Nikki Darling is one of those friends.
Today is Nikki's mild 30-something-ish birthday. She is a beautiful human being, writer and thinker.
In keeping with this blog's theme, I thought I would quote some of Nikki's most Mild Moments.
1. Nikki is the kind of friend not afraid to see Bridesmaids ALONE, blog about it, post a film still on your Facebook wall from it and then SEE IT AGAIN. And she even sent me this email after seeing it:
"I saw Bridesmaids last night. The only thing that would have made it better was you."
Nikki, I love you.
2. Nikki, is also the kind of person who will respond to a cat photo you sent her with this:
"i just got back from the longest day of babysitting ever and my neighbor is using a power saw. I cannot. oh god. p.s. really, so cute!"
She can always see the purr at the end of the tunnel.
3. Nikki also has an amazing blog called LIVE FROM THE PENIS GALLERY that you should really check out. When Nikki is not busy being purely awesome just being well, NIKKI, she is a fierce feminist music critic who's words will light up your life.
4. Nikki is just EGGCELLENT. At her birthday brunch yesterday, it was so nice to be there with her and see her surrounded by her wonderful friends AND CATS.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LADY!
