Well, it's that time of year again. The presents have been played with, the tree waits patiently to be taken down and plans for how to spend the last night of the year are under way. As it is so incredibly difficult to find a babysitter, we are going to be having a quiet night at home again (blah!), though I'm still going to have a martini in one hand an and apple pie shooter in the other (so yum!). Have to try and ring the new year in with a little style, right!?
As I reflect on the year that has been, despite not really making any new year's resolutions last year, it has been a year of personal growth, discovery and angst. I committed myself to a workout regiment and nutritional program that resulted in a huge milestone in my weight loss goal (50 lbs!), I made some really terrific friends online through twitter (thanks to Shah Rukh, who was really the only reason I went on in the fist place), I continued my Bollywood education (though you must forgive me, the latter half of the year it's been difficult to keep on top of my movie collection). I've also had to deal with the ongoing saga that is my friendship with my bff, and I sometimes think that things will never get back to the way they used to be, all on account of my marriage, which is also a continuing work in progress. My 6 yr old started grade one and my 3 year old finally got potty trained. I had moderate success with my card classes and struggled half the year keeping and getting kids in my dayhome. Ah, life, you are a roller coaster personified, aren't you?
Well, I am going to continue not making resolutions this year and am just going to keep trying my best to keep on the same track I'm on. HOWEVER, I really need to get back to the movie watching. I tried watching critically acclaimed Love, Sex Aur Dokha last night and couldn't get past the 2nd story. If this is parallel cinema, then I am going to firmly stay planted in the land of masala, heart wrenching kjo dramas and frothy, light hearted rom coms. I've got so many movies sitting on my dvd shelf waiting to be watched, but none of them are calling to me. Maybe some help from my bolly blogging buddies is in order? Here's the list of what's waiting downstairs. Help me out people, what do I NEED to watch?
Apna Sapna Money Money
Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge?
Chor Machaye Shor
Chori Mera Kaam
Chori Chori Chupke Chupke
Deewane Huye Paagal
Dil Hai Tumhaara
Duniya Meri Jeb Main
Gora aur Kala
Haan...Maine Bhi Pyaar Kiya
Heaven on Earth
Hum Saath-Saath Hain
Insaaf Ka Tarazu
Maine Pyaar kyun Kiya
Mujhse Shaadi Karogi
Phir Hera Pheri
Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha
Seeta Aur Geeta
