Synopsis

Dear Francis puts a face to the AIDS pandemic as it chronicles the personal stories of two strangers and the Swazis they befriend. After the UN officially declared the small African kingdom of Swaziland to be the world's most HIV-infected nation, Lance and Kelly, two Texas college students with high ideals, great hopes, and a bit of naiveté, embark on a most unconventional AIDS prevention program. Developing relationships with their students, they discover that the causes of this plague are much more disturbing and complex than they could have ever imagined. Through this unique story and interviews with Swaziland's leading experts, the film highlights the hope of a nation's future against seemingly insurmountable odds... one life at a time.

amish/mennonite visit

what do you do when you visit an amish/mennonite family and you tell them what you do... especially if it has to do with film (something they don't know much about or don't even agree with)? and before the conversation starts they let you know they were busy shelling peapods out back? ...how awkward of a situation is that.

well that happened to me friday in tennessee after shopping at an amish store and then randomly stopping by some of my grandma's friends.

yeah, so i was in tennesse for thanksgiving visiting my gma and folks. it really was a good time... and my mom makes the best pumpkin pie ever.

i hope you all had a happy thanksgiving!

ear problems

so my right ear is clogged. i've tried everything... putting perxoide/warm h20 into it, a cup with a hot towel inside over the ear, jumping on one leg while tilting my head, buying a ear drops kit, yawning, laying my head on it's side for 15mins, buying gum-chewing relentlessly.... nothing is working.

anyone?

i hope i don't have an ear infection... what the freak? it doesn't hurt or anything, just can't really hear out of it.
