current celebrity crush

Did you have a favorite soap opera when you were in high school? One that you watched when your mother wasn't looking and discussed with your friends in excited whispers and hushed tones? Mine was Days of Our Lives. Bo and Hope, Kayla and Steve, Marlena and Roman, Pete and Melissa, Jack and Jennifer. It might have been the foundation of my love for dramatic storylines and the multitudes of characters that distracted me from real life. It seems I still need distractions from real life. I recently discovered a melodramatic and entertaining storyline from All My Children featuring "BAM" (as the internets call them) or Bianca and Maggie. Their chemistry is real, even if the writing and acting of the other characters falls short. Again, thank the internets for YouTube.

My favorite is Elizabeth Hendrickson, who played Maggie.


Why, you ask? She's 5'1", a little wisp of a woman, but look at those eyes. And Eden Riegel (Bianca) claims she has very soft lips too, which I do not doubt.
