The Weekly Downer: Again – people who don’t return phone calls. I have a contractor who I left a message for about 2 weeks ago. Too late – even if he calls me back, I can’t do business with him. If he can’t be bothered to call me when I’ve got paying work for him to do, he sure as hell isn’t going to call me back if there’s a problem after the job is done.
Yesterday Chelsea Clinton married Marc Mezvinsky in Rhinebeck NY. But did you know there were other things going on in the area? For instance the church I grew up in (that my parents still faithfully attend) had their annual picnic. My Dad was the main entertainment….

It has been confirmed that Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo (she got married again, I didn’t know that until I started writing this!!) will be reprising her role as Brenda Barrett on General Hospital on August 11, 2010. I am ecstatic! She originated the role in 1992. She left the show in 1998. (She briefly returned in 2000 and had another short stint from 2002-2003) This time she’s supposed to stick around for a while, but I haven’t read anywhere anything about the terms of her contract to know how long. (If any of you have, please comment and let me know!)
In honor of Brenda coming back SOAPnet will be having The Best of Brenda and Sonny starting at 3PM on August 15th. Also if you click the SOAPnet link it will bring you to a page that has 25 Classic Brenda Moments.
So who do you think Brenda will end up with on the show? Who do you want her to end up with?Sonny? Jax? Jason? Johnny? Nicholas? Dante? Matt? Steven? Max? Lucky? Coleman? Vote in the polls below. Please vote once for each question. We’ll discuss the results prior to her initial air date of August 11th.
Personally I loved the way it was filmed! David Slade did an exceptional job as director. Especially the scene where they chased Victoria (Played by Bryce Dallas Howard – Ron Howard’s daughter)through the woods and also the big fight scene. Watching them fly through the air was awesome!
I also really enjoyed the scene where Edward and Jacob were talking in the tent while Bella was sleeping. Whatever they did to Edward he actually looked cute for a change!
They have discussed online that the 4th book of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series Breaking Dawn will be filmed as 2 movies. This book is the most graphic of the 4. I’m not sure how they’re going to film it and keep it at a PG-13 rating.

Soap Opera Digest has a poll at www.soapoperadigest.com/stylepoll/insider but I still want to know what you think of them. I think I’d look good in 2 and 3, but the color of 2 is a little two orangy for my taste…. I love the style though!!
I totally ripped this off of soapoperadigest.com but I wanted to know what you guys think!! So tell me – which is your favorite?
While brainstorming about what to write blogs about, I wanted to find a way for my readers to get to know some of the awesome people who I know. The best way I could come up with was an interview series.
Meet my friend Jessica. I’ve known Jessica since we were in high school. We lost touch after graduation, but we were able to reconnect on Facebook last year. So without further ado – get to know Jessica.
Jessica & Gary on their wedding day ~ February 14, 2004
Relationship Status: Married
Children: Giselle 4 years old
Occupation: Stay at Home Mom
What is the most challenging part of your job? trying to keep a 4 year old from not being bored
We’ve known each other since high school. How do you think you’ve changed since then? Well I am not the wild child I once was, becoming a mother has mellowed me
You’re a stay-at-home Mom. How do you think this will impact your daughter? I think being home with her shows her a surplus amount of love and support and will give us a greater bond.
The Traver Family
What do you think is the biggest challenge of being a stay-at-home? Wondering if my parenting skills are up to par, and hoping that I will instill the best in my daughter. There is no one to pat you on the back, since I feel most husbands feel its not a job.
Giselle ~ October 2009
Your daughter Giselle just turned 4. How do you feel about her growing up and going to school next year? Giselle- Its going to be hard to let her leave the nest, but since she is enrolled in pre school now, I think that will ease my pain. I feel that she is developing a great head on her shoulders, she knows whats right and wrong. I feel she will become even more independent, and I feel that will be great as I do not want her to rely on Mommy and Daddy for everything.
Do you have plans to have another baby? yes one day
What’s guaranteed to make you laugh? Well hands down my brother and my husband. They are always guaranteed to have some story about work or what has happened in their daily lives. Bad luck follows them I guess
Maurice Benard as Sonny Corinthos on General Hospital
