    My heart actually JUMPED in my CHEST when General Hospital stargted yesterday and that lousy BITCH Nelle looked like she had CROAKED on the roof!! Unfortunately that was NOT the CASE after all……How long are we going to have to put up with her sorry ass?? The only way I can think of to get rid of the SKANK is for Carly or Michael going to Sonny and Jason and just tell them that they can’t tolerate her any longer and just ASK THEM TO GET RID OF THE PROBLEM!!! That BITCH makes me physically SICK and if she is not written off or preferably KILLED OFF the show, then I just might have to STOP WATCHING a Soap that I have faithfully watched and loved since I was 16 years old…..And I am 64 years old now!! Would the powers that be actually want to risk losing such a long time fan?? I HOPE NOT!! The original writers were fabulous but the team they have now REALLY DOES SUCK!! They need to be put on the toad too……I just don’t get why they have such a difficult time coming up with really good story lines!! Right now, just right off the top of my head I can think of at least 5 different ways the story lines could go, and the show would be on it’s way to being great like it was before!! A good place to start would be to unload ALL of the BAD and ANNOYING characters!! They could start with the WORST of the lot which would be Nelle; Jax is an irritating CREEP, Ditto for that damn Peter….they should have let Liesel finish offing tje jerk when she had him in the cabin long ago!! I am NOT finished yet either; Maxie is irritating as HELL and she must go too, That rediculous BRAT kid of Nikolas, Spencer also needs to go. He is an annoying little smart ass and needs to be sent to the closest JUVENILE DETENTION Center for the rest of his MISERABLE LIFE!! Jordan has turned out to be an unreliable LOSER too, so she needs to hit the bricks too!! Ned stabbed Michael in the back so he can go too, Anna keeps waffling back and forth in re Peter and Finn deserves better so if she can’t get her shit together, he needs to give her the heave ho!! Finns daughter Violet is ADORABLE, But they did a good thing getting rid of that horrible mother of hers….Hayden….I never could stand her…..NOT EVER!! At least one very annoying pain in the ass is already gone and that is Kristina, Sonny and Alexis daughter!! Gladys and that Brando person and that Dev person can leave too! I never have understood the whole point of him even being there to start with!! LuLu and Nikolas can go but they need to bring back Lucky Spencer!! And that back stabbing Harmony along with that so called probation officer of Sams; And BRAD…OMG, I thought we were going to get rid of that pain in the Ass in the accident!! And that miserable little BRAT Charlotte Cassedine!! AND THEY SHOULD BRING TRACY Q BACK PERMENANTLY!! I think I have remember all of them!! Definately keep Spinelli and for crying out loud BRING BACK LUKE!!! I still like Laura BUT she is just NOT the Same without Luke and with Kevin!!
