...by saying that even though MTV is going to be mentioned AGAIN in my blog, it is NOT that huge of a factor in my life (as you all shake your heads and make that clicking sound with your tongue and think “poor pop culture seduced girl”).
millie noticed as she scrolled through the dvr guide on the tv saturday night, that MTV (which she is NOT allowed to watch, only i am allowed to watch that smut) was showing Legally Blonde, the musical LIVE from Broadway. now she and i are HUGE legally blonde, the regular movie fans and even HUGER anything on BROADWAY fans...
so she asked if she could watch it and it being on MTV, i needed to watch it with her to protect her innocence. and it being a FULL BROADWAY musical filmed on BROADWAY, i needed to watch it to feed my soul.
let me say here that i wanted to have little wrapped in a blanket babies, i wanted to have sweet little pudgy puddin’ sticky fingered toddlers, i wanted to have learning to read and write elementary school children. but never did i EVER EVER EVER for a minute think that one day i would have teenagers in my house (i wasn’t good at thinking about the future, i just wanted those little babies who wore those little outfits with pictures of giraffes on them). but i have to say that having a teenage girl who is TOTALLY NUTSO ABOUT EVERYTHING ON BROADWAY is a heck of a lot of fun!
we laughed so hard at this musical and have been singing and dancing and bending and snapping ever since. but thank goodness we recorded it and started it late because even fast forwarding through the MTV commercials was too much skin and scandal for my taste- and we all know that i have bad taste already).
they may be showing it again (this wasn’t the first time they had shown it) and if you LOVE musicals and legally blonde and catchy lyrics such as these lyrics that open the show as the sorority sisters serenade elle on the eve that should be her proposal...
He's the luckiest guy
I'm, like, gonna cry
I got tears coming out of my nose
He's the campus catch
You're a perfect match
Cause you both have such great taste in clothes
Of course he will propose
or this little heart warming scene after warner breaks up with elle because she isn’t serious enough...
(Spoken) Wait a sec! This is the kind of girl Warner wants!
Someone who wears black when nobody's dead!
Girls, I have a completely brilliant plan!...
(sung) I'll meet you there at Harvard with a book in my hand
Big sturdy book, big wordy book
Full of words I'll understand
And right there is where you'll see it too
Warner, what you want is right in front of you!
or this witty song and dance number to win back her man...
Hey, hey, hey!
Keep it positive
That he loves you and not her
And I bet ya smarter!
She don't know the real him
You feel him
So don't her her steal him
Wake him up like sleepin beauty
Turn his head with your red hot booty
You bring the noise if you bring the funk
It's positively time to shake your junk
shake, shake, shake, shake,
shake, shake, shake, shake,
Girls, how is this helping? He's not even here!
He left while we were shaking "junk"! Wait!
Girls I'm positive
That we've taken this too far
No I'm positive
This is Harvard not a stripper bar
All this trashy carryin' on
Thats the reason that he's gone...
see what good lessons i provide for my daughter.... is that mother of the year award in the bag or WHAT?
