Jersey Shore in the BK?: BROOKLYN BEACH CLUB CASTING CALL

O

M

G.

A friend of mine sent along this "casting call" for a Brooklyn Beach Club show to me and I really just can't stop reading it.

"There's gonna be friggin' partying, friggin' drinking, and friggin' dancing -- all friggin' summer. Fugheddaboudit!

So if you tan before going to the beach, if every meal starts and ends with garlic, and you're looking to have the best summer of your life, send us an email at brooklynbeachcasting@gmail.com"

If every meal starts AND ends with garlic?? What does that even mean?

But wait! There is sooooo much more!

BREAKING: Fresh Direct Has Got Bigger Problems Than Idling Trucks [ACCIDENT ON UNION & 8TH AVE]

Yowza.

A Fresh Direct Truck smashed the shit out of a Pathfinder last night on the corner of Union and 8th Ave.

First of all, let it be said that the corner is a total fucking menace. I'm not sure what goes on there, or why its so prone for having accidents happen there, but it sooooo is.

Last night at around 10:30pm, Greg came running up from his basketball game with a directive for me to get down to the street pronto. He swore that a Fresh Direct truck, not moments before had plowed into a Pathfinder (and the 5 cars in front of it) and that if I cared at all about journalism, or my neighborhood, or any of you bitches, I would go. I grabbed my camera (braless, ppl! That's how *much* I CARE!) and ran down to snap some photos.

Design Blahg: Can You Dig It?

Ok, so ta da! I started another blog!

It's right here and it's called Design Blahg. I'm trying to bring the FIPS snark and attitude to the world of Interior Design. Will it work? Who the fuck knows, but I'm tryin.

If you bitches felt like hopping on over there and throwing down a comment or two so it doesn't look like a ghost town, that would rock.

Of course, I still love you long time and FIPS isn't going anywhere (duh).

My Walk On The Wild Side: The Three Little Bears and Me

Not sure I've mentioned that I am pretty much a city girl. I love nature as long as it comes without the bugs and wildlife. No likey insects and snakes espesh. Not that I would call in Woody Allen to exterminate a bedbug in the bathroom, but you get where I'm coming from here.

So, the little one and I escaped our perpetual weekend abandonment (little league season) to head out to the wilds of Pennsylvania with friends over the weekend. Hammock? Check. Pretty trees? Check. Cedar smell? Check. Trampoline? Oh yeah! Check (even did a spreadeagle). Bears in the backyard??? CHECKKKKKKKK!
