apologies for being mia for so long. i was simply lazy. also tv's pretty good this time of the year. and i've had

the sundance channel for free for the longest time. they realized their mistake a couple of days ago and took it away. sniff.

in happy news i had some excellent bread today. mother and i were just discussing how awesome this particular loaf of bread was. we're saving its name and we're going to try to go back to the store every tuesday around 5 ish to look for this wonderful bread. we really really like this bread. it's our discovery of the week when it comes to food products. also it helped that i ate it with real butter today. not margarine. not i can't believe it's not butter. real butter. after the longest time too. most excellent it was.

you know who makes delicious bread and butter? koshys in bangalore. they make their own bread and their slices are very generous and they cut off the sides so you don't have to. also they have delicious ketchup. do you find that you go to places just for the condiments? like wendys here for example has good ketchup. that and they're thoughtful enough to have the little pumps so u don't have to struggle to open the damn packets. plus half the ketchup remains inside the packet anyway because u don't want to get it all over your fingers. i had this friend in bangalore who would go to kfc on brigade road [it used to be the only one in the city back then] just to eat their ketchup. we don't talk anymore this friend and i but back then we got really excited together about a lot of really stupid things. things that almost nobody else got. our favourite thing to discuss for example was this one c grade movie starring fardeen khan and this actress whose name i can't remember. the acting was just so bad we truly believed there had been a huge mistake and that somehow the wrong copy had been released. it seemed like all the scenes were first takes. many hours were spent giggling about said movie. we hadn't even watched it together so the moment we discovered our mutual fascination for the movie it was just incredible. i believe the moment happened during one of bandopadhya aka sofa pant's lectures on whateverthefuck it was he taught us. business material or something really random and useless. my friend would finish with her toi crossword and me with the bangalore times. then we'd hide under our gigantic ledger books and discuss how strange the movie was followed by theories on where they'd found this week's chandrika face of the week.

in entertainment news i watched he's just not that into you and it's very fun. also pink panther is kinda fun too. i can listen to steve martin's fake french accent all day. i wish they'd find someone to dub for aishwarya though. i think it would make her appear less annoying.

anyone watch dev d yet? it's not showing here. i cant believe it. i've checked every possible theater.

also my hottie wyatt cenac is starring in a new movie. see see.

and it looks like our anoop desai made it to top 36 on idol. yay for him. they didn't show much of him today but from what i saw i think he was wearing a white kurta and a very sad looking scarf. boy needs makeover pronto. call me. plus with this frieda pinto showing up everywhere looking fabulous the standards have been raised for desi people everywhere. yes we can people.

in work news they laid off a bunch of people. remember r? yeah that will not be necessary anymore. disco and i wish him luck in his future endeavours. good thing he was a full time banker/part time hooker. i kid. i kid.

in commuter watching do u check people out in traffic? i do. everyday. not in a i hope to meet the future love of my life at one of these lights kind of way. i just think it's interesting to watch peoples' expressions on their way back from work. lots of yawny stretchy people. way too many zombie looking people and if you're lucky the occasional head bobber. i like when there's hand movement along with the head bobbing to music i cannot hear but can totally imagine. i like the evening people way better than the morning people. morning people be crazy. also most mornings i'm running late so i don't have time to be checking people out. i have lip gloss to locate in gigantic purse. also appropriate cd to locate based on current mood and weather conditions. i multitask at signals in the morning. also i'm generally in a better mood on the way back home than on the way to work and maybe everyone else is too so it's a funner exercise that time of the day.

alright i feel the need for more delicious bread. this is so weird. i hate bread. muah.

ah so the pink panther is no good? im kinda disappointed, was looking forward to catch it sometime.

Glad to have you back! Pink panther's released? Must watch. I loved Steve Martin's fake French accent. And agree with you about Ms. Rai. She sucks. Infact, the only invention that could concievably make her less annoying has been out of use for a couple of centuries (a nifty French gadget called the guillotine).

Everyone's raving about Dev D though I have yet to meet anyone who's actually watched it. Seems that kind of movie. The music is a big favorite with my younger son

Gradwolf said...

Oh no one at the lights looked back at you? Oh my God, the look people give back from insides of their car in this country. It is scary you know...

OK is the Fardeen Khan one his debut with Meghna Kothari in Prem Aggan/ hahahhahah the one where they both ride off a cliff in a bike or something and fall in love? And she wears those really small tight shorts? Ok I'm laughing so much at the memory that I'm going to be so disappointed if it's not that.

Dev D was good, I liked. I liked the character of Chanda, very racy. Yenjaii.

Pri said...

girlonthebridge: no but i remember the movie you're talking about. i remember the short shorts and i think i might even remember some very strange dancing that accompanied the short shorts. the movie i was talking about stars the very talented rima sen.

shenoy:omg no we don't want to chop her head off. it is a pretty head. your son has very good taste. the album is good.

gradwolf: what are you driving around topless listening to mmmm bop?

sanjana: no beta. i said it was good. hysterical even in parts.

Anna Bond said...

imdb is blocked in office for me, but lemme take a guess here: Is it a classic called "Hum ho gaye aapke"?
If it is, ROTFL!!
I bow to thee (and thy friend)

And yea, Steve Martin's french just cracks me up :)

guess who's back? well.. atleast try since u can even read my name!

how art thou woman?

1. by 'being mia' do u mean ur pregnant?

2. koshy's dont got no good bread. its daily bread for the ultra soft (no, not what ur thinking) bread. as for butter.. margarine feels the same, almost.

3. i too assumed the fardeen movie u were talking abt is pream aggan. but it seems to differ. why wud u watch that movie? i either watch really good hindi movies, or hindi porn, speaking of which i come to point 4.

4. dev d. very nice adaptation of devdas in modern times. it would be a regular day for rbr. watch it. and also the song 'Emosanal Atyachar' is pretty good in a funny way. listen closely to the part he sings 'whore'. rbr almost responded.

6. ever wondered what happened to point no.5?

7. frieda pinto is all of a sudden out with raunchy pics. no wonder her engagement got called off. i wouldnt be suprised if she's in the centerfold of playboy very soon.

8. did u miss me?

sanjana said...

oh howda! I assumed,after reading ur blog that the other movie was much better antha! nonetheless yerdu nodidre aythu ashte! :)

Anonymous said...

I assumed the movie you are talking about is the eone with i think malaika A's sis - where they travel together to a village and pretend to be married..??! Does anyone know which one i mean? Fardeen sucks, anyway i never understtod how come he became brand ambassador and everyone thought he was so hot - he was just fat. And he can't act. at all. And most importantly he is NOT hot!

Welcome back Pri. Keep writing.

Me thoughts you'd been alien abducted and the aliens had you on a tour of the universe (that they decided to totally give up abductions after this experience is another matter altogether...)

Liked PP2 - no matter how the critics diss it - ok it's not awesome but quite decent time-pass. When our own ARB came on-screen my son screeched "Gosh she looks ugly!" - she does in that first scene...

You had me lusting for Iyengar's Bakery bread...which is about half-way across the globe ....sigh:-((

Princess Fiona said...

i once did a study of how many ppl dig their noses in the car on the way to work and on the way back!

turns out...ppl prefer to excavate their nasal cavity in the morn rather than in morn..

i guess they think its more important that ur boss doesnt see ur buggers but ur mom/wife does! either that...when ur bored in the morn and got nothin to do..might as well have a dig :)

Priyanka said...

Great to have you back.
Waiting for PP2 to come here. Heard a lot about our ARB, both good and ugly. Hmmm..
Oh, and I agree with Anon up there. Fardeen is sooo not hot!

Pri, You forgot to mention the name of the bread & where you bought it from. I'm tired of my Brownberry 56 grain & would like to try something new..

Karan said...


Yeah, I love Koshy's bread butter too. It sucks that they don't even give you one slice with an omlette. Very cheap I feel. It's like people charging for sauce with a burger. But still, nice it is.

This dame I knew came off on that Chandrika face of the day.. Too funny it was. How do you even remember such stuff?

Also, I remember watching Prem Agan too. The chick's name was some Megahana something.

RBR isn't as cool as Dev D, don't believe the Irbitch.
