Girls Write Out
Saturday, August 18, 2007

A show of hands, how many of you are happy that "High School Musical 2" is over! Oh my gosh, the hype -- my daughter screaming Zac Efron's name. I tried to watch a little of it with the kids and their friends, but really, it's like a dog hearing something I can't. I don't really get it. I am, after all, over twenty.

If you're over twenty and even if you're not, I got my copies of the Trophy Wives Club and I'd like to give five away so if you're interested, email me at and I'll mail them to the first five addresses I get. And don't worry about me with your addresses, I will be lucky enough to get them to the post office, I am not organized enough to make a mailing list. : ) Happy Saturday!! Soccer season is starting. : ) Kristin

My husband is watching the ending of the movie right now. My kids went to a friends house to watch (after updates all day long from my 10 year old daughter as to how much time was left until it started!)

I suppose I'll be watching it over and over for the next three months.

I had to go out today so my nine year old got a rare day out with Grandpa - and was so excited because he has tv and she wouldgettoseethepremiereofhighschoolmusical2!!!
I had no idea either - but then we don't have TV so I inadvertently scheduled the most amazing day for daughter by sending her to my parents. Tomorrow I know I will get a play by play complete with sons and dancing though so it will be like I watched it too.

But I still remember being 10 years old and watching Grease and I was Olivia Newton John singing to my hairbrush for years after that...

Haven't seen HSM 1 yet. But I did tivo it this week so I could see what the deal was...

I admit I'm a little weirded out that my 8 year old son is so into the movie. It just seems dorky to me. But then, I'm over thirty and a lot of Disney stuff seems dorky to me. LOL.

So, I was stuck in a hotel by myself two nights ago. The sad truth is I made, burnt, and ate the burnt popcorn while sitting on a hotel room bed watching HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL. It's definitely dorky but for a flick, remarkably positive. I was they weren't encouraging all my little 6th-8th grade girls in my middle school to start DATING (even though an obvious crush was expressed in the movie). that's my hang up and pet peeve - little 11 yr olds moaning about broken "relationships". Whatever happened to playing with Barbies at 11??


PS - a part of me wants to see HSM 2 just for the heck of it. I'm just over 30 ... is that odd???

My cousin Mollie is ten and obsessed with High School Musical. I have seen the first one and the thing that bothered me the most was the singing. Is it fake or what?

Will that be this generation's Grease? My daughter watches Grease with me, she loves Danny. That movie had a lot of sex jokes. I didn't get them when I watched it as a kid. LOL

I gave away the books, thanks people! Kristin

Sans children in my house, I am just now catching up on the phenom.

I agree with Kristin, though. Seems like we have a new Grease on our hands. Only, it captured more teens as I recall than preteens.

My eleven year old son is also gushing over those movies. I think you all were right about it being "Grease" for this generation...but not having time for TV, I've not seen anything on it. Christian Evangelist Steve Russo did a whole book on it (I think it was on the Bethany House website where I saw that) showing some good, positive applications that can be made for the kiddos from the movies.
Can't wait for your new book to hit Barnes & Noble (I have all the rest)!

Elementary Girl went to a HSM2 party, just-recently-turned-Teen Girl went to one, and Teen Son had a bunch of friends over here. But when I went to check on the teens, they were eating pizza and watching clips of The Office, telling me they'd "changed their mind" about HSM2. LOL (My younger kids loved it though)

I'm 27 and I love Highschool Musical- I even bought the DVD and watch it at least once a month. It's cheesy, but it's good cheese. (although I should state that I'm a Disney freak, so it has to be really bad for me to not watch it)

About the book- I knew I should have been reading blogs earlier.

At 12:59 AM, Blogger Kayla said...

Yeah um, I recorded it while at a party today and I'm watching it now.

I've seen both, and while they are pretty lame, they're some of the best disney channel movies made in a long time (which doesnt say much for disney channel movies). I must admit, though, some of the songs are pretty catchy- i find my self hmming some of them from time to time. I dont like that the movies have become an object of obsession, but, seen in moderation, theyre mildly entertaining

I emailed you, but it bounced back:-(

And I SO wanted a copy....**sigh**

At 9:49 AM, Blogger Angela/SciFiChick said...

Shoot. I should have checked the blog more often.

well, drat! Missed the book giveaway. I'll be stocking the bookstore next week to get it.

As far as HSM2 . . . my girls watched all 3 "versions" of it this weekend -- the Friday night preiere, the Saturday night "facts and questions", and the Sunday night sing-a-long. tehehe. . .and Dvr'ed it all 3 times. I watched it with them the first time. I like it for the messages it sends. Although I wish all those Disney shows/movies would stop using the word "hottie" . . .that's one thing I'd prefer for my girls to not pick up!

I'll admit, I have the music for both movies on my iPod.ROFL, and I think I have all the songs to the first one memorized. But it makes for good "compromise music" when we're in the van.
