FIPS MARCH MADNESS POOL: JUST DO IT

It is officially my favorite time of year.  The birds are chirping, the sun is shining, my friends start questioning my commitment to my social life, and my dad says things like, “I’m so glad I had a son.”

IT, MY FRIENDS, IS TIME FOR MADNESS.  MARCH MADNESS.

Besides discovering this week that I was a childhood punk, you will also learn that I am an out-of-my-mind insane college basketball fan.  Whatever, let it go.  The point to this self-indulgent post is that FIPS has a March Madness pool on ESPN.

Click here to join (password is “fips”).  You only have until NOON today to get in on the action, SO DO IT.  Beyond the obvious glory of winning the Internet, there may be a prize TBD that is even better than watching me publically embarrass myself with all of the unreasonable upsets I chose.

Do it, Slope.   Just fucking do it.

[GUEST POST] ST. PATTY’S 2K10: BOMBED ON ROBICELLI’S FRIED IRISH CAR BOMBS

When I first read FIPS’ 40,000 posts about fried Robicelli's cupcakes, I thought, “This blog must have so many readers that they can spare a few, because Erica and Meredith are trying to kill my ass.” I mean, FRIED CUPCAKES. Really?

Yes, really.

His name is Maxo Etienne and he's been missing since Monday from his house on 12th Street.

He suffers from dementia, has high blood pressure and is also diabetic, so he may seem confused or unaware of his surroundings.

"He left home to take a short walk around 3:00PM, EST. Last seen on 12th Street and 5th Avenue in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Sixty-years-old, Haitian-American black male, around 5"3, with a shaved head. wearing a Grey T-shirt, black or dark blue jacket with white stripes in the sleeves and Black sweat pants.

St. Patrick's Day: Stay Home or Go Balls Out?

Usually, I look for any excuse to drink.  Weekends, weeknights, good days, bad days, football games, baby showers, funerals—you know how I roll.  

But there's something about St. Patrick's Day that categorically terrifies me.  The crowds! The brawls! The leprechauns!

I just want to get through today without seeing or smelling vomit anywhere.  If I do that, I win.

So, are you going out?  Or are you staying in to avoid the puke-covered ruckus?

Who Gives A Shit: Could You Live Anywhere Else?

OK, in case you didn't notice that Meredith (and Allison) were pretty much writing alllll the posts around here for the past couple of days, they were. Cause yeah: my ass was in Austin for SXSW getting ed-u-macated about the internet-n-shit.

Anyway, my little sidetrip to Austin got me thinking: would it be possible for me to ever live there? Like outside of NYC? Somewhere else?

For me, my answer is pretty much no. NYC has ruined me for any other city (with the exception of mebbe mebbe Los Angeles). And I'm not counting anywhere else outside of the U.S., cause duh: I could totally move to Florence with no problemo tomorrow and not even think twice about it.

But I'm wondering what's up with you guys: Could you/would you live anywhere else? If so, where?
