The become best friends with Mindy project

I really hope all of you are watching The Mindy Project on Monday nights (Monday is the best night for TV. There's Up All Night, Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23, The Mindy Project and Parks and Recreation all in a row). It's hilarious and I highly recommend it. If you're into The Office, 30 Rock or any of the shows listed above you will love it.

Unfortunately we don't have the DVD of The Mindy Project in the library yet as it's still on TV in NZ. (9.30 Monday Nights, channel Four) but we do have Mindy Kaling's book Is everyone hanging out without me? (and other concerns).

"Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”

Perhaps you want to know what Mindy thinks makes a great best friend (someone who will fill your prescription in the middle of the night), or what makes a great guy (one who is aware of all elderly people in any room at any time and acts accordingly), or what is the perfect amount of fame (so famous you can never get convicted of murder in a court of law), or how to maintain a trim figure (you will not find that information in these pages). If so, you’ve come to the right book, mostly!

In Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, Mindy invites readers on a tour of her life and her unscientific observations on romance, friendship, and Hollywood, with several conveniently placed stopping points for you to run errands and make phone calls. Mindy Kaling really is just a Girl Next Door—not so much literally anywhere in the continental United States, but definitely if you live in India or Sri Lanka" (from Goodreads)

I really enjoyed this book so if you're after a bit of a laugh and a light read request it today!

P.s. Happy birthday Harry Potter and JK Rowling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
P.p.s Happy birthday Dad.
