But Jim Nabors marrying his partner put a big smile on my face. I've always had a special place in my heart for Jim, since my mom used him as an example of why we should have tolerance and acceptance for gays. She told me this in 1975, when I was five years old. My mom was ahead of her time on that one.

In other news, just saw Warm Bodies and loved it. Great movie, a zom rom com. It's worth it, trust me.

My mom was big on gay rights and fond of Jim Nabors too! She didn't talk to me about it when I was five, but both my parents raised me to never use slurs or talk bad about gay people. I still remember my dad having "the talk" with me after I saw something on the news.

I'm on the fence about whether I want to see Warm Bodies. I read the book and found it to be kind of magical, unique, and more thought provoking than a "young adult" novel about zombies should be. I loved the book, and it made me think things and feel feelings. I loved the perspective of it, the language, everything about the book.

And I feel like based on the trailer, it looks like they may have taken the self-reflective magical quality out of it and turned it into just another supernatural teen romance. Eh...I would love it if the movie was similar to the book but if it's not, I'll just be disappointed.

Huh. In that case, this movie might be a letdown. It does have some sensitivity to it, but mostly it's just funny. This is a good thing, it's truly funny and sweet. But it is probably lacking the magical quality you're talking about.

But the guy who plays R is amazing. He's really, really good.
