For those of you who don't know, SATC only stands for ...
Sex & The City.
Yes, as the movie has its world premiere, of course I have to make a mention of it. I love Sex and the City, it's a fact. I have the complete box collection (dvd) and almost the complete video collection. No, I'm not bragging, just stating another fact, and sorry, I don't intend to part with any of the videos or dvds, even for the shortest time.
It's so fitting (for me) that the world premiere of the movie was held in London. Strange though that they didn't choose to premiere it in the City, the fifth character of the show, but hey, that's SATC for you, they know what's right before you do. SATC signifies my life in London. It started in 1998 when I arrived in London, and ended in 2004, a few weeks before I left London (obviously I did not plan my life around the serie, it's just a coincidence).
I don't remember the first episode I watched, I was generally too tired when it was on, used to half-watch it in our tiny flat in Kensington Olympia while Annika, Matilda and I would stuff ourselves with leftovers from Pizza Hut and Starbucks where we were working. About two years later, sometime early on in the new millenium, I bought season 2 (or was it three) and watched it back to back. From then on I was hooked.
As so many others, I have been longing for the movie to premiere, only to now find myself in Gh, without a cinema to go and watch it at. No worries, as true independent women, Dirty and I have given Dirty's boyf the task of finding us a copy of the movie for us to have our own premiere. The plan was to do it this weekend already, but I am realising I may have been a bit optimistic about how quickly the movie would find its way here, we may have to wait a few more weeks.
So instead, in true Swedish stylée, Dirty and I are going to ladda inför premiären (recharge, fuel oruselves for the premiere) by selecting our favourite episodes and watching them over a glass of wine and some scrumptious nibblies this Friday. Will aim to keep you posted on how our SATC evening turned out...
