Namely because I feel like I should be friends with any and all slightly spastic people that I think I know because they’re famous. I don’t know them. They’re famous. I just know what other people say about them or their willing to admit about themselves.
Doesn’t stop me from believing I’m one tweet away from being BFFs with The Bloggess.
But that’s not the point right now, because I know that Ms. Kaling and I were meant to be bros. Why, you ask? Because of one line in her book “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?” And probably not the one you think.
While writing about being popular in college, she mentions that there isn’t a lot to do in rural New Hampshire. Which, while true, we don’t like to advertise. We’re trying to convince people we’re cool here Kaling, not wave a giant sign around that says “we’re desperate for people to hang out with us.”
Obviously, I was a bit miffed at this point, and was crossing her off my list of celebrities to stalk on Twitter by putting her on my private list “Try to befriend.”*
Then she lists the things to do that are more popular than going to see a play. One of those things is going to Montreal to see strippers.
Mindy Kaling just mentioned what is, in fact, a plot point in Min. And when you think about it, Min is just a shorter version of Mindy. AND! Min and Mindy both have affluent parents. Sure Mindy doesn’t have a drinking problem and Min isn’t Indian … but still …
Our friendship was written in the stars.
So, Ms. Kaling, when you read this and discover that we’re basically sister souls, feel free to just add me as a friend on Facebook or follow me on Twitter or whatever. I promise I’m super chill to talk to.**
*this is an actual list.
**that is a total lie. I’m actually a complete spaz.
Stay tuned for more Min information, including a release date. Just as soon as I figure out how to remove that picture of a donkey I do not own the rights to that I thought it would be funny to insert.
Never do that.
