Mamma Mia! I just can not stop singing old ABBA songs.
Saw the movie on Friday night. Yes, that explains everything. All on my own - loved it.
We had the nanny to babysit for Friday night but H had a crises at work and had to work late. So I made a quick decision to just go and see if I can get a single ticket for Mamma Mia and go and see it on my own - no time to try and find a friend. The movie started in South Africa on Thursday so the theatres were very full. But I got the last empty seat in the house - 4 rows from the front, and had a blast! I really can not remember when last I've enjoyed a movie this much. I am after all a 70s and 80s child.
What added to the fun was doing it on my own, at 8 in the evening on a Friday night - date night! I bought the chocolates I like, not what H generally buys and we both sort of like, I bought the cooldrink I like most and not our compromise drink that we both sort -of like (we share) and sprinkled the seasoning I like on my popcorn (plain salt). I had my very own kiddies combo.I laughed as loud as I liked, didn't care a hoot who thought what of me. FUN in capital letters!
After the movie I met up with the dear hubby who took me out for a quick dinner and I irritated him to bits as I just could not stop talking about the movie, humming or whistling ABBA songs. In short, I have to take him to see it as well and I definitely have to own the DVD once it is released. And if you haven't seen it, girl, it's the best fun on the big screen since "My big fat Greek wedding".
