Saturday Small Talk: Chat Away While I Finish ALL MY CHRISTMAS THINGS! Because I am BETTER THAN YOU

Happy Saturday! And 13 days before Christmas! And I am spending the day wrapping and mailing my final gifts, because I have finished all my Christmas things almost two weeks early. Which is a day sooner than last year. Next year, a full two weeks early! Give me another few years, I’ll be done with Christmas before Thanksgiving!

Things to talk about!

Yesterday was Dilip Kumar’s birthday! I did nothing to celebrate! What did you do (if anything)? Do you know who Dilip Kumar is? If so, what does he mean to you?

Vikrant Massay and Vijay Sethupathi are rumored to be co-starring in a movie by the director of Asoka that is a remake of a southern film about class inequities. In other words, producers are now lurking on the comments section of DCIB and making movies specifically to our taste. PRODUCERS OF INDIA!!!! LISTEN TO US!!!! MATURE SRK LOVE STORY!!!! MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!!

Vikrant Massey and Vijay Sethupathi to team up for Santosh Sivan's untitled  next?

Today is Rajinikanth’s birthday!!!! I am doing nothing to celebrate that either! What are you doing (if anything)? Do you know who Rajinikanth is? Should I repost my 101s today?

  1. Dilip Kumar=The guy who rocks the pencil moustache(in MeA)better than anybody.I would watch Kohinoor,that has Dilip and Meena Kumari.Doing wacky comedy as it was suggested by their therapists.Dilip being Dilip learnt to play a sitar for one song sequence,such was his perfectionism.
    I am not a fan of Rajini for some reason(maybe because he has a star factor which is subjective instead of the objective quality of films).He has a cunning way of pulling off characters much younger than his age though.

  2. I put in my big book order for my dad and his family today, and the Christmas cards we ordered arrived early, so pretty good I think. Tomorrow we decorate the tree, put in last gift orders, and start writing and addressing cards.

    I have nothing on Dilip or Rajnikanth. I’m excited for all promising new movies. Oh, and I did want to recommend The Great on Hulu now that I’ve seen more of it. It’s sharper and snarkier and both funnier and more brutal than The Crown, but still royalty and still centered on the queen – or rather empress – and how she learns to exercise power. The acting is tops all around.

    • I watched the great a few months back, and yes! It’s wonderful! Inaccurate in details, and in language and stuff, but very very accurate in terms of the shallowness of royalty and the madness of a royal court. I love that.

      I am impressed! Sounds like you have this holiday under control. How are gifts for the boys coming? My sister and I were always bad and mentioned things we decided we really really wanted at the last minute which through all the plans in an uproar. Are your kids steadier than that? Or else more able to accept disappointment?

  3. I’m kind of strict with them about gifts. We don’t really buy them anything except at Christmas and birthdays (excepting clothes and books). If they ask for something crazy expensive or that I just don’t want in my house – an iPad, a video game console – I tell them straight up that’s not going to happen. We talk openly about how much is a reasonable amount to ask family members like aunts and uncles to spend. And I also tell them there’s a cut off when they can’t change their minds. So their expectations are pretty measured. The main thing I have going for me is that they tend to forget a lot of the things they asked for, and it’s still a fun surprise to open on Christmas morning. Also, with Three Kings, if there’s anything they really wanted that we missed, we have a do over.

    • Three Kings is a genius do-over. My sister and I both have summer birthdays, so if we miss asking for something at Christmas, we have to wait a whole 6 months to get it.
