Happy Monday! I’m back at work after an adventurous weekend, and taking Albie Dog to the vet to get a million shots and a feces check and all that fun annual stuff. His life is hard some days.
This is where you get to ask me anything you want any time all week! Movie you want to know if I’ve seen, opinion on a performance, backstory on a new gossip feature, swing over here and ask away and learn it all.
Now, I have two silly questions for you! First, is this the face of a dog who is sick of spending the weekend at my parents’ while I go on trips and ready to go back home already the second I let him jump in the car?
Second, should I be nervous that the box for my new coffee table is this big?
And third, real question, (well, kind of real): our Valentine’s theme this year is Sex. What movie is your favorite for how it handles sex?
My favorite changes regularly, but as of this moment it’s Running Shaadi. Our heroine has sex with a guy she doesn’t really like and it means literally nothing to her. And then she has a long slow relationship with the hero that is all about spending time together, sharing tea, holding hands, and the occasional cheek kiss which means so much more. Before they finally decide to have sex, buying condoms and planning in advance, but it’s still romantic and all even if it isn’t sudden or spontaneous. And then life interrupts and they don’t have sex just then after all, and that’s fine too. When it happens, whenever that is, it will be wonderful and magical because they love each other, but they don’t have to rush into it.
So, what’s your favorite movie for how it handles sex as part of the love story? Yes, you are allowed to say Band Baaja Baaraat even though I disagree with you.
