SATC: Sexy? Nope! But a Winning Personality? Hells Yeah!

The second in the series of six posts based on quotes for the always entertaining Sex and The City.

Miranda: Smart, yes, sometimes cute, but never sexy. Sexy is the thing I try to get them to see me as after I win them over with my personality.

Oh Miranda, your sarcastic wit, your ability to see that even the fullest glass is half full, kept me in stitches throughout the series. As the series went you, the writers softened you up a bit and then gave you a baby and a husband!

I have always jokes that I am a dork, a big dork. Willing to make fun of myself in the hopes that someone will laugh. Add in the klutz factor and I could be in a sitcom. I also have the humor of an adolescent boy so to be sexy for me would be well, wrong.

I have always been the friend, pat me on the head kind of girl. I remember a guy saying to be many years ago, be sexy. I think I did the snort/laugh combo because that is so not me. I wish I could be that girl that gets dressed up in the perfect skinny jeans, white oxford and killer heels and sashay my way through the room. In reality, I will trip over nothing and knock a glass of red wine down the front of my shirt.

I think my goofy personality is what kills that sexy vibe that might be deep down in me. I remember wearing this really nice black dress (and I have it in red too) that is simple, great to wear in the office and for those that do cocktails after work, dress it up for that. I walked into a coworker’s office a few years ago with it on and she was laughing and saying va va voom! I felt like I was playing dress up in the dress but apparently several people loved that one on me. But while the dress may say va va voom, I am thinking “crap! I hope I don’t fall down or forget to check if it gets tucked into my Spanx.”

So I will go with the personality and hope that at some point I can convey the sexy vibe. Although at the moment I think I am dwindling down on my favorite red lipstick from Clinique (which is no longer made, um, thanks for that) and to me, nothing says sexy like a pouty mouth in Cherry Cola lipstick. Of course I will need to make sure I didn’t rub it on my teeth. . .


What you see is what you get; I am a Nashville girl who is single, again. I use the blog to get my inner, tortured, wanna be writer angst out. One day I just may write a book. I have been stumbling through life for 43 years now, I love to cook, read and figure out more embarrassing ways I can either harm myself (thank you hula hoop of 2010 and the case of the thrown back) or just prove how inept I am at household chores and dieting. The people you read about on here are real but most have had their names changed to protect the innocent and not so innocent. And I really should make a list of them so I can remember! Enjoy, read, mock, laugh and comment, it really isn't difficult. Plus, I would prefer reading comments from real people as opposed to the weird spam comments I keep getting. Plus, I will always find the hardest path to follow and take that one, why would anyone want to take the easy way?!

  1. Check eBay or for your Cherry Cola Lipstick! Sometimes you can find discontinued colors on those two sites. 🙂

    1. Thanks Heather! I did check, there is one tube available for a crazy amount but other than that I haven’t had much luck. So I am rocking the sad panda face. I may have to start a write in campaign to Clinique because I love this color!
