FAVORITE ALBUM?  (AS IN CD, RECORD ALBUM, 8 TRACK, WHATEVER TO YOU CONSTITUTES A COLLECTIONS OF MUSIC ON ONE MEDIUM)  I could never name just one.  I love all sorts of music from Kurth and Taylor to Aerosmith to Pavarotti to Harry Connick, Jr.   I hate all rap and that gothic stuff like Manson.

FAVORITE NON-SOAP HOBBY?  Anything requiring a swimsuit, even if it just means falling asleep on my float in the pool.  I love to sail, though I donít get to do it often.  Iím about to start a class to get my scuba diving certification. 

WHAT SOAPS DO YOU WATCH AND FOR HOW MANY YEARS HAVE YOU WATCHED EACH ONE?  WHAT GOT YOU STARTED?
DAYS:  Since birth.  Everyone in my family watches from my Great-Grandmother on down the line.

GH:  I was at my best friendís house the week that L&L got married and Iíve been hooked ever since.

AMC:  Iíve seen bits and pieces throughout my life, but I became hooked in college with the romance of Erica and MyDimitri.

FAVORITE MALE CHARACTER FROM AMC, GH, OLTL (PAST OR CURRENT Ė ALL SOAPS THAT APPLY)?
GH:  Luke, Ned, Stefan, not necessarily in that order.

DAYS: BoÖI was 12 when Peter Reckell appeared and well, he was a 12 year-olds dream in those days, Harley and all.

AMC:  Dimitri.  A dashing, romantic Count . . .whatís not to love?

OLTL:  Iím not a fan of this show yet, Iíve only seen a couple of episodes since I started getting SoapNet in May, but Iíd have to say that Ben is my favorite character so far because of the way he treats Vicki.

FAVORITE FEMALE CHARACTER, SAME?
GH:  Alexis and Helena

DAYS:  Hope, because Bo loves her.

AMC:  Erica, itís all about Erica, itís her world and we are granted the privilege to live in it.

OLTL: Nora.  Sheís not taking anything from Colin despite the fact that he holds all the cards.

FAVORITE STORYLINE FROM EACH SHOW YOU WATCH (PAST OR PRESENT)?
GH:  L&L, anytime, anywhere!  Also, the WSB v. DVX days.  Sean, Robert and Anna were fantastic!

DAYS:  Bo & Hopeís romance.  Oak Alley, Ďnuff said.

AMC:  Dimitri and Ericaís romance and multiple attempts at marriage.  I loved her drug addiction story.  Dr. Kinder was evil!

LEAST FAVORITE MALE CHARACTER FROM EACH?
GH: Currently Juan.  Heís unnecessary and brings Amber down.

DAYS:  Stefano, heís become a cartoon. I keep waiting on him to drop an anvil on somebodyís head.  Heís just not interesting anymore.

AMC:  Scott.  Boring.

LEAST FAVORITE FEMALE CHARACTER FROM EACH?
GH:  Chloe or Hannah.  Both are boring and irrelevant characters.  If you lift either of them off of the canvas, none of the stories would be effected.

AMC:  Becca.  Please!  Must we suffer through another ABC After School Special about the evils of sex.

DAYS:  Lexi or Nicole.  Iíve never liked either of them.

LEAST FAVORITE STORYLINE FROM EACH?
GH:  Mixed Marrieds.  Started out interesting, but became the Jax & Chloe story when the better actors with more potential storyline were left propping up these two characters.

DAYS:  Ericís sudden decision to leave Salem.  It was lame to have Isabella appear to Eric rather than to her OWN son.

AMC:  VirginVictor.com, because it is centered on Becca.
