Needless to say, (although I’m going to say it anyway) I’m a big fan of Mindy Kaling. I find her hilarious and so freakishly relatable that I think in a past life we were bff’s. You know how you could listen to a musician, and you just feel that every lyric in this song you’re obsessed with is written specifically for you? Like this musician knows your secrets, passions, faults and flaws, you are being spoken to through every lyric… Well that’s not quite how it is with Mindy Kaling, (because that’s hella creepy) but close. I read articles, her book, interviews, and I just think sometimes “Ohmagad, that has totally happened to me,” or “[laughing out loud] I would’ve totally done the same thing.”
I’m not ashamed in saying that If I could I choose to be best friends with anyone, it would be Mindy Kaling. And not in a weird, super-fan, celebrity-stalker way, but like if we were to meet casually at a party, we would totally hit it off and become buddies. I feel we share a similar awkward sense of humor mixed in with the right amount of intelligence and superficiality.
Case in point, in an interview with Howard Stern, she mentioned, “for every nine hours that I’m “writing,” only one hour of it is productive time.” Since she’s a comedian, I’m not sure how much of that statement is even fact, but that statement, even in exaggerated form hits close to home. For real though, my last post was when.? over a month ago? Wasn’t this supposed to be a weekly blog? I will seriously sit down at my laptop ready to excrete some word juice, but I always convince myself to read any interesting article on Yahoo first, then, Crap! Did my mortgage payment go through?…Better check it. I need new moccasins, Target has them, I’ll just order them real quick. … 2 hours later, I’m nursing my 4th cup of coffee thinking about how my husband and I don’t have a good celebrity mash-up nickname, like Kimye. (For the record, I don’t like Kimye, but it is a good celebrity nickname. No arguing that.)
