The Office’s Mindy Kaling has a brand new blog! — The Concerns of Mindy Kaling.
Mindy talks about fashion, food, and other cool stuff with her signature wit and charm.
Today’s post is a poignant remembrance of Steve Jobs: “If you’re like me, when you heard about the passing of Steve Jobs, you had a panicked moment where all you could think about was how much more Mr. Jobs had to give the world, and how sad you were to be robbed of the fruits of those years.”
In 2004, when the producer Greg Daniels was gearing up to adapt “The Office” from the BBC show of the same name — in mock-documentary style, both versions chronicle the lives of unglamorous employees of a paper company — he hired Kaling as a writer-performer, after reading a spec script she wrote. “She’s very original,” he said. “If anything feels phony or lazy or passé, she’ll pounce on it.”
