Fassy Fumes that she felt light head and nauseated... but it makes for interesting headlines for tabloids to go a step further and say that she got "sick" on him. Drama queens.
On Friday, my friend Laurie and I went to see 'Shame' at the State Theater here in Ann Arbor, along with a few dozen other folks. There was no snickering, chit-chatting, or walking about...it appeared that everyone was really into the film. It was the first time I saw it since TIFF and I was better able to take the film in much better a second time around. Laurie felt the first part of the film started off slow, but she came to enjoy the movie and felt Michael did a great job and was very brave to do what he did. Afterwards we went to Starbucks to decompress and talk about the film. She told me that it was good that a film like Shame was made because it made her recall a boyfriend from her teenage years who came from a suspicious family upbringing, who displayed behaviors like Brandon did. So in that regard, Shame is a movie that is relevant and is about a taboo topic that some people really do not understand, but yet, may have known someone, or know someone, who suffers from this condition. The theater had the 'bed' poster of Shame, that's my least favorite one. If they had the one of him alone, or with Carrie, I would have requested they give it to me once they were finished with it, but I'm going to pass on requesting this poster they have.
These next 10 days are going to be hectic for me as I have two big papers due for my classes, and they are due two days apart. So I'm going to appreciate this quiet time on the Fassy news front for the time being. And lucky for me, once I'm over this academic obligation hump, St. Patrick's Day will be on a Saturday and I aim to be in the partying mood.
As per the latest on Plan B, the birthday greetings are coming in from all over the world, so thank you to those who are interested in participating. On Michael's birthday, I will reveal the birthday gift - with pictures even - and I am confident that everyone who is part of Plan B will be very proud of being associated with it. So hold tight until April 2nd where I will lift the veil off the prize like an overpaid grinning game show hostess!
