Thoughts Brought On by SATC

I've been having lots of marathons lately. A few of the marathons include Will Ferrell movies, Arrested Development and 30 Rock. The other day I realized it had been forever since I watched Sex and the City. I decided that I would bring it along with me while I'm house/dog-sitting. The thing about Sex and the City is that it always gets me thinking. Usually, my thoughts are fleeting, but the post I made earlier reminded me of it. I started writing about my preference for numbers ending in 5 or 0 with the exception of 69. Needless to say, that made me think of this:

While going through season 6, Carrie makes a point in her column which is a variation of what I have been saying for quite some time. The Russian (who we hate, by the way) is reading his friends an excerpt from Carrie's column, "It is my opinion that the last time anyone enjoyed the 69 position was in 1969." I've been saying a variation of that for quite some time.

Mind you, everything I'm saying here is pure conjecture (don't worry, Amy Jo)...but here goes. Here's my problem with the idea of that position: Nobody is bringing their A-Game. Think about it: you got 2 people, both trying to do something, while something else is being done to them. It's gotta be hard to focus. Personally, in my outsider opinion, I'd rather not have my time wasted if you're just going to be distracted. Maybe I need to send out some sort of poll or survey so I can get people's honest opinions on the matter.
