Ask Aunt Chelsea, Dec. 18, 2013

Dear Readers: I’ve been drafted to edit Santa’s “Naughty” list. Hopefully, I won’t end up on it for running these (slightly updated) letters from 2012. We’ll make a brand new start of it in the next issue. Until then, you can reach me at askauntchelsea@chelseanow.com. Toodles! Dear Aunt Chelsea, What is your take on this […]

Dear Aunt Chelsea: I’m a college sophomore whose distance from my family makes the trip home for Thanksgiving too much of a hassle (and too much of an expense). I have several invites from friends — and even a few people I don’t know very well. But the thought of making smalltalk at the holiday […]

Ask Aunt Chelsea, Nov. 7, 2013

Dear Aunt Chelsea: My roommate recently adopted a cat. Now, I like cats, or at least funny cats as seen on YouTube — but I never had pets growing up and don’t really understand the appeal of owning one. Sure, she’s cute. But she also likes to attack my feet, wakes me up at five […]

Dear Aunt Chelsea: My almost-teenage daughter wants to go as Miley Cyrus for Halloween — and not the “Hannah Montana” version. Actually, her idea for the costume isn’t any more risqué than what you’d see on the beach — but I’m worried that giving my approval would be like approving of everything Miley’s been up […]

Dear Aunt Chelsea: I am engaged to get married to my long-term, same-sex partner. We have always been very much in love and have had a great relationship…until recently. My partner never has any money for our expenses and I am now supporting him. Before I met him, I practiced cross-dressing. It was a great […]

Dear Aunt Chelsea: I just moved to New York a few months ago, and I’ve never lived in an apartment building. Now this country girl, who’s used to wide open spaces, finds herself in a studio apartment that’s underneath a bunch of forgetful 20-somethings who are eventually going to destroy her little patch of happiness. […]

Ask Aunt Chelsea, Aug. 14, 2013

Dear Aunt Chelsea: Your Advice Please: My girlfriend/wife/boss is turning 50, so it’s a big deal/decade. But she doesn’t want a party. I even offered to hire someone to organize a “Very Senior Prom” with 20-200 of her closest friends, but she declined, as she doesn’t want to be the center of attention. She also […]

Ask Aunt Chelsea, Week of July 31, 2013

Dear Aunt Chelsea, I am very mad at my co-workers. Every day, I go to get coffee from our break room to find that no one has been considerate enough to start a new pot. I might be able to forgive this mishap — but even worse, no one has even cleaned the coffee pot. […]

Ask Aunt Chelsea, July 17, 2013

Dear Aunt Chelsea, I grew up with a very proper upstate New York Mom, and she worked very hard on my backwoods Vermont Dad to improve his manners. Of course, all us kids were brought up to know how to set the table, what not to say around certain guests and so forth. My mother […]

Ask Aunt Chelsa, Week of July 3, 2013

My Dear Readers: Your old Aunt Chelsea’s E-mail bag always seems to be a barometer of what’s eating the good citizens of her beloved neighborhood — and every so often, it overflows with letters of a similar ilk. Recently, summertime etiquette has been on your brains, as is the case with these two doozies. So […]
