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...

Santhi Nilayam, School for the Mentally Challenged...

After a long long time, I visited the special school I used to work in, and the kids have all grown up...tiny tots now taller than me and sprouting facial hair!!! I was flummoxed... gosh, time changes everyone and everything. Wonder what changes they saw in me... anyway, I was just happy to be backthere. Went early to catch sight of that yellow school bus turning the corner and to watch all the kids tumbling out. While I was working there, that yellow bus turning the corner always marked the start of an exciting day. Right from the moment the kids hit the ground, the fun starts... that place will always be shrouded in hues of warm sunshine in my memory, it is a great place to be.  On the way to school, came across a few students... The special school, Santhi Nilayam (means Abode of Peace)  Great place...  The school bus and the kids... The assembly itself is heartwarming, a kid recites the prayers and the others repeat after him, in their characteristic sounds and half utterances.  T…

The Ten Commandments of Christmas

Last Sunday in church, leaflets with the following 'Christmas Ten Commandments' were handed out and the parish priest Fr. Joe Andrews discussed them with the congregation.   You shall not leave 'Christ' out of Christmas, making it 'Xmas'. Christ is the reason for the season.You shall prepare your soul for Christmas. Spend not so much on gifts that your soul is forgotten (a good confession is a nice way to prepare your hear for Christmas)You shall not let Santa Claus replace Christ, thus robbing the day of its spiritual reality. (Prepare yourself with prayer and the Word of God.)You shall not neglect your church. Its services highlight the true meaning of the season. You shall not neglect the needy. Share they blessings with the many who will go hungry and cold unless you are generous.You shall not neglect thy family during this season. You shall not forget the elderly and those who are lonely at Christmas time.You shall not value gifts received by their cost. E…

Grandma's Caramel Cake...

Everybody in my family loves this cake, its my grandmother's recipe and it can be tweaked during the holiday season to form a delicious Christmas fruit cake. The ingredients are simple to remember, you just need equal  quantities of flour, sugar and butter and the cake is guaranteed to come out great. Ingredients 400 grams maida or all purpose flour
400 grams sugar
400 grams butter
8 eggs
3 teaspoons vanilla essence
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
dried fruits and nuts 
brandy or rum (optional)
I've taken 400 grams of butter, sugar and flour cause I wanted to make a large cake for Christmas. You can scale the quantities down to half and make a medium sized cake. Let's start with caramelizing the sugar, from the 400 grams of sugar that you have set aside for this cake, take bout a quarter of that (100 grams) and start heating it in a dry vessel. I usually drop in another handful (bout 50 gms) of sugar to get more of the gooey caramel when I plan on adding b…
