sister Queenie and loves to go to the Battledome with her. My brother Kudio’s petpet is Merlin. The Blue Doglefox helps my wizard brother brew potions, he has an uncanny ability to fetch almost any ingredient from an eye of Mortog to the nose hair of a bank robber. Last but not least is Darker, the Mutant Puppyblew, and Oke’s friend. Sadly, one of Oke’s only friends. They really relate to each other because their outsides might not be as beautiful as their insides. Darker is the grand snorer of the family. He snores like no other petpet or Neopet I know. The last member of our family is Roxycaligirl101. She’s very energetic, friendly, and feisty. She loves to throw her world famous parties and write for The Neopian Times. She isn’t as good of a writer as me, but she’s learning. That’s all of my immediate family, we’ll save extended family until next week. That is if you really want to know. -Roxy

Dear Roxy:

I have two problems. One: I need fashion advice. Blue and white combination or blue and pink?

-Mystery Island Coconut

Dear Mystery Island Coconut:

Blue and white, this summer is all about them. -Roxy

Dear Roxy:

What is Tuesday? -An Actor From Terror Mountain

Dear An Actor From Terror Mountain:

Tuesday is a day of the week between Monday and Wednesday. It’s not as good as Saturday, Sunday or Friday but not worse than Monday. -Roxy

Dear Roxy:

Where did you get the idea of giving advice in the Neopian Times? -Just Wondering

Dear Just Wondering: I am not really sure. I like giving advice and I noticed that The Neopian Times didn’t have an advice column. All great newspapers have advice columns and I knew that The Neopian Times deserved an advice column, too. I rounded up a bunch of letters from my friends and wrote my first article. The Editor of the Neopian Times liked and asked me to come for an interview and I was hired. I was the first ever advice columnist ever for the Neopian Times, Slothy was second. He comes in second at a lot of things, especially against me. -Roxy

Dear Roxy:

We need your help. Our spaceship sent to Kreludor is malfunctioning. From the radio message, we suspect Dr. Sloth had something to do with it, and we need your brain to help our ship.

Can you solve this math problem?

if E + D > 592

if D -Official Neopian Space Team

Dear “Official” Neopian Space Team: Nice try, but you need to do your own math homework. I know for a fact that Slothy would never use the variable A. If he wanted you to solve for an unknown it would be X. Once again, nice try, but getting someone else to do your homework only hurts you. -Roxy

Dear Roxy

What’s your favorite game?

-Happy Guy

Dear Happy Guy: Splat-A-Sloth for obvious reasons. -Roxy

Dear Miss Roxy:

You write very well. Do you have a contract with the Neopian Times? I know there is an opening at the Meridellian Register, if you're interested. I await your reply. -Mr. Fish Head, Restaurant columnist for The Meridellian Register

Dear Mr. Fish Head: Thank you for your kind offer, but I am loyal to the Neopian Times. I am sorry, but there is no possible way I could ever leave the wonderful friends and editor that I have met here. Sorry. Best wishes to you and your literary career. -Roxy
