Happy Easter! I am going to try to convince my parents to make tissue paper eggs and put them up on the windows. And also, as is traditional, sleep in and skip church (thank goodness my church is doing Zoom services, Easter Sunday wouldn’t be the same without that little zing of sinful sloth).Continue reading
Well, not “millennial”, Design for Living was almost 100 years ago, and there is the whole complicated Duchess of Devonshire-Lady Elizabeth Foster-Duke of Devonshire thing. But I guess the word “throuple” is new, so that’s something my generation has contributed to relationships.Continue reading
Silly post, but I just got an email from the animal shelter foster listserve I am on and I have to share a joke with you. (Don’t worry, it’s a highly funded no-kill shelter, these little guys will get adopted in no time)
It’s Monday, I feel the need for a distraction from work. And anonymous and I have just been discussing an important issue that I feel deserves the full attention of us all: Is Jimmy Shergill or Jugal Hansraj better in Mohabbatein?

I’ll be seeing Padmavat tonight, mainly because I haven’t been able to go see a movie in a while, and here it is. A large part of the reason it will no doubt get a big box office, here it is and there hasn’t been anything else for a long time. And also, my friend Dina is free to go with me and I haven’t seen her in almost a month. But, to counteract what I am beginning to hear about Padmavat, I am going to give us a little reminder of all the wonderfully strong female characters that there have been in Hindi film, and all the wonderful historical Muslim characters there have been.
This is just the happiest movie! Crazy goofy happy. I watched it while feeling kind of down (no reason, didn’t get enough sleep the night before, that kind of thing), and it perked me right up! Highly recommend it next time you need a shot of happiness.
Happy Easter! I am going to cut up cardboard in the basement with my Sunday School class, and then maybe have brunch with Grandpa afterwards to celebrate. Oh, and eat the chocolate bunny that my parents gave me. And also, think about the most Easter-y of all Indian films, Amar Akbar Anthony!
