“If you’re always questioning and allowing yourself to be humble enough to take your licks and accept the idea that your work can always be improved, then you’re much more inclined to learn from other people’s projects and become better.”—Brad Bird (via disneypixar)
so this morning I went out to breakfast with my mom and we were sitting inside the restaurant eating, and some guy was out eating on the patio with three lil doggies.
and naturally I couldn’t stop staring at them because they were so dang cute. and one lil doggie walked to the other side of the patio and I saw him trying to be sneaky and he wiggled out under the fence and there was A STREET on the other side. so I bolted from my seat inside the restaurant and my mom was like “WHAT” and I ran outside and told the man his lil doggie was on the other side of the fence, and so the man called to his dog and it came back and we breathed a sigh of relief. and the man was like SUPER grateful for me catching that and letting him know.
idk I feel like a good person plus I probably saved a doggie’s life so there ya go.
“You could put Jack and Kate on a New York City street and have them pass eachother at rush hour on a Wednesday morning. And they would stop and turn, slowing to watch eachother go by. They know eachother within the context of a universal recognition. They have met before in this life, and they will meet again, in another.”—J. J. Abrams (via sayidjarrahs)
Stern:Have you had great love in your life, where it just hurts that it didn't work out?
Stern:Why did it not work out?
Kaling:Because, uh... this sounds so lame, it's not profound, but people are so different, and you can overlap in certain ways that are important but not... the ones that are the most important, or something.
Stern:Are you still in touch with this guy?
Stern:Do you know what he's up to, do you know if he's married now, does he have kids...?
Kaling (laughing):Yeah, he's, he's not married, no.
Stern:But you check on him.
Kaling:Yeah, he's a good friend of mine. Yeah.
Stern:Look at that smile! I think we can set you back up with this guy. I think you're in love.
Kaling:Yeah, well, he's my best friend, so it's... that's not...
Stern:He broke up with you or you broke up with him?
Kaling:...He broke up with me.
Stern:You would take him back.
Kaling:No... it was years ago when this break up happened.
Stern:Best sex of your life with this guy?
Kaling:Oh, man. It was pretty good. He's a smart and funny guy!
Stern:Were you upset when you broke up?
Kaling:I was so, so sad. Not angry-sad. Sad-sad. That was the hottest I'd ever looked, because I'd stopped eating...I'd wake up, get out of bed, and not care. We worked together...but I was real miserable.
Stern:I think the guy you were in love with was the guy you co-starred with on the Office. [Kaling LAUGHS] Am I right or am I wrong?
Kaling:B.J.? He was... he was -
Stern:He was the guy.
Kaling:Well, he was, yes, you are correct, not that the mystery - you're not Sherlock Holmes or anything, Howard -
Stern:I'm Sherlock Holmes! That's right, that's what they call me.
Kaling:You're like, 'who have you known for ten years who you worked with...' No, but he legitimately is one of my best friends; he texted me before the show like 'Good luck on Howard,' he's been on my show, he was a producer on the pilot, I see him all the time.
Stern:If he asked you to marry him you would have.
Kaling:At the time? Yeah.
Kaling:I mean, it would have been.. I was 24. But for the record, if anybody had asked me to marry them I would have...but he's a wonderful guy.
Stern:Well let's hope he calls you tomorrow and asks you to marry him!
Kaling:I! I would not - one thing about this is, I love him and think he's a good person, but I'm not holding a candle for him or anything...
Stern:I believe if he called you tomorrow and said, 'I made a terrible mistake; we must get back together and get married,' you would do it.
Kaling:I... I don't know. I don't know.
Stern:It's not a 'no.' That's it.
Stern:We'll get you a boyfriend, don't worry about it.
