And The Dreamiest Teen of 2008 Award Goes To…

Over The Holiday Break, I watched High School Musical 2. I had mentioned to one of My Fourth Graders that I had had it Tivod since its premiere in August, but had yet to Watch It. This resulted in a chorus of, “WHAT???!!! OHMY GOD YOU HAVE TO WATCH HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 2!!! IT IS EVEN BETTER THAN HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL THE FIRST ONE!!!! I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU HAVEN’T WATCHED IT YET, MISS THE DAILY RANDI!!!! THAT’S CRAZY!!!!! I HAVE SEEN IT, LIKE, 143 TIMES ALREADY!!! OHMYGOD!!!!!! WAHHHHHHHH!!!!” from Several Other Fourth Graders within Earshot of the original conversation. So, I figured I better go home and watch High School Musical 2.

This is What I Know: Kids are An Excellent Judge of whether Something is Good or Not. For example, Many Students have told me that the movie, Eight Below was Excellent. Upon viewing, I realized they were Right. When Spiderman 3 came out, I asked Some Kids if They Liked It and they said, “Eh. There were Too Many Bad Guys.” I watched it and thought, “The Kids were Right Again! Too many Bad Guys!” Lots of Kids have told me that they Hated Pirates of the Caribbean 3 because it was Way Too Complicated. I have yet to see it, though. I don’t know if they are Right about That One.

But, I do know that The Kids were Correct about High School Musical 2! It was Really Really Good! Mostly because That Zac Efron is One Dreamy Teen. I would Seriously Paper My Walls with his Dreaminess, but I think Totally Awesome Fiancé would Object. No. I Mean It. How did Zac Efron get So Dreamy? Why wasn’t Such Dreaminess around when I was Still A Teenager? I had to settle for Kirk Cameron and Charlie Sheen. Not Fair and Not Nearly As Dreamy.

And so, I am presenting Zac Efron with The Dreamiest Teen of 2008 Award. Congratulations, Zac.

And, Yes, Zac, you can Thank Me anyway You Would Like.

(I Know: In My Dreams.)

I just woke up from a nap!

Have you seen him in the new _Hairspray_ movie? He's dreamy in that, too.

My friends kids all rave about High School Musical and High School Musical 2 but I have no idea what these moves are or about. This post makes me want to find out!

PS. I 'm jealous you'll get to see Lost. I don't think I'll be getting it here in Germany, so please no spoilers!!! :-)

The kids are right about Pirates 3. Trust me.

I got the same reaction from my little cousins when I announced that I had yet to see the original High School Musical. Holy shit, they were shocked. So I didn't bother adding that I thought that blond girl looked better before the nose job! I recently fell upon your blog and love it, you crack me up!

Thank you thank you thank you for making me feel better about my secret crush on Zac Efron. I watch HSM with my 7 year old and we both squeal at how dreamy he is. I rationalize this by saying that I AM NOT A CREEP because there's a slight resemblance between Z.E. and my blue-eyed, black-haired hubby. That's totally a strech, but it makes me feel a little better. (And yes, he's retro-dreamy in Hairspray too.)I'm so glad I'm not the only adult who has devoted a blog post to this, although mine was, in fact, back in August. Daily Randi, I'm so sorry that no one told you that HSM2 is more fun than TMZ!!!

Oh, I saw Hairspray... Hairspray, incidentally, was Well Reviewed by The Kids, too. And, yes, Zac Efron is Very Dreamy in it.

*Zac*

Oh, yeah. I totally feel like a dirty ol woman for thinking Zac Efron is hot. For an especially hot pic of him, Google his Rolling Stone cover. Wait, that sounded dirty...

I, too, feel that zac efron is dreamy. Did you see that wife beater he was wearing in HSM 2, so sexy. And i 100% agree with you Randi, he can thank me anyway he wants to...
