Okay, enough about me

A few random things that aren’t quite as self-centred as the last few posts have been…

1. I have become a little obsessed with desire to see this film. I was already fascinated with it months ago when I first heard about it, but now have become even more so after hosting a strong and passionate Liberian woman in my home. It costs about $300 to host a community showing of the film. This morning it occurred to me that I could probably rally enough interested women to make it worthwhile ordering a copy and planning an event. Anyone interested in joining me?

2. I want to believe in “innocent until proven guilty”, but if he is indeed guilty, I sincerely hope Rihanna has the sense and strength to walk away from Chris Brown. I don’t normally care much about the “lifestyles of the rich and famous”, but my impressionable daughters care a little too much, and they need to know that it is NOT OKAY for a man to beat a woman and then for a woman to walk back into the situation (unless he gets some good help and is truly reformed).

3. Every fibre of my being is longing for Spring! It is not healthy for me right now to be visiting blogs of people who live in places where grass is starting to grow and buds are bursting out all over. If you post pictures like that, I may have to ignore you for a month or so until it happens here.

Yeah, I saw a preview for this movie a little while ago and kept hoping that maybe the art gallery or cinemateque would show it. I would totally be willing to help out if you decided to go for it.

I'm a little to far away for a movie nite, and if I get on a plane it's going to head towards Spring!
Congrats by the way, that's a lot of money you've raised, many many lives you've impacted, so even without the honours you should feel, very, very proud.

if i was around i would look into renting the park for the evening. or if you wanted, talk to susan and make it a 3d event and then you'll have a built in audience!

I am horrified by the example Rihanna has set for the young women who follow look up to her...

I've posted, and you can feel free to ignore. But neener, neener, spring is coming!

we ARE in a warmer area -- but it snowed here last night - so you can give me a high five. snort.

I know several women in abusive relationships. It's like they are blind, and deaf. sigh.

That film looks amazing. I'll bet you can get enough interested people together to divide up the cost.
