Happy Wednesday!!! And Happy September!!! I am so glad to have made it to fall, my Favorite season. Especially this year when summer was so super super oppressively hot, and I had to move 3 times.
Watching: Finally watched Mimi, watched Haseena Dillruba at Friend Movie Night for a second time last week. First time, it was a massive hit. Second time, too dark for everyone. Tastes differ I guess. I promised a super SUPER light and happy movie tonight to make up for it. Oh, and I watched a new 5 part documentary on Children of God which is interesting if you like cults, and also if you are trying to puzzle out if it is possible that make Katrina Kaif was raised in the group.
Reading: Ngaio Marsh Inspector Allyn mysteries, highly recommend. If you like Christie, PD James, and Dorothy Sawyers, you will like these. Also, in my podcast world, listening to lots of BBC investigation serials. British accents and awful crimes, such a soothing combination while driving around doing a million moving errands.
Thinking: Thank goodness the heat broke! I truly thought moving in and unpacking was going to be beyond me, and then the heat broke and I stopped feeling faint whenever I went into the unairconditioned box rooms and now it’s all possible. New theory, I have to unpack 3 boxes before coffee/work and at least 5 boxes every day. Not gonna worry about the big picture, just focus on accomplishing those little goals and keep moving forward.
Listening: Ignoring podcasts while driving (the Amazon return hub is SO FAR AWAY!), I’ve also been listening to Kal Ho Na Ho since our watchalong. The soundtrack is so good!
Now, question for you! Yesterday was Rajkummar Rao’s birthday, what is your favorite Rajkummar Rao performance?
Just in terms of performance, Talaash! He plays Aamir Khan’s awkward second in command, I’m not even sure if his character has a name, but his confused patient presence observing Aamir’s descent into eccentricity adds a whole other layer to the film! Especially on rewatches. A less skilled and hardworking actor would have just strolled through this tiny part, but Rajkummar brings it to life.
