It was from your mom, and that's why you were crying.

My mom used to write me the most excruciatingly boring letters. I never saved any of them.

I'd cry if I found one, stuck in an old book, or something.


Ha! Call Guinness! I caught her with tears during a sad part of a romantic film. This is a first for me in the 6 years I've known Lisa. "Misting up" is usually my job, I'm usually the softy around here. Go figure...

She's missing her mum.


"Titanic" was one of those fistfull of Kleenex movies for me.

It was pretty embarrassing, since I usually hold it all in until I'm alone.


Ditto what Vero said. Not surprising at all. I almost always tear up when I see Queen Elizabeth on TV because she looks so much like my late Grandma. It's perfectly natural that watching something you watched with your Mom would make you miss her and be emotional, especially right after your birthday.


Oh sure you guys! Thanks alot! I finally get to say that Lisa got emotional instead of me, simply because of a movie, and you have to ruin it by making me feel bad that I called her on it! Sure... I see how it is! You guys really do stick together don't you?

    A collection of lyrical short stories from Annie Proulx that contains Brokeback Mountain among other gems. (****)
  • John Grisham: The Innocent Man
    I can only quote from the jacket blurb: "If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you." A must read. (*****)

  • Jack Olsen: Charmer
    Riveting true crime by a master. (****)

    Excellent telling of the Bart Corbin cases. (****)
