WHO GIVES A SHIT: Al Di La Garbage?

Most of us are very familiar with Al Di La as *the* spot in town to get a pretty kickass, delish Italian meal. But FIPS reader J. doesn't really give a shit about that anymore. Cause mostly she's just sick and tired of all the disgusting Al di La garbage that's rotting on the street every morn.

Check it:

"I just got a dog and this opened a portal to different parallel universe in Park Slope. It's like it was there the whole time and somehow I never saw it. It's glorious, really! If you've never been to off-leash hours in PP on a weekend morning, just go. Even if you don't have a dog- it's not as creepy as taking a call on your cell at a park, and than realizing your smoke is blowing into the area where the slides are.

Breaking: My Pediatricians Are Getting Divorced

I learned of a shocking, SHOCKING breakup on Friday night. And I'm not referring to Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal. No, I speak of Drs. Glaser and Gordon, my kids' lifelong pediatricians. 

The littlest tyrant had a raging pain in the ear on Friday afternoon, which had us running up 8th Ave for a last-minute medical intervention, only to be greeted with an impossible choice of trying to decide who gets custody of us in the breakup.

"How very Sophie's Choice," commented a mom amok blogger Nicole on my Facebook status update.

Park Slope 100 List Dropped

Only The Blog Knows Boring came out with their annual Park Slope 100 list last week. You know, the "fifth  annual alphabetical list of 100 people, places and things that make Park Slope such a special place to live. 100 Stories, 100 ways of looking at the world."

If you can actually get through the whole thing without having to sniff glue to stay awake, you deserve an all expense paid trip to the non-ghetto Target in Harlem.

Personally, I thought the thing read like one of those "senior lists"--is that what they're called? Like when you're a senior in H.S. and they print out each seniors thank yous/memories in a big list, which is really nothing more than a desperate attempt for most of us to ensure that everyone knew that even though we weren't ON the cheerleading squad, we were still FRIENDS with the cheerleaders. I WAS ACTUALLY MORE POPULAR THAN YOU THOUGHT I WAS, PPL.

So yeah, aside from #75 (Congrats, Allison!) it was snoozefest 2010 pour moi.

Tenant To Children: STFU; Stuy Town, We Salute You!

Well, well, well.

Looks like Park Slope is not alone when it comes to whiny assed misbehaving children.

Our BALLER comrade over at Lux Living, a blog about life at that gigantic NYC apt megalopolis Stuy Town, received a plea from an angry resident about some gregarious, loud-mouthed kids:

"FOR WHATEVER REASON parents feel the need to get their hostile and annoying children OUT of their apartments and INTO this "playground" first thing in the morning on weekends. How do they pass the time? They scream! At each other. At the squirrels. At their parents, who mostly ignore them because they have become desensitized to how awful their children are.

Parents, nobody likes your kids. THEY ARE ONLY CUTE TO YOU. Keep them indoors, tied up, gagged, drugged, WHATEVER, and stop letting them loose at 8AM on Saturday mornings."

Some pretty sage advice if you ask me.
