Hooray for Bollywood
I now have a new obsession for 2004. Last night I experienced Bollywood for the first time. I essentially received a quick intro to Hindi movies. Wow! There's dancing and singing and porpoises jumping in the air and dramatic flashbacks and star-crossed lovers and much, much more!
Speaking of new obsessions, I've picked my new Pretend Boyfriend/Obsession for 2004. Previous obsessions have included Cristian de la Fuente and Costas Mandylor, but I think my international obsession has now extended east! Akshaye Khanna, a Bollywood Movie-Star, is well known for being a tad difficult and choosy in his roles and is just plain-ole super dreamy.
Oh, Anderson Cooper and former FBI honcho Louis Freeh still make my heart go pitty-pat, but I don't think that when they break out into a heart-felt confession that hundreds of foxy sari-wearing ladies with thick black eyeliner will join in the chorus!
I may be wrong, but even if Anderson Cooper did burst out into song - there would be no saris. I'm afraid that his momma, Gloria Vanderbilt, would not approve.
