Obviously I don't know HOW religious or conservative COS's family is, but he also shouldn't come out if he thinks they might send him to one of these terrifying gay-reeducation camps for teens. Some of these are overseas or in states with legal loopholes that keep religious-run facilities from being regulated in the same way hospitals or boarding schools would be. This is a very scary documentary:

This month's issue of Food Network magazine (don't hate, it's in my office waiting room) has Alton Brown's recipe for homemade candy corn. HOMEMADE. CANDY. CORN. Isn't that like deciding to make homemade saltines?

To go back into the hell of your awful bio-family to rescue your nephew puts you in the pantheon of heroes of the Underground Railroad and the Holocaust. You risked your sanity and sense of self to rescue a helpless rejected child, and you didn't come out unscathed. But you have changed his life. I just erected a statue of you in my soul.

Take my love, take my land,
Take me where I cannot stand.
I don't care, I'm still free
You can't take the sky from me...
Feb 10, 2012 Fangdoc commented on A Film for Now: Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father.
YES! I was not at all prepared for that movie. Interestingly, I was just thinking about it the other day: I couldn't remember the title, but then I realized I neither wished to ever watch it again nor recommend it to anyone because it was so heartwrenching. I was destroyed by even attempting to imagine what those poor parents went through, and I watched it before I had my own son. Now, I hug my 15-month-old and weep.

That looks way more fun than DDR.

@3, yeah, Goblet of Fire has dragons but it makes almost no sense. It's more like "Unconnected Scenes from HP & the Goblet of Fire." And the Quidditch World Cup had no quidditch in it! I know it was the first of the BIG books, but they cut out way too much while making us go to the Winter Ball in pretty much real time. Sorry, it is the weakest link in the filmography so far.

My engagement ring that I wear daily previously belonged to my mother-in-law, and they have been divorced for years. True, she's alive, they're civil to one another, and there were no tabloids or Camillas involved.

But we looked at it as: a symbol of the marriage that resulted in my husband's birth, and a perfectly pretty ring that we couldn't otherwise have afforded at that stage of our lives.

Besides, screw the ring: I want to see the dress!

My husband and I find that we have strikingly similar core beliefs (socially liberal, fiscally conservative), we just reach different political conclusions from them. I think the main thing that keeps us married during election season is that both of us end up holding our noses and voting, since it's incredibly rare that either one of us can support any given candidate wholeheartedly. So I may be more liberal, he may be more libertarian, but we're both staunch cynics.
