Happy Wednesday! Padmavati comes out in 2 days (maybe), and December starts (definitely). And I am going to finish my Christmas presents on time (almost definitely maybe).
This is the place for us all to talk about what we are doing this week, the sort of general discussion that doesn’t fit anywhere else. I’ll start!
Reading: I am determined to finish Dilip Sahib’s autobiography by his birthday! Even though I am now entering my December brain fog that makes only light weight romance novels appealing. But no! I will get through this! Anyway, I’m coming up on the Madhubala section, which is extremely similar to a light weight romance novel.
Thinking: Thinking about figuring out my December scheduling. Family in town weekend after this through to January, off and on. Need to juggle aunt, cousin, sister, brother-in-law, Grandpa, and of course Salman. And finishing Christmas gifts, teaching Sunday School (thank goodness only one lesson in December), and everything else. Thank goodness I already put up all my trees on Sunday, so the decorating is done at least.
Watching: Along with a handful of Salman movies (preparing for Salman week), I have FINALLY caught up on Downton Abbey, like everyone else in the world. Mostly it is nice background viewing, because I don’t actually like all these people. Partly because I am American and I can’t stand all these people who don’t actually DO anything with their lives! And also Julian Fellowes is just the worst at inserting the most egregious Marty Sues. All these noble middle-aged men with young women fawning over them! Anyway, I’m not that emotionally involved, but it is very pretty. Oh, and Mary=Deepika, Edith=Anushka, Sybil=Alia.
So, what have you been up to? And am I heartless for not caring about all these pretty wealthy people who occasionally have mildly bad things happen to them that are still not as bad as what the vast majority of their society is suffering from?
