Happy Wednesday! And Happy Valentine’s Day! I am going to celebrate by buying a special fancy flavored coffee instead of making my own at home and being cheap.
Watching: Minsara Kanavu, which took me two nights to finish because the Dog kept interrupting me (more on that in a minute). And tonight at least one friend is coming over for my traditional “V-Day with SRK” party, so we will probably be fast-forwarding through a movie we have seen before. Chalte Chalte maybe?
Reading: Still going through Rajinikanth’s book. For online articles, I added a link to the Padman review, but in cased you missed it, here is an article that has been making the rounds which brings up some interesting points about the basic premise of the film, that women in India need lessons on menstrual health:
Thinking: This dog! The last 3 nights she’s had a new thing, if I look away from her (for instance, to watch Minsara Kanavu) for more than ten minutes, she starts jumping and whining and finally barking. It’s not that she wants a walk or needs more water or anything, it isn’t even that I haven’t been paying attention to her (I’m petting her and she is right next to me), it’s that I haven’t been 100% absolutely focused on her at all times. If she can see me, she needs me to be loving her to the exclusion of all other interests. I’ve had to hide in my bedroom sometimes just because if she can’t see me, she’s fine. She doesn’t have separation anxiety, she doesn’t really “need” attention, but she feels she deserves it, I am there to love her and woe be tide me if I try to do anything else. So yes, she needs a different owner, someone who wants a little dog that obsesses over them when they are in the room and forgets them when they aren’t.
Now, questions!!!! A simple one for Valentine’s Day:
Favorite romantic movie?
Favorite couple in a movie?
Again, Shahrukh and Kajol in DDLJ (duh), but runner up might be Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sonam in Raabta. I know it’s crazy, but that’s where I’m at right now! Oh, and of course Bahubali and Devasena.
Favorite love song?
Well, I just watched Minsara Kanavu, so obviously “Vinnelave Vinnelave”. But also “Pyaar Hua Ikrar Hua”, justifiably famous. And “Ajnabi Shahar Hai” is just one of my favorite songs in general. And “Bolne Halke Halke” from Jhoom Barabar Jhoom. And “Hoshwalon Ko Khabar” from Sarfarosh. So, I guess a 5 way tie!
Now, how about you? What have you been doing this week, and what are your favorite love movies, couples, and songs?
