"You're the most independent woman I think I've ever met." - Brady to Kristen

Yeah, her independence must be the defining feature behind all of her crazy John-obsessed antics over the years. Girl power ain't what it used to be.

"Mommy had to do something." Well, that's one way of putting it, Johnny.

According to Brady, Kristen is an "Independent Woman". Which begs the question "Stefano, how'd your angels get down like that?"

I think Jennifer actually looks really cute today in her cowlneck sweater & high ponytail.

Nick continues to look at the same 2 paragraph article. ALL FUCKING NIGHT. Dude, it's not War & Peace. If you're having that much trouble, look for the damn Cliff's Notes.
Well, in Nick's defense, that article had a different picture of Lucas. So, maybe it was a different article and he had four paragraphs to read. ;)

[Insert some sort of "controversial opinion alert!" emoticon here.]

I'm probably the only person who feels this way, but I really don't mind it when young kids are out of sight and out of mind for extended periods of time on soaps. Unless they're actually being featured in a storyline (as an aside, I also disagree with the notion that children are sacred and should not be featured in "depressing" storylines -- children get sick, children get hospitalized, children die, etc., and I have no problem with such storylines being told), I don't really need to see them...well, ever. The occasional offhanded reference is fine, just to add a sense of realism to a scene, but beyond that, if I never saw any of the kids again until they were actually being featured in storylines, I'd be fine with that.

That said, I do agree that there should be consistency -- if the writers are going to make an effort to show certain kids on a regular basis, they should be making an effort to show every kid on a regular basis. Seeing the kids doesn't bother me, per se -- I just don't find it necessary to see them, so I don't miss them when they're gone. Once they're SORASed and ready to be given regular storylines, it becomes a different matter, but most of the scenes that Johnny has had since the cancer storyline concluded have been nothing more than fluff. Most of the scenes that Ciara has had since that misguided "adventure" with Theo have been nothing more than fluff. Most of the scenes that Theo has had since Lexie's death have been nothing more than fluff.

I don't really need to see fluff.

:run:
You arenít alone. When it comes to kids in Soaps, I can take 'em or leave 'em. Iím perfectly content when they arenít in many scenes. For one, their reaction to something means more because you arenít seeing their reaction to every event (i.e. seeing Johnny's reaction to Will's sonogram pic. Second, a Soap is a daytime drama.... a child's definition of drama is they cant find their favorite stuffed animal. While I understand it in real life, I donít want to watch it on TV in my fantasy land/Salem.

What does get on my nerves though, is when they specifically mention Johnny and Sydney staying the night somewhere but no mention of Allie. While, I donít care to ever see Allie again until she's teenager, I wouldnít mind hearing her name every now and then.

I guess "beds" is the theme of today's episode.

I hope Nick's flashbacks don't just consist of a creepy voice... If it wasn't for the scar, I would think it was all in his head.

It's important that you all know that right after I posted this I received an email asking who the little blond girl was.
From Sami, right?

Is it just more or is the background music softer & far less intrusive on the scenes/dialog today?
