On the quiz, 7/10

That quiz was funny. I think the true testament of my "BBM obsession" is the fact that I have the screener vid running ALL DAY (as long as I am awake). Just yesterday I watched the movie 4 times! My mom laughs now when she enters my room because the movie is always on. Lol. I just love hearing it in the background. No matter what I'm doing, I just need to have it on. Is that weird?

PS: Don't even get me started on the BBM soundtrack. That is ALL I listen to in my car.  :D :D

OUR SITE FEATURED IN NEW JERSEY PAPER:
The Courier piece also included other members of our family here, including Karin Dicker, a true brokebackaholic who emails me several bbm links a day. She is the first person quoted in the story. I'm not sure who else was included, but we spent a lot of time with the writer, who was a great guy.
And the direct link to the piece featuring us is:

I was also honored to be quoted in the piece -- Robert Baxter is a beautiful person.
There ain't no reins on this one.

RE: The great Courier Post articles - I have updated the link on my original post as the old one that you are quoting no longer works.

Here it is again: http://www.courierpostonline.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?Category=SJMAG


RE: Brokeaholic Quiz.
 
The quiz is really really tough, I only scored a 2 as well, but give me time.

One of the two I scored was: "Have you bought cans of beans for the first time in years after seeing Ennis and Jake cook them over a campfire?" I sure did, I even did a web search to see if the BetterMost brand was available. No such luck, but there is a business opportunity there.




Well, after scoring a 10 and finding the questions eerily familiar to me, I realized author Robert Baxter had based it on his interview with me -- he uses my name at the end, and I'm proud as can be to be a Brokeaholic!!

8 out of 10. No on the mug and although I only bought the soundtrack once I have bought Close Range three times cause I keep lending it out and do not get it back. Went to Texas last month and just got the poster which will be framed. Oh and did buy beans, 'cept I added chili fixin's. Does that count?

That is so funny! I got a four, only because I haven't got two of those CDs in my car. I do, however, have it on my iPod and listen to the sountrack constantly. What was missing from the quiz for me is "has the short story memorized and finds herself quoting it at the oddest times and places..." :)

Thanks for being interviewed! You did great.

I scored a 2. Seen the movie twice and have surfed the net an unhealthy amount looking for BBM related things for the past 2 months.

seven outta ten here..the mug would be nice. I just have one cd, I dont know if I'm obsessed as the susan person. Not only have I desire to live in the west, I'm returning there. I came east just 18 months now. I miss the mountains the thin air, the cowboys and blue skies. I don't feel alone anymore, I can with the social climate.
I've been 12x. enjoy it each and every time. :)
The impact has been worldwide.

I only scored 1  :(  Been searching the net for anything and everything...

Maybe I'd have scored higher if they'd asked the following:

11.  Have you taken up smoking again in a vain attempt to become Jack and Ennis up on the mountain?

12.  Have you started speaking in a Wyoming accent, and pepper your speech with phrases and nuances that are alien to your own background?  (Answer to this question is "Hell, yeah!")

13.  Do you spend most of your waking hours hanging out with your new ranchin' buddies on Dave Cullen's forum?

14.  Have you forgotton what your Significant Other looks like, or indeed that you have one at all?

Heh -- they should have added a bonus question:

Did you bid on the shirts?

That would have been a surefire tip-off

It would have been a surefire tip-off that the respondent had bux delux - the final selling price for the shirts Monday was $101,000.

15. Do you start yawning when people try to discuss other films?

16. Do you have to consciously suppress your extensive knowledge of where Jake and Heath are at all times? "Oh, he's getting fitted for the Oscars at Armani today..."

17. Have you cancelled your annual Oscar party so that you chat on this site instead of having real, live annoying people in your living room blathering on while you're trying to lip-read what the cast is talking about at their table?

19. Did you force yourself to detox from BBM due to unhealthy lifestyle since watching the movie?

20. Did the movie impact on your personal life

god, i'm only a one.

but i think i deserve extra points for not just spending a lot of time on the web with it but STARTing a website on it. hehehe.

and the question about listening to the CD over and over, i think that's a sign of a non brokebackaholic. a true holic can't bear to hear that music.

and my shrink has forbidden me from seeing the film again.
