Since my fellow bloggers have been raving about Mindy Kaling’s show (which I haven’t yet watched), I thought I would give her book a try. It was truly hilarious and I found it similar to Tina Fey’s book with the personal stories and insights into her life growing up. A definite recommended good read and I knew I would like it when on page 5 she writes, “I would like to be friends with Beyonce Knowles” because I also would like to be friends with Beyonce and Pink.
I really enjoyed the chapter on Karaoke though – I’ve included a my favorite quote below cause it’s so true and it reminds me of when we had a karaoke machine in our Gilman house that one summer:
“When I pick songs for karaoke, I have 3 concerns; (1) What will this song say about me? (2) How will I sound singing it? and (3) How will it make people feel? The Key is that the third one matters the most, by a factor of a hundred. When most people sing karaoke, they think of themselves as contestants on American Idol, and they sing and perform their hearts out. But I really think people should be thinking of themselves more as temporary DJs for a party. It’s kind of a responsibility.”
