A MAGICAL SUNDAY DRIVE DOWN MEMORY LANE…and a lil’ something extra!
Happy Sunday, GHers!
Thanks for all of your concern…it simply comes down to the fact that sometimes I think I’m Wonder Woman. When the contractor left, not all of the mess went with him, and everywhere I looked, I found a reminder of him. Long story short: I did too much and ended up paying dearly – no amount of pain meds, rest, or even acupuncture could undo it. (Funny thing is that by too much I meant like staying on my feet for more than 20 minutes at a time or vacuuming)
Today’s Sunday Drive will include my thoughts on the episodes I couldn’t blog about, just because how could I keep all that excitement to myself? Nothing could keep me from watching every moment of General Hospital this week. I was as glued to the TV as I was to the flat surface I happened to be occupying at the moment. And good thing, too! I mean, WOW! What a week!
Let’s work our way up the ladder of success…ful writing, shall we?
Lucky’s world is looking up. After being played for a fool by the two people he trusted most, and having his heart ripped out and stomped on, he sure could use some sunshine, couldn’t he? It seems that the winds of Fate have decided to turn on Lucky Spencer. It seems that he can’t even frown without some lovely lady swooping in to give him some overdue special attention. Just last week, Lucky was tempted to pick up a drink and start boozing when Maxie not only talked him out of it, but flirted and made Liz jealous to boot. NICE! This week, Lucky just decided to chill on a park bench with his (but not his) boys, when in swoops, (well maybe she moped) Ms. Claire Walsh and declared to Lucky that she wanted “one of those”. Too funny! I know most of us were pissed at who cocky she was when she first came to town, but Ms. Walsh is starting to grow on me. What a stroking she gave Lucky’s male ego, huh?…Claire told Lucky he was the perfect catch, husband, father, sperm donor – all in one conversation! Most men have to wait years to hear all that! Speaking of Claire Walsh – boy, what an enigma she is! I just can’t figure her out! Is she just another hard-ass prosecutor, or a misunderstood woman worried about her ticking bio clock? After all, it’s ticking so loudly, even Lucky can hear it. I have to say that for a minute there, I thought she was going to whip out a specimen cup and ask Lucky to make a deposit ! All in all, I thought the scenes were funny, and I’m all for Lucky finally getting involved with a woman. Maybe it will finally cure him of the Teenage Girl Syndrome he suffers from! I’m for Lucky to get a little action, especially if it drives Liz insane!
Someone who would agree with me would be Carly. Of that I am sure. This week, Carly reminded all of us that messing with her kids is a no-no! She will bring your world crashing down around you. That’s exactly her plan with Dante and Lulu – and they better watch out! I am in awe at how Carly can play Lulu while keeping her anger in check! I could never pull that off! Carly sat her down and milked her for all the information she can use to turn around and remind Lulu exactly why blood is thicker than water. I have to admit, I’m going to enjoy it! I used to be able to endure “Lante” with a little more aplomb, and I used to be able to take Lulu in small doses. But no longer. I have had it *up to here* with those two. Dante and Lulu are so self-righteous these days that it makes my eye twitch! I will not mind seeing them knocked down a peg…or two!
Maxie reminds me a little bit of Lucy Ricardo. You know how Lucy always had a plan that SEEMED brilliant to her, but ALWAYS led to disaster? Yesh…that’s just like Maxie. Her latest idea is should have flashing lights all over it! Matt Hunter, MD has always had a thing for Maxie. There is no way he is going to let this opportunity be wasted. He is going to do his best to woo her and chase any thoughts of Spinelli from her blonde head, and it just might work. If Maxie thought Spinelli was depressed BEFORE her latest scheme, wait ’til he sees her out and about with the resident cutie pie!
Speaking of Spinelli, I’d hate to see him hurt, because Spinelli is a great friend. He was sincerely concerned for Stone Cold’s safety and well-being, and the grasshopper is truly lost without his master. He’s also a wonderful friend to our Fair Samantha, and will be a great source of support for her, and vice versa. You’ve gotta love Spinelli, and hope that when Maxie breaks his heart for the umpteenth time – that someone truly worthy will be there to put it back together again.
Well, friends…way at the top of this weeks’ storyline was of course, our beloved Jason and Sam. These two can make me believe just about ANYTHING, and this week, they made me believe that they are more in love than ever and just perfect together! The scenes of Jason and Sam at the cabin made me smile, tear up, laugh, and cry like a baby! How sweet and heart-wrenching wee those scenes? But more importantly, how effective were they at convincing us that Jason and Sam are SOUL MATES, meant-to-be, and able to overcome ANYTHING? I had to smile as I caught up on my comments and emails. I wasn’t the only one who was reminded of Jason and Sam in Hawaii when Jason apologized to Sam for “leaving her alone.” It’s a beautiful thing when fans can be taken back five years in a couple’s history with one phrase, and it was that way in every scene we saw. Everything they said and did took us back to a special moment. From the first memory they share about Hawaii, to the talk at the PCPD about Sam and her “outfit” last summer – they celebrated their long and fabulous History. That, my fellow JaSam lovers, is what a SUPERCOUPLE is made of, regardless of what our friends at ABC Soaps In Depth, or the fans who still tweet Steve about their couple “coming back”, say. I’m not sure what it is about the professional dynamic between Steve and Kelly, but they just sizzle onscreen, and leave all other couples – at GH and elsewhere, in the shadows. By the way, in case you haven’t heard, SoapNet deemed them the “Performers of the Week” for this week’s performances, (check it out at: http://bit.ly/aqirTW) and they are SO VERY DESERVING! JaSammers, as I read that commentary, I was so proud that we are not the only ones who see the NATURAL, yet UNMISTAKABLE chemistry between Steve and Kelly! It’s not just us – TPTB, and those who matter to TPTB are noticing too! It was a great week to be a JaSam Fan, and I am so glad I hung in there! Aren’t you?
Once again, I’m hoping for lots of memories and flashbacks during the time that Jason and Sam are separated. I’m sharing that wish with TPTB by calling them several times a day…right after I thank them for the Quantity and Quality of JaSam scenes we got this week!

I leave you with week’s Magical Sunday Drive. I hope you enjoy it as much I enjoyed putting it together! A sincere thanks to all of this week’s vidders, and a special thanks to Steve and Kelly, for MAKING THE MAGIC!
Love you guys! 😉
Tammy is one of my favorite vidders, and she was just INSPIRED by this week’s JaSam scenes! I knew you wouldn’t mind seeing these scenes over and over! Each song gave it a different “feel”, and I loved both vids – I think you will too!
