Pills and booze are ready sweetie!!! Can't wait to see you in the show!!!! And my life is good for a while, I have the new series to look forward to!!! Big Grin
After a slow start, the new episode was off and flying once they actually hit NY. Loved Serge's boyfriend AND the Whoopi gay marriage bit lots - and good to see them in new situations with new jokes.

And it goes without saying that it was thrilling to see Debbie, glammie and Jackie Bigalow, even if it was brief, AND to hear Deb's "Wheels of Fire" as well as the all-Blondie soundtrack..Even "Presence, Dear", my all time favorite!!

And I adored Jennifer actually daring to make a 9/11 joke in the beginning...Especially after sharing that weird-but-magical night with her in October 2001 NY...

Fabulous, sweetie!
I am suprised no one has mentioned the new season yet. It is hysterical - they are right back on track again. Funny, sharp and acerbic writing - the thing Ms. Saunders does best. Outlandish celebrity guest stars. I love "Titticaca Two-ways" getting a restraing order from Baby Spice or Patsy "working" in the shop, Jeremy (it's a lifestyle, a concept...
Can't wait to see Saffy's labour and new baby - because mixed-raced babies are the fashion accessories of the season, sweetie! They are the Chanel of babies.
