I mean, seriously...
-9/11 10-year anniversary.
-American Apparel once again proves how sensitive and positive a company they are.
-Troy Davis executed, becoming a martyr and a poster child for how capital punishment fails us.
-Don't Ask/Don't Tell finally ends, which is GOOD, but brings out some pretty strong emotions and GOP candidate/constituent FAIL.
-Jamey Rodemeyer commits suicide, bringing further attention to the issues of bullying and the impact on the LGBT community. Support the It Gets Better Project!
And my granny took a nose-dive this month and seems to be fading faster and faster. Being a caretaker sucks. I'm glad to do it and wouldn't have it any differently, but it still sucks.
+Comfort Food (besides me going on daily Starbuck's pillages):
+New blogs I've found and enjoyed:
-Picked up some mighty sweet crochet patterns from PlanetJune.
-craftyminx, plus-size crafty maven! Wanna learn how to crochet? School is in session
+My favorite post this month:
-I Am Mine, after going to see PJ20.
+Movies I've watched:
-PJ20, I had no idea that Cameron Crowe did Almost Famous and it's basically about his life. Wow!
-Ponyo, adorable! I love Miyazaki and this one is not at all creepy! I'm worried that he may be sacrificing creepy for Disney-fication though, but I haven't seen some of his other films that are targeted for a younger set.
-The Princess and the Frog, another anti-depressant. First Disney film I've ever openly debated.
-Red Dragon, the prequel to Silence of the Lambs. My beau has never seen any of the films and this one was surprisingly better than I remembered it. Ralph Fiennes is so deliciously evil...
-Mystery Science Theater 3000, OMG this is like my go to anti-depressant! It's totally for geeks and the films are indeed painful, but I remember fondly being a little baby Sara staying up late watching MST3K. Here's Mike and his robot friends shredding a short film about hygiene. Priceless.
