Good episode! Good recap. Good LORD, Todd and Blair ...

I think Todd is one of those characters that either you get him, or you don't. And if you don't get him within a few episodes, you probably never will. I also think both Todd and John have been the infusion this show desperately needed. More facets, more sparkle.

Not having watched OLTL that much, I can tell that RH is playing Todd's guilt perfectly in character. Id Todd capable of heinous things? Yes. In the end, Todd will do what he needs to do. But my impression of Todd is that he is one of those people who if there is only one cow pattie in a 50-acre field, he'll step in it. With his best shoes on. Roger Howarth is brilliant in his portrayal of someone who is genuinely conflicted with his badness, but not really... but sometimes a lot. Which,(circling back around) unlike Sonny ... makes Todd a perfectly gray character. I adore Sam. I'm pissed at what Todd did. But dammit, he entertains me anyway. Even though it may bug some, Kelly Monaco suffers hearing loss from a diving accident, and so she modulates her voice to avoid doing what many with hearing loss do, shout. She gets a pass from me, and I would kill to have her body.

Hate stroke would certainly be appropriate. Where was Jason's desire to help before the baby died? Sam's already walked through the hell and is coming out on the other side. Why does she need his self-absorbed ass now? His motive has not changed. He's trying to do that which will make him feel better about himself. Any benefit Sam would get would be ancillary. I have to disagree that Sam "deliberately tried to get rid of his infant son, twice." There's simply no truth to it.

"Considering Sam doesn't know Heather did anything wrong, she was a little mean to her when she went to say hi." A little mean? She should have thrown a vase at her. Considering Heather has done nothing but threaten Sam ever since she forgot to deliver the letter to Steven Lars, and wish evil sh*t on her, Sam doesn't owe Heather anything but contempt. Especially now. Liz and Ewen are so much pretty! They may not have the raging chemistry some couples have, but I totally buy their affection for each other.

"Do the show or I'll never speak to you again and I will leave forever." Well then ... buh-bye, Kristina. And have fun serving up burgers to people because, you may leave, but Mommy and Daddy's dirty money is staying.

Good article. I agree with BN, and I hope they leave an opening for JC to return. I've enjoyed the recent family interaction with Patrick, after a 3-year waste of potential. And yes, Tea, please stop rubbing your belly.

I didn't like the storyline at first, but now I find it to be both UCG and not really so far-fetched. I preferred MW as Kate, but I think Kelly's rocking the current material, lol. She looks totally mortified and strung-out as Kate fighting Konnie ... in that hilarious kind of way. I giggle every time she transforms and paints her lips up like a chicken's butt.

Regarding Sam's story, if you know when your last period was it's not difficult to estimate how far along someone is. I'm not sure what is meant by "no symptoms," but no period when it's supposed to happen is a big symptom. I never suffered a day of morning sickness with either of my kids. Missed period; stomach grew. That's it. The carrying around of the pee stick is always silly. I've seen this done on other soaps. In fact, on Passions, Whitney's pee stick made more appearances in a solid week than half the cast. I'm going to guess this is how the show creates a small window of update for viewers who don't tune in every day. As far as Sam's waffling - what if/can you/ I can't ... I'd be doing all that and more if I were in her shoes. She needs to feel confident about where her partner is with all of it. I'm sure she doesn't trust just her own emotions right now. And consulting Jsson, even multiple times, is the right thing to do. They are partners; this will affect them both ... which was the same argument used against Robin when she decided to plan her course of action on her own. Besides, it's not like this is a situation she put herself into, and about which she is having second thoughts. Sam had no time to mentally prepare for something like this, so watching her go through the steps of processing it on screen doesn't bother me so much. In fact, I'd prefer that to the many things that happen offscreen for which we are expected to fill in the blanks.

I love that you love music to that extent. It says a lot about you as far as I'm concerned, because-because of music, I would have a hard time deciding if someone told me I had to lose a sense, would it be sight or hearing, it would be a difficult decision for me. There is so much music I would NEVER have been exposed to had it not been for file sharing. My heart broke when Napster was shut down. ShareBear was good for awhile then it was commercialized. I could never make sense of IRC, couldn't follow it or keep up with it. Too uncomputerized I guess. But...fortunately I have a computer nerd as a son. Download a bit torrent client and hit btjunkie.com. ;)
I stumbled across this (bullshitIwentlookingforsomeguidance) and found this website personally helpful. I guess I'm still not convinced that I have what it takes to be a published author. Anyway, you may glean some nuggets from it as well if you start feeling disorganized like I often do: http://www.peacecorpswriters.org/pages/depts/resources/resour_writers/100daysbook/day001.html Are you read.set.go? I'm looking forward to this year. At the same time I'm torn because I'm finally motivated to go back and edit Ontario Call. I've developed some new hooks for it that I think will raise the bar on it.
Wishing you a good NaNoWriMo this year. I'll be pecking away alongside you. Your writing place looks conducive to creation and calm. I should make some tidy-ups at my own. Perhaps the lack of clutter distraction will allow thoughts to flow more easily, lol. You remain a source of inspiration to me, Bib. :)

Even though I haven't edited the novel I wrote during National Novel Writing Month in November 2008, I'm going to do this thing again. I have stories to tell, and an unknown expiration date, so I'd better get crackin'. To echo the NaNoWriMo sentiment, I'll "get it on paper now;... Continue reading

This totally looks like something I will be adding to my Thanksgiving table next month. I've been eyeballing the acorn squash at the store lately; they're looking good. I've never cooked them but my mother-in-law (the kids' grandma) used to bake them the simple way with just some butter and brown suger, and they were delicious. This will be awesome. I do both a turkey and a duckling (at the sons' request) so in making these I will simply cut down on the size of the turkey I buy, and I won't make separate dressing. Thank you for sharing this!
I need a different avatar pic. I'm looking at yours and I'm jealous.

Well, I'm not sure if you missed some stuff or not. I can't remember what I posted and reposted...or not...during the great Vox Vacate. But, Mr. U got on an airplane and flew to my city to go on this mini-vacation with me, to see a part of the U.S. he'd never seen, and meet my family for the first time. Actually, he'd met my sons and grandson, but not my sister, and certainly not my cousins. He's an adaptable, non-complaining, fun-loving sort, and my family is a typical southern hospitality bunch, so he blended in like he'd always been there. I love my family so. Anyway, it was a nice change of pace, a fun thing to do that didn't involve dogs. Also, I did move the blog over that you were hoping I would. I still have to go back and edit some posts, finish some posts, etc (I put place holders in so things would stay somewhat chronological). It's at WordPress and requires a password to read...because of the frankness involving others (lol). You've got the addy and password. ;)

You are such a cute person! I'm always a sucker for your dry humor. I got my typepad halfway set up, so come see me. Or teach me how to add friends to this whizbang blog site. :) Scorp.

As far as goodbyes to summer could possibly be good. Even though I love the autumn, I always hate to see summers go. To me, that feels like the end of the year, not December 31st. My Canadian boo flew down and we drove further down to my sister’s houseboat... Continue reading
