The advance of the retreat

We stayed in and sewed today, so no real stories to tell. These are some of the most prolific ladies we've had at a retreat, so they're all pretty much done with the four blocks included in the retreat project, and are planning on doing all the remaining blocks as well - some while they're still here and others after they get home.

Tonight, we're all going to sit around and watch Mamma Mia!, which I've never seen.

Update, two hours later:

Could that have been farther from what I was expecting?

No, it could not.

Don't get me wrong, it was very good. But, see, all I knew about it was the name. Italian name. Let's see...Italian shows. There's The Godfather. There's Sopranos...


Meryl Streep singing more than one ABBA duet with Pierce Brosnan on a Greek island in a manically-paced musical with more 70s costumes than one generally expects to find in tiny Greek towns, I was not prepared for.

To say nothing of watching a mother-daughter story where the mother is Meryl Streep and the daughter is a young adult, and identifying with Streep's character rather than the daughter.

Good times.

Haha...I just watched that movie last night and it ruined Pierce Brosnan forever for me. I will never be able to think of him as a hunk again after seeing him sing in that get-up at the end of the movie. I think my husband is still mad, we had the choice between that or the latest Indiana Jones and I made him watch Mamma Mia...he did fall asleep, so it's not like he suffered that much.
