I have spent this morning catching up on my blog reading after a busy weekend of fun. Friday night a group of us ladies went to Moore, OK to the Warren Theaters to watch Mama Mia. Several of my friends were there as well as Jesse and several of her friends. It was quite a hen party. As for the movie, it was just fun. Mama Mia is a bit silly, but the visual aspect of the movie is bright and wonderful. The movie was filmed in Greece – everything about the movie was just COLOR! The music was fun too, but a bit odd (like the whole movie). Hearing and seeing Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan sing is, well, unexpected. Streeps two sidekicks are equally surprising. If you follow the link to the movie, you can watch some videos of the singing and dancing, and understand what I am saying. During the bachelor-ette party scene, Streep and her two friends sing oldies to the younger girls wearing 70’s costumes – it was great fun – ridiculous, but fun. When the movie was over, I leaned across Ashley’s mom to tell Lindz’ mom, "Hey, I have a great idea for Lindz’ wedding." Both moms burst out laughing. Lindz’ Aunt B, said, "I think we can do it!" and we all fell to fits of giggling.
After the movie, we went to Buffalo Wild Wings. I was sitting at the "older married ladies" table where there were some strange topics of conversation. One lady told how she had gotten an email with a picture of a "redneck halter top" which was a top made from men’s underwear. The redneck had taken a pair of tightie-whities, cut the crotch out, and worn the underwear as a halter-top. All the ladies were duly horrified and exclaiming how crazy that was. When it got quiet, I said, "Come on ladies, admit it. You know you want to go home and get out a pair of your husband’s shorts and try it. You don’t have to wear it in public – around the house is okay." Those ladies, those friends of mine who know me so well, got a real kick out of that.
Another funny thing happened at Buffalo Wild Wings. There were lots of other young people in the restaurant besides our young ladies. As we got up to leave, I noticed two young men sitting at a table near Jesse and her friends. The guys were sitting as close as possible to the girls without being at the same table. Obviously, they wanted to be sitting with the girls. And who wouldn’t? Most of you have seen Jesse, Lindz, and Reagan on my blog or Jesse’s blog. All three are beautiful. The fourth girl at the table might be considered even more beautiful that the other three – very classy looks. Those guys were just drooling. When I asked Jesse if the boys had even spoken to them, she said no. They just sat very close, but never instigated conversation. My thoughts: No guts; No glory.
The rest of the weekend:
Saturday, we did some bicycle shopping in Lawton with a side trip to Hobby Lobby. The owner of the bike store gave me some advice on bike riding. He said that the seat will always hurt your butt, and as too the pain in my wrists and shoulders, well, that is part of riding also. Great!
Sunday after church, we went to the lake to do some swimming, sailing, and kayaking. Maybe Jesse will post pics on her blog. We cooked out with friends. The weather was overcast and it rained on us, but that was very nice. It cleared off later in the afternoon and was just beautiful. I got to visit with Elza and her boys getting to know them. Hello to Elza! I really enjoyed you and your family.
