We are a Star Wars family.

 Someone needs to do this. The most likely candidate is Tina, but Val is a close second.

Mindy Project quote of the week --12/2 and 12/9

12/2-- Peter moves into Danny's rental apartment. 
Danny talking about Peter moving in next door-- "We don't need a Kramer, and if we did, Morgan is more that energy."

Mindy--"As great as a manly guy is, sometimes you need a pinch hitter. A pal you take to the Rhianna book signing when your boyfriend calls it 'the reason China is winning.'" 

12/9-- Christmas episode (I usually hate Christmas episodes but this one was great!!) 

Mindy to her boss--"You're so wise. Why are you wasting time in medicine? You should be a life coach on The Biggest Loser." 

Mindy, talking about applying for a fellowship at Stanford -- "It's only eight months. I'll be back to ruin football season for you."

Peter to Danny--"why would Mindy go to Stanford? She hates not being the only Asian in the room."

My friend Anne Lise came to visit for a week. She brought her 16 year old daughter. We did a lot of the usual and not-so-usual NYC tourist stuff. 
The reservoir and Bethesda fountain in Central Park. 

Eating cupcakes from Magnolia

And cookies and hot chocolate from City Bakery 

A black and white cookie from Empire bakery ("Look to the cookie, Elaine.  Look to the cookie."

A trip to the farmer's market 

Riding the subway 

Drove to NJ to visit these goofballs. This isn't the best picture but I think my niece looks a lot like my sister in the picture, even though she's looking down. (Deciding who she looks like is the great debate of 2014) 

Thanksgiving dinner gathering. 

And then they were on their way back to Cali! 
No problems here!

New Girl quote of the week--11/18, 11/25

November 18... Teachers conference 
Coach, remarking on Jess's crush, Ryan -- "Him? He looks like a boys' department mannequin." 

November 25... Obligatory Thanksgiving episode 

Jess to Ryan --"Do I sing Oasis songs to myself and pretend that they were inspired by your love for me? I do!"

Mindy quote of the week --11/18, 11/25

November 18 ..Mindy's diary 
After Danny reads Mindy's diary and reads that she likes his butt, he says, "Nice going, Danny Jr." 

November 25.. Mindy sets Danny's mom up on a date 
Danny when he saw his mother dressed up for her date-- "What the hell is this? Why is Ma dressed up like the tart of Staten Island?"

Mindy talking to Danny's mom about dating--"New York City is all hot gays and bald straights." 

Steelers v Jets

KB is a big Steelers fan. I'm a super nice girlfriend and bought him tickets to see the Steelers play the Jets here at the Meadowlands for his birthday. There were just as many Steeler fans as Jets fans at the game, and lots of "mixed" couples there.  I wouldn't say we were one of them since I don't care.  The Steelers lost, but it was a fun day anyway. 
Here is the crowd waiting to board the NJ Transit train to the Meadowlands. There is a lot of black and yellow in this crowd! 
Warning: selfies ahead. 

Here we are on the train. We walked way ahead and ended up on an empty car. They use the double decker trains to get out there, so there was plenty of room. 

And here we are at the game. 
I wore a down coat and we brought a blanket but the day was so nice and sunny, we didn't need either one.  Mid November-- who knew?!
It was so fun that I think next year I'll have to spring for tickets to see them in Pittsburg.

Mindy Project quote of the week-- 11/11

Peter: "We had a night of crazy sex, now it's time for the punishment. So, where are we going for brunch?...  I just thought we should do what you want to do today, so you want to go to spin class, you want to go to see your friend's new baby?" 

Spoiler alert: I don't know why they broke Peter and Abby up already. She was a nice addition to the show.
