Title: Back That Thing Up
Author: persnickety_er
Pairing/Character: Ben/Leslie
Word Count: ~2,500
Rating: MA
Summary: Continuation of their last scene together
Warning: Spoilers up to 501 - Ms. Knope Goes to Washington
Notes: This story is currently untouched by anyone but me. Which I never do. But my beta was taking her time and I got impatient. There may be a second, revised draft posted. Feel free to point and laugh at any glaring errors. Also, this is my first foray into the Parks fandom. I'm excited to be here. Hello, hi, hello. I've noticed some names I'm familiar with, so some of you may remember me as beruco from a few other fandoms, namely the Office.

...weird right?

Anyways, how many of my lj friends are still active? I'm reinstating this thing because my new fandom (PARKS AND REC MOTHERFUCKERS) is very present here.

Fun fact upon my return: You can google "Endometriosis Pain Treatment" all you want, but the best answer is missing. Until now. Are you ready? It's a triple Jameson on ice and a couple of Walgreens-brand Complete Menstrual Relief tablets.

You're welcome.

So I failed at the music meme...and rather than post like 10 or more days worth of songs...I'm just gonna forget it ever existed. K? K. I did, however, find this fun little one-time meme on spooky_xphile 's page. So I'm gonna go ahead and do it.

----------

A - ACCENT:
I have a pretty neutral accent maybe with a bit of mid-southern when I say some words like "hail." I say mid-southern because I'm from Oklahoma. So I don't have any kind of deep south drawl like Georgia or the Carolinas...more like northern Texas/southern Oklahoma...but most people don't know the difference unless they've lived in those places...

B - BREAST SIZE: 38C

C - CHORE YOU HATE: I HATE vacuuming.

D - DAD'S NAME: Terry

E - ESSENTIAL MAKE-UP ITEM: Just one? I guess my Bare Minerals foundation.

F - FAVORITE PERFUME: Right now it's Miss Cherie Dior. I'm a perfume WHORE though.

G - GOLD OR SILVER: Gold.

H - HOMETOWN: Nowata, OK

I - INSOMNIA: Not much anymore.

J - JOB TITLE: Spa Manager

K - KIDS: No thanks. Maybe someday in the far future.

L - LIVING ARRANGEMENTS: Currently with the parents. Will be making a move in the next month to either Tulsa, OK or Kansas City, MO and living by myself without a roommate for the first time ever. Weird. :-\

M - MOM'S BIRTHPLACE: Spearman, TX

N - NUMBER OF APPLES YOU'VE EATEN: Two today. That seems like a lot, I know. But I eat a lot of fruit in the summer.

O - OVERNIGHT HOSPITAL STAYS: None.

P - PHOBIA: Heights, bugs, commitment.

Q - QUEST: To be able to shop at JCrew and Anthropologie without looking at price tags/going straight to Sale.

R - RELIGIOUS AFFILIATION: N/A

S - SIBLINGS: One brother. He's 35.

T - TIME YOU WAKE UP: 7:05am

U - UNNATURAL HAIR COLORS YOU'VE WORN: Pink and blue.

V - VEGETABLE YOU REFUSE TO EAT: Sauerkraut. Though I eat cabbage. So. *shrugs*

W - WORST HABIT: Biting/picking at my cuticles.

X - X-RAYS YOU'VE HAD: Teeth and CT scan of my noggin.

Y - YUMMY FOODS YOU MAKE: I make good guacamole.

Z - ZANY QUIRK: I really like incorporating fandom into my every day life. And I get frustrated when people don't get it. Like when I'm drunk and say, "I want some fucking FRENCH TOAST!" If you just think I want french toast and don't understand I'm quoting a movie? You're dead to me. P.S. Name that movie.

Day 11 - A song from your favorite band Constantinople - The Decemberists

Previous days/songs under here.Collapse )

Interviewed and hired an AMAZING girl today for the evening reception position. And the manager candidate we were waiting to hear back from called and accepted the position. The staff is finally coming together. Which means I finally feel like I'm tying up the loose ends so I can MOVE ON! My interview with the Anthropologie district manager is next Thursday for the Apparel Manager position at a new store opening in Tulsa. Fingers crossed for that one. Trying to keep my mind off the lumbar puncture...which is pretty easy to do for now because:

GAGALOO ON TUESDAY BITCHEZZZ!



Mom's finishing my dress tomorrow and I have to finish my bejeweled sunglasses then I will be set. <3

I don't know if I mentioned that I started training my replacement his week at work...and I'm too lazy to click a few times and check my past few entries. But I don't think she's gonna work out. I don't think it takes a lot to manage a spa. Not that I'm like...saying I don't have skills and talent or anything, but--75% of it is customer service. Faking like the client is the most important thing in your life. Just...smiling and small talk for the 1-2 minutes the the client is under your care before you hand them off to the massage/skincare therapists...

Anyway, that's the part where she's failing miserably. And her phone/email technique is atrocious. What about "be professional and VERY personable" is hard to understand?!

Blah. I'm just pissed I'm going to have to train someone else. I'm ready to be out of there.

Day 2 of 30 Days Music Meme is hard...I have a lot of least favorite songs.

Day 02 - Your least favorite song
Kid Rock feat. Sheryl Crow - Picture

Day 01 - Your favorite song 
Dog Days Are Over - Florence and the Machine

--------------------

I began training my replacement today at work. While I'm happy because this means my time there is coming to an end and I'll be embarking on a new adventure soon...I'm also kind of sad. I love my staff. And the clients. And I'll be sad to leave them in someone else's hands--no matter how capable they may be. :-\ Bittersweet.
