Awkward silence and a movie

Sorry for the awkward silence around here lately. Who am I kidding, I seem to thrive in awkward situations. To be honest, I had nothing worthwhile to blog about as we're in the throes of planning our basement renovation (all we've got down there are concrete walls and a scary toilet), planning a trip to Italy for next spring (those air miles people insist we book a year in advance), peppered with me trying to find a Happy Hour that will still have me social obligations here and there.

It hit 70 degrees here today (five days ago there was two feet of snow on the ground) so I think spring has finally sprung. Which means there are exactly 2 more months until this:
UPDATED ON 4/9/10 TO ADD: This is the most recent preview (just released).
Oh my, I'm breathless with anticipation.


Original preview:
I promise I won't display a SATC 2 countdown in my sidebar. No, I think the countdown calendar I created (the one with the pink cosmos and Jimmy Choos all over it, currently residing by my bed) will suffice. I don't want to over do it.

Talk about awkward.

I'll be honest, I never watched the show. I knew just enough about it to enjoy the movie for the pure fun it offered. Does that make me a poser? For what it's worth I did know what a cosmo was long before the series came along. Oh, how I knew........


Since this post is pretty heavy & serious stuff, let me switch gears. Question: So, I've heard New Yorkers walk everywhere. How do you walk in those stilettos all day? You must be rocking the Dr. Scholl's gel inserts or something. I'd love to know your secret. Uh. Did I just create yet another awkward moment.

Update: Voila! Anonymous Commenter to the rescue: "The key to walking around NYC in heels all day is wearing high-quality shoes with leather soles that flex when you walk and stretch and grow over time with your feet. Good quality shoes are worth every penny. No matter how glam you think your nine west strappy sandals are, if they have synthetic soles, they are going to hurt after an hour or so. So don't wear cheap shoes." Thanks Anonymous. So what you're saying is that me and my Target peep-toed pumps wouldn't last a day in NYC. Oh hell.

Any other SATC lovers out there? Haters? Discuss.


P.S.
I'd like to extend a warm welcome to my new readers. I'm seeing a lot of new "faces" and that makes me so thrilled. Thank you for reading and commenting!! And as always, thank you to my longtime readers, for sticking with me! Even if this might henceforth be dubbed the "awkward blog".

  1. Loved the show and love the movie. I don't care how cliche they are. As for how those New Yorkers walk around daily in those shoes - I'm also at a loss!

  2. oh fc, if you lived near me, i am certian we'd be bff's. with that said, i'm a HUGE SATC lover. i met sarah jessica parker way back in the day when she was promoting satc at our local mall! she did a fashion charity show, that maybe 100 people attended. i was a big fan from the beginning. i had her sign an autograph for me, that collin still makes fun of because i framed it, and have it displayed alongside family photos. now that, my dear is awkward. also, i made my college roomates agree to HBO just so i could watch every episode and on top of that i have all the dvd's. okay, i'm gonna stop now before i lose all my followers. all 20 of them. haha! xoxo

  3. Has Samantha been outed as a dude yet? I'm not all caught up on my SATC and inquiring minds want to know. I can get behind a cosmo though, fer sure. Or 6 of them. Either way, I may enjoy when you come to blog about nothing really more than when you actually have a "topic". Keep bs'ing FC!

  4. Okay, pretty sure I've never commented before, but LOVE the shout out to SATC! You should probably design a room in your house in SATC style. Just sayin'.

  5. Mmmmhmmm -- SATC on HBO and on the big screen lover here. On TBS? Not so much.

    Miss you girl! Glad to see you pop out once in a while, send some of that sunshine my way mmk?

  6. I didn't start watching the show until it ended, and then I sort of got into the reruns.

    Truth be told, initially I was all, "Ewww..." when I'd catch it on -- I have no idea why! Now I think it's great (although Carrie still annoys me)!

  7. Always have been, and always will be, a huge SATC show. My friends and I just can't get enough of those gals!

    I heard a rumor that Aiden would be making an appearance in the second movie. I don't know if this is true or not, but let's cross our fingers it is! :)

  12. Ooohh I am so looking forward to your basement transformation. I just know it is going to be amazing. A trip to Italy?! Please take me with you!!

  13. Awkward or not, I'm still hanging around your blog :) And if we lived in the same city, I would so clean the dust off my stilettos, ditch HandyMan at home and watch SATC with you.

  14. LOVE satc...you should get the dvd's of the show..so good!

  15. I'm so glad you are making your come back! And as far as SATC, I can't wait for the sequel & the books. You know the books about Carrie in her teenage years?! Loved the show & the 1st movie.

  16. I watched the movie three times before I watched it from beginning to end ... and I loved it. So, I watched season one through six. AND I LOVED IT. Absolutely loved it.

  17. I barely ever watched the show, but once I saw the movie I was hooked, I'm saving up for the pretty velvet box set of all the seasons.. so yes, it's okay to be obsessed.

    And me & stilettos don't get along, I can barely walk from the car to a bar, much less all day long.

  18. I didn't really watch SATC on TV either but I liked the first movie and I'm pretty excited about the second one. Perhaps we can be posers together???

    I too have wondered how New Yorkers do it in heels all day. I work in a job where I walk all day and I plan my heel-wearing for when I know it'll be a slower day. Otherwise, it's flats, flats, flats.

  19. Aww, really miss you!

    I never really got into SATC... I know, I know... so bad. I can't watch it with DH because he's always screaming at the TV telling SJP to remove that mole! Hahahaha Crazy! :)

    Now, I have watched a few reruns on TV and I've really liked it. Now, if I can only find the time to watch the whole series from start to finish!

  20. Hi again! What a fun post. I love SATC. Love the writing, love the acting, the fashion, the fun...love New York. Cannot WAIT for the movie to come out. I fear that even if it's totally lame that I will love it. I am that devoted.

  22. I KNOW without a doubt if we lived even ONE hour apart...we would be brunching just like the girls and of course be BFFs. :) Hehe!

    Now for my little brain fart...here I thought I had responded to you yesterday on this post but somehow...it never got up. Who knows....just know we can be awkward together.

    Back at IU when I was a summer camp director, I would rent all the SATC seaons for get together marathons..ut really it was to get my fix...and on IU's doller. Shhhh!!!! :)

    You my dear make me laugh...and I LOVED your post...heck I love them ALWAYS.

    Hopefully one day we can drink a cosmo or brunch together...Oooohhh how fun to do it in NYC!!! Fun!!! Ok...pinky swear.

    Cheers~

  25. Ok, I think I'm officially THE only one not counting down the days to this sequel - never got into the show.

  26. I love SATC!! I watched all the episodes courtesy of a friend's DVD collection and am eagerly looking forward to the 2nd movie!

  27. I love love SATC and cannot wait for the second movie! Your blog is fab by the way, not awkward at all :)

  28. That's funny - I didn't start watching until after the series had ended and then I watched every single episode on On Demand or on video.

    I loved the first movie. It's such great eye candy and I thought they did a good job with the storyline. I was SOBBING through the entire thing because my husband and I were in a HUGE fight. (Although I think I would've given Big the heave-ho at the end.)

  29. love, love SATC... movie and shows!

    not all new yorkers wear heels all day {i live in flats} and walk everywhere. but most girls wear flats while commuting & then change into heels just before they get to work. they just slip a pair into their bag & voila! true about quality shoes though, i learned that fast.

  30. Love love love SATC!! Thanks for sharing the trailer! I hadn't seen it yet so now I am pumped {oooh bad pun}! Don't judge me :p

  31. Hello! New reader here. I love the show (the edited versions of course...I'm a lady!) and LOVED the movie. I'm a teensy bit annoyed about the next movie. I think it looks ridiculous. However, I will be seeing it the minute it comes out anyway.

Let's get weird up in here.
