This week I decided to knock a non-fiction humor book off my list that I've been wanting to read for a long time.
I am a huge fan of The Office and thought Mindy Kaling did an amazing job playing her character Kelly throughout the show. I picked up this book hoping to read a few inside stories about the office and enjoy Mindy's humor. There weren't a ton of stories about The Office, a good portion of the book was about her childhood. Mindy had parents with serious professions and was brought up in a strict but loving household. She grew up with only a few friends (but had some great friends along the way) and spent a great deal of time learning all about humor.
The stories about her career were my favorite part of the novel. I loved hearing about Steve Carell, Rain Wilson and the other members of The Office crew. I didn't realize that Mindy was mostly a writer on The Office but she spoke quite a bit about it. Of course everything Mindy wrote was in humor and there were times I found myself laughing out loud at what she had written. I would definitely recommend this book if you're looking for a quick, easy read that will give you a couple of laughs!
I also want to mention that I've been spending my lunch breaks at work reading outside! Yes, you read that right! It is finally warm enough to be outside.
Sitting in my car during lunch with the windows open drinking my coffee is also something that is making me giddy lately!
Yesterday it was so beautiful that I took a walk during my lunch break to the river nearby...
I saw a little turtle sunbathing on a piece of trash. It was sad, but it was nice to see him enjoying the sun nevertheless!
Now tonight I have big plans!
Yes, I am cuddling with Roxy and watching a Law and Order SVU marathon. Big plans =)
Enjoy your Friday tomorrow everyone!
