How Sad It Is....

I have finally realized that is has almost been a month since my last post. Wow.

Well today I am home and will be home tomorrow too, not really a vacation, I got this crappy thing called an upper respitory flu. I was a little confused because I got the flu shot. Thinking that I was dying, Cody took me to the Doctors office today and he pronounced me not dying, which was a good thing! (eventhough I felt like I was or wanted to.) So needless to say I am out of work until Monday and Cody is keeping me away from Noah. It kills me not be able to hold and kiss on him, but I would rather suffer than he.

Anyhoo, I am really posting regarding something I saw today on TV while at home and bound to the couch. I saw an add for this movie called Brokeback Mountain. This movies has two fo my favorite actors in it. So at first I was intrigued, but then they showed a seen where Heath Ledgers character and Michelle Williams character were hugging in front of there kids and then they cut to a seen where Heath is Hugging an other man bare chested in the middle of the wilderness. I was confused when they called it an epic love story of our time. Several things are wrong with this statement, but I will try to keep my train of thought. How can you call this movie an epic love story? When I hear epic love story I think classics with Audrey Hepburn and movies/books like The Notebook. How can a movie about two men who portray to lead normal heterosexual lives only to lie any really have secret homosexual lives be an epic love story? This movie seems to condone that its okay to lie and sin. In this movie don't these men give the sanctity of marriage a horrible picture? They "love" their wives and children (in some cases) but keep a life with each other a secret. I am sorry but to me that's not a love story that's heartbreak. Can you imagine, you come home one night only to find out that the man you have loved, married and had kids with is really homosexual? The sad thing is this happens on a daily basis. My heart goes out to these women and family's of whom their fathers and husbands have left them and broke their hearts, all while trying to lead this secret life. I am sure some will say that its just a movie, but the sad thing is, it really happens. If I have offended anyone I am sorry, this is just my opinion. I am not homophobic, I just don't think you can call a movie full of heartbreak and lies an epic love story.

Yeah, we were threatening to take my grandpa to see that movie which he is VERY opposed to and says is an insult to TRUE cowboys. But it really is a pretty horrible storyline and it would pretty much suck to be their wives. (tear tear)

The subtitle to the movie is "Love is a force of nature."

Yeah, like leading a double life is a natural thing...

I wonder, if this movie were about a man and a woman engaged in an extramarital affair, would it still be considered an "Epic Love Story?"

The whole thing just makes me sad that people would approve of that kind of behavior.

There are not words for my true feelings about this film. Another movie in which I wonder what the true 'value' is to the public.

unfortunately, simple true love that endures doesn't make for a happening film script.

We have been teasing my father in law, who was a cowboy, about this movie for more than a month. He gets so visibly angry, it's totally worth it.

It almost makes me sick to think how people are seeing this as some kind of "breakthrough" movie.

By the way, hope you feel better soon and get to kiss your baby boy!
