Pink, Movie and A Review
The colour pink. Pink means many things. "Shades of deep pink, such as magenta, are effective in neutralizing disorder and violence." (taken from linked site) Is this the reason why Pepto-Bismal is that nasty pink colour? So let me get this straight. It is not the medication in it. It is the colour that neutralizes the disorder and violence of our intestinal tract? Good to know. I guess I'm also one step ahead as my cell phone and my laptop are both pink and I am just tickled and relaxed to the point of actually falling asleep. Let's not forget my Sansa. That little mp3 player is pink and I cannot bare to run with out it.
Okay, so why am I talking about pink? Because I am forced to admit that I am a bit of a girlie girl. This is a side of myself that I have been fighting against since I was a wee one. I don't know why, but if it's trendy I can't stand it. Maybe because secretly I want to be in the midst of the trend, but know it goes against everything I stand for. Not quite sure what that is yet, but I'm standing for it anyways.
I like the colour pink because it is bright and is what I imagine happy would look like if happy was a colour. Pink makes me feel younger, softer, less jaded. It takes me to a place of trees and fields of mustard seeds that go on for miles. The wind passing through, making waves that you want to run through and escape all the bad in everything. Watching musicals brings me the same feeling. I love music. I wanted to be a singer when I grew up. Then I grew up. However, certain songs and musicals like Chitty Chitty Bang Bang bring back the memories of singing for hours in my basement in front of my imaginary audience. (I have terrible stage fright. I shake so much I look like I'm having a seizure). I love purses and secretly have a passion for shoes. I'm also practical, which is why my shoe passion is a secret and I don't indulge. Yesterday I spent $36.80 CDN on a movie because of the pink factor. Bad me. I am surprisingly not ashamed and I don't feel guilty. I know I should.
The Moviereview by Cindy at The Mom Maven. It was a pretty decent review. Later that night we went to the store and while I was waiting for Hubby to check out some electronics I checked out the movie aisle. That is when I saw it. Angels sang. I swear really they did. The price had me choked. But it had a pink clutch purse I reasoned. I sheepishly asked hubby if it was cool if I purchased the movie for the clutch purse. (I don't need his permission persay, but communicating on finances/purchases and remaining on the same page is important in our marriage)
(reason for paying so much for a movie)
After watching the movie three times (thank you my toddlers), I have to say that I agree withThe Mom Maven and her review. I must add that the one thing I noticed with this movie is it had a plot line all the way through. I have noticed the last few movies from Disney (HSM 2, Camp Rock) just threw in well known players and had little else. I felt like they took the time with Sharpay's character and the supporting cast to make it a really good storyline right until the end. Very enjoyable and I like Sharpay and Ashley Tisdale even more than I did before. Also, as a Canadian I LOVED seeing Pat Mastroianni (Joey Jeremiah on Degrassi) make an appearance. Handsome as ever. Does the guy age? I say get this movie, keep the clutch for your adult self and DON'T feel ashamed that you did so. I'm not!
