I'm Dead, and I'm Just GIDDY About It!

Hi!  My name is was Emily Quartermaine!  I had a super amazing life.  "You can never be too rich or too thin"?  Could easily have been written just for me!  Crazily pretty and not yet even 30, I had:  a promising career as a doctor (which I only had to spend 42 minutes in medical school to get), a handsome and rich fiancé, a loving mother and a loving-though-morally-questionable brother, great friends, usually fabulous hair, and a ton of mascara and lipgloss.  Other than the occasional flashback to a romantic slip-up a year or so ago (which I agreed never to speak about publicly because it made my mom and passers-by on the street cry), and the unnecessary death of my father a few months back, my entire existence was really fantastic! 

Then some asshole killed me.

And for a minute, I was, like, totally buggin'!  But then I realized:  DEATH IS AWESOME.

My fiance's aunt expressing serious concern about his mental health and well-being?  Hee!

Seeing a newspaper headline, announcing my brutal slaughter at the hands of an unknown killer?  Uproarious!

A detective accusing my fiance of murdering me?  Hysterical!

I'm telling you, death gets SUCH a bad rap.

Watching Natalia Livingston in these scenes, I want to reach through the screen and shake her, yelling, "You're putting the emPHAsis on the wrong sylLABle!"

And while I'm there, I'll beat Bob Guza about the head with heavy objects.  Preferably ones with sharp edges.

Damn Sarah! You took the words right out of my mouth!

Sarah, you are the Awesome Commentator! Feel free to bash all GH characters that say dumb things. I'm cool with it.

There's really no place to post non-post related things, but I just noticed, and wanted to comment on, the Girls Inc. ad---yay! It's a great organization. To keep it GH related: I've been donating to this organization for years, and I can tell you it's a great antidote to GH's narrow view of women! They even have a program in which "Girls learn to analyze critically what they see and hear in the media, advocate for change in entertainment, news, and advertising media, and create images that are more realistic and reflective of their lives."

That was funny as hell and I'm not a Emily fan. I miss AT!

How in the hell did this turn into something about Liz. I didn't agree with what she said, but god some people take things and run with it. NO wonder the TPTB keep this going, it's so talked about. IT WAS ABOUT HAPPY DEAD EMILY! It's funny people can't go a day without talking about her negatively more than they do their favorites positively, which just makes it better for us Liz fans.

But is it worth it Kentisha? Is it?

Personally I'd rather have my favorites talked about in positive terms constantly than run down like Liz just becuase of airtime and a really bad story. But that's just me....and I care about silly things like character history and integrity and show history...so call me crazy.

As a long time Liz fan i'm thrilled with the airtime...I still hate the story and the writing for the character. And i would take a dramatic drop in airtime again if I got the character I fell in love with ten years ago back.

THANK YOU for pointing out how bizarre this storyline is. I mean, how many ghosts are you going to have walking around...speaking of which...what happened to Alan? NL is usually a decent actress, but this sappy performance is hard to defend. I keep expecting someone to wake up from a dream....

I don't get this crap either. I'm trying to be openminded about it and give it a chance..because Id o think Nick and Emily were cute together once although dull and boring. But it is just one big What the ......
She is way too happy and showed no interest in seeing how her family was doing over her death.
