Random Thoughts on a Friday Afternoon

March 27, 2009 2 comments

– Apparently Freida Pinto has become the highest grossing Indian actress, bigger than Aishwarya and Katrina Kaif, after landing various big name roles in Hollywood including one working with Woody Allen (!). I’m wondering if the Bollywood A-List are going to bitchslap this newcomer with no Bollywood pedigree and who hasnt done the hard yards… or if they’ll try to get on her back and ride the wave into Hollywood. http://tinyurl.com/d2bbhw

– People who do those Herald Sun quizzes in a big group in cafes really loudly are annoying…. ANNOYING! Because I constantly want to yell out the answers while those dumb-arses go “umm” “arr” “umm”… 

Idiot 1: “What country is Sa…sas…sak… sask…. Saskatchewan a province in?”

Idiot 2: “Duhhhh… dunno”

Idiot 3: “Omfg what?” 

Idiot 4: “India? Afghanistan?”

Me (in my head): “Canada, you fools! CANADA!”

– Can’t wait to get my new iPhone on Tuesday. woOt! I’ve been iPhoneless for far too long now…

– Having finished Fitzgerald’s “Great Gatsby” which deserves all the praise that it gets (it was awesome) I am now reading Vikas Swarup’s Q&A/Slumdog Millionaire… and well, given my extremely low expectations for it, it’s been moderately entertaining (while being as poorly written as I expected).
