I confess. I caved. I swore I would never watch High School Musical and I did. And now I'm paying for it, night and day.
I thought it looked like something I would like at first. Til I heard bits and pieces of the soundtrack in Amy's car and thought I was going to have to pull over so I could vomit on the side of the road. It sounded like the cheesiest, gaggiest movie ever. Every girl sounded like they were singing with clothespins pinching their noses, every boy sounded like they were auditioning for "So You Think You Can Be in a Boy Band." I couldn't wait for the H.S.M. craze to fade away, like I was certain it would.
But it didn't. And didn't. And didn't. It was everywhere! Suddenly this pre-teen made-for-tv Disney movie was a smash hit and everyone was talking about it. And if you know anything about me, I have to be a part of what everyone is talking about, especially if it's a movie.
So I borrowed it from Danyelle. Biggest mistake of my life. Wait, check that. Biggest mistake was letting Macy watch it with me.
I was really excited when I realized Macy could watch it with me. (I knew everyone else had let their kids watch it) I knew it was something she'd really like. Well, I was right. She really liked it. No wait, she loved it. Now we watch it at least twice a day.
Did I hate it? No. I would categorize it as somewhere between a guilty pleasure and one of those things that bugs you so bad you have to watch it. I was surprised that I didn't hate it. But you have to admit, it's a little addicting. The characters are impossibly cute, and the singing, although nauseating, somehow draws you into their Rated G world. But here is where my problem lies: those *!@#*& catchy songs. I can't get them out of my head! Never before have I had songs stick with me like these. Night and day, it's out of control.
Making dinner, I'll suddenly realize I've been singing over and over, "We're soaring! We're flying!"
Cleaning the house, it's "getcha getcha getcha getcha head in the game"
But by far the worst is waking up in the middle of the night to, "This feeling's like no other, I want you to know!"
I feel like a crazy person, I can't get make it go away! Does anyone know of a support group I can join for people like me? I think I'll go online to look. In the meantime, I just wanna say, "We're all in this together!'
