Eden Sher stars as Sue Heck, the awkward daughter wedged between two obnoxious brothers on ABC’s The Middle, which is in it’s eighth (!) season. (You also know her from Sons & Daughters and Weeds). She is the author of the very fun new book The Emotionary: A Dictionary of Words that Don’t Exist for Feelings That Do, which would make an excellent holiday gift btw. A personal favorite term from it? "Guiltroversion" (Guilt + Introversion): the guilt from wanting to see no one and do nothing. Don't tell me you haven't felt it too. 

Some things Eden loves:
"Codenames: It’s a game of words that super creative and INSANELY addictive. Able to be played with as many or as few people as you like (I think the minimum is actually four), only takes 15ish minutes a round (I promise you will not be able to play just one round, though) and perfect for all types of people whether they are game people or not."
"Beauty Counter charcoal mask. I know this is technically a mask, but it's super intense (at least for my skin), so I use it as a spot treatment and leave it on overnight. This one I reserve for that pimple so deep you feel it germinating under your skin for days before it emerges. And by pimple I mean actual living organism that uses your face as a womb until it's ready to break through the surface and claim your face as its new kingdom. A little of this nips those right in the bud."
"Comics are pretty much the only things I read, and I would actually go so far as to say they are a tragically underrated medium. A few of my current obsessions are Saga: fantasy/sci fi epic which you will not be able to put down. If you're not a fantasy/sci-fi person do not be deterred—this is a brilliant piece of literature that transcends genre and is able to be enjoyed by all. The Woods: It's like Lost meets...something with really compelling teenage characters. Lumberjanes: Takes place at a camp, follows the adventures of a group of girls at camp. Just so, so fun and silly and able to be enjoyed by kids AND adults, which I feel is actually the greatest feat of all. Paper Girls: Badass time travel tale centered around four badass 12-year-old girls. Enough said."
"Rick and Morty: The most insane, ridiculous, brilliant cartoon that has possibly ever been made. It's totally absurd while somehow incredibly nuanced and laugh out loud funny with snarky/razor sharp commentary, and it somehow manages to sneak in these super touching, real moments. And Atlanta: I think this has actually gotten accurate praise/critical acclaim, but I still don't feel like enough people are watching. Donald Glover is a genius and this show needs to win all of the Emmys."
