Mindy Kaling is in charge

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM -

Between writing her second book, fittings for Vogue and amassing a television empire, somehow Mindy Kaling doesn't let it all get to her head.

"So many of those people out there they wish they were my best friend which is such a nice compliment I'm like if I can give that to them even for a second that's so nice for me,'' she says.

Clearly, it's hard not to love Mindy.

It's also hard not to cringe while watching her on screen counterpart -- Mindy Lahriri -- navigate the New York City dating scene on "The Mindy Project."

And even though we're two seasons into the show that she created, stars in and executive produces, she's still getting used to being the boss.

In real life, Mindy sets the record straight on the difference between dating in New York versus where she lives in L.A.

But Mindy has some bad news for you single ladies in the city. She says the best place to find a man is over a thousand miles away: Austin, Texas.

    All of us feel the same way about "cooties": Eww. At the Goddard School on the Upper West Side, a high-tech machine is keeping "cooties" out of the classroom. "This is the latest and then most effective sanitization method available today," says Bill Swan, the owner of the Goddard School. He purchased the ZONO Sanitech for his school about six months ago. The machine is the size of a double refrigerator and uses oxygen to kill viruses and bacteria.
