Happy Wednesday! This week has felt so fast to me. Probably because my work’s been busy, that makes the days fly by so much faster.
Reading: Oh oh! I have a good one this week! Aman Basha, who has commented here a few times, wrote a thing on SRK which is really interesting. Y’all should read it! https://baradwajrangan.wordpress.com/2020/10/22/readers-write-in-287-peddler-of-dreams-seller-of-love/
Watching: I have been on a kick of crime-ish documentaries. Don’t know why, just something satisfying about about watching humans be weird. I suppose if I want the Indian version, the closest I could come would be Talwar. Oh, and tonight I am thinking of watching The Willoughbys with my parents. Has anyone seen it? Is it good like the reviews say?
Thinking: I may need to alter my schedule. I’ve been doing Sunday night through Wednesday morning at my parents, but this last weekend with the sun going down earlier, and too cold to really meet up with friends, and so on, my apartment started feeling very weird and empty. May need to do a few more days a week living with other people. Also, THANK GOD I live close to my parents!!!! I don’t know how young people living alone do it who aren’t close to family. I guess they don’t, I’m hearing more and more stories of people giving up their apartments and flying cross country to move back home.
Listening: Since it’s almost Shahrukh Day, this seems appropriate
Now, question for you! First, what are you doing for Halloween?
I bought scary earrings that I will wear all day to be festive. And I may put a costume on the dog when I walk him. My Mom ordered fancy truffles and is going to put a bag of them on all the neighbor’s doors. My nephew will have a homemade costume yet to be determined because his parents forgot until the last minute and now it’s too late to order stuff.
Second, what is the scariest movie (Indian or otherwise) you have ever seen?
The Innocents is one I saw at some film program when visiting a friend and it was TERRIFYING. For Indian films, I think probably Pari. The combination of jump scares and traditional horror with the metaphorical horror of violence against women is really spooky.
