Mindy Kaling: shopbop.com is my favorite site with the best sales
Mindy Kaling: and no, they don’t pay me to say that
aklarkin: I love her clothes!
Mindy Kaling: her clothes are adorable!
ChillisBannedMe: Your blog is AMAZING….. I actually sent out your holiday list as a link to my family and just said “anything here for these exact reasons” PLEASE keep shopping/writing!!!
Mindy Kaling: Chillis… I totally will. Just for you.
Mindy Kaling: Thank you!!
[Postscript: Mindy’s got an awesome shopping/fashion blog called Things I Bought That I Love.]
Mindy Kaling: Okay, Pam though.
Mindy Kaling: Yes, Pam is hard because unlike almost EVERY other character, she actually is growing and changing
andirr: Speaking of your blog, i just wanted to say thanks for keeping it up and having good taste! I used to be a personal assistant for a celebrity, and i used to get ideas from there for gifts for some of his friends, etc…
kalsop: I saw Samantha Ronson wearing the cardigans you blogged about!
Mindy Kaling: (andirr!! that is so cool! Which celebrity? Robert Pattison? I knew it. I KNEW HE AND I WERE MEANT FOR EACH OTHER!)
Kate: I met him once! Before twilight – so handsome!
Mindy Kaling: Wasn’t it funny how he ALWAYS looks like a vampire, no matter where he is?
EarlyWorm: LOL. he so does!
sorano916: Hey, Mindy! Who was wearing the best/worst at the Oscars, in your opinion?
jinx: Who got the Mindy Kaling gold star at the Oscars?
Mindy Kaling: Oh, Natalie Portman for sure
Mindy Kaling: Tina looked amazing too. I emailed her about it. Hasn’t gotten back to me yet…must be really busy today.
Mindy Kaling: Tina is the perfect example of Cinderella Fashion Genius
Mindy Kaling: She mostly wears navy or black, and then BAM when it counts, at the Oscars, she rocks iridescent silver.
Cal: Who do you think was the worst dressed?
Mindy Kaling: Hmm. Well, I try not to hate on people’s dresses because I get hurt when people are mean to mine…but I wasn’t that into Sophia Loren’s dress
Mindy Kaling: but that’s not like, news to anyone
sorano916: Kelly has been wearing some interesting tops this season. Do you help in the picking things out for her?
Mindy Kaling: I have no say in what Kelly wears, but it’s funny. I look at the brands sometimes and the weird little blouse I’m wearing is like, Nanette Lepore or Marc by Marc Jacobs.
Mindy Kaling: I think it’s because in HD you need the color quality of higher-end garments, as weird as that sounds.
Mindy Kaling: I’m so sorry, I’ve gone totally off topic into fashion
Mindy Kaling: I could talk about clothes all day
Kate: makes sense though
andirr: Wow… nice taste kelly!
tanster: no worries! so your answer about pam prompted a few questions about jim:
jennifer1111: Jim seems to have more interest in his job but he certainly seems less happy. I worry about him! :-)
kalsop: Mindy, you talked about Pam growing and changing… but what about Jim? He seems a bit stuck in a rut. What’s happening!?
Cal: Willl we see more growth/change in Jim?
Mindy Kaling: It’s funny with Jim
Mindy Kaling: I sometimes worry, like, is it sad that he STILL pulls pranks after what, like, 7 years of working here?
jennifer1111: No! We love the pranks!
Mindy Kaling: And he has so much more responsibilities now, with his house and fiancee
Mindy Kaling: oh, we’ll never get rid of pranks
sorano916: The pranks have changed… they’re not as bad like the bloody glove.
jennifer1111: Yes. He’s definitely More Serious Jim.
Mindy Kaling: but just how funny are those new responsibilities, you know?
Mindy Kaling: Like, I would die if the show became a drama about Jim and Pam’s marital foibles
ChillisBannedMe: call back pranks are awesome – like the ruler between the desk? that was pretty priceless
sarahco17: me too
Kenna: I would die too
sarahco17: please dont let that happen
Mindy Kaling: I won’t!
aklarkin: That would ruin the dynamic of the office!
sarahco17: thanks :)
Mindy Kaling: He is more serious. He has some really really funny stuff with Idris though this spring
jennifer1111: The responsibilities are funny when Dwight sabotages them.
Teheheman: I kinda find it funny that Jim pranks are more thought provoking and Dwight pranks are about physical harm
Mindy Kaling: I like when Jim — usually the cool character — fails or messes up
