“One snap of my fingers and I can raise hemlines so high, the whole world’s your gynecologist.”–Patsy
I can’t believe I haven’t shared my obsession with Absolutely Fabulous yet in this forum. It’s like… what have I been TALKING about? My father (who shares my Ab Fab and also my Mystery Science Theater 3000 obsession) once called me from a business trip in Lancashire, England just so that I could hear the accent of the locals… because it’s just like Bubble‘s. I used to babysit for my neighbors at a much discounted rate simply because they had Comedy Central in the early 90s and I didn’t. On Saturday nights, the station used to play four eps of Ab Fab in a ROW. I used to aspire to be just like Patsy (minus the drug/alcohol habit, of course). Patsy is a fashion editor at a British magazine but never shows up and simply casts a glance at each month’s issue in between lounging around Eddy‘s house and shopping for “gorgeous things.” Plus, remember when she announces she’s feeling “peckish” and starts rooting around for “food things” and Eddy mentions that Patsy hasn’t eaten since 1974?
The show is ab fab, but the hair on the show, save for Patsy‘s (obv) is not. Eddy‘s hair is in desperado need of a deep condition (we’ll get to that in a later post) and Saff‘s is crying OUT for a good serum. To this day, when I watch reruns of the show, I want to leap INTO my TV and give Saff some Terax Gloss Finishing Serum ($16). This Vitamin E-infused concentrated silicone serum tames flyaways and give hair gorge shine without the weight. There’s no oil involved, so there’s less mess and easy application. Give it a whirl, but be sure to be “cool about it, babe.”
P.S. Dolls, tonight’s the end-all, be-all of my lifestyle. My evening plans include a treatment/blow-out at Ouidad, the hotly-anticipated LOST two-hour season finale, and a midnight screening of the SATC movie. Can you even? (I can’t.)

I LOVED that show and Patsy was so f-ing funny. Everything about it was genius. The Comedy Central back to back eps were the best.
Thanks for bringing me back! : )
