Hiya

So, um, hi! I'm not really sure what to say actually...

Well, I absolutely adore Joanna Lumley. I first found out about her when I was a lot younger than today, maybe 12 or 13 at most. I was a raving Helena Bonham Carter fangirl at the time, and was dead-set on seeing everything she was ever in. One day, I came across Helena's part in Ab Fab online. I vaguely remember thinking that it was the most peculiar show on Earth (mind you, I had only seen Edina's dream sequence).

However, I saw one day while flipping through the channels on TV that there was an Absolutely Fabulous marathon. I ended up watching every episode in the marathon and laughing so hard that my mother had to come and check up on me.

After that, I was like a junkie. I couldn't stop watching it. My adoration for Helena Bonham Carter faded, but my love for Eddie and Patsy never wavered. I realised I was hooked for life. ^^
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Now that that long-winded story is over, I'd like to mention that I am a sci fi girl, through and through. I love Doctor Who and Sapphire and Steel.

Joanna is just an amazing person. She's smart, talented and a stunner. What's not to love? :D
I'm really happy to have found this site.Other than that, there's not much else I can think of... (Sorry about the ridiculous length of the post; I got a bit carried away :roll:)

Re: Hiya

Welcome, Jupiter. :wave: I'm majorly wordy, so you're not alone. :lol:

I only watched Sapphire and Steel a couple months back, but I really enjoyed it. I came to Joanna through The New Avengers, though, her real acting breakthrough and a wonderful series to boot. You'll find I talk about it a lot. :lol:
