How often I have to remind myself that DJ Roomba is not the actual name for Roombas, it’s just Roomba, and people always look at me strange when I’m like, “Oh you have a DJ Roomba? Does it really work?”
All of the BJ quotes from the article, “And God Created Mindy,” in Elle Magazine (Picture from SAG Awards After Party):
"A friend of mine who doesn’t know Mindy told me that for a year she considered Mindy’s book one of her closest friends,” say fellow Office vet B.J. Novak, Kaling’s ex-boyfriend and current collaborator/best friend. “People really respond to her voice. It’s extremely intelligent without being the least bit pretentious.”
"She’s a gangster," Novak says, "And guys respond to that. This is not a girl who waits by the phone. This is a girl who picks up the phone and calls whoever she wants."
Kaling’s habit of diving headlong into every detail is ingrained (“She has a big me-too-ism in her,” Novak says. “She always wants to know what everyone else is doing and if that’s more fun.”), but it also served as a desperately needed diversion when her mother, a real-life ob-gyn, died of pancreatic cancer on the day that FOX green-lit The Mindy Project.
"We learned most things on The Office that a person can learn in television,” Novak says. “The one thing The Office didn’t teach us is how to lead, how to be a star. Mindy had to find that out for herself.”
Let’s get down to business.
To outbid the huns!
Here I have some figures
and some facts and sums!
It’s the saddest lot you’ve ever bought
but if you bet on this one too
make you a buck
We must be swift as the stock exchanges
With all the force of a great tycoon
With all the strength of a thriving market
Mysterious as the Romney’s revenues!
I’m never gonna get this back
Say good bye to my salary
Boy was I fool in school for cutting STATS
This guy’s got them scared to death
Hope he doesn’t see my assets
Now I really wish I knew how to add!
I wonder how many stranger’s stories we make it into? You know, maybe someone saw you in passing and told their friends about how pretty the girl in the lavender sweater was. Or maybe they overheard you say a joke and repeated it to their friend, confessing that they heard it from some guy at the store.
Marking the 450th Anniversary of William Shakespeare’s Birth
Every year at the end of April, a celebration of the life and works of the great playwright William Shakespeare takes place in the market town of Stratford-upon-Avon, England. Shakespeare was born there in 1564 and cultural celebrations in Stratford’s streets, with entertainers, street performers and traditional Morris dancers, go back hundreds of years.
From his plays to his sonnets, Shakespeare’s extensive works have produced a legacy of characters, ideas, histories and, of course, words—it is thought he contributed more than 2,000 to the English language. His plays are a staple on many school curriculums, and continue to be reinterpreted on stage, rewritten in fiction and retold on screen.
The man himself is still very much a mystery and few details exist about his private life. Shakespeare married Anne Hathaway with whom he bore three children, before relocating to London to pursue his acting and writing career. He died at the age of 52 on April 23, 1616—a date which fell very near to his birthday in the same month (the exact date is unknown).
This year marks the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth and, on Saturday, a special procession will take place in Stratford, ending with celebrants laying flowers on Shakespeare’s grave in the Holy Trinity Church. The world-renowned Royal Shakespeare Company will also host a full program of shows.
