Phish-o-Lution 2.0 [Welcome To Our New Life, Erica!!!!!!!]

I know it is early in the morning, but I had to set my alarm so that I could post this before Erica woke up. I'm so incredibly excited to be sharing this news with both the FIPS community and my wife all at the same time.

A little over a year ago, some of you might remember that I hijacked this blog for one magical, tye-dyed day, in my own attempt to cause a Phish-o-lution right here in Park Slope. While Erica and I love each other very much, Phish has always been a topic that we were not able to see eye-to-eye on, and by taking over PHIPS FIPS, I was truly hoping to bring us closer to a big picture understanding that Phish is way more than just a band to me...it's a way of life.

FUCKED ON BEDFORD AVENUE

My top secret identity revealed.

Dear loyal readers of FIPS, 

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for your (bastard version of) love and support, but it's time I unload the news: I'm moving back to Williamsburg.

'I Am A Gay American Basset Hound'

Please note: this post has been dictated entirely by Oliver's Animal Communicator. However, all thoughts, opinions and points-of-view are his and his alone.

I know that my mom Erica has written about me many time on this blog before (and also on Twitter). Truth be told, I kind of like it.

I've met some of you around the neighborhood and I'm always really flattered when one of you FIPS readers recognizes me.

In fact, I feel like you have all really embraced me as a community, and that's why I felt it was time I was truly honest with you. And that means telling the truth and telling the WHOLE TRUTH.

Not Eating Out in Park Slope

The blessing and curse of Park Slope is that we can't walk two feet without running into a restaurant of some sort.  The blessing, obviously, is that we don't have to cook—like, ever.  The curse, of course, is that eating out all of the time is e-x-p-e-n-s-i-v-e.  Just look at the FIPS Throwdowns if you want proof—$17 for some noodles and breaded chicken? COME ON, SZECHUAN DELIGHT, SOME OF US HAVE FAMILIES TO SUPPORT.  And since we spend all of our money on rent, it's difficult to justify shelling out $20 for a single meal, especially since $20 can buy a week's worth of groceries.  

Cue The Art of Eating In, the blog-turned-book of Brooklyn's own Cathy Erway.  The book details Erway's two-year jaunt not eating out (the experiment was also documented in her blog, Not Eating Out in New York).

Open Post [GO CRAZY, Y'ALL]

If you think this open thread bullshit has ANYTHING to do with the fact that I have nothing else to post today...you know, cause I got home late last night from seder number two, spent the past 48 hours plane-ing, train-ing and automobile-ing my ass all the fuck all over the LIRR and the NJ Transit so that I could go eat matzoh and in a "leaning position," have piles of laundry that need landering, a dog that needs his ass taken to the park and a floor that needs vacuuming, well then yeah: YOU ARE TOTALLY WRONG. I don't use open threads as a crutch like that!

Sheesh.

So, WTF is on your minds? Tell us e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g...
