Happy Saturday! I am up at the Lake House again for a long stretch to end out the year. Of course I still have my stupid foot, so I can’t go swimming or on boats. But I can sit on the porch and read a book, so I’ll be doing a lot of that instead of responding to blog comments. Oh, and finishing/reviewing Sadak 2, I’m watching it on my phone
Happy Saturday! I’m gonna give you some happy things to talk about:
Kareena and Saif are expecting again, and Anushka and Virat are expecting for the first time. Quarantine is weirdly good for them, because I am sure neither couple wanted to announce until safely after the first trimester. But both women are so very very famous it would have been hard to keep it a secret if they were still going out and about.
Babies bring with them so much happy stuff to discuss. Do we want a boy or a girl for either couple? Or do we not care? I very much want Anushka to have a girl because, as a raging feminist, I want to see how she raises a daughter. She could be our first Indian celeb to go for aggressively gender neutral clothing, for instance.
Also, 20 years from now, should these babies marry each other? I would like that. Two Cricket/film dynasties merging together. Oh OH! Or if the babies are both boys, 20 years from now they could be on the Indian Cricket team together fighting a fierce rivalry echoed by their aging Diva mothers aggressively ignoring each other in the stands.
It’s Nagarjuna’s Birthday!
Does anyone know who he is? On DCIB I mean? He’s a very big deal Telugu actor, big star in the 80s and 90s through to today (although he’s 61 now, so no more dangerous young man roles). He was the younger hero in Khuda Gawah in Hindi. He was also rumored to have had an extramarital affair with Tabu. And I like him! He’s got kind of an Anil Kapoor pleasant vibe but slightly sexier.
And final random topic, following up on my coffee post a few days ago: when is it Pumpkin Spice season?
I feel strongly that it has to be at least September, and below 75 degrees, before you are allowed to have Pumpkin Spice. No matter what Starbucks says.
