  1. Episode Discussion: TFGH

    Mainly harmless, honestly. Annoying. Loud. Unaware. Really, really unaware. But harmless. Let’s just say if she were to spend an evening with Mother Theresa, Gandhi, and the Pope, she’d dominate the conversation, talk about herself for 90% of the evening, and, unironically, declare, “You are all so lucky, because I know so much about spirituality.”

    Why are you triggering my PTSD? WHYYYYYYYY?????!!!!
  3. Episode Discussion: TFGH

    Oh man. I should never have come back — I’m already triggered — ha! That’s why there’s an executor of a will. The assets of a will can take decades to play out. Depending on what state the will is effecutuated in, it can be up to 90/100 years. Google “rule against perpetuities” and you’ll get a state-by-state breakdown at some sites. Basically, according to the old common law, you can tie up a will for all those who are alive at the time the person whose will it is dies and THEN another 21 years. So, you designate money in your will for all grandchildren born of child alive at the time of the testator’s (the person whose will it is) death or for all great-grandchildren of grandchildren alive at the time of the testator’s death. If, say Edward Quartermaine wanted to give money to “all his grandchildren” but he has an affair with a General Hospital nurse and he has a 1-year-old child at the time he dies, then that portion of the money has to be set aside for the 1-year-old to grow up and possibly have any children. So, basically, the money that could possibly go that grandchild or great-grand-child or great-great-grandchild (if there are great-grandchildren alive at the time of death) gets set aside and one waits out the time period to see how that money is disbursed. That’s why a good trust and estate attorney is important. They talk through with the person to see what they want to give right away and have the person understand that other moneys might get tied up for decades upon decades upon decades to come. It’s all in the wording of the will. Oh — that’s why Ron Carlivati’s will for Edward Quartermaine sucked. RC went to a decent enough law school. And he still wrote a honking piece of shit of a will. He might as well have wiped his ass with his law degree. All because he wanted some lame ass race to 51%. (By the way, if you’ve ever wondered why Tori Spelling pops out more kids than most can imagine ever having, I’m sure Daddy Spelling put a provision in his will that all grandchildren get “X” amount of money. So, while Tori herself was limited to $800K, the more kids she pops out, cha-ching! Just a hunch on my part.)

    Who got a cake with their name spelled wrong?

    Did they really kill off Kiki Jerome? I thought killing young, pretty (preferrably blond) 20-somethings was a Guza thing. If the actress was leaving, why not just send her off screen? If it’s for storyline purposes, do we really need to be “entertained” by senseless violence against young women? Is anyone actually find that tantalizing or engaging or engrossing? So, Kiki’s story for the last year was getting sexually harassed, facing her harasser in court, and then getting killed by a serial killer. Great take on #MeToo, GH and ABC.

    Anna never "banged Casey the Space Alien's earth twin." I mean, *I* thought he was cute, and I wouldn't have minded if Anna and Shep Casey has hooked up. But they didn't. Nor did she hook up with the actual alien himself. It was just Duke and Robert during her first stint on GH.

    I’m just disappointed this show isn’t going directly to “Kiki goes to HR.” Rather than make this a long, drawn out ordeal, show it like how it should be dealt with. How it would be dealt with in today’s age. The show shouldn’t be sending the message that a sexual harassment victim should legitimately be afraid of reporting completely inappropriate conduct. They should not be telling a story of a young woman NOT knowing when a line has been crossed, when it has been crossed as blatantly as it has here. They should not be telling a story of a young woman not reporting for fear of retaliation. No hospital — at least no hospital that doesn’t want a discrimination administrative complaint — is going to find against Kiki. Either her claim will be substantiated, or it won’t. If it isn’t, they’ll separate Dr. Letch from Kiki. If this is the third, fourth, fifth time Dr. Letch has been reported, it’ll be time for a big ol’ sit down. No alleged accuser is going to get railroaded. No alleged victim should be in fear of losing their job, etc. Report it. Have safeguards put in place. Bing, bam, done.

    Why do Liz and Franco sleep in the same bed as Lulu and Dante? I mean, right? Are the two couples down on their luck, and sharing an apartment — one couple lives there in the day and other the night? Or is the show’s budget just that cheap?

    As far as a 6-year-old Emma could have traveled when she wandered away from Kelly's that one time. I think they were putting up barriers 10 miles outside the city for that.

    Wait, Homey say what about someone — who isn’t 14 (or 21 and in arrested development) — reading The Fountainhead?!!!!! This? Explains SO much. Just when I thought my opinion of LW couldn’t get any lower.
  11. GH In The News: The PC Press Club

    Sure, put up the picture of Tristan and Maurice. That'll get me titillated. Because I didn't cut school back in 1988 to see who would get to Anna first, Robert or Duke (the answer was Robert). Because I didn't tape gravelly reception that semester in 1991 just so I could at least hear what was happening with Anna and Robert. Because I didn't root -- for years -- and religiously watch this d@mn show just to see Anna and Robert. Nope. None of that happened. Idiots. Catering to their own freakin' egos. And not having one scintilla of understanding as to what their 18-162-yr old (sorry, but daytime shows skew older, no matter how much TPTB salivate over the potential younger viewers) mainly female audience wants. So not here for the boys' club. So not here for Robert to be in Sonny's orbit. So not here for the crumbs. Catch ya on the flip side, RXS.

    I’m catching up on Hulu, so I’m a bit behind. At least x-ray the darn thing. Did this storyline already end? Shhh, don’t spoil it for me. ;)

    I have no i ..de ... idea to whom you are referring ;)

    Hey now. Just no.

    Crap, to leave up or edit with a n/m? I’ll just say that I don’t think LW is malevolent. Or mean-spirited. But she has a toddler’s sense of self and others. And that’s not to say she’s simple minded. She’s not. No brainiac, either, but not dumb as a door post dumb. But she has absolutely no sense that the world does not revolve around her. And not in a grandiose way but in a sincere “what? You’re not interested in what happened to me during spring break of 1992? That’s not riveting to you?” There are a couple types of people whom we all sit next to on planes. There’s me, who’d prefer to pretend that you don’t exist and I’d prefer it if you’d pretend that I don’t exist, either. Then there are the people who chat you up. And of those, there are two subgroups. There’s subgroup A, where they ask you questions about yourself and engage in a back and forth. And there’s subgroup B, who seizes on this opportunity, and they truly believe, they are bringing entertainment to your world by talking about themselves wholly and completely. Because if they are the most fascinating person to themselves, they can’t conceive why you wouldn’t think they are the most fascinating person on the planet as well.
