No shame in loving soaps!
Lately, I've noticed there are a large number of folks on my flist who watch and enjoy soaps much the way I do, with a healthy mix of affection, anticipation, embarrassment, frustration and sappiness. We've mostly watched for years -- often off and on -- and our shows tend to make us laugh/wince more often that they make us cry. But we love them anyway, with an obsession and depth of knowledge no one else understands except another soap fan.
So it's time for all of us to get to know each other and squeal and rail and laugh together as we watch. Thus soap_glee is born!
The membership is moderated, so I must approve everyone who asks to join. Of course, everyone on my flist is an automatic yes, but I know several of you have other people on your flist who might also want in -- feel free to spread the word and tell them to come join us! I'm not planning on opening it up much beyond that, though -- just friends and friendsoffriends.
There are no real rules to the community; post whenever you feel like it, about anything soap-related that strikes your fancy. I know most of you are DOOL watchers, so I expect there will be plenty of posts about that. :) I might be throwing in a ATWT post occasionally, just to try to rope you into watching it with me. (CASEY HUGHES, I LOVE YOU!!!) If you want to show off icons, go for it. Use LJ-cuts for spoilers, natch, and since some of us are behind in our viewing, I'd ask you use lj-cuts to talk about episode specifics too, at least for the current week.
That's it. I hope you all join, and enjoy yourselves!
