I had a wonderfully long phone conversation with Jamie last night, during which we watched I Love The New Millennium together in different time zones (don’t get me started on how Too Soon it is to be rehashing the first iPods and Super Size Me – I still have underwear I bought in 2003. And yet I watch.) Anyhow, there was a commercial break, and at the start of the first spot, I gasped in delight.
Jamie: “It’s Mamma Mia there, isn’t it?”
Me: “OMG YES!!!”
Jamie: “I knew you’d want to see it.”
Me: (Oblivious, singing and dancing around my bedroom in said underwear from 2003)
Can’t wait for this.
With the lovely Meryl Streep! And Colin Firth! And Amanda Seyfried! (I have a hetero girl crush on her – she is so amazing in Big Love. I didn’t know that she was in it until I started seeing the commercials, and that only multiplies my excitement.)
And yes, I fully realize how much potential for suck this has.
BUT COME ON. It’s ABBA. You can’t go wrong with ABBA! Because they’re awesome! And a palindrome! Which is pleasing to my OCD nature!
If this doesn't make you want to dance around in lamé and platform shoes, you are dead inside, my friend.
