I should be at work right now but I made a bad decision yesterday: I ate something I shouldn’t have and here I am, enjoying my extended weekend.
Since I have plenty of time to waste and no way of going out, I’ve decided to watch a Bollywood movie. I had so many to pick from but I wanted an oldie so Kuch Kuch Hota Hai it was.
The movie stars Kajol, Rani Mukerji, Shah Rukh Khan and a lot of ’90 fashion. In fact there was so much ’90 fashion it was actually embarrassing at one point.
This movie was a big hit back in its day. It has all the elements of a Bollywood hit: a love triangle, tragedy, children and songs. Quick summary:
During their college years, Anjali (Kajol) was in love with her best-friend Rahul (Shah Rukh Khan), but he had eyes only for Tina (Rani). Years later, Rahul and the now-deceased Tina’s eight-year-old daughter attempts to reunite her father and Anjali.
I liked the movie, it was fun to watch but there were so many moments when I felt like Bollywood would incorporate anything in movies without taking in consideration if actors can do it or not. I almost stopped watching the movie after the first basketball scene between Rahul (Shah Rukh Khan) and Anjali (Kajol). I’m not asking for perfection from a Bollywood movie, but at least make them practice till a decent scene is shot.
It was clear they never played basketball until this movie…
It was an OK movie. I really can’t complain, I wanted something to fill up my time and the movie did it. I must admit I skipped some parts of the movie (songs, or the running in the rain scenes) because it was a bit tiresome, but over all it was good. I got to see a Kajol and Shah Rukh Khan movie, so that was nice as well.
This was a nice weekend. It might’ve been gloomy, I might’ve been lazy but it was a nice weekend altogether. Not even the constant rain could dampen the mood. In fact it was awesome that it rained, we cuddled in bed with Marlanu’ while we watched TV.
We had pizza, went to the park, went out with family and for the first time ever we saw 2 movies in a roll at the mall. We saw 2 Guns and Riddick 2. The movies were great and all, but I am starting to hate going to the mall to watch a movie. There is always someone that hits my seat, or multiple people speaking on their phone or even speaking in general.
It’s annoying and I feel like going Hulk on them. I can dream, can I?
Still, it was funny. I also noticed that I was the only one there that didn’t gave a rats ass about appearance. There was me: jeans, sneakers, a baggy sweater and no make-up and then there was everyone else. Sometimes I think I pay to much attention to this, but its weird being the only one with a fresh face and not dressed to impress. I even get crazy ideas like I am a slob and that’s why I’m the only one. I can’t be the only one, can I?
Oh well, I will live.
This was an awesome weekend, and something tells me that it will be a while till we repeat the experience.
Besides cleaning, watching movies, going to the country side and visiting family there’s nothing new to report.
My weekends are pretty slow and uneventful. I cannot complain about them since its too hot to do anything else. My only consolation is that Summer will end soon and Autumn will come. The weather will be nicer and my mood to be productive will come back. I haven’t stitched anything in the last two months, I barely finished a book or two, and my Japanese is going pretty slow.
But I am proud of me for taking pictures. I am using Instagram a bit more than I should but its a fun way to make my days better.
Tomorrow I am going back to driving school. That and university will start again.
I’ll have a full schedule again.
That sounds so nice. Being busy sounds really nice to me at the moment. I don’t know why, but I had this feeling for the last 2 weeks. It feels that I don’t do anything and I’m not getting anywhere. It’s a sad feeling, but I’m guessing I’m just restless.
Until then I shall enjoy taking pictures of Summer at the country side. The city life is a bit dull at the moment.
There are times when staying in seems like heaven and times when being out is just awesome.
This weekend we were outdoors people. We just went to the park, drove around, went to the country side and so on. The only time spent at home was early in the morning enjoying out coffee and late at night watching a movie or just preparing for bed.
We didn’t do much but it felt like a full day. It was fun and relaxing, away from any annoyance we might have in the city (traffic, annoying people and so on). That and we had the chance of playing with our new puppy from the country side.
She is really sweet and funny. She would make a great apartment dog since she’s small and house trained but she’s better of at the country side where she can run and do almost all she wants anytime she wants. That and we have two other dogs there so she’ll always have company.
Finally we went to the countryside. It was about time considering we haven’t been there in a very long time.
It wasn’t anything special. We had lunch, played with the cat, fed the rabbits and just enjoyed the peace and quiet. Seriously, you could only hear the birds and the wind.
It was so nice!
What can I say, I’m really happy that Summer came. There is one thing that I would like to do on the next payday. I would like to go on a drive for the entire day and just stop somewhere and have lunch. I would really love that!
But it will take a little bit longer before that will happen. Till then, here are the rabbits.
There are 3 other white, but they have underground tunnels and most of them go there to cool down or sleep without being bothered.
There are actually 3 generations there. But the oldest one, Vera, doesn’t like to be photographed. They were really funny when we gave them fresh grass. Rabbits are cute when they eat.
And there there’s the cat. I don’t think my father was ever so attached to a cat like he is to this one. This cat, as fluffy and nice as it looks, is a real killer. Everyday a mouse/rat dies because of him.
And yet, he’s the sweetest thing when he comes in contact with humans. The fact that we were eating meat with more meat doesn’t have anything to do with his attitude. Nope, he just loves us like that.
It was nice.
I wish the weekend would come faster, but its barely Tuesday so another 4 days of hard work and then just one day off. Well, I did have a 3 day weekend, I can’t actually complain.
