FIPS Cares: Hope For Brooklyn

Holy Shit, I was just chased down Garfield by Tracy Flick. I signed her petition to get her on the ballot for "female district leader."

I will def be voting for her come November, if only because her bio says "when she was a senior at Hunter College High School, she brought a suit against then Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld for illegal military recruitment tactics."

And there is that awesome photo above. God, I want her to unbutton a few buttons on that blue oxford.

WHO GIVES A SHIT: Where Do You Get Your Hair Cut?

So, I cheat on my normal hairstylist for a simple trim and what do I come away with?  Bangs that make me look like I'm flirting with some sort of horrible Bettie Page time warp.  And no, I can't recover any charm in the situation now that I've been told, "Yeah, you've definitely looked better."

I'm not going to name the stylist or shit on his/her reputation because I'm fairly certain we just had a (massively epic appearance-aleringly bad) miscommunication, but needless to say I'm looking to move on.  And not just to another person at that salon--this was the second stylist I'd tried at this particular Slope establishment, of which I adore the atmosphere, staff, prices, and general upscale-ness, so naturally, I'm disappointed.  But clearly, we're just not on the same (Bettie) page.

So, I pass the torch to you, ladies: Where do you go in the 'hood to get your hair cut?  I have my ninja-levels-of-awesome-fancy-stylist at a salon embarrassingly far from Brooklyn (read: literally in another state), but I need to find a new place where I can go to make sure I avoid the wet dog look on a monthly basis when my bangs take over my face.

Suggestion box open.

It's time for our yet another edition of our monthly series, FIPS Food Throwdowns.  And I don't know about you bitches, but if I think "delivery," I think pizza. 

So, what two places should we try out?  Who has the best pizza in Park Slope?  Tell me tell me tell me!

FIPS Cares: Show Me The Money

The husband has a new(ish) mantra that goes something like this...

"You want (fill in the blank: to go to Vienna for Christmas? to buy a front door? to pay the bills?) Get a job!"

To which I reply:

"I have a job. In fact, I have many jobs."

To which he replies:

"A real job. As in one that involves a salary and perhaps a subway."

Yes, I'm getting the distinct sense that my time of playing June to his Ward is drawing to a close.

I'm with him. In principle.

ESPN Match Truck: World Cup B.S. AND Delish Food

Yo, so if you're looking for another spot to watch this World Cup insanity, and don't mind standing out on the sidewalk with 11 billion strollers and homeless people, you can come to GAP today from 9am-5pm and hit up the ESPN Match Truck.

They'll be showing shit all day.

More importantly (in my eyes, however) they're also serving food from all over the world, with a menu designed by the LA-based Kogi BBQ truck chef Roy Choi.

Here's a detailed rundown of how all the food tastes, and you can also follow the action on Twitter from the Match Truck's offish account.
