the week ending June 22, 2001 . . .
(seriously long again)
First, I’m going to
take all things L&L out, otherwise that is ALL I would talk about - The end
of an era. ::sniff::
I….I….I still can’t talk about it.
From Liz’s reaction I
now understand why all the Cassadines are so impressed with the Ice Princess.
It is apparently the largest family
jewel; however, from my perspective ---there ain’t
nuthin’ wrong with a Naked Nik!
Looks like somebody
finally treated Mac with some frontline. Dear
Mac….like the Edwin McCain song says === “I’ll be you’re crying shoulder”. Bad Flea…BAD! Insert
montage of Tracey holding Mac’s hand, her arm around his shoulder to comfort
him, talking to him in the park, late night phone calls to help him heal his
broken heart until he realizes that he, in fact, does not love Flea but is
instead fascinated by his newest best friend.
*g* Extra demerits for Flea
allowing Luke to yell at her already distraught children.
Zander and Emily and
their less than convincing “disguises”.
Are they kidding me? I
realize this isn’t Mission Impossible but puhleeze!
Sunglasses indoors are a dead-giveaway that something is amiss and
let’s not forget the ski hats and jackets in late June. Em didn’t even bother to put her hair up.
If I didn’t know better I’d think they wanted
to get caught. The idea is to look
LESS conspicuous. Rent The Saint
and The Jackyll, babe! Excellent disguise tips and a couple hours worth of Val
Kilmer and Richard Gere.
First and foremost: No Ned.
Secondly, how can we
have a Nurse’s Ball without Robin? Not
that I blame Kimberly for not showing up…if I was her I wouldn’t touch GH
with a ten foot pole right now, but a ball without Robin just.isn’t.right.
Where was Elton during
all of this? It would have been a
RIOT to see Lucy and Elton working together!
- - the only person I’ve ever seen who can wear hair extensions successfully. ¬¬¬¬.
Half a demerit for the muppet dress, but I’m sure it was a Chloe design
so I’ll let it slide on your behalf since it was such a big night that ended
up being full of disasters, including you in your underwear in the E.R.
Where were the locusts?
What good sports they are. Can
we please, please, please see more of AJ and Taggert in those tight t-shirts,
Laura – Wrong
from top to bottom. The hair was a
mess. The dress was wrong, the
fabric was wrong, the date was wrong…oh but I’m still not talking about
for showing up this year to support her children and the cause.
I’ve had the pleasure of seeing Coltin perform last year at SSW and I
wasn’t disappointed in this performance (putting aside the fact that a Cassadine
Prince was performing in a talent show).
I was pleasantly surprised by Jacob’s performance.
Most impressive, however, was Coltin playing the sax – I love a man who
knows how to handle his instrument. I
loved their number, although I did think the roof “set” on the roof
was slightly redundant.
I loved Skye’s
dress. The entire package was well
put together and she even behaved herself so she gets ¬¬¬¬¬.
Bravo Skye. I actually liked Skye last week too and believe me that is a first (on ANY of
the ABC shows she’s appeared on)! I
guess it is really tough to be scheming and unnecessarily bitchy without much
dialogue. I was left with the
impression that she’s beginning to care about Emily and Alan more than she
wants to hurt them. Also, to back
up a week since I didn’t contribute anything meaningful last week, I loved her
advice to AJ regarding getting custody of Michael. At least if she’s going to scheme
Melissa also ¬¬¬¬.
Lovely dress, great color nice hair, appropriate accessories and very
little of her halo was showing.
The Nurses –
Stunning in red!
You go girls! ¬¬¬
Excellent! Something other than a
suit! I was very impressed.
It was so very Alexis. Understated
elegance, sexy but not flashy. WTG!
It’s too bad she never made it to the ball to show it off.
Where did she think she was going when she got dressed? That dress was hideous.
No more hair extensions for you girly-girl!
It always looks like there’s more hair than person there!
Stop it now. ¬
just for being there and not harassing Stefan again.
loved the dress, hated the color on her.
She blended into the scenery - ¬¬.
Additionally, she receives massive demerits for screeching, er
“singing” at the ball. Honey, I
would have paid money on the Amanda Barrington scale for you to stop! GMAB on all the Fluke action.
As much as I love to see Luke cut loose, I prefer not to see him with
dress looked very much like Chloe’s from two years ago but it worked.
She looked young and hip, but I do have a problem with navels being
exhibited at such a classy affair. ¬¬¬
Spectacular! Always the best dressed. ¬¬¬¬
all the way! One ¬ demerit for appearing without Andreas.
Ditch the new sidekick and bring back Andreas.
– Hated the dress more than I hated Laura’s California Raisin Tribute!
LOVED the song so much so that I’m giving you ¬¬
despite the fashion faux pas.
Stavros – Skulking
isn’t attractive on anyone, nor is the Neanderthal grunting psychobabble.
Does anybody else expect him to start grunting about “Laura-nugs”
next? (Encino Man reference, sorry for bringing it down to the level of a Polly
Shore movie) Just once I’d like
for a back-from-the-dead character to walk right out of their
coma/freezing/kidnapping/extended vacation and up to their target/loved one and
bear hug the stuffins out of ‘em right away without all of the lingering about
in the shadows for weeks on end. No ¬ because I’m still pissed about the dead dog.
- Pretty in Pink? He looked
like a mama’s boy with the slikcked-back hair and the sissy-colored shirt. ¬¬
For a great singing number.
Stefan – WHAT A BABE! ¬¬¬
for looking so scrumptious and for spending all of psychobrother’s money
before he has a chance to reclaim it. Minus
¬ for leering at the unworthy-of-your-attention-death-to-a-story-Chloe all
Did ANYONE have a date
for this affair? Chloe may have
been there with Tony. I’m not
sure. Stefan was alone. Roy was alone. Flea
and Luke left her house with a “maybe I’ll see you there”.
I think Nik and Gia and Alan and Monica were the only couples there from
the GH side of things.
Joe and Gabi.
My friend David says he has a whole new appreciation for that song after
Gabi’s performance. He was WAY more impressed than Joe. I did find it wholly inappropriate to do a strip tease at an
AIDS fundraiser but the bemused shock on everyone’s faces was enough for me to
forgive her. ¬¬¬¬
for thoroughly amusing me.
Alison & Jamal and
Livvie - They can each act circles around any of the “teens” on GH (with the
exception of Amber) but none of them should EVER—EVER—EVER sing again. ¬¬¬¬
for them together because demerits for that pitiful rendition of Love Potion No.
9 put them into negative stars separately.
looked spooky and menacing but Caleb wins the title of best dressed demon!
:::::fanning self::::::: What a hottie he is!
It was nice to see
Victor and Mary again, but I was positively giddy at seeing Lee and Gail
(smashing dress too, Gail!- ¬¬¬¬
she looked brilliant in white) interacting with Scotty, Laura and Serena!
It was nice to finally see Serena with her father again.
Note to TPTB: We should be
seeing as much of Serena as we do of Scott.
Until he arrived back on GH, Scott and Serena were inseparable and now we
never see her. While I’m on the
subject of Scott, it was made glaringly obvious again that Port Charles is
better written than GH when Lucy addressed on several occasions the fact that
Christina’s birthday had passed and the Nurse’s Ball was on (or near…I
forget) the anniversary of Christina’s disappearance but Scott was busy
harassing Luke and Laura to finalize their divorce.
So much for continuity and character integrity.
of the week was, without a doubt, Alan singing to Emily
in the Emergency Room. I have
always enjoyed the relationship between Alan and Emily (who can forget that
scene when Alan was in jail and Emily visited him, :sniff: ).
It isn’t very often these days that we are treated to a dramatic
performance from Stuart Damon and when he’s finally given something he sinks
his teeth in with lion-like ferocity! He
very subtly displayed the fear and hope of a father together with the knowing of
a physician and his lullaby to keep Emily calm was beautiful.
I, also, do not think there was any coincidence in showing Zander every
time he mentioned demons. I just
hope Emily doesn’t end up in the same rehabilitation clinic as our beloved
Sean Donnelly because he hasn’t been back since checking in there.
Loved how Zander just
lit into Sorel’s guy in the Emergency Room!
You go Zander! It’s about
time somebody took a proactive stance
against Sorel and his goons!
And, yes, there is
a reason I haven’t said anything about Sonny and Angel.
I’m hoping and praying desperately on bended knee that if I ignore them
both long enough that they’ll both just go away . . . and take FauxSnarly with
It is exactly one month until I hit L.A.! Wahoo!
