glittergirl has officially left the city.....

with chris reminiscing about old blog posts, i've gone back to read some of them. i started this blog on june 28th, 2005. this was before i met groundcat. (oddly enough he started blogging only the month before i did.) i lived in cleveland with 4 cats and 2 dogs. it's odd thinking about "then & now"..... but i can honestly say i'm happy with the now. so this looking back, it's good.

fyi- i love doing image searches on google.
this gal came up in my search for "glittergirl in the city."
so i'm changing the blog name. now it's just "glittergirl"and here's one reason why....


my rant.............. every time i see a commercial or poster for the sex in the city movie, i find myself feeling angry & annoyed. it's an odd reaction. i sort of liked the show when it first came out (or liked the idea of it, since i couldn't afford cable.) sarah jessica parker was quirky & cute, and the idea of sexually liberated chicks who dug fashion and drank and said funny stuff seemed like a decent idea for a tv show. i caught a few episodes a few years after it began, when rachel bossed me to watch it with her. i didn't hate it, but..... it annoyed me a little bit. then it ended, and all seemed right in the world. there were rumors of a film version, and gossip about the 4 lead actors fighting about salary. blah, blah, blah, who cares? then they started filming and photos were being "leaked" to all the entertainment news outlets. blah, blah, blah...

here's what bothers me about it all: the women look horrible. so much makeup and really obnoxious fashions. the story line is basically a "happy ending" for the main character, since she marries the man of her dreams. of course the man of her dreams was a sleazy older guy who wouldn't commit, married someone else, then cheated on his wife with the main character. gross. then i see clips and i got through the roof. these 4 characters are not funny or interesting. they are caricatures of what middle america thinks a sexually liberated woman might be. also, enough with the vag jokes. it was edgy and funny 10 years ago. now it's embarrassing. the character who is the "sexed up old gal" makes vag jokes seem like something the "sexed up old gal" from "golden girls" would say if they were on HBO!!!!!

i'm gonna guess i am not the first blogger to compare the 2 shows...

also: you know you're tired/stressed at work when.... you're sitting at your desk and think to yourself, "oh, i better put on my seat belt!!!" (i actually started to reach over to grab some imaginary seat belt....) which means, it's time for more caffeine. bye-bye!!!

I disagree!

Chris said...

I have to agree with rachel, a) because it's rachel, and b) because it means disagreeing with you, jennifer.

of course that means I'm throwing in my support for SITC, which feels...odd.

The seat belt dealy seems normal. You already had your "special" hockey helmet on, so what's a little more safety?

btw, have they come by to pad the corners of your desk, yet?
