Step 4: Take a break from all the steps



One of my favourite TV shows is Parks and Recreation. I like to think I’m a little like Leslie Knope at times – positive, excitable, enthusiastic…  One of my favourite things she says are the weird “Anne, you…” expressions. So what did I do? I watched the whole series and wrote down every “Anne, you”.  I looked online for such a list, found none and promised myself that if I ever had a blog, this would most definately be an entry.

If you’re not currently, or likely to ever become a Parks and Rec fan, please skip this week’s blog post.

“Anne you…

…coy bastard

…devious bastard

…beautiful rule breaking moth

…beautiful spinster

…beautiful tropical fish

…beautiful, naïve, sophisticated newborn baby

…tricky bastard

 …beautiful, talented, brilliant, powerful musk ox.

…(ringer Chris Traeger) my fallopian princess.

…cunning, pliable, chestnut haired sunfish

…poetic, noble land mermaid”

…tricky minx

…perfect sunflower

Thanks Leslie Knope 🙂


Update – Monday, May 2, 2016

I rewatched the series and realized that I hadn’t added Leslie’s final names for Ann from the last episode:

…rainbow infused space unicorn

…beautiful sassy manaquin come-to-life

…opalescent tree shark

  1. I LOVE this post…well, I love all these posts. But this one especially. Did you watch the series finale? If you have yet to, you must.

    And I would wholeheartedly agree that you are my real life Leslie Knope.

    1. THE HONEST TRUTH IS THAT I DIDN”T KNOW SEASON 7 WAS UNDERWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now I’m going to be watching that for the next 24 hours. I’ll report back shortly on my thoughts on the finale. I will probably love it, because I love Leslie Knope and also Amy Poehler. My book club is reading her book in the next couple months.

      Also, thanks for your nice comments about my blog 🙂 I am so complimented by your words!!! 🙂 Especially considering you’re sort of my role model vis a vis keeping in touch with friends and family after moving around the world 🙂 Your guys’ video blogs are amazing!
