Jackie is safe in the Ark now.  :o

Lawd, I was thinking the other day on Rosh Hashana that is was the anniversary of the big cook out at Paul's former home in Boston, because that woman left early "its my new year!" she said. I can see her plain as day. I cannot remember her screen name. She had Springsteen's rear end as her avatar.

And I met Andrew and Laurel drove us from the theater to his house and after that gathering she was never seen or heard from again. All these people fall away. Like little onion peals. What did is all mean?

I will probably wonder the rest of my life. 

Hey Tru, yes it was our 8th Boston anniversary last week.  As for Springsteen's ass, that was Sandy, screen name memento (far left in the photo).  She often shows up for our AIDS walks gatherings.  As does Andrew.  You're right, Laurel kinda disappeared.  As did Joe.  However, I have seen everyone else in this photo at least several times since 2006.  In fact, I am seeing Lisa next week!

Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

You bet, Chuck!

Here's more nostalgia:  in the lobby of the Coolidge Corner Theatre, before the group viewing.  Love Tru's face!

They're not dolls, they're piñatas.  I bought them from the party store, and painted one with blue eyes and black hair. 

Leslie won them in the cherry cake bake-off (second prize; first prize went to Sandy and she won the drag queen sheep).

I thought Laurel was one of the three-person team behind Finding Brokeback, the wonderful web site that diagrams all the shooting locations. I tried to contact her to ask her to take down the precise location of the stash on Brokenback Mountain before it disappeared, but there was no answer.
Too much to do. . .I don't have time to get old!

That's Lauren, aka tamarack (far right in the group shot above).  I might have her email somewhere, if you'd like.

Ah yes, Brokie-versaries!

This December will mark the 9th anniversary of my seeing the movie for the first time, in Montclair, NJ.

The 10th is coming up!

I will probably wonder the rest of my life. 

What I wonder about is how we came together in the first place. Ours never was the typical fandom, and the people who stayed around are not the kind of people who run in fandoms. I have been so blessed to meet and know people who I never would have had the chance to meet otherwise. Without Brokeback Mountain and BetterMost, I would have gone my dreary way for the rest of my life, unknown, unloved, unchallenged. Instead, a story about two lonely sheep herders, written by a fiercely unsentimental author, has changed my life forever. And the biggest change is knowing there are people like me out there, being able to reach out to them and know them, even though some have passed through only briefly and even though I may never meet some of them in so-called "real life."
