HONESTY IS BEST…
Good morning, GHers.
Let me begin with a confession. I did not watch GH today. I have no clue what happened in PC. I didn’t even YT the scenes. Also, I have not seen either of the two promos everyone sent me via Facebook message, Twitter DMs, or even email. I don’t plan to either.
Honesty Is Best.
I meant it when I said that I would not watch the destruction of the greatest couple I’ve ever had the pleasure of becoming a fan of AGAIN. So, even though I didn’t know if they would even be on today, I refused to turn on GH. I said a few days ago that the most important thing we can do as fans is ONE THING: Send them a clear message that you won’t be tuning in to see them trying to make us believe that Jason and Sam have suddenly forgotten the many lessons they’ve learned on their journey to becoming Mr. & Mrs. Morgan, especially the one where they understood that “as long as they are honest” they would be “better than okay.” We need to let them know we will not support the tearing down of the strongest couple GH had to offer.
I think our mission is clear, but I also thought it is pretty simple. After taking a peek at all of the back and forth, I think we may be complicating things, even for ourselves.
Honesty Is Best.
Let’s stick with the truth. We are not going to watch Mr. & Mrs. Morgan disregard the vows that they took so seriously. That is where we are right now. And that’s all they need to know right now. What they don’t need is to see us creating more buzz on social media about Jason and Sam’s mistakes than we create about their Love! Let’s not follow in the footsteps of the Jizzers who started “boycotting” GH rather loudly since JaSam’s Reunion in 2009, yet lit up Twitter and Facebook pages every time they were freaking out about something. After a while, they sounded ridiculous, and their “threats” sounded as empty as the promises made about their couple’s reunion. *rolling eyes*
We don’t need to be all over the place talking about boycotting, and we certainly shouldn’t be tweeting frantically about promos or spoilers or rumors or anything that would give the writers the idea that we give a flying $&#*, while inadvertently creating buzz for these clueless writers who think “all buzz is good buzz.” *shaking head*
Honesty Is Best. And if you aren’t watching something, surely you can’t have a reaction to it, and if you don’t have a reaction to it, you’re not feeding into the social media buzz, and if there’s no buzz, it’s pretty clear to TPTB that we meant what we said when we said we wouldn’t watch that crap. Now, if you must get caught up with one of the other story lines, please do so on YT, and not on ABC.com. We wouldn’t want to confuse them about what “tuning out” means to us.
I want you to know that the Jizzers actually have on of their underlings collecting all the JaSam “Meltdown Tweets” and then they post them on their site for entertainment. Do you want to be part of that? I know I won’t be.
The other hot topic seems to be the ratings race between GH and GAA. I am going to be as honest as I know how to be. If anyone thinks that GAA isn’t going to blast GH in the ratings right out of the gate, I’d be surprised. GAA already has a faithful following every morning on GMA. Their promos are pimping ideas like “Fun”, “Happy”, and “Good Times”. GH promos pimp … well, pimps and hos, if the Mob Princess s/l is any indication. Who do YOU think is going to get new viewers? They already have the advantage. They will not need our help. I follow Sam Champion (GMA”s weather man), who was my local weather guy my whole life. Trust me when I tell you they will not be hurting for viewers. I am not going to tell you or TPTB that I am going to watch GAA, because I will not be watching. Ever. Even if GH went off the air tomorrow.
Honesty Is Best.
In order to keep things simple, and in an attempt to cut back on all the debate amongst ourselves, let’s stick to the plan. WE ARE NOT WATCHING THEM RIP THE MORGANS APART ON GH. It may still happen onscreen, and it may actually get worse, but we can only exercise control over what we will watch and lend ratings to. I am going to let GAA fight its own ratings battle without my help, because I care so little about it, that I won’t waste a minute of my time on it. I hope that clears up where I stand on that issue.
I will continue to use my voice to show my love and support for Jason and Sam as a couple, but NOT as part of a meltdown during GH. I will not post any comments or send any emails or write anymore postcards or letters mentioning the other pairings, because the message I am sending is clear: They are not a factor to me. All of my communications with them will focus on the pairing of Jason and Sam, and the positives they brought to my viewing experience at GH…Once Upon A Time. The other pairings will be as non-existent in what I have to say to TPTB, as they are in my *JaSam Bubble*.
Let’s try practicing that, even here at “home”. Let’s focus on Jason and Sam, and stop *buzzing* about the other two “interlopers”. (Love that word, guys!) LOL!
Yes, when you are honest, you mean what you say, and you say what you mean. Cool, calm, cant collected. Let’s start that right now. We know what’s been said; now let’s do this!
See No Evil, Hear No Evil, and by all that is JaSam holy – Speak/Tweet/Facebook No EVIL!!! *whistles*
Honesty Is Best.
Love you all,
