Ahhh, February, the month of love…can’t you feel it? As a celebration of this wonderful month, Colin and I got re-married. Sort of kidding. We had a Hindu wedding ceremony because we originally just went to the courthouse (which was also magical and wonderful but this had a lot more dancing and pictures). See:

My cousin also took some pictures of the Gaaye Holud, a turmeric ceremony. Essentially, everyone comes up and smears a yellow paste all over our faces:

Colin is going strong! “How to Win at the Sport of Business” by Mark Cuban (the Cubes!), “Raving Fans” by Ken Blanchard, “the Ultimate Sales Letter” by Dan Kennedy, and “80/20 Sales and Marketing” by Perry Marshall.
Shreya, on the other hand, is still on her fiction detour and is reading “Devil in the White City” and is avidly researching intellectual property issues – particularly those related to trademarks and copyrights. It’s always good to stay current and there’s always more to learn! Plus, she feels as though she receives a book report from Colin on the books he reads and, though she’s never been a subscriber of Cliffs Notes, it has lulled her into a false feeling that she read the books herself.
I think we took a bit of a musical break this month as far as new music goes. We have listened to a lot of oldies and goodies: David Allen Coe, the Righteous Brothers, Elvis, Loretta Lynn, Johnny Cash, Huey Lewis and the News, the Rolling Stones, and so on.
This next month Shreya will be ramping up for SXSW by obsessively reading music blogs and compiling a playlist with her friends from UT-Austin of who they are most excited about for that festival – it’s coming up! Get excited!
So, this, I think, is worth watching in the spirit of love and February, Vishen Lakhiani is a recent discovery of mine, but I like his style! Definitely implementing this.
Do you have any suggestions for us? What should we put on our music and book list?
