So it was nail salon day this week, which means I got to indulge in USA TV for a whole hour.
And, lo, what nonsense is this….? It’s General Hospital! A new, enthralling, bizarre and unknown territory for me.
Between the cardboard sets, wide-eyed and overly dramatic acting the plot unravels to me. Generally, it has nothing to do with a hospital, but everyone is involved in some sort of jiggery-pokery with someone else, there are murders and double crossings, and people are called Spanky and Dante, just like in real life.
Go on, check it out. You know you want to…. 😉
Is it possible that people watch this religiously? I think so. I found myself checking out the what the back story to Spanky was, just so I had the full picture. Sigh.
Weather in Maryland
Right now, to be honest, the weather sucks. Where is this endless sunshine? Grumpy of the UK, I am.
My parents Skyped me yesterday and I think I saw a little amusement behind their eyes (could have just been a bad Skype connection) when they informed me that they had checked out our weather forecast and that it ‘really wasn’t looking that great.’ Hmmmm!
Tomorrow is the 4th of July. It’s got to be sunny for the parade, hasn’t it…? I checked. Yes – 88 degrees and sunny! Hallelujah!
