ABC has announced they are canceling All My Children and One Life to Live — this is going to ruin my friend Annie’s life. She loves those shows. She is always telling me what these people are up to, even though I have no idea who they are — well actually I do remember a few names from when I use to watch them all the time. During high school summer vacation I would watch “Ryan’s Hope,” “All My Children,” “One Life to Live,” and “General Hospital.” They are quite addictive and I have a feeling a lot of people are going to go through withdrawal when they go off the air.
Not only does Annie watch them, she writes stories of her own about them, often interjecting herself and other people she knows. I can only hope I’m in one of those stories being rescued by Bo Buchanan – he’s hot.
I don’t even know if there are many soaps left anymore? It’s all judge shows and talk shows now. Much cheaper to produce than soap operas I suppose and not as many stay at home moms to watch them these days. If you want to see a funny movie you should rent “Soap Dish.” It does a real good job of satirizing soap operas. My friend Peter and I love it – and that should be enough of a recommendation right there.
They say we may get snow today. I would impale myself on a window scraper if I didn’t believe it will not last long. My friend Lori who lives in Wyoming is use to having snow as late as June. I don’t know if I could take that. She’s a better person than me.
