Third Time’s A Charm
Height: 5’ 11"

For Inna, the jump into modeling came late in life, when she was 34 years old. She knows that she’s up against tough odds, but she’s just looking to have some fun and even make some money.
She has been told she has the right look for the runway. When not modeling, she works as a clinical aesthetician.
“I always wanted to try,” she said. “Everywhere I go I always hear, ‘Are you a model,’ or ‘you should be a model.’”
She’s tried to get her foot in the modeling door twice and it hasn’t worked out. She’s hoping the third time’s the charm.
“I’m not taking it too seriously,” she said. “It’s not like I’m building a career.”
She loves heading to the Queens Botanical Garden with her daughter and enjoying the serenity it offers. It’s where she lives.
A native of Brooklyn’s Brighton Beach (we’ll forgive her for that), Inna has lived in Flushing for the last five years.
“It’s a big difference living in Queens,” she said. “There’s more air; it’s just bigger to me.”
Inna’s not into the club scene like her fellow models. She’s a little too sophisticated for that.
“I’m not 19 years old, I’m not really a nightclub person,” she said. “Sometimes I love to go to a club and relax, but mostly I spend my free time playing tennis. I also like nature; I love to just take a walk outside.”
That’s Not Nothing!
|QC Prez Muyskens & QC grad Seinfeld.
Seinfeld announced that he was donating all the proceeds of the last three shows in his New York tour – including last month’s performance at Queens College – to local nonprofits to help with relief from the storm.
The donation was announced by Queens Beep Helen Marshall, along with donations from businesses including JetBlue, Key Food, Staples, Bumble Bee Tuna and others.
Perhaps if the character he played on his TV show did something similar, he wouldn’t have ended up behind bars for not being a nice person in the “Seinfeld” series finale…
A Home For Rocky
Mr. Rocky Books at home.
Mr. Rocky Books is just one of many Queens residents who turned to a library for shelter after the storm. The Mobile Library, parked in the Rockaways, was a haven for many without heat or power in their homes. Queens Library at Far Rockaway was open to provide emergency supplies to the community, and information for applying for grants and resources.
As for the future of the sneaky raccoon, he is temporarily snug in the library’s atrium. It is a glass “donut hole” with a small garden in the middle of the library building.
Mr. Rocky Books is indeed a wild animal, so the library assumes that once the weather is more to his preference he will shuffle along. “For now, though, everyone is happy to have him as a guest,” library spokeswoman Joanne King said.
The video's setup is simple enough. It is supposed to show the duo performing as waves flood over Rockaway Beach. Sandy had other plans though. Most of the song features the drummer repeatedly running after parts of his drum set as flooding washes it away. Throw in some reverse film and shaky cameras and voila! You have got a music video.
These two epitomize the phrase “Don’t try this at home.”
After waiting hours in line and inching your way to the pump, Queens’ drivers can now take solace in a new ODD-EVEN license plate system. Despite waiting more than a week after Sandy, Mayor Bloomberg finally announced the implementation of rationing fuel last Thursday. The news had many locals wondering why this was not done sooner. Perhaps he did not have to wait in the long lines like we at QConf did.
Bye Bye, Bay-by
Though we still have Flushing Bay, there is no more Bay in Flushing.
The Mets and their maligned outfielder Jason Bay agreed to part ways, making Bay a free agent. Bay will receive all of the $21 million still owed to him. In three years with the Mets, the injury-plagued Bay never hit more than 12 home runs in any one Mets season. The year before he joined the Mets, he hit 36 home runs for the Boston Red Sox.
Bay watch, thankfully, is cancelled.
