Holly's New Website!

It happened again. I fell in love with another soap character. This one also starts with a Z. The character was Zarf (All My Children) who later became Zoe. This transgender woman was the best character to come to daytime TV since... well... Zander (General Hospital). Kudos to Jeffrey Carlson for giving her such heart and making her so believable! Any other actor would've probably fallen flat. The storyline was very entertaining, but also informative. If you've never known anyone who was transgender, this was a total eye opener! This young woman was born a boy and struggled with trying to maintain the lie her entire life, just to please her family and society. But then she met someone who made her realize that hiding was not going to serve her in life. She came out and it was not an easy transition for her. Eventually she began her life as a woman and was happier for it. I hope that everyone who missed this brilliant storyline will visit my website, Zoe's Journey - I created a bio and a one hour documentary that features clips, musical montages and captions. The highlights of the story are there. Hopefully I captured the essence of it.

Because Zoe has left the show I've been missing Jeffrey Carlson's acting (he better get the Emmy next year!!!). So I'm heading to Washington, DC next month to see him play HAMLET at the Shakespeare Theatre Company. It's an expensive trip, so I'm begging for donations. Visit my site to see what a $20 donation will get you! But every little bit helps!!! Enjoy the video teaser for Zoe's Journey...

Slacking Off Again!

Yeah, so it's been over 3 months since my last post. Sorry, but it still feels like October to me. The time has flown by! It's true what they say about life speeding up as you get older. Maybe it's the perspective of things. When you're young, time is so much bigger than you. But when you're older time is a fraction of what you are. And I'm babbling. On to the fun stuff...

Mick is still working on Supergirl & The Legion Of Super-Heroes with Barry Kitson. He's been crazy busy inking all those figures on every page!!! But Barry's art looks amazing, so it's worth it.

Genevieve is enjoying kindergarten very much! She especially loves all the friends she's made this year. We had her 6th birthday party with her whole class at The Jungle this year thanks to them sending us a winning certificate for a free party! I hope we win another one next year. That place is expensive!!! In addition to school, Gen is enjoying her piano classes on The Music Bus that comes to her school each week. They make lessons affordable for everybody!

I have been an insane eBayer and achieved Power Seller status as a Christmas gift!!! Too bad I'm not making a powerful profit. That's okay, I use eBay as a way to market the other things in our life like Mick's website and my t-shirt designs. There are a lot of soap opera fans out there! Glad I can make such fun gifts without infringing on anybody's copyrighted material.

Speaking of soap operas, I've given up on Days Of Our Lives. As much as I adore Stephen Nichols and Mary Beth Evans' Steve & Kayla, I just can't handle the writing on that show. It's sooooo boring. And most of the actors are too over the top. Kudos to the actors who play Billie & Nick. Loved that one night stand!!! Sadly, they aren't enough to keep me taping the show.

One show that now has me totally hooked is ALL MY CHILDREN. What an exciting storyline they have going with the serial killer! Just when you think you know whodunnit, they throw in a monkey wrench! Love love LOVE the trans-gender storyline with Zarf/Zoe!!! Bravo to AMC for taking such a big risk!

We want to remodel (well, sorta) our house this summer. I've started a new blog begging for help, input, advice with creating our dream house on little or no money. The link is to the left, HELP OUR HOUSE.

I'll try to write more sooner than later.
