The World Is Spinning

Ever feel like it’s all too much and there’s a whole bunch of things going on that the things you really want to do and enjoy doing – like blogging – are put on the backburner.
Well that’s what I feel like at the moment. Some of the stuff has been good. Some has been really exciting. Some could mean amazing things for the future and some is just so crap that it makes me rush home, dive under the covers, switch the electric blanket on and ignore the world.

Since I care very much about my readership I won’t bore you with tales of what has been happening the past couple of weeks. What I will fill you in on is all the stuff that has been helping me get through it all.

Mindy Kaling

I recently got Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me (And Other Concerns) as a present from my brother. I love Mindy Kaling, particularly as Kelly Kapoor on The Office.  I’ve always thought there’s a bit of Kelly in every girl. She knows her pop culture, she watches Glee, loves shopping and has real relationship problems. Also bitch is batshit. Mindy has stated that Kelly is an exaggerated version of her. So reading this book was awesome.

Flying Saucers

As a self-confessed fat kid I love my candy. I recently professed my love for flying saucers, a sherbet-filled wafer sweet made by angels but not readily available in SA. Luckily for me I have really nice co-workers, particularly ones who don’t mind bringing back presents from overseas. This is me with 500 flying saucers. Cut to a few days after the picture and that container is empty. For reals. I would like to say that I shared the majority of them but I didn’t.

Parks and Recreation

I’ve been catching up on my stories and I have to say Parks and Recreation is definitely one of my all-time favourite shows. I love Lesley Knope played by Amy Poehler. She is adorable, funny and events things like “Galentine’s Day” for female friends to celebrate their love. Also she is a big dork which makes the rest of us dorks feel awesome.
