If laboured comic timing be the fruit of love...

Hunky Ash-win, gay Ash-win, Ash-win wearing a leather jacket and talking to plants Ash-win.

Aren't you already sick of Ash-win?

Ashwin is the name of a character in A Perfect Relationship, a play that has five actors who won't say Ushwin like they're supposed to. I don't see why. They're all Indians with names like Sameer and Sukhesh. It can get on your nerves, this Ash-win situation, especially when the duration of the ordeal from an hour and a half could be brought down to 45 minutes. Either chop the crap or funny up the script. Right now it's an anecdote parading as an epic, a piddly ball of dough stretched into pizzas for the entire cast. The name sounded so inviting. What a waste.

Is Ash-win cute? and most importantly single?

Ash-win knows the names of plants and makes coffee and breakfast, unasked. I don't know about single (in real life, you mean, right?). Cute- sure, in an I wouldn't mind way.

Ash-win is a win-win guy, I hope he is single in real life.

My tattoo guy (in Goa) had a fake Brit accent and insisted on me calling him Ash.

Not even Ash-win. Only Ash :)

Oh, I agree...A Pefect Relationship was an ordeal!

And, THAT condition is Idiopathic Colonic Intussusception. I play host only to important sounding conditions.
