Happy Wednesday! I can’t believe I’m not even halfway through this week. I think either we need to lose a whole bunch of clients or my boss has to hire another person to help me. Thank goodness I have Shahrukh’s Birthday to look forward to on Friday and Jab Harry Met Sejal Day on Sunday.
Watching: I found Mad About You! One of those sitcoms that I would run into in the middle of the night and sort of watch aimlessly and hadn’t thought about in years. It popped up on Amazon (through their Starz add on) and now I am happily skipping around and enjoying the perfect pleasure of a show I know well enough not to be stressed but have forgotten enough that the jokes feel new.
Reading: Nothing! I’m working too much. Can’t take the bus to work because I have to take the dog because I’ve been staying late and I don’t want her stuck at home alone. I miss the bus! I love the bus!
Thinking: What should I show for Shahrukh Day on Friday? I was leaning towards Jab Harry Met Sejal, but I think it would only work if everyone is there on time and stays the whole time, which seems unlikely. So maybe the traditional viewing of Inner World of Shahrukh? Or his Koffee episode from last season? Or my Date with Shahrukh DVD (disappointingly, not an actual recording of a date with Shahrukh, just a collection of songs and scenes)?
Listening: After all that talk on the review, I am back to the Jab Tak Hai Jaan soundtrack. And I have discovered that “Heer” is STILL my favorite song, head and shoulders above the rest, just like it was when I first heard the soundtrack 6 years ago. Partly because of the music, but also because the lyrics are so beautiful even some one who isn’t a fluent Hindi speaker can appreciate them.
Now, question for you! In addition to the “what should we watch at Shahrukh’s birthday party” question. A simple one: For Halloween, what movie would you watch?
For me, I think I would watch Talaash first, for reasons known by those who have seen it but not by those who have not.
And then Bol Bachchan, because everyone is pretending to be something they aren’t.
And then Jodha-Akbar, because it has the best costumes.
(Now THAT’S a Halloween costume!!!!)
