Today it's 5 fucking years since I very innocently put the BBM DVD into the player for the very first time.
Little did I know that this simple action would change my life forever.

It changed my life in so many ways, that today I can't really keep track of them all.
Heck, I can hardly remember what my life was like before!
Suffice to say, I now think of my life as pre-BBM or post-BBM.

Thank you, all my wonderful brokie friends, for being you and for doing this amazing journey with me!!!   :-* :-* :-*

I'm very glad you watched that DVD, Sonja!  I watched the movie twice this week, as it's showing on cable and I can't pass it up.  Yep, still awesome.  8)

Only the other day I was at my hairdresser, and the subject of Brokeback Mountain came up.....now she has been listening to me talk about it since day one.....and she said, gee how long ago was it when you first saw it ?....and I said, it had to be 4 or 5 years now..........

Soooooooooooo, I am totally amazed that it is 7 years...actually I didnt see it here until the March, so its not quite 7 years yet for me.

For me, the most amazing thing that has come from seeing the movie, has been making so many friends with people who have this movie and what it means, in common with each other. The icing on the cake, was actually meeting some of these friends on my trip to America, which 7 years ago, was something, I never imagined I would do.

And even now, after all this time, I still talk about the movie, and bring it up in reference to so many other parts of life. Like so many of you, it is in my soul, and is so much a part of who I am today.
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

I just read this whole thread, and am feeling very grateful for all of you.   :-*

Today is my seventh anniversary.  I clearly recall seeing the 4pm matinee on a nasty, rainy cold Friday.  So glad I always carry a handkerchief.  I remember talking my best friend's ear off that night, then dragging her to see it with me the next day.  Then buying the short story, the soundtrack (I used to dislike country music), the screenplay.  I discovered the IMDb message board in January and CaseyCornelius' brilliant threads, and I was hooked.  I even printed out some of them early threads at the time.  Then joining BetterMost in April 2006.

Even though I dragged most of my friends to see it with me, I didn't encounter another Brokie until I hosted the Boston party in September 2006. When I look at the group photo, I'm amazed that I am still in touch with 18 out of 20 people who attended.  Since then, I have had the good fortune to meet many more wonderful friends. I even met Jake on the 7th anniversary last weekend!

Because, even though I have spent an obscene amount on BBM-related stuff, it's the people that matter the most.
