[UPDATE] So, I Guess You Just Don't Get Your Mail Anymore If You Live In South Slope?

UPDATE: OK, So Amanda wanted to get back in on the "you've got mail...or not" sitch and she sent along the some detailed instructions on what to do if yo mail is getting jacked (we've included them at the end of the post).

Though I was certainly entertained by Amanda's post on how she hasn't been getting her mail for the past week, I was guessing she had a nosy neighbor, an annoying landlord who was throwing shit out, or maybe even a light week for bills.

I mean, over here in the N. Slope, I've been getting my mail fine every damn day.

But here's the thing: *lots* of you bitches have been leaving comments on that post and it sounds like NONE of your asses out there in the South Slope are getting your mail!? And that this wouldn't be the first time this has happened!

I mean WTF??

I Give A Shit! [Haiti Do-Gooder Diet]

I've been imagining what we'd do if Bagel Hole and Terrace Bagels and even PS 321 (not to mention sundry neighbors) were under rubble.

So I just donated my children's after school candy and my residual holiday over-eating funding stream to Haitian relief. I figure I'll finally stop eating copious amounts of cinnamon toast butter and bread from the farmer's market, fit into my jeans again, and appease my easily-appeased conscience.  

If I didn't have a 10 year old cell phone, I could have texted in my donation (Text "Yele" to 501501, which will automatically donate $5 to the Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund--the charge will appear on your next cell phone bill).I went with Wyclef (Yele.org) by the way, because he says 100% is going to relief efforts...and also I like the Fugees.  

Here's 9 more ways you can help RIGHT NOW (well 8, minus the Yele thing).

'Is There No Fabulous Left in Park Slope??' [PSP BREEDER RANT]

There are many, many good reasons to shell out the $25 smackers required to sign your baby making ass up for Park Slope Parents.

There are tips on how to "Ferberize" your bebes, women ready, willing, and able to answer any breastfeeding query you might have, suggestions on great piano teachers in the area, and rec's for good nannies. But my most favorite-ist thing about PSP by far, is when people post shit like this little gem:

Recycle Your E-Waste [Whatever the Fuck That Is]

(8 track tapes aren't technically on the list, but I thought they looked cool)

Ok people, recycling ain't just for coopretards!

There's an E-Waste Recycling Day at Prospect Park on January 17th.

I had no clue either, but I looked this shit up and e-waste is basically: computers, laptops, monitors, TV's, peripherals (keyboards, mice, cables, printers, copiers, etc), cell phones, phones, VCR's, answering machines, etc. Only hitch is, you can't bring computers from your business...so if you want to recycle a computer from your business, you should probably just pretend that its NOT from your business don't.

Anyway, if you have shit like this laying around, don't throw it out. It accounts for 70% of the toxins found in landfills, and that's not so cool.

E-Waste Recycling Day at Prospect Park
Sunday, January 17th

10am - 4pm
PPW & 3rd Street
