Happy Wednesday! I get to take a half day today and do fun fun things all afternoon. And probably not be on the blog much, but I am sure you will all survive. Oh, and just like yesterday was Food Day (that was super fun!), today is going to be Clothes Day.
Watching: I watched Koode with my parents, and they loved it as much as I thought they would. I also watched my nephew over Skype. He has learned both how to raise his hands in the air, and grab things and hold them. But he can’t put things in other things yet, even though his little baby friend is already putting things in other things, and I feel very competitive about this and think that his parents should put him in “putting things in other things” tutoring classes. Apparently I am going to be “that Aunt”. Anyway, here he is triumphantly waving one arm in the air while holding a thing:
Reading: Finished The Blue Sword (thank you Emily!). It’s very fun because it is clearly-but-not-really based on England in India. And also, The Sheikh but not creepy. I love fantasy that takes real life stuff and says “okay, I’m keeping all this good stuff, but I’m dumping all that weird bad stuff”. Along those same lines, I also just started Lois Bujold’s The Sharing Knife series, which is settlers and Native Americans, but flipped to fantasy so all the cool stuff stays and the yucky stuff goes away.
Thinking: I have to go back to the city on Friday, which is a bit of a downer, but on the plus side it is supposed to be super hot on Friday. So maybe I won’t mind returning to my nice air conditioned bedroom. And my TV and limitless internet. Okay, I guess there’s a lot of good things.
Listening: Koode! Such a good soundtrack!
Now, to start us of on Clothes Day, favorite outfit from a movie you watched this week!
I saw Koode, and Parvathy changing into increasingly loose and light clothing as she and Prithviraj run away together at the end just warmed my heart! So, Parvathy in a big man’s shirt and sweatpants and loose wild hair, that is my favorite.
