Happy Wednesday! I am so excited to get through this week. And at the end of it, 2.0!!!! Probably on Saturday. I am moderately interested in it, but not $25 ticket interested. So I’m waiting for the cheap Saturday matinees.
Watching: Not much! I still need to re-watch Delhi 6 so I can write about it, otherwise I’ve just got sitcoms I’ve already seen a million times going on in the background while I blog and stuff.
Reading: Romance novels! ‘Tis the season! And oh my goodness in the past 11 months I have forgotten how baaaaaad some of them are. Like, terrible fake dialogue and ridiculous character descriptions and bleh! And then you run across a good one and it’s like “aaaaah. Content!”
Thinking: Is it bad that I am about 2% done with the first of 9 homemade presents that I need to make before the 20th of December? Nah, it’s probably fine.
Listening: ‘Tis the season, I have retreated to Christmas music. So sorry in advance to all the many many readers who don’t care about seasonal music. Two songs that stood out. First, this is one of those songs that makes me go “OMG Baby Boomers! Get OVER yourselves!!!! Wa-wa, you feel like you lost your youth and whatever, at least you had HEALTH CARE!!!! And JOBS!!!!”
(Okay, now I feel a little bad because Fogelberg died in 2007. But still, when the song came out in 1981, my point stands that his life at age 30 was way way better than the life of my college debt ridden no healthcare generation at age 30. Also, based on a true story! Except she was actually married to a gym teacher, but I guess that doesn’t rhyme as well as architect)
And then this one is just fun and does not bring up within me hidden generational resentment:
Now, question for you! Random one:
Desert island!!!! 3 songs, 2 movies, 1 movie star. What do you pick?
Sholay and Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. Easy-peasy.
1 movie star:
Definitely Shahrukh. Probably useless for stuff like building a shelter and finding food, but super energetic and very entertaining. Never going to say something dumb or uninteresting.
