Today’s edition of My Life as a Movie is bringing some much needed colour to a grey and rainy Monday. Technically, I suppose it’s a little late in the day for a wake-up call, but I’m excited about it nonetheless. I missed you this morning!
How was your weekend? Mine was restful and relaxing, as you can see here. In fact, it was just what I needed after a corybantic week. Not because I needed a break from all of your wit and charm, mind you, but because I needed to recharge and replenish my own supply of one-liners – you know I’m going to do my best to keep the fun going this week! With that in mind, let’s get to today’s film selection, shall we?
Last week, I:
- Was all abubble with the pleasure of your company, and;
- Expressed my oh-so-smitten feelings for a certain someone through song, and;
- Stayed true to my own unique style … even if it’s not exactly standard around here.
So, last week, my life as a movie was “Hairspray”
Ok, fine, so I wasn’t exactly supporting the civil rights movement and putting a stop to segregation with my stellar dance moves last week … but you guys know that Tracy Turnblad is my soul sister, right?
Obviously. We’re both eternal optimists who fall in love with the boys we see on our tv screens on a regular basis. Plus, neither of us care much what the cool kids are up to, and we’ve both been known to sing in public while out doing our daily errands. Enthusiastically.
Theatre geek that I am, it should come as no surprise that I love both the stage production and 2007 movie adaptation of “Hairspray”. Do you have a favourite musical that’s been made into a movie? “The Sound of Music”? “Grease”? “Chicago”? Let me know in the Comments!
