Brokeback Mountain

Partially at Toby's urging [see previous post], I went to see the movie last night. Weekday, 9:35 showing, just me and two women watching. I can see why it's got Oscar buzz, it's got lots of emotional tugs.

Some thoughts
1) The guys screwed up every relationship in their life, except maybe as fathers.
2) I haven't had the gutwrenching emotional pain that you don't understand, to the point that punching a brick wall feels good. Take it back a couple of notches, and I know exactly what it feels like.
3) If I move to the Tiny Texas Town, where my parents live, I might as well just castrate myself.
4) While I'm pondering being gay and fatherhood, today I learn that one friend is pregnant, and another friend has had a vasectomy. I don't know what the heck I'm feeling, so I kicked it into doctor mode and made a few medically related comments.

Time for a little diphenhydramine tonight, maybe the weekend will be better with Mardi Gras.
