I CONFESS that Kristy and I played hooky from reality today and went to see a matinee of the “Sex in the City Movie”. I thought the movie was great and even though I had not seen one episode when it was on HBO I did not feel like too much of an outcast. They did a great job of drawing you in even if you were a Sex in the City Virgin like I was.
I am a fan of the previews of up and coming movies but I must admit that I almost jumped out of my seat when the preview of MAMA MIA THE MOVIE and the Music of ABBA came spewing from the big screen. I instinctively started belting out the tunes. ***Sorry Jody and Kristy to expose you to my obvious voice of an Angel *** I had no idea that it was even in the works – Thank you Universal Pictures for making my year. I will let you in on a little secret I am a HUGE Mama Mia fan – I love the music the energy and am a sucker for a happily ever after. The play really is a blast as the entire audience really is on their feet singing (some very badly like myself) at the top of their lungs!! Linda experienced this first hand as she shared in an earlier post. I loved hearing every bad note around me I pretty much love all musicals plays and movies but I especially love when my favorite plays become movies as is the case with this one. What a great cast as well Sexy Men Pierce Brosnan and Colin Firth and Movie icon Meryl Streep as well as some great newcomers.
I feel a girls night out or girls hooky day in our future or at least a few in mine. My biggest challenge in all this is how am I going to sneak some great wine into the movie as that will really turn an ordinary day / night out into an EVENT
HMMMMM is it the Grey Wolf Wine -The Silkwood Red Duet- The Volatus – The Bangin Red or would actually I think a bottle of each would resolve this dilemma very easily….
Mama Mia here I go again My My….. (Oh sorry I was practicing my singing…..)
Dancing Queens that will be most definitely be us after all those bottles!!
