Who Gives A Shit: Wax On, Wax Off?

Do you get waxed? If so, where? (and not like WHERE on your body...where in the hood?). We have a FIPS reader in need:

"So my previously beloved bikini waxer at Rompal has taken to talking on her bluetooth during the whole procedure.  She's done it twice and has done it with my friend too.  She is speaking Russian, so in addition to feeling slighted, I feel paranoid.  

Is she talkin' smack about my admittedly long neglected short and curlies? What if the person she is talking to says something shocking, and then she rips the waxing strip off me all crooked in surprise?" 

Can someone help a sista out??

[ed note: if you want, I can totes hook you up with Foreign Dude! He can sit out in the waiting room (i.e. with his ear glued to the door) and we can try and uncover whether or not this bitch is making fun of your cooch the whole time??].

WHASSUP: Halloween Weekend

A whollllle lotta shit's going down this weekend for Halloween, so let's get this thing started:

*Saturday, Oct 30: Bash by the bridge. All Hallow's Eve party hosted by the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy to raise funds for free public programming in the park. (This BALLLER highly supports this park.) 8pm to 1am: drinks, dancing, tickets.

*Sunday, Oct 31: General store. King's County General Store being generally awesome promoting all things local for Halloween, from 12-5pm at Southpaw. Yelp-sponsored Halloween party with free admission, drink specials, and yes, you can even bring the kids. Get more info, and say hi if you see me, elusive and enigmatic as I am.

*Sunday, Oct 31: Canine costume contest. Make your dog miserable by dressing him up for prizes! 2pm canine costume contest at the Brooklyn Dog House, which is here.

*Sunday, Oct 31: Howll-o-Ween! 3rd Annual Howlloween Block Bark Party for Sean Casey Animal Rescue. Food, raffles, and, of course, animal costume contest. 12-5pm. Details here.

*Sunday, Oct 31: Mad Men Halloween party. Mad Men-themed Halloween costume party at Slope's Aussie hang, Sheep Station, that's also a benefit for WomenForWomen. Put on your best Joan boobs and support microfinance. 7:30 doors, costume contest at 10. Details here.

Also, our buds at Brokelyn also have a sweet free 'n' cheap roundup that's worth checking out (and yes, they even include stuff to do in ProPark with your miserable offspring).

Thanks for sending along your haps (no, the East Village and Bushwick still do not count as "Park Slope and surrounding areas," but good try, yet again), even if you flood my inbox. Now go get drunk with your Slope self in your sluttiest garb and enjoy the weekend.

Add more good stuff in the comments.

Speaking of Piss: The Skankiest Public School Potty Award Goes To....

P.S. 58 (aka The Carroll School) in the economically deprived neighboring hood of Carroll Gardens. 

Yes, per a few (dare we say it) pissed-off parents, the fancily nicknamed Carroll School cannot seem to supply students with soap or paper towels. This despite "tony restaurants, boutiques catering to your every whim, moms clogging the streets while pushing $700 Bugaboo strollers and stomping around in $100 Hunter rain boots"

Anyone Looking For A New Apt?

Cause I know a totally great place right in the heart of Park Slope!

And it's only $18,000 FUCKING DOLLARS A MONTH!

I just checked the Corcoran listing and apparently this $18k does not include a full-time prostitute and/or bags of cocaine. It's JUST for the apt.

So yeah, I have an appt tomorrow to see it. Obvies I've got money to burn what with all the benji's I make from bloggin...

Who Gives A Shit: Costumed Canines?

Where is the outrage, I ask you???

With all the rations of sugar, honey, and iced tea served up daily to Park Slope's parenting population, why isn't anybody talking about the state of dog ownership today?

Because I'm going to be sorely tempted to call the four-legged equivalent of child services on some of my neighbors if I see any dogs dressed as Elvis or even a chia pet next weekend!

So, fuck what you or your little people are dressing up as for Halloween: what's the pooch wearing? (And are there any good Halloween pooch events going on in the Slope?).

Where do you come down on this great canine costume debate?
