The Day that Finally Came

So, today, come 1:50, I'll be sitting (in between two very dear girlfriends) at a little Manhattan theater with a sneaked-in bottle of Caffeine Free Diet Coke and a bucket of popcorn the size of the Empire State Building, watching the long awaited Sex and the City movie. Yes, it's true: I'm a total (moved to New York 'cause I wanna be a writer) cliché, but I sweat this stuff.

I've watched every single episode--have watched on Christmas, my birthday; when I'm sad, happy, need to be writing, grading, working out; was watching, obliviously, on the morning of September 11; want, right now actually, not to be posting but instead to be sitting eating a Fudgsicle and watching some more.

Anyway, even though I already know the ending, I couldn't be happier. The thing is: Carrie has to marry Big. The entire show (if dissected from Episode 1 to infinitum for, say, "writing research") is a narrative arc of their love story. I'm glad I have pregnancy to blame, because I have a feeling it's going to be one of those weddings where I ball uncontrollably.

Okay, that's it. I'll try to spare you the popculture references from here on out...though I did hear that Jamie Lynn and Casey are expecting a girl. I bet when she grows up she'll wanna watch Sex and the City too!

But how, oh how can they get married if the preview shows that cell phone dropping to the floor in front of the skirt to Carrie's designer wedding dress and her leaving in a limo with a distressed look on her face? Is it possible?

Although, I'm definitely more in the Aiden boat anyway...
