Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?–Mindy Kaling

Mindy Kaling is my spirit animal. She’s my Patronus. And that voice that sits at the side of my brain like a peanut gallery.

She’s the person that makes me stand up for myself, say what I’m thinking, and generally acts as the beacon for being the weirdo that I am. She stands alongside Felicia Day like two lighthouses calling out to the Sea of Strange, beckoning my little tugboat safely to shore.

If you ever feel down, or like the world just doesn’t get you, you don’t have worry.

She’s got you.

She has all the same worries and concerns that we do. Hell, she’s just like me in that she’s made a beautiful writing space, and then immediately goes and lays down in her bed to do so.

I’m so glad that people like Mindy, and Felicia, and Amanda Palmer, are in the world and outspoken and present for all the people who have felt like they never fit in, or were left behind, or that what they want to do with their lives seemed too out there to others.

Reading Mindy’s book was like being embraced with a word hug when I really needed it.
Constant vigilance!

Black Wolf Blogger Award

Out of the blue I’ve been nominated for the ‘Black Wolf Blogger Award’ from a fellow blogger. Now, I don’t usually pay attention to things, so I’m not 100% sure what this is about, I’m assuming it’s to get other people to read your favourite under the radar the blogs. Help spread the word, and general community of writers.

Either way, I’m tickled pink that someone thought that my tiny egocentric blog was worth telling other humans about.

To Say a Little Word…

Here’s Kolya:

“Talent must be a fanatical mistress. She’s beautiful; when you’re with her, people watch you, they notice. But she bangs on your door at odd hours, and she disappears for long stretches, and she has no patience for the rest of your existence; your wife, your children, your friends. She is the most thrilling evening of your week, but some day she will leave you for good. One night, after she’s been gone for years, you will see her on the arm of a younger man, and she will pretend not to recognize you.”

Kolya talking to Lev, City of Thieves by David Benioff.
