Sunday Surgery: Gedstern Attending Physician!

Well-- I am off for the weekend, so I am leaving the Surgery in the capable hands of Geddy!! Have fun.  New Poll will be  up Tuesday for your fun.


Have you seen the "You Know You Grew Up In" Facebook pages for cities and towns all over the country? They've gone viral.  I'm very active in the group for my hometown and thought it would be fun for you to post your thoughts about growing up in Port Charles. Post away in the comments!  I'll start.


"You Know You Grew Up In Port Charles, NY When...."


One or both of your parents worked at the hospital and you got to go to the annual reading of the Christmas story. Especially when Dr. Steve Hardy read it.


You had a worm farm and tried to sell them to others to make compost.


You found yourself on the run from the mob, and if you were lucky, your Mom had a carpet bag full of everything you could possibly ever need.


The Fourth of July picnic was a big deal at the park.


Your parents took you to the Nurses Ball every June, where funds were raised for AIDS awareness and research.


Ruby was always at the diner, ready to take care of your boo-boos.


GO!

Carly might be a character we love to loathe but my god, LW is one amazing actress and gorgeous even when acting like she is in agony.

I would like to see LW in more scenes with GH's other to rocking ladies, NLG and JE.

for such an attractive lady she makes some ugly faces.

Batgary said...

I wouldn't mind Carly if the character would grow some. She is mostly the same lady with a chip on her shoulder who slept with her mother's husband. I thought there was some growth with Jax, but she can't let go of Sonny

Frisco..nicely said.

She is simply amazing as an actress.
Would like to see her interact with women too, however, is that Carly's style? Women friends?
She doesn't get along with other women. My Carly likes to be front & center. (which is fine by me)

I started watching "Guiding Light" because of Laura when she played Cassie. (I was a huge 'Rassie' fan...Prince Richard and Cassie). I remember reading an article once and Laura talked about how she hated when a character was going through something traumatic and their makeup and hair looked like something on the fashion runway. So, she insisted on going without makeup and having her hair styled during the heartbreaking scenes in which Richard was dying. It made it very real and it made me appreciate her as an actress.

Hope said...

I cant think of any thing clever to say right now but the ones that are here are great!!! ;o)

Frisco said...

My2Cents2 - I agree, Carly is not one to have a lot of women friends but it does not mean she can not have a few scenes with more of the female cast. No one said they had to get along. A Carly vs Tracy rivalry / cat fight could be dynamite!! I wonder if Carly still owns any ELQ stocks? hum!!!

My2Cents2 said...

Frisco....I LOVE cat-fights!
Who better than Carly? lol

YES she does own some shares with ELQ.
She mentioned it the first day Michael went to work there
