I watched Corrie this morning and I was such a mean girl that I felt as if I were channeling a drunk Paul Lynde. (The over 40 crowd can thank me for that reference later.)
Todd’s getting fat.
Violet looks like she just hauled her ass up from the couch during a 3 day Maury Pauvich marathon to go get herself some more Cheezies from the kitchen. Pregnant or no, she needs to comb her hair and burn that excuse for a sweater. If were Liz I would have sent her home to change.
Lloyd has the table manners of a HORSE. What’s with the elbows on the table hunkering down and talking with your mouth full bit?
The One Thing We Know About David is He Has EXCELLENT Taste in Music
You know, these days I can’t get enough of David. I can’t believe that merely a year ago I was begging for him to be taken off the show because I couldn’t stand looking at that smary face anymore. But now, he’s becoming one of my favourites! The character is complex and interesting (unlike the rest of the family).
This episode finds David listening to ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ (Glacia genuflects) and I so happy that he too recognizes Kurt Cobain as the genius he was and that Nirvana produced sublime poetry delivered from the voices of cherubim.
David asks Audrey if he’ll be allowed to use scissors when he enters hair styling school seeing that he’s a registered psycho now. Audrey tells him to grow up but still defends him to Bill, etc.
Later in the Salon Gayle and Sarah arrive and when David asks how Jason is, all holy hell is poured on him by Sarah. There’s enough argy-bargy (with Sarah asking David how it feels to know that his entire family wants nothing to do with him and that he has no friends and no future) that Audrey sends David home for the day.
Later that evening Gayle finds David in the car sleeping and she tells him to come inside. They have yet another of their painful mother/son talks and she wonders what’s wrong with him. He said he didn’t know and that he felt like he just didn’t know how to be happy (Glacia started to feel sorry for him) and then he continued on about how he can’t help being who he is no more than someone can help having blue eyes (aaaaaaaaaaand Glacia’s sympathy goes ‘poof’ with the fact that he’s trying to suggest he has no responsibility for his actions.).
The conversation ends with Gayle telling David to stay away from the wedding and to give Sarah her day. David responds with, ‘FINE, Why don’t I just DO that, Mother!’
Sean Is a Sneaky Pete
Sean continues to harp on about the baby’s gender and when Marcus shows up Sean tries to weedle the info out of him.
Over drinks Sean moans about how Marcus’s work is so much more interesting than his own, to which Marcus replies that it’s not all hearts and teddy bears. For instance, Vi’s baby is old enough to pick it’s own nose and that it will pee in inside the womb.
Sean says, ‘Typical bloke, isn’t he?’
Marcus replies, ‘Yeah.’ And then, ‘D’oh!’
Sean is happy to know the gender but Marcus, rightfully so, is pissed. He can’t figure out if Sean is stupid or incredibly selfish and says that he really doesn’t like this side of him as he marches out.
You know, again, I have to give kudos to whoever is developing the characters on the show. I think we all know people like Sean who are really cool and fun to hang out with but are kind of needy and selfish and can really, really drain you.
Eat With A Horse
Eileen comes over to babysit so that Jody can go on her big date with Mr.Ed….I mean Lloyd.
Half way through the babysitting detail, Eileen catches Kayleigh sliding down the drainpipe. She tells her to get inside and K tells her that she’ll tell everyone that Eileen hit her. Eileen tosses her ass inside the house anyway.
Kayleigh calls Jody at the restaurant which forces her to leave before she can finish her bag of oats. She gives her apologies to Llyod and speeds off.
Back at the house she finds that K. is fine and called her back for no reason. Jody is livid and for a moment there, I thought K was going to become a victim of shaken preteen syndrome.
What’s Up With Liam
Liam hears a voicemail from Karla and it’s clear that he misses her like the desert misses the rain. He offers to check on the flat for Rosie and while he’s there, he picks up the picture of Karla and Paul and looks thoughtfully at it, which was cool because it was such a 1970’s ‘As The World Turns’ moment.
Then he puts down the picture and goes out to buy Maria some bling.
WHAT the hell is that? John, Papa? What kind of guy psychology is that? Is it guilt? For what? The fact that he has a crush on his sister-in-law? Is that supposed to be cheating on the girl he’s been dating for 15 hours?
In Other News
Doreen dates the world and let’s Rita know that she thinks Norris has a crush on her.
‘No, no, no,’ replies Rita, “Norris is so into me, not you.’
Doreen responds, ‘Pfffft, as if!’
