Look, bitches: I tried really hard to not post about this blog--Planet Awesome Kid. REALLY hard.
But then I started clicking around, and before I knew it my gag reflex was engaged, and well....here we are.
I mean, duh...all the kids featured on this blog *are* v. friggin cute; and I'm sure its author is well intentioned, fashion forward, and lovely IRL. BUT, is it me, or is it a little odd to be blogging about the fashion "choices" of children WHO HAVE NO FUCKING CLUE what they are wearing to begin with? And are likely taking a shit in their pants moments after their "fashion photo" is snapped?
WOO HOO FUCK YEAH IT’S BASEBALL PLAYOFF SEASON!!! I’m not actually as excited as all that, but I enjoy baseball enough & was excited because my hometown Red Sox once again made the playoffs this year. Unfortunately, they now have no chance in hell of actually winning the World Series, but I can at least hope that the Yankees don’t win it all...as long as that prick A-Rod doesn't get a championship ring, it's cool with me.
This week, we’ll be taking a look at the numbered streets between 6th & 7th and 7th & 8th, pitting them against each other in a contest of Ruthian proportions. One group of blocks will embody the spirit of my BoSox. While they won't be crowned champions this year, at least they won't be a bunch of millionaire pretty boys. The other set of blocks will be inhabited by the spirit of the Bronx Bombers & will have a good chance of winning it all, but in the end, it won't matter because as we New Englanders say, "Yankees Suck." As some politician or celebrity or dying child throws out the first pitch & the two teams take the field, we'll be reminded of why baseball is both exciting & boring at the same time. Let the uber maudlin, TBS-tastic, steroid-filled judging begin!
Our new fave FIPS reader L. pointed us on over to this deliciously fantastic Craigslist post in the Rants & Raves BK section:
"Just took a walk around Park Slope.
Saw about twelve hot moms, they all looked like they hadn't gotten laid in forever, but were hot.
So ladies/moms of Park Slope and other mom-heavy areas, are you undersexed? And if so, need some assistance?"
The dude (I assume its a dude) even included a PSP logo in his post!
ZOMG, this is such a killer who gives a shit question, riiiiight!?
So here it is: Are Park Slope moms undersexed?
You know what to do, people.
Again, answer in the comments (and feel free to go stealth anon if you want some priv-ass-y).
I gaze out at this smooth, glass, monstrosity on a daily basis, and true confessions: I had always envisioned that the luxuriousness one would encounter upon entering the Richard Meier building On Prospect Park would leave an indelible mark on my soul that could never be erased (without, of course, the purchase of my own multi-million dollar 2bdr BALLER pad, with a terrace and my own parking spot for the car I don't yet have).
Well, I looked behind the curtain last night and went IN to the building to see the place first hand. And, needless to say, my soul didn't really give a shit.
