Last night I went with my friend Sally (pictured here with her son Ross, who lives opposite and who is friends with Jack - looks like they're having a great time in this, typical teenage boys lol), her friend Dale, Eleanor and other friend of Sally's to see 'Mama Mia'. When I went round to Sally's Jack was ensconced in Ross' room, where they spend most of their time, and the unmistakable sounds of light jazz drifted down the stairway. I was quite impressed by this, that they were listening to jazz, but Sally said it was just the soundtrack to a new game Ross had bought LOL
Dale is an intensive care nurse. She actually bikes to work early in the morning and does a twelve hour shift. She was telling some funny stories about junior doctors and how they generally just stand there helplessly while the nurses take over.
'Mama Mia' was a musical based on the songs of Abba. I've always liked Abba, and have 'Abba Gold' (I am not afraid to admit this). I can see this film becoming a classic as there were lots of women coming back for the second time to see it and some were singing and dancing in the isles, rather in the manner of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, though obviously this film is a whole lot more wholesome lol.
Sally told me an interesting tidbit that Julie Walters is not a natural singer and dancer so had to get drunk for some of the scenes. I spent a lot of my viewing time looking out for this, and it's true she looks tiddly on occasion
A nice evening.
