Grease is the Word?

I can't believe this! Chelsea & Natalie will be thrilled but ugh, I'm not.
Secret Confession - the movie "Grease" just annoys me. I'm not sure why....maybe the obnoxious way John Travolta's lip curls up? (though I liked him in "Sat Night Fever" and "Welcome Back Kotter") Or maybe it's because my college girlfriends loooove Grease and it's hideous sequel, Grease II, and used to jump around on the furniture singing excerpts from both movies? Or maybe it was a bad experience I had my freshman year of college, when I tried out for a musical and had to sing a song on stage all by myself. For reasons I can't remember I sang (or croaked, more like) "You're The One That I Want" from the original movie score. I already knew I wasn't a good singer but I didn't know I was that bad. It was painful. I got a part in the chorus of the show so it wasn't a total wipeout but I still cringe thinking about it.
And here's John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, bringing it all back to me...
