Good Morning midears! Picture posts will now be shown on Wednesdays – so scribble that down in your diaries, and I hope you enjoy.
I’m still getting my life together and getting settled, so sorry for the infrequent posts. Here’s a picture post to quench your procrastination thirst.
Once I get back into my groove, i hopefully should start putting out each post regularly – one type fo post per day. So possibly link lists on Mondays, picture passions on Wednesdays and reviews on Fridays. What do you think? I’d love to hear your comments.
But for now, this post will be all rebellious 😉
Check your calendars ladies and gents, what is it?
The 10th you say?
No, more important than that:
The Procrastination Station is 6 months old!
Yep, it certainly doesn’t feel like this blog was started six short months ago. It started off as a place for me to keep all the cool stuff I find on the ‘net (because god knows I spend too much time there) , and soon grew into something i love sharing with you all in the hopes of entertaining you. I hope that over the months it improved for you guys as well as I added new features, got organised, and took it more ‘seriously’.
Nothing would make me happier then to know that you guys enjoy your little slice of procrastination.
So happy half-birthday, I hope to keep doing this for years to come.
To work is human,
To procrastinate: divine.
After all, even God took a rest on the 7th day…
Name: Sex and the City 2
Genre: Chick flick / comedy-drama
DT’s Rating: 8/10
Ladies and Gentlemen, I have a confession to make.
I…….am a girl.
Yeah, no big surprise, the internet’s full of ’em don’tcha know, but nevertheless I usually don’t class myself as a girly girl. I usually cringe at chick-flicks and some rom-coms (though mainly those roms without the coms. Talk about soul destroying boredom), and avoid the soppyness. I like my action movies and action-fantasies, and not only for perving over Hugh Jackman. But there’s something so endearingly feminine about sex in the city, without being boring, which seems to just be a joy to me. It’s pure and utter escapism. And it always makes me smile. Darned if I’m going to apologise for that 😉
Escapism is the name of the game with this movie. Unfortunately I missed the first one, but the sequel easily picks up anew. The girls are older and more settled down. Miranda and Charlotte are mothers and feeling the strain, Carrie is in her marriage with ‘Mr.Big’ going through a rough monotonous patch, and sexy Samantha is facing the horrors of the approaching menopause. It’s completely different to the singleton life of the series, and yet the new problems they face bring a new vitality (and in the motherhood case, a new and rather touching critical honesty) to the women’s lives, and the humour is still as sharp and hilarious as ever.
It’s always been a hobby of me and my mates to completely take the piss out of Carrie’s outfits, and boy she does not disappoint. Some (ok, most) are ridiculous – look out for the hat (oh Jesus the hat!) and had us giggling. The rampant fashion materialism is always well offset by her fashion faceplants. The Sex and the City escapism takes on a new level as we travel around the exotic and indulgent location of Abu-Dhabi too for their misadventures, which breathes new life and is a feast for the eyes.
All in all the film was funny, girly, at times silly, with touching moments and some real life messages in there too.
If you love the series you’ll adore this. And it’s a perfect film to curl up to with popcorn and a glass of wine after a crappy day when it comes out on DVD.
Ah the wonders of pictures. I hope you enjoy this batch of picture-y goodness!
