Don’t worry, I’ll be sure to share a picture of my SRK Day cake once I finish it, but I don’t know when that will be. In the meantime, let us share our plans for the Big Night!
Last year I had cake and JHMS by myself and it was really nice. This year, opposite of that, SO MANY PEOPLE!!!!
Friend A goes to school near me and is fairly reliable about coming over, so I wasn’t surprised when she said “yes”.
Friend B was at my very first Indian movie night 10 years ago and has come off and on since depending on where she was living, she is bringing her boyfriend with her and might come a little late, both things make me nervous.
Friend C was also at that first Indian movie night and has an 8 month old baby, she has set her husband to babysitting and will come a little late too, depending on Baby and no doubt will also leave a little early.
Friend D will arrive very early and leave very early because she has to pick up her parents at the airport but wanted to at least stop by on this joyous occasion.
Friend F I haven’t seen in literally a year, but I pestered and pestered and hopefully guilted her into coming, still unclear.
Friend G is an Actual Desi Person and also an Actual Grown-Up with kids and stuff who is coming with her sister on time and I am a little worried about living up to their expectations.
So, I’m thinking either a truly terrible SRK movie that we can all ignore and/or make fun of (Baadshah, Guddu, like that). Or else just a songs DVD. Maybe an interview if people are able to focus a little bit. But definitely not a “good” movie with everyone being in and out.
(I enjoy this movie, but I am not going to pretend it is worth laser focus and putting down cake plates)
Also, no dinner! I was thinking about ordering pizza, but if half the people are late and half are early, I’m just gonna do cake and call it good enough.
Biggest problem, I promised rides home (since I live kind of far away by public transit). Which means either I throw everyone out simultaneously, or I make some people stay much later than they want just to get a ride. Oh well, I guess that is the price they pay for a ride.
