Ever read a great FiPS post and think to yourself, Hot damn. I'm in lurrrve with this writer (see also: I fucking haaaate this writer). Well for the next few months we're going to give you an insight into the writing staff here at FiPS. Contributors were paired together and asked to come up with some burning questions for each other so that you guys can learn a little more about the minds behind this FiPS-tastic blog. Because when it comes down to it, we're fucked in Park Slope JUST LIKE THE REST OF YOU SUCKERS.
So far we've given you Erica & Ursula. Next up: Ben & Jess (spoiler - it involves butt-related sex stuff)!
How did you hear of / Join fips?
JESS: I had just got fired from my bartending job (the day after my birthday!) and my boyfriend and I broke up shortly after; day in and day out I was basically wallowing in self pity at my apartment writing in my journal asking it questions like "when did it all go wrong??" A friend of mine was trying to cheer me up and sent me a link from fips about the honey badger. I thought it was funny and started reading more articles on the site, eventually I made it to the section where you can submit a story to become a contributor. I sent in some thing I had wrote about the one bastard fly in my apartment that never dies and my antics trying to catch him, two months later Erica responded and asked for something park slope based. I chose to write about the goose genocide in prospect park and was then berated by every comment on the piece; I was successfully initiated.
