Waiting…

Whenever I cross this place, I wonder when I will be going in to watch the play. I tried to book it in this time, but it was all full and the only slots available were in end of August (I am leaving coming Monday) . So I decided to wait until the craziness would die down. But with more spoilers coming in, I wonder if it is a wise decision to put it off until later. Also heard that there might be a movie that might be made  based on this play. Wonder how that will turn out.

This waiting game sucks…(and yes, I am talking about Game of Thrones too…book and series) 1-IMG_20160728_202625.jpg

My house(s)

I had registered with Pottermore a couple of years back. But I forgot my password to login. When I tried to use the ‘Forgot the password’ option, they informed that I wont be able to retrieve it since the site had changed after I had registered. Of course it has. But thankfully when I reregistered it I was able to use my username and associate my house to my account. And I also figured out my Ilvermorny House and more about my wand too. Here is what Pottermore told me about my houses and my wand. Which house(s) do you belong to?

WPC: Cover Art

I thought last week’s challenge was difficult. But this week is not only difficult but very challenging. I have tried my level best and here are my entries for this week’s photo challenge theme: Cover Art

a) My cover art for the movie/book ‘The Motorcycle Diaries

motorcyclediaries-001

b) Who doesn’t love to have some ‘Fun with Toy Trains‘ ? I know I do.

and finally since this is a season of festivity and weddings, if you looking for wedding cards, look no further. Saath Phere is a Hindu wedding ceremony. So I used it as the name of the card company (imaginary  name)

How did I do ?

Gone Girl – Trailer

I absolutely loved the book ‘Gone Girl‘ (that post of mine will have spoilers) by Gillian Flynn. Just loved the characters in it, the good, the bad and the grey. And I am for sure going to watch the movie that is releasing here next week, 31st Oct to be precise. But to be very honest, when I saw the trailer first, I was a little apprehensive. Because you see when I read the book and heard that they are going to do the movie, I somehow thought  that Nicole Kidman would be apt for the role of Amy. Don’t ask me why, it is one of those unnecessary thoughts that creep up when you read a book and you sort of put some known actors in it because you know they can carry it well. I haven’t seen Rosamund Pike’s acting except for the one in Die Another Day and well, you know how it is in Bond movies.  And I have told my friends to please please read the book before they come to the movie, even though I know that it isn’t going to happen. But if you are planning to see this movie (even though I am going to go with absolutely no high hopes) my kind suggestion would be to read the book first (and hopefully you haven’t read the Wikipedia already) because I know that a lot of what is written cannot be easily translated to a movie script and the book was a such a pleasure to read, if you like those kind of drama, family, romance (or not), sarcasm, crime, thriller, humor etc.

And if you are in a place where the movie is already released and you have seen it, let me know your thoughts on the same.

My Blurb Book – For review

Ever since I did that solo European Tour last year and collected a whole lot of photographs, I have had this urge to have a book printed with it as a memoir. Not a coffee table kind of thing, but something as a pat on my back (is that narcissistic ?) for the first step that I took, which is always the toughest one for me. That tour was a huge confidence booster for me and I will forever be grateful for all those who were there in that group because they made me feel at home and I really really enjoyed their company as much as I did those places. It was also the tour where I covered one of the 7 wonders of the world or rather one of the new 7 wonders of the world , the Roman Colosseum. Today, after so many discarded efforts, I finally completed that 20 page book with selected photographs for each place visited as part of that tour. I tried my hands at Book Wright tool from Blurb and got it done today. The link is given below. I am not planning to sell it, obviously, but am definitely planning to print it for my personal use. It would be of great help if you could review the same (all pages are shown in the preview) and let me know your view, comments or corrections (my English , especially my grammar isn’t that good). Somehow the font I used looks good when I see it in the software, but in the preview, unless it is viewed full screen, isn’t very clear. I might have to rethink about the font.
