Happy Birthday to My Closest Friend!

NOT my best friend!!!!  She is pushing for that commitment, but I am holding film against it, because that is the kiss of death.  Once you say “best friend”, the relationship ends immediately (in my experience).  Like when celebrity couples get tattoos of each other (Saif and Kareena excepted).  But I will say “closest friend”.  And, weirdly, she has the exact same birthday as my father.  Which creates a little testing of loyalties every year as I try to schedule them around each other.  Also Mickey Mouse, but I never really do anything to celebrate him, so it doesn’t really effect my plans.

Happy Birthday Juhi Chawla!!!! A Dozen Reasons I Love You!!!

I feel bad only giving her a dozen, but on the other hand I am also taking time from visiting my sister to write this post, and using my sister’s stupid mac computer to do it (the mouse only has one button!  What is this MADNESS!), so that should count for something.  Oh well, next year I will give her 2 dozen reasons to make up for it.

Good morning!  Shahrukh waited to come out to greet his fans until I was awake, which was terribly considerate of him.  Well, for me.  Not for the poor fans who had been waiting all night and day.  But that’s just part of the November 2nd story, what else has been happening?

Happy Birthday Aish! My 12 Favorite Songs

Aish is not my favorite actress ever, or my favorite public persona person.  But on her birthday, I am going to follow a “if you can’t say anything nice…” policy, and just focus on her dancing, which is incredible.  She shows both Bharat Natyam training, and a really good ability to sell a dance onscreen.  So here are my 12 favorite Aish dances. (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)

Happy 1 Day to Shahrukh’s Birthday! The 1 Way He Makes Me Feel

Yaaaaaay!  For the 1 day, the final day, here is the 1 way that Shahrukh makes me feel.  And, okay, I’m going to go a bit over the top here, but I figure, if you’ve come with me this far, you feel the same way.  Plus, I’m all caught up in the holiday spirit!  And this is almost the same post I put up last year, but that’s just because my feelings haven’t changed since then.  There’s just a few more songs available to express them.

A light one after I got sucked in to two posts yesterday.  He jokes sometimes about how he is only working with 5 expressions, but we all know that is a joke, he is really a wonderful actor.  Although he also knows how to use his face in certain set ways that the fans love.  Here are my 10 favorites, feel free to add your own in the comments (reminder: no way to insert images from your computer, but if you can find them online, you can insert an image link by simply going down a line before and after.  It works best with a short link).

Yesterday I did “top characters“.  This is a post that pairs with it, top performances.  But is different, characters were wonderful people imagined by the script writer who Shahrukh was lucky to play.  These are characters that Shahrukh elevated through his performance. (part of this post is the same as last year, but most of it is new)

Happy 15 Days to Shahrukh’s Birthday!!!! 15 Best Characters He Has Played

Just to be clear, this is not best performances.  “Performances” would mean he brought something extra to the role.  Which of course he did, but here I want to focus on characters, characters as written in the script, who would have been interesting no matter who played them.
