kate5kiwis: Voulez-vous (would yas like to...)


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

Voulez-vous (would yas like to...)

i know i've pretty much done mamma mia to a near-excruciating death this year - mamma mia, here i go again - i've seen it four times at the cinema - my, my, how can i resist ya? cos Woozie even bought the soundtrack and we've been singing - honey honey, how you thrill me, ah-hah, honey honey - and singing it - you can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life - but this month's dvd release certainly called for a Girls' Weekend on our very own Greek Island!!!

here we are at Pukehina Beach -
People everywhere,
a sense of expectation hanging in the air
Giving out a spark,
across the room your eyes
are glowing in the dark

And here we go again,
we know the start,

we know the end -
Masters of the scene
We've done it all before
and now we're back to get some more
You know what I mean
Voulez-vous (ah-ha)
Take it now or leave it (ah-ha)
Now it's all we get (ah-ha)
Nothing promised, no regrets

Voulez-vous (ah-ha)

and then Margot produced her wig stash -
Tonight the Super Trouper
lights are gonna find me
Shining like the sun,
having fun,
Feeling like a number one!!!

OH YES, "we danced on the beach, and we kissed on the beach, and DOT - DOT - DOT!!!!"
(guess the movie line - absolutely no clues needed for this one - oh and just jokes about the kissing lol)

Yeah we kissed on the beach and dot dot dot, ummm, I dont think anyone dot dot dotted on the beach did they? Ok, so there wasnt any kissing either, just some boob and hip bumping! Oh, actually, that sounds bad too.....

Can you believe (and I am soooo ashamed to admit this in present company) that I only saw the movie for the first time this weekend? I always knew I would love it but I really wanted to watch it with my hippy chick of a seventies little sister. We went away for the weekend and we watched it and we screamed and sang until Jono came home and said "You lot are soooo embarrassing... I can hear you down the street!" Even my square of a BIL who I love dearly was joinging in...

i'm glad you did a post on Mamma Mia again for I still haven't got round to seeing this and I keep meaning to!

And hey, just saw your peach crumble recipe, have you thought of adding custard in the peach mixture for another variation? It is so yum - if you like custard that is :)

That looked like such a blast!!! The feather boas and the wigs were just over the top! I wish I could have joined in the fun! I will have to keep that in mind for future meet ups with bloggers! The movie was funny too. I enjoyed it even though I didn't the stars' singing was very good. LOL. It was still a fun, feel-good movie and I enjoyed bringing my mom to it. :)

oh well i searched and searched BOTH Big Red Sheds and - egads! no hippie hippie joy joy!
i did find a(nother) black singlet top though lol X

you either luff it or hate it.
i luff it - lol X

so the custard doesn't go all runny when it's cooking? or do i need to make a Real Egg Custard instead of Mr Edmonds' Boxed Stuff? X

yeah the singing was crazee. i love amanda seyfried's voice though - at least it doesn't sound too bad when we all sing along with the others lol X
