Happy Valentine’s Day! From Me and Albie Dog!!!!

Happy Valentine’s Day! By golly I am having an SRK and Valentine’s party, even if it is virtual. Every year for 10 years, I have had a Valentine’s and SRK party (sometimes it is 6 people and cake, sometimes it is me and a friend and a heart shaped pizza), and I am not giving up this year! This afternoon we are virtually watching the Letterman special and then talking about how he is the Perfect Man. The way the holiday should be celebrated.

Two Crowdsource Requests: Movies for BollywoodNewbie to Watch on Her Plane Trip, and Romances for Valentine’s Week

These are equally important questions and I don’t want you to be lazy and just do one or the other! So if you comment, you have to give at least one idea for BOTH! So it can be like 10 movies for BollywoodNewbie, and only 1 for Valentine’s, or vice versa, but at least try to cover both.

Prepare for Valentine’s Day! Here is a List of Movies for an Anti-Romance Marathon!!!!

Join me, and use this list as viewing suggestions. The movies that make you think “I’m so glad I am single”. And yes, they are all about men sucking and girls being awesome. Whatever, boys can watch every other movie if they want to feel happy within themselves, it’s harder for women.
