Various things:

1. I saw The King's Speech yesterday afternoon, and it was truly beautiful. Colin Firth deserves an Oscar for his performance as King George VI, and the film contains what has to be the single best use of Mozart's Seventh Symphony ever in its climax - melancholy and defiant at once in music, plot, and images. The film is about a personal struggle and triumph, but it takes place against the backdrop of the darkest period in our recent history - not exactly the most upbeat of films, all told (hooray, he's overcome his stammer and made a rousing speech...crap, that speech is the first of all the ones he'll make throughout WWII), but you come away from it with at least a bit of hope. It's a movie about the end of an era, but it doesn't leave you feeling bereft.

2. I've made a post on [livejournal.com profile] asex_adjusted about sex positivity, asexuality, and gender identification. It's far too long and probably incoherent.

3. IT SNOWED LAST NIGHT. The ice was covered with a thin layer of actual snow when I got up this morning, though it had all melted completely away wherever there was sunlight. My door is permanently in shadow, though, so there's snow on the walkway in front of my apartment. I took pictures.

Horray! I am really hoping Colin Firth gets that Oscar. I haven't seen the movie yet but I really have no doubt that he did a wonderful job in it. (I'm not even really a fan of his at all but there was just something about the trailers...)

Also, I really want to say that although I came across many gays/lesbians and a few in transition in life, you are the only person I have met thus far that is asexual. I actually had never heard about it until you brought it up. What I guess I'm trying to say is, thank you for making me aware. I wish there was more about it in the media (in a positive light, of course) because I don't think everyone knows about it and it is something I would love to discuss more with people in real life.
Anyway, I know that's kind of random and I know I'm usually pretty quiet but I just wanted to say that. :)
