I remember him telling me at our 10th college reunion "yeah everything they taught us about being an authentic actor? the best way to work on a soap opera is to forget you ever learned that and just be handsome.. "

1.  Some.  I REALLY need to knuckle down and finish off the baby blanket I've been working on since the new year.  And I'm going to try to pull the carpeting up in the bedroom "hallway" (the word "hallway" is rather overstating the matter).  There's carpet transition taking in both bedroom doorways, the basement doorway and the bathroom doorway--we'll see how cooperative those will be coming up.

2. Yoga pants (until bedtime; then I'll change to shorts), a workout top and a sweatjacket.  And slippers.

3.  You're joking, right?

No, she didn't.  Wireless remote controls for TV predate all four of those soap operas.  The remote went to market in 1955; TEON, the first to air of those shows, began in 1956.

However, I can well believe that your parents didn't have a TV with a remote until well after the debut of even AMC.

Yes; Jeans and a T; I used to work nights eons ago, and when I woke up it was soap opera time on TV. I sort of followed one of those things for a few weeks, just because I was fascinated by the immense awfulness of it.

Yep, didn't have a remote for our TV until probably I was in middle-high school.

Lol, Remote controls were unheard of in the day!  But I can so visualize my mother's whole day too, The kitchen and tv room were combined and she'd have her ironing table up ironing away dad's stuff while dinner cooked or was simmering...  Simpler times! :)

1. Plans for the weekend? -- Let's see. I took today off so it's a three day weekend.  Today: 7 mile run, shopping (bras and shoes), lunch with dh, pedicure, shopping for clothes with The Boy ... and I'll do some work from home in there too.    Saturday: Zumba, farmer's market, bowling with The Boy (league), picking up The Girl's prom dress, The Girl has the ACT (again), clean house, maybe some yard work.   Sunday: long run again, bowling with The Boy for a Big Brothers/Big Sisters fundraiser, grocery shopping.

2. What are you wearing? -- undies and a sports bra. lol  Just finished my run and am cooling down before I hop in the shower.

3. With GH celebrating its 50th anniversary, did you or do you ever watch Soap Opera's? -- I did in high school some. My mom was a pretty big AMC fan, and watched some OLTL and GH.  My grandmother was an AW fan from the day it came on until the day it went off.  So, from being around them I kept up with those, AMC and GH the most.  And, since DOOL came oin right before AW, I got hooked on it, and probably watched it the most.   Haven't watched one in probably 15 years.

Yep, my mother rarely sat down and when she did, she WAS watching some soap opera lol. I am sure she didn't do that though until the house was dusted, vacuumed, laundry in, dinner planned, etc.
