Happy Rani’s Birthday!!!! Such a joyous day, which I will celebrate by not having to write new content and instead reposting reviews, yaaay! But that also means I have loads of time to discuss with you in the comments here.
Reading: nothing much of anything, been sort of crazy busy lately, so no books of any description. But my mother is reading Betsy-Tacy which is making me want to reread them. The last 5 books are so stressful, but so good!
Watching: See above. I’m doing the service at church on Sunday and I’ve been mostly running around getting that together, besides my usual Friday-Monday-Tuesday movies I haven’t had time for anything additional.
Thinking: I need to clip Dog’s nails. I already gave her a bath, which was surprisingly untraumatizing. Well, for me. It wasn’t great for her. But all I had to do was throw her in the tub and then she is too tiny to crawl out and her spirit broke pretty fast, and I could just hold her down under the spray of water while she whimpered. Easy-peasy! But turns out clipping the nails is a lot more traumatizing for both of us. I asked my father, thinking he had some clever dog trick, and he said his trick was to just take her to the groomers and make them do it. Which is probably what I will give in and do. Unless one of you has a brilliant idea? Dog groomers aren’t superhuman! Surely if they can do it, I can do it!
Now, question for you! Pretty simple one, but also appropriate for Rani’s birthday:
Who is your favorite actress?
I’ve got several, for the up and coming ones today, Kriti Sonam. For the established batch, Deepika barely edges out Anushka at the top of the pile. For the early 2000s, it was Rani, but only because Kajol retired. The closest I come to an overall winner is probably Kajol. I just wish she had a longer and more challenging career! Her 90s stuff is wonderful and varied and so on, but right when she was reaching the point of breaking out into art cinema, or having a whole serious big budget film built around her, she quit.
