Carrie Bradshaw Learns Email and IM on Sex and the City

Carrie Bradshaw Learns to Email and IM . . . Slowly

My heart beats a little faster every day as we near May 30, the day the Sex and the City movie comes out. To that end, I've been posting the geekiest SATC clips to prepare, including everything from the motherboard failure to Carrie's Googling misadventures!

Our fearless and fiercely intelligent women proved they can tackle anything in the show, especially technology — but even a Mac girl like Carrie Bradshaw was mystified from time to time when she dove into a new geeky task. It's crazy to see now, but Carrie was pretty freaked out by email and IM when she first got it (even though this was in 2001!). Watch her ridiculous reaction to Aidan coming online. . .

Too funny! Yeah, I feel like 2001 was a little late for an urban gal to be learning about IM, but any old portrayal of IM/email cracks me up.

I can remember a time when I was like this. My friend finally showed me how to IM when I was a soph/junior in high school. So like 1998/99. Hah, that's funny now.
