Y&R

I can't believe I am admitting this to the world, but here it is: I have become addicted to The Young and The Restless. The bad part is I am so NOT a soap opera person. But, I guess that's just not true, because they got me. I'm hooked.

Now, I used to watch All My Children a hundred years ago when Cliff & Nina and Greg & Jenny were the hot couples. Tad was a boy. And Phoebe was still alive.

I haven't watched a soap since then, but the ladies in my last office used to have Y & R (that's what the "real" fans call it) on TV at my lunch hour everyday. I didn't watch for a long time and then, slowly, I got hooked. Now, I don't watch it at work (no TV here), but I DVR it (sounds so much more hi-tech than "tape") and watch it when I get home every night.

So, maybe you watch, maybe you don't, but I want to go on record to say I am glad Nick & Sharon heading in the direction of getting back together (Phyllis could just up and disappear!) and I am shocked they really killed Brad off. Okay, whew! That's off my chest and I don't feel so deceptive.

Do you have a dirty little TV secret? Go ahead, spill! Whom am I to judge?

HI and thanks for dropping by.

Growing up my sisters watched General Hospital. I have to admit was hooked on the whole Luke and Laura "Ice Princess" thing.

I played with my sister's barbies when I was little. Does that count for a secret????

I use to record soaps from 12 until 4 p.m. then it got too crazy the story lines so I quit cold turkey.

Days of our Lives baby! And I too am not a Soap Opera person! There's just something about the Bradys that I find so intriguing!

From the time I quit work to having my first baby I was addicted to Days of our Lives. I had to stop watching when my husband told me I talked about it in my sleep :-)

I used to schedule my college classes around All My Kids. Erica and Phoebe rock!

Blogging is my soap opera. It´s just as addicting!

Trish said...

LOL. You have come out of the closet..lol.
I don't watch but I can see how it can become addicting. I watched AMC with Gregg and Jenny too.
I loved this post, it made me laugh.

I love Y&R too! I've been watching it since I was in high school. :o) I can't believe either that Brad is dead. Maybe he has a twin somewhere? LOL

my girlfriend at the time made me watch those reality shows, project runway and top chef. although i loved the Surreal Life. that was amusing and kind of crazy.

i'll be damed before i watch dancing with the stars though. i have to draw the line with that one.

I understand your "addiction," such as it is...I've been known to try to snag some time with my soaps as well! Hey, I got your piece today. Stunning! Thanks again and again...I'm off to have it framed tomorrow a.m. BTW...don't forget Sx3 tomorrow. It has a Texas-sized theme. Something about armadillos?

Thank you for stopping by my blog and offering some words of wisdom! It means a lot to me!


I used to watch the soap Passions but it got cancelled. :(
