Y&R - Weds/Thurs - Eh



Gloria Swanson



Wants Her



Face Back



You Fucking



Bitch

What Gloria did Wednesday, calling Jack to make him feel guilty for simply honoring his father's wishes, was nothing short of pure hatred. That was just cruel. Low and disgusting and for no reason other than to be smug and self-righteous. Typical Gloria.

I guess grief is a two week process for Medusa. The way she cocked her brow and smirked when she learned The Hated William Bardwell had inherited money...maybe they do want us to hate her and I'm rational once again. Don't look her in the face!

What do you get when you mix Caramel with Dark Chocolate? Dru and Edwin, that's what. Drop that Soy Latte, motherfucker Dru. Pick the Venti Ho Chocolate, Dru!

Let us continue with that theme, I guess Lily wanted a little stuffing in her Oreo. Oph! Oh yeah, I'm keeping that one. Alright, I adore the Dily, would dily the Dily Daily is that wasn't wrong and sick but what precisely was the point of them breaking up if they're at the exact same place they were 6 weeks ago? Hmmm.

Hey, screenwriters of the world, black men can open clubs that have nothing to do with jazz. Just FYI.

Here's what I want: Noah in a fit of rap-induced rage to push Phyllis down a flight of stairs. Soapy and topical!

One day Nick and Sharon hate, hate, hate each other. The next they're laughing over the direction their lives are taking. Whatever. Have we just abandoned the notion of honest human emotions here? Is that why everyone is so out of character? Have the script writers been dispatched to the four corners of the earth and not allowed any human interaction?

I'll be perfectly honest, I've had no desire to watch the show this week. It's slowly but surely turning into just another soap opera and that makes me incredibly sad. Not that I'm incapable of appreciating it's charms, it can still deliver magnificently. However it's seemed to have lost the touches that made it absolutely above the rest, the camerawork, the dialogue, the delicate plotting that moved like molasses deliberately not just because. The community used to be a lot more...spralling. Sometimes one plot didn't touch another at all or when one crossed another it did it with signifigance. And I liked not knowing who would be on that day, plots weaved in and out each week and it hardly ever felt like stalling, it just felt like...life. Now we just have the same things repeated everyday with the same people. Everyday. No break. Just over and over, when you have the same people on everyday the things they say, the supposed life altering decisions they make tend to lose their importance because we eventually just sound them out, not because we don't care, we're just...bored. At least I am.

Next week will be better from what I've read. Here's hoping.

And hey, if you haven't signed up for the mailing list please do. Why? Because I'm needy. Well, no, because of weeks like this where the show's schedule is fucked and I'm fucked and fuckity fuck.

Alright, I AM needy but ya know.

I know what you mean Darn. About how your whole soap seems to be stuck on Groundhog day. Y&R is now the only soap I watch with any regularity. And its like everything is just a pointless drudge every day. Just six months ago I was LOVING almost everything about it(except for that fucking Cylon, Brad). Now I can't be bothered.


Go Crazy Vindictive Shru! Those two crazy broads are the only reason I watch anymore.

Darn, I need you. I NEED you. I would even totally tongue kiss you in the middle of a perfectly normal conversation, no matter how random or inappropriate it was. Because i need you just that much. I'd put pictures of myself and my family all over your living room.
I would kill Notzi's with my THINGHS (did you think I would forget?)
Baby, it's you.

*giggle* Oh, smarty! I'm so happy that I'm incapable of expressing an opinion contary to yours! I am only good for sex and popping out babies and giggling like a dumbass! Hehehehehe! How did I function in this world before you lit up my life? Yoooooou light up my liiiife!

The Shru is good. I can accept the Shru. As long as Dru's opinion stays dominant and Sharon doesn't start giving Dru advice, like to fuck the next guy that says she looks pretty today.

Darn, you kill me with laughter every single day. In this crazy world I'm thankful for that.

Many us Daily fans, have decided that the writers simply don't know what to do with our adorable duo (dare I ask if they even care?). They deserve a good story. Hope they get one!

ps
I read at twop that your B-Day is coming up!! Happy Birthday and best wishes!!

jcleopatra said...

oh...and I completely agree..... you're absolutely right about Y&R. It's getting too much like all the rest. There's a serious lack of balance and...well I don't need to tell you. I hope it improves quickly.

Darn (heffa!) I happen to think Dru SHOULD fuck the next guy who says she looks pretty. As long as that guy is ME. And I am a girl. But, you know.
The "New Guy" that she's taking to the Gala? Rrrowr! I'd be all over that like gravy all over Thanksgiving. Its nice to have a fresh shiny new Black Male character who is NOT a police officer. Can we keep him, please??? He won't chew on your expensive shoes, I promise.

What was with Dru strolling down memory lane? (and damn did she look GOOD strolling out of the room!) Bringing up the fact that she once worked in the mail room, and that she used to live at the Abbots had to be significant right? RIGHT?

Victor really does hate those two girls who are always talking to each other. Maybe they could find a new place to hang out. Unless StabApple Victor starts busting into the ladies room or the alley out back where the smokers hang out. This? Would be fucking hilarious. Nowhere at Newman is safe!

I have two weeks worth on tape and cannot be bothered to rewind and watch. Half don't care, half "Dear God in Heaven, don't make me watch more Gloria!"

So the live episodes are the only ones I've seen since John passed away and they are giving me no reason to tune in with Sharon and Jack and Phyllis and Nick, the Pairings of Wrongness.

Did you SEE the Jack/Phyllis say goodbye to John scenes, Lynn?! Bitch, THAT is chemistry. Waaah, I'm such a baby, I want my Phyllis/Jack back.

Darn, if it continues to blow at least we have each other, I mean at least you have shorty, dee and jase, who will post your convos. Hey, because I'm living in the dark ages with jase, make sure you make it real easy for us to see the hellspace thing when it's done, k?

God, I hate typos. I apologize for all the typos I make, that's what I get for posting drunk and/or high, right? Hahaha! Kidding. Say no to drugs, kids. Say yum to rum! Kidding!

Anyway.

That might be it. I wonder though if they just wanted the Alex thing out of the way so they wouldn't have that hanging over them? But what now? Another break up would just be repetitive and not even they can live on adorable forever. God forbid they turn into Nick and Phyllis with their gigglefests.

Victor really does hate those two girls who are always talking to each other. Maybe they could find a new place to hang out. Unless StabApple Victor starts busting into the ladies room or the alley out back where the smokers hang out. This? Would be fucking hilarious. Nowhere at Newman is safe!

He hates them so much and it was hilarious both times, I don't know why I didn't mention it. Those scenes were pretty great, can Victor just randomly yell at everybody? He's like a crazy homeless man.

Did you SEE the Jack/Phyllis say goodbye to John scenes, Lynn?! Bitch, THAT is chemistry. Waaah, I'm such a baby, I want my Phyllis/Jack back.

Really! That one scene was worth more than a marathon of Phylick giggling over shit that ain't funny.

Nick: Hezbollah.
Phyllis: Heheheheh.

Yes, I'm selling my soul to The Man. But it's supposed to be a surprise, don't tell nobody.

Lynn, is that you?

Seriously, Darn, that is so true it's sad. Fucking show!
