This vision hails from Brooklyn Bridge Park and comes courtesy of my buddy Bitchcakes. I would like to humbly suggest this gent become the new, uh, face of Coppertone.*

*Interesting fact: Jodie Foster was a Coppertone girl. No kidding.

Word Of The Day: Foamer

Filed under: Advanced Life Forms, Brooklyn 

Per the Urban Dictionary:

A term railroad employees use to describe a railroad enthusiast / railfan and the railfan community at large. Most often used disparagingly. (Engineer to conductor aboard a freight train)

“Man, we got some foamers ahead taking pictures…they need to just get a life and find something to do besides hang around the tracks all day.”

Atlantic Antic Photo Du Jour: Love Will Tear Us Apart

Because nothing screams I am a narcissistic parent like dressing your toddler up as a goth. In front of the Brooklyn Detention Complex, no less.

Keep your mistakes to yourselves, “hip” parents. Laugh about it with your brood over photo albums in 2020. Do not inflict them on your children now. Otherwise they will grow up to be Republicans (or worse yet: Bloomberg supporters).

This is wrong for more reasons than I care to recount.*

Great Moments In Entrepreneurialism: Refer A Friend At Hoyt-Schermerorn!

Today the Mister and I concluded his parent’s visit to our fair city with a sojourn to Atlantic Antic. To this end we took the almighty Crosstown Local to Hoyt Schermerhorn. Immediately upon exiting the station we stumbled upon this.

Mister Heather, being the detail-oriented person is, explained the vagaries New York State’s divorce law for my in law’s edification. Among them:

  1. It is a joint property state, e.g.; all assets will be divided equally. My net worth is zero. This makes for an easy division: zero divided by 2 equals zero.
  2. I will be entitled to alimony.

Amy Vanderbilt might disagree with me on this one but: I suspect the Mister extolling upon how one gets divorced in New York…

  1. blocks away from where we were married
  2. during a family outing

might constitute a breach of etiquette. Or, in my laywoman’s opinion, a colossal party foul. This is not to suggest I didn’t find it amusing: I did. This is in large part why I married the Mister in the first place!*

The previous having been written:

  1. On the one hand: there is a part of me which is thoroughly revolted by this advertisement.
  2. On the other: I really want to see this campaign taken to its logical conclusion. Frequent customer punch cards a la Starbucks.

Miss Heather

*And, well, health insurance.

P.S.: This post goes out to Ma and Pa-in-law. I really enjoyed your visit!

Well, it did fall.

The previous slide show beautifully illustrates the ineptitude of the Department of Buildings (lest I have not made it clear already*) comes courtesy of Lesterhead. With public servants like this, who needs enemies?

You can peruse complaints leading up to this incident including these gems dating from May 1, 2009

*And of course there is my personal favorite: 156 India Street. You were (and are) really on top of that one, Department of Buildings! Hence why the Red Cross was brought in.
