My lists are made and
Iíve checked them twice. Itís
not helping though because, thereís more on the list than I can afford.
Thatís probably a good thing or I wouldnít have any ideas left for
birthdays. The season is chugging
along nicely and perhaps itíll all work out in the end like always.
Iíve received several e-mails this week from disappointed fans who do
not enjoy the manner in which GH is chugging along.
Hereís my offering of encouragement Ė a line recently spoken on Judging
Amy. ďItíll all be fine
in the end. If itís not fine,
itís not the end.Ē The beauty
of a soap is that itís never the end. Be
of good cheer. Whateverís causing you to roll your eyes will soon evolve
into something else. Maybe
something youíll like.
Speaking of lists and
gifts I have a few more ideas:
Jason Ė Miss Manners ďBook of DatingĒ
Lila Ė Afternoon tea with the Queen
Jax Ė A part in the new upcoming Spiderman movie
Jax - Just kidding, how about a beautiful coffee table book entitled, ďLovebirds R UsĒ so he can plan his life with Brenda
Lucky Ė A clue Ė sorry, thatís mean. How about a Chia Pet Ė you choose the shape.
Alexis Ė A rocking chair in her apartment, a Zoloft (I love that commercial, it almost makes me want to be depressed just so I can try some), some soothing music, popcorn, and a babysitter.
Scotty Ė V (remember
her?) as his personal assistant so heíd be obligated to walk the high road
instead of creating unlawful muddles wherever he goes.
What do you think about Lukeís new playmate and the circumstances in which they became involved? Summer catches Lukeís attention in a dramatic way when she strolls in front of a truck and he pushes her to safety. Following her to the park he finds her blue scarf conveniently dropped in the snow. Heís hooked and tries to see more of Ghost of Laura (Summer) because heís grieving so deeply. Summer plays hard to get but finally relents with cash in hand. They dance, dine and Luke reminisces at Wyndoms but the mess mysteriously disappears and the security camera shows only Luke entering the building. Doctor Cam straightjacketís Luke and chains him to a chair in the name of therapy. Henceforth, Summer walks in the door where Luke is meditating on his sanity or lack of, unchains him and they escape. One set of footprints in the snow. Spoilers mention that Lucky meets Summer on December 26 so perhaps sheís real with powers of levitation. A lot of coincidences keep popping up here. Red flags are waving and I am hoping I smell Helena. Could it be? Are the writers setting up an arc for either Tony Gearyís departure from the show or a grand return of our Gal of Evil?
|Is she real? Or is she Memorex?
Why did Lucky just stand
there and watch Luke get carted out in a straight jacket?
Lucky, King of Belligerence and Defiance watches the father he adores
struggling between two goons and he makes no move to shake loose from Dr.
Cameron to save his Dad. I think
his Tough Guy Card should be taken away.
I hope the good Dr.
Cameron can eat crow as well as he passes along his little pearls of wisdom.
Lucky is busily trying to prevent the public from stripping his dadís
business and Dr. Cam follows him around the room insisting that Lukeís
really bonkers. I wanted Lucky to
turn around and say, ďOK, I heard you.
Now take your hands out of your pockets and HELP OR GET OUT.Ē For all that wisdom, maybe some people skills are in order
for our new shrink. For instance,
when a personĎs mind and body are absorbed in preventing the bar patrons
from departing with the bar, that may not be a good time to try to
engage in deep conversation. Iím
thinking itís really going to be a downer for the Doc when he discovers that
Lukeís Summer exists as flesh and blood and not Lukeís personal mind
letís-meet-in-secret scenario between Courtney and Jason doesnít work for
me. I guess Iím more of an
in-your-face kinda girl. It
doesnít matter how they phrase it - letís keep this between us, letís
sneak around, letís rent a place to meet but not say weíre having sex Ė
the affair, the relationship, the lovefest (call it what you want) will soon
blow up in their faces. While I
always enjoy Jason on screen, my eyes will roll until these two play a
storyline thatís a little less hackneyed than ďThe Secret Affair Doomed
from the Start.Ē
Ms. NuGia certainly
presents a VERY different punch than Ms. Just-Left-For-Primetime-Original Gia.
Sheís only showed up in a few scenes so I havenít formed an opinion
yet. Iím still trying to get
past the hair. Nothing specific,
itís just soÖso different.
First this. Now this.
drunkenly hits Nicholas with her car. Transported
by ambulance, Nik lands in the hospitalÖthen nothing.
Iím all for cliffhangers, but this was more like the writers forgot
they put this little drama out there. Odd.
Yeah for the Happy Dance Joe Boxer guyís return! The striptease makes me chuckle each time he hits my screen with it.
Itís allll about the fun.

Coleman and Skye together made the air crackle. And I love that Colemanís blackmail deal doesnít involve money but a clean up job. I can visualize these two together. Coleman would definitely present a challenge since Skye would be unable to manipulate him. How much you want to bet that Colemanís image sanitation job really involves his yearning for respect and/or admiration from Courtney? Thatís where his vulnerabilities will appear. I guess itís a little early to start predictions for Coleman and Skye or Courtney.
The line that captured
my full attention this week goes to Carly who told Sonny, ďIím sorry I ran
out on you earlier. Iím PMSing,
OK?Ē If a man wrote that line, I resent it. Isnít there a manís law of survival that states only
women can refer to PMS? And if a
woman wrote it, Iím angry. Carly
cannot run around blaming her bad behavior on PMS because sheíll ruin that
excuse for the rest of us. All I
need is for my husband to hear that line and the next time Iím REALLY PMSing,
heíll say Iíve been watching a little too much GH because I must think
Iím Carly. Oh yeah, the
fighting would begin then.
Did you ever notice that
as soon as Carly and Sonny kiss or prepare to kiss a doorbell or telephone
rings? Itís like washing my van.
I wash, the rains come.
Sorry this weekís
column turned out so short. It
seems that my to-do list is waging a mighty battle with the
only-24-hours-in-a-day concept. Currently,
the to-do list is winning. I
really need to switch to a flextime plan.
As long as I have energy, I think I should have time.
Someday I plan to discuss this concept with God.
Before you go, pause and take a deep breath.
Smell that? Thatís the
847 dozen cookies I baked with my Grandma and friends on Sunday afternoon.
Thatís Christmas cheer wafting your way from Texas.
Merry Christmas all. Thanks
