The Good Wife and Glee...

Two TV shows that have caught my interest are 'The Good Wife' and 'Glee'. The Good Wife is a lot like The Practice... lots of interesting legal drama and courtroom scenes. The female lead is wonderfully cast and she brings a kind of dignity to the show. Everything about the show is nice, the way the camera captures mundane yet meaningful scenes, the guy from 'Dead Poets society' as one of the partners and the cases they come across. I used to love the Practice, had a huge crush on Dylan McDermott until I saw him as a gay guy in Will and Grace, that ruined the whole image I had of him. Anyway, The Good Wife is really well taken and I hope it becomes popular soon... here's a preview.

Another show that is worth watching is Glee, it took me some time to like it though... my sister and the cousins were discussing Glee on facebook and I couldn't understand what the big fuss was about. I mean it's supposed to be like high school musical without Zac Efron and I only saw High school musical because of Zac Efron (yeah I kinda like Zac Efron and Miley Cyrus... weird no...) Anyway, I got hooked after they performed the single ladies dance, it cracked me up. I like the gay guy 'Kurt'the best, everything 'bout him is funny... his dad is pretty cool too. Apparently Glee is quite the rage out there in the sitcom world and with these few videos you'll understand why...

And they sing brilliantly too (especially lea or rachel), sometimes most of the songs I hear on Glee seem better than the original composition. You should check out these songs too 'Dancing with myself' and 'Defying Gravity'

Anyway, here are a few one liners that cracked me up...

Sandy : Who is Josh Groban?! Kill yourself! He is an angel sent from heaven to deliver platinum records unto us and if he were here right now, I would club you to death with his critics choice award.

Kurt (the gay guy): At least you don't have to worry about me getting someone pregnant.

Kurt's Dad: What's up with your brain today. I think it's going soft from all that crap you put in your hair.

Rachel: Maybe one of these days you will find a way to create teaching moments without ruining my life.

Sue: I didn't want to end up stuck in a lousy high school wrestling with mental illness, or 40 and single coaching THE worst football team in the history of this state or having to go to the salon every week to have my hair permed. (directed at Emma , the coach and Will... I thought the perm part was hilarious.)

Nam, they are all talented, they can sing, dance and act... I think this show will go on.

Megh's, his wife is dumb and I can't understand how Will married her in the first place. They are like the older version of Finn and Quin...

December 2016 and January 2017

The last few months of 2016 were crazy in so many ways. First there was the money issue (when the higher denomination notes lost their value overnight) which created a mess of economic proportions. The insane queues at banks and ATM's and all the scrambling that was happening to make sense of it all, made November quite memorable.  Around the same time, Trump came out victorious which I thought was pretty hilarious... a sort of validation that people are the same everywhere, based on who we elected here.  Anyway, after the chaos of November, December came with her own brand of drama. I heard of Cyclone Nada, but I was busy in Nagercoil then enjoying a birthday party...Even that was fun, surprising the birthday girl who did not know that I was at the airport with dad. She walks up and down and I'm hiding behind the newspaper pretending to read it, then I see Manoj by her side, and they finally come out and she is hugging my dad and after that I walk up behind her and tap her on t…

A Corpse in the Ground

Avila and Fatima

The next day after an early breakfast we set out to visit Avila, which is about an hour's drive from Madrid.
A video of the landscape in Spain... Here, we've just reached Avila... these Walls of Avila were completed between the 11th and 14th centuries and they are the city's defining image. We had a lovely guide, Maria, and she took us around this quaint city explaining about the fortress and the cathedrals.
Another video depicting the welcoming sounds of Avila... the constantly chirping birds over the walled city of Avila are quite captivating, they seem to beckon you in. Avila's charm...  The sun, spilling her beams... 
The church of St. Teresa of Avila Inside the church, mass was just getting over... The chapel dedicated to St. Teresa
The main square in Avila
So after checking out the church of St. Teresa and the museum where her finger is displayed, we started on our way to Fatima in Portugal which is about a five hour drive from Avila.

Stopped on the way to have a …
