imagesMy Dear Diary, although you are not as famous as the one of Jane Austen, you are still hiding lots of msytery and merit among your pages, aren’t you? 😛

When i was taking a peek through my blog this morning, it occured to me that i didn’t make any sum up for a quite while and said to myself  “why not now…although not happened too much”…

  • Just two weeks ago i left behind a hilarious 3-week summer vacation, the amazing taste of which i still feel on my soul which had taken a deep rest but put into anguish again due to the 1-week of busy schedule at office!  Still, as i always mention here and there, i love to be busy!
  • Esential bit of my life, regular visits to Starbucks, is still on its way properly. I was just yesterday at Starbucks and this time i had lemon-flavoured cake with the company of tall-latte. Ah! i just can’t give up on its taste and smell although it means half of my salary is invested in their capital 😛
  • Meanwhile, i have maintained to continue my intellectual activities…watching movies (mostly Bollywood) and catching up with my reading wishlist! I have “Kalyug”, “The Last Vampire”, “Luck”, “Kambakt Isqh” at hand yet to see. Any idea on any of them?! By the bye, i started to read “The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory” and “Emma by Jane Austen”. The handsome gentlemen and fabulous ladies of both already won my heart although i am just at the start of both reads. (Let me give you a secret, no one can take the place of Mr. Darcy 😛 )
  •  These days i am again at trouble in the kitchen. I never say i don’t have the ability to cook but the will! i am just not fond of cooking by any means. Recently, although i spared a lot time for cooking, half of the time was spent on deciding what to cook indeed. So any kind of easy and practical recipe is very welcome here 😀

My dearest Diary, i guess that is all for now. Even if there is to say yet, my still sleepy mood lets me neither to think nor to write…isliye baki baatein baad mein 😀

Love,

Choti

I was searching for a movie to distract me from real life for a while just last night. While scanning through the DVD shelf, I came across with The Jane Austen Book Club. I guess I had some kind of prejudice towards this movie, thinking that it was one of the chick flick movies revolving around Hollywood with simple love affairs or human relations; but I was mistaken.

The movie is based on Karen Joy Fowler’s novel telling us about the lives of six people living in California. Their lives were under focus via the characters in Jane Austen’s six books, i.e. Emma, Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Northanger Abbey, Persuasion and Mansfield Park. While going through these characters and the eventful lives processed in her books, these six people were actually making an inventory about their own lives, relations, personalities, and even mistakes!

 

Favorite quote from the movie: “No rules, no fear!”
