A Funny Story

I'm just finishing up Mindy Kaling's book that I finally got from the library (I was the thirtieth person on the waiting list so I was anticipating reading it in 2014). This book is pure gold. She comes across as such a nice, happy person who happens to be funny and intelligent. It's been a relaxing read, which I definitely need at the end of the day, but it's not some chick lit book where you can feel your brain cells shriveling up while reading it. Also she loves her parents and talks about how great they are, which I love. Basically she is my Oprah, if she told me to read a book I would go out to the bookstore and buy it, now that is power.
Here's one of my favorite passages:
A note about me: I do not think stress is a legitimate topic of conversation, in public anyway. No one ever wants to hear how stressed out anyone else is, because most of the time everyone is stressed out. Going on and on in detail about how stressed out I am isn't conversation. It'll never lead anywhere. No one is going to say, "Wow, Mindy, you really have it especially bad. I have heard some stories of stress, but this one just takes the cake."
This was a good-natured reminder to me to keep my stress thoughts to myself.

Ooh, I'm excited to read it! I just requested it and I'm the 11th on the list and there are four copies...we'll see how long that takes.
