EYE ON SOAPS STAFF
NAME: Kelly Bacigalupi (KellyB)
WHAT PRESIDENT WAS IN OFFICE THE YEAR YOU WERE BORN? That Badass LBJ
WHAT IS YOUR ASTRO SIGN? Virgo
IN WHAT STATE DO YOU LIVE? A state of confusion! Ha – no really,
MARRIED? Yes – for 18 years to the Texas Young Optometrist of the
Year – (shameless publicity slut)
FAVORITE TV SHOW(s) WHEN YOU WERE A CHILD? This probably sounds
weird, but M*A*S*H was my numero uno.
WHAT DO YOU WATCH PRIME TIME? A mixed bag – Las Vegas, The O.C.,
Extreme Home Makeover (I could eat Ty with a spoon! – rrrrowl), Boston
Legal and Desperate Housewives.
LAST BOOK YOU READ? I just finished Friday Night Lights and I’m
trying to find time to read Life Strategies by Dr. Phil. I’ve also got
the Da Vinci Code gathering dust beside my couch. I’m also a sucker for a
good bodice-ripper on occasion – beats the hell out of reading the
Communist Manifesto for my European Political Theory class. ;-)
FAVORITE ALBUM(s)? U2 Rattle and Hum, Prince’s Purple Rain, - I
really don’t buy much music anymore – just steal it from the internet (shhhhh!)
but I’ve got a music guru who hooks me up with some really fab stuff.
Lately I’ve been listening to 311, Rehab, old Sublime stuff, Jack Johnson
and Flaw. As you can see, my schizophrenic tendencies run towards both
literature and music.
FAVORITE NON-SOAP HOBBY? Messing around on the internet and
fantasizing about having someone come clean my house on a regular basis.
WHAT SOAPS DO YOU WATCH AND FOR HOW MANY YEARS HAVE YOU WATCHED EACH ONE?
WHAT GOT YOU STARTED?
I only watch
General. And sometimes that’s quite a trick given how busy I am. But I
started way back in the day, about 1980 while in Jr. High. Drifted off a
little from time to time but it was easy to catch an eppy every now and
then and still know exactly what was going on. Came back in a major way
in 1993 with the return of Luke, Laura and the only real Lucky (J.J.) –
damn, now I just really depressed myself!
FAVORITE MALE CHARACTER FROM GH?
Character singular? Shoot - I guess that would be Luke, just on sheer
endurance. But with all the vacation time he takes, I get a second
choice, so I’m gonna say right now it’s Dillon. Laughter is very sexy.
Oh hell, I’m gonna invent a new category: Fave Male Character that the
TIIC didn’t keep: JERRY JACKS!
FEMALE CHARACTER FROM GH?
Alexis – Fave that the TIIC didn’t keep: Lucy Coe
FAVORITE STORYLINE FROM
GENERAL HOSPITAL (PAST OR
PAST: Tie – Liz & Lucky (the original) and Stone’s Death from
Any of them that don’t
feature Sonny & Carly – which doesn’t leave very many to choose from!
LEAST FAVORITE MALE CHARACTER FROM
Justus, with Diego pulling up a close second
LEAST FAVORITE FEMALE CHARACTER FROM GENERAL HOSPITAL
Tie: Gia (in any form) and Sarah Webber (ditto)
LEAST FAVORITE STORYLINE FROM GENERAL HOSPITAL?
category where I have to pick just one?? Um, everyone says “Casey the
Alien” – it was just that outstandingly bad. Currently it would have to
be “Who get’s Lila’s Fortune” Pee, and may I say U.
