Happy Wednesday! Today’s the day I move from my parent’s place to my place every week, so I have a kind of holiday feel, even though it’s really still middle of the work week.
Reading: I risked death to get every Thirkell in existence from the suburban library. They have a much better selection than the Chicago library, and they let Chicago people check out from them, but they won’t do holds or curbside pick up for city folk. So I had to actually go inside and get things from the shelves, terrifying!
Watching: Well, I saw Seder-Masochism! Highly HIGHLY recommend it, especially if you liked Sita Sings the Blues. Only three things to know about it: 1) It’s quite a bit darker than Sita in several spots, be prepared for that; 2) as Sita was about her relationship with her ex, this one is about her relationship with her Dad, be prepared for some loving but frustrating conversation; 3) My father worked on her father’s election campaign in 1973, isn’t that weird????
Thinking: It is impossible to get a cooking pumpkin! Not impossible-impossible, I am sure they are in stores like usual in September. But impossible for online ordering and curbside pick-up. There are “medium” pumpkins available and also “tiny”. Tiny is clearly those little decorative gourd things. I tried “medium” last time I did pick up and they came out with this huge carving pumpkin thing. Anyway, I am sending my elderly parents out to get them for me since they get to go to Senior Hours. I looooooooooooooooooove my pumpkins, I can’t handle not having them. If my parents fail me, I’m raiding a community garden.
Listening: Yashji week! I don’t like this movie, but I really love the songs:
Now, question for you! For Yashji week, a simple one, what is your favorite Yashji movie?
Oh man, this is SO HARD! I think I am going to go with Trishul? It’s not as good as Deewar, but that Amitabh intro is the best, and I really like how decent Shashi is. And happy ending! And a Karna story!
