A RESTLESS Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane

Good Sunday Morning, GHers! 

While nothing could ever shake my JaSam Loving Heart, or make me change my mind about Daytime’s Most Magical Supercouple Ever…I will admit that as I have been watching Y&R more regularly again in prep for “Dylan’s” arrival in Genoa City, I am starting to feel a little RESTLESS about seeing those blue eyes looking at anyone other Sam…or those lips kissing anyone else’s than Sam’s, or those fingers brushing aside anyone’s hair but Sam’s…well, I’m sure you get the picture.

I kinda feel nervous about it…like a PI on  a cheating spouse case about to catch the cheater! *bites nails*

I guess a PI would turn on the radio in her car as she sat waiting…we’ll turn on the vids! Thanks to all of our vidders who are doing such an outstanding job of seeing us through this withdrawal from our JaSam addiction. . . by feeding us more JaSam! 🙂

When I find myself feeling lost and adrift in either Port Charles or Genoa City, you can find me in YouTube. That’s where I’ll be, driving up and down Memory Lane, until my heartache lessens a little. I’m sure I’ll catch glimpses of quite a bit of you on there! Be sure and wave!

For today, we’re taking this Drive together. Jump in…

I feel a little less RESTLESS now after having taken this Drive together! I’m glad to have shared not just this week’s Drive, or each of the many Sunday Drives we’ve ever taken, but I am also glad to have shared every single step of the incredible journey we’ve shared over the past three years! I hope this journey is far from over!

Love you guys! Enjoy your Sunday!

A Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane…Through Christmas Past

Happy Sunday morning, GHers!

I hope your presents are all bought, wrapped and under the tree…and that you’ll have some time for yourself to sit back with a hot drink and enjoy some Christmases Past with our beloved couple, Jason and Sam.

I will tell you that it just won’t be Christmas in Port Charles without them being together….they became my favorite part about Christmas in Port Charles back in 2004, and I will miss them terribly.

This is why this week’s Drive is so special…I can relive all of my favorite memories of their Christmases spent in love.

I am making my Christmas wish, and my top pick on my letter to Santa…for JaSam to be reunited soon! (And that Steve really starts to miss work!)

So, please do not bust my Christmas bubble! 🙂

Sit back…relax…and open your heart to all the moments of love for each other and the holiday they complied over the years. And if me must cry, let’s make them tears of joy for having been witness to such a beautiful Love Story. Fictional or not, it changed our lives…and made us friends. That is a GIFT in and of itself!

I hear sleigh bells…jump in!

Aahhh…they were beautiful, weren’t they? I hope you never stop telling TPTB how much you miss Steve, and how much you miss JaSam on your screen! Get as mushy as you dare, but make sure they know that a little piece of your heart is missing, right alongside Jason! Maybe we’ll inspire them to sweeten the deal for Steve to come back…and soon! 🙂

On a different note, I ask for your prayers. Matthew’s teacher’s husband passed away last week, and today we will be attending funeral services for him. He was only 43, and it was completely unexpected and terribly sudden. Both Matthew and Vanessa will be singing at the service, and they are both heartbroken for the family. I cannot imagine having to endure all this…and at Christmas, no less. Your prayers will go a long way today!

Thanks to all of you…I love you all so dearly!

Merry Christmas!

A *DAZZLING* Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane

Good Sunday Morning, GHers!

It is a HUGE day at our house today! It’s the day of the annual Christmas Spectacular at our children’s school – and this year is my youngest’s first time with a major part as an angel, and my son’s last…as he will be graduating at the end of this school year. So I will be packing lots and lots of tissues and applying waterproof mascara in preparation, but boy am I excited and immensely proud!

Wish them luck, won’t ‘cha? 🙂

As I went through vids this week, I came across one that I remember served as a smilemaker during a pretty hard time for JaSam during the Brenda era. Then I remembered that this particular vidder was one who, in my mind, has made some pretty *DAZZLING* vids over the years, and they were memorable to me because of the effects she used. So, I went back and watched quite a few of them, and found myself smiling and recalling some wonderful, exciting moments for us as JaSam fans. I just knew that I had to take you on the same drive down memory lane.

Her vids are of the shorter variety, so I included way more than I usually do. (And still, she has many more you should check out when you have time!) I hope that you will enjoy it as much as I did, as this vidder, mcdela02, is in the driver’s seat today, and all the vids we’ll be enjoying are credited to her. The really incredible thing is just how much JaSam “ground” she covers in her vids. It truly will be A Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane. Be prepared to be *DAZZLED*! She’s absolutely magnificent!

Wow…isn’t she a talented little thing? 

I hope you’ll all show her some love for all of her hard work over the years…maybe it will inspire her to make a new vid…including some of the scenes with JaSam and Baby Daniel. 🙂

Truly, our JaSam vidders are all so AMAZING. I think we are so lucky they are #TeamJaSam!

By the way, I hope this week’s drive also served to show us all why the JaSam Magic is irreplaceable – and could NEVER be imitated by anyone other than STELLY! A Jason recast would be an insult to me as a fan – a slap in the face even. I am praying that it never happens. I’d rather Jason be “out there somewhere” trying to get back to his family, than for some new Jason come in and ruin (or even change) the fantastic thing we had going between Steve and Kelly!

I will hold out hope until the very end that Jason will come back – OUR Jason, even if we have to wait a while.

Enjoy your Sunday, loves!

It’s always wonderful to start off my Sundays with you all!

A Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane…In Black & White

Good morning, GHers.

By the way, for those of you longtime readers, you’ll recognize the theme for this next week is from our second year together together! Awww…I still remember putting it together! Back then, we were enjoying that first anniversary of Jason and Sam’s first year together since their reunion. If only we could rewind… 😦

The holidays are my favorite time of year! I am so excited already…there are presents under the tree now, my shopping list is getting smaller, and thoughts of seeing all the little ones in my family tearing open gifts are already dancing in my head.

I’ll be honest though. Just thinking about the holidays in Port Charles, without a Charlie Brown Christmas Tree that Jason and Sam would decorate together with Danny, and without them having their first family Christmas together, the thought of Christmas in Port Charles makes me a little sad.

I am missing Jason and Sam like crazy. With me, it’s simple. It’s as clear as black and white – no gray areas: Jason and Sam were, for me, The Beauty of GH Always. In my search for this week’s vids, I started out looking for vids that gave us a “classic” feel for our favorite couple. That then turned into a search for vids that not only “felt” classic but “looked” classic as well.

In the end, I found a nice collection from different times in their history, that left me smiling and feeling lucky to have been part of their journey from the first minute they laid eyes on each other. I hope this week’s Drive leaves you feeling the same.

Let’s get going…

All Roads Lead To Sam

Good morning, GHers.

Let me begin by saying how proud I am of our Kelly Monaco. What an AMAZING journey she had on the Dancing With The Stars’ All Stars Season!

I said this all along, and I will say it again. Of the three finalists, Kelly was the one with the least amount of professional training – her first winning season  lasted less than Melissa’s first non-winning season, and she was neither a professional Dallas Cowboy cheerleader or a gold medal winning US Olympian. When you don’t have extensive experience in following a routine or choreography, and then performing it in front of a huge audience-both live and on air, (as both other finalists had), then you truly are at a disadvantage. To see Kelly reach that same stage as a finalist with the other (more experienced) girls was a huge moment for me as her fan. I could not have been more proud, and to me, the judges were right when they said more than once that Kelly was exactly what the spirit of the show was about. So in my eyes, Kelly is a true champion, and I am extremely proud that I was #TeamVally from day one.

I LOVE YOU, KELLY MONACO! 

Now, all I want is for Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati to give  Sam a storyline with Val, where they could show off all they learned on General Hospital. Please help me in trying to make that happen by contacting GH and TPTB any and every which way you know how! Sam is a P.I., it wouldn’t be the first time she’s had to take on a new career for a short time! They CAN and SHOULD make this happen!

That would be one more road that leads to Sam…as it seems that at the moment, All Road Leads To Sam. 

Once again, I enjoyed most of the show this afternoon. The Quartermaines were at their absolute best: plotting behind each others’ backs.  I so enjoyed hearing all that Quartermaine name-dropping in the discussions each side had. I loved that even though the math didn’t really make sense to me, both sides – AJ’s and Tracy’s, will be lacking the very shares that Sam will control. I love even more that Tracy, who started Sam on that slippery slope towards that bitch Amelia Joffe in 2007, will have to grovel at her feet and work her way up to kissing Sam’s cute little butt! While I am not sure that I like the idea of AJ slinking around Sam and Baby Danny, I do love that Sam will be in the thick of things with Jason and Danny’s family, and that they will all want to be in her good graces.

I pray that Sam will have a support system in her family, Spin, but it seems that the writers seem to have forgotten that Sam and Maxie were really good friends, because Maxie thinks she and Lulu are like sisters. So much so, that Maxie wants to be Dante and Lulu’s surrogate. Ehhh…I am not sure about that idea. While it will give them plenty of story over the next few months, I am just not sure that is the best use of Maxie. I guess we’ll see. Perhaps we will be pleasantly surprised. *shrugs*

Once again, Duke and The Mask fail to keep my interest or inspire any excitement. I just do not, and never have, liked camp when it comes to my GH. I was always very thankful that I was too young to remember storylines such as The Ice Princess, and I just cannot understand how such a smart and internationally schooled spy like Anna Devane wouldn’t notice that the man in front of her is wearing a mask! *smacks forehead* I think that the last time I was this disappointed in a beloved soap’s storyline was when Guiding Light’s writers thought it was a good idea to clone Reva Shane Lewis. *shudders* Listen, I get that lots of people do enjoy camp on their soaps, or OLTL would have disappeared off our screens long before it actually did. I am just not one of them, and look forward to this one storyline wrapping.

I am not sure what that long-ass history lesson/phone convo the Manning women had was about…whether it was bringing people who never watched OLTL up to speed on Todd and Blair’s relationship, or if it was to name-drop Tomas’ name in Port Charles before Alcazar drops in on PC. Whichever it was, to me, it simply gave me time to fix a snack, trudge laundry upstairs, and even call to schedule the kids’ dental appointments during their Christmas break. 🙂

One thing I do wish we saw more of was the use of flashbacks and memories of Jason. Over on B&B, where Stephanie Forrester is dying after an incredible 25 year run on the show, there have been flashbacks in abundance, and they have never failed to move me to tears. More importantly, those flashbacks explain to the newer or less devoted viewer, why Brooke Logan is the one at her side in her final moments after a tumultuous history.  I will never, ever understand why GH doesn’t use those kinds of flashbacks more, especially since sometime they use flashbacks from like the day before ad nauseam.

Jason and Sam had something that only romantic soap legends have: a long, and storied history teaming chock full o’nuts with special moments, extraordinary memories, and tons of pivotal points in their time together that would lend themselves to understanding Sam’s refusal to give up on Jason right now. Sam and Jason have such an honest and true-blue love story, where they fell in love after seeing the very best of each other after initially thinking the very worst of each other. That is always so much better than love stories where the opposite happens and people see the worst of each other after thinking they fell in love with the very best. They’ve loved each other through life and death situations, nearly killed each other out of pain and anger, and found their way back to each other each and every time, using their love for each other as their compass. Why aren’t we seeing more of those moments? They are The Beauty of GH!

For someone tuning in without the benefit of having witnessed the history, those glances backwards in time go a long way. There may be someone tuning into GH after watching Kelly on DWTS who may have no clue as to why Sam is seemingly in denial about her husband’s unfortunate death, rather than having an opportunity to understand why Sam is not in denial, but refusing to accept he’s gone, because she feels that her heart would know if Jason’s was no longer beating. Glimpses of how their abiding and indestructible love came to be would give those new viewers a connection with Sam that they may never have reached otherwise.

I don’t know *sigh* …all we can do is ask them, and pray that they listen. All I know is that even for me, a lifetime viewer, seeing Jason onscreen again – even through memories, would fill a void Steve Burton left behind when he left for Tennessee. *tears*

‘Til then, I will keep turning to the incredible vidders who took time out of their busy lives over the years to leave us a huge part of JaSam’s Legacy in video form. Thank the good Lord for them. All of them. 🙂

Because of them, we have inspiration like this: “Heaven” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQY3d023JR4 Credit: YuGottaHitPeople

A THANKFUL Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane…In Spite Of Everything

Good Sunday Morning, GHers!

I hope and pray you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and that you shared the day with those you are most thankful for.

As most of you know, holidays only mean one thing at my house: Family. Family. And more family. Now that the holiday is over, and the leftovers are gone, everyone has departed, and we are back to being on our own again…until the next round at Christmas. 🙂

I’ve had some long, sleepless nights over the past week…I always get a bit anxious when I am responsible for pleasing so many people. The silver lining to my insomnia being such an issue this past week was that it meant I had plenty of time to watch JaSam vids…from the classic to the most rent. And since the overwhelming sense of THANKFULNESS is still with me, I began to feel very THANKFUL for the gift we were given in the form of daytime’s Best. Couple. Ever.

Listen, I know we’ve had a rough year as JaSam fans. I know that we had a tough loss in losing half of our Super COUPLE. I know that some of us think we should give up the ghost on thinking that Jason will ever be back (not me!) However, IN SPITE OF EVERYTHING, we are taking a THANKFUL Drive this week, because especially for us JaSam fans, these vids will remind us that it was better for JaSam to have loved and lost (and left us SO MANY INCREDIBLE MEMORIES), than never to have loved at all.

So, to that end, I found some “THANKFUL” themed vids, and I know that looking back at these ( many of which are Vintage JaSam), you will realize that we still have so much to be thankful for when it comes to our couple and their AMAZING history. There’s enough JaSam love on YT to help us keep that love alive…and to keep us feeling THANKFUL that we part of their legacy.

Chin up, jump in, and prepare to feel THANKFUL  all over again!

A Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane…Celebrating Jenn & Steph!

Good Sunday morning, GHers!

I hope you’ve had a wonderful week. I will admit that I only really watched GH on Friday when Sam was on – the one other day she was on, we lost power due to the condition of our transformers around here. 😦

I will tell you that I did have the TV on a couple of times this week (when we did have power), and I just do not like the whole face mask thing with Duke/Faison AT ALL! Ugh… I am hanging on by my fingernails, but luckily Sam and Danny and the thought of Jason coming home to them keep me from letting go.

Well, that and the vids all of our vidders keep dreaming up! Thank goodness for all of the motivation to hold on they provide us. How grateful am I for each of them? EXTREMELY GRATEFUL!

I am also very grateful for you guys, my friends, and want to wish two very special friends, Jenn and Steph a ton of birthday wishes! Jenn’s birthday was this past week, and Steph’s is coming up this week, so as we take our Drive, let’s be sure to celebrate in their honor!

As a gift to you both, I hope you enjoy every single and special JaSam moment put together and tied neatly in a (birthday) bow for your enjoyment (and ours).

I love you both to pieces! xoxox

And…if, like me, you really did need a reminder of just how much Jason and Sam loved each other over the past nine years, and how much they wanted a life together as husband and wife, this vid is for you! The vidder has given us an incredible gift…something to truly be thankful for!

*wipes tears*

Know that as I drop each of you off, I am leaving with a renewed devotion to our favorite couple! There will just NEVER be another couple like them, and I will keep fighting for them to be back in each other’s lives…and in ours! I hope you will, too!

Love you all!
