FUCK YOU, FUCKING MTA, RIGHT IN YOUR FUCKING FACE

I cannot BELIEVE this bullshit.  The MTA—our favorite group of assclowns—has now come up with another genius way to rob us of more money.

They're proposing that monthly Unlimited MetroCards will now be limited to 90 swipes per month.  If that wasn't enough to send you down to the nearest subway station with an assault rifle, you'll have to pay an extra $10 a month for the pleasure of owning a Limited Unlimited MetroCard.

I HATE EVERYONE.

I'm feeling slightly guilty for saying summer in the city stinks last week. I didn't mean figuratively.

Because, despite the fact that I am not coming back until after Labor Day if I can avoid it, summer in the city is a bounty of awesomeness.

R.I.P. Every Fucking Goose In Prospect Park

Eric Thayer for the NYTAs it turns out, that goose who got shot in the neck with an arrow a few weeks ago in Prospect Park had it pretty goddamned easy. At least he didn't get his ass herded into a makeshift goose concentration camp only to get gassed (oh wait...yes he did. He's dead too).

400 geese from Prospect Park also were also not so lucky.

Why Erica Needs to Join the Food Coop, Part III

Some of you may have read of my ongoing recruitment efforts to get Erica to join the partay that is membership in the Park Slope Food Coop. Frankly, I don't know how she can call herself a Park Slope blogger without drinking the kombucha (from a reasonably priced recyclable metal container, $8.99?). How can you properly make fun of the Food Coop without ever attending an orientation or working a shift?

My efforts have been hampered not only by Erica's ever-so-polite intransigence (you have NO idea how well-mannered she is in real life), but also by the fact that the fucking Food Coop has actually had a MONTHS LONG WAITING LIST for new orientations.
