I can't believe I'm doing this...

Ok... I'll just... say it. IlikeHighSchoolMusical.


I. Like. HighSchoolMusical.



I mean, yes, I'm technically going to celebrate my 10th High School Reunion next summer, so I probably shouldn't watch anything on the Disney Channel, and I rant and rave about smart, quality programming, but dammit, I can't help myself! Sure, they're just ripping off Grease and, with number 2, Dirty Dancing, and it's cheesy and overdone and ridiculous, but it's somehow, supremely entertaining. And if I were still into Tiger Beat, Zac Efron would be my Johnny Depp.

Speaking of Zac, and my reason for posting this entry, his musical number, "Bet On It," is getting a lot of play... more for humorous reasons than anything else. It's a little bit MJ, a little bit Footloose (maybe that's the reason for all the remake rumors), and his defiant foot stomp at the beginning gives me the giggles every time. But, I laughed out loud when I saw this on Sarah's blog:

What was the best part of High School Musical 2, Sarah?

Why, I'm glad you asked. It was this part when Zac Efron's character, Troy Bolton, expresses his anger through interpretive dance. It's beyond awesome.

I use the fact that my 10 year old niece loves HSM to indulge in my new sort-of obsession.

The best part about watching the sequel was 'guessing' what was going to happen next in the storyline and my niece thought I had watched it already. I wanted to say 'No, I've watched Dirty Dancing.' But I bit my tongue.

Glad to know I'm not alone.

See, very smart. I have no good reason. At all.

It's very funny how predictable it is... now we should try to guess the storyline of number 3 if they do it.

West Side Story? Grease 2 - wait, that had no story. Heh. Oh, I know... RENT!
