Flick Chicks

You may have already read this today, since it has been passed around the web quite a few times. If you have not, you cannot miss Emmy-nominated Mindy Kaling's take on women's stereotypes in Hollywood in this New Yorker's article.

My favourite quote is from the Woman Who Is Obsessed with Her Career:
"Since when does holding a job necessitate that a woman pull her hair back in a severe, tight bun? Do screenwriters think that loose hair makes it hard to concentrate?"
She also has a book coming out. I checked it out on Amazon and what I found most inspiring was her bio:
MINDY KALING is an Emmy-nominated writer and actress on NBC’s The Office. You can find her on Twitter (@mindykaling), or at her desk pretending to be writing a screenplay but actually online shopping with a memorized credit card number. She resides in Los Angeles. Her billing zip code is 90067.
OMG, this could be me sometimes.
