THE POWER OF LOVE
**Let me being by trying again for those of you who couldn’t see the tweet. Here is the link sent to me by @corinna_p and posted by @neti07: http://twitpic.com/20na66 . I LOVE JASAM FANS! **
GHers, I was reminded of something pretty important to us JaSammers yesterday, and I would like to share that reminder with all of you. A dear reader, Anne, emailed me a beautiful and heartfelt letter about The Power Of Love~JaSam Love. Anne shared that like many of us, she has never been so invested in a couple before, and she feels that with a little effort, we can get JaSam the attention and storyline they deserve.
Anne said something that struck a chord with me. In 3 days, we were able to turn a poll where we were at 24% completely around and take a commanding lead because we were determined. Anne also included this little clip: http://bit.ly/a0C601, reminding me that once Jason and Sam were THE NUMBER ONE COUPLE consistently for about three years – including the months following their breakup! And Anne, you’re right, even though the polls may not have a huge impact on the writers, it is a MORALE booster for Team JaSam and a MORALE buster for Team Whoever Else.
It’s funny, everyone seemed to have the same thoughts yesterday- I also got come comments from other readers reminding me about the other polls where we can lift JaSam up, and help silence the noise coming from the opposition. I think what has happened is that other people mistake our nonchalance for polls that don’t weigh on the writers for lack of interest or devotion for our favorite couple. That could not be further from the truth!
Really, what would it take to put Jason and Sam back on tope of the polls? Maybe 30 seconds each time we vote? Would it be so hard to devote even a couple of minutes per day- especially when other fanbases are going to the trouble of removing cookies, opening firefox (whatever that is) and voting from every possible source just to keep a couple who has had almost zero interaction in about a year on top? Only you can answer for yourself, but Anne took such effort in making me see that the actors are aware of (at least) the weekly polls, that I want to do it for Kelly and Steve, but especially for Kelly. The rest is up to you. I will do my part in putting up the link daily, and in voting as often as I can.
Thanks Anne, and Maria, and Darlene, and Jessica and everyone else who is willing to fight for TEAM JASAM! I promise to do my best to encourage others!
Looking back at yesterday’s Port Charles Escapades, there were a few things that stuck in my head.
Sadly, Kristina finds herself atop that list once more. I want to preface what I am about to say with a very clear statement that I am not an advocate of violence or abuse. That being said, Kristina needs an old-fashioned parent-induced ass-whooping. She is completely out of her cotton-picking mind, and she’s out of control. Why isn’t she sitting on the deck reading the Twilight series for the 3rd time? Or why isn’t she planning with a bunch of teenaged girls to go see the Midnight premiere of Eclipse when it comes out tonight? Then instead of stalking Johnny, and being some kind of inappropriate voyeur on his booty call with Liv, she could have been out shopping for a Team Edward or Team Jacob t-shirt. And when Alexis told Sonny she was on Kristina like “white on rice”, was that a gross exaggeration, or is Alexis unclear about what that phrase means? I mean, really! Kristina has been to Johnny’s 3 times in one day! I would have her ass on LOCK DOWN!
And really Johnny – couldn’t he have gotten out from under Olivia long enough to walk Kristina to the door, walk her over the threshold, tell her that if she showed up again he was going to call the police, and slam the door in her face. That’s what Kristina needs. Boundaries. Clear ones. If I hear Johnny say ONE MORE TIME that if he and Sonny go after each other and one of them dies, it’s on them, not Kristina, I may be tempted to kill him myself for stupidity.
Why was Olivia bawling when Johnny accused her of putting Sonny before him every time? Was it because the truth hurts, or because she was afraid Johnny won’t let her stomp in and screw him senseless next time the mood strikes? I didn’t get it. Does she love Johnny or not? Please don’t tell me she’s still trying to figure out if she loves Sonny! I wish she would just make her choice and live with it and stop this nonsense! In the meantime, maybe Kate has Tyra’s number, and we can get Ms. J. Alexander from Top Model to teach Olivia to walk a little more gracefully. (Cause it’s getting on my last nerve!)
Once again Brook Lynn is not among the Brooklyn-born I’m taking issue with today. In fact, I was cheering her on when Lulu snuck up, eavesdropped, and then started giving orders to Brook, and unsolicited advice to Michael…again. Brook handled that situation very well, I thought. “Sorry I got you in trouble with your new Ma’!” she said before leaving. LOL! Really, Lulu is kinda acting like everyone’s “ma” lately, and it grates on my nerves. She also continues to cross the line about what she says about Michael’s’ dad in front of him. The things I found to be most unbelievabkle is that she actually went to Sonny and asked him to ask Jason not to run. Hmmm. I was totally okay with her and Dante having it out- just please, don’t let it lead to more —–Make-up sex.
Jason is about to be sprung. (Why did I just think of a raunchy romance novel as I wrote that) Thank goodness he’s about to get out of Pentonville because dammit, Steve Burton is just too good looking to be poorly lit. Besides, even if I don’t see it on camera, I need to know he and Sam are spending their nights together. Claire Walsh won’t give Jason a gun, Dante thinks he’s just going to use Jason as bait, and then swoop in and arrest Franco himself, and I’m not really sure that anyone cares about what happens to Jason. Not even his “best friend” Sonny.
How many of you wanted to kiss Jason yesterday when he told Sonny the truth everyone sees but Sonny? (I guess that’s not really fair, as most of us always want to kiss Jason) It’s all about Dante for Sonny. I am so glad that Jason finally pointed that out, and let’s face it: Tough-ass Jason is HOT! He actually had the nerve to ask Jason not to run after they caught Franco, so that Dante wouldn’t lose his badge. In effect, he was telling Jason to go back to prison, to walk away from Sam again, just so that Dante could keep his job. That took balls.
I hope Sonny finds those balls when his next stupid idea literally blows up in his face, instead of crying all over Port Charles. Luke tried to remind him of how eerily similar Sonny’s plan was to Rivera’s plan when he ended up killing his pregnant daughter instead of Sonny. Does Sonny listen? It doesn’t appear so, friends.
Finally, what can we say about Dr. Patrick Drake? First, I have to say that as brilliant as Drake is as a doctor, he is as dumb as a door nail when it comes to Lisa’s manipulations. My goodness, she played him like a fiddle! If all men were this stupid marriage wouldn’t be worth the time it takes to fill out the license. “Shut up,” Patrick said to Lisa. “Make me,” retorted Lisa. I kid you not, I must have used that at least twice in HIGH SCHOOL. I never thought it would work in the real world of adulthood! Obviously, I was wrong, as Patrick attacked her with a kiss and closed the door, not just to her apartment – but to his conscience.
One can only hope that Robin’s experience in Saving the World gives her enough strength and fortitude for what awaits her back home.

Here’s a question to ask today…Why doesn’t GH use Kelly’s involvement with Feed the Children in some way onscreen to spread interest, like All My Children did with Susan Lucci? Certainly, there is a way to write that into the story! What a waste!
