BREAKING: Chip Shop Has No Fried Robicelli's Cupcakes [Or Maybe They Do...Who the Fuck Knows? Hint: not them]

image: nataliedee.com

UPDATE TO THE UPDATE: Now, apparently this shit is on (according to @theessentialman). Whatevs, Chip Shop...I'm done with you.

UPDATE: Robicelli's tweeted me with the following update: "Called us last night and said they had a problem with the oil, so they had to cap the special to last night only. Boourns." I'm no fry daddy, but this makes no sense to me. Everything on the Chip Shop's menu is fried! So if they can't fry the cupcakes, I guess they can't fry anything else on the menu? Also what sort of "problems" could one even have with oil?? Chip Shop FAIL.

Ok, so after reading about, blogging about, and tweeting my fucking face off about the deep fried Robicelli cupcakes that were supposed to be at the Chip Shop this weekend, I was pretty bummed to walk my ass alllll the way over there in the freezing cold (forgot my gloves, went anyway), only to find that no one there had any fucking clue what I was talking about.

Park Slope Snowball Fight??

Did I just see some more snowflakes??

Ever since that last blizzard, I've been pissed that I missed this amazing snowball fight in Times Square.

Then I started thinking: God damn it, we need a good old snowball fight in Park Slope!

It could be a ceremonial breaking of the ice between the nabe haves and have nots: kid-toting vs kid-free,
capitalists vs legal aid lawyers/social workers, newbies vs old guard, boys vs. girls, gym-toned vs fat-assed, employed vs laid off...

I'll even try to talk Erica into setting up a FIPS table with hot cocoa and mulled cider (okay, I don't actually know how to mull cider but how hard canit be??).

If it starts up again and anything sticks tonight, let's all meet tomorrow in long meadow!

THIS WEEKEND: ROBICELLI'S DEEP FRIED CUPCAKES AT THE CHIP SHOP

Look, people, I'm not going to waste a whole lot of space here, because if this shit doesn't interest you solely based on the title of this post, we are clearly not to be meant to be friends.

As Cupcakes Take the Cake has reported, this weekend, the Chip Shop will be featuring DEEP FRIED Robicelli's cupcakes.

Cool or Not Cool: Asking Friends to Child proof Their Apts?

As we've documented, there's nothing I enjoy more than fighting in the comments with self-important BREEDERS who claim that it's RIDICULOUS and OFFENSIVE for me to assume that there is ANY self-importance amongst their group AT ALL (even as they are brilliantly illustrating this self-importance in the very comments that they are leaving).

But even a smartass BALLER like myself was pretty shocked to come across the following information on our fave blog STFU Parents: there are actually BREEDERS out there who expect people to go through all the necessary steps of "child proofing" their home, before they will come over and grace it with the presence of their bebes.

Who Gives A Shit: Help Me, Help You

Because I have an eighteen-stop completely local commute from South Slope to my nine to five in the mornings, I wake up like, twenty minutes before I have to leave, drag my ass up to the F train in a half-conscious stupor (but immaculately put together, of course), and then spend the next forty-five minutes staring into space (which explains why I’ve been on page four of Crime and Punishment for the last two weeks).

Staring into space often turns into me inventorying everything that everyone is reading, thus assuming I know everything about their lives solely based on their book selection.  Yes, I assume everyone with a Kindle is reading erotica.  Especially you.

But over the last week, I’ve noticed a disproportionate number of self-help books, including shit like How To Find Your Inner Goddess, How To Make Money With Your Ass Still on the Couch, You Will Lose Weight Just By Reading This, etc

I want my trashy romance novel readers back…so I can read over their shoulders.  I’ve already found my inner goddess, dammit.

Anyone else notice this self-help phenomenon recently? [ed note: And follow-up: do you think any of that shit actually work?]
