Yes, that's the G-rated name for the show and movie in our house! I don't know about you but I have been counting down the days until I can go see the movie. The occasion is so momentous that I actually went to the movie theater to see it. As anyone with kids can attest this is a true rarity, except the times that I have gone to see something animated of course!
Being such a huge fan I was beyond thrilled to learn that Carrie's friend, Stanford Blatch (Willie Garson) is a fan of Hampton Paper Designs. I mean really, does life get much better than this? Maybe a scene in which Carrie is writing a note to Mr. Big on her personalized Hampton Paper Correspondence Card.... hey a girl can dream!
In anticipation of the movie, there are contests galore going on here in Washington, DC. A favorite of mine is which girl are you...Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda or Samantha? I thought it would be great fun to poll my closest friends to find out who they thought they were most like (and whether or not I agreed). In case you haven't already guessed I am Charlotte all the way. If you need proof look just beyond the Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry to the last movie when Charlotte brought her own food to Mexico. Did you think that was far fetched? A few years ago on a work trip to Mexico I did the exact same thing. Yes, for 5 days and nights I ate and only things that came out of my own suitcase-- water, saltines and graham crackers.
After claiming the spot of Charlotte, I polled my friend and have included their response for fun!
I am not nearly as stylish as Carrie (but then again who is?) but like single Carrie I live in a tiny house in order to indulge my obsession with $800.00 shoes!
These days I act like Miranda, cranky and overworked and but alas I am unwilling to go red.I have Carrie's nose and name but that is where the similarities end. The days of resembling Samantha are long gone. If I buy this new house west of DC it will be the equivalent of Miranda moving to Brooklyn. The right house in a location I never thought I would be living.
Love it girls, I think I will be Candace Bushnell if its ok with you all. I like the idea of thinking it all up and writing about it but never actually having to do it.
Hmmm all the good ones are taken. Only in my dreams could I be Samantha and I am not even sure I would make it out of the gate.
If you havent seen the movie yet - Enjoy and let me know if you know where I can find Carrie's white dress in the opening scene.
