Kiddy Movie Reco: Turbo

We LOVE animated movies in this household. Especially about all sorts of creatures you normally wouldn't encounter in your day to day life or even if you did, you wouldn't give them a second thought. Turbo falls into the second category. The story of a garden snail who dreams of the Indy 500 and his…

Movie Review-Captain America: Civil War

It's been AGES since I saw a movie on the same day it released. Probably not since 04 but then that's too far into the past for me to dredge up the when and wherefores. I generally enjoy the offerings from the Marvel universe. Captain America is the typical boy scout but he's easy on…

Reflections On A Sunday…Yet Again

After a long while I had a lot of space. A LOT. I mean driving-alone-on-a-fairly-secluded-road-with-not-too-many-people-around or too-far-behind-in the-mirror-kind-of-space. And I just took in the solitude along with the car freshner smell and realized: It is SO important to have some totally, totally, totally alone time; away from social media, people and other living beings barring…

Reblogged: Marking Territory

Everywhere I look, I sit the offspring's presence prevails. The jar of Gummybears are usually within hand's reach although with the child-proof caps it's still a bit in our control when we want to hand the bears over. There are clothes clips on the futon, tigers and lions (figures) under the sofa cushions and Play…

Movie Review- How To Train Your Dragon 2

I have been waiting to see this movie since i got to know it was in the pipeline. And it hasn't been that long a wait. I had actually despaired thinking that if it gets released in the 3D format then I would need a babysitter (no luck getting one till date) or go see…

Silly Little Milestones

Am sure other parents do this as well, whether they announce it out loud or not...I remember all of MLM's milestones...maybe not the date but the age he was when he did particular things. Today he achieved another milestone which doesn't appear in any doctor's chart but pretty much everyone around him seems to have…

Halves&Wholes

People often introduce their spouses as their better halves. Or bitter depending on what time of the day you run into them or during which pet peeve they seem to be exercising; but the fact of the matter is that you do feel like something's missing when someone in your family or your everyday existence…

The Wild Kingdom…Right At Home!

I have ALWAYS wanted to go to the Serengeti. Snorkel in the clear blue waters of atolls in Maldives. Scuba dive and even be inside a shark cage and see makos and great whites glide by. I'd probably give up the ghost right there if such an opportunity presented itself, truth be told, but one…
