Have you noticed I’ve been doing slightly more of those “this is my life in song form” posts? It’s partly because my fall is getting busier and busier and there are some days when all I have time to do is tell you all what I have been doing instead of blogging. And partly because I’ve been blogging for almost 2 years now and I feel like you are all my friends, so why not tell you about my life? Anyway, if you are bored by these posts, just skip to the end for the streaming news you should know.
This was the first Sunday of Sunday School, which is always both the slowest and fastest 50 minutes of my week. 11 kids, only 3 teachers, we were outnumbered!
(Maybe Sridevi could have handled it, but we can’t all be Sridevi)
The calmest time was when we taught them all a song. Just like Shahrukh!
And then briefly at the end I had them all tied in yarn, that was kind of calm, but also slightly dangerous (we had to cut them loose).
(One Saif tied up by many women is a lot easier to control than 11 kid tied together by 3 adults)
Oh, and 4 of the 6 boys kept wrestling each other. Question for you in the comments who are boys/parents of boys: is the rule “don’t bother stopping it unless there are tears or blood” still good? Or should I try to progress to “no jumping/tackling/wrestling/slap fights/light punching AT ALL”? Because that last seems a lot harder to enforce.
(This is essentially what happened for 50 minutes straight through various combinations of 4 different little boys.)
Anyway, we survived it, and then spent an hour trying to figure out what we can do better to keep them from killing each other/us and possibly actually learn something sometimes to. So next week, MORE RUNNING AROUND ACTIVITIES!!! Wear them out so they can’t hurt each other. Just like Chak De India.
Oh, and then we met with the kids’ parents who all said “They love coming to church on class days! They used to complain and now they are so happy and excited and beg to come to church!” Which I guess means we should just let them all keep trying to kill each other, because apparently they like that?
And then I went to the grocery store because I was out of milk, and then to the bank to deposit my paycheck to pay for the milk.
And now I am home and sitting on the couch watching a Malayalam movie on my TV instead of pirated from einthusan on my laptop because…………………HOTSTAR IS NOW AVAILABLE IN THE US!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just go HERE to sign up. And there is even a 30 day free trial available. AND it is available as an app on smart TVs and TiVos and blu-rays and stuff! Not just through Chromecast.
This is wonderful news firstly because it means there is a new high quality legal streaming source for Indian films. And secondly because Hotstar has bought up all the “good” films and made them unavailable through any other source unless you were in the Hotstar market. But now I AM in that market! No more “this is not available in your region warnings!” WOOT-WOOT!
And, it’s $10 a month. But SO WORTH IT. Based on their selection, if you are interested in Indian films, this is the one streaming service you should buy.
