Way too much blind-fanatical estrogen going on my dashboard with this SATC “omg it was so good!” giddy-excitement crap.
Four grown women who can’t, for the lives of them, develop healthy, lasting relationships because of their utterly narcissistic, promiscuous, materialistic, shallow, and self-absorbed ways. This is supposed to “empower” women? What a sad way to measure dignified womanhood. I can’t wait until this whole SATC disaster is finally over for good.
This statement is only very-partially accurate in relation to Samantha.
Charlotte is with Harry, a hairy-in-all-the-wrong-places-and-no-hair-in-the-right-places guy with whom she has a very realistic, solid and loving relationship. This is a guy who is the exact polar opposite of the guy she thought she’d end up with. This character gave up a part of herself, her religion and previously tightly held onto expectations to be with him because she realized that he was the love of her life.
Miranda, like Charlotte, is also with a guy who is the polar opposite of who she thought she’d end up with, a former bartender/now bar owner, very different from her professional, corporate, type-A self. She gave up her life in Manhattan to have a home and life with him, their child and his ailing mother, in Brooklyn (as someone born and raised in Brooklyn, I don’t think that Brooklyn is a “compromise,” but to someone whose life and comfort zone is on the island of Manhattan, it is…and yes, it’s true that many cabs “will not go to Brooklyn.”)
Carrie…well, Carrie is plagued by loving a man with whom she has played the star-crossed lovers game for a decade. So what? How does loving someone despite the fact that they might not be an ideal candidate for a “good mate” make a character/person narcissistic and “unhealthy?”
These women might like expensive footwear and a few of them may have had sex partners in the double or triple digits, but why does that give them the label promiscuous? Male characters in film and men in life can sleep with hundreds of women and NEVER be called promiscuous. This double standard makes me so pissed off.
If women want to go see a film that has, for whatever reasons, the effects of making them feel happy or empowered or distracted from the reality of natural disasters killing hundreds of thousands of people or the never-ending war or women in our zipcode getting raped in their apartment lobby, then just let them be.
I’m so tired of people complaining about their dashboard content, either skip over it or click ‘unfollow.’
Well said! Not every woman is going to be “Miss suzy homemaker” either. Many women arent cut out to be arm-candy or stay-at-home mothers. For all of the advancements this country has made in women’s lib. It’s men that like that who make us take 10 steps back after having taken 2 forward.
Double standards really piss me off.
Tonight was a first for me, it was the first time someone decided to be a dick and park so close to my car that there wasnt ANY hope of getting my car door open. Then to make matters worse, it was on both sides. I had to go hunt down the owners of the cars and threaten to ruin their pretty, pretty paint jobs if they didnt move. One of them actually told me to go do something pretty disgusting to a pineapple (of all things)…
So clearly only one of them was nice enough to move their damn SUV out of the COMPACT space he took. I still had to crawl across the passenger seat to get to the driver’s side. Luckily there wasnt a car infront of me so I was able to just drive forward otherwise I (still) would have been stuck. The douche bag that parked next to my driver’s side did it so that his rear view mirror was not even an inch behind mine. THAT’S how close he was to my car, how can anyone even manage to get that close? I dont think they teach that in driver’s school…if they did, I must have missed that particular day.
Katy likes (to)…
- catch escaped hampsters and force them to run in mazes.
- crumple up reading materials, which is why she gets mad when she is not able to do so.
- climb a couple of mountains before an early breakfast, ski constantly for eight hours, then finish off with a fifteen mile walk.
- poop in her pants.
- run around naked without a stitch.
- find out where certain animals live and glue elephants onto Antarctica and penguins onto Africa, and etc.
- sing The Song That Never Ends in the car for the duration of the extremely long roadtrip.
- big butts.
This quote will satisfy where all others fall short.(via jeralyndwile)
My brother has decided to pursue his Ph.D. after just finishing his Masters program at ASU. Also, by “just” I mean his last class was yesterday and his graduation ceremony is in July. I am SO proud of him…all his life he’s been told that he wont ever amount to anything simply because he’s deaf. He’s broken every limitation people have set on him and keeps on going. I cant believe the things he’s accomplished, he almost makes me feel inadequate (haha). Not really though, he’s never been anything but supportive of me and my decisions. He’s also been my rock through some pretty hard times… I couldnt be more proud of him whether or not he actually goes through with getting his Ph.D.
but if he does I’ll get to say, “Whats up doc?” Hah!
Sweet Date Night Surprises
Tired of the same old dates of dinner and a movie? Spice up your love life with these hot date ideas—they’re romantic, exciting, and most of them won’t break the bank. Grab your guy and have fun!
Pack a picnic, jump in the car and just drive wherever the road leads. When the moment is right, hop out, unpack your spread, and relax. You can also stop at quaint stores, roadside grills, farmstands, and cute country boutiques. Just be sure to bring a map, so you can get back home safely.
Challenge your guy to a little one-on-one action—on the court, field, or green. Even if you aren’t the best athlete in the world, just being a good sport will earn you major points. Plus, it’s a great way to let him impress you with his athletic prowess.
Heat It Up
They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. So get cooking…together, of course. Whip up some fun at a cooking class or just try your luck with a recipe in the kitchen. No matter how you slice it, you’ll have the right ingredients for romance.
Get the Goods
Discover one-of-a-kind, rare finds at a local flea market. You can poke around and pick up great deals and steals—and you’ll have a hilarious time making up stories about old relics. Compare haggling skills and go home with a special memento that you pick out together.
Take a Hike
The word “hike” may conjure up visions of excruciatingly steep mountains followed by a week of sore legs, but there’s no reason to be intimidated. A good hike is also just a glorified walk in the woods, which can be beautiful and exhilarating to do together.
Lend a Hand
Volunteer your time to help others for a truly rewarding activity together. Do a bit of research to find out if your local soup kitchen or food bank needs any extra hands on weekends, or see if you can pay a visit the elderly. You’ll feel great about yourselves, and the memorable experience will bring you closer together.
Invite your guy over for a night of friendly competition. Challenge him old-school style with a classic board or card game, or take it techie with the latest video games. No matter what you play, heat up the stakes by placing romantic bets.
If you can’t beat him, join him. Surprise your man with tickets to see his favorite team in action. Whether it’s football, baseball, basketball, or hockey, the two of you are sure to have a ball getting pumped up and cheering for his team. He’ll definitely appreciate your interest—and you just might have a fabulous time.
Go out on the town together, but put a unique twist on the evening by pretending not to know one another. Then flirt like strangers and “meet” each other all over again. You’re sure to spark a new fire in your romance.
Play Dress Up
All dressed up with nowhere to go? Exactly! Pick a night to wear your hottest little black dress and get your guy to don his best duds. Then either stay home and enjoy a decadent dinner or hit the town in style.
Bust a Move
Lace up your dancing shoes and cha-cha, two-step or rumba the night away. If you have two left feet, sign up for a few dancing lessons to get in the swing of it. And if you can’t convince your honey to shake his groove thing, compromise by telling him you’ll go to the next ball game with him. Then hit the dance floor and show off your best moves.
Show him how much you love him in the words of a song—that you belt out karaoke-style. Hit up a karaoke bar and serenade each other, or make beautiful music together with a duet. You’ll hit some new notes in your relationship and make your romance go pop.
I have been disgustingly absent the past few days. I’m sorry, please dont drink the haterade…
“Women who insist that facial hair is unpleasant say the same about period sex, about cum, about public gropings and lingering, primal scents. I have no time for those who deny themselves all the heady little details of passion. I’d sooner hire a surgeon who is afraid of blood than entertain a mate who didn’t delight in the sticky, brutish aspects of fornication.”
Agreed. And I have no time for squeamish men with double standards. You don’t like menstrual blood, but you want to cum on my face? I don’t think so.
Thank you! I totally agree as well.
definately agreed. I hate double standards and hypocrites.
Lurex All In One Harem. An interesting, comfortable avenue to explore my somewhat exotic side. Especially since it going to be hotter than the pits of hell in a day or two.
One of my biggest fears is building a life with the guy who says “we” until you leave the room, and then starts using “I.”
(via by beenthinking)
I think every girl is afraid of that, I know I am.
Untraceable is the most fucked up movie ev-ar. What kind of deranged person wrote this movie?
“Rated R for grisly violence and torture.” Um, that’s an understatement.
I will not be able to sleep tonight.
I thought Saw (1-4) was bad, but seriously, I didnt sleep for a WEEK after I saw this movie. I can usually handle scary movies, but geeze…there’s “scary movies” and then there’s “going way too far”. They went way too far with that movie.
none of this was at all what I expected.
yay for 21st birthdays! 6 hours and 29 minutes, yah…stoked.
