It is for the ” Presenters ”,, really, does anyone care lol..
I personally feel; just stop ..

It is online- Facebook and Twitter and the majority of the soap fans are Boomers and a good many don’t do online.

And- those awards do not hold a lot of anything that’s worth it.
Not one TV network will have them and the awards are forced to go to Facebook;
just- Stop .. Please Stop.. ((everything has its end, it’s time..

The glitz, the glamour-this is getting me quite excited. Despite fewer soaps and not being televised, it is still The Daytime Emmys-and who wouldn’t enjoy taking home one of those glittery gold stunners to place on the mantel. For us soap lovers, it is the event of the season and a time to honor all the hard work that goes into bringing the shows to our screens. A party not-to-be-missed. Only I wasn’t invited. That hasn’t stopped me before.
In taking a page or three from Nurse Betty, I am proposing our own Daytime Emmy adventure, Finding Fairman.
I will take the Pontiac station wagon into the mechanic tomorrow and get the transmission repaired. I am on the east coast, so need to plan on leaving tomorrow afternoon at the latest. Let me know as soon as possible who would like to carpool-and pitch in for gas-and I will map out a route to pick you up. Close quarters, so we are going to have to get along with each other and take turns driving. I’ll pack pack Colemans with plenty of ice and sandwich fixin’s and potato salad. We can wait and buy liquor for the cotillion once we hit Hollywood.
We won’t have tickets to the festivites, but I see no reason we can’t tailgate outside each event-I’ve got the propane grill and a party dress, and can’t wait to share a juicy burger with Marla Adams and give Michael Fairman a big hug as well. If anyone is good with a video cam, bring it along and we will post our adventures to Youtube-and hopefully raise funds for a motel and return trip. Now, please- no dilly-dallying around!
Either you are on board or not and if you are hitching on this wagon train in search of bright lights and Emmy gold-let me know, asap. Hollywood-here we come.

While I am there I want to meet Mari Wilson aka Miss Beehive and RC Cates-the musical director for YR and she Mal Young’s wife-together nominated for a song they wrote together for the show. Love her voice and the songs of hers they have played on the show. Plus all the people mentioned above. I just got back from CVS and purchased five disposable cameras so I can get some of those selfies and pics of the stars. No mention of Erica Kane but hoping to hobnob with her.


call me Julie Newmar : i’m ready tramping for all the fixins

General Hospital has been one big bore lately! I can’t sit thru a whole show anymore. It was so good when Jason first returned. Now they are just rehashing the
same Sam/Jason/Spinelli antics. I am afraid the magic between Jason and Sam is gone. The only story worth watching is Mike , thanks to a great performance by Max Gail. He just breaks my heart.
