Somebody (i.e. me) partied a little too hardy at her birthday party last night and so I'm taking the day off from posting today but I wanted to pop in and thank everybody for their wonderful messages. I was really overwhelmed. I started this blog as an outlet for my ramblings about Indian film but have kept it up because of encouragement from all of you. Nobody blogs in a vacuum - or if they do, they're doing it wrong - and everybody reading this is just as much a part of this blog as I am.
I don't talk much about myself on here, mostly because you would find it VERY uninteresting but today I will share that there have been times when I was feeling very low and very alone but knowing that there so many wonderful people out in the world who have reached out to me has really been a comfort. I honestly couldn't tell you why I became so emotionally involved in popular Indian film, except that the pure joy that I can take while watching a particularly good masala film is a feeling I've never been able to duplicate in any other pop culture experience. Good masala is my heroine... to steal a pun from Force.
Anyways, in lieu of gossip today, I wanted to share with you my special birthday tweets - including some great Pakistani birthday songs - and a very, very special tweet from a certain favorite actor of mine...
Does it get better than this? THANK YOU, EVERYBODY!
(This song had great birthday hats...)
(THANK YOU, my friend! And now I owe you some cake and cookies via post since you couldn't attend... be sure to drop me your address and I'll send them off.)
