This was inspired by another thread. This thread is for everyone to confess things about the soaps that are Embarrassing. Think of this as a "Truth or Dare" without the Dare.

 

I confess I love Susan Lucci.

I confess watching Openings for Soaps is my favorite pass time.

I had the Days of our Lives theme as my ringtone for a time...

I've cancelled on friends to drink and get caught up on my DVR'd soap episodes.

My ringtone used to be the AMC theme song when I had a cell.

 

I like watching soap openings as well.

 

I've tried to create some custom ones before. But, I never know what I'm doing.

 

I write soap fanfic.

 

First soap star I had a crush on (at 12 years old) was Trent Dawson. Henry Coleman on ATWT. First time he was on I was like...whoa. He's hot.

Yes. I also liked her with Sonny, briefly, but around the time Michael was a baby I wanted her to be with Jason and thought the actors had fantastic chemistry. Between the dull as hell triangle with Robin and all the stuff about Burton supposedly not caring for Brown, I lost interest.

Even though this is intended to be Truth or Dare without the dare, I'll introduce it into the conversation anyway by daring anyone to say something negative about their favorite soap character.

 

I'll follow through on that dare by saying that...

 

Erica Kane is one selfish heifer when it comes to her treatment of men.

Jonathan Randall is far too overdramatic to ever function in a healthy relationship.

Fox Crane was far too complacent in allowing the women he dated to treat him as second-string.

Todd Manning needs to stop using his self-hatred as a crutch for his shitty behavior and use it as an obstacle to completely overcome.

Robin Scorpio is far too tolerant of being treated shabbily by those that she loves.

Erica Kane should stop with the abandonment complex and see a shrink.

I still have vivid memories of ATWT and GL fanfiction sites that probably vanished from the Internet about 15 years ago.

Whenever I hear an ambulance go by, I hum the '80s theme to General Hospital in my head.  Or aloud if I'm alone.


I used to act out hypothetical All My Children scenes as my hypothetical character in the mirror.

I have never liked Laura Webber.

 

That's embarrassing only because I feel sometimes like I should like her. But...it never seems to happen.

All of my friends know that I'm a Susan Lucci freak and tease me about it going waaayyy back.  I have done more than a few school projects on soaps including two video projects on Susan.  One was a mess as we were not prepared to present that day and me and my partner got an "E".

For many years I did not realize that Nathan Purdee had left the role of Nathan on Y&R and had been replaced by Randy Brooks. I just thought he had played the role, left, and was replaced by that awful actor with the skunk hair. I was not paying enough attention to all of Y&R at that time to notice, just certain stories, when I had time. I didn't realize until reading up on the show quite some time later. I felt like a dumbass, even more than usual.

I had to record a five-minute audio on any topic for an audio production class in college -- this was way back in the early 80s. I did it on soaps, and scored it to "General Hospi-Tale" by the Afternoon Delights. 

 

I often find myself whistling or humming old soap themes and scores, sometimes in the presence of other people.

Sometimes I used to tell my friends about a cool story I'd seen on a soap, but then would never actually tell them it came from a soap, because I knew they'd give me [!@#$%^&*].
