What Would Carrie Do... part 10

In season 1 episode 9 called the Turtle and the Hare the girls are faced with the idea of settling for what you can get.  In Charlotte's case it's a sex toy called the Rabbit, in Samantha's it's a man called Turtle. And after Big tells Carrie he's never going to get married again she takes up Stanford's offer of marriage so that he can get money from his grandmother.

The question of the week is  "In a city of great expectations, is it time to settle for what you can get?"

I am going to totally forget the subplot of Charlotte and her .... toy.   And go with the story line of Samantha giving the Turtle a make over.   But you know I can't just sit back and do this straight up, I have to add my personal twist on it.

5 wrestlers I wish would get a make over.

  1. Both members of Generation Me.   I know you two boys are still teenagers (or at lest you look like you are to me)  but honey, that hair has got to go!  There is no excuse for having long greasy hair if you are over the age of 16.  And let's talk about those bandannas for a second shall we. Seriously, are we stuck in an early 90's music video or something?  I keep expecting to hear something by Tuff or Faster Pussycat when you two come to the ring. 
  2. Jeff Hardy.  Where do I start. The face paint loose it! I don't care if it's your trademark, it's stupid looking.  If you want to do the ICP thing, then do the ICP thing, but what you have got going on with that face paint just makes no sense. And the hair.  Pick a colour and stick with it!  Just for a month even. 
  3. Shanon Moore.   Another face paint issue that makes me want to take a large brush and scrape you face clean.  I really just don't understand why you lot all think that the face paint idea is a good one. 
  4. Undertaker.  Yeah, I'm switching companies for the last two.  Dude, you need to lay off the tanning supplies and cut the hair.  I know you're a cemented figure in the business, but you can switch up your look every so often.  And I remember back when you first started in the WWE how PALE you were.  Why is it everyone thinks they need to look like a burnt hot dog to be in the wrestling business?
  5. CM Punk.  Once again, I'm bitching about the hair.  The hair needs to go.  The beard needs to go. the whole Jesus Christ pose needs to go.  You're one of the most talented guys in that company and you're presenting yourself like a ball of crap.  Cut the hair, cut the hair, cut the hair.   Hopefully at the ppv this week you will have lost your Hair match and have shaved.

The episode of SATC  actually is a bit of a mixed one with fans.  When I talk to others about the idea of men and make overs,  so many say that they like a man who takes some effort in his looks.  It makes them want to put more effort in theirs. 
But at the same time, we want to be comfortable, and have a man who's comfortable in his own identity.   It's truly a no win situation.

I think it has to do with the fact that we do see the potential in a man and because we want to see that realized in him -himself; that we women nag so much.

I don't actually have my own question to cap this one off like I usually do.
