The best books I’ve read in cold, snowy, hot chocolatey winter: Part I
Mindy Kaling’s Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?
This book is so brilliant that I lost some friends trying to convince them it was far and away better than Bossypants. This is a good book to give to someone you love because they will laugh out loud reading it and be happy. It’s also a good gift to give to someone you hate, because they will read it and maybe their personality will get better after spending quality time in the hilarious childhood memories and astute pop-cultural wisdom of Mindy Kaling.
Stay tuned for the next installment of… The best books I’ve read in cold, snowy, hot chocolatey winter.

Beloved literature professor and acclaimed author Marguerite Feitlowitz has lost her woolen cape! Having (and then maybe losing) a woolen cape is a very English-teacher-y problem in the first place, you know? In the case of this missing cloak she has graciously offered a “no questions asked” policy, though I bet I can guess the first few questions she has for anyone who appears with it…
Why did you take my cape?
Where has this been?
Why were you smoking cigarettes in my cape?
You thought it was a finals good-luck charm?
Oh, you have the same one?
Yours is from Urban Outfitters?
