Things I've Read That I Love

I think The Office is the greatest thing that's ever happened to America. Fuck our independence. Fuck the Emancipation Proclamation. Fuck Betty Crocker Warm Delights Brownie Bowls. (I'm probably going to be sent to Guantanamo for typing those last three sentences, but I think it was worth it to make my point).

So when I heard that Mindy Kaling (who writes, produces, and plays Kelly) also writes a fashion blog, I was both threatened and excited. Turns out both instincts were correct, because her blog rocks (yay!). It's like a way funnier version of my blog (bitch).

It's called Things I've Bought That I Love, which is yet another non-pervy title that I wish I'd considered a year ago when Daddy Likey was but a glint in my eye. But oh well, there's no room for jealousy here (I'm kidding, there's lots of room, I moved the couch).

Just go read it and laugh and come back soon, y'all hear?

p.s. Mindy, in my wildest dreams you will read this and send me an email telling me what it was like to work on Crossing Over with John Edward. Never in my life has an IMDB tidbit so piqued my interest.

I just discovered your blog recently and spent the past week at work reading your archives.

I'm going to force you to be my friend when I move to Portland, btw.

I was trying to explain the name of your blog to someone this weekend. It didn't go well.

i agree with you about the office thing.i live in india and even i know it rocks. it is like the coolest thing ever. i know im sounding like a preppy idiotic female but those are the first words that come to mind when i think about it.when i came to the states i spent 20 bucks on a first season dvd which was like 800indian rupees(two months pocket money)thats how much i love it.
oh and by the way i love your blog.

Man, GK, you really do love the office a lot...And Winona, there's room in my heart (and my blog roll) for the both of you...but yeah, she's hella funny...But yours is still the first blog I check with my morning cafe au lait...Did you get that East Coast Preppy Tea Par-tay video I sent you? My friend goes to school with these fiends:

Now, Jim needs one called "underwear I've bought and loved."

My dear Nona,

I received a letter at work today from a lady named Nona and I so wished it was you. To connect that to this blog post, I work in Cambridge and Mindy is from Cambridge. Yet another reason you need to move here! We could form a tri-fecta of amazing writers, although I'm not funny like ya'll.

I wish Kelly Kapoor/Mindy Kaling was my homegirl. And that Jim was my ADORABLE 6'3 HUNK OF FINE MEAT but that's a whole other story.
Favorite Kelly line ever: "Fashion show, fashion show, fashion show at lunch!"
