Get Ready for the AbFab Movie

13 Jul

I’m already counting down to the release of the AbFab movie! Well, as much as I can, seeing as it hasn’t even started filming yet. But word on the street is the it will be out sometime next year and I can’t wait!

If you want to get caught up on all the fabulous, or if (gasp!) you haven’t seen it yet, I’ve got you covered. Things can get a tricky because the show went on and off a few times, and there were some one-off specials sprinkled between seasons. Also, because it’s British, they’re called “series” not “season”. So let’s look at how many episodes there actually are:

Series 1 – 6 episodes, November – December 1992

Series 2 – 6 episodes, January – March 1994

Series 3 – 6 episodes, March – May 1995

2 special episodes, November 1996

Series 4 – 6 episodes, August – October 2001

Special episode, December 2002

Series 5 – 8 episodes, October – December 2003

Special episode, December 2004

20th Anniversary Specials – 3 episodes, December 2011 – July 2012 (Sometimes called Series 6)

See what I mean? Disjointed. In total, there are 39 episodes that span 20 years. You can see a full list and breakdown on Wikipedia.

Now that you know what you’re looking for, where do you find it? Look at me getting all philosophical. I am so deep.

At any rate, you can watch 37 episodes streaming on Amazon. They’re missing both parts of “The Last Shout”, the two specials that aired in 1996 between series 3 and 4.

Netflix has series 1-5 (doesn’t look like they have any of the specials) available by DVD, if you’re the kind of person who still does that.

Hulu has 36 episodes available on Hulu Plus. They have an added special that’s like a recap/clip show, but none of the other four specials.

There are 37 episodes available on iTunes; they’re also missing both parts of “The Last Shout”.

And if you want absolutely all of it? Well you’re in luck because that’s what they named the complete box set. And you can get it at for $113.19.

But Anne, what if I don’t want to drop a hundred bucks? Well then I feel you. And you can buy the DVDs individually for less. I’m all about buying from eBay or the Amazon Marketplace, but make sure when you do you’re buying Region 1 DVDs. Since it’s a British show there are a lot of Region 2 DVDs for sale, and those won’t work in your American DVD player.

You can get everything except for series 4 and 5 on DVD with Amazon Prime for $67.10. For some reason 4 and 5 are harder to find and weirdly expensive. For all of them, I would suggest checking Amazon Marketplace for cheaper versions.

Series 1-3 – $23.62 with Prime

Series 4 – Starting at $4.47 in the Marketplace

Absolutely Special – $7.29 with Prime (these are the specials before and after series 4)

Series 5 – $59.90 with Prime, starting at $12.65 in the Marketplace

White Box – $19.72 with Prime (first special after series 5)

20th Anniversary Specials – $16.47 with Prime

And with all that said, you can also catch reruns on Logo TV and just DVR them. There’s really no wrong way to do this.

Restaurant Review: Two Senoritas in Mount Pleasant Texas

9 Jul

Okay, this is going to be one of the weirdest restaurant reviews I’ve ever written, and that’s saying something because everything I write is pretty weird. But today I’m bringing you a very special review of my favorite Mexican restaurant, which happens to be located in Mount Pleasant, Texas. Where is Mount Pleasant? Well, it’s about two to two and a half hours east of Dallas. Or thirty minutes west of Texarkana, if you’re the kind of person who knows where Texarkana is.

First, a little backstory. My mother is from Texas, and if you’ve ever known anyone from Texas you’ll understand why until I was about ten years old I told people I was half Irish and half Texan. All that to say, I like Tex-Mex. Cal-Mex is just fine, but Tex-Mex is my jam. And Two Senioritas has the best Tex-Mex.

One of their house specialties is green sauce. Usually when I say this, people will try to correct me. “Do you mean tomatillo?” No, I mean green sauce. See?

Green sauce is basically guacamole with sour cream. What’s not to love? My cousin French will tell you it’s gross, but don’t listen to him. He once had me eat cow intestines in Mexico, so he’s clearly not a reliable source. Green sauce is amazing, and it will make all of your dreams come true.

When you go to Two Senoritas, you’ll probably order something in a tortilla. And you should, because they make them right there. I don’t know what it is about a tortilla machine, but it’s mesmerizing. And I always have to fight the urge to snatch a few fresh off the line.

But really, no matter what you order it’s going to be great, and it’s going to come with more food than one person could possibly eat. Here are a few selections from our table, that’s a puffy taco (like a mini taco salad), a flauta plate, and some kind of salad type thing that my mom ordered. I don’t know exactly what it is, but she said it was delicious.

We happened to be there shortly after my birthday, so of course I had to tell them so we could celebrate! I got to wear a giant sombrero while everyone sang to me, and it was excellent. I do so love being the center of attention.

Now, I’m not going to say that Two Senoritas is worth the trip, because I’ve made that trip a number of times and there’s not much that’s worth that trip. It’s a real pain to get to Mount Pleasant. But if you happen to be in the area, you simply must go to Two Senoritas.

I Had a Magical 4th of July

7 Jul

I hope you all had a great 4th of July, and all of your pets have recovered. And me? I had a very magical 4th of July at Disneyland! I went with one of my very favorite LA families and we had so much fun.

It was such a fantastic day, and you know I couldn’t go to the park on a holiday without some special flair! I made feathered fascinators, and Jessica contributed some patriotic tutus.

If you’ve never done a VIP Tour at Disneyland, I highly recommend it. We didn’t have to wait in any lines, and our tour guide was fantastic. He knew exactly where to go, the best way to get us there, kept us on track, and made sure we got to see (almost) everything on our list. (We didn’t make it to Small World, but it just gives us a reason to go back.)

We had fantastic seats for the parade on Main Street and got to see all of our favorite characters and squeal like six year olds.

And yes, I got myself a Dole Whip. Hey, it was hot and it’s important to stay hydrated while you’re running between all those rides!

And then I photographed it for posterity.

So basically everyone wears tutus and takes pictures of junk food. That's normal.

I also got a kids drink at dinner, because it came with a light up Ariel clip. That’s a no brainer, right? And again, hydration is important. I hadn’t done rides at Disney in a long time, and I really forgot how much fun they are. Is there anything better than Space Mountain? Maybe California Screamin’.

And then we hustled over for fireworks, with more primo seats. Listen, it probably doesn’t look like we had great seats, but fireworks are hard to photograph with an iPhone. Just trust me on this. Best. Seats. Ever.

I want to extent a very special thank you to Jessica for letting me pretend to be part of her family, and our main man, our fantastic tour guide, Jorge. (This picture is at the end of the day, so you just have to trust that we’re really much more attractive than this.)

I swear, every time I go to Disney I immediately can’t wait to go back. Even with the 4th of July crowds, it really is the happiest place on earth. If you get a chance to go during their 60th Anniversary festivities, GO. And stay for the fireworks, because they’re out of this world. Pro tip: Try to get seats near the Fantasmic light show. The fireworks seats are near the castle, but if you sit by the lake you can see the film projections that they have going during the show. (I’m so not a pro. For all I know they project those onto the castle as well.)

Summer TV Wins

29 Jun

We’re well into the swing of summer TV and I think some clear winners have emerged. There are returning favorites, and some new ones that I’m really loving. Like, super loving.

So, in no particular order, here are my wins for summer TV.

Wayward Pines

After the first few episodes you think this is a creepy show, and then there’s a twist worthy of M. Night Shyamalan and you start to realize it’s creepier than you could have imagined. I like that they gave us a fair degree of explanation soon, so it didn’t get frustrating to be kept in the dark, but there’s still plenty of mystery and unanswered questions.

The Whispers

Kids are terrifying. That’s the key takeaway here. There are moments in this show that are just straight up bone chilling, and I have to give major props to all of the child actors who manage to be so terrifying. Thanks for the nightmares, kids.

Master Chef

I mean, come on, it’s a summer staple. I love Gordon Ramsay and this season is more of the feel good cutthroat competition we’ve all come to love. It will always be one of my favs, but most of his shows are. They’re just really good, and they manage to stay the same without ever feeling stale.

The Astronaut Wives Club

I have to admit that I started watching this solely for the clothes (and have not been disappointed) but the story ended up sucking me in too. I love the dynamic between the wives and the way they’ve set up each of their backstories. Plus, the clothes really are to die for.

American Ninja Warrior

Duh. It’s not summer without American Ninja Warrior! I think what I love most about this show is how quickly I become an expert on each obstacle. “No, you need to lead with your left hand!” “Oh, you’re swinging front to back, it’s over, bro.” Never mind that I could never in a million years do any of these things, from my spot on the couch I’m a real pro.

While I Was Out

25 Jun

I just got back from a trip to Texas for my grandparents’ funeral and I am totally emotionally wiped out. It’s going to take me some time to get back to normal. So in the meantime, here’s some of what I missed while I was offline and unplugged.

Jurassic Weenie

‘Nuff said.

Taylor Swift’s Whale

Not only did T-Swift shut down some sexism (hi, let’s find a better way of describing her than “Harry Styles’ ex-girlfriend), but she did it with a whale, which makes it automatically a million times better. BuzzFeed has the deets.

Denise Richards Keeps it Classy

So, you know how Charlie Sheen is kind of nuts? Good, we’re all on the same page. Well in response to a crazy pants Twitter rant about his ex-wife, said ex-wife Denise Richards responded in the classiest way possible. Mad props, Denise.

The Next Fitness Star

Women’s Health has a contest going to find the next fitness star, and the finalists have been revealed! And guess who one of them is? None other than Christine Bullock, who tried to kill me a few weeks ago. So you should vote for her, because she’s badass, and she’ll help you get a great ass.

Amazon Prime Streaming

Y’all know I love a good binge-fest as much as anyone, and I love me some Amazon Prime. You can get a free 30-day trial to experience all the bingey goodness. You’re welcome.
