Suma of Thinking aloud tagged me on this....and yes...its fun doing such tags, which helps you brush out the cobwebs that are forming in your mind....and so I thought, speed test I may not pass, but take it up I sure will...

so here goes my history.....

Last Movie You Saw In A Theater: Considering I have forgotten how movies for pure adults only look or sound in theatres ( courtesy-the 2 brats), this was a treat....when the theatres put up a sign "CHILDREN BELOW 18 NOT ALLOWED" we moms couldn't help but screech with joy...yay!!!!!

Yes it was the over hyped RACE starring Saif ali khan and Bipasha and ....
Loved the songs and loved sitting through the movie and getting to eat the whole tub of popcorn by myself...and drinking just one drink...not having to get up for the in between the movie loo breaks..."sigh" ...That sure was a great stress buster for us 4 moms who had gone to put up our feet...oh yes...
