1. I grew up in Boston, I work in the Valley and my parents are Indian; yet I can't do these accents to save my life.

2. I left Chris Pine for my current boyfriend.

3. If I drive by a long line in front of a store, I have to stop to find out what's going on.

4. If I ever see a spotlight in the nighttime sky, I have to follow it to find out what's going on.

5. I'm nosy. I have to know what's going on.

6. If I wasn't on The Office, I would do a reality show called Hot Truant Lady Officer where I drive around in a van making kids go to school.

7. I don't trust anyone to mail anything for me. I have to put it in the mailbox myself.

8. My dream role would have been Ariel from The Little Mermaid.

9. I ask a lot of questions during movies. Everyone hates this.

12. I always wanted to write music or dance in the episodes of The Office that I write.

17. I think Sour Patch Kids will be illegal one day. Until they are, I'm not asking questions.

19. Lisa Bonet from The Cosby Show is still the coolest, most glamorous person to me.
