Happy Saturday!!! It’s actually a family “viewing”, but it will probably take most of the day so y’all have to talk amongst yourself.
Things to talk about!
It’s National Cookie Day! What is your favorite cookie in the whole world?
I’ve got two, both of which I may never have again. In the town where I grew up, there was this little French bakery/cafe that opened when I was a kid. We were regulars, and eventually when I was in high school my Mom got a job there waitressing. And they had a speciality of a chocolate cherry cookie, chocolate chips and dried cherries. With subtle bits of almond and butter and good things (for real, their pastry chef had a degree from France and stuff. Everything they made was just a little extra good). Anyway, now I’d have to drive 4 hours for the cookie so I will probably never have it again.
And second, my Grandma’s best friend/mother of my Dad’s childhood best friend was Swedish and used to make these divine Swedish butter cookies that were like eating air. She’d give a tin to Grandma every year at Christmas and we would all dig it out and gobble them down. But now, unless I track down her daughters and ask for a copy of the recipe, I will never get to eat those cookies again. And it probably wouldn’t be the same even if I had the recipe.
Every movie is releasing!!!!
The floodgates have opened! And I am overwhelmed. Bob Biswas, Bunty Aur Babli 2, Sooryavanshi, Antim, and now Tadap. All these films that were in production back in 2019, finally coming out. And RRR and 83 and Pushpa are coming out soon. Which movie are you excited about? Which, if any, should I try to see in theaters?
It’s Javed Jaffrey’s birthday! Quick, which do you like better, Oh Darling Yeh Hai India or Bang Bang? I am, of course, a Bang Bang girl all the way!
