Saturday Small Talk: Chat Away While I Show Off Albie Dog’s Halloween Costume to a Series of Friends

Happy Saturday! I have such a busy day planned! I “casually” reached out to a bunch of friends who all leave near each other suggesting a walk, but secretly just wanting them to see Albie Dog in his Halloween costume and tell me that my dog is the best dog. Albie doesn’t know it, but he’s going to spend most of the morning looking like a little flower.

Friday Classics: Pyaar Mein Twist, Cute Cute Cute Cute Cute

Thanks to a conversation in the comments with Alicia/Bollywood Newbie, I went back and watched this movie again, and it is sooooooooooooo much cuter than I remembered.  Really just adorable.  Oh, and also kind of unique and groundbreaking in the sort of story it tells.

Friday Classics: Happy Independence Day! Rang De Basanti

Oh boy, I really do not want to write this post!  But it was a special request, and it really feels like something I HAVE to do the Friday before Independence Day.  But I refuse to watch this movie one more time (ha!) because it makes me way way too sad.  So be aware, this will all be based on memories from like 4 years ago, the last time I felt masochistic enough to watch it. (I’ve written on this film before, and promised then that it wouldn’t be the last post. You can read it here)
