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.
It’s my father’s birthday! 65, which I guess means I should do something very very big. Oh well, he’s getting a nice little thing from me and my sister and there is a family dinner planned, that should be good enough. And this post!
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.
Boy, after not much happening in October, the birthdays are coming fast and furious in November! Anyway, I can’t ignore Tabu!
Happy Shahrukh’s birthday again!!!!! Press conference going on now, but in the meantime I thought I would do a quick troll through twitter to see what else is out there and cute.
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?
It’s been November 2nd in India for ages, but it is just now turning over to November 2nd in Chicago. And so, on this magical minute, 52 presents Shahrukh has given me.
For your own convenience, here is a nice long listing of every single birthday post for the whole past month. Feel free to reread over and over again while you refresh twitter looking for his birthday message to us.
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)
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.
An actress who just a few years ago I wouldn’t have cared about, but somehow just recently she has become worthy of a birthday post. She really is the best part of a surprisingly large number of films!
Not very different from last year, but I feel like that’s nice, for the last few days, to always have the same thing. Because when you get to the very most important things about a person, not much changes year by year.
This is a very practical post. I assume that now is the time we are all finalizing our plans for Thursday? Well, this can be a place to discuss options!
Ha! I thought of something clever! Still just a silly post, but at least with a semi-clever theme. And I did both stills and videos, so that’s something new.
Raveena! Not remembered as much today as some of the other 90s actresses, but still worth a dozen reasons to love her on her birthday.
I tried to come up with something moderately meaningful for today, I really did. And then I gave up and decided to go with 8 coffee variations.
It’s his birthday month, and these are 9 reasons I love him, so this is not going to be a very critical post. Obviously. But if you love Shahrukh like I do, it may put some things into words that you have been wanting to say.
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).
I am sure you will all have Thoughts in the comments about what I should have included and did not, along with what I included and shouldn’t have, and various other changes I should have made. And that’s fine, think of this as just a starting point!
It’s October, and it’s the 13th post, let’s get spooky! And also sexy. And therefore Vampires!!!! 13 reasons Shahrukh might be a Vampire. Well, 7 reasons he could be, 6 reasons he probably isn’t.
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)
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.
