SATC 2- My Thoughts

Well since I’m a girl after Carrie Bradshaw’s heart I figured I would share my thoughts on the new movie. I haven’t read any of the reviews because I wanted to see it for myself before I considered someone else’s opinion. I liked the movie and the plot in general but there was something off and contrived about it. The product placement throughout was ridiculous. Rolex, Trojan, Apple (which is more ok than the rest since Carrie has always been a Mac user but this time it was Charlotte’s iPhone), and others were splashed all over the movie. The clothes were fabulous as always, but too much. I don’t sit on my couch in an evening gown, so why should it be believable that Carrie does? In general I think the first movie was much better. Because of the success of the first one though every brand in the world was chomping at the bit to get into this one. There were definitely some very funny parts (Liza doing Single Ladies anyone?) that had me cracking up. But there were also parts meant to be funny that just weren’t. The girls also looked so old and worn out. Well except Samantha and her various hormone replacement therapies. I feel like there has to be another movie in the future because there were still a lot of unanswered questions. With the first movie they wrapped everything up by the end but not with this one. I still think something is going to happen with Samantha and Smith Jared, Carrie has way too many past loves for Aiden to be the only one that pops up, I think Miranda and Steve are going to have another baby now that she’s gotten a better job, and Charlotte is just going to go crazy from trying to be too perfect. ¬†Oh, and I think Carrie and Big will have kids. It came up way to much during the movie for something to not happen from it.

Twenty Things.

1. I generally like animals more than people.

2. I used to have to sneak shoes I bought past my mom because she forbade me to buy any more.

3. I am a gigantic pothead, I love weed more than alcohol.

4. I still love alcohol though.

5. I could make more money at a different job but I like it, even if some days I claim to hate it.

6. I can cook really, really well.

7. I’m trying to write a novel.

8. I’m pretty much a total nympho but I haven’t gotten much lately.

9. Country music is my favorite. I love any song that tells a story though.

10. I’m in love with two different people for two different reasons.

11. I love hot weather but have to be cold to sleep.

12. I can decorate the shit out of any space.

13. I never know whether to say it’s a disease or a condition. Either way, fuck fibro.

14. My biggest regret is that I couldn’t pass bootcamp and be in the Navy right now.

15. Every plant I buy or plant ends up dying. I’ve never had a green thumb.

16. The best compliment I’ve ever gotten was “You look just like Audrey Hepburn!” She probably doesn’t remember me but I will always remember her.

17. Probably the most fun I’ve had with my mom was the afternoon at the nude beach in St. Maarten.

18. I own more LSU paraphernalia than any other brand of clothing. I even have a LSU Snuggie.

19. I don’t have cable, but I do have a lot of movies.

20. I like watching shit blow up more than the average girl, I hate wrecking cars in NASCAR though.

Is there AA for buying shoes?

I got my state tax return today, so I did what any irresponsible person would do, pretended it never existed and shopped. The best friend and I indulged in some much needed girl time and shopped our way around our favorite town. After we lost our hangovers and woke up. Last night we had the biggest party we’ve had at our new apartment yet and I got HAMMERED. I seriously haven’t been that drunk since I stumbled my away around St. Maarten. And that’s the day I went to the nude beach with my mom. The last thing I remember about last night was taking one shot of sour apple Burnette’s. I apparently took two. And then fell. I woke up this morning still drunk and when I looked down still clothed. My roommate dropped me into bed, pulled the covers up to my knees, and threw the dogs in with me. So as you can tell, in order to fully recover, shopping was needed. I bought two pairs of pink wedges, but they’re totally different, I swear, and two pairs of flip flops. One pair is Patron and one pair is Corona. And while both are alcohol, both are completely different. I got a pair of Rock and Republic jeans for $38. I got a pair of Citizens of Humanity for $21. I also got a bunch of tops, but none are so exciting that I have to share. And now, I have to go hang all this shit up.

Can’t sleep so I decided to do this….

I feel so much like Carrie Bradshaw sometimes that I figured it was my time to write a blog similar. Unfortunately I don’t live her fabulous life with her fabulous shoes. In fact I am stuck in BFE North Carolina living on next to nothing. I still have pretty shoes though. I just moved to a new place near Charlotte and this will try and be an interesting chronicle in starting over in a new place. If it’s not get the fuck over it, it’s my blog. Since it’s already 2:47am I will be cutting this one short and continuing tomorrow. I’ve already got some ideas for posts so be on the look out imaginary people that aren’t reading my blog.
