Sunday Mornings

I love F.R.I.E.N.D.S. They cheer me up in a way nothing and no one else can! Just saw an episode where Phoebe and Joey are playing chess. And phoebe picks up this horse piece or whatever it is called and does a full round of the chessboard with it. Then says, 'Chess!'. And Joey goes 'Good move!' :D. Absolute genius!

Watched Descendants this weekend. I have never really got the point of making depressing movies. Life's not a bed of roses, and when even the fictitious movies are not cheery (which they can choose to be!), it doesn't really make sense. But, I make an exception for this movie. Can't place my finger on it, but there was something really nice about the way the movie was made. A dysfunctional family dealing with death. There's a scene where Clooney hears from his daughter that his dying wife was cheating on him and he just starts running. The way he stumbles out and just runs blindly, it was brilliant. The best scenes sometimes are the ones without a dialogue. This one is a definite one time watch.

Also, am back to reading Mother Pious Lady. Twice, gave away the book to dear ones. This time I intend to finish it! Santosh Desai has written a gem!
