Hi everyone! ;D

I'm Kirsten and I've been a Brokeback fan pretty much since the moment I watched. It really affected me and left me sitting there after credits, still thinking about it....

Anyway, I'm looking forward to posting around here and meeting some new people :) I've been looking for a nice, active BBM forum that I could join, and this one seems perfect.

If you ever want to chat, just send me a message!

Kirsten ~*~

Hi Kirsten, nice to meet you.  I'm Larz - also new here.  The people here are very nice and I hope you enjoy your stay!   ;D

Hi, Everyone -

I've been here for a few weeks, finally registered and now
finally introducing myself. I would really like to feel a part of this
great little community and I know that that won't happen if I don't
reach out.

I live in a very small town in Maine, have a
college-age son, work for an educational non-profit,
have been separated from my husband for a year this month, and
we have a court date in a couple of weeks for our
divorce hearing after 14 years of marriage.
Sometimes I don't know what to say when people say they are
getting divorced. The correct response could be
"I'm sorry" but it could just as easily be "Congratulations!"
(Kind of like when someone tells you they're pregnant!)
In this case it's a little of both. We're both
sorry that it is ending in divorce - that isn't what we had in
mind when we got married - but it wasn't a
good relationship for quite a while, so that is where the
congratulations comes in. We're better as friends.

My reclusiveness is the Ennis part of me that I have
made a conscious decision to do something about
so that I don't end up with few friends in a
small little world like movie Ennis.
I took a big step, for me, and contacted someone
who posted over on Dave Cullen based soley on her use of the word
"jeesums" in one of her posts. I emailed her and asked her
what part of Maine she was from and it turns out that
she's only a little over an hour away.
We're getting together tomorrow for the first time.

I'm glad to be here at BetterMost (love the name!).
I came to talk about Ennis and Ellery (thanks, MaineWriter,
for providing the invitation), and like it here because
it isn't too big (yet). As a newcomer to forums (due to BBM)
it's kind of overwhelming over at Dave Cullen, especially for
someone like me who's pretty quiet until she gets to know people.

Welcome tamarack! I think you will enjoy it here. I have found "kindred spirits." We don't always agree ... but there is one thing we do agree upon ... we love BBM and could talk and talk about it until ... ummm ... who knows when!  ;D

Thanks, dly and David. I'm glad to be here. (Had a really good time at a Thai restaurant today, too, with the gal I met on Dave's forum. The next time we get together will be to see Brokeback again. I'm going to borrow the LCD projector that we have at work and project it on the wall so it will be big again. Don't know how that works yet, but I know that it does!) Thanks again for saying Hi.  ;D

That is such a good idea to borrow the projector!! It will be easy to get it to work. How much fun is that!!! Have a great time!
