Somedays liberal, somedays libertarian sodomy-loving fun-obsessed Chicagoan - probably the embodiment of Ralph Reed's worst nightmare but shockingly kind AND good for the nation.
Interests: film, television, spending ridiculous times lusting after gadgets, british tv, thinking about writing longer stuff than this

I never realized how much I like Thorsten Kaye because even though this sounds like the worst idea ever, I also can't wait to see this play out.
"that I'm doing the best I can to protect my family [hits himself in the chest..." That's the international sign language symbol for one's family, you know....because that's where most people shoot their son.

Okay, I'm not sure about this Celia -- but there is nothing more soapy (and AMC in particular) to me than a rich girl kept away from society by an overprotective guardian. It's so AMC that I often forget and think it's Brooke's back story.
Is anyone else disturbed at how hot that picture of beaten up AJ is?

Awesome - if there was a definition of 'pure joy' in a text book, this could be Figure 1 to illustrate it. Though I understand 'different strokes for different strokes', I'm too engrained in love of sports that I often just can't get those who don't see the appeal. That inability to understand is doubled (at least) looking at this picture -- how could you not want to feel that way? (I am completely thrilled by proxy for your win.)

This is one of those awesome ideas that almost doesn't seem as awesome as it is because it seems so freaking obvious after somebody has done it that you can't believe somebody hasn't done this awesome thing before.* Looking forward to watching this. * If there's an asshole-way to read that sentence, please don't. I mean the opposite.

Was this: "the dark, seductive lady who acts as DM for a group of younger players" ever truly something that people on the outside tried to convince non-gamers was happening? Because if so, I'm surprised gaming wasn't more popular because of it.

Resolved: Anybody who has a problem with former NFL players abusing prescription drugs should probably not watch the game, at least as a comfortable non-hypocrite, because your fandom is part of creating the atmosphere for the pain they are probably trying to suppress.
Yeah, I'm hoping that Adam is not doing well because he's been feeling super guilty that Stuart was murdered when it should have been him, and then it will turn out that David saved Stuart and then Adam will be all better and get his happy ending with Brooke after all. (This would, of course, be ridiculous if the show was ending, but since it is, bam, happy ending. The ending of shows -- both AMC and OLTL have really made me think a lot about the genre in general and how 'endings' work when you have a story that doesn't usually end -- and then it does. It's sort of fascinating, even if it doesn't make losing 80+ years of combined history worth it.)

Great minds think alike. I read the same thing. Maybe "great" isn't the right word there. However, and I say this as a fan of The Game for the kind of TNG episode it was (entertaining, light, and fun) -- do we really need a spoiler alert that it would be #1 on the list. Again, no offense, but it's kind of a given. The only way it wouldn't have topped the list is if Bart Simpson was making it. "What's going on here? Am I destroying these triangles or trying to assemble them? What's does this button do? Now my ship is pooping more triangles.Oh, no. I won a free game."

I wouldn't have caught the thing with the shoe if I'd seen it -- but as a callback, it does seem like a show I wouldn't recognize. Speaking of brain damage, I saw a promo where Carly and Jason get into an accident. If Garin Wolf has Jason Morgan waking up thinking he's Jason Quartermaine, I'm gonna be tempted to start watching this show again -- but only if just drives Carly CRAZY!

Jeez, Sonny don't be so modest -- you got one kid shot -- and you shot one. Don't sell yourself short. Mallory, you are aware that there's a whole show based on interventions, right? Or can you not deal with real life pain? (That's my problem with it.)
The baby is named Lucy like... the replacement baby Billy Abbott bought for his sad wife over in Genoa City. Weird. (as if that's the worst, least original thing about this)

Best wishes to your mom and thanks for informing me about this. The only other person I've ever heard about celiac disease from is Elizabeth Hasselbeck (yes, I watch The View sometimes; don't judge) -- and given how wrong I think she is on nearly everything else, it's always gone in one ear and out the other -- and I've probably been guilty of labelling it in the fad diet category (probably because someone was trying to sell a book about it) The site is exactly what a website like that should be - informative, easy to navigate, and chock full of information. I like feeling educated/less ignorant.

Last night, I went to see John Water's Christmas show and during it, he spoke of many things - including all the things he wanted for Christmas (the most depraved of which I longed to give him) and the things he wanted to give his fans for Christmas (the most depraved of which I longed to receive); however, that list has now been replaced with instead a seat at that table. Also, a plate of bacon.

New to Batgirl recently and am glad to see others mention it because I've thought it's been great. Really glad I picked up Osborne last month too and also glad you mentioned it. My other favorite thing I'm reading is Knight and Squire (and pretty much anything Paul Cornell does.)

Just for the record, in case anybody in charge is paying attention, I would watch episodes of the Mallory-paraphrased version of GH. Multiple times. And I would buy things from every advertiser (except perhaps the feminine hygiene products I would have no use for.)

This comes as no surprise to me. I moved to Louisville for a year right out of college (while my boyfriend interned at the Actors Theater there*) and was shocked to find when looking for employment that in Kentucky "tobacco-smoking status" was (and still is) a protected class along with race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, disability, and familial status. I can only imagine how the GLBT community in Kentucky trying to get employment non-discrimination legislation passed must feel every time they look at that list. That said, if "tobacco-smoking status" is protected, then, at least, one would imagine that "but being gay is a choice" isn't an argument that holds much water. * That's more detail than was necessary, but whenever I say I moved to Louisville after college, a "why?" nearly always comes out before I finish the sentence.
I always wondered how they would handle that. I think I read somewhere - for some soap with a similar situation that they would always put people heads in front of the date so it was 19.... I actually thought it was Isabella/Brady, but it could be many, many more -- though it could be Noah Newman on Young and the Restless visiting his dead older sister's grave; Noah is now a strapping, of-legal-age recast, and I remember when I found it weird that it was okay to find his DAD hot because they'd recast him. Back to Days, I did a little research and found out that Brady has turned into a mean drunk and buried Vivian alive (irony!) in a sarcophagus in the Kiriakis mausoleum. You know why? Because she was the one who put Isabella's remains in the pet cemetery so there would be room for her next to Victor (who is now her husband) (Thank you for commenting because I really wasn't ready to give Days another post - but I also had to add this addendum.)
