Marvelous May

Finished Reading:

  • Wifedom. This wasn’t my favorite read, but still a good one. I’d probably recommend reading half of it and getting the gist (which is quite powerful but doesn’t require that many pages).

Finished Watching:

  • Heeramandi. The set design was incredible as was the story (and based on real events). In some ways this made me feel like I live in the wrong era.
  • Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Nice watch. Very different from the movie.
  • Laapataa Ladies. The first good desi wholesome watch in a while.
  • Bridgerton. zeitgeist-watch but secretly very enjoyable. I realized this season that it contradicts itself in a lot of ways but it never detracts from its watchability.

New Vocab:

  • Ineluctable - unable to be resisted or avoided; inescapable.
  • Acerbic - (especially of a comment or style of speaking) sharp and forthright.
  • Anodyne - not likely to provoke dissent or offense; inoffensive, often deliberately so.
  • Crepuscular - of, resembling, or relating to twilight.
  • Expiating - atone for (guilt or sin).
  • Moue - a pouting expression used to convey annoyance or distaste.

No Comments.

I acknowledge and pay respect to the Traditional Custodians on whose land I live, play, and work. I pay my deepest respects to all Indigenous Elders past, present and emerging.
