    Speaking of hair in soaps, generally…maybe hairdos where the actors aren’t continually pushing their locks out of their faces and eyes?

    I hate to say it, but DAYS OF OUR LIVES has HAD it’s day – Maybe it’s me, I know soaps are silly, and I’m not growing younger and I remember the good ole’ days of ALL MY CHILDREN – of course, as I said, I was younger and even though they were preposterous even then, I enjoyed them. Now, watching Days of Our Lives, it’s so ridiculous, or maybe in today’s modern high-tech World it just doesn’t make it – and the writing on Days is just awful. How it got nominated for anything is in itself a wonder.
