Yesterday I got my contributor's copies for The Clockwork Jungle Book (Shimmer #11), and they are gorgeous. Can hardly wait to read it through.

Chapter 21 of the Jo book is still being written, rather slowly, though I can hardly wait to get to the upcoming chapters because wheeee, I'm getting towards the really good stuff towards the end! I hope this weekend I can get a ton of work done on chapter 21.

The Garage Kitty seems to be okay in spite of the cold weather we've been having (which is more than I can say for myself--my allergies are going to town today!). I'm not sure of the exact date, but I know I've just passed the one-year anniversary of becoming the servant of the Garage Kitty (though I knew of her existence for a long time before that). Little did I know, that cold day a year ago when she meowed plaintively at me, that soon my pantry would be full of Fancy Feast.

Last but not least: Claire Labine answers your questions, courtesy of welovesoaps.net!

For [community profile] ljs (and other soap fans on my FL): a great audio interview with Lynn Herring on the We Love Soaps podcast. She talks at length about Lucy Coe, Kevin Collins, General Hospital, Port Charles and more!

In honor of Herring, here's a 1995 clip from GH in which Lucy strips for charity at the Nurses' Ball, back when Claire Labine was writing the show and utilizing the entire cast to perfection! I particularly enjoy Lucy's cavorting ex-husbands Tony and Alan...

Ryan's Hope continues to be awesome. But I'm going to post about General Hospital, which continues to mostly suck.

Tomorrow (Sunday) morning at 10 am, Soapnet is airing a 1995 ep of General Hospital (the Claire Labine era!): the death of Robin Scorpio's first love, Stone Cates. I will be watching with a box of Kleenex.

last week's GH: the return of Sarah Brown, etc. )

I was going to write an angry post about how much General Hospital sucks right now, but instead I will just link to Serial Drama's hilarious take on the subject: A Christmas Carol, in which Claire Labine and the ghosts of Gloria Monty and Douglas Marland take to task current GH scribe Bob Guza:

"Bob," the ghost of Gloria Monty says coldly, "I believe you've met Claire Labine".

"You're dead?" he asks.

"No, I only wish I was after seeing what you did to my show," she answers ruefully...

This clip (from late 1993 I believe) is the first appearance of Lois Cerullo of Bensonhurst: rock'n'roll manager, math whiz, future wife of Ned Ashton, and one of my favorite GH characters (but only when played by Rena Sofer), not to mention one of my very favorite characters created by Claire Labine. (Why do I not have a Lois icon?)

Clips of Ned/Lois, my favorite couple from the Claire Labine years on General Hospital, have started to show up on YouTube. In this clip, Ned spins a whopper of a tale about his mother Tracy to Lois and her mom in Brooklyn, and in this one, Ned's double life (as CEO Ned Ashton and rock star Eddie Maine) is starting to catch up with him. Wally Kurth and Rena Sofer were a RL couple at the time, and it shows. God, I miss Sofer as Lois Cerullo, one of GH's most intelligent and vibrant characters (and probably my favorite Labine heroine besides Sarah Felder's Siobhan Ryan), and god I wish Labine were still in charge over there...

Meanwhile, I've really been enjoying the Daytime Confidential podcasts. Hosts Luke and Lisa cover all the current daytime soaps. I don't always agree with them, but their passion for the genre, their humor, and their contempt for the crap that often winds up on screen these days make them entertaining listening.
