South By Park Slope? [SXPS --> SXSW]

Greg and I left today for South By Southwest (don't even think of robbing us. Our friend is dog sitting for Oliver and we have a Mission Impossible type alarm system in our apartment with laser beams-n-shit).

Anyway.

South By Southwest (SXSW) is an Interactive, Film and Music conference that's held every year down in Austin, TX. We're just going for the interactive part, cause we're geeky like that.

Anyway, shit might be a little slow around here until next Weds.

If you follow me on Twitter, though, shit will NOT likely be slow there. In fact, if you could give a rat's ass about all this technology SXSW BS, you may want to unfollow my ass for a few days.

Anyone else going? (If so, @ me on Twitter to get on this growing list of NYers who will be there).

YOU KNOW YOU WANT IT: Breast Milk Cheese

Some guy is selling his wife's breast milk cheese at his restaurant. His phone is "ringing off the hook" with total fucking morons who want to try this shit. HE HAS THIS BREAST MILK CHEESE PAIRED WITH A RIESLING.

Is this real life?

Cause I'm actually starting to think that all this shit is part of some big marketing ploy engineered by Denise Albert, and Park Slope Parents and all those other annoying Mombies, just to ensure that the "parenting lobby" stays firmly planted in the weekly news frenzy.

Cause otherwise I've got to acknowledge the fact that we live in world where breast milk cheese is considered OK...and that's a hard fucking pill for me to swallow.

[Sidenote: what is the BALLER equivalent of this anyway?? Pâté made with my already ingested morning after pills? Pot brownies? Oh wait...].

Bussaco To Katy Sparks: 'Don't Fuck With Us' [Well, Kinda]

Ok, so they didn't *quite* say that, but they are stepping up to the plate and calling out former chef Katy Sparks as the likely source for the bouncing checks, business is falling off rumor of last week.

Bussaco owner Scott Carney claims that everything is just peaches-n-cream over there, and though they *did* bounce a couple of checks (oopsie!) they paid em off and all's cool. Apparently they have a new chef, Andrew Smith, formerly of Lupa and del Posto, and Carney claims everything is just fine, thank you very much.

Cool or Not Cool: Parenting Your Children L-O-U-D-L-Y

So apparently the NYT's City Blog printed a "Complaint Box" post last week in which the author went AWF on loud-mouthed, smug parents:

"We see them everywhere. And if we’re being honest, we have all had the same frightening and ignoble urge to smash their heads in with a brick. I am speaking about those smug and uber-informative moms and dads who do their parenting in public places — aggressively and at the top of their highly educated lungs."

DAYM, Susan Goldberg...smash their heads in with a brick?! And you ppl think I have anger issues?
