So . . what’s on my mind is a lot less serious than the stuff that has been the last couple days. Today I’ve been thinking about Dr. Mindy Lahiri from the Mindy Project (Mindy Kaling in real life). For those who have yet to watch the Mindy Project – – you are being robbed of the greatest show to hit TV screens since Friends (F.Y.I – – I’m a HUGE Friends fangirl 🙂 ). Comparing something to Friends is not something I take lightly so this serves as an indication of just how brilliant this show actually is ;).
I find Mindy as a character to not only be delightful and so funny, but also a character real women can actually relate to. I called this post “Dr. Mindy Lahiri – – my friend” because it feels like she really could be someone I could picture myself sitting with in a coffee shop, gossiping about something or other. She jokes about overeating, romance, being chubby, hating working out – – all the usual women struggles that I feel some celebs try pretend aren’t actually struggles. It’s such a different, refreshing show. It’s great to see someone who women can relate to everywere. While watching The Mindy Project I will literally laugh out loud at the very least twice. There are too many wise cracks, and amongst these you get some pretty wise words too. I feel that Mindy Kaling is absolutely someone that real women can look up to 🙂 . Mindy, obviously, is the star of the show but the rest of the cast in the show are pretty amazing too. Mindy Kaling has a book too called “Is everyone hanging out without me?”. Also absolutely brilliant and it really made me laugh! The character she plays in the Mindy Project is based on how she is in real life and I simply love it. Mindy never ceases to make my day 🙂 To demonstrate my point, I will include a few quotes from The Mindy Project.
A women’s prison you guys? Come on, if I wanted to get shanked, I’d just shave my legs drunk again.
– Mindy Lahiri
Jeremy: The key, Mindy, is to find a man who you are attracted to, but don’t respect and can’t see a future with. [she was seeking advice about one nigh stands]
Mindy: Draco Malfoy.
Jeremy: Someone not fictitious
Maybe I won’t get married, ya know? Maybe I’ll do one of those ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ things. I don’t wanna pray. Forget it. I’ll die alone.
So that is all I have to say today – – watch The Mindy Project – – it’ll truly enrich your life and give you many laughs! 😉
