Happy Wednesday!!!! I’m having one of those long slooooooooow work weeks. Too much to do, so they days go by fast, but I am exhausted at the end. Oh well, half way through!
Watching: I caught the start of The Guru on TV yesterday, another Merchant-Ivory film. It looks quite odd. But I am very proud of myself because I saw the opening credits and went “this feels like a Merchant-Ivory movie” and then it WAS!!! Someday when I feel I have the strength, I may finish it.
Reading: I just started Pollyanna again! Did you know Pollyanna was just one of several sappy three volume novels by Eleanor Porter? I have read all of them. They vary in quality greatly, I can see why Pollyanna was the only one that really lasted. At least she wasn’t a creepy racist obsessed with masturbation like Gene Stratton Porter. All of whose books I have also read. And which also vary quite a bit.
Thinking: I’m going on a mini-break! Visiting my sister for the weekend. Obviously we are doing Student of the Year 2 together in theaters (a perfect sister movie), but what else to watch? I think Andhadhun is the perfect brother-in-law movie, right?
Listening: With the hectic days at work, I’ve retreated to SRK songs to sooth me. And I’ve decided, once again, to ignore the reality that it is ridiculous to listen to a “Shahrukh playlist” since he doesn’t actually sing his own songs. And it’s let me rediscover some really pleasant old favorites, like this one.
Now, question for you! This mother’s day I am reposting my review of Pari, and yesterday I put up a post with 10 suggested mother’s day films. What film would you suggest for mother’s day?
