When the boy's away... this is how the girls play...

We watch girly movies and go to a musical.

Roomie and I went to see Spamalot on Sunday. It was glorious. Hilarious, had all of the legendary parts of The Holy Grail without copying the movie too much. I would see this 10 more times. Or more. Highly, highly recommended.

Yesterday, we watched Penelope. This is the best girly fairytale movie ever. Rather than being based on the "Prince Charming solves everything" sort of plot that plays out through most fairytales, the curse in this one is broken when Penelope loves herself and accepts herself for who she is. Aww. There are still (less than charming) princes. However, it's refreshing to see something aimed at young girls which doesn't preach beauty plus prince equals happily ever after.

Now, if you excuse me, I'm going to continue the countdown 'til boy is back. T-8 hours...
