I feel like my blog is turning into an obscenity filled rant-fest so I am going to try and tone things down a bit. December is a stressful month so I’ve been taking my frustrations out on the last couple of posts, so I promise less swearing, especially since the readership of this blog seems to be getting younger and younger…
So here is the woman in my life. My niece Dania! Many of you remember her from when she was born (Check her out here). Mashallah she is now a whole year old and is the most entertaining thing I have ever seen.
I’ve recently been performing musical experiments on her, to see what her tastes are. This is my playlist of music and these are her reactions.
1) Led Zeppelin - Good Times Bad Times
Looks at me with confused expression.
2) The Teddybears – Cobrastyle
A little smile. But not much else. Looks like she’s going to dance but then stops and tries to take off her socks.
3) Jeff Buckley – Lover You Should Have Come over
Sits on the floor and leans forward with mouth slightly open, Seems to be concentrating very hard. Looks guilty. Yep, she is definitely pooping.
4) Gloria – Van Morrison
Big smile! Starts bouncing up and down.
5) Black Sabbath – War Pigs
Ignore. Starts crawling away. I look around to make sure my sister doesn’t catch me playing Black Sabbath to her 1-year-old.
6) Kailash Kher – Kaise Mein Kahoon
Complete madness. She is swaying from side to side, flailing her arms up and down and grinning from ear to ear. If she weren’t a baby, I would definitely say she was on crack.
7) POMP up the jam (from that Govinda movie….’Partner’ I think)
Stands up and does cute little butt-shake. I am absolutely horrified.
So it appears that babygirl still has a long way to go before she appreciates rock’n’roll. I guess one has to go through teenage angst before any of that makes sense. But Govinda? Must shelter her from this.
