ruckus wedding weekend: Friday.

If only every work day could be as good as court, successful mediation, a free ticket to the Phoenix Room where you win a bet placed with voucher money!

Mindy Kaling: Refusing To Be An Outsider And Sexism On Set

I think that the sort of sexism that I see has been one that’s a little bit like a gentler form of sexism, but still a little bit debilitating, which is that when, as a producer and a writer, whether it was at The Office or [at The Mindy Project], if I make a decision, it’ll still seem like it’s up for debate. And I notice that a little bit at The Office, with, like, an actor: If I decided there’d be a certain way in the script, it would still seem open-ended, whereas … if I was a man I would not have seen that. [At The Mindy Project,] I feel that … less and less as I’ve sort of matured into the role more. The one thing I sort of, because of that, have felt [is] that when I made a decision I sort of would have to leave the room so that it was final and there was like no discussion would come after that.

caught this on the radio this morning. it’s worth a listen.

i told gavin i was about to start making my “only associate, what do you want to do to keep me here long term” requests/demands.

For those in search of another TV show to binge:

The Good Wife is really excellent and seems to be one of those rare shows that actually gets better and better each season. I’m currently on season 5 and I highly recommend. I will offer the caveat that I may be more inclined to like a lawyer show than the average person but I also might not because I usually hate criminal justice shows. Seasons 1-4 on Netflix, Season 5 on HuluPlus, Season 6 currently airing and the seasons are LONG (22+ hour long episodes) so you won’t be left being able to burn through it too quickly.

Blake Abene of Root and Square Root: A 2014 Chef to Watch in New Orleans

Why did you become a chef?

I used to sell insurance. It’s our family business. Then Katrina happened. It made me lose faith in the whole system. I can remember this old lady sitting at my desk and crying, because she didn’t have floor insurance and her house was gone and we were going to give her $3,000 for a roof because it probably blew off before it flooded.

But why cooking?

I thought, ‘I’ve got to do something else, something that doesn’t make old ladies cry.’ So I’m going to go and learn how to make cupcakes. No one cries over a cupcake.

HALLOWEEN GROUP COSTUME IDEA:

9 women all dress up as supreme court justices.

gaypocalypse:

Diane Sawyer: So, have you thought, how many women is enough? How many women [on the Supreme Court] would be enough?
Ruth Bader Ginsburg: Nine, nine. [Applause.]
Sawyer: Oh! Oh. [Laughs.]
Ginsburg: Well, there’ve been nine men there for a long long time, right? So why not nine women?
