The Windsor Terrace Eleven

Smartmom doesn't like all of the kids of the block. Some of the kids are mean. Some of the kids are way too funky for Smartmom. Smartmom used to be funky, but one day, she misplaced her funk on the way to the co-op. Icky bets Smartmom's funk is on display at the Old Stone House.



Let's face it, "If it's too loud, you're too old." Or maybe in this case, "if it's too funky, you're too clunky." Here then, dear readers, is a list of the Brooklyn Blogs (quite eminent in my estimation), that did not make The Baroness' list of "The Park Slope 100."

Happy holidays, my stalwart Brooklyn blogging compatriots. You do the community a great service by continuing to chronicle our neighborhoods in your own words, through your own eyes, calling 'em like you see 'em. I take great pride in being in your company.

(I guess this means I've broken my promise to "no longer make fun of third-person columns bejeweled with cutsey-poo misnomers." Ah, well. All in the name of community-mided entertainment.)

who's smartmom?
The fact that you don't know who SM is touches me. There *is* hope for us all! I hesitate to mention it, but SM is a columnist for the Brooklyn Paper, who's column is actually named "Smartmom," and really does write in cutseypie third person. (Previous entires more-than-hint to why I have a good time making fun.) She also is the self-appointed Countess of Park Slope, publishing a the-blog-which-shall-not-be-mentioned. (I'm sure you could find it by Googling.)

Re: Your Blog

I keep coming back to this blog for a reason.
It's fresh.
It's not an advertisement.
It's the anti-Smartmom
[Though not as devastating than the "DumbWhore" parody of last year ... ]
