Hello friends, sorry for the mini-absence. I am struggling right now, hence the absence. In an effort to pull myself up I did two things that made me smile. I watched Footloose ( 1984 version) and convinced David that next weekend we would learn a choreographed dance together. No, I did not learn anything from the dance/arm/cabinet incident. Secondly, I re-listened to Mindy Kaling’s book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? Ok. I dare you to read this book and not come away from it wanting to be Mindy’s best friend. She is so warm and funny. The book is a collections of essays and reflections on really everything. She talks about getting her dream job, not peaking in high school, the rules of friendship, love, being a daughter, and her healthy body image. I seriously want to meet her and for her to like me. She sounds awesome.
She might also be the only other person who appreciates and sobs to Joni Mitchell the way I do. I absolutely loved it, and yes, I listened to it. I don’t love audiobooks as a rule, but if it is read by the author, and if that author can act I will listen to it. That is the best way to experience Bossypants, and although I have read every David Sedaris book (even Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk), I am re-listening to them now. I like to hear things emphasized just as they should be.
