Saturday Small Talk: Chat Away While I Get a Cheap Facial!

Happy Saturday! I have a lovely day planned that involves lots of public transit and a cheap facial. Best way to enjoy the city.

Every once in a while I think “boy, I really want a facial”. And then I don’t get one because it’s not the kind of thing you can usually schedule last minute, and because they are pretty pricey and it is wasteful to spend money on happiness instead of profitable practical things. Anyway, post Mission Mangal on Thursday, I thought “I deserve a facial”. And it was enough in advance that not only did I manage to schedule one for Saturday, I did it with the local aestheticism school so it’s not expensive! I am endlessly proud of myself.

Only downside, which is really an upside, is that the school is located deep deep in the city so I have to either drive 40 minutes or take the bus and train for an hour to get there. Which is great! Since I take Albie Dog to work, I can’t commute on the bus any more and I miss it. I will read my nice book and look out the window and be happy. And then have my facial and then go back home the same way with a bright shining face.

So that’s what I am doing! Meantime, you all can talk about whatever you want to talk about. For example, who is going to go see Blinded By the Light?

Or, what are your current Saaho plans? Less than two weeks less to finalize!

Or, the big question, should I do a one month, two month, or two week SRK celebration this year?

  1. How about a one week SRK thing. At most. (I confess, I am overdosed on the guy.)

    I saw Blinded by the Light on opening night and I thought it was great. Lots of angst but happy resolution.

    • Yay! I think they’ll all like it, ignoring the whining. We mostly only go to see superhero movies these days and I don’t want to lose touch with the other kinds of stories film can tell.


  2. Re ShahRukh birthday, I can never have too much of him, but it depends on what else you have to say for now. Perhaps work out what content you have and decide from that.

    Re Blinded by the Light, planning to see it, but no more spoilers please people. I know it’s giving feel-good vibes, but no need to confirm the outcome already.


    • All right, I’m convinced! I’m gonna see it, and also put up spoiler and no spoiler reviews.

  3. Regarding “blinded by light” i am genuinely curious, why the cast is devoid of pakistami actors; are they not that many in UK? The only guy i know in mainstream is nanjiani, who is from US.


    • I discovered when researching Bend it Like Beckham that Archie Panjabi is Pakistani heritage. Sindhi Hindu, but from what is now Pakistan.

      It’s an interesting question, I think there are a fair number of Pakistani heritage actors in England although I can’t think of any names at the moment. For this film, it hadn’t occurred to me to think about that side of things. I’m going to assume it was background-blind casting, at least in terms of pre-England life. Everyone in the cast is British-Asian, no Asian-Asian and no American-Asian or anything like that, just locals.
