Memorial Weekend

2 Jun

Right in the middle of failing Managerial Accounting, I decided a trip to Lake Jackson and a Memorial Day outing with a few gals to lunch and Sex and the City 2 was what I needed.

I was thankful that nobody dressed up way over the top.  Thankfully, no hats, stilettos, oversized gucci bags or overpriced manolos.  We enjoyed a quick bite and saw the movie.

It was good.  Not as good as the first one but all in all, decent.  Everything seemed over-the-top.  The fashion, the banter, the drama where there was none…but the part that got to me was *spoiler alert* the fact that Carrie kissed another guy (her ex Aidan) and got a sparkling rock for it. 


In what world??????????????????????


Give me friggin break.  *another spoiler alert* Big should have gotten his own apartment and two days off from the marriage out of that screw up.

Samantha made me cringe sometimes.  I am surprised she was not executed in Abu Dhabi.

The wedding scene was totally strange…are gay weddings this bizarre?  Liza Minelli singing “Single Ladies?”  Priceless.

Made me forget I was failing Managerial Accounting.

    ah managerial accounting..memories, didn’t help that I had a jackass of a teacher. I actually think it is easier than financial sha. Hang in there.

    I actually felt the same way about SATC2, I tried to review it on tayne-ment but it ended up sounding like a recap. the whole movie was gaudy, for lack of a better word.

    Re: Carrie and Big – My thought process was if anyone else would understand it’ll be Big, but nyeh that was just one of many many overthe top unrealistic things in the movie.

    I didn’t really like it. The fashion was gorgeous but over the top and the story was… lacking… to say the least. The first one was definitely better. This one was like an extended commercial, to be honest.

      I am surprised that they did not wear their clothes with the labels sticking out.

    That movie was horrible and so culturally insensitive. i was just cringing from left and right. So all over the place. Its funny how carrie kissed Aidan but in the series, he was the one who always wanted to stay in with a bucket of chicken. Confusicus ni carrie yen.

      Carrie is one big drama queen. She got her man. She got her gorgeous life and she still somehow managed to find something to complain about.
