Friday Night Full Tight*

*Friday Night Full Tight loosely translates to “got wrecked” in America speak.

Friday night turned out to be quite an epic evening (by which I mean we eventually ended up at Bling.) Starting off with an entertaining stand up act called “Around the World in 80 minutes” by Jonathan Atherton who does a fair amount of cultural mimickery amid his mostly self-effacing humor. (I find Mumbai laughs loud and easily at most stand up comics. We’re good like that.) The only slightly uncomfortable silence during the show was when he (rather seriously) mentioned that abused women make better lovers. Followed by no punchline. Er… Spotted Lara Dutta, Rajat Kapoor, Anubhav Pal and Rahul Da Cunha all in for the gig as well.

After the show we all headed over to Zenzi for drinks where I ran into a very pretty Juhi Pande and an equally friendly Abhay Deol. It’s impossible to dislike anyone with dimples I feel. He was really sweet about posing for these pictures and (as is my fate) must have assumed I was a fan. I kinda am now.

So we ended up going from Zenzi to Shiro to Oba to Polly to Bling (where after they shut for the general public I think they reopened for Sohail Khan and crew.) Luckily this time we made it home before dawn and woke up the next afternoon and went straight to Salt Water Cafe for lunch. Yum. As we were leaving we spotted this heavily guarded ride. Wonder who’s it is. Anyone?

Quasi-stellar radio source.

I love Q Theater Productions aka QTP. They’re now out with a new Project S.T.R.I.P. A comedy of Development directed by the extremely clever and quirky Q (aka Quasar Padamsee son of the renowned stage actors Alyque Padamsee and Dolly Thakore. Didjya know that his mother was a casting director for the Academy Award winning film Gandhi in 1982 an his father played the role of Jinnah in the same movie, Cool eh?)

If you happen to be in town head to Sathaye College Auditorium Vile Parle (East) on the 27th & 28th of June 09 @ 7pm, Tickets  ate 100rs ($2) a pop!

P.S. I also think he has the most unique name I’ve ever heard. Quassar is short for quasi-stellar radio source. A compact, starlike celestial body with a power output greater than our entire galaxy. Wow right?!

Lalita and Deepak

While we’re on the subject of names btw my big bro & sister-in-law Deepak and Lalita (seriously how cute are they?!) are expecting their very own bundle of joy next weekend and are still a bit mystified on the baby-name front. I’ve been trying to think of a few options for them but I’m hoping they won’t mind my asking you too – dear reader, since you never know where inspiration lurks! (Besides they’ve had some pretty bizarre suggestions and you know how much your name can change your life right?!) Please post your suggestions in the comments quick! (They have narrowed it down to Tia if its a girl and are contemplating Kian if its a boy. I like them both.) I’m so excited!!
