totally off topic but this is my blog for right now so i’m going to use it how i want to….
reading yet another Mindy Kaling interview / article and ran across this quote from her that i just loved:
“My relationship with my mom is really the single most profound relationship that I’ve ever had in my life,” she tells me. “By the way, it seems like I’m … I’m just blowing my nose. It’s not because I’m sad.” She has allergies and a cold, she promises. But her voice breaks when she starts talking about how she sat down with a pen and paper and asked her mother to give her all the advice she could possibly give her before she died, and Kaling realized she’d never be able to ask her mother for advice again. “I said to her, ‘Mom, I’m going to be so lonely without you.’” She’s crying now but keeps going. “And she just said, ‘You have to be your own best friend. If you always remember that, you will always have someone there with you.’”
didn’t know she just lost her mom. so so sad. i love Mindy even more now.
and though uneven, her upcoming show will not suck.
and the version i used to listen to all the time — Barry Manilow II was a great record.
