Happy Wednesday! It is supposed to rain all day today, which I am going to take as a sign that I should stay home and do nothing productive. Perhaps write a new Ra.One review!
Reading: I need something interesting to read! I’m looking for something cozy and well-written, and nothing I see on my shelves on at the library is really sparking my interest. Any suggestions?
Watching: Oh! I have a non-Indian recommendation for you! I just finished “Recipes for Love and Murder”, a South African show available on Acorn/Britbox. It lightly deals with social issues in South Africa, has two sweet romances (one young and dear, and one middle-aged and slow), and is super sunny and bright and flowery. Highly recommended if you need a well-made pleasant sunny timepass. And if you like romance.
Thinking: Winter comes on so fast! I feel like I am playing catch-up getting ready. The boiler man came so the heat is on, and I got my space heater set up, and my sweaters out of storage. But I still haven’t put up insulated curtains by the draft windows or gotten my boots out of the closet or organized my winter coats. And by the time I have all that stuff done, it’s gonna be time to start with Christmas decorations.
Listening: Shahrukh Month! And I’ve been feeling Jab Harry Met Sejal-y.
Now, question for you! In honor of Shahrukh month and this rainy day, what is your happy safe rainy day SRK movie?
I think mine is JHMS! Partly because it is so new? SRK is so much part of my life and has been for almost 20 years now, that some of his older movies just make me feel wistful for different times in my life. So Om Shanti Om, for instance, has gone from being comfort food to being “oh I remember when I had just graduated college and my parents hadn’t sold the house yet and over Christmas me and my sister both came home and we were all cozy together”. But JHMS is, like, still current to my life as it is today. So that’s just pure joy.
