June 17: Green Lantern

By Mister Curie

Green Lantern comes out in theaters today.  I'll admit that my only interest in the film is in seeing Ryan Reynolds.  I am completely unfamiliar with the comic book.  I just watched the preview and wasn't duly impressed.  This review also didn't improve my impresssion of the film.  But I think Ryan Reynolds just might get me to the theater anyways.

Curie-us Collages

By Mister Curie

Madame Curie and I were inspired by Kiley's self-actualization collage a while back and one afternoon decided to make our own collages.  According to Kiley's post, to make the collage you:

  • Step 1 – You go through magazines and rip out things that are attractive. You do this process quickly without really thinking about or analyzing why you like what you like.
  • Step 2 – Cut out the objects.
  • Step 3 – Organize the objects on a paper.
  • Step 4 – Glue them down.

The finished collage is supposed to tell you something about yourself without the filters we often impose on ourselves.  Today we are jointly posting our collages.

You can see Madame Curie's collage at her blog.

So, any thoughts about what our collages say about us?

Philadelphia Pride

By Mister Curie

I had a fantastic time at Philadelphia Pride.  Having gone last year, there weren't really any surprises.  It was just nice to feel accepted for being myself.  Madame Curie came along this year and we had a wonderful time.

Annual Pilgrimage to Zion

By Mister Curie

We are planning our annual trip back to the Intermountain West to visit my family.  This year the trip coincides with one of my little brothers getting married in the temple.  When Madame Curie and I got married we excluded her non-member family from the sealing.  In an act of karma, this year we will have the opportunity to find out what it is like to be excluded from an important family event such as a wedding.

This will be the first time being back around family since we came out to them last year as non-believers and told them that I am attracted to men.  This will also be the first time around everyone since my brother (the same one getting married) decided over Thanksgiving dinner that it was his place to tell the entire extended family about my being gay.  I don't expect anything out of the ordinary, but we could always be surprised.  It is nice to have everything out and in the open this time around.  The trip should definitely be less stressful than last year's trip.

We'll be out visiting in Utah and Idaho for a couple of weeks and we would be interested in getting together with anyone else who is so inclined.  My brother's wedding reception is the same night as the monthly MoHo party, so I'm pessimistic that we'll be able to make it to the party, although we do plan to come down for the MOM MoHo party the next weekend.  Drop me a line if you are interested in getting together.
