I can check my mail again. This makes me happy.
I have been cajoled into seeing a movie with my mom and my sister.
They are picking the movie.
This does not make me happy.

I'm good at sitting through other people's strange choices and their affinities for big budget crap.
But I think Tales of the YaYa Sisterhood just might snap me.

There's nothing inherently romantic, cute, or special about southern life.
No matter how many movies you make revolving around the theme, no matter how many suburban women decorate their homes in pseduo "country" style... no matter how many rag rolled rugs appear in kitchens over populated with wooden cut out chickens doing cutesy things... southern life will never *ever* be a cute or quaint thing.

Ya Ya!
Perhaps at the end of the movie ou, your sister and your mom and hold hands, raise your arms, and shout Ya Ya! Now that's bonding.

Are you from the south?

Re: Ya Ya!
depends on your definition of "the south"
Richmond, VA was the capital of the confederacy. I was born and raised south of that, in virginia beach, which is butted right up against the north carolina border.

As far the "deep south" of the YaYa sisterhood... I've been mercifully free of experiences of Georgia, Missisipi and Alabama, though I was raised by a man who spent his formative years in Arkansas and Louisiana and I spent 3 months living in Shreveport, LA when I was about 10 years old.

Quaint is where you find it, I guess.
