A summer memory...

It wouldn't be a summer unless my sister and I had either drove each other crazy, called each other horrible names and made up in just a few short minutes or watched musicals non-stop till we knew all the words, songs and moves.

I never understood why I wasn't in drama. Oh yeah, I had no singing voice, couldn't dance to a beat and that whole shy thing would have gotten in the way. But, really, our summer's were not complete without musicals. Every day we watched Hairspray, Grease and Calamity Jane, just to name a few....

Oh, not to mention Bing Crosby's White Christmas in the dead of July. Good times man, good times. What else were to pre-teens who were bound and chained to the house to do when their mother was a work?

So speaking of Hairspray, I am secretly wanting to go see it, but only with one person who could possibly understand why, my sister.

Shh...I would never want to totally admit to that now, how much I loved hairspray, but the new one may be really good. Maybe? Or I just have sentimental value associated with it. Christopher Walken looks like he, once again is great on film. John Travolta? John, John! I was a huge fan till you walked off into the middle of wacko street. Really. But I'm willing to give you another try....

So, there you have it, I'm secretly a nerd and love musicals.
