How Much Would You Pay?

My daughter and I were doing laundry, and bored, so we perused the selection on On Demand. I felt like some mindless fun, so we rented Mamma Mia. Cute movie; not a classic. Meryl Streep is a freaking mutant. She looks fabulous and I was surprised at how well she could sing. Hearing Pierce Brosnan try to sing was painful, but he's still so pretty to look at, who cares? That's what the mute button is for, right?

Beth said after the Dancing Queen number, "I'm so jealous of your time. Your music was just so fun."

I reminded her that we had our envelope-pushers, too, but she replied that at least the majority of 70's-80's acts weren't shoving their crotches in your face. I have to agree.

And just in case you ever wonder: dancing around the living room with your kid to songs from your teenhood is absolutely priceless. So crank this up and have fun!

have you ever seen Muriel's Wedding? Lots of Abba in that one as well--if I ever get married again I think I'd have their "I do I do I do I do I do" song as my walk-down-the-aisle theme.

Oh, that is priceless, Robyn! I loathed most of the music of the 70's and 80's, but I loved ABBA and hope me and my girls will dance around the living room to it together one day.

I saw the ads for that one, Beth- they dress up and do "Waterloo" don't they?

It's too much fun, Kimber!
