"Someone said to me recently that we have to encourage more young women to want top-level editing jobs. I think that will happen naturally as we have more role models, more examples of boss ladies who aren’t sad and cruel and overworked and undersexed (*cough* DevilWearsPrada *cough*), but who are straight-up owning it and notable not for their gender but for their editorial savvy."

WHEN THE CMS BREAKS. AGAIN.
This blog, you guys. And Teamsite. Ugh.
"I was drunk and I bought it, and I forgot about it, and it showed up in the mail, and I was really excited."

"Historic New York Times Emoticon Headline Makes it into Print” (via The Observer)
New York Magazine wrote a pretty great Oral History of the UCB Theater.

"Just a year after college, Kaling and one roommate — Brenda Withers, with whom Kaling sang a cappella at Dartmouth — wrote a short play that became the surprise hit of the 2002 New York International Fringe Festival. Withers and Kaling, who are best friends, would, for their own entertainment, mockingly pretend to be the best friends Matt Damon and Ben Affleck; that pretending spawned ‘Matt & Ben,’ the goofy play that reimagined how Damon and Affleck came to write the movie ‘Good Will Hunting.’"
Curtis Sittenfield interviews Mindy Kaling in The New York Times and apparently she and her friend wrote and starred in what sounds like the greatest play ever in my favorite year. So awesome.
