The coffee social last Friday night had a good turnout with 37 people. It was a nice mixture of Deaf GLBT professionals and Gallaudet students. It's a small world and therefore, likely to have this kind of mixture. As always, it was good to see some old friends and acquaintances as well as meeting new people.


I finally saw Terms of Endearment, starring Shirley MacLaine and Jack Nicholson.

Boy, that movie made me cry! Made me wanna watch Beaches once again. Overall, I enjoyed it and cannot believe that I hadn't seen this movie until now.

I think any movie that involves cancer is just gonna make cry easily, due to my mother's death.


I absolutely liked Saved! This movie had me laughing at various scenes and lines. It's sorta like the Christian version of Mean Girls.

Mary and Dean are boyfriend and girlfriend. One summer, Dean shares that he might be gay. Mary thinks that she's received word from Jesus to save him. So, she loses her virginity for him. His folks discover a gay magazine in his room and send him to Mercy House, which is like a Christian rehabilitation site to deal with just about anything.

Then, Mary finds out she's pregnant. Worse, it's her senior year at a Christian school.

She's friends with these 2 girls, which they're all in a all-girls Christian band. However, these 2 friends turn out to be more holier-than-thou than Mary can take in, especially when they keep rubbing the gay boyfriend in her face.

Then, there's Cassandra, who is like a devil's spawn and the whole school is praying for her salvation. Mary eventually befriends Cassandra and Roland (Macaulay Culkin).

Life happens and it doesn't always bring the best results, or rather the Christian results. We deal with it and we just don't need further judgment from other people.

If you're in the mood for a good laugh, then check this movie out!


Watched Imaginary Heroes, starring Sigourney Weaver and Jeff Daniels.

This movie is about a family dealing with the suicide of the eldest son. This is a slow paced movie and you won't discover the most interesting part of the family until the end of the movie.


Into the Blue was alright. We were told that this was a great movie.

So, we popped in the DVD and watched it. Eh. I wouldn't call it a great movie...just so-so.

It's about 4 divers, in Bahamas, and they've discovered some buried treasures as well as a sunken plane with a shitload of cocaine that'll make any drug dealer die happy. Well, maybe not. Anyways, 2 of the divers wanna retrieve the coke and sell it and live off well. The other two are like...no way, let's just stick with the buried treasures and live well.

Well, greed comes into the picture and endangers everyone's lives.

I considered this a slow paced movie as well. It didn't start to get really good until the end.


Sigh... The Broncos lost to the Steelers.

So, now the SuperBowl game is with the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Seattle Seahawks. Well, Seattle has never won the SuperBowl, so I'm gonna root for them.

SuperBowl XL - Sunday, February 5th in Detroit.


Watched American Idol (TiVo) last night, 2 weeks worth.

Lawdy! Simon's comments are getting more brash.

I'm still amazed how people show up to audition, as well as being televised, and making a fool out of themselves. If you can't sing, then you can't sing.


I am curious to check out Nanny McPhee, which is said to be a mixture of Mary Poppins and Willy Wonka.

Speaking of movies, I'm still waiiiiiiiting for Brokeback Mountain to be captioned. I'm sure that this isn't just pissing me off but other Deafies as well. Hmmmmph!

By the way, BBM continues to be a box office hit.


News of the Day:

On Friday, a judge in Maryland has ruled that the marriage law is unconstitutional and that the state must marry gays. This case will now go to the Court of Appeals before being finalized.

Of course, Governor Robert Ehrlich is gonna fight this ruling.

Meanwhile, Virginia Governor Tim Kaine says he disagrees with the language of the of the constitutional amendment, banning gay marriage but says he will sign it anyway.

It's his first week in office and he's already lost his balls to stand his ground. Goodness!


Well, ta ta for now...
