Happy Wednesday!!! I am still up at the lake house, but being lazy. So all I am doing is sitting on the couch/porch watching the lake. Still better than being in the city!
Watching: Finished the first season of Loki, that was a trip! And the new season of Modern Miss Fisher, still recommend it. And in the middle of watching Toofan, yes I will be reviewing it.
Reading: I’m dabbling in Ngaio Marsh. She’s fun, your standard 1930s gentleman detective who works for Scotland Yard kind of stories, but well-written and good mysteries and stuff. And very soothing, as these books always are, because the worst thing that happens is a murder but then the murderer is caught and life goes back to normal.
Thinking: I am psyching myself up for hosting this Saturday. I invited a co-worker up to the lake house with her two kids, 10 and 9, who have been trapped in house arrest for the past year and a half (her son is a transplant survivor so they really can’t do ANYTHING). I am anticipating an enormous burst of energy and emotion as the excitement of seeing people who are not-relatives at a place that is not-home comes upon them. It’s gonna be like trying to steer a car without brakes.
Listening: Himesh Resha-whats-it’s birthday is coming up! I really like his soundtrack for Son of Sardaar.
Now, question for you! First, for those of you with children, beyond having lots of caffeine and preparing my interested “yes, show me again how you can stand on your head/count to 100/run really fast” face, what else should I do to prepare to be the exciting non-parental adult?
Second, it’s Naseerji’s birthday week!!! What is your favorite Naseerji movie/performance?
I like Asambhav! It’s a big dumb action movie with Arjun Rampal and Priyanka Chopra and Naseerji and Tom Alter get to play aging gangsters and best buddies and you can see they are just having the BEST time.
