I Heart Mindy Kaling

I Heart Mindy Kaling I'd always suspected Mindy Kaling was the tits. Her portrayal of awesome-town valley girl Kelly Kapoor on The Office is waaay up my alley and down my street, as the saying goes. Who could fail to see the genius of her exhortation, "Fashion show at lunch!"?? Only an idiot. My love for Kaling was deepened when I was introduced to her personal blog, Things I've Bought That I Love, which reveals her to be the best kind of girlie girl -- the kind who's unapologetic about liking pretty things but also funny and smart enough to justify her taste with explanations other than "yay, pink!" (Incidentally, I know you've been busy with your real job, Minders, but please update that shiz! For me?)

So when my friend sent me the link to an article she wrote for MSN today, I all but plotzed. I metaphorically peed my pajamas, even! (Read the thing or you won't get the reference). If you insist on not reading it, the article was essentially a short but thoughtful treatise on the things she likes and dislikes about living the cohabitation-less life. But like much of what she writes, she took a subject that in other hands could've been twee or stupid and infused it with humor and profundity. So basically, yeah. Mindy for president [Editor's Note: I agree with this. And not only because we share the soul-crushing humiliation of being named Mindy. -- Mindy]. That is all.
