us stay around!---->
C'mon, you know you love us! Donate to EOS!
Happy Summer, you gorgeous thang, you! It's great to
be back in the loving arms of the EOS readership! I'd do a little stage
diving feel all your sweet hands on me, pushing me around the room, but let's
face it, I'm old and we have soaps to dish, so pull up a chair, pour your
favorite drink of choice and let's get started talking soaps!
It takes more than a quivering lip and a bleated "Mommeeee"
to win me over to JR and be manipulated into thinking that the walls have come
tumbling down and his asshole facade has crumbled. In his case, asshole
like that goes through to the BONE, lovey. (and that's not a very pretty
mental image for me to conjure up, believe me) The Dianna/Dixie store has
definitely been pulling at heart strings, but not where JR is concerned. I
loved watching Opal and Palmer react to the news that the sainted Dixie is back,
even though I had a moment's concern thinking they might actually write my
Palmer off the show! With these veteran actors, you never know which way
they're going to go. If ever a character could rock the very foundation of
Pine Valley by coming back from the dead, it would be Dixie. I am loving
the story of her return (frankly, at this point, I don't care if it's the real
Dixie or not), even though I have never liked the character of Dixie.
Drama, I like. Ripple effect, I like. Debauchery, I like.
Debaucherous David, I like even more. Sanctimonious Tad getting knocked on
his ass, I like. Adam trying to convince himself it's not Dixie, I like.
JR being stunned in the deadlights for long enough to take a brief break from
bashing on Babe and Jamie, I like. So yeah, there's enough about this
story that I love, even though I don't overall care for the central character.
I do have to say that if this is not the real Dixie, ol' Di is doing a great job
of pulling minute details out of her ass one right after another like a string
of pearls (yet another mental image I so did not need).
Are there any other stories going on? Well, none
that particularly interest me. I usually end up choking on a little bit of
my own vomit every time any part of the Ryan and Greenlee "Quest For the Sperm"
story is on. It just keeps getting worse and worse every day, culminating
with Ryan finally realizing what we've known all along: He's just an
asshole. Greenlee is a little slower at catching on, but with any luck,
she'll figure it out and this dark moment of AMC history will slip back into the
annals of history. Ack poo.
The moments are ticking away until even more of the Santos
family slips away. Anita, Maria and Maddie will be heading out to
California to join Hayley and Mateo in that great Santos retreat in the west.
Anita will return and of course, Julia isn't far behind and will actually bring
a story with her. Natalia Cigliuti (Anita) will be back after she has her
baby later this month.
In that wondrous world known as the soap penal system,
Krystal's 8 year (Was it 8? Pfft, as if I care) sentence is commuted and
she will be walking free soon, able to give out all of the conjugal visits and
get all the lipstick she wants. Trading in her stylish prison duds for
leopard skin and day glo, she'll be able to give Dixie a proper run for her
money. She'll fit squarely into the other leg of the Di and Tad
One of my favorite couples will be re-explored, Brooke and
Adam. Their illicit dalliance a while back was enough to wet the whistle,
but now we are going to get another go at it. Giving Brooke some air time
is never a bad thing and giving it to her with Adam is even better. She's
no Mary Smythe by any means, but it's a whole lot of fun in a completely
From the info I am getting at this time, it looks like
Evangeline and John might actually come out the winners after all. It's
been neck and neck between Jolie and Jovan for months on end and I, for one,
don't care who ends up with whom, I'd just like to see the guy make up his
mind and move on. With news that David Fumero is revisiting the role of
Cris, we may now see why the story was dragging out. I expect it is going
to culminate with Natalie finding out that John knew all along it was Cristian
who was shipped off to prison and that being the final blow to their lusty
connection. I'm just talking out of my ass here (another mental image I
didn't need) and speculating, but that's where I see it going.
The character of Paige is definitely being written off, in
an "interesting" way. As it turns out, she and Spencer Truman have a child
who is already on canvas. I was pushing for Adrianna to get passed around
the ol' Parent-Go-Round yet again or maybe Matthew could get another DNA test
and find out he was a switched baby at the hospital and doesn't belong to the
Rappaports OR the Buchanans. Actually, my money is on ol' Ginger.
She's been making her Shannon-clone self a constant presence and what better way
than to wind up the genetic offspring of the new hotness in town?
Kelly and Kevin (my eyes! my eyes! aaagggghhh!)
will be getting jiggy before long. We all know how Kevin festers to have
women who are his (pretty much any woman who is not his) and now that Kelly has
googly eyes for Spencer Truman, she will be damned near irresistible to Kevin of
the wandering phallus (yet another mental image...). The only woman Kevin didn't
cheat on was Grace and that's because she didn't live long enough for him to
catch anyone else's eye. I guess that's the way to gain Kevin's fidelity:
Pregnant Margaret will be on the scene soon (I think the
story was delayed out to allow portrayer Tara Signor time to deliver her own
baby and recover), stirring up more trouble for Blair and Todd. This will
be after the Blair-Asa crap all plays out, although Blair will be sure at first
that it's Margaret who is trying to kill her. I've heard that in the end,
Margaret will be killed and Todd and Blair will end up raising Todd's baby.
Bo and Nora are a go later this Summer, but not before
Nora has a complete breakdown and Bo comes to her rescue. You just don't
make your way through a homicidal husband who also happens to dig on young guys
without taking a knock or two upstairs.
I don't know how much of this is out there on the net yet
(I don't go to spoiler sites, myself), but a friend of mine who used to work at
GH dropped to me that Georgie's fall was a red herring for the real
person close to her who ends up giving Maxie a heart. I was thinking
Frisco, but maybe not... I'm guessing there's an even better reason than
we originally heard why Kristina Wagner passed on the story.
I was so hoping it was all going to make sense with Michael's little buddy (who
looks suspiciously like
cherubic harbinger of death who tried to talk Skye into jumping off the
Wyndemere parapet a while back) being either imaginary or a ghost. I was
voting ghost. I'd love for her to be the ghost of a little girl who was
accidentally killed in a shootout by mobsters or something, preferably with
Sonny involved. Oh the drama of it all! But it's not to be.
Instead, it's a real little kid with a mommy who isn't very happy with the
little girl hanging around with the son of Port Charles' resident crime lord.
Oh for the missed opportunities!
The road to baby bliss is going to be rocky for Courtney
and Jax. It's a shame too, because here they are, married for all of 37
minutes AND THEY DO NOT YET HAVE A BABY!!!!!!! I mean, how can this be?
Initial attempts at fertilization will not be successful.
Well, shit. I was about to tell you that Big Daddy
John is going to take a bullet to the back when right here on my TV, Big Daddy
John took a bullet to the back. Snoozing and loozing and all that stuff.
He'll be looking at the world from a wheelchair from a while and he will NOT be
happy about it.
I can't wait to see Tracy Q running GH. She's been
shining in her scenes with Coleman and Luke. Seeing even more of her at
her Traciest will be a joy and wow, was that a Colemanpalooza or WHAT?
Sage= Happy That continues as he and Skye do some plotting and scheming
and I'm just pleased as punch. :)~
If you didn't do like I told you and go to
www.ghfanclub.com to order your tickets
for THE absolute, undisputed GH event, the General Hospital Fan Club Weekend
Luncheon, then you might be too late! The event is officially SOLD OUT and
there is a waiting list forming. Katrina and others from the EOS staff
will be on hand to cover the events and report back for the 5th year running.
Be sure and find the girls and say hello!
I wandered over the my friend,
Carol Banks Weber's column
(which is the only other column I visit) on Soap Zone and was amused to see that
I guess there was some hub-bub, a brouhaha, as it were, a FRACAS because some
designer got her designer thong in a bunch over the confusing arrangement of the
fashion house's name and because some of the dresses were described as "tacky."
She also evidently had a problem with the dresses being referred to as "pink"
rather than "coral" and some confusion over what designer created which dress.
After reviewing the dresses on the site, I have to say that if the designers
were passing off claim (or blame) for their creations, it was likely akin to a
custody battle where each parent says, "No, YOU take the kids." I voted
like a good little internet scout and wow, I've got to say I am impressed both
by the amount of dust these folks kicked up and with how Soap Zone webmaster,
Jeff Jungblut handled the situation. His classy, tongue-in-cheek,
light-heartedness over whatever occurred (while still offering apologies) put a
smile on my face during a really frustrating week. (Lifting my glass to
Hmmm. I just saw that both Carol and I used the
phrase "red herring" to describe Georgie in regard to being the heart donor for
Maxie. I swear to Bill Gates (since my computer recently had troubles, he
is my new Deity of the Moment) that I had that phrase nicely nailed down in my
broke ass computer at the time Carol wrote it. Great minds and all that...
This great mind is going to get this posted and
settle into my NEW HOT TUB and relax into the Solstice night. Besides,
tonight is the night for Fairies and Magic and Sage has just GOT to be a part of
Peace to all of you, my darlings,
