Grease is the Word...

Sorry, it's been awhile...nice to be back! Well, school has started, tennis has begun (yay!), and I have seen what is probably one of the most popular movies of all time. Grease. And I have to admit, I was slightly disappointed. Slightly. Don't get me wrong, it was cute. Is it on my list of favorites? Nope. In my opinion, the best parts were the songs, which shouldn't really be a surprise to anyone. :) They're so catchy! As I listened, I found myself thinking, "Wow, I didn't know this is from Grease!" As for everything else, it was just okay. Alright, scratch that. I LOVED Olivia Newton John's clothes. So simple and cute. I wish that it would be considered normal to wear clothes like that now. *sigh* But, anyway, the whole thing really didn't have a storyline. All I saw was how life was for a "normal" teenager in the fifties. I don't even think it was close to accurate, except for the greased hair itself. I really don't know. This movie made me want to research a little bit more about the actual fifties, not the fifties in the movies. Altogether, it was not what I had expected it to be. My life does not feel more complete after having (finally?) watching the infamous Grease.

Thanks, I have been told I should watch it but had no desire to really, you have finalized my decision. Tennis is great fun.

P.S. August's rhapsody is great.

Well, I hope you won't regret it! And yes, I love tennis, though I'm by no means a superstar, and August's Rhapsody is my very favorite instrumental song.
