You know Dina? Who I used to do the podcasts with and who I always see movies with on Friday nights? Her birthday is this week, and I won’t be able to give her her present beforehand, so instead she will have to make do with this theme post.
I put this post up almost a year ago originally, but I feel it is a came with limitless possibilities, so we can always play it again. Plus, not all of you were commentators back then, you missed out on the fun!
Well, this is a ridiculous post. Inspired by my finding a photo of the most evil puppy I have ever seen. Clearly a super villain in training.
Happy Good Friday! Posting this super early this week, because I know a lot of offices are closing early for the holiday. And I also now that at least some of you are dealing with holiday stress and could really really use the distracting. And so, welcome to my second annual Jesus themed TGIF post. Designed to make you declare “Yes indeed, he is RISEN!!!!”
My second TGIF! For the birthday girl. And I am sleepy (Dog got me up again last night, and there is STILL no adoption on the horizon), so I am going to be lazy: Rani Mukherjee Holding Things.
Well, this is a puzzle! Emraan’s birthday tomorrow and Rani’s on Wednesday, who gets top honors on the TGIF posts? I can’t decide, so I am splitting it, Emraan first and then Rani.
Happy Friday! The end of Aamir/Alia abbreviated week! And, of course, they get to have this weeks TGIF post. But they have to share it between them.
Oh boy, this is a fun one! I’ve been saving it for a special occasion. Indian women looking fabulous in saris.
I put this together for last year’s women’s day, and it was so good I had to repost and expand it. My first thought for International Women’s Day was a “look at these pretty women!” post, but I already did that. So, I’m going to go a little deeper. International Women’s Day is supposed to be about men respecting women. Doesn’t always work, of course, but that’s the idea. And so I want to put up some pictures of men being happily dominated by women
This is TGIF, it’s supposed to be a happy post. So no grieving here, just celebration of life. A big part of which was her clothes, remember how she was the best dressed at Anushka’s reception? And what we can learn from her, both in what clothes we want to wear, and the attitude we want to have when we wear them.
This is a very very very specific post. Our nice commentator/friend Angie got Maddy to read and retweet my Breathe reviews, so in return I shall give her a nice theme TGIT post. That theme being “here are all the men you like in a variety of outfits and poses”. And then on tomorrow I will do a “normal” TGIF post that more than one reader will enjoy.
First, if you are in a grumpy “I hate romance and love and couples!” mood, that is your right, and you should go watch Anjaam and look at yesterday’s “men in wet shirts” post. But if your mood is more “falala, happiness and flowers and my boyfriend/husband is so awesome!”, then this will just serve to increase that feeling. Or, alternatively, if you are in a sort of miserable “there are no happy couples or true love in the world” vibe, this will convince you that is false. Also, I have a clear and declared winner for the Best Couple Award, you will have to convince me out of it.
I was going to do a bonus fanfic, but judging by view count, the TGIF posts are more popular, so I’m doing that instead. And a nice Valentine’s one, for us to recover from all the romance and coupliness of yesterday.
Also in honor of my friend who’s baby is arriving any day now!!!!! Anyway, BABIES!
I hate making women battle against each other! So just take it as a given that both Preity and Urmila are awesome and gorgeous and so on and so on. But let us determine in particular cases, who is more awesome and gorgeous?
Building off of the list I put together for the 2017 Best of DCIB Awards, here is your completely TGIF index!
The final (and most important) awards post: Awards for ME!!!!! I am a guaranteed winner, because I am only competing against myself. But let’s see what I won FOR! Oh, and the most exciting news, thanks to these posts I have a good start on indexing the TGIF and FanFic posts, so look for those indexes to be going up sometime soon.
Also, all women in pink! Because I want to see if I can make joyomama’s head explode in the comments (for those who don’t know, regular commentator joyomama is a fashion historian who writes about gender color preference). Oh, and also because I’ve gotten a couple of people pushing back against the standard TGIF. So no objectification and no men and no SRK in this one!
I completely forgot our southerners last week, and I am doing an all-Hindi “Best of 2017” contest, so I really feel like I need to make up for it. And the best way I can is an Entire Post of Southern Gentleman. In their native garb.
It’s a pun! Do you get it? Because it is men who are smoking hot, and also actually smoking, like smoking cigarettes. Okay, so it’s kind of a lame theme, but I still have holiday brain, and who knows, maybe seeing all of these photos of themselves will inspire some of these guys to make it a New Year’s resolution to stop smoking.
(A special treat, a second updated and reposted TGIF today! For Christmas!) I am sure if I wanted to google “sexy Santa” I could find it. But I don’t want to do that. So instead, I am going to limit myself to one Santa-like element, and look for beards. Sexy men with beards.
This is a re-posted post, but I don’t have time for a new one because I have to run around and go to Tiger Zinda Hai with my family (I think Salman would approve of both seeing his new movie and the family time). And anyway, I don’t think it is possible to improve on the post I did for his birthday last year.
