My college junior daughter stopped by after driving for 400 miles to pick up some summer style clothes for her trip to Florida for Spring Break. I always ask her what the “break” is from? 24 hours of fun at college? Give me a BREAK!
But she keeps me up to date on many things. Like tonight. My wife and I are very involved with CDs of Sex and the City. We started watching them about two weeks ago. They are borrowed from our library, a truly marvelous place to get to know if you have not done so already.
We’re watching the first episode tonight after first watching some of Season 6 last week. So we got to see how Carrie first met Big whom I recognized from his other TV show, Law and Order. Of course, I had no idea that Sex and the City is over, kaput and that’s a sorry thing because the show is/was exquisitely written and acted. A wonderful experience you seldom get to see on TV except for House making fun of his patients. My daughter gave me that bad news that the show is gone forever.
The thing is that the older I get the more emotional I get. When I see a very good piece of writing performed, or some notable music played or just something naturally beautiful like a new snow covering up our front yard, I get teary eyed. This is new for me. I was not that way 10 years ago, maybe 5. I find myself getting involved with the characters in this TV show. Shouldn’t happen but it is.
So I am hoping, praying that Carrie finds happiness with Big and maybe even gets married. That is how I would write the series based on what I’ve seen. Two good people deserve happiness and each other and I have a hunch they will get that exactly.
We’ve never seen The Sopranos. I get the feeling we may be missing something comparably wonderful. So, when we finsish up with SATC I think I’ll borrow some Soprano action. I’d love to see what all the hullabaloo is about that Gondalfino (sp) guy. I won’t take the time to Google the spelling, nope.
I am so out of the loop. I received a note from one of my 298 MySpace “friends” that I never even exchanged emails with before. At first I thought is was some crazed woman asking me out for a very weird date. The letter talked about a speed dating event in Dallas next week. Sounds interesting, but I will need to decline. Speed dating? My wife might take offense. So, here is the letter. Enjoy!

Somehow the speed dating idea seems like a science fiction story to me. Sex in the City is so much more real.
