Holiday Watch List – Star Wars and Pirates of the Caribbean

Besides getting through holiday chores list, hanging out with friends at parties, hogging good food, airport pick ups and drop offs, doing road trips on a whim….the boys and I are going to be binge watching Star Wars and Pirates of the Caribbean.

Side note: My fellow Thalivar/Rajnikanth fans – Don’t be disappointed or angry about the lack of Thalivar movies on this year holiday’s watch list. If I suggest one more Thalivar movie to the boys, I might have to spend the holidays on the streets.

Adi is fascinated with Star Wars because he has learnt that today’s scientists primary childhood influence was Star Trek and Star Wars. He has been selling this idea to Ari.

My fascination with pirates started young due to my avid reading habits. Robin Hood (not a pirate…but an outlaw) and Daphne du Maurier’s Frenchman’s Creek were my favorites. I read those along with Valmiki, Leo Tolstoy and Thomas Hardy. There is no connection whatsoever between these genres. But, that is what makes reading interesting. You travel through worlds that are so different. To end with the ra ra…I am going to influence the boys to watch Pirates of the Caribbean for one simple reason – my never ending crush on Captain Jack Sparrow.

Hope your having an absolutely wild and fun holiday!!

P.S. The photo was taken in Disneyland when Adi gave Darth Maul a run for his money on the lightsaber. Darth didn’t know that Adi was Bay Area Silambam master Veda’s protege.
