Welcome to BetterMost white_angel!  It's so nice that you found your way here.  It's fascinating to hear about Brokeback's impact in the Philippines.  I hope you have lots of fun exploring the forums here.

I am looking forward to more interaction as well.  You are from Scotland, right?  That part of the world is so beautiful - it is where I got engaged.


I'm indeed - from just outside Glasgow. Where did you get engaged?

Welcome white_angel! Glad to have you here!

Okay so I have just spent about a half an hour writing my intro when I hit some wrong key and the whole site shut down on me :( I am not up to writing it again right now, but will try to do so later. Meanwhile, I want to say "Hi" to Meryl Marie and Peachy who I have had the privlege of meeting in real life :)

The very short version...my husband and I just watched Brokeback for the first time last week, and though we found it a bit slow at times, I in particular felt deeply moved by it...so much so that I ended up paying the balance on the movie at the video rental store yesterday so I could keep it ;)

As to *why* we hadn't watched until now...that is the main subject of the long post I just lost and will have to wait till another time.

Welcome to BetterMost iorhael!!!  I'm sorry to hear about the frustrating situation of losing your first intro message by hitting the wrong key... I've definitely been in that situation myself before.  Anyway, can't wait to hear more about how you found your way to BetterMost.  And, I hope you have lots of fun exploring the forums here.

Want a cup of coffee and a piece of cherry cake?  :D

Welcome Iorael......I hope you enjoy yourself here.

What a pain, losing all your post....you have me wondering "WHY" you hadn't watched until now.
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

Hey, Deb, welcome to BetterMost!  I'm glad to know that you and I now share more than LOTR as an obsession interest.   ;D

I'd be glad to know the rest of your post when you feel like getting around to it.  Meanwhile, pull up a log and stick a boot in the fire.  ;D
