A Very Sexy Friday



Tonight we'll be doing the exact same thing as 99% of boring suburban housewives across the country...GOING TO SEE SEX AND THE CITY 2.  Don't judge. We never claimed to be overly original.

I'm excited for the clothes, but mostly Italian dinner beforehand. Unlike the stars of the film, I have a healthy relationship with food, mainly, I eat it. Anyways, the big night has sparked an intense debate in LiLa Land. It's the age old "who gets to be Carrie?" argument. This time around we decided to mix things up a little bit and fight via Skype...

Lisa: So excited for tomorrow night!

Laura: I know. Garlic bread and impractical fashion.

Lisa: I sort of wish we could just watch the movie on mute. The first one would have been way better that way.

Laura: Yeah, Carrie was so whiney.

Lisa: Hey, don't diss my alter ego.

Laura: YOUR alter ego?

Lisa: Um, yeah. I'm Carrie, Stacey is obviously Charlotte and you're...Miranda.

Laura: You are such a bitch.

Lisa: You're practical! It's a compliment!

Laura: Whatever. I'm Carrie. If anyone is Miranda, it's you! I mean, you're the only one of us who's worked in corporate America and don't forget you had that really unfortunate dye job a couple of years ago.

Lisa: Do not even go there with the hair Ms.-I-looked-exactly-like-Miranda-my-freshman-year-of-college.

Laura: Really? You're bringing up my Felicity hair? That's a stretch.

Lisa: I'm way more adventurous with my fashion than you are and I'm a writer. Just like Carrie.

Laura: Are you kidding? Since when are yoga pants fashion forward? And you don't write books alone you slacker. Whatever, we can both be Carrie.

Lisa: No, way, I'm not sharing Carrie. You can be Samantha.

Laura: Seriously?

Lisa: Well, someone has to be Samantha.

Laura: That's like me telling you that you should be Stanford.

Lisa: That's the best you can do for a comeback? Did someone steal your computer? You're not even making sense.

Laura: Whatever. Let's just arm wrestle for it.

Lisa: Deal.

So, if you happen to be at Jimmy Dadonna's tomorrow night and you see two girls arm wrestling, pull up a chair. Or better yet, send over some Prosecco! Have a fab weekend everyone!

You guys crack me up!

Have a fabulous weekend!

Matthew Rush said...

Boy you ladies are funny ... except somehow I feel this would be even more entertaining if I knew which character was which!

Oh well.

Matthew Rush said...

Oops. I forgot to mention:

Today's guest blogger is THE Elana Johnson!

Jill Wheeler said...

Squeeeeeeeeeeee! Can't wait!!

Jen said...

I freaked as soon as I saw those four girls when I hit your blog!!!! Squeeeeeeeeee!!!! I'm so super excited! I am hoping to get off of work early and see it at 1PM followed by a fabulous night on the town!

Our theater has pink champagne and pink cosmos for the event! Isn't that just fabulous?!!

Rachele Alpine said...

Have fun! We've planned a girl's day to see it a week from Sunday, so hopefully I won't hear too many spoilers! I can't wait! :)

Kim Harrington said...

Man, I wish you guys lived near me.

Candyland said...

Haha. No one *wants* to be Miranda...

Deb said...

LOL!! You two enjoy the movie and your weekend!

Meredith said...

My friend and I are going to see SATC2 tonight, too! I have to admit, though, I'm a mix of Charlotte and Miranda (if that's allowed!), and I'm okay with that :)

Solvang Sherrie said...

Wish I was going to see this. We're taking the kiddos to see Shrek in 3D. *sigh*

Lola Sharp said...

Dude, they're older than me...they're like geriatric.
Menopausing In The City, if you will. And it looks awful.
Still, I'm going to go see it too! Why? The SHOES!!!!!

(I'll be Charlotte)

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I want to be Charlotte! She's so sweet and naive. :D

And I want to look like Samantha when I'm in my 50's.

Kerri C at CK Farm said...

LOL! Have fun at the movies. I feel left out, taking kiddies to see the Prince of Persia. Do you think it will be fashionable? Nah, doubt it.

Christine Fonseca said...

HAHAHA...HOw did I KNOW you would be there!@

Shannon Whitney Messenger said...

*snorts* You guys are hilarious. All I can say is: please bring a video camera. I smell an EPIC vlog in the making. :)

Bethany Elizabeth said...

Ha, watch it on mute... you guys are hiarious. :)

Steph said...

Enjoy the movie. I think Ill wait for dvd for that one. 1) Because the first was such a let down & 2) Because I promised my son I'd take him to see Prince of Persia and lets be honest, Jake G. looks smokin in the previews! :)

Kristi Helvig said...

Love it - my friends and I are doing a girls night out tonight to see it....and are going to eat a ton of food beforehand!

Heidi Willis said...

I clearly need funnier skype partners!!

Is it wrong for me to point out that Miranda is cupping her breast in the picture? And that it totally looks like they photoshopped in her other hand?

Sounds like a great time! Have fun... and lots of good food!

Dara said...

LOL! You'll have to let us know who won arm wrestling :)

Laura Pauling said...

Ha! Didn't even know it was being made into a movie! :) Enjoy.

Marsha Sigman said...

If Lisa is Carrie, Stacey is Charlotte, and Laura is Miranda...I will NOT BE Samantha!!

Although let's face it...she is the prettiest...all right I'll be Samantha.

Julie Musil said...

Enjoy the movie! And do you know anyone who gets to be "naked shower guy" from the first movie?

Christina Lee said...

*WHINE* I want to go!!!!!!

Jill Kemerer said...

Ha! I notice you weren't fighting over who could be Samantha! (The Stanford comment is hilarious!)

I'm passing on this one. I enjoyed watching the series via TBS, but the first movie seemed as if the girls weren't even filmed in the same room. Plus, the commercial for the new one left me scratching my head. A camel? Really? Hmm...

You'll have to tell us if it's worth going to see in the theaters, okay?

Happy Memorial Day weekend!

Jonathon Arntson said...

I am waiting until they have cleaned the martinis off the floor and going next week.

JEM said...

Now I want pizza. Awesome.

K. M. Walton said...

You two are priceless.

Guess what? My cousin owns this AWESOME clothing store called Skirt near Villanova U. She's opening up a second location at the shore in Stone Harbor, NJ this weekend.

The best part?

She rented out the entire Stone Harbor movie theater and is going to set up all of her clothing in the lobby and have cocktails before the movie. She invited 150 of her family, friends and clients.

I am SOOO going. How cool is that?

K. M. Walton said...

Duh, forgot to add it is for the premier of SITC2.

Duh.

The story is now so much better. And relevant.

SWK said...

Funny, I always wanted to be Charlotte and so did my sister. As kids, we fought about who got to be Sabrina when we played Charlie's Angels. Happily, we've branched out with our Glee crushes--I'm a Finn fan and she's a Puck-lover (oh, and our husbands really enjoy our debates on this topic) :)

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Yoga pants are fashion forward? *puts on Uggs and stalks away*
Happy weekend, happy movie, happy dinner! :D

Lydia Kang said...

So funny! you guys are a hoot.
Enjoy SATC and have a great weekend!

Icy Roses said...

Lol, I'm going to see SATC tonight too. I feel stereotypically female. Conveniently, there are four of us friends, so we fight over who is who all the time (still haven't figured it out).

Nobody wants to be Carrie because she's a whiny bitch.

I'm so excited.

Lindsay (a.k.a Isabella) said...

I so want to see SATC2. Me and my friend are going ext week, so I'll have to wait till then. :(

Have a fab time.

Krispy said...

Still on the fence about seeing this one, but I'll probably end up going with the sister.

Enjoy the movie and the long weekend!

Tere Kirkland said...

Sounds like a great time.

Hope y'all actually make it to the show instead of starting a round-robin arm-wrestling and catwalking tournament beforehand. ;)

Enjoy the long weekend!

Talei said...

Love it! ;) I had a similar conversation with friends one night and I ended up being Samantha..I did protest strongly! Enjoy the movie ladies! And when you have a few minutes, I have surprise for you over at my blog xx

jessjordan said...

You 2 are seriously sisters. It cracks me up that you're fighting to be the girl that you both thought was super whiny (yeah yeah yeah ... she's fashion forward or whateva). Lemme know how it is--pretty sure I'm going with my sis tomorrow to watch it! (Even though I anticipate it'll be super lame and plotless, I can't help myself.)

Elana Johnson said...

ROTFL! I seriously need to be injected with your brand of humor.

Katelyn (twaddleoranything) said...

"Garlic bread and impractical fashion" sounds like a fantastic combination. Enjoy! :)

Jemi Fraser said...

LOL :)

Enjoy the food & the movie!! Italian is always the best choice!

Maggie said...

Wow, my mom and aunt would fit right in with you guys. It's a little scary actually. :D

Jeannie Lin said...

LOL. I think I'd have more incentive to go see this one if I had girlfriends about to kibitz with. And really, Miranda is a compliment. I'd love to be Carrie, but honestly, I'm a Miranda. :)

Enjoy!

Talli Roland said...

So how was it? Hope you enjoyed it - and the Italian food beforehand! :)

TerryLynnJohnson said...

I don't even watch sex and the city - don't even know who the heck you guys are talking about, but I still thought this was hilarious.

Cynthia Watson said...

I love Sex and The City - the writing is smart & witty! Hope you enjoyed it (and the dinner)!

Ann Marie Wraight said...

We play who's who from SEX IN THE CITY here in Greece...I ALWAYS get to be MR. BIG...and I SO hate cigars!!

Hope you enjoyed your weekend!

Margo Berendsen said...

Claiming or calling characters can get kind of bloody! I compared a friend once to Kathleen Turner (anyone remember her? uggh, I'm dating myself) and I THOUGHT it was a compliment and she just about took my head off.

ChristaCarol said...

*snort* You ladies crack me the hell up. Love it!!!!

Oh, and because I love you and your readers, because they love you, I want to give you a heads up on my summer giveaway over at my place http://ow.ly/1RUvD fairly oldies but goodies, me thinks. Hope you continue to have a fab weekend!!

Susan Fields said...

That sounds like a conversation I would have with one of my sisters! It's just like being at home. :)

You have a great weekend, too!

Stephanie Jenkins said...

This made me LOL. I'm still trying to convince DH to go see Sex and the City with me--no luck so far! :D
