I'm BAAAAAAAACCCCKKKK

Well, that was certainly a pleasant six days! My husband and I rewarded ourselves yesterday by barely speaking while our kids napped (in order to enjoy the silence), ate huge steak dinners (I lost another 2.4 lbs.) and watched "Sideways." During my kid's naps in the afternoon, I succumbed to a guilty pleasure of mine--a Bollywood movie! Well, it was "Bride and Prejudice," a Bollywood-esqe flick by the same director who did "Bend it like Beckham" (another one of my favorites!) Recently, I found out that a couple of my girlfriends dragged their husbands to see "Bride and Prejudice." After seeing it, I can't believe that their penises didn't fall off and that they didn't develop breasts while watching it--it was THAT girlie!!! Now I understand why they were so mad to have to sit through it! It was FABULOUS! I made my husband thank me for not making him watch it.

If you never have, you really should rent a Bollywood film. It is the only type of movie you are going to see where men will be in the middle of an intense battle, when all of the sudden, brightly dressed maidens will suddenly appear and start dancing in the middle of the battlefield. The men will toss their weapons aside and join them in the gaiety. And all the while, there is a struggle between a man and a woman who never should have met, much less fallen in love... The plots are always predictable, I can never understand the words to their songs, but I can't stop myself from watching them.

My movie watching was a great escape for me so that I didn't have to think about my next Hausfrau Family Fistfight, which is coming up this weekend--My Daughter's Baptism!!!!!!!!! In Indiana!!!!!!!I'll See the Same Family Members Who Just Left!!!!!!!And More Relatives!!!!!!Who Are Always Mad at Someone!!!!! At least I will have some friends who will be there to witness the hilarity that is my family.

Now if I can just get rid of MY houseguests, I'll rent that movie . . .
