why waste time thinking about a title?

Watched The Terminal. No reviews here. All I can say is it’s one of those movies, which makes you laugh and cry with ease. Taught what survival is. ‘Too good’ is not good enough a word to describe it.

Watched Around the world in 80 days too. What to say now?
Pow! Crash! Bang! It’s Jackie Chan! It’s a hilarious action comedy.
I got roses delivered too while I was in the theatre. The delivery guy kept on bugging me with calls saying he cannot find the address. Thought I’d utter Shania Twain style, ’that don’t impress me much’ but heh! It was nice to hold a bunch of red roses.

Now India is 101/2. I hope we win. Tired of seeing the Australians throw their weight around. India’s dogmatic adhearance to ineffective tactics have put them in skid row. Hope it’s a thing of the past in this match. Our dance classes in the Chinnaswamy Stadium had to be postponed cos of these brats last weekend. National waste!
Talking about the dance class. It’s the only place where it is politically correct should I say spiritually too:-) to switch partners and sway in the arms of many men. Got too spicy I guess. Ok, to dance with many men. If three guys like you and you like one of them then, flirt with the other two while dancing but go out with the third for coffee. Gives good ego massage to him. He will feel,’ I came, I saw, I conquered’. Relish the pleasure of making his day while you sip your favourite coffee.
‘J’ and me practice this policy, Some girls don’t act pricey, they just are.

Initially we used to give nicknames to people as it was tough to remember all the names. There is this guy who dances with his mouth opened. He is called mouth opener. One longhaired guy is named Zulfi, then there is lambu, chottu, ping-pong and there is cleavage. I hope I don’t have to explain why she is nicknamed cleavage:-)

even more amazing is that 'the terminal' is based on true life story..

The Terminal is a high class love story and an optimists delight. I loved it.

Around the..... was a waste of time for me. I prefer the novel.

The score is 197/3 and we are going to win ( i hope )

I am learning to dance as well but its called Bollywood Funk. Whatever that means. Dancing is very liberating and good fun.

I'm tired of watching our batting crumbling every now and then.
Its 249/6 and still 19.2 over still to be bowled today.
Let hope and pray they play sensibly and make our weekend HAPPY.

Btw, loved the nicknames, especially the last one :-)

Inspired by the story of Merhan Nasseri, an Iranian refugee. In 1988, he landed at Charles de Gaulle Airport near Paris after being denied entry into England because his passport and United Nations refugee certificate had been stolen. French authorities would not let him leave the airport, and there stayed, in Terminal One, a stateless person with nowhere else to go. He has since been granted permission to either enter France or return to his own country. He instead chooses to continue to live in the terminal and tell his story to those who will listen.

Yep,Terminal is a powerful movie.Good perfo from Tom Hanks.But a Spielberg-Hanks movie was supposed to be more powerful,isnt it?

Nick names are always a nice way to be with people whom you know and interact in a spy-like way.I have 2 great managers in my office whom we call the Godfather and The Tiger :-)
