I am sorry babalog. I think this is close to the end of things as we know it, this blog as we know it. Apparently, I have lost the ability to write anything interesting (to me you freaks! ME! If you don’t find anything interesting per se, do not rub it in). And I am worried that this might actually be the demise of my almost senior citizen blog. What? One blog year = 6 human years no?
Anyway, the past two weeks had me drafting a number of posts. One almost serious letter to Zo. I mean do I have no shame about what my daughter will think of me when she grows up? Her Mummy doesn’t do serious. Her mummy is the one who pulled a muscle in her leg when she jumped in a very Juhi Chawla-from-yore sort of way, just because it made her (by which I mean Zo, not me, I am a lovesick mommy, not insane) giggle. One heartfelt review of Highway, which read like someone swallowed Mihir Fadnvasis’ review (by the way, my new favorite critic), and then puked all over my page. Same content (and lou, so much lou), but blah to the extent of grossness. And the others, not even worth mentioning.
But none of them made to this page. Which makes me worry. And leads to some very important questions. Am I actually thinking about the content of the blog? Do I honestly believe that there is some sort of tone, or theme this blog has which needs to be maintained? Am I really that disillusioned? Do I have any more crutch words I can use here? Should I make coffee cake this weekend or stick to chocolate walnut?
Before I lose track, let me mention that I did not spend any time trying to answer these questions. Instead, I decided to write anyway, write again, and hope it all adds up to a post. Which is what you are reading, if you are.
Anyhoo, now that there is a post, and we are writing it, I think it makes sense to mention the very much enjoyable visit to BbQ Nation that was made last weekend. I first went to the place when the pricing was, well, let me just say less than half of what it is now? And subsequently, when it was 2/3rds. This time, as a prep, I went into total starvation mode before I set foot in to devour all things awesome. And for once, did SO much justice. Picture this. 9 desserts on the buffet. ALL consumed. After infinite rounds of grilled pieces of heaven. And multiple rounds of the Cajun-spiced potatoes (special mention).
I also need to mention that after a lo-o-ong time, The Dude and I watched 4 movies over 5 weekends (one skip because we were in heavenly Kashid, where we owned the beach, Owned it. Muhahahaha. No, seriously, there was no one on those pristine beaches but the 3 of us, from 4 30 until 7 PM. Bliss is this.). Yeah, so about the movies, 4 movies in 4 weekends in town is big people. Very big. Mean, as parents, but big. And I am loving it. getting addicted to it.
As I type this, I am wondering what movie to watch this weekend, because I have one in mind. But technically it’s The Dude’s turn to pick. But I want to watch it anyway. I will need to lure him. Actually the actress in the movie will do that job ‘cos he is a fan. The good (and bad) thing is I don’t need to pre-book anything anymore, because there are 23 (Twenty Three, that’s right) screens at walking distance from my place, which play 40-60 shows of movies like Dhoom 3. This is a fact. Anyway, that’s good because, you can plan spontaneously, and bad because you can plan spontaneously. Which means I cannot trick The Dude by pre-booking movies I know will get pathetic ratings from critics but I want to watch anyway because come on! No reason. Just.
Wow. Look at that. Just look at that. That whole thing hardly took anytime and worked so well for me. I mean seriously, words are just flowing out and I am typing away and I am not having to stop and it is awesome but looks like it makes sense to stop now and now I cannot which is not cool but that’s how it works I guess you can’t have it all. Stop.
So here we are. Ladies, and Gentleman, without any further delay, let me present to you, the post. Apparently, this blog is not closing down after all, because there is a post. This post. As for the questions, I think I already have an answer to the one which matters most.
