I APPLAUD it and Endorse it I LOVED this book Mindy is just a funny gal who is pretty in check with reality I have trouble writing a review for a book I love I feel I just wont do it justice Mindy makes hilarious observations in numerous essays that fill this joy of a book Instead of trying to articulate what this is and what I find funny I thought I would grab some random uotes as a recommendation UOTES I m the kind of person who would rather get my hopes up really high and watch them get dashed to pieces rather than wisely keep my expectations at bay and hope they are exceeded This uality has made me a needy and theatrical friend but has given me a spectacularly dramatic emotional life After all these years with friends who are five ten or taller I have come to carry myself with the confidence of a tall person It s all in the head It works out The chorus of Jack and Diane is Oh yeah life goes on long after the thrill of living is goneAre you kidding me The thrill of living was high school Come on Mr Cougar Mellancamp Get a life I guess I find Jack and Diane a little disgustingI wish there was a song called Nguyen and Ari a little ditty about a hardworking Vietnamese girl who helps her parents with the franchised Holiday Inn they run and does homework in the lobby and Ari a hardworking Jewish boy who does volunteer work at his grandmother s old age home and they meet after school at the Princeton Review They help each other study for the SATs and different AP courses and then after months of studying and mountains of flashcards they kiss chastely upon hearing the news that they both got into their top college choices They say the best revenge is living well I say it s acid in the face who will love them now There is no sunrise so beautiful that it is worth waking me up to see it I realize now I might write out her whole book but she is awesome and this book is soooo much funSo final thoughts YEP

Mindy Kaling ´ 3 characters

Ndy 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. I made the mistake of thinking I would read only one essay of this book before going to bed I stayed up till 3am to finish the whole thing in one sitting It s been so long since this has happened especially going into it not even expecting to finish one essay But Kaling has one of the most conversational delightful and funniest voices in writing It s nearly impossible to put down Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me This book was simply fun and I unexpectedly learned a lot about various topics such as female friendships the essay about Mindy befriending Mavis was one of my favorites health insurance how much Kaling loves it The Office how Rainn Wilson s so horrible Irish exits and a healthy dose of unfair situations that now seem funny in retrospect unfair situations that I still don t think are funny Hollywood heartache and my childhood And since we re already on topic Mindy Kaling writing about her childhood and coming of age was one of the funniest and relatable things I ve read as of late Which is why the title essay was one my favorites Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me Or How I Made My First Real Friend Reason 1 why Mavis is one the kindest souls Mavis said uietly If you want to go with them I totally get it There was something about the unexpectedly kind way she said that that made me happy to be with her and not them For some reason I immediately thought about how my parents had always been especially fond of Mavis and here was this moment when I understood exactly why she was a good person It felt so good to realize how smart my parents had been all along Are you kidding me I said We have to go home and film this sketch When Mindy first introduced her childhood friend in this book I was worried that Mavis would only appear this one time but I m glad they became good friends There was just Mavis and me but it never seemed lonely because we never stopped talking One friend with whom you have a lot in common is better than three with whom you struggle to find things to talk about We never needed best friend gear because I guess with real friends you don t have to make it official It just is truth I really loved their friendship and was even genuinely upset when they lost contact in college Even though Mavis was my secret friend she is the only one I hope I see again She s the only one I wonder about I hope she wonders about me too But thankfully Kaling mentioned here that they saw one another again in 2002 Day Jobs I laughed out loud multiple times during this but particularly when she talked about babysitting for some rich parents and eating a lot of their kid friendly food I did it so much that it became a problem One evening after her bath Haley pulled me aside wracked with guilt Mommy wanted to know who ate all the turtle shaped bagel pizzas and I knew it was you but I lied and said it was me She burst into tears I hugged her and told her You can never tell her the truth And then I let her stay up an extra hour watching Lizzie McGuire Bribes and boy bands That s all you need to be a babysitter All About The Office This was the essay I d been waiting for And I was not disappointed especially when she made an actual list of what Kelly and her have in common Things Kelly and I Would Both Do Choreograph and star in a music video Fake our own deaths to catch a serial killer Cry at work occasionally Memorize our credit card numbers to shop online with ease Drive with our parking brake on Go to goopcom every day Spend hours following a difficult recipe hate the way it tastes and throw it out to go to McDonald s Get upset if we re not invited to a party Go on trendy and slightly dangerous diets Hold a royal wedding viewing party Also her fights with Greg Daniels had me cackling What do we fight about I wish I could say they were big smart philosophical issues about writing or comedy but sometimes they re as small as If we do that cold open where Kevin dumps a tureen of chili on himself I will uit this show We did that cold open by the way and it was a hit and I m still working at the show I can get a little theatrical That s one of my favorite Office openings I still can t believe she was against itAlso this STEVE CARELL IS NICE BUT IT IS SCARYIt has been said many times but it is true Steve Carell is a very nice guy His niceness manifests itself mostly in the fact that he never complains You could screw up a handful of takes outside in 104 degree smog choked Panorama City heat and Steve Carell s final words before collapsing of heat stroke would be a friendly and hopeful Hey you think you have that shot yet I ve always found Steve gentlemanly and private like a Jane Austen character I actually love this Franchises I Would Like to Reboot This essay oh man it was 1am when I started it and I thought and still think that Kaling might actually be psychic Because this is practically the script for Ghostbusters that came out in 2016 GHOSTBUSTERSI always wanted the reboot of Ghostbusters to be four girl ghostbusters Like four normal plucky women living in New York City searching for Mr Right and trying to find jobs but who also bust ghosts I m not an idiot though I know the demographic for Ghostbusters is teenage boys and I know they would kill themselves if two ghostbusters had a makeover at Sephora I just have always wanted to see a cool girl having her first kiss with a guy she s had a crush on and then have to excuse herself to go trap the pissed off ghosts of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire or something In my imagination I am of course one of the ghostbusters with the likes of say Emily Blunt Taraji Henson and Natalie Portman Even if I m not the ringleader I m definitely the one who gets to say I ain t afraid a no ghost At least the first time illuminaticonfirmed How I Write Last but obviously not least is this short but hilariously relatable piece on Kaling s writing process and being productive The Internet also makes it extraordinarily difficult for me to focus One small break to look up exactly how almond milk is made and four hours later I m reading about the Donner Party and texting all my friends DID YOU GUYS KNOW ABOUT THE DONNER PARTY AND HOW MESSED UP THAT WAS TEXT ME BACK SO WE CAN TALK ABOUT IT This really reminded me of Aziz Ansari s stand up about this exact subject One of the funniest comedic bits I ve rewatched about ten times or But real talk I was really enjoying my time spent reading this book Kaling had me laughing out loud in the middle of night which I will always appreciate But as much as I want to I can t ignore the fact that I despised it when this book reached a part called THE BEST DISTRACTION IN THE WORLD ROMANCE AND GUYS I was not into it at all I have little to no interest in someone dictating for nearly 50 pages what guys especially Jewish guys I nearly put the book down after that or even married people should or shouldn t do So I started skimming the essays after I reached that part I also found that the following parts had lost almost all of Kaling s humor that I found so damn charming in the first part I mean I stayed up till 3am for it So in order to recover my love I ll just try to forget that those parts were included in this book and focus instead on all that I loved and mentioned beforehand in my review And so I m than willing to pick up her next book Why Not MeNote I m an Affiliate If
