After a seemingly interminable absence (6 months, to be specific), Mindy Kaling is back at the keyboard and updating her shopping blog, Things I've Bought That I Love (link under Favourite Links heading on the left)!!! You have no idea how happy this makes me, after checking her site weekly to see if she'd put up anything new, and always being disappointed.
I may be back to that familiar sinking feeling, though. In her most recent entry - the one about High Waisted Skirts, squeeee! - she suggests wearing one to a John McCain fund raising dinner. I don't know if this is some kind of extra-sophisticated joke or what, but I think, to my horror, that it's not. But that would mean that of my most beloved people on Earth and #1 on my Girl Crush List is someone who has aligned herself with almost everything I believe to be Wrong.
So what now? I think if she keeps the plugs to a minimum we'll be able to maintain a working relationship, and after the election I hope she tones it down so we can forget that this nasty little incident ever happened. And after that - smooth sailing and fruity giggles in the land of capitalism.
