Flapped & Whipped…

I am really chuffed to learn that two of my most favourite films had won the Oscars last night! I was having this conversation with Hubbie in a cab on our way to lunch at Cafe Royal on Regent Street last Saturday, ‘Which film would you choose, Whiplash or Birdman, if you were asked at gunpoint?’ Hubbie’s pick was Whiplash and mine was the latter. Why at gunpoint? Because both of the films were neck and neck when it came to impress us, and therefore, choosing one was an extremely difficult task…

About Whiplash, I love the intensity of the performance and the twists in the storyline.
Do you remember the scene in which the Fletcher give hearty slaps to the poor Andrew? ‘Dragging? or rushing?’ The antics has become a playful tease in my household!

And about Birdman, didn’t you love the camera work? It was mesmerising!
The protagonist’s mental landscape was magically (& sometimes, nauseatingly) integrated into the backstage of theatre and I loved the creativity which made the film so enjoyable in all fronts. And so many funny lines and moments!.Oh, it was truly a brilliant treat. Damn all gimmicks like 3D glasses! No gadget or special effects can save mediocrity!

By the way, my friends call some of the posts in my Facebook page as “food porn”…

And I love it!
I am not at all good at selfies but taking pictures of what I eat, I can do much better…

T.G.I Friday (so I wish)…

Ughhhhh, where the he** is my plumber?! He told me that he would be here at 1pm and then, phoned me it was gonna be 5pm. Now, it’s 5:30 and no sign of him. Is he coming today or do we have to rearrange the date for sometime next week? Oh, how much I loathe having to rely on someone who is so clearly unreliable!

Mr.B, the epitome of equilibrium…

Sometimes, I just wish if my mind could be so simple, pure & unruffled like his.

Then, Hubbie came home with a handyman…

Godfrey the gingerbread man.
He wouldn’t fix any loo but would definitely pump up my deflated moral…
