Again, James, why can't you compare them?

Gay couples have to overcome obstacles to be together. Society, in general, disapproves. Family may disapprove. They may have to make extreme sacrifices to be together.

All of those things could also be said about other forbidden loves.

Let me make myself clear. I was not comparing gay -excuse me LGBT- couples to straight couples in general. In my post, I was comparing the guy/guy, girl/guy question that was posed on page 1 in relation to Brokeback Mountain. You can't stick a girl into Ennis or Jack's roles and have it be the same movie.

Jeez, I just want to know if you've seen the movie or not.

I have read the short story on which it was based. The movie follows the plot and the characters almost exactly.

Brokeback Mountain isn't showing in theaters near me either. And personally, I don't care because I don't care about seeing it. I don't want to see two cowboys...uh...riding each other.

a) you don't know how I was expressing that

and

b) are you sure you want to talk about being rude?

Yes, otherwise I wouldn't have done it.

Were you not being rude? I thought you were being sarcastic to me. I apologize if I misinterpreted your tone.

Not sarcasm so much as dry. Not intended to be rude.

Yea, I've found that to be a problem in other areas of the internet, such as AIM. I should put little /dry markers or something.

I normally really like dry, as long as I know it is dryness as opposed to rudeness. Matt is very dry and wry, and I find it very amusing.

Why would I be rude about Matt? I was rolling my eyes at james for even bothering conversing with you after having been bitten by you for his previous posts.

How is it possible for you to perceive imaginary slights (which you accuse others of slinging your way,) yet be completely unaware of the intentional verbal slaps you pass out that others actually call to your attention?

That's a marvelous question, but I'll limit myself to telling you that Matt is the person that I like everything about, so comparisons to him are a good thing.

Oh, sorry - I mistook the eyeroll to be directed at me.

Wow...I've been having so much fun reading between the lines here that I actually have no idea what this thread is about anymore!

I think I'll jump on the rude bandwagon: Kat & Kayla, I think you two need to take this off this forum. This is not the place.

The correct place is the swimming pool filled with Jello, and the correct dress code is "birthday suit."

Because, for now, it seems the biting has stopped and she apologized for mistaking my comment in a rude way. Despite the fact that I disagree with a lot of things she's said in this thread, I'm also one to drop it and continue on in a normal way. It takes a lot for me to stop conversing with someone.

My housemates have been trying to get someone to pudding wrestle since we lived in the dorms a few years ago. There was even a kiddie pool outside a room at one point.

I don't know where that got to...

Pudding is far, far weirder than Jello. (Note the decided lack of anything indicating this is an opinion, including [but not limited to] the phrases "I think," "IMO," and "IMHO.")

Jello it is.

I'm glad we've reached a concensus.

I've jello-wrestled before. I was fully dressed in black jeans and a black t-shirt so it wasn't very comfortable, though. It was also more of a slide than a wrestle. However, th essential ingredient of jello was present.

See, there's the thing: in any situation I can think of involving nude wrestling in a foodstuff, there isn't much choice involved. It's more of a "we're going to hold your parents/children/dignity hostage until you objectify yourselves for us" sort of thing.

If it makes you feel better. I don't really care, as long as my mission of perpetuating the Nude-Food-Wrestling Lifestyle (NFWL is the PC abbreviation) continues unhindered.

I'm really glad the food wrestling tangent started, because the first four pages just confused me.

"You cannot substitute cottage cheese for ricotta and still call it lasagna. It's entirely different."
"It's still a pasta dish, like many other pasta dishes."
"But ricotta is essential, lasagna is defined by ricotta. Nothing else would be the same."
"I don't see how it would be any different from pasta salad or even spaghetti."
"You're missing my point. It would no longer be lasagna."

This is horribly over-simplified and a trivialized comparison but it's how the first four pages of this thread read to me. People are arguing different things trying for different conclusions and then getting upset with each other for not recognizing it.

I found I had no problem agreeing with both KarlEd and katharina (except for the arguing about argung parts). And now I want to see the movie...

Chris,

No one ever said that lasagna isn't lasagna if it has cottage cheese. It just doesn't practice lasagna-ness.

Sorry wrong thread.

The only real question now is: can you wrestle in it?

Ricotta is kinda chalky, so I imagine lasagna wouldn't be nearly as good for NFW as pasta salad, which tends to be pretty oily.

I love lasagna with cottage cheese. Unfortunately, because my husband is a heathen and refuses to eat any soft, white cheeses, my lasagna has neither ricotta nor cottage cheese. [Cry]

Does this mean he refuses Brie? 'Cause THAT would be a tragedy.

That's not really TOO much of a tragedy, as it means there's more brie for me. It really only affects the meals I make for both of us, like lasagna.

Oh come on. A genuine Italian Lasagna does not contain either ricotta or cottage cheese, these are both American perversions of this fine Bolognese dish. A real Lasagna is made with Bechamel sauce.

Well, I'm not really trying to make a genuine Italian lasagna. I'm making lasagna the way my mom made it. Is it an Americanized dish? Sure! But I love it.

What's really good is when you use homemade ricotta. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
