thanks everyone for playing.

and about that beat...

i just got back from seeing hairspray with my daughter, dani. it was a fun movie and i really enjoyed it, as did dani. it's one of those upbeat musicals that had my toes a tapping all the way through it.

after we left the theater, i made a pit stop at walmart to pick up a couple of things. the store is right next to the theater and as i parked and then walked into the store, i was still humming the finale song from the movie, 'you can't stop the beat.' as i watched people walking into the store, i had this weird image of people breaking out in song and dance, as if that's a normal occurrence. i even chuckled to myself.

i entered the store and guess what!? the song they were playing over the store's sound system was the very same song - 'you can't stop the beat.' it was so surreal. i had this feeling that i was supposed to start dancing and that the lady picking out a card or the guy looking over the jewelry, was going to join me.

i'm telling you, i was laughing out loud the whole time it took me to walk back to the camera department.

I won!!! yea. ha ha. I'm glad you liked the caption. It just came to me.

OK, I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED hairspray. Did I tell you I LOVED it? I did! Thought it was a fantastic movie. It really made me dance in my seat and like you said, I left there and felt the same way as you did. If we had been together going over to Walmart, I probably WOULD HAVE started dancing cause I'm just really embarassing like that. ha ha

Anyway, glad you liked it. I think I'm gonna buy the soundtrack.

Oh I can't wait to see it. I just love muscials, and especially ones that make you want to go out and dance! I have to go see it SOON!

I loved that movie too. I love any movie that makes me want to dance and sing. I loved watching John Travolta. He did a really good job.
