Alright, I know I've done a lot of deep posts lately. I'm an old soul what can I say So tonight I thought I'd go for something a little lighter; hard to believe but in fact I do have a more playful side.
Over the weekend I had a Bollywood party. A what? Bollywood! Movies from India for those who don't know (don't worry I won't tell). I could go on and on about them but the Reader's Digest version is that they are hugely popular everywhere but here in the US and are filled with lots of color, dancing, spectacle, dramatic plots and happy moral messages in the end that leave you with that feel-good feeling. Oh and they're for the most part completely cheesy! I love em! I sometimes wonder how it can be that Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless mind is in the same category of favs as a few of the Bollywood movies I enjoy. Go figure- I'm one tough cookie to define. I dare anyone to try.
Anyway back to the party. It was a good time. I had roughly 20 people over (some who were familiar with the genre and others who were Bollywood virgins) and made some good Indian food (Curry, Naan etc) and watched a good Bollywood film. I love being the hostess and I love entertaining. I'm learning that in general I just like to take care of people and make sure they're happy. It was quite the affair from start to finish and I was spent by the end but it was a good time.
And if anyone out there just happens to be a bollywood fan, I'm always looking for suggestions on stuff I haven't seen yet.
