When I’m feeling a bit down, sometimes I can cheer up by watching films in which the protagonist is much worse straits than I am.

Here are two women I have determined NEVER to be:  Bridget Jones (Bridget Jones’ Diary), and Nora Wilder (Broken English).  Depressed, narcotic, and desperate.  And lame.  Why didn’t Nora go to Paris on a wild adventure with that French dude while she had the chance?

      @Dionne: I kind of liked the first of the series, but just liked. That’s all. I still don’t want to be Bridget, though. 🙂

      @Gabrielle: Watch ’em if you want to find out what some single women turn into. Broken English is an indie film, so I don’t know how easy it would be to find.

  3. Indeed, these characters are glorified by Hollywood. Especially the women from Sex and the City. I mean, really, they are manic depressives, psycho, and have no standards for themselves. Are they really the characters we want to be? I don’t, at least.

    I vowed to myself not to watch any more ‘Bridget’ type movies. It doesn’t cheer me up to watch a girl bumble around like that & sell her love so cheaply, with so little self-respect. It must be really hard to be a single young woman nowadays. I admire you gals for your standards & faith in Jesus.

    my contribution in cheering you up? prayers for utter and complete destruction. hehehe. oh and buying you stock in coconut bliss ice cream + cab. oh and learn the words to beyonce’s “irreplaceable.” when all else fails, there’s nothing like remembering you have the power to say, “to the left, to the left.” love you sabrina fair!
