|NO MORE TEACHER'S DIRTY LOOKS!|
Yes, you know I played that song in my head while Willow was saying SO LONG, KIDS!! Here in WNY we just got out of school this Friday so it was perfect.
Delco DAVE reminded me about Sunday Surgery, btw. LOL I have so much end of the 'year' paperwork to do I almost forgot about this! Eek!
Hash Browns today because I haven't had them in FOREVER. Yum.
TURKISH DELIGHT (you saw that coming, didn't you?? lol) Let's JUMP RIGHT IN, shall we?? DEV. WHY couldn't you have been a Spencer recast?? You certainly look the part. But NOPE. TPTB went with the Turkish kid and here we are. He got caught in Lulu's apartment supposedly looking for Sonny (??) and went to the PCPD where Sonny promptly got him out. He's now staying at the Manor Corinthos for the "summer" and Joss is all a flutter. I just hope to GOD that he loses that 'accent' quick. He told Carly he did a good American one, so get it on, kid. Thanks. Oh, one more thing. I do think the teen set could use another character so I'm not mad he's on the roster.
JERRY JACKS MENTIONS: Galore this week. First Valentin and Curtis, then Robert. I'm only putting this in here because you know I love Sebastian Roche and would love Jerry to come waltzing back into PC. He's very busy and very in demand though--so??
PARTY POOPER: What happens when you throw a party and no one likes the guest of honor? Well, we saw it close up and personal this week!! I think they did all this to get these characters together to discuss (in no particular order): Lulu's stupid online dating detective work, Mac's new commish job, Robert's WSB retirement and...Maxie's total self-absorption about DANTE. Ok, here's my take: Dante's been gone a hot-minute. I get we need some 'closure' on this whole thing but why now? Let him be gone awhile THEN bring all this up. Maxie just looks nuts going on and on about it.
Oh, by the way, Maxie found out he's in Ithaca. Right by me.
JET LAG: Oh boy. Kim. Let's talk about Kim. Fresh from her Oscar delusions, she's home and has that cammo-coat on that drives me nuts. Anyway, she's of course sad and miserable because Oscar's dead. She also now wants a baby and apparently, if Jules isn't going to give her one, she's going to ask Drew. Not sure I would have written this in that direction but-- meh. We shall see.
NUNINA: Cynthia Watros is now playing Nina and she seems good. She doesn't have Michelle's quirks --but who does?? I am of two minds on this. If she played Nina LIKE Michelle, I may have found it forced. Now she's a bit bland, but I'm hopeful. I can still 'hear' Nina in there so that's good. We shall have to keep watching to find out if the cray comes through too. By the way, are they going to put her next to Sasha? Because hell --they look nothing alike! Not that they have to but that was one cool thing about that casting.
COOL KIDS: So! It appears Char has redeemed herself--she got the "kindness award"-- and Aiden SHOULD have gotten the art award but...I'm not going to split hairs. I liked this setting; it's happening all over classrooms here. Great touch with flowers and photos. FUNNIER touch the fact Lulu and Friz gave her wine "For putting up with Nina" all year!! Pffffft. Yes, I've gotten wine as a gift in school (and once scotch by a parent that knew me well lol)--which seemed to be a matter of discussion on twitter. So.. great excuse for Willow to be late to her hearing because you don't miss that short of thing. I also think the principal is going to say she can come back next year by the way everyone was acting.
PS. I will not be happy if Charlotte is all of a sudden sunshine and sugar. Nope, she's a Cassadine damn it, and better act like one.
COURT ROOM DRAMAZ: So, Willow is a no-show so far, Shiloh has a new (and supposedly ruthless attorney) and Diane and Alexis discussed the finer points of how zexy Dr. Neal is. That's all you really need to know other than Diane is now worried Willow might have to give up the identity of Shiloh's baby even tho she said that wouldn't happen. Diane is also BY THE LETTER of the law lately, which ...I guess she always has been other than the Sonny stuff.
WUBSHELL WEEK: Nothing major but a lot of little things:
Josslyn found Dev in Lulu's apartment, PCPD came Sonny rescued him.
Kevin got his job back at GH
Neil had a daughter that died, probably with DOD
Willow is going to miss her court appointment
Shiloh's ready to roll in court and get his baby back
Mac took the commish job
Robert lost his WSB job
Maxie found out Dante is in Ithaca, NY
Carly's protein tests are high, more are needed to rule out birth defects
Jax and Nina clashed over Crimson
Curtis is head of security at Aurora, also working for Val to find dirt on Jax
I think DA lady finally left?
SCENE OF THE WEEK: I just loved KevLar in GH after Finn told him he was reinstated. It was true to life and so very touching. Plus, he mentioned Pizza and Champagne. Two of my faves.
RUNNER UP: And boo, but no photos available. When Lulu tore into Josslyn for not leaving when she found her door open, I was just amazed! It was perfect--and just the right amount of "Mom Rage" to throw around. Loved it.
PROP OF THE WEEK: Franco's invite to he and Elizabeth's wedding party. Hand drawn! I wonder who is the "artist' that does all Franco's stuff. hmmm might have to find that out.
HELL -TO -THE-NO PROP OF THE WEEK: Um, MOSS ?? In the kitchen?? In the center island? What tomfkery is this?!! Sam has it in her apartment--but this is even MORE baffling. And kinda scary. photo credit: @paula_30throad
HELL YES OF THE WEEK: MAC is COMMISH! Yes! Laura is the Mayor-- he's the commissioner.. ask Scott to be the DA and all we have to do is find a position for Robert!!
FOOD FUN OF THE WEEK: Carly and Jason talked what seemed like FOREVER in the kitchen (about nothing) but--the "Burger Play" was really fun to watch. She wanted that burger and fries so badly and Jason would NOT give it up. Cute scene and SBu and LW really did a great job with it.
NOT MY FAVE FASHION CHOICE OF THE WEEK: Ok, what is BECKY WEARING?/ Lordy AND IT'S SUMMER HERE. Why is it in the winter they have on cocktail dresses and now?? I mean Franco and Laura had straight up wool blazers on!
FUMBLE OF THE WEEK: Wow, the dialog folk got this wrong. Liz should have been telling Kim how she dealt with the sudden and tragic death of Jake instead of saying she had no idea how Kim felt losing a child. Yes, he came back alive, but damn, she still lived it in the moment. Or at least have said "I didn't lose a child to cancer but I did lose Jake in an accident and this is how I coped" Or SOMETHING. It was a good talk between these 2 characters in the fact they played up their friendship but ...eesh. BIG miss.
GIANORMOUS THANK YOU TO: @SoapJenn who lets me steal her photos on the weekly for this blog. Without which it would just be a big blob of words. You can always find spoilers on her site: Diagnosis Daytime!
That's a WRAP!! LIKE I said a lot of little things this week. That gave me more time to play with probs and wardrobe. You know I love them!! There was also a lot of food on set-- from burgers to veggie lasagna to cupcakes. Dev chowed down at breakfast too. I always think about the people that have to order it-it's catered I presume? Does the studio have a central kitchen that supplies food to shows? Hmmm, see these are the things I think about. Weird. But you knew that!!
2 days left of work for me then it's summer lovin!!
