Thanksgiving 1981

Yes I know that yesterday's holiday is not only "not" Thanksgiving but I'm off by about 26 years.
But that is where in time the episodes of Ryan's Hope are currently set on SoapNet.
I never watched this show when I was growing up, did you?
I happened across it just two weeks ago and quickly became caught up in the storyline.
DN2 and I watch it everyday even though it is on at 5:00 am and 5:30 am.
We can do it with no problem either, want to know why?
Digital Video Recorder.
Yes, the Time Warner equivalent of Tivo.
I love that we are not held to a 5:00 am wake up time, well one of us is not, and that we can watch it in the evening and skip the commercials.
We got behind and had to watch four episodes yesterday but at half an hour a pop they move along quite quickly.
It's a good story and I'm enjoying going back in time to 1981 and looking at the heavy eye makeup and remembering that's where any sense of fashion I had was truncated.
Good knitting time too.
The Urban Girl bag is almost dry and I'm working on another wrist warmer. I've been trying to use up some of my Lion's Brand Wool-Ease that I have, so I've already made three wrist warmers and a hat, this is the last one and I think I've about exhausted my supply of that yarn.
Thank goodness.
I'll leave you here with a little humor from Pickles.

OHMYGOD!!!! I was sooooo into Ryan's Hope!!! I cried when it went off the air. I skipped school during certain plot lines. I loved the Ryans. I don't get SoapNet!!! Life is cruel.
