Wow... my sister is into YOUTUBE now... and I wasn't even the one to introduce it to her ;) Granted she knew about it before, but she hadn't watched it in a while...

If you like General Hospital (yes, the ABC daytime soap), and you like Jason Morgan and Elizabeth Webber (they're my fave 'kinda' couple, aka "Liason" -which btw, I think is one of the better merge/combo names), I found this one. I hadn't watched the soap in a long time so I missed the week that they FINALLY got together - I guess it happened in August? (They had been friends for over seven years, each going through get-togethers and heartaches with other people, and they - *cough* meaning the producers/writers - thought they wrote them getting together once several years ago but die-hard fans will argue that that relationship wasn't even a 'ship! etc./etc. Nevertheless, they had remained platonic until dun dun dunnnn.... that day)... so...

That Next Place - premise is that Liz's husband cheated on her while Jason's girlfriend cheated on him. She went to see him because he had been her friend for so long that whenever she needed to talk, to vent, to "not hide herself" or "pretend that she was okay with whatever was happening" type thing, she always went to see him. So... they finally "got together". Alas, it was "fleeting"... but at least it was special. Not the "tearing off clothes" passion that most one-night-stands in soap operas seem to be.

And I had to just throw in another Jackie Keiko Jackie... eh... Keiko! video that only spans about a minute. It's her Seventeen Magazine catwalk... and well... now we know why she isn't a runway model (well, besides the fact, that she is too "short" to be one). I think the waving and the smiling are Jackie-ish! Cute and kinda funny but not runway model-ish.

Movies. I read a magazine about the upcoming movies; I think they're coming out in the summer. Of course, there is Harry Potter. And Spiderman III - which looks interesting! Fantastic Four though? It didn't look too entertaining, but I'll probably still watch it for Ioan. Natalie Portman's coming out with The Other Boleyn Girl, a historical fictional romance, which looks sorta interesting too. Nothing else really caught my eye, but I wasn't reading too much in depth.

Aw, Jackie's so cute! Though she would do badly as a runway model, waving aside; her walk kinds sucks and her posture is rather bad. But she's just so adorkable so it makes up for it ^^

And they're making ANOTHER Fantastic Four movie? The first one was bad enough! Ah vell. Looking forward to the next HP and Spiderman movies anyway.

haha, I know! When I saw it, I was like "Jackie!" (in terms of personality ;)). I think she only started modeling in Seventeen magazine because she won their annual "search" for a teenage model; so even though she eventually got an agent and started acting/etc., she was exclusively signed to Seventeen for a three-year contract. No experience otherwise :)

Yup, they already made the second FF movie. It kinda sounds stupid though... (and I don't think Jessica Alba looks good with blonde hair anyways) but... *shrug*. HP and Spiderman should make up for it. Not sure what else is coming...

I'm a Jarly fan myself. Have been for over 10 years now.

Really? :) My sister is too! (that's Jason/Carly, right?) She liked them and Brenda/Sonny. I liked Liz/Lucky before he turned out to be a jerk etc (sure he had the excuse of being under Helena's control for a while but still!). And we both hated Journey (Jason/Courtney). I liked Liz/Ric too in the beginning before he turned psycho. I think if the kept the same actress -either Carly #1 or Carly #2- I'd like Jarly better... but I don't really like Carly #4 (I think she's #4?) I guess it would take some getting used to.

Yup, Jason/Carly. I've been a supporter of theirs from day one and probably always will be. My favorite Carly is Sarah Brown, but I think Laura Wright does a pretty good job with her. However, if she's not going to be with Jason, I really don't want to see her back with Sonny, so I'm hoping she stays with Jax a bit longer.

I don't think I really like Sonny with anyone, because I'm also a big Brenda/Jax fan.

I totally agree about Journey, I kind of liked her with Nikolas.

I kind of have the feeling that once it is revealed to everyone that Liz's baby is Jason's it will turn out to really be Lucky's. Maxie probably switched the results.

Yeah, Sarah Brown was good. I got used to Tamara though, and since she left and I stopped watching, I haven't gotten into #4 yet.

Haha... yeah, I liked Brenda/Jax too. :D I thought Sonny and Emily were icky and I can't think of anyone else with Sonny though... I thought Alexis/Jax was good too, even if it was only platonic, and never liked Alexis/Sonny. I guess, Sonny/Sam then? I don't know... I never got into Sam's character either when she first started and up to now. I liked Emily with Zander, and didn't really like it later with Zander/Liz's trist. I don't even really like Emily and Nikolas. I thought Nikolas and Robin might have been cute, way back when there was the first Sarah (Liz's sister) that Lucky liked.

*LOL* That sounds like a soap opera twist! Maxie is turning into GH's "Sami" (from Days of Our Lives), although how would Maxie know Liz slept with Jason? Nothing is too far-fetched in soap opera land. ;P
