Guiding Light


...has been cancelled.

I haven't watched in at least 10 years, but I still find this massively depressing.  It was a hell of a show in its day.

*petses, offers tea* Was this one of your soaps that you weaned yourself off?

*sniff* Yes. I used to sit & watch it w/ my Nana, over tea & Oreos.

I know, I was seriously bummed when I read that. My Great-Grandmother listened to it on the radio, my grandmother, my mother and I all watched it on TV. The only reason I stopped was because the local CBS stopped carrying it (and even then, when I was home, I spent hours trying to rearrange the antennas to pick-up the San Francisco CBS station.) God, I really used to love that show.

*sniffle* Harley and Mallet in the root cellar.

I even followed it when they moved it to 10 a.m. in New York.

Harley and anybody, really. Roger & Holly. *sniffs*

God, I loved Roger. And today is my "gloat over being right about Roger being alive" day, too.

Rat bastards. Can't they cancel "As The World Turns" instead? As much as I loved Tom & Margo, they were never Harley & Alan-Michael/Dillion/Josh/Mallet... and nobody could ever touch Roger.

I was right about that too!! And, y'know, I had written a fanfic about how they should do it, and that was pretty nearly how it happened. I should've sued. If I hadn't been 15.

By the tenth year even my mother was looking at me like I was delusional. HA!!!! God, was I ever smug about that (not to mention ever so pleased that Roger was back [and still Roger.])

I have a feeling we weren't the only ones predicting that. But some of us just had more faith (and staying power) than others.
