I cannot believe
how sick I was. I thought Strep Throat was reserved for younger
children, but boy does it kick your ass as an adult. For 6 days all I
could do was lie there, in my bed, unable to focus or concentrate on
anything. It was absolutely awful. While I was sleeping summer came
and I am really starting to think it is the gym that does it. No lie,
every time I work out I get sick. It has to be a sign that I should
not be there.
Thankfully I am
back on my feet again and ready to dish some soaps.
I found John and
Evangeline’s relationship very odd. As a matter of fact until they
broke up and I saw the flash back scenes I never really believed they
were a couple of that magnitude. In their scenes with one another I
always sensed a distance, like two people dancing around one another
but never really connecting. In my 4 weeks of watching OLTL I just
sort of got the feeling that they claimed to like one another but
never really committed to one another. I never saw any sparks in the
room with these two characters. With John running around being super
cop and Natalie running along after him I just thought the whole
Evangeline issue was a front. A ploy developed strictly to create a
triangle for Natalie, John and Evangeline. Imagine my surprise when I
saw the hot sex on the table scenes with the groping and half naked
bodies. Whew! I am sorry I missed that one the first time around.
Still, my feelings remain that perhaps this is one horse that is
better off dead. Seems to me John has some serious emotional baggage
that he is lugging around, or he is just a typical male who hates to
say I love you. Either way, Evangeline would do way better without
him and is starting to look a little foolish to me.
I used to love
Nora. When I watched OLTL her and Bo were the cutest couple. All
smiles and grins and dancing and cuteness all through their courtship
and Chuck Berry wedding. Something major must have happened while I
was away. I am afraid I don’t understand why Nora actually spit venom
at Bo when she coldly informed him that she would be sure to hide her
true feeling for Bo (her hate) from their son Matthew. What did Bo
do? Is this a classic case of shoot the messenger? From where I sit
she needs to thank the man for saving her and her son from living with
a stone cold killer. Everything else it seems to me Nora has bought
on herself by making very bad decisions and hardly being the strong
courageous women I once knew.
“Come on ride the
train…” I’ll be damned if that song doesn’t pop in my head every time
Tess pops out. “…It’s the choo choo train…” That insane little
vixen. I am pleased at how much I enjoy Bree Williamson as Jessica.
Unfortunately, I am not at all sold on the DID, split personality
story. We have seen this done so many times on so many soaps, not to
mention this very soap that through the years has explored this story
more than once. I am not sure that this is a storyline that is ready
to be recycled; we all know how it will go. The alter is a party
animal, that sleeps around, ruins Jess’s life, eventually probably
tries to kill someone or burn something, blah blah blah…
I think this is one
train ride I might be better off skipping.
Some of Llanview is
a little strange to me still. I keep seeing all these Kramer’s and
Buchanan’s existing together and sleeping together and I remember when
they all hated one another. Now Blair is going to check on Vicki and
Todd is watching out for Jessica and Kelly still lives on Buchanan
property, everyone is existing so nice and peacefully. I really
cannot get used to Heather Tom as Kelly. That was a non-sequitor but
I thought it so I wrote it. I think that Adriana is a Kramer and she
seemed quite comfy at Renee’s house with this Duke guy (who I think
might be Kevin’s son with Leann Demerest but I don’t understand why he
and his Dad look about the same age so maybe I am wrong.)
David and Spencer
have some serious chemistry going on. I totally buy they are brothers
and that they are really arch-nemesis. I love it. I love seeing
David being all tough guy mach man. David is many things, a con, a
scammer, a charmer, but mostly he is usually just loveable. It is
just so fun seeing him try to beat up on Spencer and it was even more
fun seeing Spencer finally get tired of swatting David like a little
annoying gnat and get serious. If my eyes did not deceive he stopped
David dead in his track with only his thumb. One thumb. How hot is
that? I am surprised to be so into Spencer. It must be that classic
attraction to what may be dark because I never liked him over on GH as
Paul wishy-washy Hornsby. I don’t know where this Paige chick fits in
but if it breaks up her and Bo I am all for it. I am finding Spencer
delicious and right now I’d be happy to see him with Blair, or maybe
Jessica or hell he can even give Nora a shot while he’s at it. Just
bring it on.
Over on GH, while I
fast forward daily, I see some flashes, mostly they are of Sonny and
Emily though so obviously not much has changed there in 4 weeks. I do
stop to watch Luke and his gang, but to be honest their partner
switching on every other episode is going to get old real fast if the
don’t kick it up a notch. Someone else on EOS said that they just
didn’t see Skye and Luke as a couple and I have to agree. They make
great partners; they should have many adventures and capers all the
time, but I don’t think they should sleep together. Actually right
now I think Luke would be best off Romantically involved with Alice.
That’s a woman for him. Coleman is a dirty and scheming as ever and I
love him for it. I like any story that puts him on the screen and I
will always stop for that handsome face. Wait that is a lie. I
cannot stop for him when he is in scenes with Courtney.
Saint Emily appears
back at work. Making all right in the world for Michael, letting Nik
kiss her, and getting therapy, while taking a time out to tell off
Carly and cheer for Sam. Sadly GH has decided that we viewers should
get to watch a violent, vicious scene, but should in no way take part
in understanding what a rape victim must go through in order to
recover. Contrary to what GH would have you believe, torching the
location of the attack, having maybe 2 therapy sessions and then
pretending to have a “first” date with your husband does not make for
an effective cure. Never fear though, Saint Emily will once again be
of sound mind and ready to make love to her husband who looks just
like her rapist in no time flat!
Tell me again why
neither Carly nor Reese realized they knew each other before Reese got
another boo boo?
This has been fun.
I feel oddly cleansed. Until next week my friends….
