I don't know if you're familiar with that movie, you just wanna watch movies this year. And and so she's getting an award hadn't you met her before I have not met her. She did come to Hamilton. But she said she couldn't come back stage because she was crying and she didn't want anyone to see her messed up makeup. So she bounced I know she saw the show in like that because she tweeted it out it, and yeah, the best Twitter feed ever have any of your followership on Twitter. It's like the greatest and there's a lot of emojis involved. It's it's it's a masterclass in it is it's like, I she text me, and it's mostly emojis. It's an I don't know.

I like to think of it as words can't contain share. Yeah. Can't could change pictures. Yeah. You're right. I didn't think of it that way. So let's talk about Mary Poppins because this is I I mean, I grew up loving that movie. And I think everybody is really excited for this to come out. But it's a sequel how it's a fifty year old sequel. Yeah. It came fused later, but it actually takes place about twenty years after the original twenty five years. So the banks children have grown up and Mary Poppins comes back into their lives. And you think she's there to take care of Michael's kids? But I think she's there to take care of all the banks children. And and the thing about what you had to learn how to do was a lot of crazy things. The hardest thing for you to learn you would think it's the incredibly elaborate dance numbers and that was hard. But there's like one scene in this movie where I light a lamp ride a bike steal an apple from the cart. Throw it to an orphan child all while singing in a cockney accent. That's the same. That moment is the hardest. Ten seconds of my life. Because you have to actually toss the apple in the right place. Yes. Not to mention the other thing you're talking to are takes of me, just absolutely whacking poor orphan shelter. Just throwing. Well, I'm helping hill. John. Stuck in your mouth? Well, I can't wait to see it. It just it looks great. And I love Emily. She was here not too long ago. And it just it looks easy. Absolutely perfect in this movie. And it is not hard to pretend to be having fun with Mary Poppins amazing adventures on the best jobs of my life. Well, I can't wait to see it. He's a sweet guy and super talented and in a year ED's gonna be talking about Hamilton. As if as if I die to ever see him for a year. Mary was like show. You don't watch Rachel meadow. I'm like, no, I don't she's like, I think he would like Rachel meadow. And I go I don't really want something that has such a position.."
