    *** Official SEX AND THE CITY Discussion Thread

    I really enjoyed the film and didn't really notice the length. The audience I saw it with in Boston applauded. I think there was a lot of pent up demand for more from these characters. I loved Charlotte's moments in this film, particularly Otherwise a really enjoyable evening at the...

    2007 MTV VMAs

    Wow.....Britney Spears. Holy cow, that was bad. I actually like the new track, Gimme More, and have always liked Brit, but this was unwatchable. She was either distracted, uninterested, nervous or drunk. She was totally detached from the performance, made no effort to make her lip-syncing...

    How do you start a really good fire in the fireplace with real wood?

    This is my first place with a fireplace and I can't seem to get good fires going unless I use those fake starter logs. I really want to use real wood. I know the drier the wood the better, and I need to get a good wood delivery service. But is there anything else I can do? Thanks in advance.

    Where to Buy Men's Business Bags?

    I need a new bag for work, something leather, sleak, not to be confused with the traditional briefcase that my father carries or the messenger bag that our bike messenger carries. There are lots of nice LV or Ferragamo bags, but I don't want to spend $1200 just for a bag! Has anyone found a...

    Diet Coke with Splenda

    Tried it this week and was quite pleased. Sweeter than regular Diet Coke, not as sickeningly sweet as Pepsi. Since I only drink diet soda (if I drink any soda at all) I like having a good variety from which to choose. Anyone else try it?

    Ellen DeGeneres & Portia de Rossi a couple????

    IMDB story today says these two are a couple now. How did I not know that Portia de Rossi was a lesbian??? Is this well known? For better or worse, the sexual orientation of celebs usually gets alot of ink. Makes me think I would have heard of this before. Well, anyway, good luck to both of them!

    Can someone catch me up on all the Star Jones jokes I don't get???

    So her weddding is all over the news, which seems a little silly. I keep hearing gay jokes about her new husband. What did I miss? Is he gay and it's just an open "secret" like the Liza/David Gest thing? Am I out of the loop?
