My Ode to Girl Comics

I have no idea what inspired me to write this, but let's just go with it. It might be because a week or so ago, Mindy Kaling (my hero) favorited a tweet of mine on Twitter. I talked about that for like two days straight. Y'all, that means Mindy and I are basically best friends. I could probably start calling her Min or Minsies if I wanted to. No, not Minsies. That's weird and gross.

Anyway. I love girl comediennes. Not super gross stand-up comics, but smart, witty, talented, HILARIOUS comics like Min, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph. Don't get me wrong, boy bands and hot athletes have a special place in my heart, but those ladies are top on my list.

First of all, they're so funny. I'm kind of like Buddy the Elf, smiling and laughing are my favorites. Second of all, they're brilliant. I like to think I'm hilarious and ridiculously smart, and while I have no idea if those things are actually true, in my mind they are. And it's my mind, so I can think what I want. BUT if those things were actually true, then it's totally stands to reason that I could be in some type of awesome girl club with Min, Maya, Amy and Tina. Right? You're probably nodding your head in agreement because it's really obvious.

I don't know if Amy Pohler or Maya Rudolph have written books (I could probably Google that...lazy), but I know Tina and Mindy have. I've read them, and, in the words of world-renowned X Factor judge Britney Spears, "They're amazing." I kid you not, I laughed OUT LOUD reading those books. Now that I think about it, I'm like 98% sure that Amy Poehler wrote the book about Pawnee, so she's on my author list, too. While I have no desire to write, I dream of becoming a book editor some day. I have no Earthly idea how one actually becomes an editor, but I figure I have plenty of time to figure that out. Anywho, if I did became a fabulous editor, then I'd probably become chummy with famous authors (i.e., Mindy and Tina) see where I'm going with this? Just another reason why I should be in their BFF club.

Also, I'd be crazy if I left out another reason why I love my top favorite Mindy. We're both round-ish, and who doesn't love a round-ish girl? She has owned it and rocked it much better than me, so she probably deserves the fame more. She's earned it!

There are many others I could add to this list like Ellen Degeneres, Kristen Wigg and Roseanne Barr (Ha! Just kidding. Making sure you were paying attention!), but I'll leave it to those fabulous ladies and call it a day. I have groceries to put away.
