In preparation for the yanking of numbers 1 and 32 from my mouth’s collection of teeth, I borrowed DVDs from the library (I’m still technically unemployed and there’s a branch not even a two-minute walk from my front door, why not?). The New York Public Library has no vast selection so out of my visit, I borrowed An Education (finally acquaint myself with this cute girl named Carrie Mulligan), I’m Still Here (no matter how crazy Joaquin Phoenix may seem, I think we’re all the fooled ones), and Sex and the City 2 (I have no real explanation for this, but for some reason…). I decided to watch this first.
It’s even more ridiculous than the first and such a bummer experience compared to watching the first (snickering with Jules at 11pm while killing time before Jason’s 1am set time). Liza Minelli performs Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” - not just sings, performs! The clothes are amazing as usual. Carrie doesn’t have a rock on her finger, just a wedding band (something I’ve always thought about although this has me thinking a little differently and I wouldn’t mind if my Mr. Big forced me to wear it every day). And during a girls’ night out, over-the-top karaoke sesh, Carrie is wearing this half skirt over a pair of pants that I cannot stop dreaming about.

It reminds me of that episode of Friends - the first season finale where Rachel exchanges a birthday present from Monica and buys a half-skirt layered over a mini. Anyone know it? Do they still make those? I want it. Stat.
PS - one day I’ll tell you about the time I met The Blonds, the guys who made the studded shoulders Samantha’s wearing.
