To preface: I am a very fortunate person. I have by any account a good life. I have a roof over my head and a husband who loves me. So much so he purchased me a new “smartphone” recently. He knows me well enough to know NOT to tell me how to use it. Thus when I noted I was getting WiFi notifications he offered to help me dismantled that bit of “intelligence”. I refused. Because the WiFi networks hereabouts are so darned interesting.
Once I showed him this corker which hails from Banker Street and Meserole Avenue, he understood.
The Grey Catsby can be found in Greenpoint. But as a rule, male genitalia/innuendo seems to be quite popular.
I cannot tell a lie: these made me erupt into peals of adolescent laughter.
Whereas this one struck me as being wishful thinking. Let’s face facts…
The I.T. and Internet world are ostensibly a man’s one— and if Dagobah exists it probably inhabits some hitherto undiscovered nook or cranny of Greenpoint. If I had to hazard a guess, I’d say the Nassau Avenue stop of the Crosstown Local. It’s been rather “ripe” lately.
But last— and hardly least— something for all you uber-geeks out there…
From (where else) Greenpoint!
From Metropolitan Avenue.

Admit it, it made you chuckle. I certainly did. (Taken June 9, 2013.)

A selection of work I saw while knocking around yesterday. I am certain those who live on or near Bedford Avenue have become all too familiar with the above “Draw Something” marketing campaign. Not surprisingly, this has been exploited primarily in an off-color manner by the population. However, as you can see with the above depicted hairy pussy someone went above and beyond the call. Yup, “Gato de la Cuidad” came home with yours truly…

A number of folks have brought this to my attention. But I am rolling with this one as I found the “copy” the most provocative:
Hi, Heather…any chance you can do a quick thing on this on your site? Feel free to editorialize as much as you wish, but it would be nice to let people know about it. That way they can come and personally rip on the new OSA director if they wish.
PDF attached. Here is the copy I sent out along with it:
Friends and Neighbors,
The OSA Community Committee is pleased to announce the next Public Forum will be taking place on Wednesday June 12, 2013 at The Warsaw in Greenpoint at 7pm.
The Public Forum is your chance as community members to bring your ideas for maintaining, improving and celebrating our public parks in North Brooklyn both with your fellow North Brooklynites and with OSA leadership. Join your neighbors in discussing the state of your parks and generating priorities for the Parks Department and OSA staff.
This year you have a unique opportunity to meet and hear from the Executive Director of OSA, Ed Janoff. Ed will present his plan for addressing the ideas the community submitted at the last Public Forum as well as take your questions.
We hope to see you there!
