Weekend Round Up

What's Jack up to? Well he's gotten into something (maybe it's all the tissue?) so he's feeling a little low and quiet today. Let's see how long it lasts. Maybe until 10:00? I hope he's back to his old self soon.

Happy Monday and Welcome June!

It's my birthday month! The month I love and loathe the most. I put way too much pressure on June. I guess too much pressure on myself in June. But we'll save that for another post, another day...

So it’s back to the grind. I had a pretty decent weekend. It started really strong. I could not resist going to see Sex And The City on Friday night even though I'm on a writing deadline the darn movie was calling me and apparently every other woman in Westchester county, and from the strong box office, the country. It was packed!

But, I had a ball! It was an estrogen fest in that theater with woman ranging from 20-60 all smiling and happily decked out in their best accessories at our local theater. The thought of all the stressed men ordering pizza with children pulling at their pants legs just made me smile.
It was a gab-fest in the theater until the lights went down and the first familiar tunes of the SATC theme started then there was actual applause. Fancy that! I’m telling you it was like we were all hungry for a sweeter simpler time, a time when we all had hope, better abs and higher breasts!

To me, despite what the New York Times says, the movie did not disappoint. Sure it could have been better in spots but so what. So could anything. I had a a blast! Loved it!

See it with friends. See it with Fans. See it with Fashionistas!
Have fun. Don’t take it too seriously. It’s not about that. It’s about, friends, family and LOVE!

The Fashions were fab-u-lous. I could not stop grinning during a certain fashion sequence. Sigh. What a geek I am! I also just loved the use of white and bright color. Sort of a pop art splash/clash thing going on.

Fans of the show will be glad to know that all the old faves are back and the characters are true to form. I walked away loving Charlotte in this movie. There were some laugh out loud scenes with her.

I can’t wait for it to come on video so I can go over the fashions again and again. Just delicious. Yum!

Then on Saturday I was up bright and early of our church’s annual AIDS walk-a-thon. Thank goodness we didn’t get rained out. We had a nice crowd for a little walk though Mount Vernon. Thanks to our kindly police escorts and to the drivers that we annoyed while holding up traffic. It was for a very important cause. It’s everyone’s issue. Thanks so all my friends for their pledges of support!

Oh, and for you writers and folks of faith and even those of just a little hope check out this blog that writer, Trish Ryan has put up called forty days of faith.

Then it was all writing all the time and still is. I’m way into my new proposal and have to be all about that. Shh... must keep it under wraps. I will say this though. It’s H-O-T!

So... how was your weekend?

June, it is like whip-lash. The end of school, the "birthday" - the beginning of summer and then new flicks to see with friends to remind us what truly is most important! Friends, Love and well family - we know that they will always love us. Note, I said nothing about the pressures of any deadline.
You can do it, and that is what friends are for - to be there, to route for, to cheer for!
I enjoyed the movie and the way they were always there for one another! (Well dressed, I might add!)

Kristen Painter said...

I guess I need to organize some chicas and go see this. Sounds like a fun thing to do with my friend who's visiting! (See my blog for more info. lol)

Kwana said...

Thanks for the support pve and for escaping and seeing SATC with me. Such great fun. Now back to the joy of June!

Yes, Kristen see it with your friend. Have a ball!

Aww man, I tried to post earlier, but it wouldn't let me. Now I have to remember what I wrote! :-)

I think I said something like, "I'm glad you enjoyed SATC and that I didn't see it. I've never been a huge fan of the show since I only recently saw the very first season. My hubby actually bought me the DVD box set, so maybe one day I'll catch up and watch them all. Then eventually I'll see the movie - it will probably be on cable by then!! LOL!"

My weekend was great! The weather yesterday was to die-for!! Plus on Friday, my husband and I went to see the horror movie, "The Strangers." It was ok, but not great. I just love scary movies!!

I thought the movie was fabulous. I laughed. I cried. I didn't want it to end.

Fashion, friends, and forgiveness. I'm ready to see it again.

Morgan said...

I went to the movie with some of my best gal pals as well as my best gay pal and we had a GREAT time. We had to drag ourselves out of the theatre because we were emotionally wrung out. We laughed, we cried...we had a fabulous evening.

Fifi Flowers said...

Happy Birthday month!
LOVED LOVED LOVED the movie! I don't care what the critics or media say... I will be buying it and having a SATC dvd cosmo girls only party! said...

oh i read that NYT article the night before i saw it too and i thought, did a man write this who totally didn't get it? (was it a man?) anyway it was nostalgic and fun to see the ladies again! did you get dressed up like i did?

Eileen said...

I never listen to the critics. Loved it. I could have written the script it was all what I expected. I had to see it immediately becuase you know how I hate spoilers. One of my friends booked me 3 months ago. Definately a chick flick but I think I will get the hubby to watch on DVD.

Kwana said...

Thanks Fifi and Morgan. It was so much fun.

Guess what mommytherobot? It was NOT a man that wrote the Times review. I thought so at first too. I dressed comfortably but did accessorize.

Wasn't it so much fun Eileen? With friends is the only way.

N said...

Kwana, thanks for the review! I think I shall feel a bit deprived not seeing the perhaps I should go after all.

And when exactly is that 29th birthday happening anyhow, hmmm?

PBW said...

I never watched Sex & the City, but after reading your review I downloaded Season 1 on iTunes.

Happy B-day month and good luck with your writing deadline!!!!

Kwana said...

Hi N. Yes you should see it. It's totally fun.
The B-day is actually 39. And it's June 11th.

Hi pbw. Enjoy season 1. Let me know if you're as hooked as I was. Thanks for the luck. I need it.
