The History of Us

When We were Young...

Ok. So. Looks like there was some dust-up today on Twitter after the wreck-mess of a dialog aired today on GH. 
You know, the one...between Laura and Holly? Yeah, that one. The one where it seems now that EMMA and TONY forgot about their history on the show. Emma Samms tweets: 

Big confession re GH. Tony & I couldn't remember the Bill/Holly thing so changed line. NOT fault of or

This was tweeted after Ron screen capped  his script for us to see that it was, indeed "in there" that Holly  had a relationship with Bill "in a fashion". (They had a full on rager of a relationship but hey, that's splitting hairs). 
SO..according to all involved, Emma changed the script because...they couldn't remember what happened. Even though the head writer wrote it.
Ok. welp. Let's accept that explaination. Ok? Let's say..ok-- no problem. Forget the whole Bill and Holly 'thing'. 


Only, guess what. 

Holly and or Emma or whomever ALSO seemed to forget that Holly WAS THERE at the ranch when Luke came and yelled he was going to be a father.
She actually cheered.
Want to watch it? It's at the end, but the whole thing is glorious.

 Some awesome person (@msNonoESQ)  in my timeline found it for me: 



I love this clip--when they talk about baby names. Squee. It's my Luke and Laura!! But...then you know, Guza f'ked things up and made Ethan Luke's son and not Robert's, throwing an wrench into this happy memory.
So... I actually did come to not really 'care' that Luke went to HONG KONG when he was so in love with Laura and slept with Holly. Whatever. I just pushed it away. Like I do a LOT for this show. 


But then, we get the scene...the one between Holly and Laura addressing all of this and what. 
WHAT!! WHAT??????? Holly says she didn't know about Laura--or Lucky. Hello--this was a HUGE deal for all of us. This scene with Laura and their impending baby. The phone call to Ruby.  Awwww.
Oh, and  something else.  Robert actually told Holly that Luke and Laura had a baby boy later on. Named Lucky. But, hey, who's paying attention. Just us oldsters, that's who. 


SO! There's all that. I'm not even going to speculate on what happened to the "I don't know Bill" line. I have my ideas but the point is moot. I am going to weigh in on the huge F'k up of the OTHER part though. So, here it goes:

You all know I've watched GH forever. Most, if not all of my friends "Grew Out" of their phase with Soaps. I actually like the genre though, and have stuck with it, blogged about it and bitched and celebrated with the rest of you all.  We are fans. Probably some of the first 'fandoms' out there. We get bashed, made fun of, you name it. You have no idea the number of rolled-eyes I've lived thru if anyone finds out I actually blog/tweet about GH.
Yet, I endure.  That's what passionate fans do. 

We also remember. 

Like Elephants. Like The Vault. We remember. Sort of like reading your favorite book in the whole world. The one you love to pieces. Someone comes along and writes a sequel and goes "oh, just forget that stuff you knew and really took to heart...it's not important, here's your new reality. Deal with it". 

By the way, when I was watching those scenes real-time I DID NOT HAVE A VCR.  There were no reruns. Our "reruns" were when we were lucky enough to get flashbacks! 
I never saw them again until You Tube. 
WE remembered them!! I remember so much about GH in those years, I can't even tell you. Lucky meeting Ruby for the first time? Yep.  Things like that stick.
Did I forget the Diner didn't blow up? Yes, I do admit to that..thought it did. Things that matter though? Like an entire relationship storyline or a pivotal plot about Luke coming back from his adventure with Holy and Robert?  You bet. And I'm callin' you on it. 


This Luke send off is thin at best. The beginning of the story has been lacking in just about everything. So when you get that much history wrong on top of it all,  people are going to bitch.
Call me crazy. Call me picky..call me whatever. I want a good story. And if you are sending a giant legend off please, for godsake, do your homework. 


That's all. 

WHOOPS



IF you watch the show today, Holly basically says she didn't know Bill.

So, RON tweets the SCRIPT saying that the line got "LOST" in today's show where Holly says she doesn't know Bill.

I am just dying laughing. The biggest send off in GH history and THAT gets Fk'd up????? WHAT!
AHAHAHAHAA>

Tuesday

New Spoilers are up. Hit the link at the top of the page! 




Here's the New GH PROMO:  GENERAL HOSPITAL FIREWORKS 

Has some saying a little tyke may be alive. Which, for GH is par for the course. I would find it VERY gratuitous but that's me.  Just hope it plays out well an that this "goodbye" turns out to be way better than it's going now.

I will not deal with ANY more "Back from the Dead" .."SHOCKER"!! because it's just DONE TO DEATH. Get it? 

ON TO THE SHOW! 
(cue Circus Music)

Geesh, Holly got on enough make up for SLEEPING? Good lord!

BABY doodle dumpling! :) 

TRACY doesn't question Denise's reality? WTF. UGH I take it ppl are just going with the whole ruse.

Gotta go pick up my son.
SEE YA

Hey, Tony... Bite It.




So... Geary keeps it real for his Exit Interview in Entertainment Weekly:

“It was once very difficult for me realize that more than likely my obituary in the paper will read, ‘Luke of Luke and Laura fame died today.’ It was very upsetting when I came to that realization,” Geary, 68, recalls. “It’s not my favorite time of my life and I don’t think it represents me as a person or an actor. It’s kind of like whenever you are introduced they hall out a high school graduation picture. It can be irritating.”

He's so joyless. Thanks for whatever. We get it. And the fact you couldn't even "fake some joy" for your last hour with us? Well, FU. 


HEY! Guess what! Sonny got Avery back! Sabrina even said: THE BIRDS are singing outside.
She did say that.  BAHAHHAHAA. Birds. Singing. :crying:

Avery's like a sack of potatoes or a puppy. Here ya go!


Morgan and Ava "go to the bathroom" at the same time at the Metro during dinner and are gone ages. WTF.

Dante is being played "buzzed" very well by Dom. He looks loaded. He says how much he likes Val...and feels a 'connection" She says he's smart and ..blah blah..she stops him from kissing her. 

Holly says Ethan is missing. Whatever  The Voice on the Phone comes on and says: Wait until tomorrow. 

Yep. Ok I'm done for today


Bryan and Kelly Engaged

Morgan and Britt..on their way to wedded bliss!

Sunday Surgery: Around the Mulberry Bush



20150622 1441(24)
WHO ordered the pizza? You know I hate Anchovies!! 
Sunday again? What? And June is almost over? Good Lord, it's probably going to be snowing again before I know it. 
Any-Hoo, hello there. General Hospital? Yeah, that's why I'm here. Something is up, I swear because this show is just NOT doing it.  Is there going to be a regime change soon? Was their budget for editing and level-headedness suddenly slashed in half? There's been some shift--and I can't quite put my finger on when it exactly happened but geesh.
Someone do something. And quick. 


What do we have this Sunday? I did buy a giant watermelon from BJ's yesterday. I love watermelon :) It has rained here so hard--I can't even tell you. My Trombone Shorty fun at the Jazz Fest was ruined last night. BOO.  Hope you are dry and happy.

"I"m Kissing Donna Mills"

OMG..this is a FRIDAY??????????????????? Seriously!??????

WHY are Dillon and Lulu in the same room? Is it the old "We're full" shit? 
And they find Luke and Laura in 2 seconds, same hotel--and go in to see them. Door's open. LnL pull guns on them and say "freeze"! 

Valerie is there right when Dante throws the phone. WHY wouldn't he confront Lulu? They've been married FOREVER.....?? This is stupid. It's soap from the 1960s when anything was shocking. This is stupid. 

TJ's moving into Sonny's. Get a damn Kevlar vest buddy. 

Sabby and Michael. Boring

I sang a song on Periscope today (video app) called: "I'm kissing Donna Mills" for Ric. LOL.. 
Nina walks into the hotel room when they are in bed. Will she see them?

OMG, the Ava and Franco kiss was AWESOME........he got her lipstick on him and her gum in his mouth!! bahahahhaaa.


Charleston interrupts...which is appropriate. Godspeed to all those people. 

And So It Shall Be.




There are a few wonderful, meaningful and joyful things that have happened in my lifetime I can point to and say:  "yes, they got it right" Landing on the Moon, Segregation laws stripped in the '60's, Berlin Wall down, Apartheid gone,  "Irish Troubles' peaceful  RoevsWade,  and now Love Wins.
These are the times in history to savor. To celebrate. My brother can now marry WHERE EVER he wants. Period.
It's about time. 

I'm cryin' a little bit here. Sorry. Just so happy. 

And, I don't know why I put the moon landing in there other than that is the first huge thing I remember as a kid! (and being giddy happy in the middle of the night when Dad woke me up to watch!)
