I had a couple of topics of choice today but I am taking the road of the one that will make me feel less blergh as today has been a total and utter blergh day. I may post about it tomorrow
So as some of you may know, I got the whole set of Sex and the City on DVD as a part of my birthday present. I’ve been watching it on and off over the last few days and Carrie’s commentary kind of made me think of my own life. I mean, they say that women identify with this show because it is secretly a part of who they all are. One thing I can say is that if any of us had the expectations and musings on men that these four women do the world would be a much more STD rampant place
In all seriousness, it made me start thinking about my friends and myself. Do I have a Samantha, Carrie, Charlotte and Miranda in my life? Truthfully, not in whole. I think each of my friends has elements of each character but not solely represent what any of them are.
I started thinking about the times I have been single. See, my friends have always really had somebody. I didn’t often have single friends until I started at Uni. Even then, they were quite a bit younger and in a different place to me.
To be honest, I haven’t ever really been single.(I will clarify, I am not complaining but I also don’t believe being single is a bad thing, embrace it while you have it and embrace it when you don’t… )
Listening to Carrie analysing everything reminded me of me and my besties sitting on one of their couches one night. In a similar manner to the girls in Sex I remember being miserable and wondering where I had gone wrong. AND much like the Sex girls I had been single for all of about 3.2 seconds and it lasted all of about 5.6 seconds.
In the same night my besties instructed me to write a list of what I was looking for in a man. Interesting concept. See, I am sure most women would have written the classic “Tall, dark, handsome, money, money, money, money, fit, money, abs, money, romantic, money, smart, money”…
This is what my list consisted of:
- Likes sport. Doesn’t have to play it but has to like it.
- Is a bit of a geek (But not dungeons and dragons material)
- Has reasonable personal hygiene (A shower is suffice)
- Is a little chubby (Never been one for muscle men or slim jims)
- Likes beer. (A massive pre-requisite… It is a manly trait not possessed by previously dated individuals)
I believe I made a realistic goal of what I wanted in a man. And you know, Kelly fits into every single one of those criteria. Win for me. Love you honey xoxoxoxo
I love Sex and the City because it is easy viewing and not wholely and soley because one of the girls represents me. I have been through phases all of them have been through. (Well for me anyway). It does kind of make you think about everything you are or know.
And you know, when I was 18 when it first came out I remember being disgusted at the topics covered. Now I am 30 and I have gone back to that first series and watched it through I appreciate it a lot more.
This isn’t meant to be written in any comedic capacity… This is just my ramblings from being influenced by the great powers that be… Televison.
