Saturday Small Talk: Chat Away While I Have a Lazy Day

Happy Saturday!!!! I am so glad to have a nothing weekend. Especially today, I can just do my puzzle and watch TV and be cozy. And probably close the laptop most of the day too.

Things to talk about!!!

Should we talk about the Harry and Meghan interview? Or not? I haven’t watched it, nor have I really followed any of the lead up or follow up stories, but if y’all want to talk about it, go at it!

It’s Rani’s birthday tomorrow!!!!!!!!!! We MUST celebrate! Truly a joyous day. Share your Rani memories, wishes, hopes, dreams, etc. Personally, I didn’t really like her in the movies I saw at first. I came into the movies in the Hum-Tum, Chalte Chalte, Saathiya era and it felt like she was always playing the same “perfect” smart ambitious career woman. And then I saw Bunty Aur Babli, and that’s when I fell in love with her. And went back to Badal and she was so FUN!!!! I think she just has this incredible approachable earthiness onscreen that no one can compare to.

And anything else you want to talk about! I need a day to just breath, so I will be off the air-ish. Although I also kind of want to write about Clueless after it came up in the comments.

  1. Happy spring day! We’re going to the park to celebrate my oldest kid’s 11th birthday with a couple friends. He doesn’t usually have park parties, but pandemic. Better than last year at least when we canceled his party and hunkered down at home, but kind of a bummer to have another not quite party. He’s fine with it, though! We got a bunch of donuts in lieu of cake, and he’s psyched to see his friends. For me, this is the first birthday that officially makes me feel old.

    I love that K3G with the royals. It does feel like a soap opera. If you’re mildly curious and not really into monarchies like me, this column in the Irish Times was the most entertaining.

  2. Read your Hello Brother post, hilarious. And your Queen Rani post, so clever.

    I’m a little behind on DCIB but managed to catch up today and want to recommend a Mira Nair film I watched last night, The Namasake (2006). It’s based on the Jumpa Lahiri book which, BTW, I read and didn’t like. Did you know she moved to Italy and writes in Italian now. Without much improvemeny, I’m afraid. Namesake cuts thru all of Lahiri’s endless prose and tells the chronological story of an Indian family in America in effiient, touching scenes. Irrfan of course is magnificently understated and moving. Tabu was a joy to watch as always, and the young actor who played the son, Kal Penn (Kalpen Suresh Modi) held his own against the megastars. I didn’t know until I looked him up that he was a member of the Obama administration.
    It’s on Amazon if anybody’s looking for a wonderful film that can stir but also relax.

    • I have to confess I haven’t seen The Namesake, but I’ve heard wonderful things about it.
