1.The Sopranos
Abel and I have been watching The Sopranos together since May, and this week we arrived at the final season. It’s been a long journey, and I’ll be sad when it’s over…but the season six opener has a HUGE cliffhanger and I can’t wait until we watch the next episode! Abel has already seen the whole series, but after he bought it back in May, he was nice enough to commit to watching all of it with me. I love watching this with him because it might have its horrifying moments (there was only one scene that was too much for me to watch), but it delves so deeply into the characters, and Abel and I always have something to talk about after each episode. Before reaching the final season, we watched what is probably the saddest episode of the series on Monday. I’m not going to give anything away, but the emotion of it stuck with me for days afterward, which I believe attests to the show’s artistry. Go watch it! All of it!

2.Babysitting
I babysat for the first time! I mean, I’ve watched family members before, but this was the real deal. Abel and I watched our friends’ baby (the one I took pictures of) on Monday night, and I was pretty nervous. One of my biggest fears is that I’m going to be a terrible parent because I wouldn’t know what to do…but of course I wasn’t going to say that. It actually went very well. Probably because Elise was asleep most of the time. I have to say, Abel is a baby whisperer, or Elise just loves him. This does NOT mean I’m baby crazy.

3.Documentary update
I’ve got good news and bad news. The good news is, we finally interviewed a Johns Committee victim! He was excited to talk to us, and we got plenty of great material for the film. He was funny too; he just happened to be at Stonewall (a turning point in LGBT history), but didn’t think it was all that important, so he didn’t even tell us about it until after we were done. You should have seen how quickly we reset the lights and cameras! The bad news is, the Orlando PRIDE parade was supposed to be on Saturday, but because of the nonstop rain, it was canceled. Hopefully they’ll reschedule. We made the parade the bookends of the film, so it would be problematic if it doesn’t happen. More to come next week.

 

 

4.The hills are alive!
I really want to watch The Sound of Music. I don’t know why. On Saturday, I was just in a movie musical mood, but instead, I went to Joel’s place and played Mario Party and watched Batman Begins. That’s close, right?
