The Most Shocking Shock Of All!
Contrary to popular belief, the Rylee Wedding did not completely sap me of my will to live, watch, or blog about All My Children, although I can see why you'd assume that, since it was a total ugh. A total, horrifying, saccharine ugh.
No, my AMC hiatus came down to...well, procrastination and laziness. Perhaps Rylee-induced depression would have been a more compelling excuse after all! But really: with AMC's entertainment factor being what it is (that specific number is NONE), it was all too easy to just put off watching and writing. Because what would I write, you know? Entire walls of text consisting of the words SNORE and BORE?
HOWEVER! During yesterday's episode, something major happened. Something epic. Something that I didn't think I'd ever see before the show's demise (...or is it?): Marissa Tasker was entertaining.
Marissa: I have been running ever since I found out that all those wonderful things JR did for me came from you. No, no maybe it was even before that. When we went away with the kids and you told me how you felt. Or maybe it was even when we were trapped in that closet and we had to depend on each other to surivive I knew something was going on even then, but I just couldn't accept--I'm talking too much, aren't I?
I KNOW! I KNOW! I didn't believe it either! The girl goes years without having a single personality trait and then all of a sudden, I'm antsily awaiting today's episode to see the follow-up to that kiss. It's a world gone mad!
