I originally posted this May 27th, 2008 right after I started watching AMC again. It seems fitting to repost it here!
DEAR GRANDPA, Yes, I am watching the program!
When I was a kid, we hated missing school. Not because we liked school all that much, but because it was boring to be home when no one else was around.
There were no computors, no VHS, no DVDs, and even TV consisted of channels 2 (CBS), 4 (NBC), 7 (ABC), 11 (WPIX) and 13 (PBS). Later on,
The only sport I follow is football, pro football to be exact and I absolutely LOVE it. Giants aka Big Blue aka Big Blue Wrecking Crew are my team and well, you know that person that watches sports games going crazy for their team, always on the edge of their seat, jumping up without any notice to either do happy dances or scream around the room, shameless, loud, proud and ridiculous? Yeah, that's me.
If I can't be at the game, I am sure as hell bringing the game atmosphere

I am firmly convinced that the reason all soaps struggle these days is because of a fundamental change in writing and cast turnover. Once upon a time - these "stories" were investments in characters, families and - like neighbors we loved - issues everyone cared about.
If it took two years to find out who someone's biological father was so that the groundwork could be laid to introduce a family, social issue, or tie in the rest of the story canvas - we watched faithfully
We all have characters on our soaps that we love, ones we are indifferent to, ones we love to hate, etc.. but there is usually a group for ones that we despise - seething, fire of a thousand suns, hatred for a character that we know is fictional but just seem to piss us off by their actions on screen or the words coming out of their mouths and it makes us go nuts!
I watch AMC and GH and on both there are a few that fit the bill but for this entry I am going to focus on the ever

It is amazing to me how dumb people are. Especially people with money. I am currently watching The Real Housewives of Orange County and one of the housewives, Lynne, was treating her daughters to a spa day. And here is the reasoning behind it, "The girls are stressed. Raquel and Alexa have to wake up by 10 instead of sleeping til twelve and they also have to wake up for the cleaning lady. They're so stressed out." ARE YOU FREAKIN SERIOUS?????? That's stress? Hey Lynne there's a war going
