Soap operas

OK, I know I shouldn't, but in an attempt to get the kids out of the house in the afternoon, I announced the tv as mommy's from noon until three. Mommy's programs. You're welcome to stay if you want, but...well, you get the idea.

So, for kicks, I turned it over to ABC and All My Children, One Life to Live, and General Hospital. I used to watch ABC quite regularly before moving to the UK in '99. I grew up on these. And even though I don't know half the characters any more, there's still an odd comfort hearing a familiar voice in the background while I'm working around the house.

I'm not really watching. It's background noise. But occasionally something makes me just pause for a moment to find out what's going on. Like hearing Dixie's name on AMC. Or seeing the guy who was one of the Lucky's on GH now playing JR on AMC. Today's was something that made my jaw drop.

Luke is married to Tracy Quartermaine? When the hell did that happen?!?

Luke was my first antihero tv crush. Loved Luke. Loved loved loved Luke. Watched him and Laura religiously all the way until she disappeared. Watched Luke religiously afterward until he left the show. And now he's married to Tracy?

I'm thisclose to going online to read histories to just find out what the hell is going on. Somebody stop me.
