Is Reality TV Killing Traditional Soap Operas?

When As The World Turns was cancelled in 2009 that caught my attention because it was noted as being the longest running soap opera on television.  I didn't watch it so I wasn't losing any "connections".  However, I was sad for those actors that would be losing their jobs and it's just sad the idea that the longest-running-soap-opera-on-television wasn't needed any more.

Now, with the news of One Life To Live and All My Children being cancelled I'm a bit miffed.  AMC was my soap opera.  Those were my stories.  Because of All My Children I was pleasantly introduced to Josh Duhamel.  Ah... he and Greenlee.  Now THAT was a love story.  Yes, she died and he was so heart broken that he left Pine Valley.  And yes, Greenlee came back to life and once she discovered her love was gone began to wreak havoc on her arch nemesis, now her best friend, Kendall.  Who cares that none of this is possible???  THAT'S the whole POINT of soap operas!

I believe that some people have been watching these shows for so long that they want their lives to be filled with drama and they create ridiculous shenanigans to fill their time.  They've created their own drama and now they have found people to film it.  And many, many, many of us watch it.  It's our own fault!  Those that watch reality t.v. are killing scripted soap operas.  Oh the over-acted humanity!

Just my thoughts.

I will miss you All My Children.  Thanks for Josh Duhamel :->

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

How to Help Your Loved One to Recover

It can be very difficult to have a loved one who is battling an addiction. It can be hard to know what to do or how to help. Luckily there are many resources, programs and even rehabilitation centers that are specifically designed to not only help you to know what to do but also to help your loved one to recover.

Addiction is a very real problem all over the world, and in the United States alone there are ever 23 million Americans who are struggling with some sort of addiction. Over 64 percent have had to deal with the emotional aspect of having someone close to them who was battling an addiction.

You can feel very helpless when you are close to someone who is battling an addiction, and it can be hard to know what to do. You don't want to make your loved one resent you or to be angry with you because you are trying to get them to stop, but you also can't just stand by and watch. An addiction, no matter what it is to, can consume the person who is addicted and it can also be fat…
