Happy Wednesday! Boy, this week is just zipping by! Or maybe it is just me, I have been soooooooo busy at work, I arrive and then next time I look up its 3 in the afternoon.
Reading: Finished Pollyanna, on to Pollyanna Grows Up! The romantic sequel where she has to choose who to love.
Thinking: Yesterday was SO WEIRD! I got caught in 5 roadblocks on the way to work, a construction blocker at the end of my block, then an accident and a fire engine blocking the way two blocks away (I had to do a u-turn), then another construction block, then a van double parked, then a car that turned the wrong way down a one way street and we all had to sit there and wait while it did a weird u-turn. I finally got to work, only to have my computer constantly lose internet connection until I finally rebooted it. And the scanner stopped working. It was just WEIRD. I hope today is better.
Watching: A bunch of weird rom-coms from the 60s (TCM had a theme night). Why did everyone lose the ability to deal with sex like adults about 1959? All of these women agonizing over their “virtue” while men give smarmy speeches about “normal” and “healthy” and of course the happy ending is everyone realizing that sex within marriage is the best/only choice. Just do it or don’t do it! Stop talking about it all the time and making it uncomfortable! Oh, and in Sunday in New York last night, Jane Fonda declared she doesn’t wear a girdle. That’s not true, right? I thought all women wore girdles? Unless they were “fast”.
Listening: This is random, but I forgot how much I liked this song from Sultan!
Now, question for you! Courtesy of Emily in the comments: “If you had a time machine and could replace one role in a past film with a present actor, what would it be?”
You know the problem with Chandni? Rishi! He’s too old and not romantic enough and I just can’t sympathize with him. I would replace him with….hmm. Who? Impulsive, over the top, ridiculous, OH! Ranveer Singh!!!! I can totally see him hiring a helicopter to surprise Deepika with rose petals in the morning! And it would give us the vibe we are supposed to have, of the young dashing option versus the Vinod Khanna option. Also, wow, Rishi was only 4 years older in this movie than Ranveer is now!
