|ALL THAT CHITTER-CHAT!! Makes me As Mad as a BAT!|
The week was also interrupted by more horrible news on the home front which makes the soap world seem small. So very small. I guess I do look at it as entertainment that is much needed during this time.
My son made banana muffins last night (his first try at baking) so I'm having one. Let's not think about anything but our shallow stories, shall we? (Just for a moment or two!!)
We got a lot of little talks this week. You know "Stay away from.... (fill in the blank)"
Carly and Liz have a "chat"
Patrick and Jake have a "chat"
Sonny and Paul have a "chat"..
Lulu has a "Chat" with Dante and Valerie.
Val gets "chatty" right back.
Later in the week, Lulu had a chitty chat with Maxie who was busy chatting on the phone and didn't notice Lulu left to go have another chat with.... Val and Dante at the PCPD. What are Val and Dante up to? Why chatting about..going on a date!!!!!
YES!! A DATE!!
So, Lulu gets so mad she's going to tell Jordan about the fact that Val and Dante slept together. Only--nah, that did not happen. Maxie talked her out of it. So, no movement there. None.
Anna and Maddox were on the docks...chatting. About her therapy. The therapy he basically wants to blackmail her going back to. I know they are trying with this but. Snoozah Carlos is alive now. It's only a matter of time before that gets outed. Are we supposed to like the Doc? Is he really a baddie? whatever.
Chat: Hey, didn't I use to sleep with you? Like..a LOT? Even when you knew what I did to Michael? Well, then STHU. Thanks.
Liz is SICK TO DEATH of Laura chatting, that's for damn sure.
Liz, after a number of chats , tries to give Jake back his ring. Jake doesn't want it however, and they remain solid. He even writes her a cutsie note telling her how much their future means to him. Awww. Liz is so happy...for now.
Other than Mac, my fave thing this week was Nina's make over and Julian's face when he saw her! It was priceless. They chatted about the budget. I am happy she's putting her own money into the magazine. Maybe she'll just buy it from him.
Monica and Tracy chat about the Nutcracker Gala for the Hospital. We know it's going to be for Toys For Tots. Monica goes to Ava and tells her to donate paintings "Or Else". How Monica got to go out on the town is beyond me!! She got to be all chatty this week with 2 people!
Paul and Ava didn't chat, they just almost did it on top of the gun shipment that Ava is keeping for him at her art gallery. Get plot there, guys. Smuggling guns. Great idea.
Carlos, who can't walk around town like a normal person, is suddenly in Sabrina's ultrasound appointment to chat with her about the bambino. Later, Michael comes in and they see the baby for themselves. Unfortunately for Sabrina, later when she had a chat with Felix (in the HALLWAY), Carlos overhead it was indeed, his baby.
Ergo, these two chat on the docks (where else??!) and Carlos is all: YOU are coming with me!! NO! NO! I am not! I must not GO with you@@!!!
Paul chatted with Carlos and told him to stay far away from Sabby. Not because he cares about her, nope. He's out for himself. I think Carlos had a lot of chats this week.
I missed this chat because of the news interruptions. Wah. I wanted to see Diane.
Hayden had a 'secret alley-way chat" with Curtis. How can you tell it's secret? She has on a trench and a hat. LOL. I mean COME ON. It's like she's auditioning for Columbo. Anyway, he's going to find the shooter. I personally didn't see this, again--news interruption. I was puzzled as to who Curtis even was! Someone on Twitter told me it's a friend of Shawn's.
Turns out that Jordan knows Chad too! She sees him through the window of Kelly's and is like "CURTIS"? and leaves. So, there's that!
IDEA: Hey, writers. Somehow make Jordan a Ward. (remember them?) Then, she and TJ could get some ELQ stock and you know, be woven into a family. And, oh, if you're going to have the ELQ story continue? ACTUALLY SHOW SOME ELQ STUFF.
On Friday, Alexis has a chat with Sam about the whole Jason thing. She asks her a series of questions about why she's doing all of this. Why not get a divorce and marry Patrick? Why? WHY? Well, Later On...
Guess who wants to have a CHAT now?
Please note the black and white blouses the girls have on. I mean..please. Literal much?
AND FINALLY, THE BEST PART OF THIS WAS THE MAC-CHAT!
I knew he was coming, but it's still out of the blue. I guess because Robert and Robin are going to make an appearance this month? He was suddenly in the hall, helping Anna because he's been 'tailing' her. Welp. I'll take whatever I can get. Welcome back Mac Daddy!
SCENE OF THE WEEK; If you didn't find Sonny singing to this adorable gumdrop wonderful, then you sir are just a walking corpse.
PROP OF THE WEEK: The make-up kit used to transform Nina. It was magical.
FACE OF THE WEEK: Nina seeing herself all made-over. It was so joyful.
This week was interrupted a lot for the horrific news in CA. That was enough to put a damper on everything, :(
There wasn't a lot of movement. Sam "figured things out" and is going to confront Liz next week. The Gala is coming. So are Johnny, Robert and Robin. Jason Thompson is leaving to go to YR. (no shock there) We also have rumors rampant about GH being cancelled. ( To the point of the head of ABC daytime trying to squash them on Facebook.)
And the Soap Wheel Turns.
I missed Soap Net this week.
Side Note: a patient of mine in the early 90s was an 85 year old lady that had suffered a stroke. I saw her everyday in rehab. She'd yell at me: WHY!! HELLO! IT'S MY CHIT-CHAT GIRL!! LOL So, as a speech pathologist, I know my chit-chat. Yes, I do.
