I'm checking in to say that, oh! How I long to see Mamma Mia! I long to see it in the theater (coming in October to Atlanta) and on the big screen, too.
Because you need to know the following about me:
- I love musicals**--it's something I was born into (or, if you will, indoctrinated into). Musicals are things over which my mom and I actually bond.
- I love ABBA. I just. freaking. do. Hooray for Benny & Bjorn! (I hope he can forgive me for not being able to figure out the umlaut on my keyboard.)
- I'll pretty much see anything with Colin Firth in it.
Ergo, the need to see this movie!
It's going to be difficult to wait for DVD though, but I must, since I'm not envisioning paying lots of money to go see either show in order to sit outside of it while it's playing because I have to nurse a baby. (I can nurse him for free at home.) If this one turns out to take a bottle [insert crossed fingers here], then I'll try to go in October to see it at the theater.
So I'll content myself in the meantime with listening to lots of ABBA and maybe teaching the kids some of the songs, too. That sounds like a nice project, doesn't it?
If you see it--and you know you want to--let me know what you think.
**I understand that the genre of "musical" is not widely enjoyed, and if you are of that
