The Story of Not

Ever find yourself wondering why I got to be NotMiranda or how No Sex & the City (Not site) got together? Well, to be a bit self indulgent and because there have been requests (don't laugh!), I thought we'd do the flashback episode where the audience finds out interesting facts about the characters lives.

I'll refrain from the "long, long ago in a kingdom far away" since we're all really more Fresh Prince "now this is the story all about how my life got flipped,
turned upside down". Imagine four friends hovering over shared milkshakes and fries at a local diner late one evening and you can pretty much picture yourself there when the Not site was born. I had been thinking about the fact that I wasn't getting any and was talking to the girls about a blog about not having a man, lack of dating, etc. Conversation flowed and before you know it an idea was born. Four girls of varying ages who all work too hard and have found when we do have time to play it's not all it's cracked up to be.

Figuring out "who" we were didn't prove to be all that difficult. Let's face it, I got NotMiranda because I'm more career driven, more sarcastic and biting, would probably be the one to get accidentally knocked up for pity sex, and have red hair on most days. NotSamantha was also easy (pun intended). From dabbling in bondage to her growing sex toy treasure chest, NotSam could have only been one person. NotCarrie and NotCharlotte weren't as blatantly obvious. If we were basing all decisions on hair color, then we'd have to flip the two. In the end, NotCharlotte took on her persona because it just felt right. She would have the most trouble using cunt in a sentence, is probably going to be the first to get married, and I swear she has the Charlotte pout down pat! NotCarrie wasn't solely by process of elimination. She's just the right amount of saucy, has the hair that transitions from curly to straight, and was likely to post the most frequently ; )

Just an overview, but I do believe we're willing to entertain questions in the comment section.

i think that is something all us girls do...pick out which SATC character we would be. yesterday i felt like charlotte, because i was being all idealistic and optomistic. great idea to turn it into a site with four contributors, stroke of genius. :)

NotCharlotte said...

I used to not like being NotCharlotte, but the more I think about it, the more I realize I'm quite a bit like her...

Vixen said...

So how come you name the guys NotEngineer and stuff like that. Why not just call them Engineer?

Donna said...

Oh, I love it. Seriously, you guys are great. And I'm glad you're not up for anal rimming, because it's SO wrong... lol

Lindsey said...

LOL. Perfect story. You guys know I love your blog!

NotSamantha said...

I can't believe that was so long ago! As for me being NotSamantha, that's it right on the head...for example right now i'm on vacation with seven other women at a house in the wild, where porn will be watched, cigs smoked, and men....well we've pretty much decided that in the space of this week, they're pretty much unnecessary as long as electronic aid is close at hand

NotSamantha said...

Vixen, the guys are named who they are based on what we know about them, at least they are for me. For example, NotSkippy is exactly like Skippy. The other names are more inspired...
