Anyway, this post is in response to all the blog lou that was showered upon me in the one week I have been missing. So in other terms, if it makes no sense, you asked for it. Thing is, if you notice, these are the first 2 weeks of the month, which in the life of someone who calls herself a Finance person, pretty much justify the paycheck she gets at the end. And for the sawaal of the paapi pet, have to be attended to.
Anyway, this is going no where, and I have started two paragraphs with anyway now. That can’t be good. For my readership that is. So, I will try being a little more interesting (!) now. We broke our movie fast last to last weekend, by watching 3 movies. I am going to copy Abi’s brilliant review mechanism, and give my verdict out here.
Shutter Island – Wow!
A-team – Meh
IHLS – Hmm, ok!
It is not that easy I note. So I will elaborate just a little bit. While Shutter Island is a must watch ( and must-like, else I will judge you, I will so judge you), A-team can be watched for the heck of it, it’s fun, and forgettable. IHLS was as expected, cute, timepass, a bit of a drag, and with music I had endorsed quite some time ago. And oh yes, I am impressed with Sonam Kapoor.
A lot of White Collar is being watched these days. It is not in the same league as Bones or Castle, but it is good anyway, so we are watching it. Plus, we don’t have a choice really. A lot of Whose line is it anyway is being watched too. Very very fun that is. And guess what? Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood are doing a show guess where? Yes! In Hyderabad. Only, I am dead sure the passes will be way beyond affordable. So we can just feel happy about the show happening, rather than for being able to watch it.
The hair has reached a disgusting half curly-half straight stage, and I am hating it. Happens every year, six years into the straightening. And now amount of hot irons can put it right. So I have decided to chop it off. Yes! No, it won’t make it any better, but then there will be less hair to straighten and handle no? Very smart idea this is I think.
Oh this should be interesting. The last weekend, we went to the Zoo. Yes, big adventure you say, wait till you hear more. So we go to the zoo, and we go to that small piece of land where there are two tigers. Small piece of land surrounded by water at a lower level, surrounded by wall which is as high as the land, but much higher than the water level, you get the drift? Anyway, so we are four people, ok five, ok four and a quarter, all looking at this tiger standing at the other end of the piece of land, and looking straight at us. Looking at us for sure, because there is no one else around. So I say “ Ooh, look it is looking at us” and The Dude says “ Let me click a pic”, and we all stand. When it crouches. Crouches in the true “I am going to run and leap at that deer looking at me” crouches. That is panic enough for even a brave soul like me, so I say “Let’s go” a thought reciprocated by the other 2 and a quarter people. But The Dude being The Dude, continues to click, when the tiger, decides to run. No, sprint, full speed, right towards us. And like any normal human beings, the three and quarter of us run! But no, The Dude continues to show his Dude-ness, and keeps clicking. So it sprints, reaches the corner and leaps. And falls right into the water. “Haha” The Dude says, “Obviously it won’t be able to jump across the water, Haha”. The tiger swims, looks around a bit and clambers back onto the land, and walks away. We look like idiots. Since then he has been going around telling all and sundry the story of his bravery, and how his wife deserted him in the face of danger. The BIL explains to him that it was in fact a good idea to do so, considering someone had to be around to use all the money made from that awesome picture he would have captured when the tiger leapt at him. Haha, very funny. Whatever.
I leave you with the two pictures he ‘risked’ his life for.
What? You want more? Oh, there is actually nothing left. But yes, if all goes well, there will be plenty of time in the next few days, and more time means more posts hopefully? Till then, manage with this? Please, pretty please?
