Throwback Thursday: A Soapy Good Time

I used to love "General Hospital".  And one of the biggest parts of the fandom was every July in Studio City, CA there was the annual "General Hospital Fan Club Weekend" aka FCW.  And for numerous years I attended and enjoyed the silly fun that came from hanging out with your fellow fangirls and seeing all the actors from the show.

Over the years, I made some absolutely incredible friends and even became friends with a couple of actors on the show.  Those friendships continue to this day and I love these people and our history.  The show is a shadow of its former self now and the petty, ugly behavior that eats up fandom runs rampant, but for a while there it was a lot of fun.

So in honor of that...and that I am attending what will be my final soap opera event this Sunday (the 50th Anniversary Past Cast Event), I share one of my fondest memories - A lunch with the deliciously handsome Ted King and one of my most favorite vixens the show ever had, Cyndy Preston.

Get ya geek on!

I'm trying to get back in the blogging saddle! So starting with the simple posting of the Throwback Thursday picture!

In honor of San Diego Comic Con, the Mecca for geeks, I present my first trip to SDCC.  (And I am seriously sulking it up that I am NOT there this weekend.)



 This Star Wars fan was all about finding anything to do with the Force this first foray into SDCC's hallowed halls.  And I found R2-D2...in fact, I found many of them that weekend.  And yes, I did hug every single one that I saw.  This was my first. Love this droid! He is always the droid that I am looking for!



 
I attended SDCC with two friends, Lisa and Mary.  Lisa bought these darling classic Winnie the Pooh hats...we had a mini photo shoot in the Sails Pavilion. This was the final day of the Con and Con hysteria had set in...we thought we were pretty hilarious by this point. (And there were many other pictures in the hotel lobby that proved we were a little crazed.)




Next year, I'm determined to get back out there and celebrate all things geek in San Diego!
