The Young and the Restless...

It's multi-generational. Yes, I am talking about the Soap Opera. I love it. It is my total cheesy guilty pleasure. I have watched it FOREVER. I don't even remember NOT watching it. As a child I remember being home with mom and she would watch the Young and the Restless, the Bold and the Beautiful and As the World Turns. I never got into As the World Turns, but the B&B and Y&R remained with me. When I was in high school, I found out that January Walker also watched Y&R and we would go home on our lunch break and watch it! Dedication my friends.

Nana started it!

I have grown up with the characters and had a few laughs at the fact that Victor and Nikki have been married about 10 times. And it seems like there are only 20 people in the world because they all marry each other. Sharon has been married to Jack and Nick, Phyllis has been married to Jack and Nick and Danny, Nikki has been married to Victor and Jack and David, Victor has been married to Nikki, Hope, Sabrina, Ashley....you get the picture. Oh, and until Neil opened his bar, the only place in town to go eat or have a drink was Gina's.

One of Nikki and Victor's first weddings...

Not their first wedding...
Nick and Sharon early on
Nick and Sharon...A little more recent, but now she's with Jack and he's with Phyllis....but it's all unraveling! Tune in...

I know it sounds silly, but it really is good, and Genoa City is like a real place to me. I know all the history, all the love stories and all the family ties...I also know all the secrets and with whom there is no love lost! If I ever miss an episode and need to know what I missed I can just call nana....you see, she is the picture of dedication. She TAPES it....no DVR, no Tivo....she TAPES it everyday. She sits in her bedroom with the VCR and fast forwards through all the commercials and the storylines she doesn't care for. She is so cute. She doesn't care for Phyllis, so sometimes I'll ask what's going on with Nick and Phyllis and the magazine and she'll say, "I have no idea! I don't like watching her, so I fast forward it!" ha. I love it.

Kind of like Joey and Pacey and Brody and LC, Nick and Sharon are M.F.E.O, but alas, they will never be together forever because a soap opera writer needs ongoing material. Which is why they will make-up and break-up forever. Typical Y&R style....

I can literally see Teenie curled up on her bed, fast forwarding through those paper towel commercials!

I can't remember NOT watching Y&R either! I can go months without watching it and still be able to pick up the storyline when I start again!
