The Book Club - June, "Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)"

Here we are again! Month two of The Book Club. I am so excited that I honestly don't know what or how to do this post. After reading Mindy's Memoir, I feel like I should write a few brief segments to honor the book.

My Various Tweets to Ms. Kaling Throughout June

Someone Also Please Explain One-Night Stands to Me
I, like Mindy,  also have never had a one-night stand and I really don't get the hype either. I think she stated it perfectly when she said, "I barely talk to strangers (a habit that I started as a child and that has served me well through my adulthood). So the idea of going to a stranger's house at night, or having that stranger over to my house, sounds insanely dangerous." My thoughts as well Mindy.... My thoughts as well. I completely agree what if you are to ever come over to my house, I too need to know your first and last name. I also need to have your phone number and a person whom we both know so you can't disappear forever in case you murder me. Honestly, I'm just glad that the King has saved me from ever having to worry about any of this. EVER.

Married People Will Step It Up
Thanks to Mindy's essay titled, "Married People Need to Step It Up," I am now aware that there are famous people who do wish for the happily ever after, married with kids and being a soccer mom lifestyle. Mindy, I heard your pleas! I, as a married person, will step it up! The King and I watch every Nicholas Sparks movie together. Also, the King got me hooked on Lost and if either of us watches it without the other, we're dead meat. The King and I regularly fist bump each other like kids in the hood on a regular basis. Mindy, I'm sharing this with you because, one, you asked, and two, because I want you to know it is possible and that you can have it for yourself.

Strict Instructions for My Funeral
Just as Mindy closes her book with her strict instructions for burial and wake, I too have always had this planned out. Here are my strict instructions for my funeral:
1. No black. The only person who can wear red is my sister. Because I said so.
2. Everyone is to receive a piece of Lindt Dark Chocolate (kind of like the free samples at Ghirardelli).
3. Mindy Kaling is to officiate and read my eulogy prepared by my husband, in collaboration with Coldplay.
4. No casseroles of any kind will be served. At All. Seriously. I will haunt you all if it is served.
5. Either bury me next to my husband if he has passed on already, or, if he is still alive, cremate me and have my ashes buried with him.

Just as Mindy used to sing all seven Von Trapp children's parts to "So Long, Farewell" to her parents, I too love long good-byes. With that being said, I will just wrap up, quickly, I might add, why I loved this book. It was hilarious. It was insightful. It helped me get to know a woman that I thought I already knew pretty well. I now know that Mindy is more conservative than I thought. I also know her mom is a gyno. I am also aware that her BF texts pictures of Harry Potter tickets to her as a way of asking her out on a date. Basically, Mindy is my kindred spirit. I love her. I adore her. I want to almost be her. I too want to have a narcissistic folder of pictures of just me and my make-up on my non-existent BlackBerry. I want to be Mindy's Siamese twin.

Anything else I didn't cover?...... Not really. I just, I don't want to say good-bye.

Be sure to write your post and link-up or just leave a comment about what you thought! Can't wait!!! Oh and please vote for the book for The Book Club's July book.


  1. I'm thinkin' I might have to read this!!
    I have my funeral planned out, too. I know how ridiculous that is, but I don't particularly care.

    1. I thin everyone should have it planned out. It is, after all, one of the only times everything is all about you, so you might as well make sure you get EXACTLY what you want lol

  2. Hmmm... I'm totally tempted to read this now! I haven't heard much about it so I haven't picked it up. I read Tina Fey's memoir and was slightly disappointed but Mindy Kaling's sounds way good. Thanks for the suggestion! Just found your blog and I've loved getting to know you better, I'm excited to follow along!
