The hills are alive

with the sound of music... there! is it stuck in your head now? LOL The Sound of Music was the first movie I saw on the big screen. I was about 8 years old, I think, and I was to go with my Brownie troop. My mother tried to get me all excited about it, but I just wasn't. Once I got there, I enjoyed the show and was enthralled with all the singing people. LOL But to this day, I do not enjoy watching movies, and particularly if they are at the movie theater. I avoid going at all costs because 1.) People are rude and I don't need them to throw their food or germs my way and 2.) there is almost no movie in recent history that is worth paying the exhorbitant cost of going to the show. I have patience and can wait the few months til it comes out on DVD to watch it in the comfort of my own home on my own time schedule. I'll pause it if I want to and if it was really good? I'll watch it AGAIN for the same price.


  1. Gosh, I remember watching that as well, but not going to tell you how old I was.

  2. The first movie I ever saw in the theatre was "Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" when I was 5. I LOVED it.

    To this day I find TSOM too long and boring - I like the music, but I don't think that to this day I've ever watched it all the way through in one sitting. Sad huh?

  3. Great writing!!! Mine was another Julie Andrews movie - Mary Poppins. :) I think I'd better go write my post since I keep forgetting! ;)
