~Funny Girl Facts: Mindy Kaling~
If you guys have dug through a lot of my cards, you might have noticed that I mention Mindy Kaling a lot. A whole lot. I discovered her when 'The Office' was in full swing, and old co-workers of mine who watched the show told me I was 'the Kelly Kapoor of our workplace'.
I had to look her up, and I most certainly wasn't about to complain over the comparison. Mindy Kaling is the coolest, and she's my Funny Girl feature of the day!

Here's five facts you might not know about her - just in time for Ladies' Week!

Mindy used to draw weekly comics for her school newspaper when she attended Dartmouth College.

Mindy's parents played her character Kelly Kapoor's parents on an episode of 'The Office' - an episode Mindy wrote herself!

Mindy's apartment in 'The Mindy Project' is Mindy Kaling's actual apartment.

When she was 19, she was an intern for 'Late Night with Conan O'Brien'.

Not only did she star as Kelly Kapoor on 'The Office' - she was their first female writer at only 24 years old!

Do you love Mindy too?

Let me know all about your favorite Mindy moments, and look forward to tomorrow's Funny Girl Facts!
