This is the one I have been waiting for; the rant of all rants. Knowing where to begin is mind boggling, but I'll figure it out.

When Alexis said of Kristina "She's doing much better, she's gotten her energy back." I laughed so hard I nearly spit out my Starbucks Wild Sweet Orange tea, which would have been a shame.

I was briefly tempted to start on a positive note, but why mess with success? That dress Lois was wearing Friday was the ugliest piece of clothing I have ever seen in my life.

The last good rape on GH was back at the Campus Disco when Luke raped Laura. We watched it on the edge of our seat, and... dare I say... liked it.

You know, when I think of a crypt, I hadn't really considered they would have skylights and candelabra's and books of matches and piles of leaves laying around that you could use to send smoke signals if ever you were kidnapped and locked inside by a maniac. Shows you what I know.

Blabbermouths unite!
Faith could never keep quiet this long. Never. I have seen Faith with a gun to her head being threatened to stop talking or die, and she keeps talking.

He's only mostly dead
AJ was only back in the picture for a day and managed to stir up a whole hornet's nest of trouble for Courtney.

Don't fence me in
Consider this my own personal shrine to Tony Geary. Some of you have written and said "Tamilu, you're biased." Well, dear readers, the tag line of this column that says "This is an opinion column" pretty much assures that I am indeed biased.

Some people call him the gangster of love
Some people call him Maurice, and some people call him Sonny. I call him INTENSE.

This little piggy had a ball
When I saw Rachel call Jax over with the ridiculous 'I got my toe stuck in the drainpipe' story this week, I concluded someone on the GH writing team is a fan of That Girl and probably has the box set on DVD

A grief observed....
Watching the various families of Port Charles grieve the loss of Michael was incredibly heartbreaking. I cried for little Michael, though I didn't just feel the loss of a fictional TV character; all of my own losses filtered into my blubbering.

Send in the clowns
Tamara Braun has made me yearn to commit a crime this week. I want to break in to Emmy Headquarters and just steal an Emmy and hand it to her. She's earned it.

The sweater song
While I do not desire to see Emily naked, I do want to hold the string that will unravel that ugly, baggy, dirty brown sweater. Okay, we get that she's depressed and unnerved from the rape, but c'mon, wouldn't all of her concerned friends be nagging her to change her clothes while they try to persuade her to get counseling???

Magnet and steel
Sonny Corinthos is a magnet. Any being with estrogen is steel.

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Michael's ghost is appearing on the swing set to Carly with messages from beyond, which is odd as he isn't dead.

Bahama mama
It takes more than 3 minutes to travel from New York to Nassau or Freeport. I wish it only took 3 minutes, but unless you have access to a Star Trek transporter, it will take you 3 hours.

Closing arguments
Jennifer Bransford has some big shoes to fill. She seems older than the last Carly, but apparently, isn't that much older (not like when Lucky's age jumped an entire decade.) but at least she seems capable of acting a little; a good sign.

Death by number
Soap Rule # 343; if you hear 5-10 people talking about how much they'd dig it if some certain dude was dead, by weeks end said certain dude will BE dead. Bank on it.

One flew over the cuckoos nest
Why is Reese wearing a straitjacket? Did Nurse Ratched dress her?
Logo
May 16, 2005
We fall down, we get up
We know Sonny to be a man of faith. We have seen him pray, light candles, consult with priests; kneel in chapels crying out to God. And yet...he's a criminal for a living and his hands are covered in blood.

Wedding bell blues
Here comes the bride, but she wasn't dressed in white and she doesn't remember getting married.

Settle down, Beavis
That aside, I'm mad at almost everyone on the show right now. I have gone from giving NuCarly an open-minded chance, to not liking her, to full blown loathing.

Grinchey loves Scroogey
Nikolas is a Prince. Sure, Luke pilfered 15 Million bucks away from the Cassadine's - but one must assume that wasn't ALL their money, right? Emily is a Quartermaine. Her family also has some money, albeit a smaller amount than before AJ embezzled piles away...so Nik's brother and Em's best friend move into what looks to be an old boiler room where they will have to sleep on a pull out sofa

We were merely freshmen
Maxie is graduating from a school she didn't even attend and a whole posse of kids showed up at the hospital in cap and gown to cheer her on and present her with her diploma.

It's time to get away
Tamilu is away this week on vacation. During her time away, we're reaching back in our Two Scoops vault to publish one of her greatest hits.

In a New York minute
I go away for two weeks - all hell breaks loose in Port Charles, and I missed it.

Paging Dr. House
When Reese came to town to find the kidnapped Corinthos children, she was a Federal Agent who, after months of working closely with Sonny, was willing to give up her career him.

A girl can never have...
Lucky certainly was envious, he was mopey and whiney because Jax (who is a gazillionaire) bought some Little Tykes toy for baby Cameron.

The household supplies of criminals
Lorenzo has duct tape. Not one roll of duct tape, not a few rolls of duct tape, but an entire giant box of duct tapes.

Anthony works in a grocery store
I've heard it said that hell is what you hate most, so for me, hell would be packing all my stuff up in boxes and carrying it up and down 3 flights of stairs eternally!

Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
How many morons have to get locked out on the hospital roof before someone realizes that isn't the best spot to arrange meetings?

He knows my name...
Hey Liz! Ever hear of a SMOKE ALARM? How is it that Elizabeth's apartment became totally engulfed in flames from a baby bottle left on the stove?

Sign me up!
Sam is downright traumatized because someone kidnapped her and is going to force her to marry a billionaire and ballroom dance.

Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama
Not only did Nik and Courtney end up on the same island in the Bahamas (there's more than 1 you know) but the same hotel, the same floor, and the same hallway

Turn your face to the moonlight
Once upon a time, Jason Quartermaine was a stand up guy, a decent, peace- loving fellow, a med student, and the pride and joy of his family.

It's so nice to be insane, no one asks you to explain...
The voices in Carly's head are telling her to kill Reese. I wish the voices would tell her to go get another job -- I can't take much more of those wild-eyed monkey glares.

Say it again. Please?
'You lay a hand on me again; you'll find it under your pillow.' Said Lorenzo to Ned after Ned slugged him, because He-Lo slept with She-Lo and then ceremoniously kicked her to the curb.

Wake me up when September ends
Jason wants a normal life. He is torn - the things he is being told about his life make no sense to him.

Look both ways
Worthy of a happy ending is the delicious Lorenzo Alcazar - I love the spark between he and Skye and I really hope those fans get flamed.

Elusive butterfly of love
All of Port Charles, it seems is on a quest to chase the elusive butterfly of love.

Shower the people you love with love
The most unbelievable moment on GH this week: Skye was invited to shower with Lorenzo and said...no???

I just wanna live
If I were being held at gunpoint by a ruthless mobster, I think I would scan the floor for a mini purse tool kit and see if I could take the dudes with a 2 inch long dull screwdriver.

Concorde (and I don't mean grapes)
Who knew? Apparently there is now a Concorde Supersonic Jet shuttle from Maui to Port Charles, New York.

A dream is a wish your heart makes
Perhaps it's merely a coincidence that Disney owns ABC and Liz and Lucky's "dream wedding" was heavily Cinderella themed right as the "Platinum Edition" DVD of Cinderella went on sale. Even so, I am a sucker for romance.

This train is bound for glory
Before this week, had you ever seen anyone in Port Charles take the train anywhere? Me neither.

November 14, 2005
All on board?
I like Carly again. I'm so happy. Thank you ABC. This week as the Train Crash Saga continued, Carly version 4.0 was unveiled.

So small a wind
Everyone wants to believe in Big Scary Love. I know I do.

Endings and beginnings
When the writers decided to pair Jax and Courtney, they heavily invested in their courtship, the dating phase, the silly "Bet you 10 million bucks you can't resist me" game

Things that last
Why do we celebrate cheap flings on soaps and not lasting love? Are we afraid to hold it up and examine it, since so many of us have failed miserably at it in our lives?

If you like Piņa Coladas...
Noah Drake is back, and he's a drunk.

He isn't tame, but he is good
Lorenzo isn't tame, but he is good, too. He turned Diego in to the cops when he discovered he had been the stalker, but he showed up in court and stood up for him in spite of his crimes and sins.

Silver and gold
The last 2 weeks of the year are reserved for our "Best and Worst" columns, and since it's the week of Christmas, I want to begin with the "Best Of" and talk about the gifts GH gave us this year.
