Brooklyn Half Marathon is on Saturday! The start is conveniently located just outside my front door. Waking up at 6:30 for a race that starts at 7:30 seems totally awesome; a week and a half ago I had to get up at 4 for the NJ half—which started at 6:45—in order to drive to the start and worry about parking.
I am also excited about actually running the race. FLATBUSH CLOSED TO TRAFFIC! Finish at Coney Island!
I was at Coney Island last weekend, with my Parents. We stopped into the Coney Island Beach Shop to get my sister a t-shirt with a mermaid on it (it’s kind of her thing), and saw these Occupy Coney Island t-shirts for sale.
I guess you can commodify anything.
Maybe maybe maybe, if we live in a reasonable world, money from these shirts is going to Occupy Sandy Relief, but there were no signs or posters attesting to that. Just t-shirts and flip flops and the requisite Fishs Eddy Brooklyn stuff for sale.

Of course I love this. This is reblog bait for me.
This is rad: someone used a Police Line slab of wood (usually used more like this) to frame this street tree pit on Sterling Place in my neighbourhood.
My 100$ hair cut.
EVERY HAIRCUT EVER. Every time. I always come in for my next one, and my stylist KNOWS. And SCOLDS ME. Oh hair.
I always have this “problem.” This time, I just preemptively cut my bangs BEFORE my haircut. Now they can be the right shortness, and the stylist with tidy them up.
Eff yeah reproductive health!!!
