thanks to the mega-hype surrounding the movie, i’ve been thinking a lot about the movie and the characters this week. like a million and one other girls out there, i relate the most to sarah jessica parker’s character, carrie. and ironically, a rolling stone article on the girls of the hills best clarified why: it’s because carrie’s a searcher – “for true love, the perfect job and friends that never let her down,” wrote jason gay, the writer who did the hills feature. i think that a lot of us are searchers. i know i am.
and that’s why i’m happy to indulge my wannabe-carrie bradshaw self in the cotton-candy colored sex and the city movie. times are hard, you guys. the world isn’t cotton-candy colored; in fact, i feel kind of lucky to have a job right now. but for two hours and 25 minutes this weekend, i’m going to let that reality (work, money, gas prices, rent, car payment) slip away and concentrate, via miranda, samantha, charlotte and carrie and her manolos, on my love of the search.
