Help Me Understand...



I never watched this show with the exception of the occasional 30 minute syndicated version that is on late at night after Friends or something. So I never got caught up in the hype.

Apparently it is a big deal.

So Curtis and I went out on a date Friday night. We went to see Iron Man. I walked up to get the tix while Curtis got us a table at the restaurant. Every show for this movie was sold out and lines were forming for the next showing (40 minutes away.) People...there were women of all ages dressed as their favorite SITC characters. Which is fine I guess if you are young and look really good in skimpy clothes. This, however, is not such a good idea if you are 50+ wearing skimpy dresses with bows, large flowers, and bright colored heels. My advice to these women is to find friends who will tell you the truth.

And another thing...who can enjoy a movie dressed up all fancy with heels on? First of all, the theaters are like 20 degrees. Put a sweater on. I'm quite certain to fit into those dresses, more than half the crowd was wearing spanx. Seriously. Isn't it more fun to wear jeans and just let it all hang out while you enjoy a big buttery tub of popcorn? That is what the movies are about people. Instead, I stood in line to get my big buttery tub of popcorn with 100 women that looked like they were going to prom, giggling, and half-drunk from the cosmos they just drank who were ordering diet cokes and water. Boring.

I'm just thankful that to see that the fans of Iron Man were not into dressing up as their favorite characters. An Iron Suit would not have been comfortable at all.

Becky and I went to see Indiana Jones that night as well, and we had the same experience. We even saw a limo pull up and three clearly intoxicated middle-aged women stumble out to see Sex In the City. Strange. As for Iron Man:
Some do dress up

So last night I went to go see "Sex and the City" and I went with 3 of my girlfriends however we all wore jeans, tshirts, and flip flops...our usual. However in front of us there were some late 40somethings (who wore clothes similar to ours) HOWEVER when music would play they would start dancing in their seats and saying things like "yea sista" but they seemed like a fun group of gals..and behind us there were some late 30somethings trying hard to be Carrie....copied the funky clothes and hair and all and they were speechless the whole movie. Boring! And of course we went to dinner afterwards and their were several groups of women in the restaurant...all ordering cocktails. I really enjoyed the movie, it lived up to its expectations however there is no desire on my part AT ALL to be anything like those women, no how, no way, never. And I don't quit get the desire to be anything like them.....maybe I am not old enough yet and it will hit in a few years..lol.

just so you know.... i was dressed up to see Sex and the City opening night.

Christie...knowing how much you love that show, i did look for you in line. But I was glad you weren't part of that crowd of 100 drunk crazy women...they were wearing me out. And you belong in the group of twenty-somethings with an amazing figure who COULD wear a skimpy dress. Not that you wear skimpy dresses...

I KNOW! And I am not out of touch with pop-culture and popular shows like this, but I feel like everywhere I turn (and every channel I turn) it is all about this movie this weekend! I'm trying to figure out if there was a FRIENDS movie made if I would freak out like they are. :) Maybe I would wear leather pants like Ross or a good sweater vest like Chandler.

Wow....after I saw the movie the first thing I said was "That actually worked, they TOTALLY need to do a FRIENDS movie!"
