Azaelia, I also wanted to say welcome, it is really good to have you here.

I understand your hesitation about jumping in to the forums, but everyone around here is really great.

I am sorry that you come here first following such sad circumstances, but I look forward to reading more of your thoughts/perspectives.

I first saw Brokeback Mountian when I was 17, shortly after it hit theaters, with one of my closest girl friends. She had said she was going, and I decided to go along, just to see what it was all about. I wound up entranced by the movie. I'd never seen anything like it, and I think it's safe to say I never will again. I hadn't expected it to be so beautiful, both in terms of images and in terms of emotions it evoked. It was, in a word, heartshattering. I cry fairly frequently when watching movies, but no movie has made me cry the way this one did. It means so much to me, but I don't know how to put a lot of it into words. One thing's for sure, though. It has a special place in my heart, and I'm NEVER going to forget it.

Azaelia, I'm glad to see you here.  Your experience sounds much like my own.  You express yourself beautifully, too, so I hope you will find your way to the Open Forum and give us the benefit of your thoughts.  Please make yourself at home.  Yes, there are old-timers here, but BetterMost is a very welcoming group.  You'll fit in in no time.  :)

hello all.

my name is leigh-ann.  i'm 30.  i'm married.  "got two little girls"....and i live in the middle of freakin' nowhere, which is port alberni, bc, canada.
i think we might be on a map by now...but i'm not sure.  lol

i used to write on the other bbm forum, and visited here a few times last year.
anyways, i'm a bbm fanatic.  love jake.  loved heath.  love michelle.  love 'em all.  i think i've seen the movie about thirty times or so.  i've introduced it to 7 straight guys over the years, including my hubby, and they all loved it, even though they thought they wouldn't. 
i am a christian, but don't let that scare you off.  like i said, i love the movie, i love the story, and i love the actors, and i just happened to love god too.
i don't judge, so please don't classify me in "that" category....
although i'm embarrassed by how many fellow christians act, i'm still very proud to be one because i honor god's name by loving people, not judging.  so no "fire and brimstone" crowds for me   lol.........however, i do like to smarten up once in a while and go to church socials.  lol

so thanks for the warm welcome's already.  it's good to be here.

H forsythia and redazalea,

Welcome to Bettermost!  I'm glad you chose to join our community.  There are a lot of friendly folks here and it shouldn't take long to make new friends.  I know that it sometimes seems a bit intimidating to try to fit into a group of people who have all known each other for a while.  It can feel a bit like dropping in on someone else's high school reunion, but we are a pretty diverse and friendly lot, and we genuinely enjoy it when someone new joins us! 

Nice to meet you both!

Thanks Toycoon!

It's the closest photo I've found so far to what Ma Twist's cake actually seems to look like from what we can make of it in the background of the Lightning Flat scene.
