I’m really into talented women and I feel like I should be hanging out with them. I’m speaking specifically about Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Also Mindy Kaling and Lena Dunham. Funny, talented female writers and comedians are my cup of organic tea and I’m obsessed.
I want to be the fly on the wall as they bang away on their keyboards and write their shows and books. I know watching someone write sounds boring but that’s the thing – it only sounds boring. In reality it would be a lot of fun to watch. This is what I imagine it would be like:
Girl sits at desk. Girl stares at blank screen. Girl writes sentence. Girl deletes sentence. Girl goes to kitchen. Girl has brilliant thought on way to kitchen. Girl runs back to computer. Girl writes brilliant thought even though she forgot half of it. Girl continues to write. Girl deletes half of what she has written. Girl takes break. Girl wonders if it’s okay to take break only ten minutes after starting. Girl stuffs face with Trader Joe’s gluten free chocolate brownies to fuel creativity. Girl repeats for ten hours straight.
Okay, FINE. That’s how I do it but that’s why I want to see how they do it. Either way, it’s a good time. And when the writing is done, the awards shows begin and it’s time to look pretty.
Look at the beautiful Mindy and her honest hips. She writes, directs and stars in her own show which I think is as fabulous as she looks.
You won’t believe it but her and I have a lot in common. Mainly we are both children of immigrant parents who had great expectations for their offspring. She is Indian and her parents expected her to be a doctor. I am Russian and my parents also wished I would become a doctor, lawyer or anything that would make them popular amongst their friends. Unfortunately neither set of parents wished hard enough.
Mindy went on to play a doctor and I visit many doctors. We would have a lot to discuss if we were to hang out. Ours is a friendship that would just make sense.
Lena Dunham and I have a lot more in common. Or maybe Hannah Horvath and I have a lot more in common. Lena is a writer playing a writer with angst issues. Been there, am there. Love her even though she chooses to dress in a way that will start conversations about beauty and I’m like, COME ON LENA. Look cute for me, just this one time.
But I love these chicks regardless of what they wear. Dresses come and go but their brilliance is forever.
On that note, I hope Tina and Amy host the Golden Globes again because girls rule and boys drool.
