Merry Christmas Eve!!! Grand Finale of the Christmas Season, Give Me Your Address and I Will Send You a Card!!!!

Happy Christmas Eve!  Like many households, we are celebrating with the annual Fight Over Whether Or Not to Go to Midnight Services.  It’s so cold!  And so late!  Is candlelight carol singing really worth it?  Or do we split the difference and either drive instead of walking, or go to the cheating 10:30pm service?  At least it gives us a nice topic of conversation for the next 12 hours

Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me the Week of Zero????

HAPPY SHAHRUKH MOVIE RELEASE WEEK!!!!!!!!  The most wonderful week of the year!  And blessed is the year in which it occurs more than once (2017).  This has been a long hard slog, getting through 2018 with no release AT ALL for more than 12 months.  But the dark time is finally over!  Light is coming!  Our Lord and Savior will arrive again on December 21!  And I guess also on December 25th, for those who follow other faiths.

The FanFic MKP and I Wrote in the Comments for Fawad Khan’s Birthday

I tried to skip a week of fanfic, but apparently I can’t and I will always get sucked in against my will.  So here is the fanfic MKP and I wrote in the comments of the Fawad Khan birthday post, inspired by a discussion of how most of the time he looks truly other worldly in his beauty.

Silly Sunday Christmas ReRun! Christmas Lights Action film, Christmas Tree Farm Rural Feud, and Sexy SRK-Rani Mistletoe Mature Romance

Happy first Sunday of Advent!  Naturally, I had to do a Christmas themed post (to match my Christmas themed TGIF post).  I briefly considered doing unmarried mothers in honor of Mary, but then I decided to think small instead and use the random small items of Christmas as jumping off points for story ideas.

Silly Sunday: The Christmas Story, in a Hindi Movie Trilogy

I’m excited about this!  In spitballing back and forth in the comments on last week’s post (which was more about Christmas as a festival of lights and social experience and sexy holiday romance), it was suggested that I should just do the whole story.  And I think I can!  If I break it into 3 bits.

Christmas Means Hope: Why I Find That in Hindi Film

I wrote a silly thing for Sunday using Christmas traditions for fanfic.  And I put up a fanvid post, and I am doing a Christmas Card giveaway.  All of that is kind of silly and superficial, it may seem as though I don’t take the holiday seriously.  Or maybe I do, but I don’t find anything in it that can overlap with my Hindi film love.  And that’s not the case, so I want to write some posts about why Christmas is so important to me, and how it wraps itself around every part of my life, including the films I watch.

New Youtube Video! How Release Dates Effect Film Performance

Mostly I wanted to do a video to play with my new toy, moviemavengal gave me a lapel mic as an early Christmas present.  I think it works pretty well!  The video is too sunny and my head isn’t exactly centered, but by golly the microphone is perfect!

Silly Sunday: Christmas Themed! Lights and Trees and Mistletoe and SRK

Happy first Sunday of Advent!  Naturally, I had to do a Christmas themed post (to match my Christmas themed TGIF post).  I briefly considered doing unmarried mothers in honor of Mary, but then I decided to think small instead and use the random small items of Christmas as jumping off points for story ideas.

TGIF: Happy Christmas and World AIDs Day! Women (and a few men) in Red

Happy Friday!  My goodness this has been a frustrating day.  The second I get in to anything at work the phone rings and I have to stop.  Whether it is blogging or sending an email or doing accounting stuff for work-work, I just don’t have long enough to be able to focus on it.  I am writing this right now at about 2pm, we’ll see if I am able to finish and publish this thing before midnight.  Anyway, Red!  For AIDs and Christmas!!!
