Couple Codes Update January 2018

January 18, 2018

Here’s my latest update on creating a list of couple code aka smoosh names aka the names people create for couples by combing their names. For example Manny is Michelle Bauer Santos and Danny Santos and Marony is Marah Lewis and Tony Santos. I’ve posted the list from other soaps before, but I’ve been trying to post quarterly updates to help get suggestions who I’ve missed. I’ve added more since last time, but please check for your favorites (or even the not so favorite couples you can remember). I’m a long way from having all of them for all soaps here. I think I have finally collected most of the Guiding Light couple codes, but I’m adding those below and am now branching out to collect other soaps. The shows and the names are listed in alphabetical order. All couples are eligible to be included if they are on a daytime soap opera and have a commonly used nickname or code.  I threw a few primetime ones on at the bottom too, just for fun. This list is by no means complete at this point, but I found with my work with the Guiding Light list that people tend to respond more after they see what you have.

I also have reserved a spot on the the list for anyone with a nickname that might be confused with a couple code. For example, on the Guiding Light list I’ve included Cleva for Clone Reva. So here are the couples whose name I’ve remember or had suggested to me so far. If you spot I’m missing one from any daytime soap, please let me know on Facebook, Twitter, in the comments below or by e-mailing me at Robansuefarm@hotmail.com

Rabby Have a Play Date

January 17, 2018

Rabby (Rick Bauer and Abby Bloom) and Manny were closely connected couples. They had a lot of connections:
https://glmanny.wordpress.com/2013/01/10/manny-rabby-convergence

In fact, from a certain angle, Abby and Danny have an incredible amount in common as their relationships solidify with siblings Rick and Michelle respectively.
https://glmanny.wordpress.com/2010/05/24/similarities-abby-and-danny

Rick and Abby took a long time to get together, mostly because it took Rick quite awhile to realize that while she’d been raised a sheltered Amish girl, she was a grown up woman. On January 18-19, 1996 Abby talks to Michelle and becomes convinced she has to wear “English” (what Amish people call non-Amish people) clothes to get Rick’s attention. Eventually when she advances to a bikini, Rick finally gets the message. That’s a ways off yet, but today we get a very cute play or practice date.

 

Thurs., January 18, 1996

Rick walks in on Michelle trying on clothes for a date. Abby got the idea that Michelle could help her dress up to get Rick’s attention. Bridget backs up J.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J98lqjgq-qM (Part 1)

Michelle and Abby are still trying on clothes in the Bauer kitchen and Michelle has left a mess. With all the false omniscience of a teenager Michelle tells Abby she needs to dress differently to catch a man’s attention.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5cAXx48ZK0o (Part 2)

Michelle tries to get J’s attention. It’s kind of embarrassing especially how he only gets interested once he finds out she has a driveable car and she doesn’t seem to mind. Meanwhile Abby had been trying on one of Michelle’s outfits when Rick walks in.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BohW4lrOZrw (Part 3)

Friday, Jan. 19, 1996

Rick talks to Abby. Does she have a boy she’s dressing up for? Abby counters what happens on a date? Michelle apologizes for being a bad tour guide when J seems bored. She brings him a beach in winter. J hands Michelle a line about his mother doesn’t understand him and embarrassingly she laps it up.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cCe_0UuZ0L4 (Part 4)

Rick walks Abby through a date.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTdSOY3_zMg (Part 5)

Rick and Abby continue walking through the date. Rick: “Don’t be sad the movie is over. They’ll make a sequel.”  J and Michelle end up at the lighthouse. He wants to explore.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e-cPh4i7GN0 (Part 6)

Rick and Abby’s pretend date continues.” J and Michelle talk about whether they should explore the lighthouse further or not.

New Years Roundup 2018

January 11, 2018

Let’s check out what I’ve found so far for New Year’s in Springfield. It really seems like the in place to spend New Year’s Eve most years was the Lakeland Country Tux and Gold DressClub. I didn’t double check all of the dates that people gave when they uploaded them and some people seem to be inconsistent whether you take the year from the eve or the day. In other words do you say that events that take place across Dec. 31, 1990 and Jan. 1, 1991, is that dated 1990 or 1991? When I update this there might be changes to dates.

Episodes:

Happy New Year 2018

January 8, 2018

Happy New Year to all my fellow Springfielders. I hope that 2018 has started out on a calm and peaceful note for you.

I must admit that I haven’t done a great job keeping the posts coming this year. I’m sorry about that. My resolution is get back to posting at least 3 times a week. I hope that I’ll be back up to my normal schedule, but since I’ve singularly failed at keeping it up the last 6 months or so I’m starting with a small goal getting back up to speed.

So send me good thoughts and make lots of comments to inspire me.

Christmas Cards from Springfield 2017

December 25, 2017

It’s become a tradition to share Christmas cards from Springfielders. I share them on Facebook and Twitter during Christmas week and then I collect them to share them here. Check out previous years cards from 2014, 2015, and 2016.

I always do a Manny card. This year Bethany Joy Lenz and Paul Anthony Stewart shared a photo of themselves from when they caught up in New York.

I hadn’t done a card yet from our favorite Manny friend couple Dresse (Drew Jacobs and Jesse Blue). When last heard from they were living in New York. There is some implication that they were married and had a kid. When you have a kid you need to be a grown-up and a way to do that and still be involved with art would be to run a gallery. Drew was good at business so I think this might be where they end up. I used a filter to make it look kind of artistic.

I like to include one for a Springfield business. This year I picked the Lakeland Country Club. I recreated the logo.

More often than not a do a LAM card for Lucy Cooper and Alan-Michael Spaulding. I’ve given them his General Hospital character’s daughter in hopes of finding more photos of them together. I also had the opportunity to take some photos of “Hope” at the Bauer BBQ this year. So I created a family Christmas card.

Vanilly (Vanessa Chamberlain and Billy Lewis) are another one of my favorite couples. I did them a card this year too. With a version with the letter written by Vanessa….

And how Billy fixed it…..

Christmas Time Fire at Revas House

December 24, 2017

Did Danny Know?
https://glmanny.wordpress.com/2009/09/21/did-danny-know

We’re around Christmas time. A quick summing up of what is going on when we join the show already in progress. Abby shot Roy Meecham and his friends want revenge, despite the fact that she is facing murder charges. Abby has been living alone in the Bauer garage apartment. Annie is living with Alan, but hasn’t gotten over Josh. Beth is living in the Spaulding Mansion and wants Phillip back, but he is involved with Harley Cooper. Michelle Bauer and Jesse Blue (Messe) are getting ready to elope. They are meeting at the lighthouse before they go away. The interview Alan talks about was an interview of Annie Dutton on a local TV show at Towers about her engagement to Alan that Reva disrupted. Nola, for reasons I’ve never figured out, was trying to breakup Jezz. Michelle is at Reva’s house with Reva and Abby in separate rooms when Roy’s friends throw a Movoltov Cocktail throw Reva’s window starting a fire that will blind Michelle.

There are 3 episodes of the fire. I have them complete, but in multiple parts. I’ve numbered the episodes. I don’t have exact dates. I’ll put my comments before each link to help you find the particular part you want.

Episode 1 – Michelle is visited by Maureen, The boys start the fire.

Episode 3

They are jumping on Annie too quickly. Sure Annie is nuts, but she is rarely counterproductive. If she’d set the fire she’d checked before she started it. “Those scarfs Mama knitted for them,the recordings H.B. made” what awful things to lose. Cassie, you might know what Annie is capable of, but we know what you’re capable of, get down off your high horse. Thank god they found Michelle! Frank meets Cassie for the first time.

Santo Santo Santo for Christmas

December 23, 2017

Once upon a time, I played the song “Holy, Holy, Holy” for a church service. Earlier this year I was surprised to  find it in a hymnal, but with the lyrics in Spanish.

Here are the words in English:

I was shocked to see what they translated to in Spanish. What a perfect song for Manny at Christmas!

Christmas Week 2017

December 20, 2017
Guiding Light Christmas Ornament

Guiding Light Ornament

Every year we pause in our Manny story to celebrate Christmas in Springfield. Christmas is almost always genuinely magical in a soap town, but Springfield, like all the P&G soaps, were family focused so it was even more so.

There are Christmas church services, carolers, outcasts brought in from the cold, and the occasional miracle. My favorite memories of Christmas are Mike Bauer singing and the magical Santa Nick who visited and made miracles.

This year’s additions a hymn that seems made for Manny, A Child’s Garden in Wales, some Christmas fanfic favorites, and the Christmas cards for 2017.

During Christmas check out my posts from previous posts:
