The Sky is Falling



Not everywhere. Or at least I don't think so. Just above my front door. Actually it's the permastone. I was speaking with my neighbor today and she pointed it out. Now I don't know whether to live dangerously and let it fall randomly, a little at a time or to go out and poke at it. Can't you just imagine the entire front of my house crumbling around me? Perhaps I should have the man who lives on the other side of my neighbor move his new truck first.

Ever watch Absolutely Fabulous? It's one of those shows that you either love or hate. You either get it and think it's hysterical or you don't and then the parts I laugh at make little sense. My ex hated it. He had no understanding whatsoever. There's one character, Bubble, who is portrayed as the absolute dumbest bimbo ever. Any episode with Bubble made him furious. The writers always had her ask some question that was so incredibly simple and stupid it came off as bizaree. My ex's problem was that he tended to take them seriously and ponder them. As soon as I chuckled he'd turn bright red and start yelling. In all the years he was here he never once bothered to sit down and attempt to watch the show with me so he could then understand why I thought it was so funny.

BBC America is having an AbFab marathon today in honor of Mother's Day. If you've ever seen an episode you'll know why just hearing this advertised got me started laughing today. I've seen the entire series I can't tell you how many times but I have it on in the background anyway. I'm finishing up my edits and am feeling a bit braindead so it'll be a good subliminal influence. Hm nope, that statement doesn't make any sense to me either but it sounds good so I'm sticking to it.

I'm a huge fan of BBC comedy. Much more intellegent humor than we have going on in the states. My favorite... can't think of the name, has Hiacynth in it... trashy sisters on the other side of the track and H always wants the neighbors to think they are "somebodies". LOVE that show.

I have the entire AbFab series on DVD. I love them. Patsy and Eddy crack me up. I too love Bubble. I love the way the tone of her voice drops when she is really confused.

What a great show.

I think I like the New Year's episode when Bubble's trying to understand how it works best.
