2.5 Seconds of Fame

On Wednesday night we went to the HBO screening of All Aboard! Rosie's Family Cruise.
It was at the AMC in dowtown Chicago.
I brought Tammy, my mom and my brother.
My sister and her fiance couldn't make it.
It was a great night!

We found some seats and then went to get free popcorn and pop.
Kelli saw us and said hi and gave us hugs.
I was amazed that she remembered our names.
With all the people she meets...how can she remember our names?
She's good.

The movie was awesome.
I saw my face for 2.5 seconds.
I think my brother really liked the film.
He told me afterwards...I never thought of it as a vacation away from prejudice.
He thought it was just a fun vacation.
He also told me he was thinking of going to a gay/straight alliance meeting on campus.
Wow.
I love my brother.

My mom enjoyed the film too.
I think.
She doesn't say too much.
Maybe it just all needed to sink in.

There was a buffet dinner after the show at a hotel near by.
Wow...good food.
We sat with a family we met at the Chicago COLAGE meeting in December.
Kelli and a couple that was in the film and a lawyer from Lambda Legal held a Q&A.
It was a really nice evening out.

It made me sad because we can't go to Alaska.
We need to start saving our pennies now for 2007!
I also need a new job that pays MORE than a stinking teacher's salary.

All Aboard! Rosie's Family Cruise....HBO...April 6th.
Watch it! It's good.

Sounds great....I think that our moms should talk! Doesn't say much...sometimes I feel like I have put her through so much! Gay daughter having twins....sounds like a news clip right?

Thanks for keeping us up to date! We are hoping to make the NYC screening, on board the Dawn!!! Maybe we can PRETEND that we are cruising around the world!
