 :)     Hi, Merr, Susie, Roland!
     
        More about me....Well, I'm about to go out for a walk, which I do quite a bit.   Just got back from a day trip to a casino yesterday.  It's called Buffalo Bill's and yes, there are indeed cowboys there!   
        I also like day spas.  And sometimes I like my job of teaching English to college students.... and other times I want to chuck it all and go join the Peace Corps.    I prefer my second job of assessing placement test essays, which tend to be filled with all sorts of goofy sentences.  If you would like to see some of these howlers, do let me know.
        I sell a lot of stuff on eBay and at half dot com.   
That's it for now.....My walking partner is on the way.    Thanks again  for your lovely and animated welcomes!

Hi everyone!

So, thanks again for the sweet welcome posts! I am very delighted to be the 1000th member.  :)

Okay let me tell me something about myself. ;)
I am Ally-at-BetterMost, a twenty-something, student, soon living together with my bf of five years, music freak (I particularly love everything U2 and MUSE), BBM fan for a month, maybe two months now (I can't recall anymore, I've been too hooked on that film :laugh:). I am both a Heathen and Gyllenhaalic, I just love their work and attitudes! I love going to concerts and going to the cinema. BBM is the first film ever that got me hooked in a way I have never experienced before. It got me thinking about so many things...  :-\ ;)  ;D

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me!

Cheers,

Ally

LOL just the coffee please!  ;D ;)

Thank you for your welcome post and your story, Merrily! Yes, I also started at IMDB, but was quickly 'referred' to BetterMost! No trolls!  ;D

Ally - given your sig line (plus the MUSE reference) - I'm guessing you must be UK or at least Euro based - I love a bit of the Kaiser Chiefs - Ruby Ruby Ruby RUUBBBY!!!! Ahahahahaha!

Congrats Ally for being the 1,000 member,

Hi my name is Debbie and I have been on the this forum for a few months and it's been great. Sure you don't want the cherry cake? I am 56 years old and never has a movie obsessed me like this. It does get you thinking. Just yesterday I went out and bought the soundtrack to the movie and I am listening to it as I am typing. I can't even tell you how many times I've watched this movie. I fall asleep with it on. The bottom line, is you are not alone and you are not crazy.( I felt like I was) :-\

When I first realized how Brokeback got me it was a bit scary until I found folks just like me! So sit back and enjoy the ride. "There ain't no reins on this one."

Debbie (Delmardeb)


For how long? As long as we can ride it; ain't no reins on this one.

Meryl, I firmly believe that if more people went to day spas, they wouldn't have to go to the doctor so much.

Ally:  I love U2 as well!

Merr, yep, had a nice long walk, thanks.  Too bad it's like a blast furnace around here.     :P

Hi and welcome, Ally!  Glad to have another youngster on Team BBM.  It truly is one of those rare movies that speaks to folks of all ages.  I'm 58 myself, and getting younger every day.  ;)

Lots of us here came over from IMDb and are contentedly settled in our new digs.  Grab a seat on a log, stick a boot in the fire, and gab away!  ;D

Welcome again Ally!  Hope you have lots of fun exploring the forums.  I'm Amanda and I co-moderate the Social Events forum with my good bud Front-Ranger.  I've been here at BetterMost since early April 2006 and am also a refugee from IMDb. I had been active over there for maybe a month or so before moving to BetterMost permanently.   I'm 32 and am a big music fan myself.  Up until my Brokie-fever hit, most of my online activities had centered around music.  Anyway, we're a really friendly bunch around here and hope you feel right at home!

Here's an extra decadent cup of coffee to help celebrate your arrival.

Meryl, I'm curious about your name.  Is that a nickname?  My name is Merrily and my siblings call me Merrill - I think it is pronounced like your name.  I am also an IMDB refuge.

Merrily

Yes, Merr, it's a nickname.  My real name is Cynthia, but I almost never use it online, preferring Meryl.   I picked it because I like the name and feel like it suits me.  I like your name, too, as well as other variations on it (I have a cousin named Merrell, went to school with a girl named Merrilee).   It's pretty. :)

We may end up getting each other's PMs occasionally, since the software automatically fills in the name when you start to type it.  If the sender isn't paying attention, uh-oh!  ;)
