Thursday Do Your Own Thing Day

Everyone has a day to do whatever they want! It's Wubby Hubby's birthday--and I work late as it is so ...no GH today!! 
Not that I'll miss it (hate to say)... Wow, this is a "lull' right now or what?  EESH. I really don't care about Sasha and well, we all know what I think of Peter.  The Ryan/Kevin show is good but predictable (he goes and talks to Kevin... "wife" comes home...Felicia is around now and then). My one shining light? Ava and Ryan. Don't ask me why--other than I love the possibility of two twisted individuals getting together. That and Kiki might die!! 

Ok, so in the spirit of Do you Own thing.. I'm going to present one character that was featured for awhile, then quickly forgotten because she had no ties to town. Anyone remember: 



V?? Or Venus --as we found out her real name was?? Lisa Cerasoli played her and I just loved the character. She was fun and spunky -- Chloe and Ned try to set him up with Simon. She was also involved with Jax. Here's a cute clip:

Everyone have a good one-- it's cold cold cold here now--we've had our first frost of the season! 
You know what that means...snow will fly soon enough!

Park Side Birthday

Laura sees Lulu on the net with Peter at the film fest. She wonders what's going on. Lulu's like: It's WORK, MA. Laura says "Make sure Dante knows you miss him". 

Spencer and Sonny....he knows Mike has Alzheimer's. Then he leaves... then Josslyn comes in. He saw on Social Media that she and Oscar broke up. I guess we will see Spencer with the "Grown" kids--still not being grown. Which I guess is ok by me. 
Josslyn: "Well, you haven't changed a bit".... Spencer "Well, you've gotten way taller" LOL 
He gave her a map of Paris...where he'd like to take her. 

It's Oscar's Bday, he's moping in the park. Cam comes around. He wants to quit the whole thing. OMG Oscar says he'll miss getting ice cream and going to the movies and COULD THIS BE ANYMORE BORING? This is SO DISNEY. I'm sorry but...angst is best served with Teens. As is Raw emotion.

Drew asks Peter "if I get my memories back, will I forget these last 5 years"??  Peter says I just dropped you guys off but probably.  Drew thinks he will forget too--and would forget Sam and Scout and Oscar...yada yada. 

Nina and Maxie. Nina's waiting to meet Sasha. She's afraid she won't come. 

Valentin wants to talk to Sasha. Shasha is like, I'm leaving..BYE. Val pleads Nina's case. Maxie overhears. Valentin pleads Nina's case. Maxie is all "awwwwww" in the shadows, thinks Val is being SO nice. After talking to Val, Sasha goes in to see Nina. Apparently, Valentin just said whatever magic words there was to say.

Too Old for Dolls

Laura makes dinner for Ryan... and has on a nice outfit for once...I loved her leopard cami.. Ryan knew all about the wedding/Leslie coming and the blizzard. She wants to dance. HE gives her a  "LOOK"...she says "what have you done with my husband" . He makes up an excuse he has to leave. 
Charlotte visits Gram with Lulu. She gets a doll but says she's too old. Luckily, Laura brought her a book too. Some french thing.  Lulu whines about Dante

Ryan and Kevin together in Ferncliff.  Good stuff.  He makes Kevin think he's sleeping with Laura lol. 

Drew and Franco talking on the docks about Harvey.. and making them swim. They talk about Oscar. Drew wants to get his memories back to help Oscar.  He tells Franco that he would have to turn in Jason and Sonny to get them back. "Would you do it"?? He asks. WHY the hell wouldn't Drew just go to the WSB and say: "Um, DA chick has my memories on a stick"?? 



Jason finds out that Marino was really 'dirty"... like that should matter.  He bought a house in the Hamptons. Jason wants to know why Scully picked a kid to kill Marino. 

Courthouse. Nelle messes up and says to the baby "You've grown a lot since I last saw you"..Carly jumps in: HOW DO YOU EVEN KNOW THAT?  huh?? Nelle says she saw it on the internet. Then Carly gets mad she gets computer access in jail!! ahahahaa.  So Nelle pleaded no contest. Gets the max. 

Liz and Sam (I still would love them as a couple). ..Liz wants to talk about Drew.  She says that Oscar is pulling away from his friends yada yada.. and Drew is upset. Then Sam says Drew came over when Jason was there. Liz does NOT approve. Sam says none of your biz. Liz says that people get trampled. They argue. Liz wants to get along for "Drew's sake".  They are going to make amends to do that. 



SPENCER is on TOMORROW!

Sunday Surgery: Memory Game

Yet another thrilling week....


Are you sick of my blogs yet? I noticed the other day I've made over 4500 posts. Yep-- 4500.  Going all the way back to 2009. That's a hell of a lot of Sunday Surgeries!!  Forgive me if I get rather--redundant at times.  You all know that I love the show. You all know I think the acting is top notch. You all know I've learned a hell of a lot how the writing, pacing and tempo can be affected by management.  That doesn't make any of this any easier.  So let's go.  

I'll have what Ava's having

Court Date

Friday! I'm here for once!! I may not last the whole show because I slept about 3 hours last night.

I'm steaming some fun shows now to soothe my soul. I think I told you I'm caught up on "The Good Place". I just got into "Dead Like Me" --which apparently, I missed in the early 80's??  I love it! 




Michael and Carly in court. Nelle is there ...WITH super blonde hair!! LOL..seriously? Hightlights in Jail?  Nelle taunts Michael about Jonah's death. Michael says 'you mean nothing to me" Nelle says "I know something you don't and when I tell you it will change everything". 
Chase shows up too. Bitches at her--just like Carly. 

KELLY'S; Outside: Krissy, Sam and Alexis. Molly did well on her GRE's Kristina isn't impressed. She asks Sam about Jason. Brad comes along with the baby and WOW--but Krissy looks sick when she sees it and leaves quick. ANVIL? Sure looked like one. Did anyone else see that!!?? 
Brad has Nelle giving him Wylie flashbacks. 

Inside: Chase and Jordan welcome Valerie to the PCPD. They had lunch together. 

DOCKS: Valentine pays Curtis. Curtis looks very handsome-- Curtis tells Valentin that Nina is meeting with Sasha. Then tells him to not try to get back together with her. Weird scene.

PARK: Liz, Franco and Aiden. Liz is concerned about Aiden at school. You know, if GH thought ahead, Molly could be Aiden's teacher--and working on her masters. I don't think we know what she went to college for. It would have been good.  The teacher left a letter for Liz in his backpack. Liz wonders if that's why Aiden didn't want to go to school. He says yep. 

THE METRO:  Sasha and Nina. Nina asks about the necklace then basically insults Sasha's mom saying "Maybe she didn't want you to have it". Nina suggests they go to Paris together. Sasha says she doesn't want  a relationship with her, she loved her mother (who's dead now). Nina botches the whole lunch. Ends up crying and asking if they can start all over. They are meeting again tomorrow. Michelle Stafford was pretty awesome in those scenes. 

END: Brad walks into the courthouse with the baby and sees Michael and Nelle in the hall. I have no clue why he's there. He must have said but I missed it. 

Krissy and Valerie and walking in the park..Krissy is saying she feels like a failure.

Time Travel Thursday!

Oh yes.. taken from the DecloDave playbook! Hop in the Wub Tub Time Machine and rewind!  I'll be off today, saving the world from Articulation disorders!! 


Real friendships are few and far between on soaps anymore-- at least ones we see on screen for more than 3x a month if we are lucky. What's been some of your favorite friendships over the years? 



The one that really stands out to me is Mac and Kevin. This story was happening around the time that Bosom Buddies was popular.  Check out the You Tube where Felicia coaches them on how to behave like "ladies" 
https://youtu.be/MJVrZJ6P2bE

Mac had better be a BIG part of this story --right along with Felicia, Lucy and Laura. He should know Kevin.. down to his boxers!

I was lucky...then...

HOPE YOU ARE ALL SAFE from MICHAEL!! 


Ok, so a bunch of people on Twitter said there'd be no GH today because ABC was doing all Hurricane stuff... but I SOMEHOW GOT IT around 2:03, enough to see Mike, Carly and Stella at Lunch..Drew came in too. 
THEN MY LOCAL STATION BREAKS in with a SHOOTING update. Ok, not for nothing, but we have multiple shootings a day. Come on, man... give me a break. 

Anyway, I guess I diagnosed Finn's dad with Lyme Disease!! Whoot!! I told you. I know my stuff!! I think Finn loved his Dad's wife and he was sleeping with her or something. I can tell.  I wonder if ChaseFord is his son!? Squee. 

Liz is talking with Kimmy about Oscar. Kim feels awful. 

Carly, Stella and Mike went to the daycare place, he liked it except for the food. 

Oscar is in the "park" in Studio City with Julian, Julian wants to know why he's not in school. Julian gives him advice. I'm glad they are 'really' outside but damn, that park is SO not Western NY....I don't even recognize half those trees. 
Cam comes over later and tells Oscar that it's stupid for him not to tell Josslyn. Oscar has a plan. So..later he texts Cam a picture of himself with another girl so Joss will see it. Josslyn is upset. 

So, Brainiacs Sonny and Jason discuss Spinelli's idea that they prove to the DA how "Bad her dad was" so ...she'll drop it? Huh? 

DA is trying to get Drew to turn on Sonny..."Just one memory and I can get a warrant". He says no. She said "What if I can help you get your memories back"?? Tells him about the flash drive.

GRAVEYARD GIRL


DA goes to the graveyard where CarSon is MOURNING MORGAN and puts letters on Daddy's grave. Trying to get the guilt going. Carly's having NONE of it. Oh, someone on twitter said she had her DAD buried NEXT to Morgan!!? HAHAHAA. 

Alexis and Laura!! WHOOTT! I love NLG-- and GF!! They have such history with the Cassadines.Alexis says she got her mom's watch fixed because it stopped at 1:11 or something (I missed the time) and it STOPPED AGAIN at that time after it was running!! Totally haunted!!

Oscar tells Josslyn he wasn't coming to see her, to get lost there is "no us". Josslyn keeps going on and on about Morgan dying and not having time!! LOL!! DERP!! He tells her to get lost. He didn't love her, yada yada. He did a pretty good job with pain, guilt and being "angry"... he really did. Credit for some growth.

Liz and Laura!! Laura says Kevin's been distant. Liz says Call him! 

Sam says she wants to take it slow with Jason--Um, what the hell they BEEN DOING??!! they are drinking wine and Drew comes in. Sam tells him Jason knows about Oscar-- because Oscar told him. Drew leaves. DA girl calls him to come over. 

Oscar talks to Alexis about minors' rights when it comes to medical treatment. Isays he's doing a school paper) She says there isn't many options, especially if the parents are acting in the child's best interest. Oscar says they aren't doing that. 


Joss goes to talk to Kim. She "knows Oscar is in pain and wants her to be in pain too--how can she help him"?? What ?? is Joss like 44 in this scene? Any other teen would be out sleeping with Cameron by now.

Happy Indigenous Peoples Day!

Yes, I have the day off-- and no...I'm not blogging!! I am taking my Aunt out to lunch (which takes awhile) and then I have to get home, walk Tillie and then get to the...(drum roll please) DENTIST!! 
Just a great, great day :eyeroll: 



Here's a photo of our local Seneca Nation, part of the Iroquois. They are having a big celebration in Victor, NY today. Ganondagon is a site that has been open for years but recently got a museum and information center. 

Since I'm not sure I'll be here tomorrow either-- I'll say in advance SORRY!! -- I'll also say that although JaSam is getting it on, looks like it's not going to actually happen. Not that I care one way or another but geesh. Where does Jason live again?? With Carly and Sonny?? I totally forget.  If he does live at the Metro, they never show it. 

By the way, I think one of the reasons we don't see Roxy a lot is that animals cost so much to appear on any TV show! That's why we haven't had dogs or cats as main characters. I was reading something online (I can't find it again but I'll look) that said even prime time shows aren't 'employing' animals like they used to. 



That brings us to our question of the day: What is your favorite TV animal/pet? Mine is Jack the Dog from Little House. Awwww. When he died on the show I about lost my mind. 

Have a good Monday. Hope you have it off and can enjoy.

Sunday Surgery: Harsh Truths

OH IT'S ON!!  Blocked AND Status to: SINGLE!! 

Oh boy..it was another one of those weeks where I'm pressed to find anything noteworthy. I usually remember at least PART of the week but only one scene really stuck with me and I'll get to that one first. 

I guess we are lurching to November sweeps? Lumbering? Plodding?  Maybe that's why everything feels like a treadmill. Anyway, thank goodness 90% of the actors are awesome on this show. If not for them, we'd be doomed.  

Grad some alcohol and buckle up-- this isn't a pretty read by any means.

Kale Smoothies

They're trying to make us like PETER... well, it's not gonna happen for this girl. NOPE. No matter what the Maxie banter is.  Oh, Peter is telling Maxie that Faison was mean to him as a kid. He threw him into the deep end of the pool and let him sink. Oy. 

Joss is trying to recreate the "Bench Anniversary" with Cam's help. She wants him to text Oscar. Oscar doesn't answer. Joss presses Cameron. He says there IS a reason he broke up with him.  "he's an idiot"

Oscar is at GH saying he doesn't want to do the experimental thing because he MIGHT DIE. DERP. Um, hey bucko, you ARE going to die.  He's trying so hard to do rage. 



Sam and Jason doing Legos. Yep. LEGOS.  It was...um... "charming". 

Griffin and Kiki end their make out session in the gym with Griffin putting the breaks on saying "I want to get to know you better". Code for: BORING

Aiden has a stomach ache.  Liz is freaking out about WHY he'd have a stomach ache. Franco says "Sometimes a stomach ache is just a stomach ache" 

Cam confronts Oscar about telling Josslyn. And Oscar blocks her from his MY FACE page and updates his status to "SINGLE"....

You know it's a boring day when "Kale Smoothies" are mentioned.  That was an Oscar dialog. 


END:  JaSam make out and it looks like clothes fly off Monday

A Shrink and A Kink

Carly's being bitchy to Ava. So's Jason. She said "I helped you escape"!! Carly says, yeah with a paperclip!! Jason also said he payed her back by getting her face fixed. Jason leaves. Carly's egging Ava on about Griffin sleeping with her daughter.  Then she tells her she can't have Avery 'tomorrow' because she's going to be with her Family. (Sneer). OMG, Ava needs to knock Carly the hell out!! 
Tomorrow is the Anniversary of MORGAN'S DEATH (god help us) and they are having a memorial and Avery's going. Carly then tells Ava she's going to tell Avery as soon as she's old enough how her mother killed Morgan. UGH. 

Griffin and Peter in the gym. Whatever. Peter leaves, Kiki comes in. Looks at Griffin. Griffin looks at Kiki. Kiki tells him she really did want to sleep with him and she wants him--even now. Um, where did this come from? She's all of a sudden hot for Griffin? Okay then! They make out and decide to take it where it leads. 



SO, Danny saw Jason. Danny made a family book in school. Yawn.

Felicia and Ryan in his office. She's going on and on about what a horrible person Ryan was.  She also reminds him that "HE" had a breakdown after Ryan died. Ryan is all: HMmmmmmmm/ Oh, yeah, that breakdown lol  She wants to write a press release together and he wanted to tell the 'whole story'.  She says "Oh you thought he could have been rehabilitated, didn't you?? Well, he was evil". So Ryan says they can get together and write the press release. All with a murderous glint in the eye. 

Ava comes in later. She tells Dr. Collins she has to talk about the rage she feels. She's tried to be a good person--- but people only judge her on her past. Now she's filled with rage, rage she needs to get rid of and make Kiki and Griffin hate her as much as she hates them. Ryan is loving this! "The way you described your rage was masterful". Ryan says she's really fearful and uses her rage as a force-field.  He asks her about why she would want to protect herself. She tells him about a nightmare where Avery sees her "as she really is"... scarred, evil.  She's so happy that Ryan doesn't lecture her about her revenge fantasies. She loved her session! Wants more! 


Nina telling Maxie she has a daughter. Maxie goes on and on. Like she hasn't heard this story before from 10 other Port Charles residents over the years. OMG then Nina asks PETER his advice about bio-mothers etc. Why is she talking to that scum ?? UGH
Nina calls Sasha and leaves a message "I'm your biological mother"!! 

Finn, ChaseFord and Daddy. What's wrong with Dad? I'm saying Lyme Disease since it responds to antibiotics.  We'll see if I'm right.  Finn won't have dinner with Dad and Chase. Chase is like "It's just a steak"!! Later, Dad is waiting for "Hamilton" (Giggle) he said he wants to patch things up. Finn shouldn't be mad that he moved on after his mother died. Finn moved on after his wife died. 
Finn gave Dad a prescription "here, this should take care of that'. UM, WHAT? No diagnosis? WTF. Well, that was ..weird. 


I BET: Ryan is going to kill Kiki "For" Ava... heh.

FEMA Test



Ryan's trying to keep "Handsy" Laura off him.. "I have a cold"--- "you should go see people, they missed you".  He about ran out the door to get to GH. Lulu comes to see Laura and talk about missing Dante. She said that Spencer sends hilarious Snap Chats to Charlotte and Rocco. 

Nina and Maxie talking about Dr. O being captured. Nina's looking at Sasha's photo.Nina then talks to Curtis about her. Shows him her necklace. He gets a phone call about the 2nd DNA test. 

Felicia wants to take a trip now to get away from Port Charles during the Chamberlain fest.  Maxie says they'll take a trip but in 'awhile". Oh she'll regret that! 

Kim and Drew tell Monica that Oscar has cancer. She says they'll fight it. 

Oscar offers his paper to Cam and tells him he has Cancer. Cam says to tell Josslyn. NOW. Oscar says NOPE. 

Carly and Joss talking about Oscar. She doesn't know why he broke up with her. Carly's giving her a pep talk about it and telling her to be strong. She's staying home from school.  Later she calls Cam to stop by. Says Oscar dumped her... he's like: really?!!  She wants to know why.
NOTE: A REAL old-timey soap would have Cameron totally take advantage of Josslyn's distress. HE WOULD. That's what SOAP TEENS DO.
Josslyn knows Cam knows. She wants answers. 


STUPID FEMA TEST..it froze on my TV and I had to reboot. 

Carly wants to meet with Ryan..he grumbles at her, then apologizes.  Carly wants to talk to Kim about Oscar and Joss. 

Felicia: Can I talk to you Kevin?? Ryan: HELL YA!! LOL He takes her into his office. Squee! Ryan pretending to be Kevin around Felicia? I'm so here for this!! 


NEWS: Hayley Erin is leaving GH due to her pilot getting picked up on FreeForm. Ergo, bye Kiki. Will she be the one Ryan kills?? Hmmm... 

Tuesday, October 2, 2018

Activity Tuesday!!

Oh, that DECLODAVE--coming up with something awesome to do on my days not 'in office'!! Not only can you leave your show impressions below, you can also partake in a fun mind-expanding exercise!! 

The question today is: What if you could bring back one GH character that has died (and even in the real life person is gone, you can count them too) --how would it change the canvas today? This means they NEVER died. So, what would life look like for the Q's if Dawn hadn't died but lived in Port Charles the entire time. 


Have fun! I'd do one but my brain is burning out and I have half the day to go!! I would love it if Georgie never died though. Wonder if she'd be married to Michael or something. Hmmmmm...

Horses of Courses!

Diane has an assistant-- his name is "Henry". He's not really memorable. He points out to the DA that she needs to excuse herself since it was her father. Jordan says she doesn't have to yet (oh really??) Anyway, Jason was in Kindergarten when that Marino guy was killed. DA Says: "YOU'RE GONNA TALK "to Jason. AHAHHAHAA. OMG. Good luck Pip-Squeak. He says nothing as per usual. She tried being "tough"...then "nice" then tried to get his sympathy. 

Valentin doesn't want Nina to go ahead with the divorce.  Lulu talks to Nina about the hard choices of divorce. 

Ryan is trying hard to act like a human. Lucy thinks he's sick...fever. Lucy's going to get him soup. 

Mike wants to talk to Carly about "what happens next" without Sonny around. He wants to go to adult daycare. Carly says good idea.
Carly then goes over to make a phone call and Ryan is tapping on the table--SOS. She turns around and is like: Kevin! You're tapping "Help Me"!! Just like Ferncliff. He says it's a reflex because she had asked him to look into it. 


Curtis and Valentin are at GH--Valentin opens the envelope. That horse girl, Sasha. She looks just like Britt, who is her cousin so...I guess she is? Valentin wants to wait for another DNA test, Curtis is like: NOPE.  Valentin says ok and he'll tell Nina but Curtis can't tell Sasha yet. 

Ryan calls Ferncliff and they say "Ryan still thinks he's Kevin" so he says to increase his dosage of sedatives. He pulls out cord to strangle people with. 

END: Mike remembers where the gun is and tells Jason "No one will ever find it, I threw it in the Hudson River". 

Laura is home.
