Thursday tangents

by Khushboo on December 1, 2011

1) I FINALLY saw The Help and loved it.  It’s difficult for any movie to capture every dimension of the original book within 2 hours but The Help did a great job in portraying the various relationships between the characters.    It definitely lived up to my expectations!

2) My buddy Maneka and I participated in a flash-mob on Sunday afternoon: i.e. we and 248 other people broke out into a dance in the middle of the local train station.  And now  I know how Bollywood actresses feel.


3) I’ve taken deviled eggs to a whole level…Enter pb&j-filled boiled egg-whites

Angelic eggs

Angelic eggs

4) I’ve gotten such a kick out of some of the search engine terms people have used to come across my blog:

  • is it true that sarah jessica parker favorite food is mac & cheese--> If anyone knows the answer, please share
  • I don’t know I’m just a bunny with a pancake–> WTF
  • are thadani in india non-vegetarian--> Why yes we are
  • im sleeping, dont bbm me—> As if I would ever say that

5) Living in  Mumbai has deprived me of 2 of my favorite foods: fro yo & hummus.  Fortunately both of these voids have now been narrowed:

  • A fro yo has opened up in Breach Candy (15 minute-drive from my home)
  • I bought some tahini paste so guess who has been blitzing away!

6) I have a marathon in my future and it doesn’t involve 26.2 miles.  Hello, 8 new episodes of Modern Family to catch up on!

And finally

7) This is officially my 301st post :shock:

Tell me one of your Thursday tangents…

That flash mob video is AWESOME! I’m so unbelievably jealous, I’ve always wanted to be part of one :) If I’m honest those deviled eggs sound a little gross but I’ll take your word for it. And hell yes to Modern Family! I’m planning a similar marathon for this Sunday. :)

I get a kick out of my search engine terms, too. What are these people doing with their lives? haha

So many things to say here!

- Just went to Yogurt Bay yesterday and it’s such a relief to have frozen yogurt in South Mumbai! The chocolate yogurt with chocolate brownie was delish! What did you have?
- I loveee hummus! I’m doing something related on my blog real soon!
- I’m so happy to know someone who was a part of that dance! It was legendary!
- I just did my first ever dessert recipe post and I’d love to know what you think. See you soon!

I am yet to try it but am sure it will involve the peanut butter flavor if they still have it! Cool to know there’s a fellow blogger in Mumbai!

Hahahha I’m just a bunny with a pancake made me laugh. That’s so random. Speaking of the help, my blog gets a lot of searches for Mae mobley because I blogged about the movie after I saw it!

Hahah once I barely mentioned Michael Jackson’s name and for the longest time, I got SO much traffic purely because of Google searches for MJ!
