Happy Saturday! I get to sleep in, then do laundry, then go over to my friend-with-a-baby’s house and watch a movie with her and Baby, and then come home and go to bed early so I will be ready to lead a really tricky meeting on Sunday (I get to lead an open conversation about race between 5 white people, and then break the news I am leaving the committee because I am donezo)You ready for what you should all be discussing? How wonderful yesterday’s posts were! Or maybe they weren’t, but they felt good while I was writing them. Could have also been because things FINALLY calmed down at work and I was able to write two consecutive sentences in a row.
Anyway, check out the very very long review of Akaash Vani that digs into why the arranged marriage structure puts too much power in the hands of the parents. You can read the SPOILER section without seeing the movie! Just this once because it’s a really special movie!
And then look at the TGIF post! See if you can identify torsos and heads. As I write this, there are still multiple unidentified male torsos that no one in the comments has figured out.
Then there’s my rare review of live theater. I don’t like it. There isn’t enough camera movement or editing. But it’s fun to read if you have ever suffered through The Nutcracker
And finally, my really really good fanfic! I don’t always think my fanfic is good, but this time it really felt good. And looooong. I stopped halfway through the film and I need other people to read it and tell me if I should keep going!
