Some More Questions

Why Gone with the Wind?
I love the Civil War time period, and romance, so this was right up my alley 🙂
I watched it on TV first, and I then checked out the book, and I’ve been hooked since. I was about 13 or so at the time.

Why Mamma Mia?
Sex and the City was no longer showing 😉
That’s actually the reason we saw it. As for getting so hooked? I guess I’m a closet ABBA fan, 😆

Why plurk?
Because I’ve made some really great friends there.

Why blog?
Because it’s a great outlet for getting out frustrations.

Why reread a book?
cheap and easy entertainment. Plus, you catch stuff you missed on the first read 🙂

Why did you stop writing?
I got sick. After that, the desire to finish just kind of died with it, I guess.

Why an iud?
Last for five years, and low hormones, so it helps balance those out without killing everything. Each month was killer on me, and not in a good way, courtesy of anemia. The IUD killed the period.

Why water shots?
I blame Lotus, and her tutorials on taking good shots of falling water 🙂

Mamma Mia, My Oh My

I Finally Got Away

Friday, my friend, Julie, and I saw Mamma Mia! May I say that I, who’s not a huge fan of musicals, absolutely adored the movie. Julie wasn’t too sure that she’d wanted to see it, but saw it because I wanted to, and because Sex and the City wasn’t available. She paid for the tickets ($14) and I paid for the popcorn and sodas ($15.52). Worth every single penny paid, I think. Definitely one where I’ll be purchasing the DVD when it comes out, and the soundtrack as well. As I told Julie, I want it in my car, on my laptop, and on my phone.

Rave Reviews

I absolutely loved the screen adaptation of Mamma Mia! The look of it was gorgeous, never has a Greek island looked so beautiful! I loved Meryl Streep as Donna, she cam across as an honest and good-hearted character. I loved Amanda ans Sophie and my only big casting problem was Pierce Brosnan, you may want to cover your ears when he sings, he’s horrible. Some of the songs seemed a bit forced in the storyline, but some of them felt at home. I saw an advanced screening and the sound wasn’t very good but that could have been because of the spot where we were sitting. The movie was ultimate feel good! I loved it! It was very bright and bouncy the whole time. I didn’t feel that there was one slow moment in the movie! I think my favorite moment in the movie was definitely Dancing Queen. It was spectacular.

I’d have to say that I agree 100% with this review, and all of the spectacular ones. There might be some not so nice ones, but I haven’t paid any attention.
