It has now been a few months since I
started One Life to Live and I donít see myself going anywhere.
Between two soaps and a multitude of prime time TV it gets hard to
keep up sometime, but I just canít see myself walking away.
surprisingly pleased so far with the recast of Clint Buchanan.
Perhaps it is because I was away for so long or because Clint was
away so long, but so far the transition has been quite easy. I see
many of the same mannerisms and behaviors that I would expect from
Clint and I believe Jerry Van Dorn will be a welcome addition to the

in trying to pretend otherwise. If they were going for the tortured
soul with a big heart the writers sure missed the mark. Vicki was
on the money when she blasted Antonio for hiding Jessicaís condition
all these many months. Had he opened his mouth maybe none of this
would have happened (and thank god he kept his lips zipped because
then heíd have been in our face all the more and we never would have
gotten Nash.) It just amazes me that after Jessica spent months
away from Llanview, Antonio is all over the hospital on his soapbox
threatening to kill Nash. (Nash will fight back).
months Antonio knew Jessica was running around, screwing around and
bumming around and yet he did nothing, told no one. Now he seems to

unthinkable and made Adriana likeable, now the question that seems
to be circling is, can he do the same for Layla? No offense to Ms.
Sumpter who portrays Layla, but this character has not been clicking
for me. I donít see her clicking with either Antonio or even
Evangeline for that matter. Can I see her with Rex? Honestly, I am
starting to think I can see anyone with Rex.
Todd is off
and running and as Sage mentioned in his spoilers (10/31/05
) he is in disguise.
Toddís Great Disguise
Bet you didnít recognize him.
I find Hugh so
amusingly adorable. His whole relationship with Marcie kind of
reminds me of real life. I mean here is this really attractive guy
and not to be mean, but the fact is Marcie is overweight, and I can
relate to how she feels. It is like I hear her thinking, what is
this guy, who attracts models by the dozens, doing with plain old
me. And I think we as women have all wondered that once or twice in
our lives. Even recently my friends know I was hesitant to get
involved with a certain guy because he was skinnier than me. I like
that he likes Marcie and I like watching them together and I never
caught it the first time around but perhaps that Michael ship has
