    Scrimmage - Another great post/rant. I'm not sure how old you are, but the SO and I are in the big money for pills boomer generation. Each time we have a checkup, we are warned about this or that level being close to a stage where we should start thinking of trying this or that medication. The SO has Type II diabetes and he's on 5 different daily medications, some to counteract the effects of the others. IMO there is a triad of Corporate Medicine, Corporate Health Insurance, and Corporate Pharmas, each of which has grown exponentially through mergers during the past 15 years.
    I got spoiled so quickly by the Saturday games that I find myself cleaning out closets and drawers again today. Looking forward to the games tomorrow. Have a great Saturday night. Going to the gentleman's club?LOL

    I was traveling this week so didn’t watch Mon-Thurs GH, but was able to get caught up by reading all the wonderful posts, which made for some great/fun reading. Was able to watch Friday’s show on SoapNet and while I could have done without the Drakes/Lisa/Terrell, it was a good show.

    I first want to say to all of the loyal Liz’s fans, especially Ran, Hera and TXMN, I’m so sorry that we will be loosing RH. I’ve always admired your loyalty to her character and know you will truly miss seeing her on GH. Good luck to BH and her family.

    I want to also second what poodles wrote on her [Wednesday, January 19 2011 07:09 AM] post. She was spot on in her comments. I too have a few favorites and if they left GH I will miss them, but I won’t go as far as saying I won’t watch GH because that character has left, nor would I wish the cancellation of GH which would cause a lot of people to loose their jobs. Poodles is also correct in that we love to hate characters, after all, it’s the nature of Soaps. The writers write s/l’s for which we’re either going to love/hate or either going to love/hate the actor/actress playing those roles. Liz do have a huge fan base, which is a credit to her acting skills so I understand their anger.

    I also agree with what da_kid posted when she said that it wasn’t the negative comments about actors/actresses that leads to them being let go/fired. It’s definitely lazy writing on the part of TIIC.

    Carly, Carly, Carly, oh how I love to hate my girl (in that order). First of all, I think she’s way too corky about destoying Dante/Brenda and Lulu in the process with this supposed information about a Dante/Brenda baby for her own good. Secondly, how soon she forget, but does she remember what happened to Claudia at her birthday party when Sonny chose at that moment to unleash his fury on her in public (not privately) for her part in Michael being in a coma and loosing a year of his life, and yet she sits there and tell Diane that she’s going to blow Dante/Brenda lives apart with (again) this supposed information about a baby at Sonny’s wedding. Has she forgotten that her children, who she’s constantly singing like Pavarotti (God rest his soul) for all to hear how much she loves them and would do anything to protect them, yet she will destroy their father (ok she say save, I say destroy) in a room full of people, all for what, so she can kill two Birds (pun intended) with false information. Well, let me tell you Carly Corinthos-Alcazar-Jax, as much as I enjoy her, her schemes and evilness at times, this is one time I will be doing cartwheels when this all blows up in your face and trust me it will and the consequences are going to be far reaching. I think she’s been too vindictive in her vendetta against Dante and her hatred of Brenda and is not thinking about the repercussion from her making such a public statement with her alleged information.

    I’m trying to understand how/when/where the Balkan first contacted Siobhan to get her to do his bidding. Was it before or after she was kidnapped? I imagine this all happened off screen. And why would he need her to get Lucky to take her to the wedding when he’s managed to finagle himself as an attorney at Diane’s law firm and is now Dante/Brenda’s attorney and could easily get an invite if he asked. When did he abduct Siobhan’s sister? So many questions that I hope TSW address soon because my head is spinning trying to get everything straight.

    Ran, wrote [What does Brenda owe Lulu?] I’m so with you on this. That whole scene left a bitter taste in my mouth and solidified why I hate the Dante/Lulu pairing. Brenda owed Lulu not a darn thing and I for one didn’t get why Brenda felt the need to go over there and make Lulu feel better in the first place, when Lulu was nothing but rude/hostile/mean to her. I also didn’t get why Dante had to go and lay Lulu finding out at Brenda’s feet. He needs to man-up and handle his deception with Lulu like a man. It’s a good thing I never and still haven’t bought them as a couple. Dante is the one doing the horizontal with Lulu, not Brenda who owes Lulu no explanation or to beg Dante's forgivess for profess his continued love for Lulu. Brenda also does not deserve all the anger and hostility that Shrew-ella is sprewing at her. And Lulu calling Brenda “needy” had me laughing because that whole scene i was like “pot meeting kettle”. She’ll be a fool twice if she takes him back which we know she will, considering he’s hiding another one of Brenda's major secret.

    Maxie also needs to tone down her hostility towards Brenda. Like Lulu told her she’s not the first girl that Spinelli has gone goo-goo-ga-ga over and blaming Brenda for taking Spinelli’s attention away from her when she was the one that wanted out of the relationship is ridiculous.

    Scrimmage, excellent topic/rant re: “on the issue of overmedicating children and the general population”. Enjoyed the responses and agreed with most.

    ***off topic***

    Lily hunter – I have some knowledge of the competition between pharmaceutical companies in the market to treat diabetics. I can only imagine how absolutely giddy they are at the increase of type II diabetes in the adult population. Since the medication is fairly standard, the real contest is in the testing and delivery systems for the people who must test themselves often and inject themselves on a regular or daily basis. As we speak, they’re all racing to be the company that develops the “iphone” of disposable injectors. The problem is finding something that the elderly sufferers with poor eyesight and limited manual dexterity can use safely, and then convincing doctors to recommend one system over all the other competing systems out there to their patients.

    As my Dad would’ve said: “Whatta racket!”

    Hello all:

    Hope everyone is doing well!

    I have to defend my girl Lulu...Yes, Dante is a liar and most likely she will take him back, but Dante has never called her a wh0re, left her at the altar, had his enemies shoot her house up almost killing her, sent his enforcer to tell her on her wedding day that he not going to marry her.

    In addition, he has never planted a bomb in someone car and almost blew his daughter to smitering, shot a cop in cold blood, slept with his BFF sister and put a hit out on him, drugged an underage girl and force her to strip…I could go on, but BRENDA is more than happy to marry the person who done all that and more.

    Brenda basically told Sonny all his antics are irrelevant because HE IS THE LOVE OF HER LIFE AND HE IS MISUNDERSTOOD, so I totally agree with all that say she owes LULU nothing, because who in their right mind would want to take relationship advise from Brenda. Lulu should have laugh in her face and kept laughing as she slams the door in her face.

    The mere fact that she is telling Lulu to forgive the man who betrayed her with no reservations shows that Brenda is totally clueless. She needs to continue be the damsel in distress she has become and mind her damn business, because she is about to marry a self absorb, manic depressive/bipolar, and temper tantrum throwing psycho…who the hell care what she has to say about anything.

    ransomha, Girl you had me wiping my eyes when you said Aidan is an infant. He doesn't know if he's at Nic's or Times Square. You are so right on that.

    Posted by ransomha at Saturday, January 22 2011 08:06 PM

    STORM: Give him time, they haven't know each other that long.

    Cowboy: Glad I could make you laugh, you are the funny one, crack me up almost daily.

    I can't figure this out, people can say bad things about Sonny, who I love and I don't feel the need to defend him but, with Liz, I come to her defense. Do I have a girl crush on her?

    Posted by STORM04 at Saturday, January 22 2011 08:12 PM

    Rans: LMOA. Deep down inside I think you know everything we say about Sonny is true.

    Hi all

    Off topic - saw The Kings Speech last night -really really good - then my hubby and I snuck in to see Barneys Version - without paying-very wicked for Canadians - which wasnt that good. I thought it was a soap opera - but not it a good way - and couldnt help but think that our people do a better job day in day out.

    Can hardly wait for this week - finally we are supposed to get the pay off for the prison story. I still think this was a story worth playing out - i know a lot didnt like it- but soaps often are the first to take on unpopular subjects. I have been watching soaps since i was in early teens - and am now 55 - so its been a long time. I have never seen an actor develop as much as Chad has over these last months.

    As a relative newbie to GH i have been watching some old youtube footage - especially Jason (who i really like) with Alan - good stuff. I hadnt realized that Sonny had shared his pasta with Emily - though i think i knew about Sam.

    Am enjoying as always all the comments - hope this week lives up to my high expectations ! Enjoy Sunday - last full football day for this football widow - then just the super bowl party for my husband and his friends - where i have won the pool for the last 2 years!
