my my, how can i resist you?

the last time i willingly paid to watch a movie three times was for 'a walk to remember' – definitely not a favorite, curriculum vitae-worthy achievement but one that 'i'll always remembaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh'. ehem. sorry. cough cough. sorry mandy.

today, i watched 'mamma mia!' for the third time with my parents and older sister (who, by the way, watched it with me the first time). surprisingly enough, i enjoyed it as much as i enjoyed the first two viewings. unsurprisingly, i cried at the exact same times during all three.

but seriously – could there be a happier movie? i doubt it. i should know. i saw the 'care bears' movie (the gross little sister forced us to) and it didn't make me feel half as good as this one did.

i'll say it again: all three times were such good experiences for me that i was willing to forgive the nasal vocal prowess of the beautifully aging pierce brosnan. of course the 'beautifully aging' factor had a lot to do with forgiveness.

yet another non-surprise, the mamma of mia (real name of gross little sister) had to end the night with another one of her classic showstoppers:

"ang galing ni meryl streep! parang sya talaga ang kumakanta!!!"

("meryl streep was great! it was like she was actually the one singing!!!")

hmmm.

to this, one can only say ...

...

...

YOU CAN DANCE!!!

YOU CAN JAH-HIIIVE!!!

(i apologize to my friends and family who i have bombarded with endless singing on chat and in real life. when we find something that makes us happy, we have to hang on to it and milk it for all it's worth ... until all people who, at some point, loved or respected you start to disappear without explanation and would rather feign their own murder than be seen with you. *tears*)

CHIQUITITA, TELL ME WHAT'S WROOOOOOOOOONG ...

(ok i'll stop. now. see if i blog again. ever.)

You're right! It's hard to resist the movie. I just watched it with my family yesterday. My feet were on serious 'tapping mode.' (Gosh, I feel like a lola. TAPPING. Really.)

I am also compelled to blog about it. Pero next time na. Hehehe.

And, yes, my LSS right after the movie was Chiquitita.
