I have to admit that I am a huge “Sex and the City” fan. I never watched it when it was on HBO as I didn’t have HBO but my daughter would watch it at friends’ homes. We would rent the season’s DVDs and watch an entire season at a time. I still watch the reruns on TBS at night.
Of course, I was thrilled when I found out that the original cast had signed on to create a feature film. I wasn’t sure, if there were major upheavals in the cast, I could watch it. Instead, I have been keeping a countdown on when the release date is and making plans to go see the movie.
The other day I was at Sam’s Club. I routinely spend about $20 in May or June at Sam’s buying summer paperbacks to read. I usually bookcross these when I am done reading them or pass them on to my kids. I was looking over the selections that were in stock – nothing great for the summer reads yet – and, lo and behold, I saw Candace Bushnell’s Sex and the City. I am normally a big read the book first fan. I had never read the book so in the cart, with the four cases of water, it went.
It was really difficult reading the book. I could picture the episodes of the television series that the book is talking about as I read. The problem is that the characters are different. I managed to get through it but it took a lot more concentration than I wanted to put into reading it.
I am still anxiously awaiting the end of the month and the full-length feature film. I have seen trailers and teasers and will be in line the first night.
