You all have to read the Two Scoops Alex North Memorial awards. :-) soapcentral.com/days/content/scoop/twoscoops/2013/131230.php

I think you will agree wth many of the choices.

I especially loved the Roman rogue comments. :-) :-)

I'm tired of the drug s/l's.
Where is the romance and love in the afternoon??
I'm tired of the arguing and the anguish.

It's easy to write about the "bad".

Show us what you have about the "good".

Leave Fifty Shades for the movie!! 8)

My dissertation regarding that promo. I haven't seen it and don't care to. I never watched EJ with any of the others if I could help it and I sure wasn't wasting my time on Sami with her ex. This is so out of character for EJ. It makes no sense so I am not even going there....but before when we were all trying to figure out how long this stalemate of EJ with Sami would last there was this girl who told us about a acting class she went to and how there were some writers and directors telling the actors what they wanted to see in their scenes. She mentioned how the writers all thought that we the audience wanted that one guy who would do anything and everything for their woman. One of the actress mentioned that it was unreal and the writers said thats what we expected. Funny but when I hear songs on the radio - like Grenade from Bruno Mars - I always associated it with EJ. And TKO again with EJ. The story of my life - EJ again. Do you see where I am going with this - and YET - I've also always associated EJ with Rhett Butler from Gone with the Wind. So I may not watch this shite that will be on Days for a bit but I get it -if I think of EJ as Rhett, he didn't get Scarlett's undivided and total love so he did associate with Belle Watling the town prostitute and drank, gambled and still longed for his Scarlett. I don't like it but it is what it is.......


Bruno Mars Grenade

But, darling, I'd still catch a grenade for you (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Throw my hand on the blade for you (yeah, yeah, yeah)
I'd jump in front of a train for you (yeah, yeah, yeah)
You know I'd do anything for you (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Oh, I would go through all this pain
Take a bullet straight through my brain
Yes, I would die for you, baby
But you won't do the same

No, you won't do the same
You wouldn't do the same
Oh, you'd never do the same
Oh, no no no




TKO - Justin Timberlake


I don't understand it, tell me how could you be so low
Been swinging after the bell and after all of the whistle blows
Tried to go below the belt, through my chest
Perfect hit to the dome, dammit babe
This ain't the girl I used to know, no, not anymore
TKO

[Post-Chorus: Justin Timberlake]
I'm out for the count, yeah, girl, you knock me out
It's just a TKO
I'm out for the count, yeah, girl, you knock me out
With a TKO, T-T-TKO
Out for the count, girl, you knock me out
With a TKO
Now, I'm out for the count, yeah, girl, you knock me out
With a TKO



Story of my life lyrics

The story of my life
I take her home
I drive all night to keep her warm
And time... is frozen (the story of, the story of)
The story of my life
I give her hope
I spend her love
Until she's broke
Inside
The story of my life (the story of, the story of)

Written on these walls are the colors that I can't change
Leave my heart open but it stays right here in its cage
I know that in the morning now I see us in the light upon a hill
Although I am broken, my heart is untamed, still

And I'll be gone, gone tonight
The fire beneath my feet is burning bright
The way that I've been holding on so tight
With nothing in between

Written in these walls are the stories that I can't explain
I leave my heart open but it stays right here empty for days
She told me in the morning she don't feel the same about us in her bones
Seems to me that when I die these words will be written on my stone

Yes, AMLD, I, too, flash back to "Gone with the Wind" and see EJ as "Rhett" and Sami as "Scarlet"--two strong, stubborn, and competitive lovers who let their mutual desire to WIN get in the way. We can only guess (hope?) that Rhett will return to Tara and reunite with Scarlet, who probably will be more than willing. Maybe, even if Ejami is shattered, it can be repaired sooner, rather than later.

fading even though it never could compare to Margaret Mitchell's beautiful book and pairing there was a sequel called Rhett Butlers people....I recommend it - they did finally figure it out and said to hellWiththe past and everything else -we belong together no matter what...............EJAMI EJAMI EJAMI always and forever EJAMI.

I heard the backlash is ugly. Facebook comments even had to be take down for a day. I still haven't seen it and I doubt with the schedule I have this month I can watch any soap - so I will come here and see what you all had to say and what you watched.

I just don't like that they are making EJ seem as stupid as he was when he was with the fake belly. The character was finally built up so that most people got him. Then poof the idiot writers get a hair up their butt and think lets do this - or that - and they loose us.

I think that is what has me so disgusted...those dumb@zz writers...look what they have done to Ej...they don't know a thing about Ej.
I barely got past when they had Ej laughing and listening to when RoboRafe was having sex with Sami...I almost did not make it back from that...but I love Ej and now this...and no matter how many say this is Sami's fault, I will never go that way as this is all on Ej.
I was so disgusted when he grabbed her and then the kissing...if they go farther I just won't.
The writers are killing the show for me.
I do not take any cheating lightly...not even on soaps.

Rave- that they gave us Nicole and Daniel kiss , Christmas together and just being together, although it is unfortunately fake romance, but friendship, which I hope still to blossom!!!! Loved them together!!!

Rant-
Ejami storyline of the moment- rubbish, all over the place, nonsensical,.... I loved how they worked on EJ's character and now they made it all come crushing down- they should have made EJ a bad man by double crossing Abigail or even cleverly blackmailing her- not kissing her!

I see a bad pattern here- a character leaves or dies, like Chad left, and Jack died- and bam- the connection to them is severed with a chainsaw and the characters that stay on are put together in a quick nonsensical way- like Jennifer going crazy over Daniel after she buried Jack, what two minutes! and the same now- EJ and Chad had a great brotherly connection, and Chad is away, and he is kissing his ex like two minutes after he had left.
I guess, it's ok, cos it is a soap?! Well, not!!!

I have watched DOOL since the begining, with the odd break, and I never remember being as fed up and angry as I am right now. ALL the stories are crap.

I have zero interest in watching another stupid murder involving Sami, a bunch of drug addicts (Brady, Teresa and JJ), priests being raped, porn sex (Brady and Kristen) and the coming big event a marriage between NuWill and Sonny; however they pale in comparison to this latest bunch of BS we are supposed to swallow EJ having sex with this unattractive, whiny twit Abby. Just how is EJ having sex with this twit supposed to stop this idiot from telling Hope????

Really are we supposed to believe that in nearby Chicago (where I gather Salem is) EJ takes his boat to Smith Island to a cabin used by the Hortons in the summer ~) to meet Abby. How stupid do these writers think we are, I just checked the weather in Chicago and it is -22C with a wind chill of -35C. I guess EJ owns an ice breaker LOL.

I am so angry with eveything happening on this show now that I am taking another break and this time I am no sure if I will ever return.
I don't think these writers ever had any intention of having EJAMI together and having a wedding so they can shove their show as far as I am concerned.
