      Woww! Grrreat documentary! The poly really seems real and natural. I kinda got the feeling like I was gettin to know everyone, almost like they were my becoming my own family and friends, too --and the monos were the weird & lost ones! And those teenage kids growing up with their 3+ parents, that was special, esp when Lisa asks one daughter "As a 16yr old, have you ever had those fantasies of meeting that dream guy and marrying him and living happily ever after?" the daughter replies "LOL! No, no! -- You know I could see myself living in a home with 2 partners -- I honestly don't think one perfect person exists. .. My mom knows everything, really close, she doesn't think she needs to keep things from her partners OR her kids. Her polyamory lifestyle brought in a new father figure for me which was really important in my life. .. We just have this big family!" --ultra Kool!

    My (DestinyArchitect http://meetup.com/OC-Polyamory/...­ ) attendance & review of this event.
    *Last week
    **after 1st hearing of this from our member JH http://meetup.com/OC-Polyamory/...­ , for this & more,
    **I wrote up a Wikpedia-like article for the documentary http://1.jothere.com/4036#MJ917...­ -check it out!
    *And at about midnight-5am today, I created this event listing for us & RSVPed YES!
    *But because I was working writing up those full online event instructions http://meetup.com/OC-Polyamory/...­ for everyone and getting a few DVRs recording it to make sure we'd get a good copy, I only caught fragments of it, but
    **I'm starting to full watch it for the 1st time now! And will report back here soon.

    Just at "Tue2108"(9:09pm), I finished an UPDATED EVENT DESCRIPTION -above & worth reading
    *as it now includes "MJKW9Q: What to do, in order:" with complete instructions including on how to do the online discussion here.
    **and I see it looks like Kat has already read it as I see she's already posted a Q http://meetup.com/OC-Polyamory/...­ -way to go, Kat!
