unnamed restaurants and fusion cinema

For the second time in a week, efforts to go to the restaurant at 913 Pike failed. On Friday they were overcrowded, today they were closed. Because I still haven't put phone numbers into my sidekick I couldn't call Carolyn; so I waited outside for her to arrive and flipped through a promotional copy of Resonance magazine. Several other people tried to get in; so I didn't feel as bad about not knowing about their policy of closing on Mondays and Tuesdays.

The reading bit caused me to not notice Carolyn walking past the poorly marked restaurant, resulting in further delays in our evening agenda. Which turned out to be watching Bride & Prejudice. It is "the perfect marriage of Bollywood and Hollywood," an adaptation of the Jane Austen novel of a very similar title. Every bit as cheesy as one might expect from this concept, the film was still pretty enjoyable. I'm assured that it generally followed the book's plot, though more than a few liberties were taken.

Roger Ebert believes that Aishwarya Rai is not only the most beautiful woman in the world, but also the second most beautiful woman. Heh.

I just like saying her name. I believe it's pronounced "osh-whar-ee-uh". prettE.
I guess it's good news for the third-prettiest woman. She only needs to knock off one person to take the title.
I've been wondering about that movie...it just opened here and I really want to see it (mostly to convince them to bring some actual Bollywood musicals here, cause I'm even more interested in seeing the real thing), but sometimes the previews make it look dumb and other times it looks good (in an expected cheesy musical sort of way). So I'm glad to hear that it is what I basically expected it to be. I'll have to try to convince Jason to go this weekend...or maybe it'll be playing at the same time as Constantine since he wants to see that and I, of course, refuse.
It's really hard to tell if it's intentionally cheesy or not.
