Should a time traveller choose to visit us in 2003, she might happen upon a group of university gals gathering for a weekly Sex and the City watching party. And though most attendees would sigh over the clothes, the lifestyle, the cupcakes, one watcher invariably would throw her hands up in angst, and grumble: But Carrie Bradshaw
has ONE weekly newspaper column, and an annoying one at that... how are we supposed to believe she paid for all those Manolos?
Enter The Frenemy. The Brooklyn-based blogger went a few steps beyond our resentment and crunched the Carrie numbers. The conclusion of her 'Carrie Bradshaw Math
'? Carrie Bradshaw, you gotta be tripping balls to have us believe that you can sustain yourself on that one stupid-ass column. You lying b***h!
See, Frenemy here took into account Carries prospective income, rent, taxes, cab fares, shoe expenditure, restaurant checks and bar tabs (those Manhattans alone would make our Council Tax payments look easy). Surprise, surprise: Carrie couldnt really live that way. Shes $3,000,000,000,000 in debt. Does Shoegal have an eBay account?
