Anybody near Indy want to see Brokeback Mountain tonight?
It's at the Keystone Fine Arts Theatres, and while I hope it will continue there, you never know! E-mail me; I'm thinking about the 8 pm show.

Exams over yet, I hope?

unfortunately I'm to far away from Indy ... I would love to go with YOU to the theater as much as I would love to see Brokeback Mountain. BM starts on March 6 in German Theaters.

March 6? That's almost as bad as how long we've had to wait for Billy's movie (On a Clear Day) to come over here. I think it came out in September in Britain, but won't get here until April!

*G* Have you seen it already, in LA? And I ended up not going yesterday; hopefully it's still playing for another week.

Ah! But I ended up not going, so I guess that breaks the chain of coincidences? *G* Unless you're also about to quit your job... *cues eerie music*

I need to check; I'm hoping it's still playing this week!

How'd you like it? And where did you get the pic in your icon?! (or did you photoshop the two of them together?)

Errr... what job? I don't have one. I quit mine 2 years ago and have been doing freelance, but I've sat on my ass for the month doing zippo. It's a whole different kind of stress; a kinder, gentler stress... right. You're gonna do it? The world doesn't end... I think the key is to have something in mind that you want to do. I'm just drifting and that's bad. I have no conifidence in my ability to interact with other humans, and the longer I keep myself in my hobbit hole, the worse it gets. (tee hee... so far it hasn't come CLOSE to being what it was like in that horrible job I had... but now money is getting tight, and I don't have a burning ambition to do anything other than hide so this is a conundrum). You wanna come to Canada and rob banks with me?

*spoilery*

I enjoyed Brokeback Mountain. The first thing to remember is that it's a classic Ang Lee film, so the narrative is very slow. It's all about the performances. Heath Ledger was great. I'm not much of a Gyllenhaal fan, but he held his own. The sex scenes were tame, I was hoping for more (I spend too much time in slashtown I guess). I suppose Hollywood has to tread very carefully still, but with all the hype I've been hearing, I expected more. The characters (esp. Ledger) were very engaging, and I enjoyed the movie overall. I heard rumours that Kleenex was required, but I didn't need it. Sometimes though, these type of stories hit me harder on the second viewing. I'm glad I went alone, if I had dragged my mother (who is not interested in the subject matter) she would've been yawning, it's a long film.

/*spoilery*

That pic of Hugh and Robert is that one from the Fox Casino night. I photoshopped out Robert's glasses and squished them together cause they were just too adorkable there. (I wonder what they're betting on?) *stares at jeans*

I didn't know anything about them showing up at the Fox Casino night, whatever it was! Did that make it onto the House LJ? It's been busy there, so I don't read everything. CUTE!

Ah, yes, and alas... I fear the same thing might happen to me. I was out for 4 months after my last place closed down, and I LOVED IT! Part of my problem this time around is just resenting having to work (and here I am, on LJ, at work - BAD GIRL! I do this in place of breaks). Part of it is coming into a bad position, politically. And part of it is that I am weak in certain things, and those things were more necessary in this position than in my previous one.

I think I'm going to look at this as a 6 month sabbatical to get my head on straight, and limit myself as to how much of my severance money I can spend before I have to get a job. By the end of that time, I will have to either A) be in a job (if I stay in my field); B) be training for a specific job; or C) be in school for a specific job (if I decide to change my field).

Good luck with that plan. {cross fingers, SMILE}
