UPDATE: Bollywood Moment....
I have gotten so much feedback, emails, and questions about my DC Bollywood moment that I feel compelled to write an update blog even though I technically don't have any updates. Other than the fact that I found this SUPER HOT pic of Shahrukh Kahn...in the rain, of course. As well as the only pic I could find of Drew Barrymore in the rain...it's most definitely not as hot, but it's the best I could do.
Hey, if Javier Bardem can play Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat, Pray, Love fiance Felipe and Julia Roberts can play Liz....then by golly Shahrukh Kahn can play the part of Anonymous DC Bollywood Man and Drew Barrymore can play ME! This would be the ultimate combining of Bollywood/Hollywood stardom. Aishwarya Rai can play my best friend Wajhma...and Arjun Rampal will be her love interest ( you can thank me at the premiere, Wajh). I am SO glad I've got this all figured out...PHEW!
I can't WAIT! What should I wear on the red carpet!!!???? I'm thinking...BLACK. It makes an understated statement, you know!? Plus, black is slimming. Maybe by the time we are done filming and the premiere...in DC....is ready to commence I will have already made enough money in the book deal about my DC Bollywood romance that I will be able to afford a personal trainer and be able to eat all raw foods and crap like that.
Okay, back to reality.
I am a silly silly girl, so I did take everyone's advice and checked the missed connections page on Craigslist. I quickly decided that I was neither "Asian chick in yellow boots" or "The #$%#@% idiot that cut me off". I briefly saw a small bit of light with "Girl of my dreams", but after opening it realized that it was addressed to some lucky lady that this guy had cheated on and wanted a second chance. Ew. All-in-all...craigslist...not romantic.
I had a few people suggest that I post a missed connections, but I have declined to do so. 1) It's just not my style to chase after a guy at all...especially on Craigslist. 2) It's just not Bollywood. You see, in the Bollywood movies, the guy feverishly chases after the girl of his dreams and her job...is to coyly evade him...and yet still entice him with her shy, beckoning eyes. I'm not suggesting that that is my modus operandi...I think me trying to be coy and shy is about as entertaining as watching a kitten wearing a cowboy hat ride around on a dog. However, if I am to turn this into a true Bollywood moment...Mr. Helping Hand will have to appear again...in any manner of romantic glory. In the movies it's usually involving some form of public transportation, but seeing as how i walk most of the time, I suppose we'll just have to stare longing at each other across the street...only to be separated by passing traffic...and then POOF! I'm gone. And the search continues....
So, I will leave my Bollywood romance in God's hands now....as I have decidedly left all of my romance in His hands...for once! I will be sure to keep all of you updated on any Mr. Helping Hand spottings.
On another update note....still don't know who Mr. Anonymous is...
Katie...the true life charactor that Drew Barrymore will play in the story of my life
