A hattrick of sad movies

Which made me cry. But not in the sense the song meant. Despicable me was the better one, although a little too kiddy for my taste. I liked the title, the protagonist. Aisha was good only for the clothes. Predator I enjoyed before the interval but later it got to me.

Vrindavan

Went to Vrindavan on Saturday with mom. Found it a little too commercial, crowded and filled with monkeys. Liked one temple from where I could see the Yamuna. Otherwise I mostly minded the slippers and didn’t mind doing that at all. A monkey grabbed my shades but couldn’t make off with them. Mom’s missing the hat I got for her from Singapore and her shades. Feel like doing more of these short trips.

Phantasy

Did some proofing yesterday. The content was interesting but the attention to detail that was required kind of killed the pleasure. Creativity was not needed in checking whether grammatical rules were adhered to or not. I wonder whether my friend will find it all that she thinks it will be. ANother one bites the dust. looks like the thing we do for eight hours is unlikely to be fun for all those eight hours whatever you do. Boredom or anxiety, take your pick.

Peepli Live

I liked Peepli Live more than Once upon a Time in Mumbai. Both have a documentary feel but Peepli Live makes you want to know what happens next. The acting is fresh and excellent. Very natural. I liked the music too. Budhia’s entrapment is funny in a satirical way.

Women And Reduction (WAR)

Seem to be the lone soldier I know from my gender. It’s an uphill battle, but feels good after working out. It has been alleged that i am obsessing too much about weight loss. That weight loss talk is boring. I would like to learn something new but until that happens, I will be happy if I can shed excess weight. I must admit, it was a relief not to watch what I ate when mom had visited. A holiday of sorts for me too. Although I did gain weight. Surprisingly, the scales say that I have lost a kilo now! My coach feels I have put on though. Maybe it’s the guilt, but I agree with him. Feeling very sleepy thanks to a phone conversation when I should have been sleeping. Walked back from the gym too because the driver was ill. Bought giant apples which are a pain to eat.
