Absolutely Fabulous

Oh, how I wish I had BBC America on my cable line-up. This Sunday marks the return of Pats and Eddy in the first of a three-part "Absolutely Fabulous" 20th anniversary special.

I loved the irreverent humor and over-the-top excess of this show when it ran in the 1990s. "Ab Fab" is a scream, but it's not for everyone. You either like it or you don't. If you don't, I doubt you and I would get a long. (Just kidding. But seriously, your sense of humor needs to be a little bawdy and twisted to like this show. And be my friend. Just sayin'.)

What's on tap this weekend, friends? Any big plans? I have tickets to see my Cats play ball in Lexington, so I'm looking forward to that. Then, on Sunday, Tebow's Broncos take on Hubby's Steelers in a wild card game. And best of all, it's 62 degrees and sunny in January. I won't question it if it's global warming. I'll just embrace it for now.

You know that this happens to be my ultimate favorite!! Watched it religiously when it actually aired and have all of it on DVD to watch whenever the mood strikes me (which is almost always!) took an online quiz recently that pegged me as 'Absolutely Patsy'(LOL!), I will find the link and email to you!!

I Love Ab Fab and my sisters and I try and recreate whenever we can, but of course cannot capture the magic of Patty. (Just looked to the side and saw my blog listed - Thank you so much! that's one thing that has not been updated on my blog since I started - blogloving - and I must update!)

I wonder if it will be online...I will have to poke about next week! I saw some previews and it looks just as hilarious as it was all those years ago!

This weekend I am a 'single mom' so I will be home all weekend cooking, packing Christmas trees etc etc. Such an exciting time!

LOVED Ab Fab. I loved how Saffron was completely disgusted and embarrased at all times w/ them and just wanted to get on w/ her studies. I didn't know about the anni - thank you! This weekend I'm trying to watch Downton Abbey on-line before Season 2 starts next week. Lots to watch!

I adore AbFab. So does my son. I can't wait for the reunion.
