My dog, Lola: "Oh thank God. This is the first day this week I wasn't forced to drink martinis to get through OLTL. Bless Dorian and her hats!"
Yes, I KNOW this picture is beyond random but I could not for the life of me find any pics from today's episode! I didn't just want to use a still picture from the intro, so I went with my go-to gal, Lola. She is an avid viewer so she is legit...fret not. Plus, this is only her second post appearance. She posed as Inez Sallinger back in January as some of you may recall. Anyway, I'm just so damn happy today's show was watchable!!! MUCH NEEDED!!! Plus, tomorrow's previews only looked "ok" so my motto for this week is "Thank God It's Thursday!!!"
It's amazing how one set of characters can just change the whole show. Granted, nothing life changing happened today but simply having Dorian and Vicki on made my day. Add that to the surprisingly lovely John and Echo scenes and then the Tomas and Tea scenes and well...the show ended today and I was downright pleased with what I had just watched and my favorite characters weren't even on...so that's GOOD!
Pleasant Surprise #1: Ok, I'm by no means the biggest Tea fan. I don't dislike her at all, but I really just feel nothing for her at all. However, I really was feeling this sassy little lawyer today. Her scenes with Tomas were surprisingly great! I also fight back the urge to jump off my bed and pretend make-out with Ted King...OMG, something about him is so attractive! Anyway, I felt I learned a hell of a lot more about Tomas today than all of his scenes with Blair combined. AND...I found these more enjoyable. He and Blair basically just sit across from each other and act all cryptic...as if they are playing a game of Clue or some shit. Ugh! Anyway, my heart was really breaking for Tea today and this has never happened before (not even really during her kidnapping stuff. no, I'm not cold...just apathetic). What bothers me is what in the hell is Tomas going to tell Blair? Oh hey, I've told you 50 mother effing times I'm leaving but I'm staying around...UGH. How annoying.
Pleasant Surprise #2: John and Echo were great. Wait, so is John just going to stay at the Minuteman for awhile? I must say it is probably better than his apartment. OMG...that tv?! Can those tvs even get cable? It was so dated! So, the Minuteman has a minibar and provides little things of booze but can't afford a cheap ass LCD flatscreen. My ass. Anyway, those scenes were surprisingly touching, too. I love that John told her something like "that is the longest I've ever talked before" LOL. I bet it was. I really can't believe he opened up to Echo about all that. Of course, we didn't get to hear much of it but at least someone was there to lend a sympathetic ear. HOWEVER, I still don't feel sorry for Echo in the slightest. Not that I don't sympathize with her but I just hate that Vicki is getting hurt by her.
Good God, speaking of Vicki. I'm at a loss for words!!! Dealing with Jessica and then Dorian has the scoop of the Echo/Charlie lovefest...ugh! Regardless, I'm glad that Dorian got to check out the pic with Charlie's watch while Vicki took the doctor's phone call. Oh, P.S., Dr. Levin is like the worst psychologist or psychiatrist EVER! Worse than Marty! (MISS HER!) I mean, all of his patients remain crazy AND Hannah O'Connor fooled him that she was schizo. God, we could keep going...even Lindsay Rappaport fooled him. How in the hell is this man still employed!?!?!? FIRE HIM, St. Anne's! I'm glad Dorian didn't drop the bomb on Vicki today, because, hell, Nicki or Jean or another alter may have come out and then you'd have Vicki and Jessica's alters running amuck. One person with an alter at a time, OLTL. Please don't tag team us with a mother daughter team. P.S. Dorian's hat has a life of its own and I freakin' love it.
Nice Kelly and Blair scenes. However, I have a beef: If Kelly is as hungover as she claims to be, then she needs to be in pajamas and looking like smashed ass. Who gets shitfaced and then goes and puts on some super cute outfit and lays on the couch?!?! NOT this girl! Good God, OLTL. Hell, put her in sexy pj's but a cute outfit is not believable! On another note, I love Blair's little outfit...she is too cute. So...I knew Blair would throw a gasket about the John shit. Hell, I don't blame her. To an extent, she is right about Kelly going after every guy she finds attractive. Also, I'm glad Kelly got through to Blair about Tomas. Hopefully she will make a move because just watching her sip wine that reminds her of Tomas well....that's just so effing boring that I'd rather watch James and Michelle talk while in Christian's art classroom. Over it.
A Joey special, huh? Yeah Joey, because your six-inch sub is gonna put Natalie in one helluva good mood! Ugh! Oh damn someone slap him!!! On a different note, I'm surprised Joey could make a sandwich. Plus, it looked pretty good. His private pre-K 4 teacher must be the shit! Damn, I need to go to Vicki's house for a sandwich! I'm used to sliced bread but she has like Subway bread and shit with good meat. Mmmmm. Oh, and PLEASE tell me someone on the set ate those sandwiches. If not, then that is such a waste of food. That was my main concern with the show today. I was so worried that food would go to waste! I feel that Joey has NO RIGHT to be upset about this Kelly shit. He is just so effing dumb!!! What does he expect!? He just MARRIED Aubs and he is gonna get mad about Kelly and John. WTF. I guess I can see why he would be upset about the thought of Kelly and Clint teaming up but that's it. Oh, no sympathy for Natalie still. Maybe spring needs to go on and get here so my heart will thaw out? It is still a chunk of ice where Natalie is concerned. Another thing...the loss of her baby weight at this stage in the game is absurd! At least put her in loose fitting clothes! Her body is rockin' but it's just sooooo not believable at this point! UGH. Whoa is this like the first time Joey and Natalie have actually been together alone in a scene?? I think so.
Quote of the Day comes from Dorian: "She's a lying, husband stealing, watch stealing...Dipsomanic!!!" Maybe I've been living under an effing rock but...what in the hell is a "dipsomaniac"?! Wait...I'm googling this shit right now. Oh, ok. It's a person who has an uncontrollable craving for alcohol. For all of you who didn't know what that meant, you learned it here. Who said this blog was not educational?
Oh, and good news! I think Marty is on next week...yay!!!! Hip Hip Hooray!!!
Also, I know Matthew is on next week and Nora tells him who she thinks killed Eddie. So, Dear OLTL, if you are only going to bring Matthew on once a week PLEASE don't make me hate him. This is so effed up. xoxo, ME. I'm sure he will defend Clint or act like an ass to Nora and then I'm sure he will leave in a huff and then run into Destiny and then be mean to her...UGH!!!
Kelly and Joey deserve each other. Bringing Natalie lunch and note?! WHAT?! "Hey, sorry I effed your fiance'. Here is a cheeseburger. I also threw in some fries because we had sex more than once I think. No hard feelings. Love ya, Kelly." WTF!!! Horrible idea!
Kinda missed Tess/Ford today...
OMG...NO TEENS were on today!!!! AH!!!!! What a day!
F*$K. Nevermind, teens are on tomorrow. I'll be drinking at 1 o'clock tomorrow, I'm sure. My dog AND me.
Today was great! Nothing awesome, but it was just all around good stuff. Thank God! See you kiddos tomorrow!
