  1. I liked yesterday's scenes, but there wasn't enough T&L for me. Nice to see Robert again, though, and Tristan was acting his little heart out. About the bake sale: I have a few more avenues to try, if I get shut down there, I think I may just wait until after the first of the year. That may be best, anyway. I personally think a bake sale during the holidays would do the most business, but it is also hardest to find a place to have one(obviously). Not giving up yet..... Around the net: Can I just say, in between this and one of my other shows I dare to follow, the warring fanbases give me a headache. It is so tiring. But the LnL fanbase did it to themselves. TIIC never promised an LnL reunion. And I thought it was general knowledge that GF had been on recurring since what, June or July? Recurring means we may see her again if they have something for her to do, and then again, we might not. Truth is, they never really had anything for her to do. And if Genie was talking up LnL like I've read some people say..that's her mistake. I don't believe for a New York minute she was ever told that is what the story would be. I think she said what she said to get the last few LnL'ers stirred up so they'd make phone calls, etc, to TPTB. I truly believe GF has been in limbo almost since coming back, and I think it's obvious to anyone with eyeballs that they had no longterm plans for her, ever. It's beyond stupid to say "Tracy was put in Laura's place in this SL". That irritates me so much. People are imagining a conspiracy and it's "poor Genie" all over again. When I honestly believe she was never promised a darn thing, at least not after going on recurring, she wasn't. Recurring players don't even get a contractual guarantee, how are they going to get promised a story? Ridiculous. As far as the last scene between Tony and Genie, it looked like Goodbye to me. Of course, it looked like goodbye with Tracy and Luke, too, so who knows? I just think people see what they want to see. Even considering that though, I have no idea how anyone would get "LnL is the story" out of those scenes. I kept thinking "Luke's death is the story". Because all his goodbyes smacked of "this is the last time I will see this person". But anyway......as long as Luke treats Tracy like she deserves, I'm okay with it. Kind of wish we'd get a Robert/Tracy/Luke triangle, though. TR is STILL a hottie.
  2. Well, the internet has been mostly quiet about it I guess. I'll have to watch and then post my opinion. I'm just glad she is on at all, so I have a reason to NOT delete my recording. PS Remos, I have been shut down on all avenues about a place to have my bake sale. I have a few lone places left to try.....I hate to give up, but it looks like if I'm going to have one, it will have to be after the first of the year.
  3. I didn't see any pics of Tracy when I clicked on that link. I am okay with being totally spoiled though, as far as any scenes or whatnot. Has anyone here ever hosted a bake sale, and do you have any helpful hints if so? I want to do one, but have been calling around looking for a place to have it. Either they have no open slots between now and the end of the year, or they don't do that kind of thing, or they haven't called me back yet. It's dead end city so far, and I haven't even gotten a group together, just trying to find a place to have it. Verrrry frustrating. Funny girl, I replied to you.
  4. Thanks for the heads up, hooked. Remos I'm not too concerned with what others will say about Tracy being at the christening in place of Lulu's mother and father. Lulu needs a parental figure there, and her own aren't/can't be there. I don't see a thing wrong with it. Anyone who doesn't like it can take a walk. As I said, I don't post anywhere but here anymore, and then only rarely that. Now, if I still posted at SOC, I'm sure the ridiculous things they'd say would give me a migraine, but since I don't....c'est la vie. Actually, I realize Maxie and Spin are the God Parents for plot point reasons, but Tracy should have been that baby's God Mother.
  5. I can just imagine the outrage when Tracy dares to sub for Luke and Laura as Lulu's parental presence. Better have plenty of aspirin on hand. At least I would if I still really posted anywhere, but since I don't.....Eh. They'll just have to get over it. I hope this Friday isn't Tracy's only day on.
  6. Luke is back on Monday and we don't get Tracy until maybe FRIDAY?? *kicks show* I am with ya'll. No Jane/Tracy...I just go along and hit "delete" to get that day's show off my DVR. I will say, I did catch Crazy Heather showing up at Franco's, and wanting her BLT. And Julian shooting his man. But those are bits and pieces I catch on SN if I am home at night and flipping channels. Otherwise, I just can't with GH. So many of the characters are so lackluster. Why are Felix and Carly even sharing scenes? They don't really know each other. It's all so random and odd. I guess Carly doesn't really have a friend, though. I would not mind her and Tracy TOO much. I loved the Ally/Tracy scenes on The City with LSW and JE. But then, Ally wasn't a banshee like Carly. Carly and Tracy are a bit too much alike.
  7. I'm sure she isn't there, it's likely all about Sonny. About the vets. I think some are needed at all times. And I think a good writer COULD potentially come up with stories for all of them. It's not so much that they "don't fit" or whatever. It's several reasons. The cast is overblown already, and the vets that were here already weren't/aren't being utilized properly. I think the vets are what ties soaps to history. There is no other medium like that, where you can do real flashbacks of real events thirty years ago and show the same actors. And yes it's pure nostalgia, but it also helps anchor the character to the canvas and anchor the audience to the character. So, in short: if you have them, use them. But don't shove them down our throats, and most importantly, don't waste them. If the ONLY reason you have them there is for said nostalgia or history, make allusions to them now and then, and bring them back for holidays, funerals, etc. But making them a part of the recurring regular cast, when you have no intention of doing anything with them, is kind of silly.
  8. Exactly. I normally love Kin and his scenes with Genie were so boring, and he was fine with others so I have to assume it's her. I will say, their final scenes were some of the best acting either of them have done since coming back. Hmm. Interesting if Tracy is with Luke on the search. Can't really see her up and leaving town right now with Monica being fired and AJ in jail, though. Is Sebastian back as Jerry? Or another actor? As far as TPTB, I think they brought back most of these vets with no idea what to do with them. Poor Ian Buchanan has been completely wasted. Gosh how I wanted a Duke/Tracy hook up. They would have been far more entertaining than Duke and dry old Anna Banana.
  9. Remos, I can't actually petition to be the guardian. If I could, I think I would. I live in a border city, and technically, the baby and the boyfriend live in one state and I live in another. CPS tends to want to keep it in the family, so if and when they find out, they'll search high and low for an acceptable family member first before they put the child in care. I don't think there is such a person, but who knows? From what was said yesterday, I do think the mom will come back soon. I hope so. I do think it won't be long though, before CPS has to step in because the boyfriend has no legal or biological rights. I am going to talk to my co worker about it today if we have time. I might like to contact him to see if he needs help in the meantime. The baby does not appear to be neglected or abused in any way, so that's good. It's just frustrating. But, back to GH: I did catch the end yesterday, looks like Julian is really a bad guy, since he shot one of his men and Ava kicked the poor guy's body off the docks into the water. Crazy Heather is CRAZY. I don't understand what the point is of bringing her back now.
  10. Real life rant: Why is it that there are couples struggling to have children-single people who would love to be parents-then you have these women just leaving their babies behind with boyfriends (well, ex boyfriends I guess, now)?? I mean, she left a note. Adorable little girl. And I just don't get it. I don't. I mean, I'm not a parent, and I know it can be overwhelming and all.....but still. IF, truly IF, you have first sought out help and can't get it (okay, so the family, mom and two sisters, are either alcoholics or crack heads or both), then you should give the baby up properly. Don't just leave it with a stranger for him to grow attached to the baby, then come back when you're done doing your thing, just to break the man's heart (because he refuses to call CPS, although technically, we really should report it, we can get in trouble if we don't, but I won't, so.....) and more importantly mess with the kid's mind. She's just a baby and doesn't know what's going on, but it just blows my mind. How people can do that. Precious baby girl, if I could get away with it I would have taken her home with me. People suck sometimes and their children bear the worst of it. Anyhoo...carry on.
  11. Eeeee Jane gets to tape with the Julian actor, finally? Me likey. How much do I love that Luke might be dreaming of Tracy? Assuming she isn't there in the flesh. Me likey that, too. I guess I get Heather lurking around the Q's, but she's never shown much interest in Liz or Carly before, so why spy on them? Why not spy on Franco when he was alone? And why spy at all? What's up with that? The only one of those on recurring who haven't taped since July that I care about is really just Kin. He deserves better than the silly scraps they are giving him. But TBH I never expected any of the 80's actors who have come back in the last six months/year to get much of anything in terms of a SL. They are there as window dressing, to make the show feel more like oldschool GH. Sometimes, like with Mac/Flea getting married, they get a minute with something to do, but they'll never be a major part of goings on ever again. Heck, Mac ain't even commish anymore and hasn't been for a while. But Anna is, and barely gets much to do herself. So I guess I should stop complaining so much about Tracy-she's still the vet with the best airtime and focus, as paltry as it sometimes is. Better what she's got, than to be given what some other vets get.
  12. Thanks hooked for the info. I hope things are going better for you, on a personal level. I thought I had read that Genie was not on contract anymore (I never realized she had a contract) and was put on recurring, and if so, who knows when she'll be back? Of course, I feel Jane is almost recurring herself, which really frustrates me, as there is so much that can still be done with Tracy. I really liked the Q stuff yesterday, and I felt sorry for Franco all alone on his birthday. I think the mystery person at the Q's may be a back from the dead Emily. Just speculation, of course it would have to be a different actress as NL is on some other show, isn't she?
  13. I just know that without Tracy, GH doesn't interest me. And since she isn't on, I can't really think of anything to post. LOL In some ways, this is just like Guza. The only difference is, Jane's material, when she gets it, mostly has more depth and heart. OTOH, it's really weird because there have been times in this new regime when she's been even more one dimensional than Guza wrote her. But then she'll have great moments, like the speech to Luke about not wanting crumbs. Obviously some on the writing staff "get" her, and some don't. I am afraid to take GH off the DVR because I might miss an unspoiled Tracy day, but I have been doing nothing but deleting episodes since she was last on, so....IDK.
  14. I think it's more than fair to be harsh about a show that has a character learn one of her only friends was just killed, and then NO follow up. That's just stupid. No ifs, ands, or buts. For some reason, they want this show to have this big, overblown cast. Fine, whatever. I don't like it, but what can you do? However, I think the size of the cast shouldn't have anything to do with how they do this all.the.time. Take Franco for instance. We know he's "missing" and it takes THREE episodes to pick back up and show he's climbed out the window. The pacing is horrible on this show. By the time they return to a plot point, people either have forgotten or lost interest. I always thought it was a rule, never leave your audience hanging for long. A Friday cliff hanger should always be addressed on Monday, for instance. Not the following Wednesday or Thursday, if at all. And that is the equivalent of what they are doing. The cliffhanger loses emotional impact when you have to wait more than one episode for the reactions. I mean, Tracy and Dante are obviously not still standing in the Q sitting room. So the next time we see Tracy, her reactions to Connie's death will be old news. Especially if she's not on at all for September. They just missed a great opportunity for JE to do some good emotional work. And for what? What is going on, story wise, that is just SO important, they couldn't spare JE a five minute reaction scene to Connie's death? Nothing, that's what. And that is what is so frustrating. I could almost excuse it if a major, hot story was playing out and they couldn't spare the time for Tracy's grief. But there is no such thing happening just now. I can't think of a single story or plot point I'd call riveting or "hot". It's not that the show is boring, really. But there's nothing earth shattering going on, either.
  15. Not only did they NOT follow up on it yesterday, I don't think Tracy was on today, either. Oh, well. God forbid they waste a minute pimping their faves. I guess every regime is that way.
  16. *Cries* I'm going to miss Tracy and Connie being buds. Crap, show. Why you gotta do that? Whyyyy??
  17. No worries. I want a happy ending for Tracy, because I'm a TracyFF. I think out of all the characters on canvas, she deserves it more than most. Mainly because just about everyone else has had one really GRAND love story. If they want to sell me Lacy as the grand love story, with Luke being everything she needs and wants him to be, fine. But they have a long way to go. I get loving Lacy. In my Grinch's heart, I still do, too. And yet, again, as a TracyFF, how can I root for them when Tracy just admitted (in PC time) less than a day ago, that Luke could NOT give her what she needs? He has said that. SHE has said that. So I can't in good faith root for them until and unless that changes. It wouldn't make any sense for me. And again honestly...watching the show, watching Luke, seeing how TG is playing the scenes, saying the lines...he seems so DISINTERESTED in a romance with anyone. Yes it could be that he's playing sick. So I'll give him the tiny benefit of the doubt for now. I am always a "wait and see" kinda girl. My attitude and perceptions can change in a minute.
  18. You might be inclined to agree, with what? Which part of it? I said several different things so I'm not sure which part you are talking about. I wasn't talking in terms of their chemistry, anyway. Simply making the statement that based solely on how TG is playing his scenes, that's how I am seeing it. Of course he IS playing a man that's dying, but he's been in a hospital bed before and still flirted like crazy. He didn't even make the effort to flirt with Holly, not really. There was an energy there with the opposite sex that isn't there now. Not just Tracy, to be fair. I've noticed it since the start of the year. Something is missing. But of course TG and JE still have awesome chemistry. It's not that. It's a feeling I am getting from watching the show, that this is where Luke is headed- to the old bachelorhood he talked about onscreen not that long ago. I honestly think if you could shoot Luke full of truth serum, he'd say the reason he didn't fight for Laura, but can't give Tracy everything she needs, as Tracy admitted yesterday..I think Luke would say, that his perfect woman would be bits and pieces of both women together. And since you can't cut them up....I think Luke has decided to be with neither, because he can't be with both. It's nothing being said. It's not even anything being done. It's just...a feeling. And, I could be totally wrong and Luke could turn around and totally sweep Tracy off her feet and make me believe it. If that happens, great. My concern is Tracy's happiness. If it is to be with Luke, then that's that. As long as she is TRULY happy, so am I. But I want the show to sell it to me. Not just throw them together like a ham and cheese sandwich. Tracy deserves a gourmet meal, not a school lunch.
  19. Honestly, with the more time that passes, I keep getting the feeling we won't be seeing "romantic Luke in a pairing" ever again. Couple that with what Tracy and Connie talked about yesterday, and I just think Lacy may stay that way-as BFF's. And to be honest, while the missed opportunities are sad, they are exactly that: missed. They are gone, and nothing is bringing them back. If they could write and mold Luke into the man I believe Tracy deserves, I'd rethink it. I just don't believe history is pointing us in that direction. However, to my ever lasting JOY, I don't think there's ever going to be some grand illustrious LnL reunion, either. Maybe one where he calls her an old sweater and pecks her on the cheek. But nothing "couple-y". But, you know, they could in the end go there for Lacy. As Tracy said yesterday though, she seems pretty resigned to it not happening. It's obvious TRACY is his best friend, and I'm okay with that. I have said previously several times, and I'll say again: I think Tracy's best scenes are with non romantic partners. I think it's because she's not trying to impress them. Much like yesterday with Connie-she's just being herself. There's a facade Tracy puts on with most men (though not Luke, ever), that I just don't like. And yeah, Tracy does deserve a man into her fully. I will wait though, to see if Tracy and Derek/Julian have any chemistry.
  20. I loved Tracy/Connie yesterday. We get good stuff and then they kill off Tracy's friends. I normally hate "girlfriends" on soaps. But I liked the two pairs from yesterday-Maxie/Lulu and Connie/Trace. *stomps foot* It isn't fair. I came to a conclusion yesterday, though. Tracy needs to stand her ground and get over Luke. They can still be friends. But that woman needs two things: #1, she needs a hottie like Joe Jr. Luke..though I appreciate and respect TG's skills....and how he can, or used to, pull off the sexy, has never been a hottie. #2, she needs a man all about her. And this needs to happen yesterday. I do enjoy the BFF pairing of Tracy/Luke, though. In many ways, it is far better than them as a romantic coupling.
  21. Um...did Laura lie and tell Luke that Tracy did NOT tell her what was going on ? Because that's what it sounded like to me. Laura tried to brush it off as some sort of soulmate connection, that she just "knew". Wow. Okay. About Tracy. I have a feeling that she is just going to be relegated to being Luke's BFF and that she's not going to get anything remotely resembling a love interest ever again. With Luke or anyone. But I also get that feeling with Geary, that he's done doing the romantic thing (although HE is probably happy about it) and that he's perfectly content to just be pals with his ex loves and wives. That's all well and good, but MyTracy needs a happy ending. If TG doesn't want to do that, get her another man, STAT. Except for Scott. It's not that I don't think he and Jane can't bring it like they did last time. I just think Tracy needs it from someone with no agendas, who means it. Oh, she had it...and they killed him. I miss Joe Jr. Sexy man. *sniff* I still think she'd have interesting chemistry with Julian. We'll see.
  22. So I finally caught up, and I actually watched most of last week even though Tracy wasn't on. I don't care for about half of the characters on the show, but I can't say the show is boring right now. Except for Mac and Felicia, but then, they've always bored me, that's nothing new. Still, I only skipped through maybe 30% of the scenes, as opposed to about 90% of the scenes under Guza. I am curious: if Jerry IS dead, or even if he isn't-who was it Obrecht was talking to when saying Cesar was in jail, when she had the Robin stand in in hiding(as a "flashback") I don't think it was Jerry. Everyone speculated someone "big" was involved with them. I wonder if we are going to find out we are right. But who could it be, if not Jerry? Still love Britt, still like Ava but she's kind of a loony, and when she's not a loony, she does the Robin Christopher Betty Boop thing as Ava that makes me grit my teeth. Do like her with Tracy, though. I actually like Morgan, and I see the Jason/AJ comparisons with Michael/Morgan, and Michael being the golden boy with Morgan the AJ like screw up. They've even given them both addictions. Wouldn't it be cool for AJ to reach out to Morgan-and watch Sonny and Michael's reactions to this? Plus, I really can't stand Kiki, and I don't care that Morgan has deceived her. Emma Sams looks really old. I never thought I would miss Sean Donnelly, he always bored me before, but him as a "guest" is okay. Nice to see John Reilly. My favorite part of the last few weeks: Luke telling the woman at the bank he was doing all this for a woman, alias "Spanky". Not LAURA. Spanky. Did the small squee at that. Tracy still needs another man to give Luke competition, though. Derek Wells/Julian Jerome is now here. He will do, I don't care that he is younger than her. So was Joe Jr. Besides, I'd rather Julian/Derek chase Tracy than end up with Alexis or Olivia, and let's face it-those two are the ones I can see this show trying to pair him with. Is Derek/Julian supposed to have had plastic surgery? Because Alexis didn't seem to recognize him at all, but he had a memory itch when he saw her. It would make sense that he did, especially since I think Real Julian would have naturally done something to hide his identity.
  23. Where is everyone? Is Tracy's stuff that boring right now, or is it that she just isn't on enough? She needs a man. If we can get Holly back , why can't we get Larry? Hugo and Jane used to be so hot. They could make the most innocent exchange sexy. Sorry I am so far behind, I have literally weeks of GH to catch up on. I was ill and didn't go to the ER like I should have, and have been trying to recoup on my own, which has been not fun. I am still not 100%, and dealing with work at the same time has not been a barrel of laughs. So, is Connie dead yet? Anyone think Tracy will be a suspect too? I did catch five minutes of them scheming before the Kiki is not a Q thing, but I think that's all I've gotten of GH in the last three weeks? So I'm out of the loop. Happy VERY belated birthday wishes Remos. Random quote I remember from Tracy and Larry years ago, don't even remember what they were discussing. Larry mentions something or someone being dangerous and Tracy says "don't worry, I'll protect you." And Larry, looks at her, raises eyebrows: "Oh, goody." SMEXY, I'm telling you. The things I can recall when I can't even remember sometimes where i put my keys....... ETA cute cat MsQ, but I don't know if that's normal behavior, LOL. She may need Kitty valium..... Remos and funny, I replied to your PM, sorry so late.............
  24. Well, technically Luke and Tracy aren't "with" each other. They are still maintaining the friends only guise. Either way, I just wanted Tracy to punch Laura in her smug face yesterday. Even if Tracy wanted to tell, it's really NOT her place, or her secret, to tell. And as much as some of us hate one dimensional sniping Tracy, I'd hate it even worse if she were a useless busibody like Laura. Because like it or not, it really ISN'T Laura's business about Luke if he doesn't want Laura to know. And it's not Tracy's secret to be telling. I just hate Laura, and I hated her even more in yesterday's scenes. I loved how I think JE played it like Tracy was restraining from telling Laura off in front of Lulu. Stupid, nosy, useless heifer. That said......"You're my YOU" is probably going to go down as one of my favorite Lacy scenes EVER. JE is so good, and she elevates Geary in a way no one else can these days. That scene made me do my "must not get sucked back in" mantra over and over. Because when Lacy are good, no other couple on this show currently, can touch them.
