From TONY the other day:
"You’ve been to Park Slope, so you know what hell looks like: pushy, self-righteous parents and their precious progenies. Well, war photographer, author and mother Deborah Copaken Kogan has been permanently consigned to that flaming pit of parenthood and has sent back dispatches in the form of her new book Hell Is Other Parents. Surely it can’t be that bad? Yet Kogan herself has said the day-to-day parenting conflicts sometimes makes her feel like the “playground is a worse battle zone than Afghanistan.”
Color me VERY fucking intrigued. Any BREEDERS out there read this book?
- Deathly afraid of riding a bike in NYC.
- AND, very fucking lazy.
*BUT,* if I wasn't going to be away this weekend (READ: thank fucking gawd I am away this weekend), this is the sort of thing I could maybe get my ass motivated for: Gears and Grub.
You can Facebook RSVP herrrre.
Apparently Bay Ridge is recycling 4% more of their shit than we are and I, for one, think that that's appalling.
At times like these, I always like to use a quote from my FAVEMOVIEOFALLTIME Top Gun in order to get you bitches motivated:
Stinger: And let's not bullshit, Maverick. Your family name ain't the best in the Navy. You need to be doing it better and cleaner than the other guy. Now what is it with you?
Maverick: Just want to serve my country and be the best fighter pilot in the Navy, sir!
Stinger: Don't screw around with me, Maverick. You're one hell of an instinctive pilot. Maybe too good. I'd like to bust your butt but I can't. I got another problem here. I gotta send somebody from this squadron to Miramar. I gotta do something here, I still can't believe it. I gotta give you your dream shot! I'm gonna send you up against the best. You two characters, are going to Top Gun. For five weeks, you'll be flying against the best fighter pilots in the Navy. You guys were number two, Cougar was number one. Cougar lost it-turned in his wings. You guys are number one.
So?? Do you want to be NUMBER ONE, PEOPLE?? Do you want to KICK BAY RIDGE'S ASS?? If so, get the fuck out there and recycle some goddammned kombucha drink bottles already.
