Happy Wednesday! I just gotta crawl a little bit further through the week. Alllllllllll most done. And then another week. And another week. And on and on. I miss my annual February vacation to a sunny place! Stupid winter.
Reading: Finished Shakuntala, because it is super super quick, moving on to Siva Purana!!! Which is just, like, all sex and violence. And sexy violence, or whatever you call it when someone’s nipple is cut off with a sword. Join me in the orgies!
Thinking: Dog poop! Albie Dog has his annual this morning and of course I am very stressed about his stool sample. I am pretty sure he will be non-parasitic this year (despite his deep love for roadkill and garbage) thanks to my obsessing over his monthly pills, but the stress of collecting a fresh sample is killing me. What if he just doesn’t want to poop this morning?
Watching: Oh! New thing in the rotation! My parents and I have started throwing in Bob Newhart with our nightly viewing. It’s nice, it’s clever, the 70s are weirdly soothing, and of course there is the joy of the Chicago references. Otherwise I’m still doing bad True Crime on my own (“Blood Ties: a Killer in the Family”) and Columbo with Mom and Dad.
Listening: It’s Abhishek Bachchan’s birthday week! And also, this song is very soothing and pretty.
Now, question for you! First, quick, who is sexier Shiva or Krishna?
Serious question! Shiva is kind of remote and ascetic and very Hippie and wise type. And Krishna is naughty and flirty and fun. Would you rather the Kunal Kapoor beautiful remote Siva? Or the naughty flirty fun Shahrukh Krishna?
Next question! Quick, who is sexier, Columbo or Jessica Fletcher?
I say Columbo! Jessica always felt a little too intellectual to me, while Columbo is fully human. So I guess I am a Krishna not a Shiva kind of person.
