Hi Suds Buds:

Can you believe that Halloween is almost upon us?  Soon it will be Soapdom.com’s first anniversary as Soapdom.com! I can’t believe we have been online as Soapdom for almost a year!  That’s amazing.  Thank you to everyone who participates on the Soapdom message boards and visits us each day for news and feature stories.  Special thanks to all of our subscribed members, who’s paid subscriptions help keep Soapdom in operation.  Your paid subscription gives you chat room privileges and we will soon be offering hosted chats for every soap, plus starting our celebrity chat schedule.  We look forward to chatting with you!

Before you know it Thanksgiving will be upon us and the holiday season will be in full swing.  We hope that you will take advantage of some of the offers we will be sponsoring between now and the end of the year. We have some fun and helpful items lined up that we think will be of interest to you. Stay tuned!  Your clicks and purchases also help keep Soapdom afloat.

But I digress. I can’t believe that this year is winding down.  What happened to the summer?  Where did it go?  My family has been so busy doing whatever it is that we do, that we haven’t taken a vacation.  Living in Los Angeles is both a blessing and a curse. As it is mostly sunny and warm, it always feels like summer and ergo, there is no rush to get away.  When you live a few miles from the beach, there is no rush to get to the beach. It’s always there.  Although being an east coaster most of my life, I am still getting used to the ocean being on the wrong side. LOL 

Did you get away on vacation this year?  Do you have one planned for the holiday season?  Taking advantage of a soap-related event is always a good way to get away for a few days – and to meet your favorite stars as well. 

This past weekend fans from all over the country converged at Universal Studios, LA for the Passions Fan Luncheon.  The morning was jammed with Q&A, autograph signings, a fun clip reel produced by NBC specifically for the fan event, and a scrumptious buffet lunch with an array of desserts to die for!  Then, fans got to spend the rest of the day in the theme park.  I was there and will have full coverage for you later this week.  

Coming up in November is ABC SuperSoap weekend.  If you’re a fan of an ABC soap, and you have yet to attend this event, it is a must. Not only do you get to meet your favorite ABC soap stars, you get to spend the weekend in sunny Florida and take full advantage of the theme park.  Check Soapdom’s Seeing Stars for more on Super Soap!

Speaking of vacations, when was the last time we saw a soap character go on vacation that wasn’t a ruse for an exiting actor, or one who was pregnant in real life and left for maternity leave?  I think it would be fun for soap characters to go on vacation every now and then, and have it be a crucial aspect of a storyline.  What do you think? Let me know in the Criticize the Critic folder on the Soapdom Message Boards.

Past Blast

From ghoul girl to stunning beauty, Nadia Bjorlin has come a long way

As any long time viewer of Days of our Lives knows, Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe) has come a long way from Ghoul Girl to a stunning beautiful women, however in purely soap opera fashion, one can also say that today she is quite the b----.

"You know...it is fun to play those parts, "Bjorlin explained. "I want Chloe to find herself and not be walked over. I want her to be the witty person she is. It is interesting, and this time around I want the guys chasing me."
